Digital Counterfeiting: States Regulation Of Federal, Foreign & Digital, Ralph E. McKinney, Lawrence P. Shao, Dale H. Shao, Dale C. Rosenblieb Jr. 2016 Marshall University

Digital Counterfeiting: States Regulation Of Federal, Foreign & Digital, Ralph E. Mckinney, Lawrence P. Shao, Dale H. Shao, Dale C. Rosenblieb Jr.

Ralph E. McKinney

The relatively recent appearance of Internet-based transactions necessitated the develop of digital forms of payment. These payments have evolved into various forms, including digital currency. This paper discusses the regulatory authority and/or lack of authority, of the sovereign States of the United States to regulate the counterfeiting of financial instruments used as currency, including digital currency. Federal and Foreign (non-U.S.) currencies are explicitly examined. Some digital currencies are not regulated or authorized specifically by a government. Can a currency without formal codification from a government be regulated by a State? As financial transactions have shifted historically from various ...

RESULTS: As users implement and integrate electronic health records, there is an evolution in their focus from technology acceptance to structural adaptation ...


A Life-Cycle Perspective Of Professionalism In Services, Benjamin Lawrence, Jie J. Zhang, Janelle Heineke 2016 University of Vermont

A Life-Cycle Perspective Of Professionalism In Services, Benjamin Lawrence, Jie J. Zhang, Janelle Heineke

Benjamin Lawrence

In this article, we develop a professional service life cycle model to describe the changes in professional work over time. We explore the drivers of these changes through an in-depth longitudinal case study of one specific professional service – Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) consulting. We focus on understanding the evolutionary path of LEED consulting work as a result of its knowledge base, community and response to market and technological forces. Case evidence demonstrates an inherent tension between innovation and commodification resulting from multiple demands through various developmental stages. The life cycle model has important implications for value-creation in professional ...


Effects Of Team Cognition And Constraint On New Product Ideation, Tanawat Hirunyawipada, Audhesh Paswan 2016 University of Dayton

Effects Of Team Cognition And Constraint On New Product Ideation, Tanawat Hirunyawipada, Audhesh Paswan

Tanawat Hirunyawipada

Idea generation is a critical activity in new product development. This study investigates the effects of ideation team's cognitive depth (specialization) and breadth (diverse expertise) as well as goal constraint on the generation of new product ideas. Focusing on the determinants of new product idea development helps articulate the mechanisms to generate more useful and novel product ideas. The findings indicate that specialization and diverse expertise affect idea novelty directly, albeit differently. Goal constraint helps enhance the usefulness dimension of new product ideas, but has little effect on the newness dimension of the ideas. Finally, goal constraint helps harness ...


Individuals Approaching Retirement Have Options (Literally) To Secure A Comfortable Retirement, Bryan Foltice 2016 Butler University

Individuals Approaching Retirement Have Options (Literally) To Secure A Comfortable Retirement, Bryan Foltice

Bryan Foltice

This article examines the critical final five-year period leading up to retirement and analyzes whether traditional asset-allocation strategies effectively and consistently assist individuals in reaching their retirement income goals as they approach retirement. These traditional strategies are evaluated against alternative, option-based investment strategies that assure a certain amount of retirement income, after adjusting for inflation, while maximizing stock participation with the remaining funds in the portfolio through the use of options. In this simulation, we find higher overall expected yields in the traditional investment strategies over the evaluated five-year period. However, after applying a constant relative risk aversion (CRRA) coefficient ...


In Equations We Trust? Formula Learning Effects On The Exponential Growth Bias, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer 2016 Butler University

In Equations We Trust? Formula Learning Effects On The Exponential Growth Bias, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer

Bryan Foltice

This paper evaluates the possible benefits and drawbacks of the formal formula learning of compound growth as it pertains to eliminating, or at least reducing, the exponential growth bias in various household savings and debt decisions. In our main experimental study, we determine if the ability to calculate the simple compound savings formula only assists in its direct area of application with an available calculator, or if this knowledge extends into similar exponentially-based savings and debt decisions when either a calculator is prohibited or when the formula is unknown. In the process of tackling this research question, we develop a ...


Profitable Momentum Trading Strategies For Individual Investors, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer 2016 Butler University

Profitable Momentum Trading Strategies For Individual Investors, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer

Bryan Foltice

For nearly three decades, scientific studies have explored momentum investing strategies and observed stable excess returns in various financial markets. However, the trading strategies typically analyzed in such research are not accessible to individual investors due to short selling constraints, nor are they profitable due to high trading costs. Incorporating these constraints, we explore a simplified momentum trading strategy that only exploits excess returns from topside momentum for a small number of individual stocks. Building on US data from the New York Stock Exchange from July 1991 to December 2010, we analyze whether such a simplified momentum strategy outperforms the ...


The Impact Of Board Structure On Ipo Underpricing, Steven Dolvin, Jack Kirby 2016 Butler University

The Impact Of Board Structure On Ipo Underpricing, Steven Dolvin, Jack Kirby

Steven D. Dolvin

Prior research has examined the impact of board structure on firm performance and found that characteristics such as board size affect both operating and stock price performance. Existing research has concentrated primarily on performance in periods well removed from a firm’s initial public offering (IPO), and relatively little research has examined the impact of board structure on the stock price performance of IPOs, particularly with regard to characteristics other than board size. This study fills this gap, finding that the key board characteristic is the percentage external directors on the board. The authors find that the greater the percentage ...

Banks_Expected_Equity_To_Asset_Ratio_Bounds_Under_Foreign_Exchange_Risk.Pdf, Martin Egozcue, Luis Fuentes García

Martin Egozcue

In this paper, we develop optimal bounds of the expectation equity-to-asset ratio
when the bank faces foreign exchange shocks. These bounds can be established with
limited information on the underlying stochastic foreign exchange rate. Specifically,
we are interested in finding the highest lower bound on the expectation of this ratio,
as it indicates the worst case scenario of a bank’s net worth. Comparative statics
of these bounds, when the moments of the foreign exchange rate distribution vary,
are studied as well. We characterize the conditions under which the expected equity
ratio remains unchanged by foreign exchange rate movements.We ...


Macroconstants Of Development: A New Benchmark For The Strategic Development Of Advanced Countries And Firms, Andrey Bystrov, Vyacheslav Yusim, Tamilla Curtis 2016 Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics

Macroconstants Of Development: A New Benchmark For The Strategic Development Of Advanced Countries And Firms, Andrey Bystrov, Vyacheslav Yusim, Tamilla Curtis

Dr. Tamilla Curtis

This research proposed a new indicator of countries’ development called “macroconstants of development”. The literature review indicates that the concept of "macroconstants of development" is not used at the moment in neither the theory nor the practice of industrial policy. Research of longitudinal data of total GDP, GDP per capita and their derivatives for most countries of the world was conducted. An analysis of statistical information has been done by employing econometric analyses.

Based on the analysis of the statistical data, which characterizes the development of large, technologically advanced countries in ordinary conditions, it was identified that the average acceleration ...

Strategies For Retaining Employees In The Hospitality Industry, Melvia Edna Scott 2016 Walden University

Strategies For Retaining Employees In The Hospitality Industry, Melvia Edna Scott

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Employee retention is a critical issue for business leaders. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported over 4.5 million employee separations in 2014 because of resignations, layoffs, or terminations. Hospitality managers face some of the lowest employee retention rates of any industry, which leads to poor customer satisfaction and decreased profitability. The purpose of this multiple case study was to explore the perceptions of 3 hospitality managers from 3 different mid-sized hospitality organizations in Brevard County, Florida. The conceptual framework for this study was built upon motivation theory; existence, relatedness, and growth theory; and expectancy theory. The data ...


Simulation Of 48-Hour Queue Dynamics For A Semi-Private Hospital Ward Considering Blocked Beds, Wei Chen 2016 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Simulation Of 48-Hour Queue Dynamics For A Semi-Private Hospital Ward Considering Blocked Beds, Wei Chen

Masters Theses May 2014 - current

This thesis study evaluates access to care at an internal medicine unit with solely semi-private rooms at Baystate Medical Center (BMC). Patients are divided into two types: Type I patient consumes one bed; Type II patient occupies two beds or an entire semi-private room as a private space for clinical reasons, resulting in one empty but unavailable (blocked) bed per Type II patient. Because little data is available on blocked beds and Type II patients, unit-level hospital bed planning studies that consider blocked beds have been lacking. This thesis study bridges that gap by building a single-stream and a two-stream ...
