Abstract

While high on marijuana, a computer operator at the main computer reservations centre of a major airline failed to load a crucial tape at a crucial time. The result was eight hours of “down” computer time, erased reservations, and a $19 million loss to the airlines. Commenting on the $19 million loss, an airline spokesman said: “That was an awfully expensive joint by anybody's standards.”

Abstract

Asian‐American is a quite diversified ethnic group. Each nationality maintain its own culture and identity while most still enjoy a similar central Asian culture. The Asian population is rapidly growing, especially on the West Coast of America where 17 percent (Patel, D.I. 1988) of the total population is composed of Asians. By the year 2000 only 15 percent (Hutchens, S. Jr. 1989) of the additional workers drawn to American corporations will be whites, i.e. most new workers will be from other ethnic groups including Asians. Asian employees present a particular group pattern of behaviour and attitude which results from their cultural backgrounds, e.g. lack of initiative, respect for authority and self‐restraint. They also experience problems in handling the English language and expressions. American management faces the challenge of understanding and effectively managing Asian employees. A competitive edge will be obtained by whoever best understands this new diverse labour force of which the Asian employees are a significant part.

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

Investigates the differences in protocols between arbitral tribunals and courts, with particular emphasis on US, Greek and English law. Gives examples of each country and its way of using the law in specific circumstances, and shows the variations therein. Sums up that arbitration is much the better way to gok as it avoids delays and expenses, plus the vexation/frustration of normal litigation. Concludes that the US and Greek constitutions and common law tradition in England appear to allow involved parties to choose their own judge, who can thus be an arbitrator. Discusses e‐commerce and speculates on this for the future.

Abstract

Interviews over 120 sellers and low‐level distributors of the drug “crack” in New York City. Documents seller strategies to counter police tactics. Finds that crack sellers and distributors have developed several important strategies to limit vulnerability to arrest, but that success in avoiding arrest diminishes considerably once they are detected by police. Suggests that problem‐oriented approaches are better than crackdowns, since they permanently disrupt the environmental conditions that foster drug market sites.
