National Culture Dimensions As Predictors Of Innovation, Creativity, And Entrepreneurship, Louis F. Jourdan Jr., Michael Smith

Journal of Global Business Insights

The purposes of this study were twofold. The first was to encourage other investigators to examine more closely three indices related to economic growth, specifically innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity. The second was to encourage further investigation of Hofstede’s national culture as explanatory variables. This investigation addressed this research gap by examining the relationships among indices of nations’ creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation, and their relationships with Hofstede’s (2015) national culture dimensions. No previous research was identified which examined countries’ creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation in the same study. The relationships among four measures associated with economic development—the Global Innovation ...

The Politics Of Bank Opacity, Heng YUE, Liandong ZHANG, Qinlin ZHONG 2021 Singapore Management University

The Politics Of Bank Opacity, Heng Yue, Liandong Zhang, Qinlin Zhong

Research Collection School Of Accountancy

The distribution of power in the political system shapes the financial reporting opacity of banks. Specifically, banks located in states with senators on the Senate Banking Committee (BC senators) have greater abnormal loan loss provisions than banks in other states. The result is stronger for larger banks and banks with higher risk. In addition, BC senators have a negative effect on the likelihood of banks in their home states receiving enforcement actions, and, more importantly, this effect is stronger for more opaque banks. These findings suggest that politicians, regulators, and banks use opaque financial reporting to facilitate regulatory forbearance. Moreover ...

Tapping Into Food Industry: A Comparative Dual-Model Study Of Religion And Culture On Food Products’ Purchase Intention, Sumera Syed, Fauziah S. Ahmad, Syed R. H. Shah

Journal of Mediterranean Tourism Research

Due to increased trend of globalization and immigration to advanced countries during the past decade, Halal food consumers are being observed not only in Islamic countries but also in Western European countries. Moreover, the concepts of hygiene, quality and cleanliness, being often related to Halal food, make it equally favorable for consumption to non-Muslims. However, this vast area of Halal food sector still needs further exploration. Though recent studies have, to some extent, tried to explore the impact of religiosity on Halal food purchase intention, but still the impact of religion on Halal food purchase intention remains unexplored. Moreover, almost ...

Competing Through Coopetition: A Strategy For Success In Hotel Marketing Consortia, Sofia Almeida, Ana Cláudia Campos, Carlos Costa, José Manuel Simões

Journal of Mediterranean Tourism Research

Coopetition is a strategy for a company to achieve a competitive advantage in the market environment. However, little is known about how coopetition works in the hotel sector and which organizational departments perform better in terms of coopetitive behaviour. In this research, coopetition is analysed in the context of international hotel marketing consortia (HMC) operating in Portugal. Exploratory interviews and a survey were conducted to consortia members to analyze managers’ perceptions on coopetitive behaviour and the organizational departments engaged in coopetition. The results show that there is higher cooperation than competition in the marketing and research & investigation departments. The research findings support consortia managers to make an informed decision to augment or reduce coopetition inside and outside companies based on two dimensions: internal and external. Internally by enhancing cooperation and reducing competition behaviour according to relationships observed between members; externally, by formulating strategies ...
