A population of agents is stratified in a two-layer status hierarchy, and they form couples to participate in contests to win a prize (of recognition). Partners in a couple can have equal or different status, they compete together against all the other couples, and possibly also between them to appropriate the prize. Status differences generate inequalities due to an external bias in evaluation of the contestants -- the Matthew effect -- and to a bias internal to the couple due to the asymmetry ...

This article focuses on the dynamic relationship between the occupancy of a high-status position and the development of organizational capabilities. If, on the one hand, the cumulative advantage inherent in a high-status position gives rise to greater competitive strength, on the other hand, some scholars have emphasized how occupancy of a well-defined market position, such as a high-status one, weakens competitive intensity by reducing the motivation to compete aggressively. By integrating both...

The relationship between an actorOs status and his/her decision to conform to extant social norms of behavior or to deviate from them is a common theme in the managerial and sociological research. Drawing on previous studies that have highlighted the presence of a Ushaped relationship between status and nonconformity, whereby low-status and high-status actors are more likely to deviate from accepted norms of behavior, this paper aims at investigating how reputation moderates the relationship bet...

In this study, we identify the effects of reputation and status by determining how they are differently valued by organizations that are concurrently pursuing different goals. Building on research on intangible assets and on aspiration levels, we develop a framework to explain organizations’ valuation of resource providers. We expect organizations to value resource providers who possess a specific type of intangible asset higher as their performance, relative to aspirations, decreases on the out...
