    U.S. trade barriers and female employment in the Bangladeshi ready-made garment industry by Keating, Madeline

    With the rise of industrialization in developing countries, the Bangladeshi ready-made garment industry has taken off in the last 40 years. With this rise in textile and garment factories, women have been able to participate with much more volume in the Bangladeshi economy because approximately 90% of garment workers in Bangladesh are females. The United States has consistently put import duties on Bangladeshi textile and garment goods higher than those of almost every other LDC, thus affecting the competitive nature of Bangladesh's number one GDP generator; apparel and textiles. This thesis aims to look at the effect that the high US tariff rates on Bangladesh's ready-made garments have on the female employment rate in the Bangladeshi garment factories

    Business aviation and competitive advantage by Myers, Keir William

    Despite the fact that business, or "corporate," aircraft use has grown rapidly in the past decades, there fails to be a sound case for justification rooted in business theory. Simultaneously, current strategy literature neglects a body of thought concerning how an external factor, such as business aviation, could affect a firm's core competencies and ultimately competitive advantage. As such, nine firms were interviewed using a business strategy lens in order to understand the justification and mentalities surrounding business aircraft assets. The interviews generated data that suggests a secondary or tertiary link between business aviation and competitive advantage while more importantly exposing the importance of intangibles for competitive advantage generation.

    Does whaling make cents? : A bioeconomic model of the Antarctic minke whale and the Japanese whaling industry by Buchanan, Samuel Prescott

    Japan's whaling fleet and environmental organizations are clashing in the Antarctic Ocean as Japan continues to conduct lethal scientific research on whales, specifically on the Antarctic minke whale (AMW). This conflict and issues surrounding other cetaceans have received substantial media attention in the past few years due to the Sea Shepherds Society's television show entitled Whale Wars and the movie The Cove. These productions succeeded in spreading awareness of Japan's lethal research on whales and harvests of dolphins, but insufficiently explained why Japan is engaging in practices that damage her international reputation. These media productions do not provide bioeconomic analysis modeling whether or not the species is threatened by Japan's actions nor the economics of whaling and Japan's market for whale products. Scientific articles related to the biology of whales, and historical, political, and cultural investigations that provide the foundation for the whaling conflict do not explore if Japan's lethal scientific research threatens the AMW with extinction nor explore the economics of Japan's whaling industry and domestic market if commercial whaling were to resume. This thesis aims to answer these questions by constructing a bioeconomic model composed of biological parameters and data from Japan's whaling fleet to estimate various sustainable catch yields and the corresponding AMW population sizes, Japan's seasonal effort in catcher-boat hours, and seasonal sustainable revenues. The eventual equilibrium population and sustainable catch yield if Japan maintains its current harvest effort, the maximum sustained yield, the condition of zero net revenue, and the condition in which the discounted total present value for all future whaling revenue is achieved will be explored in particular. The results conclude that Japan's current scientific research does not endanger the AMW, and furthermore concludes that whaling is not only profitable, but the industry capacity, high costs, and shrinking domestic demand discourage overharvesting that could lead to the collapse of the species

    The role of media and AIDS knowledge in eradicating the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India by Agarwal, Smriti

    This paper aims to understand the AIDS concern in India by analyzing two different relations. The first model studies the effect of media sources such as newspapers, radios and television on AIDS-related knowledge among Indian men and women using a twostage hurdle model. The second model looks at the effect of AIDS-related knowledge on the sexual behavior of Indians using the Probit analysis. Both these relationships hint towards the possible problems faced by AIDS campaigns and government programs in combating the HIV epidemic in India. The effect of media in promoting AIDS education, even though statistically significant, is minimal. Moreover, the effect of AIDS knowledge on sexual behavior is very disturbing. Women have insignificant control over their sexual behavior despite their improved knowledge levels. Moreover, men's behavior is barely influenced by their knowledge levels. Thus, increasing AIDS knowledge among Indians is only one of the several crucial steps in controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic. However, the success of AIDS campaigns and other programs also depend on factors such as improved education levels, better job conditions, enhanced livelihood, and additional resources for the country's healthcare.

    The effects of local land use regulation on property values, journey to work, and the quality of public service delivery : case studies of Boulder, Berkeley, and Fort Collins by Muire, Annie

    Beginning in the early 1960's, local governments throughout the United States have implemented growth management policies intended to influence the pattern of development and restrict growth. These regulations affect the conditions of community life by increasing property values, shifting demographics, and altering the delivery of public services. This thesis examines these effects through case studies of the City of Boulder, the City of Berkeley, and the City of Fort Collins, using data primarily from the US Census Bureau. It is hypothesized that the city with the most growth management policies will experience these effects to a greater magnitude. This was found to be partly true; there are other overriding factors that contribute to these changes more so than the presence or absence of growth management policies.

    The evolution of cooperation in common-pool resources by Suhler, David

    The prevalence of cooperation among appropriators in common-pool resources contradicts the predictions of the theory of collective action. Understanding the factors that affect the propensity for appropriators to cooperate will yield insights into the role of institutions and social norms in managing resources. An evolutionary game theory model is constructed to show the emergence and stability of a cooperative equilibrium subject to initial conditions. A logit regression model is used to determine the effect social, institutional, and physical variables have on the probability of a cooperative equilibrium emerging in irrigation systems in Nepal. The system location and type of management structure are found to affect the likelihood of cooperation and efficient use of the resource.

  • Thumbnail for The economics of popping bubbles
    The economics of popping bubbles by Deichen, Troy

    In 2009 the global markets experienced a crash the likes of which had not been seen since the Great Depression. This paper seeks to use principles of behavioral finance to analyze the economic climate generated before, after, and during a "bubble" period. The efficient market model presented by Eugene Fama is unable to explain the phenomenon known as a bubble period. Using traditional and nontraditional stock indicators, this paper will examine the correlation between volume and price in relation to the climate in which bubbles are generated.

  • Thumbnail for Creating loyalty through online customer relationships
    Creating loyalty through online customer relationships by Hancock, Benjamin Barrera

    The Internet continues to grow as a competitive marketplace increasing both in the number of consumers and online businesses. The Internet also offers low switching costs allowing shoppers to move from one online store to another with virtually no expenses. The combination of increased competition and low switching costs makes retaining loyal customers a problem for online businesses. Most companies, online or offline, depend on loyal customers as the foundation of their financial success. One solution in recent research indicates that building strong online customer relationships attracts and captures long-term customers. Therefore, online marketers have begun to rely on relationship marketing strategies to increase online customer loyalty. Through the distribution and analysis of a customer survey, this study aims to show that customer relationship strategies work to increase the level of customer loyalty towards an online store, while also identifying which particular relationship components have the greatest affect on customer loyalty.

    The utility of Facebook Page Wall comments : a case study by Andrews, Sarah Palmer

    This thesis provides a case study of four major companies' Facebook pages. Comments made by consumers were collected and analyzed for the pages belonging to Dove, BMW, Taco Bell, and Starbucks. This thesis argues that while many believe Facebook to be an extension of Viral Marketing, the case studies provided within show that Facebook is not even a form of marketing. It is an additional but still necessary avenue for the consumer to contact the company.
