Fanny Price vs. Jane Eyre:A comparison of the two heroines and their respective popularity. Auflage. Anja Schulte
The differences in relative industry productivity across countries are of interest and importance for several reasons. The difference in total factor productivity (TFP) explains comparative advantage, international differences in price structure, and gaps in income and growth across countries. Productivity comparison by industry is attracting interest because the overall TFP comparison to the economy has strong assumptions such as the same production function and identical factor prices over all industries. Irrespective of the sizes of manufacturing industries in the economy, the industries are important contributors to economic growth. The reason is that manufacturing generates much new technology and has big spillover effects on other sectors of the economy. Productivity comparisons across countries require a multilateral productivity index based on the Malmquist index. This book explores multilateral TFP comparison of manufacturing industries in 12 OECD counties since 1980 and identifies changes in TFPs over time and across countries.

Reinsortiger Cariñena von 60 Jahre alten Reben auf Schieferböden eines Nordhangs.Vergoren mit den natürlichen Hefen und gereift in 2500-Liter Fudern aus österreichischer Eiche und 500-Liter Barriques aus französischer Eiche.Luis Gutiérrez von Robert Parker’s Wine Advokat schwärmt mit 95+ Punkten:Similar to the Dits del Terra but from a north-facing slope, the 2013 Arbossar is pure Cariñena from an ancient vineyard planted around 90 years ago, and it is always a fresher and more floral style of Cariñena, matured in a Stockinger foudre for some 16 months. I already tasted an unbottled sample last year and it showed great, lively, very red fruit-driven, electric and full of flowers and minerals, and the bottled version has delivered as expected. It´s a bright ruby colored red, which is always fragrant and perfumed, more feminine than the Dits del Terra, which is the comparison because both vineyards are in Torroja and the wines share the same price range. The nose reveals bright red fruit, and feels fresher than the 2014. The tannins are ultra-sleek, really elegant and balanced. This is a superb, elegant and fresh Cariñena, without any rusticity. Super! (28. Okt. 2016)
Even skilled salespeople buckle in tough selling situations - getting defensive with prospects who challenge them on price or too quickly caving to discount pressure. Those are examples the fight-or-flight response - something salespeople learn to avoid when they build their emotional intelligence. Studies have shown that emotional intelligence (EI) is a strong indicator of success. In Emotional Intelligence for Sales Success, sales trainer and expert Colleen Stanley shows how closely EI is tied to sales performance and how salespeople can sharpen their skills to maximize results. Listeners will discover:How to increase impulse control for better questioning and listeningThe EI skills related to likability and trustHow empathy leads to bigger sales conversations and more effective solutionsHow emotional intelligence can improve prospecting effortsThe EI skills shared by top sales producersAnd much more Emotional intelligence plays a vital role at every stage of the sales process, from business development to closing the deal. When customers can get product information and price comparisons online, the true differentiator is the ability to deftly solve problems and build relationships - EI territory! ungekürzt.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Economy - Theory of Competition, Competition Policy, grade: 1,7, Aachen University of Applied Sciences, course: Struktur- und Wettbewerbspolitik, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction 1.1 The measurement of demand The measurement of demand within the mobile market can be determined by four action parameters, which operators can use: price quality service advertising The implementation for those action parameters depends on the product itself, the phase of the market, the type of company and the market form, including barriers the market offers. In my homework I will focus on the criteria price and service to give a short explanation of the so called overall concept Harvard School. Discussing this concept, the state does not interrupt any action of the market. It includes the assumption that the market will find its equilibrium itself and does not need any interferences. After giving some general information about the German mobile market, I want to present my results about the development of prices for mobile services. Furthermore, another focus should be the service that operators provide. Therefore especially the innovation of new tariffs and reaction time of the operators will be analysed. Afterwards the German mobile market will be evaluated by an international comparison. Altogether each topic that is worked out should be finally interpreted towards the measurement of competition within the market for mobile services. 1.2 Price-competition as an indicator to determine the intensity of competition As aforementioned the action parameters are divided into four main categories. This is done to isolate the effect of each action parameter concerning towards the process of competition. However, for each single company and the competition on the mobile market it is important to know about the success of the combination of all action parameters, concerning the payoff of the company, as the case may be the result on competition. Here I want to focus on the price-competition to determine the intensity of competition. Price-competition mainly guarantees the orientation of business operations, all based on the economic principal. A market with functioning price-competition can be seen as a necessary precondition to achieve all goals of competition. In reality price-competition does not contain as much relevancy as in theory, which can be explained by the analysis of different market forms (e.g. homogen polypol, heterogen polypol). Different market forms cause particular situations, where the prices for mobile services are determined. For instance, if there is a high degree of possible cost reduction, the price is influenced by that. Within other market forms the latitude of possible prices, which are generated by the operators, determine the prices of mobile services. Whereas in some cases prices can be found as a result of solidary behaviour of the operators. Furthermore, the action parameter price is not only influenced by the product itself, the phase of the market, the type of company and the market form, including barriers the market offers. It is further influenced by the amount of using this action parameter, which depends on the objectives and the behaviour of the company. Concerning the current situation of the mobile market there are only four main operators, which provide mobile services to the consumer. Because of that it seems to be logical, that the price-competition is not a sufficient precondition to measure the total degree of competition. The amplitude of possible prices for several mobile services is very low as we will see in the following analysis. Thus, an operator with very expensive services would be less competitive and loose business. Nevertheless, prices for mobile services can differ between the four operators because it is no perfect market and very difficult for the consumer to find the cheapest contract for themselves.

One renowned and frequently researched anomaly over the last two decades is the weather effect, more precisely, the impact of weather on stock market returns. The extensive literature on the weather effect fails to converge towards a unique, systematic and robust relationship between the weather, and the stock market. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to explain the contradictory results in the literature by testing whether stock prices are affected by the weather in a significantly different manner depending on the level of market development, and explaining how this difference behaves over time. In order to test for this, city-by-city, pooled and binary regressions are employed using data of 10 developed, and 10 emerging countries over the period 1996-2011 by using two different means of seasonal adjustment.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, grade: 2, Uppsala University, course: Politische Geographie und ´´Gesellschafts´´-plannung, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This essay compares different preparatory land-use plans from Uppsala län and Stockholm län in Sweden concerning topics of their traffic planning. The reason for the selection of plans from these two regions is firstly the limited possibility to compare bigger numbers of plans in this short essay and secondly the spatial nearness of them. But what is the reason to compare the traffic planning anyway? The population development, the load of the road net, the changing usage of vehicles of all kind, the traffic safety, rising energy prices, economical and environmental questions and the purpose of municipalities and the state to offer their citizens a proper possibility of mobility are only a few reasons to perform a balanced, long-sighted and sustainable planning. The main emphasis of this essay is to check if different municipalities aspire after solutions for a decreasing car use, environmental friendly concepts and how they want to regulate their objectives. Of course is such a comparison not very easy to perform, because of the different size and preconditions of the municipalities and the age of their preparatory land-use plan. The essay will at first introduce into the problem, different planning tools and the preconditions in the region, and then it will continue with a short summary of the traffic planning in each chosen land-use plan and will after that compare some main issues within the plans followed by conclusion of the results.
