How Tolerable Is Delay? Consumers' Evaluations Of Internet Web Sites After Waiting, Benedict G.C Dellaert, Barbara E. Kahn Dec 1998

How Tolerable Is Delay? Consumers' Evaluations Of Internet Web Sites After Waiting, Benedict G.C Dellaert, Barbara E. Kahn

Marketing Papers

The effect of waiting times on consumers’ retrospective evaluations of internet web sites is investigated in four computer-based experiments. Results show that waiting can, but does not always, negatively affect evaluations of web sites. They also show that the potential negative effects of waiting can be neutralized by effectively managing waiting experiences. A conceptual framework and formal random utility model are introduced.


The Shareholder Primacy Norm, D. Gordon Smith Dec 1998

The Shareholder Primacy Norm, D. Gordon Smith

Faculty Scholarship

Corporate directors have a fiduciary duty to make decisions in the best interests of the shareholders. This aspect of fiduciary duty is often called the shareholder primacy norm. Legal scholars generally assume that the shareholder primacy norm is a major factor considered by boards of directors of publicly traded corporations in making ordinary business decisions and that changing the shareholder primacy norm would have an effect on the substance of those decisions. This Article challenges this view and argues that the shareholder primacy norm was never equipped to mediate conflicts between shareholders and nonshareholder constituencies of a corporation. The origins …

The Bcs, Fairness, And The Money, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Everyone now knows what the "BS" in the "BCS" stands for but there seems to be some doubt remaining about the "C." Some suggest "computer," some say "compound," some say it is a redundant statement of the "S." Whatever it is, several other things are now clear.

Assessing Nafta - Part Ii: The Impact Of Nafta On Jobs, Wages, And Income Inequality, Victoria Hottenrott, Stephen Blank Dec 1998

Assessing Nafta - Part Ii: The Impact Of Nafta On Jobs, Wages, And Income Inequality, Victoria Hottenrott, Stephen Blank

Faculty Working Papers

These three Working Papers look at NAFTA after four years. In Part I, the authors examine NAFTA's impact on trade and investment in North America; in Part II, its impact on jobs and employment; and in Part III, its impact on environmental issues. They conclude that NAFTA is an important agreement that, together with the Uruguay Round accord, will influence patterns of trade and investment in the future. To date, NAFTA has had only a modest direct impact on patterns of trade, investment, jobs, and income. NAFTA side agreements have led to changes in environmental protection policy and in the …


Gender Differences In Tourism Destination: Implications For Tourism Marketers, Marie Ryan, Nadine Henley, Geoffery Soutar Dec 1998

Gender Differences In Tourism Destination: Implications For Tourism Marketers, Marie Ryan, Nadine Henley, Geoffery Soutar

School of Marketing, Tourism and Leisure Publications

This paper examines the criteria that males and females use to make tourism destination choices and whether such differences result in different destination preferences. Males and females may apply different criteria to make tourism destination choices. Respondents were asked to rank eight popular WA holiday destinations, using twelve attributes. Comparisons between males and females were conducted using t-tests, perceptual mapping and external preference analysis. Females rated each attribute consistently more important than males and, overall, consistently high. This finding is interpreted with reference to Meyers- Levy’s (1986) selectivity hypothesis and related to other research in the marketing context on information …


Accounting Expertise And Ill-Structured Problems: Cognitive Reasoning Abilities And Performance In Business Valuation Tasks, Wray Bradley Dec 1998

Accounting Expertise And Ill-Structured Problems: Cognitive Reasoning Abilities And Performance In Business Valuation Tasks, Wray Bradley

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This study investigates the linkage between cognitive reasoning abilities and performance in ill-structured tasks. Prior accounting research shows that the broad construct known as general problem-solving ability is directly related to performance in ill-structured audit tasks (Libby and Tan 1994). General problem-solving ability has been defined as having sub-components comprised of verbal, quantitative, memory, and cognitive reasoning abilities (Libby 1995). Most prior accounting studies have either controlled for performance differences associated with the subcomponent abilities or have just ignored them. This has created a gap in behavioral accounting research (Shanteau 1995; Bouwman and Bradley 1997). This study seeks to partially …


Exploiting The Installed Base Using Cross-Merchandising And Category Destination Programs, Xavier Drèze, Stephen J. Hoch Dec 1998

Exploiting The Installed Base Using Cross-Merchandising And Category Destination Programs, Xavier Drèze, Stephen J. Hoch

Marketing Papers

We investigate two ways to increase sales and customer loyalty by taking advantage of a store's installed base of current customers. We propose a classification of products into two types. Products of Type 1 are products for which consumers have a loyalty to a specific retailer and, as far as possible, always shop at that retailer for these products. The other products (Type 2) are not associated with any retailer and are bought at whichever retailer consumers happen to shop when they plan or remember to buy the product. With this in mind, we test the potential of two marketing …

Auditor Concentration Of Listed Public Companies On International Stock Exchanges, Ramesh Narasimhan, Shifei Chung

Department of Accounting and Finance Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

The Canadian and London stock exchanges are chosen as representatives of the North American and European markets, while the Hong Kong and Singapore exchanges represent the newly developed Asia Pacific markets. Public accounting firms have benefited from the globalisation trends by expanding their own markets. The reason frequently mentioned for the mergers of the Big 8 accounting firms to form the Big 6 is that they want to increase their international presence and be in a …
