The Interactive Effect Of Monitoring And Incentive Alignment On Agency Costs, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Robert M. Wiseman Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Dr Nov 2017

The Interactive Effect Of Monitoring And Incentive Alignment On Agency Costs, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Robert M. Wiseman Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Dr

Geoffrey P Martin


The effectiveness of monitoring and incentive alignment as mechanisms for controlling agency costs have been explored separately and in combination, with monitoring substituting for weaknesses in incentive alignment and vice versa; this equates to positive substitution when describing how monitoring and incentive alignment interact to influence shareholder agency costs. We draw upon behavioral agency theory and findings from finance research to offer further theoretical insight into how these mechanisms interact to influence agency costs. Our results suggest that CEO earnings management aimed at preserving their equity wealth (an incentive alignment mechanism) is accentuated by higher levels of concentrated institutional ownership ...

Solving The Problem Of Capital Loss Distribution Upon Dissolution Of A Service Partnership, Jeffrey John Miles Jul 2017

Solving The Problem Of Capital Loss Distribution Upon Dissolution Of A Service Partnership, Jeffrey John Miles

Jeffrey John Miles

This Comment offers a potential solution to the conflict between the common law tradition exemplified by Kovacik v. Reed and the Revised Uniform Partnership Act (“UPA (1997)”). The paradox arises at the dissolution of a partnership where one partner (the “capital partner”) has provided money to the venture and other partner (the “service partner”) has simply contributed his services, without drawing a salary. The partners have agreed to share future profits equally. Like many partners, they have not bargained at the outset over what will happen if their venture loses money. When the partnership does lose money, the capital partner ...


Targeted Advertising, Platform Competition And Privacy, Henk L.M. Kox, Bas Straathof, Gijsbert Zwart Jun 2017

Targeted Advertising, Platform Competition And Privacy, Henk L.M. Kox, Bas Straathof, Gijsbert Zwart

Henk LM Kox

Targeted advertising can benefit consumers through lower prices for access to websites. Yet, if consumers dislike that websites collect their personal information, their welfare may go down. We study competition for consumers between websites that can show targeted advertisements. We find that more targeting increases competition and reduces the websites’ profits, but yet in equilibrium websites choose maximum targeting as they cannot credibly commit to low targeting. A privacy protection policy can be beneficial for both consumers and websites. If consumers are heterogeneous in their concerns for privacy, a policy that allows choice between two levels of privacy will be ...

Caught In The Headlights: Revising The Road Kill Hypothesis Of Antebellum Illinois Bank Failures, Scott N. Clayman, Scott Deacle, Andrew J. Economopoulos May 2017

Caught In The Headlights: Revising The Road Kill Hypothesis Of Antebellum Illinois Bank Failures, Scott N. Clayman, Scott Deacle, Andrew J. Economopoulos

Business and Economics Faculty Publications

Illinois had a dismal free banking experience, with over 80% of its free banks failing by the start of the Civil War. Researchers agree that a dramatic change in bond prices was the catalyst, and some have shown that the riskiest banks, ex ante, were the most likely to fail. This study examines how Illinois free banks adjusted their portfolios in the face of increased political and financial risks prior to Abraham Lincoln’s election as president. Lincoln’s nomination in May 1860 and the Democratic Party schism in June 1860 raised the likelihood of secession and the potential for ...


The Design Of An Instrument To Assess Clinical Laboratories Efficacy Post Implementation Of The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, Harry Mcdonald Jr. May 2017

The Design Of An Instrument To Assess Clinical Laboratories Efficacy Post Implementation Of The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, Harry Mcdonald Jr.

Dissertations

The healthcare system in the United States has undergone substantial changes in support of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). On March 23, 2010, the implementation of the new healthcare law brought universal healthcare access to all Americans, while attempting to increase quality and decrease medical costs. The new law promotes more of a quality-focused, outcome-based model rather than a pay-for-fee service model; thus, moving the paradigm from infrequent to preemptive healthcare. The PPACA postulates as the only way to achieve cost savings while increasing quality and access. Never before has there been such an extensive change to ...

Osspal: Finding And Evaluating Open Source Software, Anthony Wasserman

Tony Wasserman

This paper describes the OSSpal project, which is aimed at helping companies, government agencies, and other organizations find high quality free and open source software (FOSS) that meets their needs. OSSpal is a successor to the Business Readiness Rating (BRR), combining quantitative and qualitative evaluation measures for software in various categories. Instead of a purely numeric calculated score OSSpal adds curation of high-quality FOSS projects and individual user reviews of these criteria. Unlike the BRR project, for which there was no automated support, OSSpal has an operational, publicly available website where users may search by project name or category, and ...


People, Planet, Profit: Benefit And B Certified Corporations - Comprehension And Outlook Of Business Students, Arlene J. Nicholas, Samuel Sacco Apr 2017

People, Planet, Profit: Benefit And B Certified Corporations - Comprehension And Outlook Of Business Students, Arlene J. Nicholas, Samuel Sacco

Faculty and Staff - Articles & Papers

This paper is an overview of the emergence of Benefit and Certified B Corporations that aim to realize a profit and make a positive impact on society as measured by some third party standard. In this way, these corporations differ in corporate purpose from traditional C corporations. Directors and managers are accountable for that defined public benefit. Considerations of sustainable business practices have existed in many industries for several years. However, the recent growth in legislation to create a legal framework for Benefit Corporations is newly emergent. An examination of recent literature explains the rise of these socially responsible organizations ...

Cultural Diversity In Student Ministry Leadership, Steven Zhou Mar 2017

Cultural Diversity In Student Ministry Leadership, Steven Zhou

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

In an attempt to contribute to how ministries and Christian academia is addressing issues of diversity, I am conducting a study to analyze correlations between ethnicity and styles/values of leadership. The goal is to uncover whether or not a particular ethnicity generally prefers one style of leadership over another. Past research on the subject has already seen that, in the business world, certain practices work better than others. For example, those from an Asian culture are more likely to prefer formality and authority as opposed to the collaborative and relationship-oriented style of leadership found in America. I will contribute ...


Total Hotel Revenue Management: A Strategic Profit Perspective, Breffni M. Noone, Cathy A. Enz, Jessie Glassmire Mar 2017

Total Hotel Revenue Management: A Strategic Profit Perspective, Breffni M. Noone, Cathy A. Enz, Jessie Glassmire

Center for Hospitality Research Publications

Hospitality firms are expanding traditional revenue management (RM) practice to focus on customer value and strategic profit management. Participants in series of semi-structured interviews suggested that revenue management is moving away from a sole focus on top-line rooms revenue toward a bottom-line orientation focused on the customer. Thus, RM will expand to multiple revenue sources and encompass a multi-channel demand management approach. The interviews with sixteen senior hotel leaders, RM vendors, and solution providers highlighted the importance of profit, rather than just revenue, given rising distribution and variable costs. Despite the attraction of other revenue and profit sources, such as ...

Status Spillovers, Brian P. Reschke, Pierre Azoulay, Toby E. Stuart Mar 2017

Status Spillovers, Brian P. Reschke, Pierre Azoulay, Toby E. Stuart

All Faculty Publications

When an actor experiences a sudden gain in status—for example, when a scientist wins a Nobel Prize, or a film director wins an Oscar—what does this increase do to the fates of that actor’s many ‘neighbors’? Do they bask in the reflected glory of the prize recipient, and therefore gain with her? Or, does competition for attention ensue, attenuating the recognition neighbors otherwise would have received? We investigate these questions in science. Using expert-assigned article keywords, we identify papers that are topically related to publications of future appointees to the prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). In ...


Higher Education Meets Business Intelligence, Kevin Javier Mar 2017

Higher Education Meets Business Intelligence, Kevin Javier

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (Computer Science)

Abstract

In an ever-changing market powered by user satisfaction and financial success, Higher Education institutions must focus on data analytics to improve student satisfaction and business processes. This project underlines the importance of using a powerful data analytics tool to accomplish these goals. Many Higher Education institutions already collect the necessary data in order to predict and determine key changes but still pull this information from multiple databases in individual reports without overlapping benefit or any level of efficiency. The previous systems increase the risk of user error and limit the ability for multiple departments to collaborate and gain insights ...
