A Weberian analysis of business groups and financial markets

Название: A Weberian analysis of business groups and financial markets: Trade relations in Taiwan and South Korea and some major stock exchanges

Moral economy, as a set of rules which regulate market transactions, has been the object of much research and debate since the 1980's. Classical sociological authors as Weber, Simmel, and Toennies also dealt with this subject, however. Weber, in particular, dwelt on the rules of the moral economy in the financial markets. This work intends, first of all, to shed light on Weber's contribution, as distinguished from those of Simmel and Toennies. Secondly, with reference to Weber and Simmel, it formulates two models of business relations, one oligopolistic and the other based on free competition, and shows the consequences on competitiveness in the World market that flow from the prevalence of the one model or the other. In this connection, Network and Rational Choice Theories are mentioned. Finally, the conduct of actors in financial markets is accounted for by making reference to Weber's writings on the London and Berlin Stock Exchanges, and to investigations on contemporary financial markets.

The role of internal audit is changing. The Sarbanes Oxley legislation in the US and the Combined Code for Corporate Governance in the UK focused on the need to demonstrate the active management of risks and report on this subject to shareholders. Boards of Directors are therefore increasingly requiring their internal audit functions to provide a much higher level of assurance in this regard.

Buying Information Systems: Selecting, Implementing and Assessing Off-The-Shelf Systems

Название: Buying Information Systems: Selecting, Implementing and Assessing Off-The-Shelf Systems
Издательство: Gоwer Рublishing

Размер: 5 mb
Язык: English

Most organizations purchase off-the-shelf, computer-based systems to help them perform their day-to-day business activities. Sadly, many of the purchases fail to live up to expectations. This book provides a "blueprint" of what to cover in the early stages of the procurement process so as to prevent the recurring problem of information systems projects that run over budget and over time, and yet under-perform. The questions the book answers are simple but fundamental: where to find advice, who should be involved, how to manage the purchase, how to decide what you need, which package or supplier to choose, how to manage the implementation and how to know if the system is successful. Real examples of information system purchases are used to help provide practical guidance on the methods, the pitfalls and the keys to success. In addition, the book contains several adaptable tables and checklists to provide a flexible and effective step-by-step framework for the entire process.
