Economists, Scientists Debate Research Efficiency Tanya Lewis
Tulane University - Finance & Economics March 15, 2011 Abstract: Some theoretical literature on firm-specific human capital investment suggests that severance contracts generate strong incentives for CEOs to ensure firm profitability, while the agency problem theory argues severance agreements are a less effective executive compensation measure.
Il s'agit de jeunes sociétés internet s'adressant à ceux qui préfèrent se prêter des voitures plutôt que de les posséder, séjourner dans une chambre familiale désertée plutôt que dans des hôtels ou lever des fonds auprès d'amis plutôt qu'auprès des banques. «Nous sommes au cœur d'une révolution de la propriété», affirme Rachel Botsman, auteur du livre What's Mine is Yours qui illustre le basculement vers un modèle de «consommation en collaboration». «Nous ne voulons pas de DVD, nous voulons de la musique», ajoute Mme Botsman.
Consumers are more demanding, time-starved, informed, and choice-saturated than ever-before. For brands to prosper, the solution is simple: become SERVILE.
Introduction | This year, much as in previous years, some brands may be staring into the abyss, while others will do exuberantly well.

sustainable consumption… in reality, it comes down to price and quality almost every time Martin Wright meets the authors of the latest report on sustainable consumption. Sustainable consumption: holy grail or oxymoron? It’s a question that’s been tantalising activists and business leaders alike since the phrase was first coined 20 years ago or more. It should be a no brainer.

via Anya Hart Dyke In a nutshell, the #AsktheQ campaign aims to bring pressure to bear on all sectors to improve their regard for the environment. Shoppers cast a vote every time they spend their money and because this is an everyday action, it can have a far greater impact on policy than stating an electoral preference every few years. As the influence of social media grows, consumers have an unprecedented opportunity to share concerns with thousands of people about governmental and corporate failure to protect our environment. Consumers crossing swords with companies on social media is a tried and tested driver of change.
I’ve got to admit I’m not the world’s biggest fan of geoengineering , and I’ve said so quite publicly . The idea is that if we fail to cut back greenhouse gas emissions and the planet’s temperature soars to potentially dangerous levels, we’ll have to do something. Since greenhouse gases trap heat from the sun, that something could be finding a way to block sunlight — by lofting particles of reflective sulfur dioxide up into the stratosphere, for example, or by “seeding” clouds with a fine spray of seawater to make them whiter, or even, in one of the more farfetched schemes I’ve heard about, by sending little mirrors into space.
While there have been some amazing social advances that have resulted from technology developed over the past century, these advances have come at a price; a price too high for our environment to sustain. Our growing demands are beginning to take their toll on the earth, and the effects of global climate change are becoming increasingly apparent. It is evident, now more than ever, that we must take drastic measures to control and reverse the negative impacts we have inflicted on our environment. Widespread complacency in the behaviours that epitomize our disposable society has resulted in incredibly unsustainable lifestyles, and practices that have put great strains on our Earth . Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and achieving a carbon neutral or carbon negative state, is a major determining factor in just how much we will be impacted by global climate change in the coming years.
