Abstract

Political correctness, also known as “PC,” has generated much discussion on both the Right and the Left. The greatest debate comes from college campuses. Political correctness derives from the principle that ethnic diversity, i.e., multiculturalism, can and should be preserved and protected. Ironically, the term originated in the Marxist era, when it was used to enforce conformity in the advancement of a particular Marxist view. The term became obsolete until it was revived in the 1980s (D'Souza, 1991).

This paper aims to explain the SEC's new Rule 201 and amended Rule 200(g), which are designed to improve the regulations that address harmful shortselling practices.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to explain the SEC's new Rule 201 and amended Rule 200(g), which are designed to improve the regulations that address harmful shortselling practices.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper summarizes Rule 201, discusses the reasoning behind the “alternative uptick rule”, defines “covered securities” to which Rule 201 applies, explains why the commission chose the national best bid as the basis of the execution of short sales during the circuit breaker period, discusses the SEC's policies and procedures approach, explains conditions under which a broker‐dealer submitting a short‐sale order after the circuit breaker is triggered submitting a short sale order after the circuit breaker is triggered may mark the order “short exempt,” explains the reason an exception for market making activities is not included in the rule, and discusses the implementation period and the need for broker‐dealers to develop new policies and procedures.

Findings

Broker‐dealers and other market centers will need to dedicate significant compliance and systems resources to develop the policies and procedures and systems enhancements necessary to comply with the rule.

Originality/value

The paper provides practical guidance from experienced securities lawyers.

Abstract

To date, the limited level of attention devoted to equity issues has perhaps been clearest in work done outside of the social sciences, but in our view, even social science work on environmental issues has devoted too little attention to the importance of equity and inequality. In an chapter that proved particularly influential in spelling out approaches for analyzing relationships between society and environment, for example, Dunlap and Catton (1983); see also Dunlap (1993) noted the importance of recognizing three “analytically distinguishable functions” of the biophysical environment, reflecting the fact that humans tend to use the environment as (1) a dwelling place, (2) a source of supplies, and (3) a repository for wastes. The typology has been influential in part because it is so simple and so useful. In addition, as noted in later work by Dunlap (1993) and Dunlap and Catton (2002), for example, one factor behind rising awareness of environmental problems, particularly in the context of the social problems literature, is that these three functions tend to be incompatible with one another. In present-day homes, for example, we tend to separate bathrooms from bedrooms from eating places, and more broadly, across many of the world's cultures, the pressure to devote more and more of the finite space available to one such function – for example, waste disposal – is in fact increasingly running into competing demands to use the same spaces for resource supplies or living spaces.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present a viewpoint on aligning strategy and execution to produce superior business results.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper examines the long-term financials of the top ten growers to reveal companies that have continued to grow in good economic times and bad, including the Great Recession. While some companies dug deeper into their core businesses during the financial crisis, others continued to innovate.

Findings

Where companies continued to focus on strategy execution, they were rewarded, for example, Amazon’s compound annual growth rate for the ten-year period that included the financial crisis was 36.45 per cent; in the past three years, Amazon’s compound annual growth rate (CAGR) has been 56.76 per cent. Most of the top ten long-term growers are headed by the same founder/entrepreneur.

Research limitations/implications

Look beyond the past three years for models of successful strategy execution.

Practical implications

For long-term company leaders, entrepreneurs, or turnaround experts, strategic execution is no oxymoron, but a requirement for growth and, ultimately, their unique responsibility.

Social implications

The paper identifies three major focus areas for strategy teams and company leadership: 1. customer centricity and strategy execution; 2. learning from survivors; and 3. rethinking capabilities and talent.

Originality/value

As a professor of strategic management and as a consultant to organizations on strategy and marketing transformation, we have focused on the activities that are necessary for leaders to create effective strategy and to execute successfully. We have also been responsible for equipping the larger teams of strategy professionals (and future strategy professionals) who support these leaders with the approaches, the methods, and the tools necessary to plan effectively, to assess effectiveness, and to correct problems in strategy and execution. We bring that perspective to this viewpoint paper.
