The Bear Stearns Companies, Inc. (former New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol BSC) based in New York City, is a global investment bank and securities trading and brokerage firm owned by JPMorgan Chase. The main business areas, based on 2006 net revenue distributions, were capital markets (equities, fixed income, investment banking, just under 80%), wealth management (under 10%) and global clearing services (12%). Bear Stearns pioneered the securitization and asset-backed securities markets, and as investor losses mounted in those markets in 2006 and 2007, the company actually increased its exposure, especially the mortgage-backed assets that were central to the subprime mortgage crisis. In March 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York provided an emergency loan to try to avert a sudden collapse of the company. The company could not be saved, however, and was sold to JPMorgan Chase for as low as ten dollars per share, a price far below the 52-week high of $133.20 per share, traded before the crisis, although not as low as the two dollars per share originally agreed upon by Bear Stearns and JP Morgan Chase.
Inadequate state subsidy, and purely monetary interpretation of the private social rates of return from state Universities combined with the view that not all beneficiaries of public subsidies are students from poor background has led to a situation where there is a demand that the beneficiaries, that is parents and students be made to share the cost of providing University education. Furthermore, the need for cost effectiveness and supplementary income to argument public subsidy also pushed universities to devise cost sharing, cost cutting and revenue generation schemes.The economic downturn changed the funding systems in state universities with some being quick to adopt while slow ones continued to struggle.The pain on parents and students also led to acceptance of reality
Taxpayer compliance is a voluntary activity, and the degree to which the tax system works is affected by taxpayers' knowledge that it is their moral and legal responsibility to pay their taxes. Taxpayers also recognize that they face a lottery in which not all taxpayer noncompliance will ever be detected. In the United States most individuals comply with the tax law, yet the tax gap has grown significantly over time for individual taxpayers. The US Internal Revenue Service attempts to ensure that the minority of taxpayers who are noncompliant pay their fair share with a variety of enforcement tools and penalties. The Causes and Consequences of Income Tax Noncompliance provides a comprehensive summary of the empirical evidence concerning taxpayer noncompliance and presents innovative research with new results on the role of IRS audit and enforcements activities on compliance with federal and state income tax collection. Other issues examined include to what degree taxpayers respond to the threat of civil and criminal enforcement and the important role of the media on taxpayer compliance. This book offers researchers, students, and tax administrators insight into the allocation of taxpayer compliance enforcement and service resources, and suggests policies that will prevent further increases in the tax gap. The book's aggregate data analysis methods have practical applications not only to taxpayer compliance but also to other forms of economic behavior, such as welfare fraud.

The emergence of Social Media Plaforms, and the rise of Influencers, have created a new online ecosystem known as "the beauty community". This phenomenon has completely disrupted the beauty industry and revolutionized the consumer's decision journey in this sector. The driving force of the beauty industry - millennial consumers - nowadays spends most of its time on social media platforms. Trends and opinion leaders are the main source of information, to which they award a previously unrecorded amount of trust.This book will, therefore, examine the current literature about the subject, by highlighting how Social Media Influencers and Social Media Trends are changing and shaping the industry. Firstly, it provides theoretical support to the allegation that, in order for a beauty brand to increase revenue streams, gain competitive advantage, market share and customer loyalty, Social Media and Influencer marketing cannot be ignored. Secondly, by focusing on millennials' purchase behaviour, this book provides an empirical analysis of how the preferred sources of information, in which consumers allocate trust, impact perceived brand image and the consequent purchase intention.

It is a boldly held view that the assignment problem in a federal set up is less challenging than problems witnessed in intergovernmental fiscal transfers (both grants and revenue sharing). The issue of challenges to intergovernmental fiscal transfers and possible options of channeling them did not, however, attract much attention as it deserves and this work is a slight attempt to fill the gap thus created. It is especially challenging in countries such as Ethiopia where states are substantially dependent on the federal government to cover the lion s share of their expenditures. The book argued that the prevalent vertical fiscal imbalance of the states in Ethiopia could not only be rectified through fiscal transfers unless we sought some other options, including revisiting the provisions of the Federal Constitution, to boost the fiscal capacity of the states. The book is especially important for any organ interested in the functioning of the Ethiopian fiscal federalism as compared to other three federal countries (Germany, India, and Nigeria) and policy makers that tend to formulate effective grant and revenue sharing formulas.

The securities exchange industry is in a state of flux. Exchanges constantly develop new revenue sources and products, try to expand their market share through fierce competition and pursue the consolidation of the industry. A prerequisite for this development was their transformation into market-oriented for-profit entities that are dominated by outside investors. This process is commonly referred to as demutualization. In order to understand the current developments in the securities exchange industry, Felix Treptow examines the changing relationship between exchanges and issuers, analyses the micro- and macroeconomic drivers of the demutualization decision, and investigates its impact on market liquidity. He presents a detailed analysis of both the determinants as well as the consequences of the demutualization of securities exchanges.
