Abstract

Describes the various systems which have been developed for monitoring gaseous emissions from industrial chimney stacks and flues. Compares extractive and non‐extractive systems and outlines the four main types of analyzer used in continuous extractive systems. Gives a detailed description of the cross‐stack method and how it is used to determine carbon monoxide concentration in a typical process gas flue. Concludes that cross stack analyzers can be used to measure a variety of gases and that the adaptability and low maintenance requirements of this technology make it suitable for monitoring a comprehensive range of gaseous pollutants.

Abstract

Authenticity is an interactionist distinction that is symbolically created and negotiated in everyday life. This paper (1) investigates “underground” country musicians and their definitions of self, including the process of creating accounts and (2) demonstrates the importance of authenticity-based identity work as a symbolically constituted and socially negotiated process. The purpose here is not to celebrate “authentic” country music, but rather to examine how these artists construct and manage the perception of authentic identities and to also demonstrate how authenticity-based identity work serves as a meaningful addition to these artists’ identities.

Abstract

Endorsement of a brand or sports team by a sports celebrity has been thoroughly researched within the context of sports marketing. However, the recent phenomenon of non-sports celebrities owning sports teams has received little research attention. This study uses a survey of Indian respondents in the context of a major sport (cricket) in India to explore the impact of a non-sports celebrity owning and endorsing a sports team on consumer attitudes towards the team and their sponsors. Findings indicate that the level of credibility assigned to the celebrity significantly affects consumer attitudes towards the team and its sponsors. The results suggest that managers of sports teams and their sponsors should consider a celebrity owner as an endorser, as long as that celebrity has high credibility.

The study proposes competence models for the roles of process owners, process analysts and industrial engineers based on qualitative research.

Abstract

Purpose

The study proposes competence models for the roles of process owners, process analysts and industrial engineers based on qualitative research.

Design/methodology/approach

The research methodology is a combination of a questionnaire survey and interviewing in Czech companies, which develop the process approach. The proposed competence models can be utilized during business process management (BPM) implementation while appointing process owners, analysts and industrial engineers and their further development.

Findings

This paper emphasizes the role of human factor and presents research results concerning most important BPM roles and their competencies.

Research limitations/implications

There is lack of research (a research gap) in the field of BPM roles, what they do and what they should do.

Practical implications

A system of competence models is thus a tool for human resource management and should increase the success rate of BPM projects. Another possible utilization is in higher education in business administration.

Social implications

Another possible utilization is in higher education in business administration.

Originality/value

It proposes competence models for the roles of process owners, process analysts and industrial engineers based on qualitative research.

Abstract

There have been well‐publicised stories of workers who have got the sack rather than join a union. David Harvey looks at the way managements and unions are handling the dilemmas posed by the closed shop law and its impact on the individual's liberty to work where he chooses.

Abstract

Aim of the present monograph is the economic analysis of the role of MNEs regarding globalisation and digital economy and in parallel there is a reference and examination of some legal aspects concerning MNEs, cyberspace and e‐commerce as the means of expression of the digital economy. The whole effort of the author is focused on the examination of various aspects of MNEs and their impact upon globalisation and vice versa and how and if we are moving towards a global digital economy.

Abstract

Purpose: Following the theoretical literature on growth model with externalities, the chapter aims at finding empirical evidence of the main sources of economic interdependencies in Europe.

Methodology/approach: A two-step econometric procedure is adopted. In the first step, in order to evaluate growth spillovers in Europe, cointegration relationships between indexes of industrial production per capita are estimated for 15 European countries. The estimated coefficients, interpreted as long-run elasticities between European countries, appear to be different between countries and unstable over time. In the second step, these coefficients are explained by trade, specialization, research and development (R&D), and macroeconomic variables.

Findings: Panel estimations show strong evidence in favor of a positive relationship between openness, country size, knowledge accumulation, and the long-run sensitivity to European income. European income spillovers are not explained by the specialization of trade and production. We conclude that countries that benefit the most from economic integration are the largest and those that invest the most in R&D.

Originality/value of chapter: The two-step approach adopted in this chapter is original and allows for measuring the impact of various determinants of externalities at the same time.

Abstract

American radical economists in the 1960s perceived China under Maoism as an important experiment in creating a new society, aspects of which they hoped could serve as a model for the developing world. But the knowledge of “actually existing Maoism” was very limited due to the mutual isolation between China and the US. This chapter analyses the First Friendship Delegation of American Radical Political Economists (FFDARPE) to the People’s Republic of China in 1972, consisting mainly of Union for Radical Political Economics (URPE) members, which was the first visit of a group of American economists to China since 1949. Based on interviews with trip participants as well as archival and published material, this chapter studies what we can learn about the engagement with Maoism by American radical economists from their dialogues with Chinese hosts, from their on-the-ground observations, and their reflection upon return. We show how the visitors’ own ideas conflicted and intersected with their perception of the Maoist practice on gender relations, workers’ management, and life in the communes. We also shed light on the diverging conceptions of the role for economic expertise between URPE and late Maoism. As the first in-depth study on the FFDARPE, we provide rich empirical insights into an ice-breaking event in the larger process of normalization in the Sino-US relations, which ultimately led to the disillusionment of the Left with China.
