  • Controlling the conflict-of-interest in management buyouts 

    Easterwood, J. C.; Singer, R. F.; Seth, A.; Lang, D. F. (MIT Press, 1994-08)
    A controversial aspect of the management buyouts that were popular throughout the 1980s is the potential for a conflict of interest to arise when a manager bids to acquire the firm he manages. This study examines 184 ...
  • Foreign currency - Denominated debt: An empirical examination 

    Kedia, S.; Mozumdar, A. (University of Chicago Press, 2003-10)
    We examine the determinants of debt issuance in 10 major currencies by large U. S. firms. Using the fraction of foreign subsidiaries and tests exploiting the disaggregated nature of our data, we find strong evidence that ...
  • General open and closed queueing networks with blocking: A unified framework for approximation 

    Vroblefski, M.; Ramesh, R.; Zionts, S. (INFORMS, 2000)
    In this paper, we develop a unified framework for approximating open and closed queueing networks under any general blocking protocol by extending and generalizing the approximation algorithm for open tandem queues under ...
  • Is time-series-based predictability evident in real time? 

    Cooper, M.; Gulen, H. (University of Chicago Press, 2006-05)
    We show that out-of-sample tests used in the timeseries predictability literature may suffer from test size problems related to the common practice of exogenous specification of critical parameters, such as the choice of ...

  • Spline function smooth support vector machine for classification 

    Yuan, Y. B.; Fan, W. G.; Pu, D. M. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2007-08)
    This paper presents a duality theory for solving concave minimization problem and nonconvex quadratic programming problem subjected to nonlinear inequality constraints. By use of the canonical dual transformation developed ...
  • Stock market openings: Experience of emerging economies 

    Kim, E. H.; Singal, V. (University of Chicago Press, 2000-01)
    This article is an exploratory examination of the benefits and risks associated with opening of stock markets. Specifically, we estimate changes in the level and volatility of stock returns, inflation, and exchange rates ...
  • The Effect of Red Background Color on Willingness-to-Pay: The Moderating Role of Selling Mechanism 

    Bagchi, R.; Cheema, A. (University of Chicago Press, 2013-02)
    The authors investigate the effect of red backgrounds on willingness-to-pay in auctions and negotiations. Data from eBay auctions and the lab show that a red (vs. blue) background elicits higher bid jumps. By contrast, red ...
  • The Presenter's Paradox 

    Weaver, K.; Garcia, S. M.; Schwarz, N. (University of Chicago Press, 2012-10)
    This analysis introduces the Presenter's Paradox. Robust findings in impression formation demonstrate that perceivers' judgments show a weighted averaging pattern, which results in less favorable evaluations when mildly ...
  • Years, Months, and Days versus 1, 12, and 365: The Influence of Units versus Numbers 

    Monga, A.; Bagchi, R. (University of Chicago Press, 2012-06)
    Quantitative changes may be conveyed to consumers using small units (e. g., change in delivery time from 7 to 21 days) or large units (1-3 weeks). Numerosity research suggests that changes are magnified by small (vs. large) ...
