    This paper examines a mixed duopoly model in which a state-owned firm competes with a joint-stock firm. The following two stages are considered. In the first stage, each firm can simultaneously and independently decide whether or not to offer lifetime employment as a strategic commitment. In the second stage, each firm simultaneously and independently chooses its actual output. The paper shows that there are two equilibrium solutions in the model.

    Loss Given Default (LGD) is one of the key parameters needed in order to estimate expected and unexpected credit losses necessary for credit pricing as well as for calculation of the regulatory Basel II requirement (BCBS, 2006). While the credit rating and probability of default (PD) techniques have been well developed in recent decades, LGD has attracted little attention before 2000s.In this paper, We compare linear regression and survival analysis models for modelling recovery rates and recovery amounts, in order to predict the LGD for unsecured consumer loans or credit cards.

    The aim of this paper is to analyze the role of the industrial revolution and the economic policies on the energy transition process of two developing Mediterranean countries: Turkey and Italy. Both countries not only have coast to Mediterranean, they also share a similar story in terms of their energy demands and industrialization in the interwar period. The study will analyze the period between the two world wars, considering the fact that times of war and depression most likely traumatize energy consumptions and economic growth and energy policies are constantly altered by wartime policies and constraints.

    Organizational setting plays an important role on the effectiveness of internal control as a mechanism to protect the organization against unwanted behavior by individuals. However, individuals find a way to commit fraud by analyzing the organization’s internal and external environment. Thus, this research paper applied document analysis methodology. The objective of the research was to find out why people commit fraud. In doing so, five Fiji Court cases were analysed using the “Fraud Triangle”, “Fraud Diamond” and the “Power” Theories. Furthermore, existing literature was referred to present the facts in a logical format. The findings indicated that potential perpetrators were influenced to be involved in the fraudulent scheme as a result of power that was exercised on them by other individuals. Moreover, the findings reconfirms the literature on fraud practices by individuals are due to perceived pressure, perceived opportunity and some way to rationalize their fraudulent act as acceptable.
