An Examination Of The Financial Sensitivity Of The Defense Industry To Spending Strategies Of The United States Government, Ryan Carr 2020 University at Albany, State University of New York

An Examination Of The Financial Sensitivity Of The Defense Industry To Spending Strategies Of The United States Government, Ryan Carr

Business/Business Administration

Knowledge of the relationship between the financial performance of firms within the U.S. defense industry and the defense spending decisions by the United States Government is an important domain of research. Greater understanding can enable investors, communities, and employees to make more informed decisions about investments and/or career choices. In this work, I examined the financial statements of five major American defense contractors from 1993-1995, 2003-2005, and 2011-2013. Financial performance of these firms was then correlated with spending actions by the United States Defense Department. Although the financial sensitivity of these firms on spending decisions by the United ...


The Economics Of On-Farm Rice Drying In Arkansas, Clayton Parker 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Economics Of On-Farm Rice Drying In Arkansas, Clayton Parker

Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Undergraduate Honors Theses

Globally, rice producers are faced with the temporal problem of deciding the optimal time to being rice harvest. When harvested, paddy rice is typically at a moisture content (HMC) between 15 and 22%. Upon delivery, the rice is subsequently dried by the mill to a moisture content (MC) of 12.5%. Riceland Foods Inc., the largest miller of rice in the world, uses a stair-step pricing model to charge farmers to dry in price/unit as the MC of grain decreases from a range of +22% to 13.5%. This study estimates an alternative linear relationship in the stair-step model ...


The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich

Information Systems Undergraduate Honors Theses

There has long been an established relationship between art and business, finding its roots in the Industrial Revolution when the effects of arts on the economy were first explored. Since then, creative economies have been influenced by adaptation of businesses through urban development and revitalization and by continuous growth in artistic and cultural spaces. Capturing the relationship between arts and urban design, cultural districts establish strong economic communities within vastly creative, business- and culture-centered spaces. Current research provides insight to the economic, social, and cultural outcomes of creative economies.

As a contribution to that narrative, I will use this analysis ...


Impact On Personality On Attitudes Towards Diversity And Diversity Initiatives, Sana Lall-Trail 2020 William & Mary

Impact On Personality On Attitudes Towards Diversity And Diversity Initiatives, Sana Lall-Trail

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The present research aimed to understand the impact of personality on diversity attitudes in the workplace. Specifically, we explored the relationships between the personality traits of Openness to Experience and Agreeableness and general attitudes towards diversity (Study 1), as well as receptivity to diversity initiatives in the workplace (Study 2). In Study 1, after controlling for relevant demographic variables, we found that Openness to Experience positively predicted universal diverse orientation and pro-diversity belief, but not sensitivity to diversity. Agreeableness positively predicted all three diversity measures. In Study 2, after controlling for relevant demographic variables, Openness to Experience positively predicted universal ...


Implementing An Arts-Based Initiative Pedagogy In A Business School Creativity Course, Joseph Ruiz 2020 Mr.

Implementing An Arts-Based Initiative Pedagogy In A Business School Creativity Course, Joseph Ruiz

Creative Studies Graduate Student Master's Projects

Traditional education and training methods are not well suited to the task of equipping the new workforce. Different skills are needed to succeed in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. Arts-based initiatives provide a new model for teaching twenty-first century job skills by leveraging an emerging arts-based pedagogy as a fundamentally different approach to teaching, training, and equipping a new generation of workers, uniquely qualified to function in this new environment.

The new pedagogy is based on four arts-based processes:

  • Skills Transfer
  • Projective Technique
  • Illustration of Essence
  • Making

Has Covid-19 Impacted Price-Weight Relationships And Value Of Gain?, Elliott James Dennis 2020 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Has Covid-19 Impacted Price-Weight Relationships And Value Of Gain?, Elliott James Dennis

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

First paragraph:

In the beginning of COVID-19, much of the attention was focused on managing the redirection of meat product from food service to retail stores. This past month has keenly focused on packing plant closures due to COVID-19 cases among workers and how to manage the supply of fat cattle already ready for slaughter. Fat cattle available for slaughter either cannot get bids or bids are significantly below breakeven prices leaving feedlots with decisions to be made about marketing and placements. The April 2020 Cattle on Feed report (https://usda.library.cornell.edu/concern/publications/m326m174z) revealed March placement ...


Pre Covid-19 Market Conditions Persist & The Stocker Industry Can Dampen The Damage, Elliott James Dennis 2020 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Pre Covid-19 Market Conditions Persist & The Stocker Industry Can Dampen The Damage, Elliott James Dennis

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

First paragraph:

The effects of COVID-19 on the livestock market are well known and felt. Some effects include depressed futures and cash prices, unusual basis patterns, decreased packer bids and sale barn volume, packing plant closures, consumer hording of meat products, and shifting food service products for retail consumption. All these effects occurred as market participants grappled with everchanging government and industry policy which reduced consumer demand and resulted in bottlenecks and increasing supply gluts upstream. Simultaneously reducing demand and increasing supply always cause prices to plummet, and in the case of COVID-19 very rapidly. Some segments of the market ...


Assumptions (Mistakes) That Parents Make With Estate Plans, Allan Vyhnalek 2020 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Assumptions (Mistakes) That Parents Make With Estate Plans, Allan Vyhnalek

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

Excerpt:

The main take-home message should be that the parents: 1) have a plan and continue to revise that plan from time to time and 2) be sure to think through the unintended consequences of your plan. Hopefully, some of the common assumptions mentioned here can be put into place so that the family does stay together for decades to come.

This is not an exhaustive list of assumptions that can go awry. It is being presented as a place for family thought and discussion to start. For more information go to: http://agecon.unl.edu/succession. There are other ...


Live Cattle Basis Due To Covid-19: Deviations And Convergence, Elliott James Dennis 2020 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Live Cattle Basis Due To Covid-19: Deviations And Convergence, Elliott James Dennis

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

A Fundamental Review on Basis

Basis is defined as the cash minus futures. Cash market reflects today's supply conditions and price. Futures market reflects upcoming supply and demand conditions. If it is anticipated that there will be a period of increasing supplies, futures prices will decline to reflect that information. Likewise, periods of time with expected decreasing supplies, future prices are expected to increase.

Since cash and futures prices can move simultaneously, basis will fluctuate through time. In periods where basis becomes more positive (i.e. basis is said to be strengthening/narrowing) it implies that cash prices are ...


Cares Act 2020: Unemployment Insurance And Farmer/Ranchers, Robert Tigner 2020 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Cares Act 2020: Unemployment Insurance And Farmer/Ranchers, Robert Tigner

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

First paragraph:

Generally, unemployment insurance across the country is managed by state government. Each has different rules, with oversight by the US Department of Labor. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act made changes to the unemployment coverage for workers and appropriated funds for the changes. The act tasked the Labor Department with writing rules for the changes and it has issued an Unemployment Insurance Letter — UL No. 16-20 — that begins the rulemaking process. This guidance will then be used by Nebraska to implement the CARES Act. This article reviews what is known now with future rules ...

Debt Bondage: How Private Collection Agencies Keep The Formerly Incarcerated Tethered To The Criminal Justice System, Bryan L. Adamson 2020 Seattle University School of Law

Debt Bondage: How Private Collection Agencies Keep The Formerly Incarcerated Tethered To The Criminal Justice System, Bryan L. Adamson

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

This Article examines the constitutionality of statutes which allow courts to transfer outstanding legal financial obligations to private debt collection agencies. In Washington State, the clerk of courts can transfer the legal financial obligation of a formerly incarcerated person if he or she is only thirty days late making a payment. Upon transfer, the debt collection agencies can assess a “collection fee” of up to 50% of the first $100.000 of the unpaid legal financial obligation, and up to 35% of the unpaid debt over $100,000. This fee becomes part of the LFO debt imposed at sentencing, and ...
