What Matters Most To Your Guests: An Exploratory Study Of Online Reviews, Jie J. Zhang, Rohit Verma 2017 Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria

What Matters Most To Your Guests: An Exploratory Study Of Online Reviews, Jie J. Zhang, Rohit Verma

Center for Hospitality Research Publications

An examination of over 95,000 reviews and ratings for 99 independent, high-end hotels and resorts highlights the importance of the hotel industry’s core product, namely, consistently excellent service supporting a comfortable, well-appointed room. Based on reviews and ratings posted on TripAdvisor, Expedia, and Booking.com, the analysis found that properties with the most consistent service also had the highest ratings, while hotels with inconsistent scores also had relatively low ratings. Quantitative analysis revealed that service and rooms were overwhelmingly the most important aspects of these high-end properties, while facilities, location, and amenities moved the meter far less. A ...


Be Wary When Giving Investment Advice To Clients, Jamie Patrick Hopkins 2017 The American College of Financial Services

Be Wary When Giving Investment Advice To Clients, Jamie Patrick Hopkins

Faculty Publications

In April 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized its long-awaited conflict of interest rule and related prohibited transaction exemptions, expanding the definition of "fiduciary advice" under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and The Internal Revenue Code. While the new rules were primarily developed in an attempt to further regulate the advice provided by professionals in the financial services industry with respect to individual retirement accounts, the newly expanded definition of "investment advice" will inevitably cover advice commonly provided by estate planners.


Value Added As The Tax Base For Enterprise Income, Nicos ZAFIRIS 2017 Groupe INSEEC, London, UK

Value Added As The Tax Base For Enterprise Income, Nicos Zafiris

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

The paper addresses the long standing asymmetry in the tax treatment of debt and equity costs through a direct comparison of two hypothetical regimes based exclusively on income taxation, broadly defined, and value added taxation. The model presented widens existing debate to encompass the choice between entrepreneurial and contractual use of inputs generally and including labour, as well as capital. Using representative functional forms and numerical illustrations the analysis explores the effect of the tax regimes on firm decisions concerning input selection, output level and vertical integration. The greater neutrality of value added taxation is shown to produce gains in ...


Private Equity In Family Firms: Drivers Of The Willingness To Cede Control, Marisa Henn, Prof. Dr. Eva Lutz 2017 Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf

Private Equity In Family Firms: Drivers Of The Willingness To Cede Control, Marisa Henn, Prof. Dr. Eva Lutz

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

Our aim is to empirically examine how reasons for using private equity (PE) and prior experience with PE affect the willingness of privately held firms to cede company control. Based on a questionnaire entailing 75 privately held firms backed by PE, we show that family firms cede less control than non-family firms when entering a PE transaction. However, if firms seek funds due to challenges related to ownership changes, the difference between family firms and non-family firms decreases. Moreover, we find that family firms sell more company shares if they are run by a PE-experienced manager.


The Empty Idea Of “Equality Of Creditors”, David A. Skeel Jr. 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

The Empty Idea Of “Equality Of Creditors”, David A. Skeel Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

For two hundred years, the equality of creditors norm—the idea that similarly situated creditors should be treated similarly—has been widely viewed as the most important principle in American bankruptcy law, rivaled only by our commitment to a fresh start for honest but unfortunate debtors. I argue in this Article that the accolades are misplaced. Although the equality norm once was a rough proxy for legitimate concerns, such as curbing self-dealing, it no longer plays this role. Nor does it serve any other beneficial purpose.

Part I of this Article traces the historical emergence and evolution of the equality ...

Coordinating Information And Controlling Costs, Gordon S. Potter 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Coordinating Information And Controlling Costs, Gordon S. Potter

Gordon Potter

[Excerpt] I want to cover two essential and related topics in this chapter: determining the extent of decision rights you grant to your employees, and the management reports you provide to these employees to motivate them to effectively utilize resources. I recognize that if you are a sole practitioner, you may handle these all on your own. But if you hire people to manage your property, you should consider the points I discuss here.

Accounting Earnings Announcements, Institutional Investor Concentration, And Common Stock Returns, Gordon S. Potter 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Accounting Earnings Announcements, Institutional Investor Concentration, And Common Stock Returns, Gordon S. Potter

Gordon Potter

[Excerpt] This study examines the relation between the level of institutional investor ownership and the magnitude of security price variability at quarterly earnings announcement dates. Prior research consistently documents a negative association between firm size and announcement-date return variability. One explanation for this finding is that as more timely, alternative information becomes available on large firms prior to an announcement date, their security prices become informative, thereby reducing the information content of the earnings announcement. Large firms are closely followed by institutional investors. These investors dedicate substantial resources to information search. Therefore, the link between size and information production may ...


Returns To Tilapia Fish Farming In Ghana – Implications For Tilapia Pooled Investment Vehicles, Kwami Adanu, Mawufemor Adanu 2017 GIMPA Business School, Ghana

Returns To Tilapia Fish Farming In Ghana – Implications For Tilapia Pooled Investment Vehicles, Kwami Adanu, Mawufemor Adanu

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

In Ghana, the private sector’s response to financing constraints associated with aquaculture investment has been to employ Pooled Investment Vehicles (PIVs). Unfortunately, several of these PIVs faced insolvency with huge losses to investors as returns promised investors turn out to be unrealizable. The premise of this study is that such insolvency problems occur mainly because of the lack of reliable data on likely returns and risk associated with Tilapia farm investments. This study improves on the “single value” profitability estimates of previous studies by performing Value at Risk (VaR) analyses on estimated farm-level returns, and 5,000 Monte Carlo ...

Employee Internet Privacy: A Proposed Act That Balances Legitimate Employer Rights And Employee Privacy, Susan Park 2017 Boise State University

Employee Internet Privacy: A Proposed Act That Balances Legitimate Employer Rights And Employee Privacy, Susan Park

Susan Park

When Justin Basset interviewed for a job in New York City in 2012, he expected to respond to questions one is typically asked in a job interview. However, his interview took a modern technological twist when the interviewer opened her computer and attempted to look at Mr. Basset’s Facebook profile on her computer. Unable to see the details of his profile because he had taken advantage of Facebook’s privacy options to limit public viewing, she asked for his login information to access his account. He declined and withdrew his application.1 In 2010, Robert Collins, a Maryland Department ...

Digital Self-Ownership: A Publicity-Rights Framework For Determining Employee Social Media Rights, Susan Park, Patricia Sánchez Abril

Susan Park

Imagine an upandcoming company hires you as one of its first employees. Passionate about your employer, you put in long hours doing everything from marketing to accounting to event planning. You are also proud of your employer's product, so you begin to publicize it to your friends through your social network accounts. (In fact, the company's founder is also one of your Facebook friends.) You tell your friends about the product launch, invite them to marketing events, and eventually blog about your industry, amassing a significant social media following while creating buzz about your employer. But one day ...

Risk Appetites And Empirical Survival Pattern Of Small And Medium Enterprises In Nigeria, Joshua S. Adeyele Dr., Osazee G. Omorokunwa Dr.

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

ABSTRACT

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are vital to economic growth and development of a nation. However, many of them fail in the first five years of incorporation due to their exposures to risk financing and strategies employed to meet customers’ need during business shutdown. Hence, this study is designed to verify how SMEs’ risk financing affect their continuity, and to model their survival patterns in context of risk financing and risk management approach employed by the operators. Two hundred and nine copies of valid questionnaire distributed to the respondents were filled and returned. Cramer’s V and multiple regressions ...


Risk Management In The Venture Capital Industry: Managing Risk In Portfolio Companies, Dorian Proksch, Wiebke Stranz, Andreas Pinkwart, Michael Schefczyk 2017 HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management

Risk Management In The Venture Capital Industry: Managing Risk In Portfolio Companies, Dorian Proksch, Wiebke Stranz, Andreas Pinkwart, Michael Schefczyk

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

Managing risk is one of the main activities of venture capital companies. Despite the fact that this topic is of high practical relevance, only little research was published on risk management performed by venture capital companies in their ventures. Hence, we conducted a structured literature review which was the basis for developing five hypotheses concerning measures to decrease failure risk in venture capital-backed ventures. We tested these hypotheses with an empirical data set of 93 venture capital-backed ventures in Germany using original deal data from nine different venture capital funds using a structural equation model. We showed that the experience ...


Capital Markets Financing For Agricultural Business Development In Tanzania; A Case Of Cocoa Farming In Kyela And Rungwe Districts, Godfrey Frank Molela 2017 The University of Dodoma

Capital Markets Financing For Agricultural Business Development In Tanzania; A Case Of Cocoa Farming In Kyela And Rungwe Districts, Godfrey Frank Molela

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

This study tries to explore the financing opportunity for smallholder cocoa farmers available at capital markets through enterprise growth market (EGM) financing window. The research findings from 122 cocoa farmers revealed that, in average a single cocoa farmer needed Tshs. 551,808.12 per acre as capital investment in a given season. At the time of data collection the cocoa prices at London and New York futures markets were Tshs. 6,266.75/Kg and Tshs. 6,148.62/Kg respectively at prevailed rates which were far above the production cost. In this case the envisaged gross margin was sufficient ...


Information Asymmetry And Adverse Wealth Effects Of Crowdfunding, Fathali Firoozi, Abol Jalilvand, Donald Lien 2017 University of Texas at San Antonio

Information Asymmetry And Adverse Wealth Effects Of Crowdfunding, Fathali Firoozi, Abol Jalilvand, Donald Lien

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act of 2012 in the U.S. expanded the capital markets so that entrepreneurs can appeal directly to non-traditional small crowd investors for investment funds. The final rules and forms of the JOBS Act became effective in May 16, 2016. Existing literature is thus relatively small but contains ample praises for expected positive consequences of the new crowdfunding laws for the capital markets and for the crowd in general but has only limited analysis on the prospect of adverse wealth effects of crowdfunding for the crowd investors. A limited number of existing studies have ...


The Power Of A Presumption: California As A Laboratory For Unauthorized Immigrant Workers’ Rights, Kati L. Griffith 2017 Cornell University

The Power Of A Presumption: California As A Laboratory For Unauthorized Immigrant Workers’ Rights, Kati L. Griffith

Kati Griffith

In recent years, California has served as the primary laboratory for policy experimentation related to unauthorized immigrant workers’ rights. No other state, to date, has advanced comparable policy initiatives that preserve state-provided workers’ rights regardless of immigration status. Through close examination of two open Supremacy Clause questions under California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Act, the article illustrates that states can, as a constitutional matter, and should, as a policy matter, serve as laboratories for unauthorized immigrant worker rights. Exploring the outer boundaries of state action in this area is particularly compelling given the significant labor force participation of unauthorized immigrants ...
