The Work Ethic, Frank Heller, S. Antonio Ruiz-Quintanilla Jun 1995

The Work Ethic, Frank Heller, S. Antonio Ruiz-Quintanilla

CAHRS Working Paper Series

[Excerpt] In everyday usage of the term 'Work Ethic' is almost indistinguishable from work satisfaction or simply attitudes to work. Do people value work or not, or are they in various degrees indifferent to it? Since most adults are expected to work and most do in order to make a living, the work ethic in this popular use of the term is, on average, positive for most people. Nevertheless there are bound to be variations in this average and in the distribution around the average for different groups of people.


Fraud Prevention Through Internal Controls, Elisabeth Higgins Apr 1995

Fraud Prevention Through Internal Controls, Elisabeth Higgins

Business, Accounting and Economics Undergraduate Theses

Fraud is a problem that occurs in all types of businesses. Documented frauds can be found in very small non-profit organizations as well as in multi-million dollar corporations. The costs can range from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars, resulting in lost revenues and profits. Faced with the potential for diminished profitability, management should be more concerned with the issue of fraud. Many managers and executives consider fraud an unfortunate cost of doing business. However, it is a cost that business leaders can address. Internal controls have been called "protection from fraud and waste" (Whittington et al., 238 ...

The Evolution Of First Amendment Protection For Commercial Speech, Karl Boedecker, Fred W. Morgan, Linda Berns Wright Jan 1995

The Evolution Of First Amendment Protection For Commercial Speech, Karl Boedecker, Fred W. Morgan, Linda Berns Wright

Economics, Law, and International Business

During the past 15 years, the U. S. Supreme Court has used Central Hudson Gas v. Public Service Commission (1980) to expand significantly the power of the government at all levels to regulate advertising and other promotional activities. As a result, first amendment protection for commercial speech has steadily diminished. In this article, Supreme Court decisions subsequent to Central Hudson are reviewed to provide an update of Cohen's (1978) work. In addition, the current standard for identifying commercial speech is analyzed, and managerial recommendations are made to guide managers who are responsible for making promotional decisions in this increasingly ...

What's Wrong With Exploitation?, Justin Schwartz Jan 1995

What's Wrong With Exploitation?, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

Abstract: Marx thinks that capitalism is exploitative, and that is a major basis for his objections to it. But what's wrong with exploitation, as Marx sees it? (The paper is exegetical in character: my object is to understand what Marx believed,) The received view, held by Norman Geras, G.A. Cohen, and others, is that Marx thought that capitalism was unjust, because in the crudest sense, capitalists robbed labor of property that was rightfully the workers' because the workers and not the capitalists produced it. This view depends on a Labor Theory of Property (LTP), that property rights are ...


In Defence Of Exploitation, Justin Schwartz Jan 1995

In Defence Of Exploitation, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

The concept of exploitation is thought to be central to Marx's Critique of capitalism. John Roemer, an analytical (then-) Marxist economist now at Yale, attacked this idea in a series of papers and books in the 1970s-1990s, arguing that Marxists should be concerned with inequality rather than exploitation -- with distribution rather than production, precisely the opposite of what Marx urged in The Critique of the Gotha Progam.

This paper expounds and criticizes Roemer's objections and his alternative inequality based theory of exploitation, while accepting some of his criticisms. It may be viewed as a companion paper to my ...

An Economic Analysis Of Trade Measures To Protect The Global Environment, Howard F. Chang Jan 1995

An Economic Analysis Of Trade Measures To Protect The Global Environment, Howard F. Chang

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

In this article, Professor Howard Chang addresses the role of trade restrictions in supporting policies to protect the global environment and proposes a more liberal treatment of these environmental trade measures than that adopted by dispute-settlement panels of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). The GATT Secretariat has recommended that countries like the United States rely on "carrots" rather than "sticks" in order to induce the participation of other countries in multilateral environmental agreements. Professor Chang defends the use of sticks on the ground that they encourage more restrained exploitation of the environment pending a multilateral agreement. First ...
