Abstract

The now familiar message, initiated by the NACNE and COMA reports, that our health is linked to our eating habits has resulted in consumers being much more selective when buying food. This demand for information has had a positive response from the food manufacturing industry and food retailers, many of whom are now giving detailed nutrition information on their labels. Similarly, we are about to have a set of Government guidelines on nutrition labelling designed to ensure that nutrition information is given in a standard format and can easily be compared.

Abstract

Dietary fibre is a general term for the combination of celluloses and pectins that pass through the digestive system largely unchanged. Modern cereal processing techniques and a decline in the popularity of bread and potatoes have combined to reduce our intake of fibre to around 20g per day. However, fibre is an essential part of our diet and low intakes are thought to lead to a series of problems varying from constipation to cancer of the colon.

Abstract

Food retailing began to change in the early 1950's with the introduction of self selection in shops. By 1987, this self selection accounted for 72% of the grocery trade. The abolition of retail price maintenance in 1964 was another important factor in the retail revolution and now just five large multiples dominate our food buying (see Table 1). Table 2 shows the impact of multiple retailing which has led to a rapid reduction in the total number of shops and an increase in the number of superstores which offer the consumer considerable breadth and depth of choice.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this short paper is to comment on the powerful contribution researchers have made to the emerging field of Indigenous O&M scholarship.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper reviews the work in the field of Indigenous O&M.

Findings

Indigenous O&M research, first, has been driven by the effects of colonization and the attempts to reclaim traditional ways of researching, organizing and managing, second; has sought asylum in established critical and alternative fields of scholarship to create research legitimacy in the mainstream, and; third, produced novel methodological processes.

Originality/value

Several observations of the field will be made and some considerations are put forward to promote research within the tight – almost impenetrable – boundaries of the academy and its institutions.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to compare responses of house prices in three important markets when faced with permanent and temporary shocks to income. It additionally decomposes each historical house price series into its permanent, temporary and deterministic components.

Design/methodology/approach

Using quarterly data over 1973‐2008, two‐variable systems of house prices and income are specified for three major house‐owning economies: New Zealand (NZ), the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA).

Findings

NZ and UK housing markets are sensitive to both permanent and temporary shocks to income, while the US market reacts to temporary shocks with the permanent component having a largely insignificant role to play in house price composition. In NZ, the temporary component of house prices has tended to be positive over time, pushing prices higher than they would have been otherwise; while in the UK, both permanent and temporary components have tended to reinforce each other.

Originality/value

The paper uses state‐of‐the‐art methods to analyse the relationships between income and house prices in three economies.
