Bowls Everywhere But None To Match The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1999

Bowls Everywhere But None To Match The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

I entered a state of deep depression recently when I learned that the folks at Poulan are no longer sponsoring the Independence Bowl. The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl is no more. The irritating, loud and stupid relative of all the bowl games is gone. The Poulan Weed Eater Bowl has whacked its last weed.


John Rocker's Si Interview, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1999

John Rocker's Si Interview, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

It wasn't all that long ago that John Rocker was complaining about being stereotyped by Met fans and New Yorkers. He said that New Yorkers seemed to think that everyone from Georgia had one tooth and married their cousin. The self-styled good old boy resented this sort of sweeping generalization about Georgians and Southerners.


Notre Dame On Probation: The Cost Of Selling Your Soul And The Ncaa As Judge, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1999

Notre Dame On Probation: The Cost Of Selling Your Soul And The Ncaa As Judge, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Can we say that the final blow to the concept of intercollegiate athletic integrity has now been delivered? With the announcement Friday that Notre Dame has been placed on two years probation and lost two football scholarships, seemingly the last bastion of intercollegiate athletics has been tarnished. A sense of shame walks the campus beneath the Golden Dome.

Fay Vincent, Pete Rose, And Reinstatement, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Pete Rose just won't go away. He just doesn't seem to understand, and probably never will. His ban from baseball was not about his popularity, whatever that might have been, or is. His ban from baseball is the result of the Commissioner of Baseball concluding that there was sufficient evidence that he had been gambling on baseball. He did not contest the finding, but then he also refuses to acknowledge the finding.

The Use Of Equity Grants To Manage Optimal Equity Incentive Levels, John E. Core, Wayne R. Guay Dec 1999

The Use Of Equity Grants To Manage Optimal Equity Incentive Levels, John E. Core, Wayne R. Guay

Accounting Papers

We predict and find that firms use annual grants of options and restricted stock to CEOs to manage the optimal level of equity incentives. We model optimal equity incentive levels for CEOs, and use the residuals from this model to measure deviations between CEOs’ holdings of equity incentives and optimal levels. We find that grants of new incentives from options and restricted stock are negatively related to these deviations. Overall, our evidence suggests that firms set optimal equity incentive levels and grant new equity incentives in a manner that is consistent with economic theory.

The Economics Of Yield-Driven Processes, Roger E. Bohn, Christian Terwiesch Dec 1999

The Economics Of Yield-Driven Processes, Roger E. Bohn, Christian Terwiesch

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

The economic performance of many modern production processes is substantially influenced by process yields. Their first effect is on product cost — in some cases, low-yields can cause costs to double or worse. Yet measuring only costs can substantially underestimate the importance of yield improvement. We show that yields are especially important in periods of constrained capacity, such as new product ramp-up. Our analysis is illustrated with numerical examples taken from hard disk drive manufacturing. A three percentage point increase in yields can be worth about 6% of gross revenue and 17% of contribution. In fact, an eight percentage point improvement ...


The Impact Of Cash Flow Volatility On Discretionary Investment And The Costs Of Debt And Equity Financing, Bernadette A. Minton, Catherine M. Schrand Dec 1999

The Impact Of Cash Flow Volatility On Discretionary Investment And The Costs Of Debt And Equity Financing, Bernadette A. Minton, Catherine M. Schrand

Accounting Papers

We show that higher cash flow volatility is associated with lower average levels of investment in capital expenditures, R&D, and advertising. This association suggests that firms do not use external capital markets to fully cover cash flow shortfalls but rather permanently forgo investment. Cash flow volatility also is associated with higher costs of accessing external capital. Moreover, these higher costs, as measured by some proxies, imply a greater sensitivity of investment to cash flow volatility. Thus, cash flow volatility not only increases the likelihood that a firm will need to access capital markets, it also increases the costs of ...


Comparative Economic Organization—Within And Between Countries, Witold J. Henisz, Oliver E. Williamson Dec 1999

Comparative Economic Organization—Within And Between Countries, Witold J. Henisz, Oliver E. Williamson

Management Papers

This paper explores the implications of going beyond transaction cost theory's implicit focus on domestic investors to include multinational actors. As developed herein, the discriminating alignment between the level of hazards (contractual and/or political) and the mode of governance carries over. In the open-economy context, such an alignment reflects the hazards that arise from the nature of the transaction and those that arise from the nature of the political and regulatory environment.


Modeling Reputational And Informational Influences In Threshold Models Of Bandwagon Innovation Diffusion, Lori Rosenkopf, Eric Abrahamson Dec 1999

Modeling Reputational And Informational Influences In Threshold Models Of Bandwagon Innovation Diffusion, Lori Rosenkopf, Eric Abrahamson

Management Papers

Bandwagon innovation diffusion is characterized by a positive feedback loop where adoptions by some actors increase the pressure to adopt for other actors. In particular, when gains from an innovation are difficult to quantify, such as implementing quality circles or downsizing practices, diffusion is likely to occur through a bandwagon process. In this paper we extend Abrahamson and Rosenkopf&2018;s (1993) model of bandwagon diffusion to examine both reputational and informational influences on this process. We find that the distribution of reputations among the set of potential adopters affects the extent of bandwagon diffusion under conditions of moderate ambiguity, and ...


Narratives Serially Constructed And Lived: Ethnicity In Cross-Gender Strikes 1887-1903, Ileen A. Devault Dec 1999

Narratives Serially Constructed And Lived: Ethnicity In Cross-Gender Strikes 1887-1903, Ileen A. Devault

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] The strikes narrated in this paper have illustrated different ways in which individuals' recognition of ethnic identity could interact with their recognition of gender and class identities. In each strike workers' identities developed along with the serial narrative of the particular strike situation. The use of Sartre's concept of the series helps us think about the many possible variations of class, ethnicity, and gender. Though Sartre planned to use his concept of series as a way to examine peoples' class identities, my employment of the concept broadens it to include other categories of identification as well. Using the ...


Designing And Positioning Food Services For Multicultural Markets, Rohit Verma, Madeleine E. Pullman, John C. Goodale Dec 1999

Designing And Positioning Food Services For Multicultural Markets, Rohit Verma, Madeleine E. Pullman, John C. Goodale

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Businesses that seek to develop an appropriate operations strategy for serving a multicultural customer market face challenges that are distinct from businesses that serve a relatively homogeneous local market. While the strategic implications of expanding services from a domestic market to international locations have been well documented, the issue of dealing with multinational customers at a single location has largely been neglected by researchers, as far as we can determine.

This paper attempts to fill the research gap by presenting a method for determining the extent to which restaurant managers should maintain standard menus and food items, as opposed ...


Understanding Consumer Usage Of Product Magnitudes Through Sorting Tasks, Madhubalan Viswanathan, Michael D. Johnson, Seymour Sudman Dec 1999

Understanding Consumer Usage Of Product Magnitudes Through Sorting Tasks, Madhubalan Viswanathan, Michael D. Johnson, Seymour Sudman

Articles and Chapters

Magnitudes describing product attributes are basic elements used in decision making. Although several researchers have emphasized the need to understand how consumers categorize product attributes, empirical research on this issue is rare. As a first step in developing and evaluating methodologies to examine this issue, a sorting task methodology is introduced to study this problem. Hypotheses were generated to address important theoretical issues relating to how consumers use magnitudes describing product attributes and tested in two studies. The results suggest that the number of magnitudes used by consumers to think about product attributes (i) is higher for abstract when compared ...

Making Use Of Difference: Diversity, Debate, And Decision Comprehensiveness In Top Management Teams, Tony L. Simons, Lisa Hope Pelled, Ken A. Smith Dec 1999

Making Use Of Difference: Diversity, Debate, And Decision Comprehensiveness In Top Management Teams, Tony L. Simons, Lisa Hope Pelled, Ken A. Smith

Tony L. Simons

This study examined how top management team diversity variables and debate interacted to influence two measures of company financial performance. Further, it assessed the degree to which decision comprehensiveness mediated those interaction effects. Multi-informant data from the top management teams of 57 manufacturing companies revealed that more job-related types of diversity interacted with debate to influence financial performance, but a less job-related type (age diversity) did not. Decision comprehensiveness partially mediated those effects.


Impacts Of Economic Reform In Poland; Incidence And Welfare Changes Within A Consistent Framework, Sonya Kostova Huffman, Stanley R. Johnson Dec 1999

Impacts Of Economic Reform In Poland; Incidence And Welfare Changes Within A Consistent Framework, Sonya Kostova Huffman, Stanley R. Johnson

Economic Staff Paper Series

Many Central and Eastern European nations transitioned from centrally planned to market economies during the early 1990's. Murphy et al. [1992] and Boycko [1992] have provided analysis of the reform process for these planned economies, highlighting problems of policy im certainty, timing, partial government ownership and other factors that lead to the associated economic decline. In an empirical study Blanchard and Kremer [1997] have shown that aggregate output declined 40- 70 percent in industries across the republics of the former Soviet union over the 1989-94 period with the larger declines in sectors having more complex production process.


The Timeliness Of Performance Information In Determining Executive Compensation, Kevin F. Hallock, Paul Oyer Dec 1999

The Timeliness Of Performance Information In Determining Executive Compensation, Kevin F. Hallock, Paul Oyer

Articles and Chapters

We study whether boards of directors concentrate on performance near compensation decision times rather than providing consistent incentives for chief executive officers (CEO). throughout the fiscal year. We show empirically that managers can profit by moving sales revenue among fiscal quarters. Though this may suggest that boards use short-term trends when determining rewards, we find evidence consistent with boards tying pay to recent sales growth so as to use the best information about future performance. We also find that the timing of profits throughout the year does not affect CEO pay, which may suggest that smoothing firm income is important ...

Private R&D Investments In Agriculture: The Role Of Incentives And Institutions, Oscar Alfranca, Wallace E. Huffman Dec 1999

Private R&D Investments In Agriculture: The Role Of Incentives And Institutions, Oscar Alfranca, Wallace E. Huffman

Economic Staff Paper Series

This paper presents econometric evidence of the effects of economic incentives and institutions on national aggregate private agricultural R&D investments. Amodel is proposed and fitted to annual data for seven European Union countries, 1984-1995. We find strong impacts ofboth incentives and mstitutions on private agricultural R&D investment, and including institutional factors strengthens the story and in some case changes greatly the results. In particular, we reject the hypothesis that quality ofproperty rights does not matter. We find that stronger contract enforcement, more efficient public bureaucracies, and stronger patent rights lead to larger aggregate private agricultural R&D investment ...
