Questions And Research Opportunities In Online Education, Jason Caudill Dec 2027

Questions And Research Opportunities In Online Education, Jason Caudill

Jason Caudill

This colloquium piece is intended to provoke thoughts and questions about research into the influence of corporatisation and marketisation in the area of online education. The topics related to these issues include the rise of for-profit online education companies, the mergers of traditional with for-profit institutions and the changing demographics of the college student. An assertion is made that there are many future research opportunities in the field of online education directly related to corporatisation and related issues. With the international growth of online education, very unique things are being seen. Specifically, education is no longer strictly in the domain ...

Paper Dragon Thieves, J.S. Nelson Dec 2016

Paper Dragon Thieves, J.S. Nelson

J.S. Nelson

Developments in the law are making the corporate form more opaque and allowing the agents who animate it to escape individual accountability for their actions. The law now provides protection for agents to engage in widespread frauds that inflict massive harm on the public. This article challenges the academic orthodoxy that shareholder and director liability are enough to control agent behavior by developing a paper dragon analogy to focus on the importance of agents in corporate animation. Lack of agent accountability encourages the patterns of fraud that caused the financial crisis in which forty-five percent of the world’s wealth ...


Conflict Between Controlling Family Owners And Minority Shareholders: Much Ado About Nothing, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof, Marianna Makri, Pascual Berrone Nov 2016

Conflict Between Controlling Family Owners And Minority Shareholders: Much Ado About Nothing, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof, Marianna Makri, Pascual Berrone

Geoffrey P Martin

We examine the unique nature of conflict between controlling family owners and minority shareholders (principal-principal conflict) in publicly traded family controlled firms through examining shareholder proposals. Implicit in prior governance and family business research has been that non-family shareholders are likely to be in conflict with the dominant family owners. In general, we find that much of this fear may be unwarranted except under specific circumstances. Our findings elucidate sources of heterogeneity in family firm principal-principal conflict and add greater nuance to our understanding of this type of agency problem within family firms.

Amp Bridging Finance And Behavioral Scholarship On Agent Risk Sharing And Risk Taking, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof, Robert M. Wiseman Nov 2016

Amp Bridging Finance And Behavioral Scholarship On Agent Risk Sharing And Risk Taking, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof, Robert M. Wiseman

Geoffrey P Martin

A large volume of research has examined agent risk taking and the contracting problem of risk sharing – the sharing of performance risk across agent and principal – to advance our knowledge of mechanisms that can align the assumed divergent interests and risk preferences of the managerial-agent and shareholder-principal. This research has been undertaken in two research streams that appear to have operated in silos, utilizing different theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches: financial economics and behavioral science. We review the theoretical paradigms and empirical findings deriving from both fields in order to identify opportunities for cross-fertilization and to advance future research in ...

Public Accounting And The Myth Of The Public Interest.Pdf, Wm. Dennis Huber Aug 2016

Public Accounting And The Myth Of The Public Interest.Pdf, Wm. Dennis Huber

Wm. Dennis Huber

For decades it has been drummed into the conscience, the consciousness, and the subconscious of accounting students, researchers, and practitioners alike that the public interest is the sine qua non of the public accounting profession. Accounting researchers have attempted to explore the multi-faceted nature of what is referred to as the public interest based on the assumption that the public interest actually exists in the public accounting profession (including professional accounting organizations, government and quasi-government regulatory agencies, and auditing and accounting standard setting bodies). This paper questions that assumption by conducting an exegesis of the texts of the legislative findings ...

Fashioning Desire At B. Altman & Co.: Ethics And Consumer Culture In Early Department Stores, Tessa Maffucci

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)

We live in an age of fast fashion. Clothing is produced in greater volumes than ever before and the lifecycle of each garment keeps getting shorter and shorter. Many items are manufactured to be worn only one time and then thrown away—as disposable as a cup of coffee. There is much to be learned about our current fashion ecosystem by looking into the past. Beyond the garments themselves we must understand the larger historical and sociological context in which these articles of clothing were produced. How does the shopping environment shape the buying habits and fashion trends of an ...


Essays On Foreign Firms Following Deregistration From U.S. Exchanges, Kathleen Michelle Bakarich Jun 2016

Essays On Foreign Firms Following Deregistration From U.S. Exchanges, Kathleen Michelle Bakarich

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)

In 2007 the SEC introduced Rule 12h-6, which significantly reduced the requirements for cross-listed firms to leave U.S. markets. While the benefits and costs of cross-listing in the U.S. have been widely analyzed in prior literature, questions as to the impact of deregistration on firms, investors, and other parties have been raised given the increase in foreign firms leaving the U.S. over the past decade. In addition, the growing global adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and worldwide regulatory developments over this time period have brought changes to the home markets to which deregistering firms return ...


Effects Of Serveware Materiality On Food Perceptions, Consumption, And Waste, Sara Williamson Jun 2016

Effects Of Serveware Materiality On Food Perceptions, Consumption, And Waste, Sara Williamson

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)

Three lab studies and three field studies indicate that food waste and consumption is influenced by serveware disposability. Studies indicate that consumers waste more food when eating with disposable plates and consume more food when eating with permanent plates. The effect persists whether participants choose their own type and quantity of food or are given the same amount of food, whether they are responsible for plate disposal or not, and whether the serveware is touched/held or not. Process level support is provided via an IAT test to explain this effect as a perceptual readiness to dispose of food when ...


Cool: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything [Table Of Contents], Salvatore Basile Jun 2016

Cool: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything [Table Of Contents], Salvatore Basile

History

It’s a contraption that makes the lists of “Greatest Inventions Ever”; at the same time, it’s accused of causing global disaster. It has changed everything from architecture to people’s food habits to their voting patterns, to even the way big business washes its windows. It has saved countless lives . . . while causing countless deaths. Most of us are glad it’s there. But we don’t know how, or when, it got there.

It’s air conditioning.

For thousands of years, humankind attempted to do something about the slow torture of hot weather. Everything was tried: water power ...

Imports, Unionizationandracial Age Discrimination In The Us, Jacqueline Agesa, Richard U. Agesa May 2016

Imports, Unionizationandracial Age Discrimination In The Us, Jacqueline Agesa, Richard U. Agesa

Jacqueline Agesa

Past studies of the relationship between competition and racial wages find that domestic competition reduces racial wage discrimination of nonunion workers. This article examines the effects of foreign competition on racial wages of union and nonunion workers utilizing an empirical model which allows for cluster-adjusted SEs by industry. Such a procedure allows independence of observations across industries but not within industries, thereby not overstating the significance of industry invariant controls. In this analysis, clustered SEs prevent the overstatement of the significance of imports as a means to reduce earnings discrimination. We find evidence of a wage premium for nonunion white ...
