  • Ambiguity and public good provision in large societies 

    Bailey, Ralph W.; Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David (Blackwell, 2005-12)
    In this paper, we consider the effect of ambiguity on the private provision of public goods. Equilibrium is shown to exist and be unique. We examine how provision of the public good changes as the size of the population ...
  • Ambiguity and social interaction 

    Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David; Schipper, Burkhard C. (Oxford University Press, 2003-03)
    We present a non-technical account of ambiguity in strategic games and show how it may be applied to economics and social sciences. Optimistic and pessimistic responses to ambiguity are formally modelled. We show that ...
  • Ambiguity aversion and stock market participation: an empirical analysis 

    Antoniou, Constantinos; Harris, Richard D. F.; Zhang, Ruogu (Elsevier, 2015-04-14)
    Stock market participation is very low, with approximately two thirds of all U.S. households not owning any public equity. This is a puzzle in the context of the basic Expected Utility model. One explanation put forward ...
  • Ambiguity aversion, company size and the pricing of earnings forecasts 

    Antoniou, Constantinos; Galariotis, Emilios C.; Read, Daniel (2013-01-29)
    Several authors have reported an unconditional size effect in returns around earnings announcements. In this study we show how this finding can be understood as resulting from ambiguity aversion. We hypothesize that analyst ...
  • Ambiguity in financial markets: herding and contrarian behaviour 

    Ford, J.L.; Kelsey, David; Pang, Wei (Department of Economics, University of Birmingham, 2006-11)
    The paper studies the impact of ambiguity on history-dependant beahviour in the standard microstructure model of financial markets. We show that differences in ambiguity attitudes between market makers and traders can ...
  • Ambiguity in partnerships 

    Kelsey, David; Spanjers, Willy (Blackwell, 2004-07)
    The consequences of ambiguity for partnerships are addressed. Partnerships with symmetric linear production functions are analysed in a Choquet Expected Utility (CEU)-framework. Nash equilibrium in pure strategies is ...
  • Ambiguity, pessimism, and rational religious choice 

    Melkonyan, Tigran; Pingle, Mark (Springer, 2010)
    Using a subclass of the α-maximin expected-utility preference model, in which the decision maker’s degree of ambiguity and degree of pessimism are each parameterized, we present a theory of religious choice in the Pascalian ...
  • Analysing the Role of BPM in Driving Customer Satisfaction 

    Kumar, Vikas; Smart, Andi; Maull, Roger S.; Maddern, Harry (2007-06-14)
    Achieving high levels of customer satisfaction is a core issue for any business. This paper presents the results of an empirical analysis, based on longitudinal data from a large UK bank on drivers of customer satisfaction. ...
  • Analysing trade-offs in container loading: Combining load plan construction heuristics with agent-based simulation 

    Mustafee, Navonil; Bischoff, Eberhard E. (Wiley, 2013-07)
    In this paper we describe two operations research techniques, cutting and packing optimisation (CPO) and simulation, and present a multi-methodology approach for analysing the trade-offs between loading efficiency and ...
  • And now for something completely different? The impact of group membership on perceptions of creativity 

    Adarves-Yorno, Inmaculada; Haslam, S. Alexander; Postmes, Tom (Psychology Press, 2008-12)
    A wealth of historical, cultural, and biographical evidence points to the fact that there is considerable variation in different people's judgments of creative products. What is creative to one person is deviant to another, ...
  • Andrew Carnegie and the foundations of contemporary entrepreneurial philanthropy 

    Harvey, Charles; Maclean, Mairi; Gordon, Jillian; Shaw, Eleanor (Routledge/Taylor and Francis, 2011)
    This paper focuses upon the relationship between the business and philanthropic endeavours of world-making entrepreneurs; asking why, how and to what ends these individuals seek to extend their reach in society beyond ...
  • An annotated bibliography of tax compliance and compliance costs 

    James, Simon; Edwards, Alison (ESRC, 2010)
    This bibliography was compiled as part of the project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council into Optimum Tax Compliance Costs and Tax Simplification. It builds on earlier work – most notably by Ahmed et al. ...
  • Announcement or contribution: the relative efficiency of manipulated Lindahl mechanisms 

    Myles, Gareth D.; Hashimzade, Nigar (Blackwells, 2009)
    The private provision mechanism is individually incentive compatible but inefficient. The Lindahl mechanism is efficient but not incentive compatible. We analyze the outcome of the manipulated Lindahl mechanism. When the ...
  • Apostasy versus legitimacy: relational dynamics and routes to resource acquisition in entrepreneurial ventures 

    Stringfellow, Lindsay; Shaw, Eleanor; Maclean, Mairi (Sage, 2014)
    What causes some business owners to be marginalized by a social structure that empowers others? This paper explores the relational dynamics of legitimation within a professional service venture context, using a Bourdieusian ...

    Budak, T; James, SR (Australian School of Business, University of New South Wales, 2016-11)
    Tax systems world-wide are becoming more complex for a variety of reasons. Countries such as Australia, New Zealand (NZ) and the UK have attempted to simplify their taxes but with limited success. The Complexity Index ...
  • Application and support for high-performance simulation 

    Mustafee, Navonil; Taylor, Simon J.E. (Sage, 2013)
    High performance simulation that supports sophisticated simulation experimentation and optimization can require non-trivial amounts of computing power. Advanced distributed computing techniques and systems found in areas ...
  • An application of distributed simulation for hybrid modeling of offshore wind farms 

    Mustafee, Navonil; Sahnoun, M'Hammed; Smart, Andi; Godsiff, Philip (ACM, 2015-06-10)
    The complexity of systems and their multi-faceted relationships mean that the combined application of simulation methods, or hybrid simulation, will enable synergies across techniques and will provide greater insights to ...
  • Application of new venture-capital-investing decision-making-mechanism in education 

    Gyoshev, Stanley B. (SSRN, 2006-07)
