An Empirical Analysis of the Vulnerability-Efficacy Tradeoff
This study examines and quantifies the relationship between three main factors: globalization, inter-firm dependence, and efficiency driven operational strategies, which improve firm performance while simultaneously increasing firm vulnerability. Using archival data, we analyze these relationships by quantifying their non-linear effect on profitability, thereby providing evidence of the tradeoff.
