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 ...

Identifying Key Factors Of Rail Transit Service Quality: An Empirical Analysis For Istanbul, Erkan Isikli, Nezir Aydin, Erkan Celik, Alev Taskin Gumus Mar 2017

Identifying Key Factors Of Rail Transit Service Quality: An Empirical Analysis For Istanbul, Erkan Isikli, Nezir Aydin, Erkan Celik, Alev Taskin Gumus

Journal of Public Transportation

Providing a high quality of service in public transportation is essential to reduce dissatisfactions stemming from traffic congestion and noise. Public transport providers need to find ways to dilute the effects of immoderate use of private cars in big cities while maintaining a sufficient level of customer satisfaction. This study aimed to identify the key service quality (SQ) factors that drive passenger satisfaction in Istanbul’s rail transit (RT) system using data obtained from an extensive survey conducted by the Istanbul Public Transportation Co. A total of 11,116 passengers who used rail transport from May 15–June 3, 2012 ...


Order Of Entry Into Foreign Countries By Us Multinationals Since 1965: Role Of Psychic Distance Over Time And Across Sectors, Suresh Singh Jan 2017

Order Of Entry Into Foreign Countries By Us Multinationals Since 1965: Role Of Psychic Distance Over Time And Across Sectors, Suresh Singh

Suresh Singh

Observations of internationalizing manufacturing firms, in the late seventies, revealed that the order in which firms enter foreign countries is influenced by psychic distance (perceived closeness based on factors such as culture, language and development level). Since then, the world has undergone rapid globalization and services have replaced manufacturing as the dominant sector of the world economy. To ascertain whether (a) psychic distance is still relevant and (b) industry sector impacts the relationship between psychic distance and order of entry, this paper analyzed the order of entry into foreign countries by US multinationals in manufacturing and services sectors since 1965 ...

Profile Of Corporate Social Media Consumer Segments, Beverly Wright, Aberdeen Leila Borders, Paul H. Schwager, S. Scott Nadler

Aberdeen L Borders

The trade and academic literature is replete with commentary about the need for companies to develop promotional strategies and to adopt media platforms that are more engaging and conversational with customers than the traditional top-down company directed one-way communication strategies of the past (Thomas, Peters, Howell and Robbins, 2012; Foster, West and Francescucci 2011; Deighton and Kornfeld, 2009). This viewpoint is supported by Christodoulides (2008) who reported that many customers view information about a company or brand that they obtained from blogs, social networking sites and the like as being more relevant, believable and important to them in their interactions ...

Various approaches such as improved tooling technology, the use of automated systems for lamination as well as outsourcing are examined to provide an overview of possible advancements ...


Fourth Quarter 2016: Hotels Are Getting Costlier To Finance, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr. Jan 2017

Fourth Quarter 2016: Hotels Are Getting Costlier To Finance, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr.

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

Our Standardized Unexpected Price (SUP) metric continued to show positive momentum in the price of large hotels with continued decline in the price of small hotels. Costlier financing for hotels is occurring due in part to lenders’ perceptions of the increasing relative riskiness of hotels compared to other commercial real estate. We expect higher hotel financing costs going forward. Our early warning indicators suggest that prices of large hotels and small hotels should rise during the first quarter of 2017. This is report number 21 of the index series.

Tourism Led Growth Hypothesis In India, Ramphul Ohlan Jan 2017

Tourism Led Growth Hypothesis In India, Ramphul Ohlan

Ramphul Ohlan

This study investigates relationship between tourism and economic growth in India by considering the relative
importance of financial development over the period of 1960–2014. The results of newly-developed
Bayer and Hanck combined test indicate that tourism, economic growth and financial development are
cointegrated. It is shown that the inbound tourism spurs economic growth in India both in long-run and
short-run. In addition, the analysis indicates the presence of a long-run one-way Granger-causation running
from tourism to economic growth. It is suggested that policies for attracting more international tourists
should be promoted.

When Rules Are Made To Be Broken: The Case Of Sexual Harassment Law, David S. Sherwyn, Nicholas F. Menillo, Zev J. Eigen Jan 2017

When Rules Are Made To Be Broken: The Case Of Sexual Harassment Law, David S. Sherwyn, Nicholas F. Menillo, Zev J. Eigen

Center for Hospitality Research Publications

Judicial holdings regarding sexual harassment actions have put judges who want to ensure what they view as a just outcome in the awkward position of having to choose between following precedent or “breaking the rules.” This article presents a theoretical assessment and empirical analysis of judicial rule-breaking with regard to two rules relating to sexual harassment. The first such rule, established in the Oncale decision, opened the door to the “equal-opportunity harasser” who treats everyone badly and thus escapes the prohibition on harassment “due to sex.” The other rule, set forth in the Ellerth and Faragher decisions, establishes a two-prong ...

Merge Ahead: Library-It Organizations In The Liberal Arts, Lisa A. Forrest, Niranjan Davray, Heather Woods, Dave Smallen

From curbing administrative costs to improving communication to supporting student and faculty success, merged institutions cite a variety of reasons for joining forces. How do successfully merged library and IT services work? What are the challenges and opportunities for those leading within these organizations? What lessons can stand alone organizations glean from these unions? Presenters from four liberal arts institutions--Hamilton, Kenyon, Trinity, and Wellesley Colleges--will share a variety of perspectives and advice for those contemplating a merger or just looking to improve Library-IT relationships.

Lead-Time Quotation When Customers Are Sensitive To Reputation, Susan A. Slotnick Jan 2017

Lead-Time Quotation When Customers Are Sensitive To Reputation, Susan A. Slotnick

Susan Slotnick

Firms consider a variety of factors when making lead-time promises, including current shop status and the size of the incoming order. The profit-maximising model presented in this paper is the first to include reputation effects explicitly in a lend-time optimisation model. Reputation is considered to be the lasting effect on the market of a firm's delivery performance over time, and so it affects the future as well as the current profits. The model is complicated, and a counter-example demonstrates that qualitative monotonicity results are not obtainable. A computational study explores the relationships between shop status, order size, reputation, market ...


Order Acceptance And Scheduling: A Taxonomy And Review, Susan A. Slotnick Jan 2017

Order Acceptance And Scheduling: A Taxonomy And Review, Susan A. Slotnick

Susan Slotnick

Over the past 20 years, the topic of order acceptance has attracted considerable attention from those who study scheduling and those who practice it. In a firm that strives to align its functions so that profit is maximized, the coordination of capacity with demand may require that business sometimes be turned away. In particular, there is a trade-off between the revenue brought in by a particular order, and all of its associated costs of processing. The present study focuses on the body of research that approaches this trade-off by considering two decisions: which orders to accept for processing, and how ...


Optimal And Heuristic Lead-Time Quotation For An Integrated Steel Mill With A Minimum Batch Size, Susan A. Slotnick Jan 2017

Optimal And Heuristic Lead-Time Quotation For An Integrated Steel Mill With A Minimum Batch Size, Susan A. Slotnick

Susan Slotnick

This paper presents a model of lead-time policies for a production system, such as an integrated steel mill, in which the bottleneck process requires a minimum batch size. An accurate understanding of internal lead-time quotations is necessary for making good customer delivery-date promises, which must take into account processing time, queueing time and time for arrival of the requisite volume of orders to complete the minimum batch size requirement. The problem is modeled as a stochastic dynamic program with a large state space. A computational study demonstrates that lead time for an arriving order should generally be a decreasing function ...
