Fdi And Manufacturing Industry In Asia, Luyi JIN 2017 Lingnan University

Fdi And Manufacturing Industry In Asia, Luyi Jin

Lingnan Journal of Banking, Finance and Economics

The study finds that China’s manufacturing still maintained a growth level from 2003 to 2013. However, the growth has been declining. The rapid development of ASEAN economies led to the rise of the emerging manufacturing countries which have slowly adjusted and found their own advantages in challenging China.

The main conclusions of this paper are twofold. First, China will soon lose her low labor cost competitive advantage and needs to look for new strategy or industrial upgrades. Second, the current pattern of international division of labor will last for a fairly long period that developing countries will continue to ...


An Empirical Analysis Of The Phillips Curve : A Time Series Exploration Of Hong Kong, Dong WANG 2017 Lingnan University

An Empirical Analysis Of The Phillips Curve : A Time Series Exploration Of Hong Kong, Dong Wang

Lingnan Journal of Banking, Finance and Economics

This paper examines the stationarity and cointegration of inflation and unemployment variables of Hong Kong in a period prior to and after the return of Hong Kong’s sovereignty to China on July 1, 1997. The paper separately introduces two ARDL and error correlation models for the long-run and short-run dynamics relationships between inflation and unemployment variables for these two periods after an identification of cointegration. The key findings of this paper include the negative relationship observed between inflation and unemployment in Hong Kong during this time period. Moreover, prior inflation has a significantly negative effect on the current inflation ...


Portfolio Recallocation And Exchange Rate Dynamics, King Chun WONG 2017 Lingnan University

Portfolio Recallocation And Exchange Rate Dynamics, King Chun Wong

Lingnan Journal of Banking, Finance and Economics

This empirical paper aims to review a previous literature entitles “Portfolio Reallocation and Exchange Rate Dynamics”. The literature stated that including financial market structure can provide a micro-foundation to complement other macro-based models for exchange rate dynamics which typically are meaningful for the medium and long terms but not satisfactory for the short run. The model in the literature offers another way to look at exchange rate dynamics that is significant in the short run and more practical in nature. Undoubtedly, many investors in the financial market, such as traders, dealers, fund managers, and speculators who adjust their portfolio components ...


How Do Cdos And Cdss Influence The Crisis Of 2008, Martin BUFFET 2017 Lingnan University

How Do Cdos And Cdss Influence The Crisis Of 2008, Martin Buffet

Lingnan Journal of Banking, Finance and Economics

Everybody has heard about the “subprime” crisis but do we really know how it occurred and why this phenomenon had such an impact on our economies. One aspect of the answer to this question lies in the trade of credit default swaps (CDSs). These financial products led to less transparency in the markets and to a very collectively vulnerable financial system. This created a vicious circle that had not been anticipated by our financial regulators. In this paper, we will discuss how it occurred and what could have been done to avoid, or at lease reduce, the impact of these ...


The Study Of Enhanced Performance Measurement Of Mutual Funds In Asia Pacific Market, Juzhen LI 2017 Lingnan University

The Study Of Enhanced Performance Measurement Of Mutual Funds In Asia Pacific Market, Juzhen Li

Lingnan Journal of Banking, Finance and Economics

This empirical paper will compare the result by running Costa and Jakob's models (2010) using mutual funds in Asia Pacific market excluding Japan. Costa and Jakob's paper, Enhanced Performance Measurement of Mutual Funds: Running the Benchmark Index through the Hurdles, is highly related to this empirical paper and is generally based on Carhart's four-factor model (Carhart, 1997) with US securities market data. Apart from the comparison between Asia Pacific market excluding Japan and US market, further research on auxiliary and heteroscedasticity will also be conducted.


Contemplating Mindfulness At Work: An Integrative Review, Christopher Lyddy, Darren J. Good, Theresa M. Glomb, Joyce E. Bono, Kirk W. Brown, Michelle K. Duffy, Ruth A. Baer, Judson A. Brewer, Sara W. Lazar 2017 Providence College

Contemplating Mindfulness At Work: An Integrative Review, Christopher Lyddy, Darren J. Good, Theresa M. Glomb, Joyce E. Bono, Kirk W. Brown, Michelle K. Duffy, Ruth A. Baer, Judson A. Brewer, Sara W. Lazar

Christopher Lyddy

Mindfulness research activity is surging within organizational science. Emerging evidence across multiple fields suggests that mindfulness is fundamentally connected to many aspects of workplace functioning, but this knowledge base has not been systematically integrated to date. This review coalesces the burgeoning body of mindfulness scholarship into a framework to guide mainstream management research investigating a broad range of constructs. The framework identifies how mindfulness influences attention, with downstream effects on functional domains of cognition, emotion, behavior, and physiology. Ultimately, these domains impact key workplace outcomes, including performance, relationships, and well-being. Consideration of the evidence on mindfulness at work stimulates important ...

The New Bond Workouts, William W. Bratton, Adam J. Levitin 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

The New Bond Workouts, William W. Bratton, Adam J. Levitin

Faculty Scholarship

Bond workouts are a famously dysfunctional method of debt restructuring, ridden with opportunistic and coercive behavior by bondholders and bond issuers. Yet since 2008 bond workouts have quietly started to work. A cognizable portion of the restructuring market has shifted from bankruptcy court to out-of-court workouts by way of exchange offers made only to large institutional investors. The new workouts feature a battery of strong-arm tactics by bond issuers, and aggrieved bondholders have complained in court. The result has been a new, broad reading of the primary law governing workouts, section 316(b) of the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 ...


Incomplete Takings, Abraham Bell, Gideon Parchomovsky 2017 University of San Diego

Incomplete Takings, Abraham Bell, Gideon Parchomovsky

Faculty Scholarship

Incomplete takings are vital and extremely common. Yet, they present unique challenges that cannot be resolved by standard rules of eminent domain. In particular, incomplete, or partial, takings may result in the creation of suboptimal parcels, and even unusable and unmarketable ones. Additionally, partial takings create nettlesome assessment problems that do not arise when parcels are taken as a whole. Finally, incomplete takings engender opportunities for inefficient strategic behavior on the part of the government after the partial taking has been carried out. Current partial takings jurisprudence fails to resolve these problems, and, in some instances even exacerbates them.

Focus On Non-Functionals! The Effect Of Focussing On Non- Functional Requirements On The Maturity Of The Requirements Engineering Process, David Vermeulen, Mark de Weger, Pascal Ravesteyn 2017 Spir-IT

Focus On Non-Functionals! The Effect Of Focussing On Non- Functional Requirements On The Maturity Of The Requirements Engineering Process, David Vermeulen, Mark De Weger, Pascal Ravesteyn

Communications of the IIMA

When developing IT systems it is important to know the requirements of the system. Requirements can be classified into different categories. In this study we look at functional and non-functional requirements. Respectively these describe the behaviour of the system (functional requirements) and the criteria under which the system works (the non-functional requirements). Furthermore this paper contributes to the understanding of the relation between the focus on non-functional requirements and the maturity of the requirements engineering process. The research question this paper addresses is: "How does the focus on non-functional requirements influence the maturity of the requirements engineering process?” The method ...


Cultural Impacts On Cognitive Dissonance And Ewom/Enwom, Kungpo Tao, Yan Jin 2017 Elizabeth City State University

Cultural Impacts On Cognitive Dissonance And Ewom/Enwom, Kungpo Tao, Yan Jin

Communications of the IIMA

The purpose of this study is to contrast individualist culture (e.g., United States) with collectivist culture (e.g., China) in regards to the Internet-involved customer purchase process (IICPP), specifically the customer’s involvement before purchase, the cognitive dissonance after purchase and the post-purchase behavior in terms of the online world of mouth (eWOM) and online negative word of mouth (eNWOM). This study also explores the influences of culture on product attributes that are associated in IICPP. Based on the related literature, this study applies the existing concepts to the Internet context. The study adopts 40 cases of online customer ...


A Normative Model For Assessing Sme It Effectiveness, Michael Curry, Byron Marshall, Peter Kawalek 2017 Washington State University

A Normative Model For Assessing Sme It Effectiveness, Michael Curry, Byron Marshall, Peter Kawalek

Communications of the IIMA

Information technology (IT) is a key enabler of modern small businesses, yet fostering reliably effective IT systems remains a significant challenge. This paper presents a light weight IT effectiveness model for small businesses to assess their IT and formulate strategies for improvement. Employing an action research approach we investigate a mixed method analysis of 120 survey responses from small family businesses and user participation in 10 semi-structured interviews. We then conduct critical reflection to identify refinements which are validated using 72 survey responses from university students. The results present compelling evidence that employees’ normative patterns (norms) are a significant driver ...

An Integrated Perspective Of Multitasking And Multiple Team Membership, Shoshana Altschuller, Raquel Benbunan-Fich 2017 Iona College

An Integrated Perspective Of Multitasking And Multiple Team Membership, Shoshana Altschuller, Raquel Benbunan-Fich

Communications of the IIMA

Workers in today’s business environments are confronted with heavy workloads that reflect not only their regular job expectations but also their involvement in multiple teams at the same time. The majority of the current literature has studied these two topics (multitasking and multiple-team membership) independently. The goal of this paper is to integrate both conceptual outlooks by examining relevant works in both streams of research and merging them into an integrated framework. By analyzing new data collected from focus groups, and taking an individual worker’s perspective, the results of this study suggest that participating in multiple teams simultaneously ...
