  • The ownership of listed companies in East Asia is typically concentrated in the hands of large shareholders. This concentrated control is achieved through complicated ownership arrangements, i.e., stock pyramids and cross-shareholdings.3 In this section, we discuss the forces that shape the ownership structure.

  • For the investor types believing that active managers can generate alphas, we nd that the ability to identify superior performing funds is further improved, albeit slightly, by augmenting the four-factor model with country indices, even if these indices represent non-priced factors, consis- tent with Pastor and Stambaugh (2002a).

  • The high-technology answer seemed to lie in the creation of new manufacturing sectors, which—by virtue of high growth and rising productivity—might restore the promise of high-wage, stable employment. Such sectors were emerging in Silicon Valley and other centers that increasingly looked to a combination of electronics and information as their stock in trade.

  • Third, we find that after accounting for luck, the percentage of funds with negative alphas in the population is approximately equal to 20% across all categories, while the proportion of funds with positive performance is much lower (it amounts to 1.9% of all funds in the population). It implies that the performance of the industry as a whole is not so bad because about 80% of the funds generate a performance sufficiently high to cover their expenses. The negative average performance documented in past studies is not due to the majority of funds but is caused by 20% of the funds....

Thus, it provides an out-of-sample test for the theories and empirical models so far established.

  • In line with this, TSC disagrees with theories that model cognition on conscious reasoning, as reflecting the ways thought processes are conceptu- alised in language. Instead, TSC states that cognition is ‘active’ in the sense that cognitive processes emerge in concrete situations of physical action and socio-cultural practices. In integrating conation and affect, cognition is driven by, on the one hand, the agent’s current needs and motivation and, on the other, the contingent, contextual elements that support immediate action.

  • The addition to gasoline of a lead-containing compound called tetraethyllead was an attempt to enhance engine performance. The use of this compound was phased out when it was found to destroy the effectiveness of the catalytic converter (described below) which is used to reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and NOx. Tetraethyllead is just one member of a group of compounds, called octane boosters, which can be added to gasoline to increase its octane number. Other compounds that have been used as octane enhancers over the years include methanol (CH3OH) and ethanol (C2H5OH).
