Economic And Monetary Union In Europe, Charalambos K. Demetriou Dec 1994

Economic And Monetary Union In Europe, Charalambos K. Demetriou

Theses

The plans for Economic and Monetary Union in Europe became difficult to achieve during the period 1992-1993. The convergence criteria set up in the Maastricht Treaty block the road towards unification. It is very complex to expect twelve governments with different shades of political colour and twelve states with different economic interests to compromise in such criteria (as inflation, government borrowing, exchange rate stability and interest rates) and eventually, speak with one voice at the end of this decade.

This current research provides significant modifications in The Maastricht Treaty , policy making, objectives, even changes in political behavior for better coordination ...

By Monday everyone was suffering from football burnout what with the College games on Saturday, and the double network double headers on Sunday. It just wouldn't work.

Airbus A320/321 Quick Change Market Analysis - A Case Study, Till Christian Mommsen

Theses - Daytona Beach

The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate and compare the Boeing B737 QC to the Airbus A320/321 QC aircraft, and to determine their relative market within a sample airline. The technical design of the two Airbus aircraft in a mixed QC operation were considered with respect to the requirements of a particular airline. Direct operating costs and payload range data for all three aircraft were calculated.

To evaluate the competitiveness of the A320/321 QC under actual conditions, a linear programming fleet planning model was developed that considers more than the direct operating costs of a particular aircraft ...

Portfolio Allocations To Real Estate: Another Story, John B. Corgel, Jan A. Deroos Dec 1994

Portfolio Allocations To Real Estate: Another Story, John B. Corgel, Jan A. Deroos

Working Papers

Almost 25 years ago Friedman (1970) demonstrated that unsecuritized real estate, because of its relatively high risk-adjusted return and low correlations with stocks and bonds, receives substantial allocations in efficient, mixed-asset portfolios. Fisher and Sirmans (1994) argue that these attractive features of real estate still exist today. In recent empirical work by Mei and Lee (1994), the presence of a unique real estate factor is detected in securitized and unsecuritized real estate returns that cannot be captured by investing in other assets.


Creating Vertical Strategic Alliances: Theory And Cases From Canada's Agri-Food Sector, Erna Van Duren, Wayne H. Howard, Helen Mckay Dec 1994

Creating Vertical Strategic Alliances: Theory And Cases From Canada's Agri-Food Sector, Erna Van Duren, Wayne H. Howard, Helen Mckay

Agribusiness

Participants in Canada's agri0food sector have been averse to vertical collaboration for too long. The sector's history of producer marketing boards that were concerned with obtaining bargaining power to redress the market power of buyers has created attitudes the market power of buyers has created attitudes towards buyers and sellers that increase the risk that agri-food organizations will underestimate the advantages of vertical strategic alliances and overestimate the difficulty of building such relationships. However, in spite of the prevailing attitude among participants in Canada's agri-food sector, many organizations have nurtured vertical alliances. This paper develops a framework ...

Buying High And Selling Low In The Lodging-Property Market, John B. Corgel, Jan A. Deroos Dec 1994

Buying High And Selling Low In The Lodging-Property Market, John B. Corgel, Jan A. Deroos

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In this article we explore the idea that the transaction price may be different for a given lodging property in the case of one buyer and seller pair relative to another. The findings reported here are from a statistical exploration that is made possible by a large database of lodging-property transactions that occurred throughout the United States during the late 1980s and early 1990s. We begin with a discussion of previous research on the influence of buyers and sellers on property prices, then we present the findings from our study and their implications.

A Unified Model Of Investment Under Uncertainty, Andrew B. Abel, Janice C. Eberly Dec 1994

A Unified Model Of Investment Under Uncertainty, Andrew B. Abel, Janice C. Eberly

Finance Papers

This paper extends the theory of investment under uncertainty to incorporate fixed costs of investment, a wedge between the purchase price and sale price of capital, and potential irreversibility of investment. In this extended framework, investment is a non-decreasing function of q, the shadow price of installed capital. There are potentially three investment regimes, which depend on the value of q relative to two critical values. For values of q above the upper critical value, investment is positive and is an increasing function of q, as is standard in the theory branch of the adjustment cost literature. For intermediate values ...


Input Demand Under Yield And Revenue Insurance, Bruce A. Babcock, David A. Hennessy Dec 1994

Input Demand Under Yield And Revenue Insurance, Bruce A. Babcock, David A. Hennessy

CARD Working Papers

The question of how insurance programs affect agricultural input use is commanding increasing attention. Previous studies disagree on the likely effects of insurance on fertilizer application rates. Whether insurance is a complement or a substitute for fertilizer depends, in part, on whether the probability of low yields is positively or negatively affected by increased fertilizer rates. This study uses field-level data measuring the response of corn yields to nitrogen fertilizer to determine if the technical relationship between yield and nitrogen fertilizer supports the hypothesis that crop insurance or revenue insurance could induce increased application rates. Our results indicate no support ...
