Evaluating Buyer–Supplier Relationship–Performance Spirals: A Longitudinal Study, Chad Autry, Susan Golicic 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Evaluating Buyer–Supplier Relationship–Performance Spirals: A Longitudinal Study, Chad Autry, Susan Golicic

Chad W Autry

Named the Best Paper in Journal of Operations Management for 2010.

Interorganizational relationships and their impact on firm performance have been studied at length in various business literatures, with many studies predicting that in dyadic exchange contexts strong relationships should lead to better performance for both parties involved. However, some studies reverse this causal ordering, arguing that the performance gains attributed to prior relational activity predict the strength of the dyadic relationship in future time periods. While supported, both of these perspectives on relationship strength/performance dynamics are incomplete, as the research studies are only cross-sectional snapshots of the phenomenon ...

Financial Constraints, The Distribution Of Wealth And International Trade, Emmanuel Amissah, Spiros Bougheas, Rodney Falvey 2010 Bond University

Financial Constraints, The Distribution Of Wealth And International Trade, Emmanuel Amissah, Spiros Bougheas, Rodney Falvey

Rodney Falvey

Extract:

As the Heckscher-Ohlin-Mundell paradigm predicts, in a world where capital markets are perfect and production exhibits constant-returns to scale, while aggregate wealth endowments can be an important source of comparative advantage, their internal distribution does not matter for the patterns of international trade. This is because in the absence of financial frictions the only factor that determines the availability of external finance is a project's net present value. In real life financial markets are far from perfect. Informational asymmetries between lenders and borrowers, corporate governance quality shortcomings and non-negligible intermediation costs are only a sample of the types ...

The Little Clay Cart (Mrcchakatika): The Construction Of Gender And Emotion In Act V, “The Storm”, Mohan Limaye, Kim Price 2010 Boise State University

The Little Clay Cart (Mrcchakatika): The Construction Of Gender And Emotion In Act V, “The Storm”, Mohan Limaye, Kim Price

Mohan Limaye

In Act V of The Little Clay Cart, a Sanskrit play written in India about 1600 years ago, the playwright Shudraka constructs a poetic duet between Vasantasena, the heroine, and a Vita, her male companion, as they walk to the house of her lover Charudatta in a raging storm. Their poetic descriptions of the storm portray the differences in gender and emotion between these two characters. Vasantasena’s verses create an enriched gender-specific persona through the expression of her nuanced feelings for Charudatta and of the sentiment of love in separation. The Vita, on the other hand, describes the storm ...


Hicksian Income In The Conceptual Framework, Michael Bromwich, Richard Macve, Shyam Sunder 2010 London School of Economics

Hicksian Income In The Conceptual Framework, Michael Bromwich, Richard Macve, Shyam Sunder

Shyam Sunder

In seeking to replace accounting ‘conventions’ by ‘concepts’ in the pursuit of principles-based standards, the FASB/IASB joint project on the conceptual framework has grounded its approach on a well-known definition of ‘income’ by Hicks. We welcome the use of theories by accounting standard setters and practitioners, if theories are considered in their entirety. ‘Cherry-picking’ parts of a theory to serve the immediate aims of standard setters risks distortion. Misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the selected elements of a theory increase the distortion even more. We argue that the Boards have selectively picked from, misquoted, misunderstood, and misapplied Hicksian concepts of ...


An Experimental Analysis Of Compliance In Dynamic Emissions Markets, JOHN K. STRANLUND, James J. Murphy, John M. Spraggon 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

An Experimental Analysis Of Compliance In Dynamic Emissions Markets, John K. Stranlund, James J. Murphy, John M. Spraggon

John K. Stranlund

Two important design elements for emission trading programs are whether and to what extent firms are able to bank emissions permits, and how these programs are to be enforced. In this paper we present results from laboratory emissions markets designed to investigate enforcement and compliance when these markets allow permit banking. Banking is motivated by a decrease in the aggregate permit supply in the middle of multi-period trading sessions. Consistent with theoretical insights, our experiments suggest that high permit violation penalties have little deterrence value in dynamic emissions markets, and that the main challenge of enforcing these programs is to ...


The Emergence Of Social Science Research In Nanotechnology, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie, Alan L. Porter 2010 Georgia Institute of Technology

The Emergence Of Social Science Research In Nanotechnology, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie, Alan L. Porter

Philip Shapira

This article examines the development of social science literature focused on the emerging area of nanotechnology. It is guided by the exploratory proposition that early social science work on emerging technologies will draw on science and engineering literature on the technology in question to frame its investigative activities, but as the technologies and societal investments in them progress, social scientists will increasingly develop and draw on their own body of literature. To address this proposition the authors create a database of nanotechnology-social science literature by merging articles from the Web of Science’s Social Science Citation Index and Arts and ...


Redefining The Epistomology Of The Coporate / Not-For-Profit Engagement, David Cooke Dr 2010 Southern Cross University

Redefining The Epistomology Of The Coporate / Not-For-Profit Engagement, David Cooke Dr

David Cooke

An understanding of why corporations engage in corporate social investment and corporate philanthropy is vital if not-for-profit organisations are to engage effcetively in raising funds from this sector. This article indicates that their is a return on investment for companies who partner with the not-for-profit sector and approaches need to focus on this rather than an appeal to altruism.

Livestock And Laundry, Crops And Kids: A Woman’S Role In Agriculture, Jenni Peters

Cornbelt Cow-Calf Conference

I want to thank Byron Leu for asking me to speak today and I think Denise had something to do with this too. So thank you both. Byron called me back in October. I think all of you can remember, or maybe you don’t want to remember, what the weather was like then. It was raining and at home we were all trying to think of jobs to accomplish until the monsoon let up. Everyone was anxious to get the corn out of the field and let our cows have some good grazing on the stalks. Byron asked if ...

Executive Pay And Firm Performance: Methodological Considerations And Future Directions, Beth Florin, Kevin F. Hallock, Douglas Webber 2010 Pearl Meyer & Partners

Executive Pay And Firm Performance: Methodological Considerations And Future Directions, Beth Florin, Kevin F. Hallock, Douglas Webber

Compensation Research Initiative

This paper is an investigation of the pay-for-performance link in executive compensation. In particular we document main issues in the pay-performance debate and explain practical issues in setting pay as well as data issues including how pay is disclosed and how that has changed over time. We also provide a summary of the state of CEO pay levels and pay mix in 2009 using a sample of over 2,000 companies and describe main data sources for researchers. We also investigate what we believe to be at the root of fundamental confusion in the literature across disciplines – methodological issues. In ...


Climate Change And Real Estate: How Environmental Risks And Policies Impact Markets, Adele C. Morris 2010 Brookings Mountain West

Climate Change And Real Estate: How Environmental Risks And Policies Impact Markets, Adele C. Morris

Lectures/Events (BMW)

Climate change could worsen environmental conditions that affect real estate values, such as extreme weather events and coastal erosion. But policies to prevent climate change can also affect real estate values, for example through higher energy prices and land use regulation. This lecture will examine the linkages between the climate change risks, climate policy, and real estate markets. We will also discuss the likely regional economic effects of recent proposed climate legislation.

The Impact Of The Asian Economic Crisis In Thailand, Craig C. Julian 2010 University of the Sunshine Coast

The Impact Of The Asian Economic Crisis In Thailand, Craig C. Julian

Dr Craig C Julian

Traces the economic development of Thailand since 1945, referring to relevant research, and analyses the reasons why it was the first Southeast Asian country to collapse in the 1997 economic crisis: large current account deficits, excessive external debt, a collapse in the property sector, exchange rate mismanagement and political instability. Considers its future prospects and shows statistics on economic growth and inflation for the world as a whole and various countries and groups within it.
