The Impact Of Shipping Charges In Online Auctions: Evidence From Electronics Auctions On Ebay, Mikhail Melnik, Paul Richardson 2010 Kennesaw State University

The Impact Of Shipping Charges In Online Auctions: Evidence From Electronics Auctions On Ebay, Mikhail Melnik, Paul Richardson

Mikhail I. Melnik

In October 2008, eBay launched a major campaign aimed at reducing the shipping costs charged by sellers on its Web site. This new policy was a major reversal of the company’s longstanding commitment to allow sellers to set shipping costs, which had been its policy since its founding in September 1995. From an economic perspective, this policy shift is questionable. The eBay marketplace is highly competitive with numerous sellers competing against one another. This competition should drive shipping costs down to their marginal cost levels. The revenue equivalence theorem also suggests that consumers will minimize total costs of purchase ...


An Exploratory Analysis Of Determinants And Effectiveness Of Advertising On Ebay, Mikhail Melnik, Paul Richardson 2010 Kennesaw State University

An Exploratory Analysis Of Determinants And Effectiveness Of Advertising On Ebay, Mikhail Melnik, Paul Richardson

Mikhail I. Melnik

This study was an exploratory analysis of determinants and effectiveness of advertising on eBay. This study employed principles of signaling theory to examine and test the selection and impact of advertising tools on eBay. Consistent with this theory, we predicted that advertising vehicles high in informational value would be used more extensively by sellers. We also predicted investments in informational advertising would be especially preferred by sellers who enjoy high seller ratings because such sellers can make more credible statements. Informational advertising was also expected to increase with the level of price variation and competitive intensity in the market. We ...

Standing At A Crossroads: The Building Trades In The Twenty-First Century, Mark Erlich, Jeffrey Grabelsky 2010 New England Regional Council of Carpenters

Standing At A Crossroads: The Building Trades In The Twenty-First Century, Mark Erlich, Jeffrey Grabelsky

Jeffrey Grabelsky

American building trades unions have historically played a critical and stabilizing role in the nation’s construction industry, establishing uniform standards and leveling the competitive playing field. Union members have enjoyed better than average wages and benefits, excellent training opportunities, and decent jobsite conditions. But in the last thirty years the industry has undergone a dramatic transformation. This article describes the decline in union density, the drop in construction wages, the growth of anti-union forces, the changes in labor force demographics, the shift toward construction management, and the emergence of an underground economy. It also analyzes how building trades unions ...


Healthcare Performance Improvement And High Reliability: A Best Practice Methodology, Randle D. Raggio, Kerry Johnson, Carole Stockmeier, Clarence S. Thomas Jr. 2010 University of Richmond

Healthcare Performance Improvement And High Reliability: A Best Practice Methodology, Randle D. Raggio, Kerry Johnson, Carole Stockmeier, Clarence S. Thomas Jr.

Marketing Faculty Publications

Healthcare Performance Improvement (HPI) improves reliability in healthcare by helping organizations achieve and sustain high performance outcomes in safety, quality, and satisfaction. Safety is the core value of the healthcare organization. Yet safety – protection from harm – doesn’t just happen. HPI provides a method for reducing the Serious Safety Event Rate through translating safety from a core value to specific behavior expectations of leaders, staff, and physicians. The HPI method and techniques are based on the best practices of high-reliability organizations (such as nuclear power and aviation) that get it right in safety. While healthcare has focused on traditional process ...

Employees In Outplacement Services, Do They Really Get The Help They Need?, Lynn Gribble, Peter Miller 2010 Southern Cross University

Employees In Outplacement Services, Do They Really Get The Help They Need?, Lynn Gribble, Peter Miller

Peter Miller

Outplacement is often provided by organisations to people when they are retrenched, but little is understood about the processes of outplacement, or how 'retrenchees' experience it. Further, the experiences of those who are retrenched are often not researched, as they no longer belong to the organisation that pays for the outplacement and the outplacement agencies' focus is to assist them to find new employment. This paper investigates retrenchees' experiences with outplacement and finds the focus of the experience is on finding new work, and that their experiences are not always positive. While they are offered services other than job-seeking skills ...

Training In Thai Smes, Kitiya Thassanabanjong, Peter Miller, Teresa Marchant

Peter Miller

Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to profile Thai small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and fill a research gap about their investment in training and approaches to training. Design/method/approach – The paper uses a quantitative, descriptive design with a drop-off survey among 438 SMEs in Thailand. Findings – The study reveals a relatively young, highly-educated cohort of SME owner/managers, with greater business longevity than other countries. They do not invest a great deal of time or money in training and prefer informal, unstructured on-the-job (OTJ) training. Most SMEs train a few or none of their members for two hours ...
