Bayesian Inference For A Periodic Stochastic Volatility Model Of Intraday Electricity Prices, Michael Smith 2009 Melbourne Business School

Bayesian Inference For A Periodic Stochastic Volatility Model Of Intraday Electricity Prices, Michael Smith

Michael Stanley Smith

The Gaussian stochastic volatility model is extended to allow for periodic autoregressions (PAR) in both the level and log-volatility process. Each PAR is represented as a first order vector autoregression for a longitudinal vector of length equal to the period. The periodic stochastic volatility model is therefore expressed as a multivariate stochastic volatility model. Bayesian posterior inference is computed using a Markov chain Monte Carlo scheme for the multivariate representation. A circular prior that exploits the periodicity is suggested for the log-variance of the log-volatilities. The approach is applied to estimate a periodic stochastic volatility model for half-hourly electricity prices ...

United Against Corruption: The United Nations Global Compact’S Principles And Strategies Against Local And Global Corruption., Marco Tavanti 2009 DePaul University

United Against Corruption: The United Nations Global Compact’S Principles And Strategies Against Local And Global Corruption., Marco Tavanti

Marco Tavanti

This chapter considers the practices and strategies behind the United Nations Global Compact’s tenth principle against corruption. It critically analyzes how the exclusion of all forms of corruption, including extortion and bribery, draws on the conviction that the private sector shares responsibility for the challenges of eliminating corruption worldwide. It discusses how, from the perspective of the Global Compact, corruption is a hindrance to poverty reduction and sustainable development. It finally argues that this system has been instrumental to promote a worldwide culture of accountability and transparency through partnerships between businesses, public sectors, nongovernmental organizations and academic institutions.


How The Lack Of Prescriptive Technical Granularity In Hipaa Has Compromised Patient Privacy (Hipaa Ehr (Electronic Health Record) Systems Security Recommendations), Tim Wafa 2009 Loyola Law School

How The Lack Of Prescriptive Technical Granularity In Hipaa Has Compromised Patient Privacy (Hipaa Ehr (Electronic Health Record) Systems Security Recommendations), Tim Wafa

Tim Wafa

This paper argues that HIPAA legislation has a severe flaw within its architecture; a flaw which is severely compromising patient privacy. Although the drafters of the legislation recognized the importance of providing comprehensive privacy legislation at the federal level (to improve uniformity amongst states), they failed to recognize the importance highly specific ("granular") technical requirements play in facilitating improved privacy for patients. This paper suggests that HIPAA rules surrounding technology implementation give too much latitude to covered entities. Consequently, the rules fail to provide adequate protection to protected health information. HIPAA rules should be amended to mandate baseline technical granular ...

Dienstleistungen Für Independent Living: Kundenanforderungen, Potenzialbewertung Und Handlungsempfehlungen, Philipp Osl

Philipp Osl

Trotz intensiver Suche nach Lösungen, die ein Independent Living, d.h. ein unabhängiges und selbstbestimmtes Leben im Alter bei hoher Lebensqualität, ermöglichen, haben bislang nur wenige Geschäftsideen den Markteintritt auf breiter Front geschafft. Independent Living gilt weiterhin als Wachstumsmarkt und damit als Hoffnungsträger für viele Branchen. Hinsichtlich der Wege zur Erschliessung dieses Potenzials besteht aber grosse Unsicherheit. Um zukünftige betriebswirtschaftliche Innovationen im Bereich von Independent Living zu unterstützen, untersucht das vorliegende Buch die Nachfrage nach verschiedenen Dienstleistungen sowie die Kundenanforderungen an die unterschiedlichen Services. Im Rahmen einer Marktanalyse bestimmt es das Leistungs- und monetäre Marktvolumen für haushaltsnahe Services sowie ambulante ...

Was There A “Small-Bank” Anomaly In The Great Crisis Of 2007-09?, Paola Bongini, Giovanni Ferri, Punziana Lacitignola 2009 University of Milan-Bicocca

Was There A “Small-Bank” Anomaly In The Great Crisis Of 2007-09?, Paola Bongini, Giovanni Ferri, Punziana Lacitignola

Paola Bongini

Drawing on a large set of listed banks from Europe, the US and Japan we start noticing that smaller-sized banks suffered less than larger banks in conjunction with the unfolding of the Great Crisis of 2007-09. Was this a small-bank anomaly analogous to the classic small firm effect? We conjecture that what seems to be a small bank anomaly might, in fact, signal a generalized market reassessment of the banking business model and tested whether stock markets penalized less the banks that kept more rooted to the traditional “originate-to-hold” (OTH) model while forgoing the opportunities disclosed by the “originate-to-distribute” (OTD ...

Evaluatie Van Het Nieuwe Werkervaringsprogramma. Een Analyse Van De Organisatie En Financiële Positie Van De Leerwerkbedrijven, Peter De Cuyper, Laura Jacobs, Wim Van Opstal

Wim Van Opstal

Werkervaring is al vele jaren een belangrijk instrument voor de integratie van langdurig werkzoekenden op de arbeidsmarkt. Deze maatregel kreeg tot voor kort vorm in het Werkervaringsplan-plus of WEP+. Op 1 januari 2009 trad een nieuw kader voor werkervaring in werking, waarmee een einde kwam aan meer dan tien jaar WEP+. Het nieuwe werkervaringsprogramma heeft als belangrijkste doelstelling een evenwaardige begeleiding voor elke WEP-plus werknemer te realiseren, ongeacht de plaats waar de werkervaring doorgaat. Daarnaast wordt de focus sterker op uitstroom naar het Normaal Economisch Circuit (NEC) gelegd. Om bovenstaande doelstellingen te bereiken, werden inhoudelijke, organisatorische en financiële wijzigingen aangebracht ...

Predictable Responses In Currency Markets To Macroeconomic News: A Trading System Approach, Bruce Vanstone, Warwick Schneller 2009 Bond University

Predictable Responses In Currency Markets To Macroeconomic News: A Trading System Approach, Bruce Vanstone, Warwick Schneller

Warwick Schneller

This paper analyses how the release of a macro news event affects exchange rate behaviour. The event examined was the US non-farm payrolls announcement and the British Pound (GBP)/ US Dollar (USD) were the selected currency pair. A trading system model was developed based on a formal methodology previously applied to equity markets. The system examined the currencies reaction to the announcement in determining whether any behavioural patterns were present. Based on the trading system, no exploitable trading patterns were found.
