policy of very small countries, and they might, furthermore, open some new avenues for future economic research. Many people have been directly or indirectly involved in this pro- ject, and it would not have been possible to start and to finish this work successfully without two important prerequisites. First, the support of Prof. Manfried Gantner was excellent throughout the whole time, and it was and is a pleasure to work with him also apart from this study. Our discussions on the subject were always fruitful, and I could also draw heavily on some ideas of his prior work, which were laid out in Gantner and Eibl (1999). Second, I gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Gedächtnisstiftung Peter Kaiser (1793–1864). Without it, this stu- dy would not have been possible. There are, however, a lot of other people who have contributed to this work and to whom I owe many thanks. The comments of and dis- cussions with Prof. Gottfried Tappeiner and Matthias Sutter enhanced this study significantly. Matthias is also responsible for winning me over to some interesting research projects besides this book. Although the progress of this study suffered slightly from these projects, I am grateful for the experience I gained, the resulting list of publications, and the pleasure of working together with him. I also thank the participants of the Economics Research Seminar at the University of Innsbruck and the participants of a lecture at the Liechtentstein-Institut, where I presented parts of this work and received lots of interesting comments, especially for Chapters 3 and 5. Natalie Saringer and Lee Anne Oberhofer contri- buted a lot during the last stage of this work by considerably improving my English style. Norbert Jansen, my editor at the Verlag der Liechten - steinischen Akademischen Gesellschaft, provided entthusiasm and just the right amount of pressure. I also owe a great debt of gratitude to my family, Natalie, my friends and my colleagues at the university, who made the experience of writing a dissertation an enjoyable one and who have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement for me.
