Acquisitions, Management and Efficiency in Rwanda’s Coffee Industry


It is widely accepted that there are persistent performance differences (PPDs) among seemingly similar enterprises (Syverson, 2011). These differences are not only documented in developed markets (Syverson, 2004) but also in developing countries where they tend to be more pronounced (Hsieh and Klenow, 2009).

The existence of PPDs is in fact the fundamental starting point for recent work in productivity growth, trade, industrial, and organizational economics. While these patterns are now being documented across a range of markets, what causes these performance differences, however, is still an open question.
