My work on the organizational architecture of SME banks in 1920s Netherlands has been published in Business History Review.
The article, which appears in the winter edition of volume 92/2018 of the journal, looks at the impact of the organizational choices made by SME banks (middenstandsbanken) on their performance during the Dutch financial crisis of the early 1920s.
The Netherlands' SME banks chose a variety of enterprise forms and shareholder liability regimes. These banks also enjoyed a variety of different outcomes in the crisis. I attempt to uncover the nature of the relationship between their organizational architecture and their financial performance.
