PhD Defence
Guided by the question - how does the bounded rationality of decision-makers shape firm formalization decisions? - this thesis seeks to improve our understanding of when and why informal (unregistered) firms formalize. To this end, the thesis consists of three research papers that employ different methodologies and data to propose and test a behavioral perspective to firm formalization.
