Deregulation and the crisis in transitional banking systems in traditional and newly-established market economiesHewelt, Przemyslaw Wojciech January 1996 (has links)
At the end of the 1980s the banking system in Poland was de-regulated allowing competitive forces to operate. This process gave banks freedom to shape their lending policies. Since 1992 a number of banks had begun to report an increase in the number of bad loans. A number of banks had become insolvent. Analysis of case studies of failed banks showed that managers made serious mistakes in the decision - making process. Lack of experience of operating in the market environment could be the most obvious explanation to those phenomena. However, the analysis of the case studies of the banking de-regulation processes undertaken in the United Kingdom, the USA, Norway and Finland revealed a very similar pattern of lending behaviour which also led to deterioration of assets quality and, in extreme cases, to bankruptcy. In spite of different levels of economic development of Poland and the mature market economies mentioned above, the study indicates the existence of a common pattern of post de-regulation banking crises. Analysis of the financial de-regulation processesin the case study countries illustrates the hypothesis, that the nature of the post de-regulation banking crisis in Poland is similar to the post de-regulation crises observed in mature market economies. The shock of the regulatory change in the banking industry causes deterioration of risk management standards, with no respect whether banking de-regulation has been conducted in a mature market economy or in the transitional economy of Poland. In both cases the change of regulatory framework caused deterioration of risk management standards, which negatively affected banks' financial situation. This study provides also verification of Llewellyn's overreaction hypothesis in the conditions of a transitional economy of Poland. Findings of the study indicate that the hypothesis developed upon the experience of mature market economies also applies to the less developed banking system in Poland. VIII

Industrial organisation and environmental performance of the electricity industry in England-Wales and SpainBoira-Segarra, Isabel January 1996 (has links)
This study analyses how electricity generating firms achieve certain environmental performance under different industrial organisational structures through a comparative study of the main electricity utilities in England-Wales and Spain. This work studies industrial organisation by referring to firms' operating environment arguing that structural transformations and changing environmental constraints introduce complexity and risk that make technical and organisational shifts necessary for electricity firms to adapt and survive. Environmental performance is measured employing the concept of environmental capabilities as an analytical tool to study the way firms develop and accumulate the required technical, human and organisational assets to manage, co-ordinate and govern environmental performance in the face of uncertainty and technical and organisational change. Studying electricity producing firms in England-Wales and Spain allows assessment of the influence on the creation and accumulation of environmental capabilities of markets characterised by different levels of competition whilst being subjected to similar environmental pressures. The evidence shows that English-Welsh enterprises respond to competitive demands by implementing cost cutting strategies with environmental requirements being seen as a cost drain that needs to be minimised. This results in a tendency to satisfy environmental compliance by obtaining their environmental capabilities externally which together with a lack of internal competence rebuilding reduces short-term costs but compromises learning, their ability to generate change and thus, the sustainability of their environmental performance. In turn, Spanish firms operate in highly controlled markets that allow them to recover some environmental costs, thus reducing the commercial risk embodied in compliance. They satisfy environmental requirements in a less cost effective way than English-Welsh firms but their commercial strategies include continuous investment in a stock of internal competencies that witl allow them to learn from their outsourcing relationships and sustain their environmental performance.

The intensity of competitive interactions as a function of fertility, in Mediterranean-type old fields in South Australia / Brenton Ladd.Ladd, Brenton M. January 2003 (has links)
"April 22, 2003" / Bibliography: leaves 131-147. / 147 leaves : ill., 30 cm. / Title page, contents and abstract only. The complete thesis in print form is available from the University Library. / Studies the establishment of tree seedlings in Mediterranean-type oldfields in South Australia to test for a correlation between habitat fertility and the intensity of competition. Also investigates whether resource competition and invertebrate herbivory are confounded with each other. Testing for correlation was carried out using a quantitative literature review in combination with field and glasshouse experiments. Results suggest that direct effects,and indirect effects may be heavily confounded, and that a positive correlation between fertility and the intensity of competition is most probable when a phenomenological definition of competition is used. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Adelaide, School of Environmental Engineering, 2003

Abstract The industries moving to China cause the business environment of traditional industry getting worse than worse. But, it also accelerates eliminating the unhealthy company. How does the traditional industry survive in such bad situation? When they face the uncertain future, how do the companies draw up their strategy, reinforce the learning ability, and raise the corporate performance? They have to response the change faster than their competitors, know well the market tendency. Use the different concepts to create the un-replaceable core competitiveness. Changing the culture of the enterprise and creating the competition superiority are the keys of how the traditional industries survive and the study target of this research. In the progress of enterprise culture changing, the pain is unavoidable. The leader deeply involve into the revolution activities will encourage the employees. The enterprise culture changing is painful but also providing an opportunity to sift the wheat from the chaff. The right people will help the company from good to great. The culture change of an enterprise is an uninterrupted progress of concept and execution of an organization:
The Hotelling model discusses againYang, Jhen-yuan 23 June 2005 (has links)
Hotelling (1929) proposed two stages merchant location competition theory, in this article the principle of minimum difference, broke through in the traditional literature by the quantity competition model and the price competition model primarily merchant theory, in addition d'Aspremont, Gabszexise and Thisse (1979) the principle of maximum difference proposes, causes the economical educational world continuously unceasing discussion and the innovation. This research revises Hotelling (1929) the basic supposition, after joining the merchant to have the marginal cost the supposition as well as the consumer whether voluntarily do bear the travel cost , the discussion merchant solely is leaving the plant the set price system and solely ships under the different price system, the merchant in faces lives to the position in with assigns reigns the merchant factory site and so on under the different structure, how should the merchant choose the most suitable factory site. And separately discusses under two kind of different set prices systems, the merchant had been established when what kind of condition can respectively achieve the principle of minimum difference and the principle of maximum difference , or whether the merchant most suitable position choice can have other situations.
