''Stand'alone' firms in inter-firm network - An evidence from India''
( 2016, Vol. 36 No.2 )
The small world approach of analyzing networks ignore the isolated nodes. The paper studies whether ownership structure like affiliation to business group is related to firms inclusion in the director interlock driven network in India. Using a sample of listed firms in India, I find that group firms are less likely to be isolated in the network vis-a-vis standalone firms.
Keywords: Inter-firm network, business group, director interlocks
