The Year Of Sport And Society In Review, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2001

The Year Of Sport And Society In Review, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Normally I don't do a year in review piece although I think I did review the year in Sport and Society one time. I will do it because of the fact that one event so dominated American consciousness this past year that it will make this calendar year a very memorable and special one.


Toward A New Theory Of The Shareholder Role: A Sacred Space In Corporate Transactions, Robert B. Thompson, D. Gordon Smith Dec 2001

Toward A New Theory Of The Shareholder Role: A Sacred Space In Corporate Transactions, Robert B. Thompson, D. Gordon Smith

Faculty Scholarship

Corporate law expresses a profound ambiguity toward the role of shareholders. Courts announce that shareholders are critical to the theory that legitimates the exercise of power - by directors and officers over vast aggregations of property that they do not own. At the same time shareholders have a very difficult time actually making any corporate decisions. In this Article, we strive to define a new role for shareholders by drawing on economic theories of the firm and the structure of corporate law. More particularly we examine the role of shareholders in hostile corporate takeovers, the area where the interests of shareholders ...

Economic Inequality And Burden-Sharing In The Provision Of Local Environmental Quality, Juan Camilo Cardenas, John K. Stranlund, Cleve Willis Dec 2001

Economic Inequality And Burden-Sharing In The Provision Of Local Environmental Quality, Juan Camilo Cardenas, John K. Stranlund, Cleve Willis

John K. Stranlund

A large, but inconclusive, literature addresses how economic heterogeneity affects the use of local resources and local environmental quality. One line of thought, which derives from Nash equilibrium provision of public goods, suggests that in contexts in which individual actions degrade local environmental quality, wealthier people in a community will tend to do more to protect environmental quality. In this paper we report on experiments performed in rural Colombia that were designed to explore the role that economic inequality plays in the ‘provision’ of local environmental quality. Subjects were asked to decide how much time to devote to collecting firewood ...

Sport And The Theater Of The Absurd, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2001

Sport And The Theater Of The Absurd, Richard C. Crepeau

Minimising Attainment Deficit: A Leadership Process Theory, George K. Kriflik, Robert Jones Dec 2001

Minimising Attainment Deficit: A Leadership Process Theory, George K. Kriflik, Robert Jones

Faculty of Commerce - Papers (Archive)

Leadership as a process was found by RTA workers to fulfill their need for attaining their potential in their jobs. This article presents an overview of this substantive theory which emerged during a Grounded Theory study. Minimising Attainment Deficit, the process, comprises a number of Leader Strategies which aim to modify workplace conditions and so alter workers’ behaviours. The fundamental premise of this theory is the workers’ perceptions of their own potential and their perception of what they are currently achieving, and that any shortfall in achievement results in an Attainment Deficit. Minimising Attainment Deficit Unleashes workers to achieve higher ...

Essays On Disclosure, Robert E. Verrecchia Dec 2001

Essays On Disclosure, Robert E. Verrecchia

Accounting Papers

The purpose of this paper is two-fold. First, I attempt a taxonomy of the extant accounting literature on disclosure: that is, a categorization of the various models of disclosure in the literature into well-integrated topics. With regard to the taxonomy, I suggest three broad categories of disclosure research in accounting. The first category, which I dub “association-based disclosure”, is work that studies the effect of exogenous disclosure on the cumulative change or disruption in investors’ individual actions, primarily through the behavior of asset equilibrium prices and trading volume. The second category, which I dub “discretionary-based disclosure”, is work that examines ...


Enriching Or Depleting? The Dynamics Of Engagement In Work And Family Roles, Nancy P. Rothbard Dec 2001

Enriching Or Depleting? The Dynamics Of Engagement In Work And Family Roles, Nancy P. Rothbard

Management Papers

This study develops a model of engagement in the multiple roles of work and family. I examine two competing arguments about the effects of engaging in multiple roles, depletion and enrichment, and integrate them by identifying the type of emotional response to a role, negative or positive, as a critical contrasting assumption held by these two perspectives. Moreover, I represent depletion and enrichment as complex multistep processes that include multiple constructs, such as engagement and emotion. This study jointly examines both the depleting and enriching processes that link engagement in one role to engagement in another, using structural equation modeling ...

Assessing Empirical Research In Managerial Accounting: A Value-Based Management Perspective, Christopher D. Ittner, David F. Larcker Dec 2001

Assessing Empirical Research In Managerial Accounting: A Value-Based Management Perspective, Christopher D. Ittner, David F. Larcker

Accounting Papers

This paper applies a value-based management framework to critically review empirical research in managerial accounting. This framework enables us to place the exceptionally diverse set of managerial accounting studies from the past several decades into an integrated structure. Our synthesis highlights the many consistent results in prior research, identifies remaining gaps and inconsistencies, discusses common methodological and econometric problems, and suggests fruitful avenues for future managerial accounting research.


Setting Up The Books: A Forest Owner's Guide To Capital Accounts And Record-Keeping For Federal Income, The University Of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service Dec 2001

Setting Up The Books: A Forest Owner's Guide To Capital Accounts And Record-Keeping For Federal Income, The University Of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service

Financial Management

Forest owners have a number of federal income tax incentives available to them. Growing timber can 2 be an income-producing activity, with the trees being considered a capital asset. Income from sales or other disposition of capital assets is then taxed at capital gains rates, as opposed to ordinary income tax rates. Investments in timber can be recovered through depletion deductions and reforestation expenses, qualifying for a tax credit. These provisions and others in the tax code encourage timber production, which is generally considered to be good for both the ecology and the economy. This publication will assist you in ...


The Influence Of Firm Dispositions On Interfirm Relationship Formation In Business Markets, Jean L. Johnson, Ravipreet S. Sohi Dec 2001

The Influence Of Firm Dispositions On Interfirm Relationship Formation In Business Markets, Jean L. Johnson, Ravipreet S. Sohi

Marketing Department Faculty Publications

The central premise of this paper is that firm level characteristics or behavioral traits, referred to as predispositions, influence how the firm behaves and interacts in its interfirm relationships (EFRs). This augments traditional approaches that focus on the intra-relationship perspective and/or on environmental influences on the relationship. Firm predispositions of strategic intent and relational proclivity are expected to individually, and in combination, increase the extent of connectedness between partners in interfirm relationships. In turn, through connectedness, they affect relationship effectiveness in terms of reciprocity, information exchange, and cooperation. Results indicated that the predispositions increased connectedness, but combinational effects were ...


Gerechtigkeit Ohne Gewerkschaft Und Betriebsrat? Konfliktschlichtung In Gewerkschaftsfreien Betrieben In Den Usa, Alexander Colvin Dec 2001

Gerechtigkeit Ohne Gewerkschaft Und Betriebsrat? Konfliktschlichtung In Gewerkschaftsfreien Betrieben In Den Usa, Alexander Colvin

Articles and Chapters

Zu den Faktoren, die in jüngster Zeit in mehreren Ländern – insbesondere in den USA – zu einem Rückgang der Mitgliederzahlen der Gewerkschaften geführt haben, zählen Strategien des Human Resource Managements wie „nonunion arbitration“ (gewerkschaftsfreies Schiedsverfahren“. Arbeitgeber in nicht tarif- und gewerkschaftsgebundenen Betrieben führen solche „neuen Verfahren der Konfliktschlichtung“ (NVK) mit dem Ziel ein, einen Teilersatz für die gewerkschaftliche Interessenvertretung zu gewähren. Sie stellen eine besondere Herausforderung für die Gewerkschaften dar und machen die Anpassung ihrer Interessenvertretungsstrategien erforderlich. Zwei alternative Handlungsmöglichkeiten bieten sich an. Eine Möglichkeit besteht darin , solche NVK einfach mit dem Argument abzulehnen, dass es sich um Einrichtungen handelt, die ...

A Review Of The Literature And Implications For People With Disabilities (E-Human Resources Literature Review), Susanne M. Bruyere, William Erickson Dec 2001

A Review Of The Literature And Implications For People With Disabilities (E-Human Resources Literature Review), Susanne M. Bruyere, William Erickson

K. Lisa Yang and Hock E. Tan Institute on Employment and Disability Collection

To accomplish this overview, an extensive review of the literature on information technology applications to the employment process was conducted. Three human resources related uses of the Internet are explored in this review of current literature: E-recruiting, E-benefits/HR, E-training. Each of these areas can have a significant impact on employees with disabilities, especially given the growth of business’ use of the Web. If E-recruiting is not accessible, it could prevent people from applying for or even finding open positions. E-training, if not accessible, could create a new barrier to the advancement of individuals who are unable to access online ...

Models Of Farm Service Agency Guaranteed Loan Loss Claim Rates In The U.S. For 1990-1998, Latisha A. Settlage, Bruce L. Dixon, Bruce L. Ahrendsen, Steven R. Koenig

Research Reports and Research Bulletins

The Farm Service Agency guaranteed loan program is an important source of credit for family-sized farming operations in Arkansas and the other states of the U.S. This program provides loan guarantees to borrowers who are otherwise unable to obtain credit from traditional lenders at reasonable rates and terms. This study identifies those factors related to the program’s loss claim rate performance over the years fiscal 1989 through 1998 using state-level data from forty states. For both the operating loan and farm ownership loan programs, farm operator financial variables, interest rates, and commercial bank characteristics are found to be ...


The Value Of Consumers Of Genetically Modified Food Labels In A Market With Diverse Information: Evidence From Experimental Auctions, Wallace E. Huffman, Jason F. Shogren, Matthew Rousu, Abe Tegene Dec 2001

The Value Of Consumers Of Genetically Modified Food Labels In A Market With Diverse Information: Evidence From Experimental Auctions, Wallace E. Huffman, Jason F. Shogren, Matthew Rousu, Abe Tegene

Economic Staff Paper Series

When a food item might be genetically modified (GM) and divergent information about risks and benefits exists, do U.S. consumers value information provided by a label? This paper addresses this question by designing and conducting an experimental auction to elicit consumers' willingness to pay for both GM-labeled and standard-labeled foods. The evidence gathered for vegetable oil, tortilla chips, and potatoes shows that labels matter, and in particular, consumers werewilling to pay about a 14 percent premium for food items they perceived as non-GM. We found that women and men have similar reactions to the GM-food labels, butthe sequencing of ...


The Relationship Among Self-Esteem, Self-Efficacy, And Training Performance At A Government-Funded Nuclear Operations Complex In East Tennessee, Garland Sharp Dec 2001

The Relationship Among Self-Esteem, Self-Efficacy, And Training Performance At A Government-Funded Nuclear Operations Complex In East Tennessee, Garland Sharp

Masters Theses

The primary purpose of this study was to examine the relationship among self-efficacy, self-esteem, and training performance. This study was similar to a study conducted by Mone, Baker, and Jeffries in 1995. Using college students, Mone et al. (1995) tried to determine which construct, self-efficacy or self-esteem, more accurately predicted academic success. This study's purpose was to determine if relationships existed among self-efficacy, self-esteem, and training performance in an industrial training situation using employees in the workplace.

A self-esteem and self-efficacy instrument along with a written test were used to gather data from the entire population (N=75) of ...
