• Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - Economic Cycle and Growth, grade: 1, VU University Amsterdam , language: English, abstract: This study examines the lead-lag patterns on the European markets between returns on portfolios sorted by size. Additionally, we test for two novel factors to explain lead-lag effects - size distribution and market efficiency. A chief separation between countries is established based on stock market development, and lead-lag structures are analyzed in the context of this partition. Country-by-country regressions are employed to prove the leading role of large company returns over small company returns. A measure of the lead-lag effect is developed in the form of the speed of adjustment of small firm returns to large firm returns. A pooled regression is performed in order to shed light over additional determinant factors of lead-lag patterns and a distinct size of lead-lag effects in emerging and advanced economies. Our results show that size is the underlying determinant of large portfolios leading small ones, while there is only partial support to validate that market inefficiencies can cause lead-lag effects. Also, we find that size heterogeneity widens lead-lag effects in developed markets.

  • The Sleeping Beauty is the grandest of all the surviving 19th-century ballets and the supreme achievement of the imperial Russian ballet. First performed in 1890 at the Maryinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, the ballet has been preserved in continuous performance by the company that created it. The way in which the heirs of the old imperial ballet continue to honour the choreographic genius of Marius Petipa and the glories of Tchaikovskys score, means that The Sleeping Beauty is ideally to be seen in the interpretation of the Kirov Ballet whose performance in the companys 200th year in 1982 was captured in this presentation. Leading the cast is Irina Kolpakova, recognised as one of the former Soviet Unions greatest ballerinas and justly celebrated throughout the world for the beauty and clarity of her classic dancing in the role of Princess Aurora.

  • Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - Other, grade: 2,0, Free University of Berlin (Institute Director and Head of Economics Department John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies), language: English, abstract: This paper analyses macroeconomic imbalances within fixed exchange rate systems as the European Monetary Union. The leading question is explaining why during the years after the financial crisis of 2007, Institutions such as the European Commission and the IMF made policy recommendations aimed at shifting production resources from the non-tradable to the tradable sector; especially in countries with large current account imbalances and low competitiveness.Inferring that not accomplishing such a reallocation of production resources will yield a major 'pain of adjustment', the paper investigates the role of the non-tradable sector size in the European adjustment process. The mentioned 'pain of adjustment' plays a central role and is understood as the time and/or the contraction required for reaching a certain level of external balance in terms of social costs, most notably unemployment.The conclusions are based on a graphical modification of Krugman and Obstfeld's (2006) model conceived for explaining the rigidities of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates and suggest that deficit countries with underemployment attempting to reach external and internal balance can reduce the 'pain of adjustment' ...

  • Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2 (Second Class), University of Sussex (SPRU - Science and Technology Policy Research), course: International Management, language: English, abstract: The research plans to show the importance of the leadership role of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in Managing Innovation. This has also attracted the focus of researchers analysing leadership styles and its relation to innovation. Innovation is a transition from traditional methods to modern ways of providing products, services, processes, business models and much more. However, factors that have continuously kept innovation ever-increasing have not yet been clearly identified. Effectively, CEOs have their own role in the process of managing innovation allowing, initiating and monitoring the processes, products, services offered by public or private sectors. Therefore, this dissertation plans to compare the CEOs leadership role in two leading online world companies Yahoo and Google that are rapidly facing the growing demands for modernisation of their offerings. The comparison will attempt to test a hypothesis that relates Yahoo and Google CEOs' role in selection of strategy, acquisitions and management style, and its effect in innovation outcomes.

  • Fire plays a key role in Earth system processes. Wildfires influence the carbon cycle and the nutrient balance of our planet, and may even play a role in regulating the oxygen content of our atmosphere. The evolutionary history of plants has been intimately tied to fire and this in part explains the distribution of our ecosystems and their ability to withstand the effects of natural fires today. Fire Phenomena and the Earth System brings together the various subdisciplines within fire science to provide a synthesis of our understanding of the role of wildfire in the Earth system. The book shows how knowledge of fire phenomena and the nature of combustion of natural fuels can be used to understand modern wildfires, interpret fire events in the geological record and to understand the role of fire in a variety of Earth system processes. By bringing together chapters written by leading international researchers from a range of geological, environmental, chemical and engineering disciplines, the book will stimulate the exchange of ideas and knowledge across these subject areas. Fire Phenomena and the Earth System provides a truly interdisciplinary guide that can inform us about Earth’s past, present and beyond. Readership: Advanced students and researchers across a wide range of earth, environmental and life sciences, including biogeochemistry, paleoclimatology, atmospheric science, palaeontology and paleoecology, combustion science, ecology and forestry.

In Anticipating Municipal Parks, Don Johnson contests the accepted understanding that Colonel William Light was the sole architect of the city of Adelaide, revealing the often-ignored role of Light's Deputy Surveyor, George Strickland Kingston.Johnson also investigates the role and influence of John Arthur Roebuck and John Claudius Loudon on the course of town-planning theory, and the political and theoretical influences leading to the economic and social ideas of Ebenezer Howard and his Garden City. This is a fascinating look at how Adelaide helped define city planning ideas in the nineteenth century.
