To determine the factors behind this persistent food price inflation is a matter of great interest and concern for the academics and policy makers. This study focuses on the identification of main determinants of food price inflation in Pakistan. Empirical findings prove that both demand and supply side factors like inflation expectations, money supply, per capita GDP, support prices, food imports and food exports are the main determinants of food price inflation in Pakistan.

Forecasting seat sales in passenger airlines using the reverse traffic

Forecasting seat sales in passenger airlines using the reverse traffic

Since 1985, companies try to segment customers in base of their valuation and consider that people have a higher willingness to pay when it is close to departure date. The goal for segmentation is achieving higher precision in forecasts and in this research we found that segmentation of customers in base of their period of staying in destination is more achievable and found no segments for customers in base of their valuation in our studied routes. Also we found that people are not price sensitive but they are quite sensitive to price changes. No matter the direction of a price change would be, there are people who are more interested to buy when price changes. Of course the competition in a market controls the steadily increasing prices but price volatility is apparently a persuading factor for travelers to make a buying decision. In this research, we used a large database from a major North American airline which had all flights information between three routes in a period of 18 months.

Private Benefits of Control in Corporate Acquisitions

Private Benefits of Control in Corporate Acquisitions

The book identifies efficiency costs in corporate control auctions distorted by the valuable extractability of private benefits from control of the auctioned firm by potential acquirers. Such costs may entail suboptimal control transfers to the extent that the present value of all future private benefits constitutes an element of the competing bidders’ valuation of the target. To avoid those efficiency costs, the book proposes a dilution warrants mechanism. The mechanism essentially presumes that control premia relative to the postacquisition target share market price reflects private benefits. Thus, the dilution warrants confer: (1) on the target’s minority shareholders an opportunity for compensation; and (2) on potential acquirers a disincentive to pay a premium in the prospect of extracting private benefits of control.

Oil Price Hike and the Nigerian Economy

Oil Price Hike and the Nigerian Economy

The study sought to determine the effect of oil price hike on the prices of products from the non-oil sectors in the Nigerian economy. Input-output analysis was used to show the interdependence between the various sectors of the Nigerian economy as well as the price changes in the different sectors occasioned by oil price changes. The population consisted of all the thirty-two (32) industrial sectors of the Nigerian economy. Z test for population proportions was used to test for significance of the price changes while Chi-Square was used to test for independence between price changes in the non-oil sectors of the Nigerian economy and the oil sector. Research findings indicated that increases in the prices of petroleum products have direct significant impact on transport fares and indirect significant impact on prices of products from the non-oil sectors. The need for policy makers to invest in the provision of adequate infrastructural facilities as well as guarantee enhanced earnings for the generality of Nigerian workers were suggested, among others; to ensure that oil earnings , as obtained in major oil exporting countries, translate to economic development in the true sense.

CEO Compensation, Compensation Risk, and Coporate Governance

CEO Compensation, Compensation Risk, and Coporate Governance

Literature suggests that CEOs of technology firms earn higher pay than CEOs of non-technology firms. I investigate whether compensation risk explains the difference in compensation between technology firms and non-technology firms. Controlling for firm size and performance, I find that CEOs in technology firms have higher pay, but also have much higher compensation risk compared to non-technology firms. Compensation risk explains the major part of the difference in CEO pay. My study is consistent with the labor market economics view that CEOs earn competitive risk-adjusted total compensation.
