  • Official policies for SME development can be evaluated against their impact upon enterprise culture, start-up, survival and growth of SMEs, and stakeholder empathy. Each of these criteria feeds off the others. Enterprise culture will be strong where there are high rates of SME growth. Where SMEs are dominant features in the local and regional economic and social environment, stakeholders themselves will be influenced and will adjust their behaviour accordingly. This template of culture and business and stakeholder development may be used in very different country contexts.

  • This paper designs a novel lexical hub to disambiguate word sense, using both syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations of words. It only employs the semantic network of WordNet to calculate word similarity, and the Edinburgh Association Thesaurus (EAT) to transform contextual space for computing syntagmatic and other domain relations with the target word. Without any back-off policy the result on the English lexical sample of SENSEVAL-21 shows that lexical cohesion based on edge-counting techniques is a good way of unsupervisedly disambiguating senses. ...

  • Thus, after buying into winning funds, investors unwittingly benefit from momentum returns on winning stocks. To test this reasoning, Sapp and Tiwari calculate abnormal performance following money f lows with and without accounting for the momentum factor, and find that inclusion of the momentum factor in the performance evaluation proce- dure eliminates outperformance of high f low funds. In addition, they show that investors are not deliberate in seeking to benefit from stock-level momentum: More popular funds do not have higher exposure to themomentumfactor at the time they are selected.

  • We obtain our list of SRI funds from the Social Investment Forum's (SIF) reports published in 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, and 2005. 3 Each report contains comprehensive information about SRI in the US for both the publication year and the preceding one. In particular, the reports contain a list of SRI mutual funds compiled by SIF. To construct this list SIF employs a direct survey methodology and gathers information from third parties. A fund is included in the SIF list if it utilizes one or more social or environmental criteria as part of a formal investment policy. 4 To be included in...

  • This book is an introduction to game theory from a mathematical perspective. It is intended to be a first course for undergraduate students of mathematics, but I also hope that it will contain something of interest to advanced students or researchers in biology and economics who often encounter the basics of game theory informally via relevant applications. In view of the intended audience, the examples used in this book are generally abstract problems so that the reader is not forced to learn a great deal of a subject – either biology or economics – that may be unfamiliar.

  • Even if socially responsible investment does not impose a cost on SRI fund investors in terms of reduced before-fee financial performance, these investors could still pay an explicit price for their funds' social responsibility in the form of higher fees. Indeed, there are reasons to expect fees charged by SRI funds to be higher. First, some SRI funds actively engage with the firms in which they invest to encourage them to pursue socially responsible policies. The costs of such active monitoring may be partly passed on to investors in the form of higher expenses.

  • Finally, the requirements that a fund has to fulfill in order to be included in the SIF's listing of SRI funds are not stringent. For example, a fund could be on the list just by having a formal policy of excluding companies with interests in the tobacco business. If the constraints that SRI (as defined in our data set) imposes on fund managers are minor, the performance of SRI mutual funds should not be expected to be lower than that of conventional funds. It is important to highlight that the estimated performance differences between SRI and conventional funds cannot...

  • We discuss the use of social networks in implementing viral marketing strategies. While influence maximization has been studied in this context (see Chapter 24 of [10]), we study revenue maximization, arguably, a more natural objective. In our model, a buyer’s decision to buy an item is influenced by the set of other buyers that own the item and the price at which the item is offered. We focus on algorithmic question of finding revenue maximizing marketing strategies. When the buyers are completely symmetric, we can find the optimal marketing strategy in polynomial time.
