Standards, monitoring, evaluation, performance measurements and accountability in providing contracted child care and protection in British Columbia : a research paper by Robert A Whitelaw( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British Columbia Ministry of Social Services obtains most of its child welfare help through contracts with agencies, contractors, foster parents, and individuals providing special skills and experience. Contract arrangements are based largely on the traditional model of contracting at the lowest price and then maintaining an arm's-length relationship with the contractors. This paper studies the need for standards in social service contracting and begins with a review of the history of efforts to develop and implement standards for Ministry contracting. Issues are identified relating to weaknesses in standards, monitoring, evaluating, and correcting child welfare and protection in the province, and recommendations for reform are made. Specific issues considered include accountability, quality assurance, implementation of standards, enforcement, and staff professionalism and discretion to make decisions

Essays on asset pricing : trading behavior, information spillover and microstructure order flow by Zheng Sun( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Price movement is one of the central themes of asset pricing. This dissertation consists of three essays investigating critical factors that drive price movement, focusing on the role of institutional investors. The first paper studies how trading behavior affects price movement and documents the role of institutional clienteles in comovement. It reveals that stocks comove more than their fundamentals would suggest, and a major driver of this excess comovement is correlated institutional trading patterns. The second paper concerns what drives price movement from the angle of cross-market information spillover. This paper finds institutional investors who buy commercial loans outperform their peers in the stock market. Moreover, it suggests that the release of private information in loan renegotiations may lead to speculative trading patterns in the equity market. This trading behavior helps superior information to be transmitted from the loan market to the equity market. In the third paper, the price formation process is studied from a microstructure point of view. The paper proposes an econometric model to estimate volatility using tick-by-tick data. It shows that both duration and bid-ask bounce are informative in estimating realized volatility. This suggests microstructure order flow is also an important driver of price movement. Taken together, this dissertation improves our understanding on price movement from three different perspectives. The results have important implications for asset management, as well as market regulation
Momentum trading, volatility feedback, and the distribution of stock returns by Abhishek Mistry( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Priced risk and asymmetric volatility in the cross-section of skewness. We investigate the sources of skewness in aggregate risk-factors and the cross-section of stock returns. In an ICAPM setting with conditional volatility, we find theoretical time series predictions on the relationships among volatility, returns, and skewness for priced risk factors. Market returns resemble these predictions; however, size, book-to-market, and momentum factor returns show alternative behavior, leading us to conclude these factors are not priced risks. We link aggregate risk and skewness to individual stocks and find empirically that the risk aversion effect manifests in individual stock skewness. Additionally, we find several firm characteristics that explain stock skewness. Smaller firms, value firms, highly levered firms, and firms with poor credit ratings have more positive skewness
