This article establishes conditions sufficient to ensure that a decision of a firm is judged to be desirable by any one shareholder (e.g., the firm's manager) if and only if every shareholder judges it to be desirable. One such condition is that the decision...

Measuring the social gains from recent technological advances is difficult because there are no output indexes from some important adopters. Measurement methods that infer the willingness-to-pay of theadopting industries from the derived demand curve...

In this study, fundamentalism, extrinsic, intrinsic, and quest religious orientations were used to predict discriminatory attitudes toward blacks, women, homosexual persons, and communists. The four discriminations yielded a strong "general tendency to...

An extension of the kappa coeHicient is proposed which is appropriate for use with multiple observations per subject (not necessarily an equal number) and for multiple response choices per observation. Computational methods and nonasymptotic, nonnull...

This revised edition of Memes of Translation includes updates that relate the book's themes to more recent research in Translation Studies. The book contributes to the debate about whether it is worth seeking a coherent theory of translation, by proposing...

We present a method for proving the existence of Kiihler-Einstein metrics of positive scalar curvature on certain compact complex manifolds, and use the method to produce a large class of examples of compact Kiihler-Einstein manifolds of positive scalar...

descent from parliamentary democracy into the Nazi dictatorship. No such radical change of regime occurred in the United States. Yet the "New Deal" of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first two presidential terms (1933-1940) was one of the most innovative...

We estimate the demand for health plans by employees in 17 Minneapolis firms. The data set has approximately 900 employees who chose a single-coverage health plan and 2,100 employees who chose family coverage. A nested logit model is empirically shown...

(p. 83) In this paper the palynological examination of sediment cores from Lake Zeribar and Lake Mirabad in the Zagros Mountains of western Iran is discussed. Radiocarbon dates suggest that the Lake Zeribar pollen record covers the last 40,000 years,...

This paper examines the relationship between brand associations (anything in the consumer's mind linked to a specific team brand) and brand loyalty in US professional sport. To study the relationship between 13 brand association dimensions and brand loyalty,...

Goffinan is credited with enriching our understanding of the details of interaction, but not with challenging our theoretical understanding of social organization. While Goffman's position is not consistent, the outlines for a theory of an interaction...

SUMMARY A method of discrimination, based on maximum likelihood estimation, is described. On a variety of mathematical models, including and extending the models most commonly assumed in discriminant theory, the discriminant reduces to multivariate logistic...

This paper is concerned mainly with two-stage Max-Min problems, in which the minimizing “player” acts after the maximizing “player” and with full knowledge of the choice of the maximizing player. Such problems arise in operations research for...

Health-related quality of life is a multidimensional concept with five broad domains: opportunity/resilience, health perception, functional states, impairments/diseases, and duration of life. It addresses the tradeoff between how long and how well people...

SUMMARY Two new indices are presented for the measurement of distances between populations on the basis of attribute data. The intermediate variables used to obtain these indices help to analyse attribute data in almost all the ways in which quantitative...

The main and interactive effects of age, period, and cohort are not estimable, although certain combinations of those effects are. A method used to obtain estimates of the effects of these variables involves the assumption of additivity and the imposition...

SUMMARY General definitions of demographic and environmental variances as well as demographic covariance are given from first principles. The sum of the environmental variance and the demographic covariance is the covariance betweeen two individuals'...

Summary Various distance-based methods of testing for randomness in a population of spatially distributed events are described. Special emphasis is placed upon preliminary analysis in which the complete enumeration of the events within the study area...

The paper describes a geographical solution to the scale and aggregation problems frequently encountered in studies of spatially aggregated data. Instead of trying to model the effects of scale and aggregation, the problem is inverted. An attempt is made...

There have been two main contributions to the theory of operator algebras on Hilbert space. In a series of five memoirs, Murray and von Neumann have made important strides toward the structure theory of the weakly closed case. In work begun by the Russian...

We propose a new approach to analyzing gender differences in wages. This approach identifies several alternative explanatory mechanisms to account for the sorting of women and men into different types of jobs that offer different levels of reward. Because...

The level of measurement of the dependent variable (nominal, ordinal, interval) crucially affects the selection of statistical techniques. Conventional wisdom further restricts the choice of an appropriate technique. In this Workshop paper, we compare...

In this paper, the discursive practices through which males and females are created as opposites and through which people become identifiably one or the other are analysed. It is shown how gender is created by individuals and within individuals as they...

This paper examines the choice of an insurance contract when insurance is of the deductible type. This optimal choice is shown to be directly related to the insured's degree of risk aversion. Under certain assumptions, it is shown that an individual with...
