Public Private Partnership Between Local Governments And Nonprofits In Japan, Naoko Okuyama, Yu Ishida, Naoto Yamauchi 2010 Akashi National College of Technology

Public Private Partnership Between Local Governments And Nonprofits In Japan, Naoko Okuyama, Yu Ishida, Naoto Yamauchi

Yu Ishida

In the framework of public sector reform and the recently popularized concept of a “new public sphere,” attention has been focused on the significance and effectiveness of public private partnership (PPP). However, the smooth operation of PPP practice is yet to be realized, and the nonprofit sector still faces challenges in becoming a government partner in public service provision. We examine government behavior in PPP practice and its stance on partnership practice and collaborative relations with contemporary nonprofit organizations. Through public finance statistics and a unique set of variables, an empirical analysis reveals that the existence of nonprofit organizations (NPOs ...


Fend For Sudan Unity, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed 2010 Department of Economics. Al Neelain University, Khartoum, Sudan

Fend For Sudan Unity, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Sudan is unified as a country by many bonds that are also reasons for it disintegration. From the year 2005 where Nivasha Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the North and South parts, to 2011 the efforts of dividing the country were evident. From 2005, many analysts, tried to warn of the coming consequences of the Southern part secession. There were calls for improvements of the current regime's totalitarianism, open the doors for democracy, sharing people in power and decision making and amending human standards and freedom. However, all calls fell on deaf ears. The Darfur crisis accelerated and the regime ...


Hypothetical Bias In Dichotomous Choice Contingent Valuation Studies, Michael Ash, James J. Murphy, Thomas H. Stevens 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Hypothetical Bias In Dichotomous Choice Contingent Valuation Studies, Michael Ash, James J. Murphy, Thomas H. Stevens

Michael Ash

This paper uses a meta-analysis to explore the relationship between hypothetical bias and the price respondents are asked to pay. For public goods, the results clearly indicate a difference in the price elasticity between hypothetical and actual payment conditions. Since the bias increases for larger dollar amounts, any simple guidelines, such as NOAA’s “divide by two” rule of thumb, could be misleading. Future attempts to calibrate contingent valuation responses should reflect this price sensitivity.


An Eu Sky Trust: Distributional Analysis For Hungary, Viola Ferjentsik, Michael Ash 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

An Eu Sky Trust: Distributional Analysis For Hungary, Viola Ferjentsik, Michael Ash

Michael Ash

We analyze the effects of EU adoption of a Sky Trust (Barnes and Breslow 2003) on the income distribution of Hungary, a lower-middle income EU member. We use plausible parameters for an EU carbon charge and revenue recycling system, input-output data to track the effect of a carbon charge on commodity prices, and household consumption survey data to examine the effect on expenditure by decile. We find that the carbon-charge revenue collection is nearly flat with respect to income. Combined with Sky Trust revenue recycling, the net effect on income distribution is moderately progressive. For a Sky Trust structure that ...


Determinants Of Dividend Payments, Kate Brown, Vichet Sum 2010 University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Determinants Of Dividend Payments, Kate Brown, Vichet Sum

Vichet Sum

This paper explores the contribution of various financial measures in explaining the variability in a firm’s dividend payments. Ordinary least squares analysis of data from 2003 to 2007 shows that approximately 71% of the variability in dividend payments is explained by the firm’s expected growth rate of revenues, earnings before interest and tax, market debt to capital ratio, and effective tax rate. The findings support theories in the literature that dividends paid by a firm decrease with higher expected growth in revenues, lower earnings before interest and tax, higher debt service requirements, and higher effective tax rates.

Management-Based Regulation: Prescribing Private Management To Achieve Public Goals, Cary Coglianese, David Lazer 2010 Harvard University

Management-Based Regulation: Prescribing Private Management To Achieve Public Goals, Cary Coglianese, David Lazer

David Lazer

We analyze a little-studied regulatory approach that we call "management-based" regulation. Management-based regulation directs regulated organizations to engage in a planning process that aims toward the achievement of public goals, offering firms flexibility in how they achieve public goals. In this paper we develop a framework for assessing conditions for using management-based regulation as opposed to the more traditional technology-based or performance-based regulation. Drawing on case studies of management-based regulation in the areas of food safety, industrial safety, and environmental protection, we show how management-based regulation can be an effective strategy when regulated entities are heterogeneous and regulatory outputs are ...


Accidental Leaders No More: Challenges Facing Healthcare Leaders Of Today And Tomorrow, Knowledge@SMU 2010 Singapore Management University

Accidental Leaders No More: Challenges Facing Healthcare Leaders Of Today And Tomorrow, Knowledge@Smu

Knowledge@SMU

Singapore’s ageing population means healthcare costs are going up at faster than ever. The heavier workload and growing business opportunities within this essential industry also means that on-going tensions between the public and private sectors are unlikely to go away anytime soon. Yet, at the same time, the industry faces multi-dimensional challenges, like rapidly-changing technology and fierce competition for talent. How can healthcare organisations prepare themselves for the challenges ahead? For a start, they could use a pipeline of formally-trained leaders.
