Excesses Of The Super Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau 2010 University of Central Florida

Excesses Of The Super Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

From its modest beginnings in 1966 at the AFL-NFL Championship Game in Los Angeles down to Super Bowl XLIV, it has become increasingly apparent that Super Sunday has grown exponentially and in the process has become a bloated monster. Over the past quarter century or more Super Sunday has illustrated the ability of a sporting event to offer a distorted and exaggerated version of social reality and social values in America and the Super Bowl has done this on a grand, glorious, and obscene scale.

Bringing To Heel The Elephants In The Economy: The Case For Ending “Too Big To Fail”, Ann Graham 2010 Texas Tech University School of Law

Bringing To Heel The Elephants In The Economy: The Case For Ending “Too Big To Fail”, Ann Graham

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “Financial institutions labeled “Too Big To Fail” (TBTF) are those whose insolvency could shake the foundations of the U.S. financial system and our economy. The term “too big to fail” became part of our popular vocabulary in the wake of federal bank regulatory intervention to prevent the failure of Continental Illinois National Bank in 1984. After the banking and savings-and-loan crisis of the 1980s, the pros and cons of the TBTF policy were extensively debated. Despite Congressional efforts to limit application of TBTF, the doctrine has returned with renewed vigor during the current crisis. Responding on an ad ...


Controlling Patent Prosecution History, Thomas G. Field Jr. 2010 Franklin Pierce Law Center, Concord, NH

Controlling Patent Prosecution History, Thomas G. Field Jr.

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “One of the most salient effects of patent prosecution history arises in the context of the doctrine of equivalents. Under that doctrine, although patent claims may be found to be broader than their literal scope, territory surrendered during prosecution cannot be encompassed as equivalent. Nor can territory forfeited by initial failure to claim be captured under the doctrine of equivalents. Most attorneys who prosecute applications are apt to be aware of such problems and to take measures to avoid them.”

Ohs In China-Work In Progress, Rowan Cahill, Di Kelly 2010 University of Wollongong

Ohs In China-Work In Progress, Rowan Cahill, Di Kelly

Rowan Cahill

This article explores the barriers and challenges to effective implementation of occupational health and safety regulation (OHS), and occupational exposure limits (OELs) in China in order to identify the lessons for social science scholars and activists. It finds that formal labour legislation, including occupational health and safety legislation is relatively extensive, but rarely effectively realised. This has partly been because of the pace of political and economic transformation in China. As a result, the soft infrastructure of skills and knowledge necessary for an active, effective and genuinely protective OHS system are inchoate, and often, as OHS awareness has grown, firms ...


In Defense Of Fair Value: Weighing The Evidence On Earnings Management And Asset Securitizations, Mary Barth, Daniel J. Taylor 2010 University of Pennsylvania

In Defense Of Fair Value: Weighing The Evidence On Earnings Management And Asset Securitizations, Mary Barth, Daniel J. Taylor

Accounting Papers

Dechow, Myers, and Shakespeare (DMS, 2009) find a negative relation between income from securitization activities and income from non-securitization activities. DMS interprets this finding as indicating that managers use the flexibility available in fair value accounting rules to smooth earnings. We clarify the role of fair value in accounting for asset securitizations, discuss alternative explanations for the evidence presented in DMS, and offer suggestions for future research. We caution against inferring the desirability of any particular accounting method from earnings management research.


How Does Internal Control Regulation Affect Financial Reporting?, Jennifer M. Altamuro, Anne Beatty 2010 University of Pennsylvania

How Does Internal Control Regulation Affect Financial Reporting?, Jennifer M. Altamuro, Anne Beatty

Accounting Papers

Internal control regulation effectiveness remains controversial given the recent financial crisis. To address this issue we examine the financial reporting effects of the Federal Depository Insurance Corporation Improvement Act (FDICIA) internal control provisions. Exemptions from these provisions for banks with assets under $500 million and for non-US banks provides two unaffected control samples. Our difference-in-differences method suggests that FDICIA-mandated internal control requirements increased loan-loss provision validity, earnings persistence and cash-flow predictability and reduced benchmark-beating and accounting conservatism for affected versus unaffected banks. More pronounced effects in interim versus fourth quarters suggest that greater auditor presence substitutes for internal control regulation.


Owning Versus Leasing: Do Courts Matter?, Pablo Casas-Arce, Albert Saiz 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Owning Versus Leasing: Do Courts Matter?, Pablo Casas-Arce, Albert Saiz

Real Estate Papers

We develop a legal contract enforcement theory of the own versus lease decision. The allocation of ownership rights will minimize enforcement costs when the legal system is inefficient. In particular, when legal enforcement of contracts is costly, there will be a shift from arrangements that rely on such enforcement (such as a rental agreement) toward other forms that do not (such as direct ownership). We then test this prediction and show that costly enforcement of rental contracts hampers the development of the rental housing market in a cross-section of countries. We argue that this association is not the result of ...


Estimating Agglomeration Economies With History, Geology, And Worker Effects, Pierre-Philippe Combes, Gilles Duranton, Laurent Gobillon, Sébastien Roux 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Estimating Agglomeration Economies With History, Geology, And Worker Effects, Pierre-Philippe Combes, Gilles Duranton, Laurent Gobillon, Sébastien Roux

Real Estate Papers

Does productivity increase with density? We revisit the issue using French wage and TFP data. To deal with the ‘endogenous quantity of labour bias (i.e., urban agglomeration is consequence of high local productivity rather than a cause), we take an instrumental variable approach and introduce a new set of geological instruments in addition to standard historical instruments. To deal with the ‘endogenous quality of labour bias (i.e., cities attract skilled workers so that the effects of skills and urban agglomeration are confounded), we take a worker fixed-effect approach with wage data. We find modest evidence about the endogenous ...


Feedback Between Real Estate And Urban Economics, Todd Sinai 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Feedback Between Real Estate And Urban Economics, Todd Sinai

Real Estate Papers

This paper considers the implications of increasing land supply constraints in the United States on urban demand. First, because shifts in demand are now capitalized more into the price of land, house prices in some metropolitan areas have grown increasingly unaffordable to typical households. This might have an effect on the fundamental character of such cities. Second, the effect of home owners’ financial interests as landowners on their decisions about what regulations or investments in their communities to support may become stronger. Third, researchers may now be able to better use land prices to make inferences about urban demand. However ...


Do School Entry Laws Affect Educational Attainment And Labor Market Outcomes?, Carlos Dobkin, Fernando V. Ferreira 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Do School Entry Laws Affect Educational Attainment And Labor Market Outcomes?, Carlos Dobkin, Fernando V. Ferreira

Real Estate Papers

Age based school entry laws force parents and educators to consider an important tradeoff: though students who are the youngest in their school cohort typically have poorer academic performance, on average, they have slightly higher educational attainment. In this paper we document that for a large cohort of California and Texas natives the school entry laws increased educational attainment of students who enter school early, but also lowered their academic performance while in school. However, we find no evidence that the age at which children enter school effects job market outcomes, such as wages or the probability of employment. This ...


Securing The Containerized Supply Chain: Analysis Of Government Incentives For Private Investment, Nitin Bakshi, Noah Gans 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Securing The Containerized Supply Chain: Analysis Of Government Incentives For Private Investment, Nitin Bakshi, Noah Gans

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

To mitigate the threat that terrorists smuggle weapons of mass destruction into the United States through maritime containers, the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) inspects containers upon entry to domestic ports. Inspection-driven congestion is costly, and CBP provides incentives to firms to improve security upstream in the supply chain, thereby reducing the inspection burden at U.S. ports. We perform an economic analysis of this incentive program, called Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), modeling in a game-theoretic framework the strategic interaction between CBP, trading firms, and terrorists. Our equilibrium results highlight the possibility that a properly ...
