Compensation Across Executive Labor Markets: What Can We Learn From Cross-Listed Firms?, Colette Southam, Stephen Sapp 2009 Selected Works

Compensation Across Executive Labor Markets: What Can We Learn From Cross-Listed Firms?, Colette Southam, Stephen Sapp

Colette Southam

There is wide consensus that chief executive officers (CEOs) of US firms earn significantly more than their Canadian counterparts. Using a matched sample, we find that the majority of this difference is due to US CEOs earning 50% more than CEOs of Canadian non-cross-listed firms. We find no such ‘‘US premium’’ for Canadian cross-listed firms, because the use of options allows the cross-listed firms to keep pace with their neighbors to the south. While firms that list only in Canada compete in the labor market defined by their national boundary, crosslisted firms appear to be competing directly with their US …

Designing And Delivering Compelling Experiences: Insights From The 2008 Democratic National Convention, Sudhir Kale, Robin Pentecost, Natalina Zlatevska

Sudhir H. Kale

Purpose – Joseph Pine and Jim Gilmore coined the term “experience economy” to describe a paradigm shift in consumption. To survive in this new economy, businesses must provide customers with memorable consumption experiences. The purpose of this paper is to suggest eight ingredients that need to be incorporated into a compelling experience. Commercial experience providers, not-for-profit organizations, and political entities stand to benefit by integrating these elements in the experiences they provide to their targeted constituencies.

Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative phenomenological case study approach is employed using the 2008 Democratic National Convention as the referent for dissemination of a compelling …


Psychological Contracts And Counterproductive Work Behaviors: Employee Responses To Transactional And Relational Breach, Jaclyn Jensen 2009 DePaul University

Psychological Contracts And Counterproductive Work Behaviors: Employee Responses To Transactional And Relational Breach, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Purpose: This study extends research on counterproductive work behavior (CWB) by examining the psychological contract breaches that trigger employee CWB. Specifically, we explored the relationship between transactional and relational contract breach and five forms of CWB (abuse, production deviance, sabotage, theft, withdrawal). Further, we considered the role of situational and individual factors that mitigate CWB engagement and examined the moderating effects of organizational policies meant to deter CWB and personality (conscientiousness, agreeableness, and emotional stability).

Design/methodology/approach: Three hundred fifty-seven employees responded to surveys of transactional and relational psychological contract breach, CWB, knowledge of organizational policies, and personality. Relationships were examined …

Commercial Real Estate Lending Concentrations: New Evidence, Elisabeta Pana 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

Commercial Real Estate Lending Concentrations: New Evidence, Elisabeta Pana

Elisabeta Pana

This study documents the management of risk used by small banks with commercial real estate lending concentrations prior to the 2007-2009 financial crisis. We show that banks with commercial real estate concentrations traded interest rate risk for credit risk. The trade-off is accompanied by a higher leverage and liquidity risk. Our findings support the argument advanced by policymakers and academic researchers that the increased scrutiny over banks’ lending standards and risk management practices is justified.


Commercial Real Estate Concentrations: Evidence On The Survival Of Small Banks, Elisabeta Pana 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

Commercial Real Estate Concentrations: Evidence On The Survival Of Small Banks, Elisabeta Pana

Elisabeta Pana

This study examines the survival of small banks with commercial real estate concentrations over the 2006-2009 period. Using data on 4646 banks, I document that commercial real estate loan concentrations increase the hazard of disappearance. The analysis of bank-specific factors reveals that bank capitalization, liquidity, and asset quality play a significant role on bank survival. I also find evidence that small banks in the Pacific Southwest and South Atlantic regions are less likely to survive as separate entities.

S&P Etfs: Arbitrage Opportunities And Market Forecasting, Steven Dolvin 2009 Butler University

S&P Etfs: Arbitrage Opportunities And Market Forecasting, Steven Dolvin

Steven D. Dolvin

The article examines the pricing differences between two S&P 500 ETFs (ticker symbols SPY and IVV) and the underlying stock index. The author finds that, on average, both ETFs trade at a premium relative to the S&P 500; however, the level of the daily premium (and, on occasion, discount) varies between the two securities, which creates the opportunity for arbitrage. Since the passage of Regulation NMS in mid-2005, the pricing differences, as expected, have declined, implying that any current/future arbitrage opportunity will be confined to periods of high market volatility, such as 2008. Beyond issues related to arbitrage, the author …

The Edge Of Legitimacy: Voluntary Social And Environmental Reporting In Rothmans' 1956-1999 Annual Reports, Matthew Tilling, Carol Tilt

Matthew Tilling


Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the voluntary social and environmental
disclosures made in the annual reports of Rothmans Ltd between the years of 1955 and 1999. The first
part of the paper focuses on defining legitimacy theory as it has been used in accounting research,
extending the current model of legitimacy that predominates, and discussing the potential of a
resource-based approach to testing the theory.
Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative and quantitative approach to analysing annual
report disclosures is presented, and this is one of the few studies to operationalise the variables under
study as measures …


Placing William Forster Lloyd In Context, Gregory Moore, Michael White 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Placing William Forster Lloyd In Context, Gregory Moore, Michael White

Gregory Moore

There are few historical records extant relating to William Forster Lloyd
(1794–1852). It is known that he was the second surviving son of Thomas
Lloyd, who was a rector of Aston-sub-Edge, Gloucestershire, but who
actually resided at various villages immediately outside West Wycombe,
Buckinghamshire, before becoming a private tutor of some note (and some
calling prior to the rise of the public schools) at nearby Peterley House,
Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. William F. Lloyd’s elder brother was
Charles Lloyd (1784–1829), a tutor in mathematics at Christ Church,
Oxford, and, through his influence over Sir Robert Peel (who he prepared
for exams), …


Placing Donald Winch In Context: An Essay On Wealth And Life [Book Review], Gregory Moore 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Placing Donald Winch In Context: An Essay On Wealth And Life [Book Review], Gregory Moore

Gregory Moore

Donald Winch is one of the leading historians of ideas of the last half century and
hence, given the Australian tradition of not deferring to individuals of high
standing, it is incumbent upon me to treat both him and his most recent publication,
Wealth and Life, roughly. He is an Englishman to boot. Unfortunately this critical,
if not disrespectful, Antipodean approach is a slightly taxing line to adopt in this
particular case due to the fact that Wealth and Life is, in many ways but not in all
ways, a valuable intellectual product. Indeed, unlike many young scholars who …

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, saurabh gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber 2009 University of North Florida

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber

Saurabh Gupta

End-User Training (EUT) has enjoyed a rich tradition of research in Information Systems. However, with the growing pace of change in technology and the dynamic nature of business, organizations are spending an increasing amount of money on end-user training. Training methods are also changing with little research to support new approaches. Thus, extensive research is required in the future. To be credible, end-user training research should preserve and build upon the significant literature that exists, both in IS and Education. This paper provides a review of EUT literature focusing on training methods. It summarizes research findings, while pointing out key …

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson 2009 Griffith University

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

This conceptual paper proposes an expanded relationship service-profit chain as a business success model based on blending human resource management and marketing within the relationship marketing framework. The major contribution of the paper is the extension of thought and usage of the service-profit chain through the super-imposition of a relationship building approach to the provision of service. The proposed model draws on the original service-profit chain, which is further enhanced through the addition of a relationship marketing orientation guiding business culture and combining internal marketing and human resource management activities to best implement an updated service-profit chain. The enhanced relationship …
