Economic Commentary

Mergers, Acquisitions and Evolution of the Region's Corporations

Mergers and acquisitions have both positive and negative effects on a region’s industrial structure. The authors use a sample of 37 companies to discuss the effects of mergers and acquisitions on three key metropolitan areas in the Fourth Federal Reserve District.

The views authors express in Economic Commentary are theirs and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland or the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
