Fixed Revenue Auctions: Theory And Behavior, Bart Wilson, Cary Deck Aug 2014

Fixed Revenue Auctions: Theory And Behavior, Bart Wilson, Cary Deck

Bart J Wilson

In this paper, we study auctions in which the revenue is fixed but the quantity is determined by the auction mechanism. Specifically, we investigate the theory and behavior of English quantity clock, Dutch quantity clock, last-quantity sealed bid, and penultimate-quantity sealed bid auctions. For theoretically equivalent fixed quantity and fixed revenue auctions, we find that fixed revenue auctions are robust to all the previously observed empirical regularities in fixed quantity auctions.

Ssrn As An Initial Revolution In Academic Knowledge Aggregation And Dissemination, David Bray, Sascha Vitzthum, Benn Konsynski Jan 2010

Ssrn As An Initial Revolution In Academic Knowledge Aggregation And Dissemination, David Bray, Sascha Vitzthum, Benn Konsynski

Sascha Vitzthum

Within this paper we consider our results of using the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) over a period of 18 months to distribute our working papers to the research community. Our experiences have been quite positive, with SSRN serving as a platform both to inform our colleagues about our research as well as inform us about related research (through email and telephoned conversations of colleagues who discovered our paper on SSRN). We then discuss potential future directions for SSRN to consider, and how SSRN might well represent an initial revolution in 21st century academic knowledge aggregation and dissemination. Our paper ...


Creating Effective Broadband Network Regulation, Daniel L. Brenner Dec 2008

Creating Effective Broadband Network Regulation, Daniel L. Brenner

Daniel L. Brenner

ABSTRACT: The Internet is central to the business and pastimes of Americans. Calls for increased regulation are ongoing, inevitable, and often justified. But calls for “network neutrality” or “nondiscrimination” assume with little hesitation federal agency competence to give predictable and accurate meaning to these terms and create regulations to implement them. This article’s chief contribution to Internet policy debate is to focus attention on the likelihood of successful FCC Internet regulation -- a key assumption of some advocates. The article analyzes three characteristics that hobble the FCC, the likeliest federal agency to provide prescriptive rules. First, the record for the ...


Exploring Human Rights Implications Of Microfinance Initiatives, Rebecca Farrar Dec 2008

Exploring Human Rights Implications Of Microfinance Initiatives, Rebecca Farrar

Abstract for Article: Exploring the Human Rights Implications of Microfinance Initiatives by Rebecca Farrar

Microfinance and microcredit (“MFI”) programs have been advanced as a way to make the world a better place. These programs involve making small loans to people who would otherwise be unable to borrow money to facilitate them starting their own businesses: frequently, the programs focus on women borrowers in developing countries. Muhammad Yunus of the Grameen Bank says microfinance and microcredit programs can literally end world poverty.

This Article explores MFI from several perspectives, with particular emphasis on human rights issues. The emphasis of MFI programs ...

Is Zina Bil Jabr A Hadd, Taz‛Ir Or Siyasa Offence?: A Reappraisal Of The Protection Of Women Act 2006 In Pakistan”, Muhammad Munir Dr.

Dr. Muhammad Munir

This article briefly discusses the various laws passed by the regime of General Musharraf (1999-2008) to relieve the plight of helpless women in Pakistan and analyses the Protection of Women Act, 2006 from a legal, rather than from a political or emotional perspective. It scrutinizes the opinions of leading 'ulama, such as Justice (R) Taqi 'Uthmani, Mufti Muneebur Rahman, Moulana 'Abdul Malik, and Hasan Madani. The position of women rights' groups about the said law is discussed; the claim of the then government that the Act is compatible with the Qur'an and the Sunnah is examined; the various changes ...


Supreme Court’S Role Vis A Vis Indian Arbitration And Conciliation Act, 1996, Dev Chopra Dec 2008

Supreme Court’S Role Vis A Vis Indian Arbitration And Conciliation Act, 1996, Dev Chopra

dev chopra

This article examines some aspects of the growth of judicial law making by the Supreme Court in the last twelve years of the working of the Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. It also examines the negative role of the Supreme Court in taking the law backward thus preventing the growth of international trade and commerce. It also shows that just as politicians and bureaucrats do not give up power, judges are no exception.

Electronic Commerce And Legal Protection For Consumers In Spain, Juan-Antonio Mondejar-Jimenez, Mª Angeles Zurilla-Cariñana, Jose Mondejar-Jimenez

Juan-Antonio Mondejar-Jimenez

Electronic commerce is becoming increasingly common at international level. It is defined as “doing business electronically across the extended enterprise”, which includes all forms of business, administrative transactions and information exchanges in which any type of information or communication technology is used. It has also been defined as “the form of commerce that by using the services and links provided in electronic documents in the Internet, allows the customer to query, select and purchase a distributor's offer using a device that is connected to the Internet, in real time and at any time or place”. In Spain, the Information ...

How Mandatory Are Mandatory Minimums? How Judges Can Avoid Imposing Mandatory Minimum Sentences, Nathan A. Greenblatt Dec 2008

How Mandatory Are Mandatory Minimums? How Judges Can Avoid Imposing Mandatory Minimum Sentences, Nathan A. Greenblatt

Nathan A Greenblatt

Mandatory minimum sentences are anathema to judges due to, it is commonly said, judges’ “utter lack of power to do anything for the exceptional defendants that move them.” In the case of Weldon Angelos, for example, U.S. District Judge Paul Cassell lamented that sentencing Mr. Angelos to 55 years in prison “is unjust, cruel, and even irrational. [The court] reluctantly concludes that it has no choice.” The Judicial Conference has consistently opposed mandatory minimum sentences for more than 50 years, because it, too, has concluded that mandatory sentences give judges no choice in sentencing. Indeed, the U.S. Sentencing ...
