Jack Rasmus Jack Rasmus. 2015. Systemic Fragility in the Global Economy, Clarity Press. Atlanta. This book offers a new approach to explaining why mainstream economic analyses have repeatedly failed and why fiscal and monetary policies have been incapable of producing a sustained recovery. This new approach is based on a new conceptual framework, centered on a unifying concept called Systemic Fragility. Rooted in 9 key empirical trends, Systemic Fragility consists of the dynamic interaction of three constituent forms--financial, consumption, and government balance sheet fragility. Expanding upon the early contributions of Keynes, Minsky and others, the Theory of Systemic Fragility offers an alternative explanation why the global economy is slowing long term, becoming more unstable, why policies to date have largely failed, and why the next crisis may therefore prove even worse than 2008-09.

Terence Pitre Terence Pitre, Diagle, Ronald, Pinsker, May 2015. 'The Impact of Order Effects on Nonprofessional Investors' Belief Revision When Presented a Long Series of Sequential Disclosures in an Experimental Marketing Setting,' in Accounting Horizons. Because firms are likely to release both good and bad news in close proximity to each other, it is important to understand what impact a long information set of mixed directional (i.e., both good news and bad news) disclosures has on nonprofessional investors' stock price valuation decisions. Previous experimental reseach has identified information order effects as critical factor impacting the ecisions made by nonprofessional invesotrs. However, the efficient market hypothesis predicts that individual biases are eliminated by the presence of market incentives, an element that is missing in prior studies on the effects of long information sets disclosures. Consequently, this study seeks to understand if and how order effects prevail in a market setting that includes economic incentives.

hadani Michael Hadani, April 2015, 'The CEO as chief political officer: Managerial discretion and corporate political activity,' in the Journal of Business Research.Corporate political activity (CPA) which reflects firms’ attempts at achieving access to politicians, is on the rise. Comprised of tactics such as donations to election or reelection campaigns, hiring lobbyists or hiring former politicians to serve on boards of directors, CPA should strongly translate into firm level returns. Surprisingly the impact of CPA on firm returns or performance is mixed. Our study shows that is the discretion of the CEO that moderates the association between CPA and firm performance, a variable missing from extant theorizing and research on CPA. Examining the S&P 1000 firms over 10 years, we find that when aspects of CEO discretion are higher CPA has a negative impact on firm performance, based on both financial and accounting measures. Our findings support an agency view of the role of CEOs as political officers of their firms and suggests that opportunist or self-serving biases may operate, at least partly, in firms decisions to be politically active.
Anh Anh Nguyen, February 2015, 'Continuous Improvement in Vietnam: Unique Approaches for a Unique Culture,' in the Journal of Asian Business Studies.While Vietnam is attracting intense interest from the international business community, little research has been done on continuous improvement (CI) practices there, in part because Vietnamese companies have developed a strong culture of secrecy, and are very wary of granting research access to outsiders. This study offers one of the first “inside views” of Vietnamese management focusing particularly on continuous improvement. It identifies the cultural conditions that have most shaped, and continue to shape, the management of CI in Vietnam, and suggests ways that practitioners can design effective CI practices in that country.
