Retirement Planning: Rounding Out The Career Planning Process, Paula C. Morrow Jan 1985

Retirement Planning: Rounding Out The Career Planning Process, Paula C. Morrow

Management Publications

Retirement planning has historically been the responsibility of the private citizen with governmental involvement restricted to Social Security program administration. A number of factors have arisen during the last decade, however, which have shifted some of the responsibility for retirement preparation onto a new third party: the employer. Federal legislation raising the minimum compulsory retirement age from 65 to 70 years (1978 amendments to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act), tighter restrictions on pension policies, and demographic trends which threaten the solvency of the Social Security program have forced many employers to take a more active role in their employees ...

Evils Of Modern Stables, James Irvine Lupton Jan 1984

Evils Of Modern Stables, James Irvine Lupton

EQUINES

Portions of veterinarian James Irvine Lupton's book on horse management that deal with the problems of confinement husbandry practices have been selected as a significant historical record of humane concerns that were documented one hundred years ago. While the author's descriptive prose may lack scientific "objectivity," it does express a common sense morality and the subjective and intuitive observations and conclusions of an experienced veterinarian who clearly respects and understands the horse. His words bespeak of a bygone era where the care or husbandry of animals was both an art and a science, a discipline based upon empathy ...

Organizing Business, Michael Useem Jan 1984

Organizing Business, Michael Useem

Management Papers

This book offers a new thesis concerning the nature of contemporary political activity by large business firms. I will argue that a politicized leading edge of the leadership of a number of major corporations has come to play a major role in defining and promoting the shared needs of large corporations in two of the industrial democracies, the United States and the United Kingdom. Rooted in intercorporate networks through shared ownership and directorship of large companies in both countries, this politically active group of directors and top managers gives coherence and direction to the politics of business. Most business leaders ...

A Theory Of Future's Market Responses To Government Crop Forecasts, Barry Falk, Peter F. Orazem Jan 1984

A Theory Of Future's Market Responses To Government Crop Forecasts, Barry Falk, Peter F. Orazem

Economic Staff Paper Series

Recently, there has been considerable debate in the government, business and academic communities regarding the value, accuracy, frequency and necessity of government crop forecasts. This debate has intensified due to several developments. The first is the recent trend toward slowing the growth in non-defense public sector expenditures. As the federal budget has been stretched tighter, some information activities have been curtailed. These cutbacks have coincided with a second, not necessarily uncorrelated, development; the increased sophistication of private information collection activities. Private firms now partially duplicate government efforts to disseminate information on, and predictions of, crop forecasts.


The Economics And Jurisprudence Of Convertible Bonds, William W. Bratton Jan 1984

The Economics And Jurisprudence Of Convertible Bonds, William W. Bratton

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

Professor Bratton examines judicial regulation of issuer-bondholder conflicts of interest within three different, but closely related doctrinal frameworks: neoclassical contract interpretation; contract avoidance; and corporate law fiduciary restraint. After discussing the elements of convertible bond valuation and their interaction with issuer actions giving rise to conflicts of interest, he evaluates the case for judicial intervention to protect bondholder interests. He concludes that ·bondholder protective intervention is fair and tolerably efficient, provided it is kept within the bounds of contract interpretation. But he finds that more aggressive judicial intervention under the frameworks of contract avoidance and fiduciary restraint carries an unnecessary ...

Some Simpler Methods Of Accounting For The Effects Of Changing Prices, Surendra P. Agrawal, Kenneth Yale Rosenzweig Oct 1983

Some Simpler Methods Of Accounting For The Effects Of Changing Prices, Surendra P. Agrawal, Kenneth Yale Rosenzweig

Accounting Faculty Publications

The complexities of accounting for the effects of changing prices on financial statements could be lessened with the use of simpler accounting methods. Because of existing complexities, even industrialized countries require only their larger business entities to provide inflation-adjusted information. Such information is prepared by making numerous adjustments to the traditional, historical cost-based data. For example, in the United Kingdom, inflation-adjusted income is calculated in two stages: operating profit and profit attributable to shareholders. These calculations are based on the concept of value to the business and require complicated adjustments with respect to cost of goods sold, depreciation, monetary working ...

Concept Redundancy In Organizational Research: The Case Of Work Commitment, Paula C. Morrow Jul 1983

Concept Redundancy In Organizational Research: The Case Of Work Commitment, Paula C. Morrow

Management Publications

A facet design describing the theoretical and empirical interrelationships among five forms of work commitment (Protestant work ethic, career salience, job involvement/work as a central life interest, organizational commitment, and union commitment) is presented. The analysis reveals that these concepts are partially redundant and insufficiently distinct to warrent continued separation. Suggestions for advancing the study of work commitment are rendered.


The Next Generation Of U.S. Farm Policies, Neil Harl, Dennis Starleaf, Bob Wisner, Gene Futrell, Charles Gratto, Arnold Paulsen, C. Phillip Baumel, Earl Heady, John Miranowski, Michael Boehlje Jun 1983

The Next Generation Of U.S. Farm Policies, Neil Harl, Dennis Starleaf, Bob Wisner, Gene Futrell, Charles Gratto, Arnold Paulsen, C. Phillip Baumel, Earl Heady, John Miranowski, Michael Boehlje

ISU Economic Report Series

Clearly U.S. agriculture has excess capacity. U.S. consumption plus foreign sales were 5-10% less than production in 1981 and 82. Except for massive and expensive supply control, 1983 production would similarly exceed the weak current demand. Stocks of corn and rice at the end of the current marketing year will be about 50% of this year's utilization. For wheat and cotton the carryover into next year will be about 70% of this years' disappearance...


The Behavior Of Confined Calves Raised For Veal: Are These Animals Distressed?, M. Kiley-Worthington Jan 1983

The Behavior Of Confined Calves Raised For Veal: Are These Animals Distressed?, M. Kiley-Worthington

ETHOLOGY

The behavior of 12 calves confined in crates was recorded at 1-minute intervals for 12-hour periods. These recordings were made at fortnightly intervals from approximately 2 to 16 weeks of age. In all, 864 hours of observations were recorded.

The activities that were performed and the amount of time spent doing each are outlined. Circadian rhythms were controlled largely by feeding time, although there was a difference between diurnal and nocturnal behavior. Individual calves vaned tn how they adapted to the restricted environment. Individual personality profiles and data on the ontogeny of behavior under these conditions are presented.

Industry Self-Regulation: An Economic, Organizational, And Political Analysis, Lawrence J. Lad, Anil K. Gupta Jan 1983

Industry Self-Regulation: An Economic, Organizational, And Political Analysis, Lawrence J. Lad, Anil K. Gupta

Scholarship and Professional Work - Business

Researchers generally have viewed nonmarket regulation of firm behavior as synonymous with direct regulation by the government. This paper highlights industry self-regulation as an alternative form of nonmarket regulation that, depending on the context, may supplement or complement direct regulation by the government. Further, on the basis of exploratory economic, organizational, and political analysis, it advances, for possible future research, propositions relating to the existence, operation, and out-come of industry self-regulation.

The Economics Of Farm Animal Welfare, A. J. F. Webster Jan 1982

The Economics Of Farm Animal Welfare, A. J. F. Webster

AGRIBUSINESS

The number of ways that one can be nice or nasty to animals are legion. This article will consider only one very specific aspect of farm animal welfare, namely, those systems of intensive animal production in which the system itself, irrespective of the quality of the stockmanship within the system, appears to restrict the normal behavior of farm animals to an unacceptable degree. The systems that were considered by the House of Commons Select Committee on Agriculure (1981) include egg production from hens in battery cages, production of veal from calves deprived of solid food and isolated in wooden crates ...

Hsus Veal Campaign Takes Off

CLOSE UP REPORTS

Through our action packet, which includes a fact sheet describing how veal calves are raised in this country, an action sheet showing what you can do to help, and bright yellow cards to leave when you dine out explaining why you didn't choose veal, you can help get the word out.

It is clear that our efforts to reform milk-fed veal production methods in the U.S. are already producing results. Shortly after our New York Times ad appeared, a large farm group paid to have its own ad published in response. Agricultural trade papers have warned their readers ...


Work Related Communication, Environmental Uncertainty, And Subunit Effectiveness: A Second Look At The Information Processing Approach To Subunit Communication, Paula C. Morrow Dec 1981

Work Related Communication, Environmental Uncertainty, And Subunit Effectiveness: A Second Look At The Information Processing Approach To Subunit Communication, Paula C. Morrow

Management Publications

The article discusses communication in organizations and looks at the effectiveness of contingency theory in analyzing operational research. The author critiques earlier research in this area, specifically by Boehm, Zedeck, and Tushman. She uses data from 90 of 100 subunits of a midwest state Extension Service. Questionnaires were sent out to assess work-related communications and information exchanges between the subunits, environmental conditions within each subunit, and the effectiveness of each office.


Hsus Uncovers Cruel Puppy Mills Sep 1981

Hsus Uncovers Cruel Puppy Mills

CLOSE UP REPORTS

It is estimated that puppy mills grind out more than half a million puppies every year to be sold almost exclusively in pet stores. But it is not only puppies--who, after all, escape the squalor and crowding after six or seven weeks that suffer. Of equal concern is the fate of the puppy mill breeding stock-living, breathing, feeling adult dogs-used to produce these "valuable" puppies. These dogs often are forced to spend their entire lives in cramped cages or pens, with not enough food or water and no shade from the scorching midwestern sun or shelter from the brutal winter ...

Farm Animal Welfare: Some Economic Considerations, Frances Turner, John Strak Jan 1981

Farm Animal Welfare: Some Economic Considerations, Frances Turner, John Strak

AGRIBUSINESS

Farmers, just like other businessmen, attempt to produce a saleable product at the least possible cost to themselves. In this way they hope to assure themselves of some profit, and hence to earn a living. In itself this profit motive cannot be criticized, but in attempting to maintain their profits, farmers have adopted more intensive systems of animal production. In turn, the benefits from farmers using these new techniques have accrued to consumers in the form of relatively less expensive food. Clearly, by restricting the use of factory farming methods (which are associated with lower unit costs of production) there ...


Farm Animal Welfare: Some Opinions, Michael W. Fox Jan 1981

Farm Animal Welfare: Some Opinions, Michael W. Fox

AGRIBUSINESS

The subject of farm animal welfare has evoked a wide range of responses from those involved in the livestock industry and those concerned about the humaneness of intensive husbandry farming practices. Books have been published on the subject as well as a large number of articles in professional and popular magazines. Three international symposia dealing with animal rights have been held in the last two years and a major European conference dealing with farm animal welfare and involving veterinarians, farmers, animal scientists and animal welfare groups was held in Amsterdam in 1979.

In the U.K., a governmental Farm Animal ...


Productivity And Farm Animal Welfare, Michael W. Fox Jan 1981

Productivity And Farm Animal Welfare, Michael W. Fox

AGRIBUSINESS

In the search for and debate over objective indices of farm animal welfare, productivity is regarded by many animal scientists and others in the livestock industry as the most reliable measure of an animal's overall well-being and adaptability. On the surface, this would seem to be so, as productivity--in terms of growth rate, milk yield, feed-conversion and egg production--can be easily quantified. However, there are serious flaws in this assumption.


The Involvement Of The Farm Animal Veterinarian In Animal Welfare, David G. Llewellyn Jan 1980

The Involvement Of The Farm Animal Veterinarian In Animal Welfare, David G. Llewellyn

VETERINARY SCIENCE AND MEDICINE

The farm animal practitioner has always played a dual role. The primary role is humanitarian, concerned with the well-being of the livestock, and the secondary role relates to the economics of the enterprise.
