Communication And Cooperation In Social Dilemmas: A Meta-Analytic Review, Daniel BALLIET 2010 Singapore Management University

Communication And Cooperation In Social Dilemmas: A Meta-Analytic Review, Daniel Balliet

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

Among the most researched solutions to social dilemmas is communication. Since the late 1950s, it has been well known that communication enhances cooperation in social dilemmas. This article reports a meta-analysis of this literature (forty-five effect sizes) and finds a large positive effect of communication on cooperation in social dilemmas (d = 1.01). This effect is moderated by the type of communication, with a stronger effect of face-to-face discussion ( d = 1.21) compared to written messages (d = 0.46). The communication-cooperation relationship is also stronger in larger, compared to smaller, group social dilemmas. Whether communication occurred before or during iterated ...


Price Movers On The Stock Exchange Of Thailand: Evidence From A Fully Automated Order-Driven Market, Charlie Charoenwong, David K. DING, Nattawut Jenwittayaroje 2010 Nanyang Technological University

Price Movers On The Stock Exchange Of Thailand: Evidence From A Fully Automated Order-Driven Market, Charlie Charoenwong, David K. Ding, Nattawut Jenwittayaroje

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This study examines trade sizes used by informed traders. The selected sample includes 73 active stocks from the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), a pure limit order market, that cover two distinct market conditions of a bull and bear market. Using intraday data, the study finds that large sized trades (i.e., larger than the 75th percentile) account for a disproportionately large impact on changes in traded and quoted prices. This finding compares with the results of studies conducted on U.S. markets that show informed traders employ trade sizes falling between the 40th and 95th percentiles (Barclay and Warner ...

A Simulation For Content-Based And Utility-Based Recommendation Of Candidate Coalitions In Virtual Creativity Teams, Rory L. Sie, Marlies Bitter-Rijpkema, Peter Sloep

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

Psychological literature shows that people do not always make rational choices with respect to whom to collaborate with. Providing the value of candidate connections may help them choosing the right people to connect with in a network. This paper presents a model about coalitions in creativity that will be used to generate content-based and knowledge-based recommendations of candidate coalitions.

Coalition Formation In Networked Innovation: Directions For Future Research, Rory L. Sie, Marlies Bitter-Rijpkema, Peter Sloep

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

During the last several decades, we see a tendency towards openly distributed knowledge. Whereas we experienced an open source movement in the 80's, we now see that open learning and open innovation have become popular. Akin to open source code encouraging transformational creativity (Boden, 2004), open or networked innovation may lead to more effective organisational learning (Sloep, 2009a). This process of open knowledge exchange involves short time commitments, similar to those in Ad-Hoc Transient Communities (AHTC). We would like to pose a new view on the interpersonal ties in networked innovation, that is, the view of interpersonal ties as ...


Ethical Concerns Over The Use Of Fear Appeals When Targeting Vulnerable Populations, Stephanie Hutchinson 2010 Edith Cowan University

Ethical Concerns Over The Use Of Fear Appeals When Targeting Vulnerable Populations, Stephanie Hutchinson

Theses : Honours

Advertising is a promotional tool that marketers use to build awareness of an organisations product or service, and the success of their communication efforts lie in being able to effectively and efficiently reach their target audience, therefore different appeals are used to persuade different audiences. This study was conducted to determine if there was a positive relationship between the use of fear appeals targeted to vulnerable people, and the advertisement being perceived as unethical, therefore providing a better understanding of the effects of advertising tactics that involve a disadvantaged target audience who may be prone to manipulation, and the detrimental ...

Towards An Understanding Of International City Break Travel, Gerard Dunne, Sheila Flanagan, Joan Buckley 2010 Technological University Dublin

Towards An Understanding Of International City Break Travel, Gerard Dunne, Sheila Flanagan, Joan Buckley

Articles

This paper explores city break tourism and in particular the distinctive characteristics of this form of travel. The city break is examined and compared to other types of trips. The research follows a sequential mixed methods approach involving both a visitor survey and in-depth interviews. The findings show the international city break trip to have a number of distinctive characteristics. These are summarised into five main areas (5 Ds) – duration, distance, date flexibility, discretionary nature, and destination travel party. These distinguishing features provide a useful insight into one of the most important yet least examined travel segments in tourism research.

A Boyfriend To Die For: Edward Cullen As Compensated Psychopath In Stephanie Meyer’S Twilight, Debra Merskin 2009 University of Oregon

A Boyfriend To Die For: Edward Cullen As Compensated Psychopath In Stephanie Meyer’S Twilight, Debra Merskin

Debra Merskin

This article is an analysis of the teen-targeted vampire novel Twilight. The series and related merchandise have been a runaway financial success. Illustrative quotes from Twilight are presented according to Guggenbühl-Craig’s concept of the “compensated psychopath” (CP)—an individual who approaches the psychological extreme of psychopathy but is able to pass for functional in society. The author argues the lead male character Edward Cullen is a CP and that the representation is problematic. The book’s main female character, Bella Swan, becomes completely dependent on Edward, desires him in part because he seems unattainable, and is willing to die ...

The Post-Nuclear Family And The Depoliticization Of Unplanned Pregnancy In Juno, Knocked Up, And Waitress, Kristen Hoerl, Casey R. Kelly, Kristen Hoerl, Casey R. Kelly 2009 Butler University

The Post-Nuclear Family And The Depoliticization Of Unplanned Pregnancy In Juno, Knocked Up, And Waitress, Kristen Hoerl, Casey R. Kelly, Kristen Hoerl, Casey R. Kelly

Kristen Hoerl

This essay explores three films from 2007, Knocked Up, Juno, and Waitress, which foreground young women's unplanned pregnancies. These movies depoliticize women's reproduction and motherhood through narratives that rearticulate the meaning of choice. Bypassing the subject of abortion, the women's decisions revolve around their choice of heterosexual partners and investment in romantic relationships. Although they question the viability of the nuclear family for single pregnant women, these films represent new iterations of post-feminism that ultimately restore conservative ideas that valorize pregnancy and motherhood as women's imperatives. We conclude by addressing how these movies present a distorted ...

Preliminary Findings From The New Leaders For New Schools Evaluation, Paul Heaton

Paul Heaton

Effective school leadership is widely seen as a key determinant of student achievement, yet it remains unclear what constitutes an effective principal. To address the need to develop new principals to lead urban schools, the New Leaders for New Schools organization was established with the goal of ensuring high academic achievement for all students by attracting, preparing, and supporting leaders for urban public schools. This working paper presents preliminary findings on the impact of attending a school led by a K-8 school led by a New Leader. Using longitudinal student-level data collected from the six cities in which New Leaders ...

Shooting On A Moving Target: Explaining European Bank Rates During The Interwar Period, Kirsten Wandschneider 2009 Occidental College

Shooting On A Moving Target: Explaining European Bank Rates During The Interwar Period, Kirsten Wandschneider

Kirsten Wandschneider

This paper describes the monetary policy response of countries during the inter-war period. How did central banks react to the Great Depression? How did countries balance the externals demands of the gold standard with domestic policy pressures? What was the optimal level of international policy coordination? We use weekly data over the period 1925-1936 to estimate central bank rate reaction functions for a panel of 22 countries during the inter-war gold standard. The estimates suggest to us changing objectives for monetary policy. Countries moved away from the sole objective of convertibility and towards a more ‘modern’ monetary policy based on ...

Disentangling Fathering And Mothering: The Role Of Youth Personality., Heidi Stolz, B Barber, J Olsen, L Clifford

Heidi E Stolz

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the possibility that mothers' and fathers' support are differentially moderated by personality-informed latent classes in predicting youth social initiative, therefore making contingent the previously detected pattern of fathers' support being more impactful than mothers' support with regard to this outcome. To test this, we conducted mixture model regression analyses (separately for boys and girls). Guided by prior research, we used the youth personality scales activity, openness, and fearlessness, along with mothers' and fathers' support, to index the latent class assignments from the mixture model. Results for both boys and girls suggested ...
