    Image Quality of plus-x film processed in a monobath solution containing an inorganic silver complexing agent ( sodium thiosulfate ), was compared to plus-x film processed in an organic silver complexing agent ( mercaptoacetic acid ). A control run using DK-50 was also made. The image quality of the film was best with DK-50 and worst with mercaptoacetic acid. Image quality was determined by the results of the following tests: 1 ) Resolving Power 2 ) Acutance 3 ) MFT 4 ) Granularit

    Skill vs. Luck in Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital: Evidence from Serial Entrepreneurs

    This paper argues that a large component of success in entrepreneurship and venture capital can be attributed to skill. We show that entrepreneurs with a track record of success are more likely to succeed than first time entrepreneurs and those who have previously failed. Funding by more experienced venture capital firms enhances the chance of success, but only for entrepreneurs without a successful track record. Similarly, more experienced venture capitalists are able to identify and invest in first time entrepreneurs who are more likely to become serial entrepreneurs. Investments by venture capitalists in successful serial entrepreneurs generate higher returns for their venture capital investors. This finding provides further support for the role of skill in both entrepreneurship and venture capital.
