Optimal Production and Rationing Policy of Two-Stage Tandem Production System

Date: 03/2017
Author(s): Xu, Jianjun; Serrano, Alejandro; Lin, Bing

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

The rationing literature has been so far oblivious to the fact that sellable items may not only be finished products, but also intermediate products to manufacture subsequent sellable products. We address this gap by considering an inventory rationing problem in a two-product tandem make-to-stock production/inventory system. Bulk demand arrives to ...

Author(s): Kyriakou, Harris; Nickerson, Jeffrey V.; Sabnis, Gaurav

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

Theories of knowledge reuse posit two distinct processes, reuse for replication and reuse for innovation. We identify another distinct process, reuse for customization.

Understanding the Decision to Offshore Human Resource Activities: A Coevolutionary Perspective

Date: 02/2017
Author(s): Paz-Aparicio, C.; Ricart, Joan Enric; Bonache, J.

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

Offshoring has been studied widely in the literature on strategic management and international business. However, apart from its consideration as an administrative activity, scant attention has been paid to the offshoring of the human resource (HR) function. Research in this regard has instead focused on outsourcing (Reichel and Lazarova, 2013). The ...

Author(s): Badia, Marc; Duro, Miguel; Peñalva, Fernando; Ryan, Stephen

Firms measure fair values using Level 2 or 3 inputs when items do not trade in liquid markets, limiting market discipline over the measurements. We provide evidence that firms holding higher proportions of financial instruments measured at Level 2 and 3 fair values report more conditionally conservative comprehensive income attributable to fair value ...

We shed light on this issue by analyzing the relationship between partners' free-riding - defined as their effort-withholding - and their perceptions of ...

Date: 27/01/2017
Author(s): Fernández, Pablo

Document type: Working Paper

This document tries to answer to a frequent question of students and clients: are Finance and Financial Economics the same thing? My answer is NO: I think that they are very different, although the terms are very often confused and many Finance professor positions in many Business Schools have been filled with Financial Economists.

Editor(s): PPSRC - Public-Private Sector Research Center
Document type: Working Paper

We analyze a divisible good uniform-price auction that features two groups each with a fi…nite number of identical bidders. Equilibrium is unique, and the relative market power of a group increases with the precision of its private information but declines with its transaction costs. In line with empirical evidence, we fi…nd that an increase ...

Author(s): Cespa, Giovanni; Vives, Xavier
Editor(s): Cátedra Abertis de Regulación, Competencia y Políticas Públicas; PPSRC - Public-Private Sector Research Center
Document type: Working Paper

We show that limited dealer participation in the market, coupled with an informational friction resulting from high frequency trading, can induce demand for liquidity to be upward sloping and strategic complementarities in traders' liquidity consumption decisions: traders demand more liquidity when the market becomes less liquid, which in turn makes ...
