Corporate Governance And Managerial Incompetence: Lessons From Kmart, D. Gordon Smith Apr 1996

Corporate Governance And Managerial Incompetence: Lessons From Kmart, D. Gordon Smith

Faculty Scholarship

Modern corporate governance scholars often extol an activist role by institutional investors in directing corporate activity. Widely viewed as a solution to the collective action problems that inhibit such activism by individual investors, institutional investors are praised for adding value to corporations through their participation in the decision making process. The ouster of Joseph Antonini as Chief Executive Officer of Kmart Corporation in 1995 might be taken as a vindication of this view, because substantial evidence indicates that institutional investors played a crucial role in influencing Kmart's board of directors to remove him. In this Article, Professor Smith challenges ...


The Marginal Cost Of Funds With Nonseparable Public Spending, Shaghil Ahmed, Dean D. Croushore Apr 1996

The Marginal Cost Of Funds With Nonseparable Public Spending, Shaghil Ahmed, Dean D. Croushore

Economics Faculty Publications

This article provides new calculations of the welfare effects of fiscal changes when the publicly provided good is nonseparable in utility and production so that it affects economic agents' marginal decisions. The authors' results show that these nonseparabilities significantly alter the marginal cost of funds (MCF) that previous studies have calculated. The authors also report estimates of the nonseparable marginal benefits (NSMB) associated with aggregate government purchases. The net marginal cost offunds (NMCF ), which is equal to MCF - NSMB, is in general positive over a wide range of parameter values that encompass empirically relevant specifications. Thus the nonseparable benefits by ...

Club Gaming In New South Wales, Australia: The Transition To Industry Maturity, Nerilee Hing Jan 1996

Club Gaming In New South Wales, Australia: The Transition To Industry Maturity, Nerilee Hing

School of Tourism and Hospitality Management

The New South Wales club gaming industry has existed for nearly forty years since the introduction of slot machines in 1956 and has witnessed the impact of changing legal, competitive, social, economic and technological factors on its competitiveness. Using Michael Porter's framework of competitive forces (1980), this paper analyzes the industry's lifecycle in terms of entry barriers, industry rivals, customer markets and substitute products. This analysis provides evidence that the industry has evolved from an emergent industry to one which is now approaching maturity. Industry cooperation, strategic management and a refocussing of marketing efforts are suggested as suitable ...
