  • The greatest shift in consumer purchase behavior over the past generation has been from table wines to quality wines, particularly in traditional wine drinking countries. Relatively few people consume wine. In the United States 40 to 45 percent of the adult population does not drink any alcoholic beverages. Of the remainder, less than 20 percent are “regular” wine drinkers, and they account for most of the wine consumption. The occasional wine drinker, an additional 40 percent of the remainder, tends to like wine and might buy more of it if persuaded to do so (Moulton...

Consequently a strong increase in the international demand for short-fiber pulp is expected2 .

  • PSI President and CEO Karl Hofmann recalls: “In just over 10 years, the YouthAIDS platform grew into a brand that drove attention and resources for HIV prevention and education. PSI, at that time, was a highly successful implementing organization but traveled below the radar with little brand awareness except among a small set of development insiders.

  • This essay explores one manifestation of the popular historicization of “Hollywood,” the historical film clip montages created—mostly—by former trailer producer Chuck Workman for the Academy Awards telecasts produced by Gil Cates during the 1990s. These brief pieces of (televised) film about film history participated strongly in the reconfiguring and marketing of the cinematic past in the popular imaginary during the nineties, pivotal years in the globalization of hegemonic American film culture.

  • Nevertheless, it is a widespread assumption that end-of-pipe technologies still domi- nate investment decisions in firms. This is because there has been exceptionally little empiri- cal analysis directed to the determinants of the use of specific types of abatement measures - principally because of the paucity of available data. On the basis of a unique facility-level data set based on a recent survey covering seven OECD countries (Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Norway, and the U.S.) we find a clear dominance of cleaner production in these countries: Surprisingly, 76.

  • By estimating the default jump risk premium, this paper essentially tests the assumptions underlying the conditional diversification hypothesis of JLY (2001). These authors prove that, if default jumps are conditionally independent across firms and if the economy contains an infinite number of bonds, default jump risk cannot be priced. Intuitively, in this case the default jump risk can be fully diversified. Our results indicate that default jumps are not conditionally independent across firms and/or that not enough corporate bonds are traded to fully diversify default jump risk.

  • Bernanke and Gertler (1989) focus on the investment decision of rms. There is asymmetric information between lenders and entrepreneurs: while entrepreneurs know the protability of their investment projects, lenders must pay an auditing cost to observe the project's return.

  • To support its operations, DOD performs an assortment of interrelated and interdependent business functions, such as logistics, procurement, health care, and financial management. As we have previously reported, the DOD systems environment that supports these business functions has been overly complex, decentralized, and error prone, characterized by (1) little standardization across the department, (2) multiple systems performing the same tasks and storing the same data, and (3) the need for data to be entered manually into multiple systems.

  • It has been suggested that executives seek higher salaries in comparison to other executives, as a means of recognizing com- parative ability or performance. Th at is, high salary is a means of recognizing the status of the executive amongst their executive peers.
