    DOI: 10.1016/j.techfore.2019.02.004

Despite the vast amount of research on business model innovation, little is known about what decision-makers must consider while innovating access-based business models in the context of frontier markets. To address this research gap, we develop a comprehensive framework for access-based business mo...(Read Full Abstract)

Capacity Allocation among Suppliers in the Presence of Spot Market

  • Authors: Jain T., Hazra J.

    DOI: 10.1109/IEEM.2018.8607555

We consider a supply chain with two suppliers and one buyer. The buyer faces uncertain demand decides to reserve some capacity through the two suppliers. The buyer also sources the remaining capacity from the spot market if demand exceeds the reserved capacity. The suppliers have finite capacity and...(Read Full Abstract)

Consumer resilience and subservience in technology consumption by the poor

Consumer technology theorists have explored technology consumption primarily through a de-linked, individualistic lens. We augment existing theories on technology consumption by widening the scope of the theorizing lens to include the role of class-based societal domination on consumption by the opp...(Read Full Abstract)

Convergence to Walrasian equilibrium with minimal information

  • Authors: Lahkar R.
    Year: 2019 | IIM Udaipur
    Source: Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination
    DOI: 10.1007/s11403-019-00243-8

We consider convergence to Walrasian equilibrium in a situation where firms know only market price and their own cost function. We term this a situation of minimal information. We model the problem as a large population game of Cournot competition. The Nash equilibrium of this model is identical to ...(Read Full Abstract)

Developing an emic scale to measure ad-evoked nostalgia in a collectivist emerging market, India

    DOI: 10.1016/j.jbusres.2019.02.039

Although there has been recent interest in the measurement of advertising-evoked nostalgia, the dimensionality and generalizability of the related scales are restricted to the national/cultural boundaries of Western nations. In the present study, we develop an emic scale to measure ad-evoked persona...(Read Full Abstract)

Do the limit orders of proprietary and agency algorithmic traders discover or obscure security prices?

We investigate the relative roles of limit orders from proprietary algorithmic traders (PAT), agency algorithmic traders (AAT) and non-algorithmic traders (NAT) in the discovery of security prices in National Stock Exchange (NSE) of India. Our results suggest that PAT's limit orders are most informa...(Read Full Abstract)

Despite widespread recognition of trade shows as a vehicle to provide services to visitors by exhibitors, there is a paucity of research in this area of special interest. Drawing on the resource-based view, we develop a research framework to examine the effects of service-related resources on exhibi...(Read Full Abstract)

Empirical likelihood for a long range dependent process subordinated to a gaussian process

This article develops empirical likelihood methodology for a class of long range dependent processes driven by a stationary Gaussian process. We consider population parameters that are defined by estimating equations in the time domain. It is shown that the standard block empirical likelihood (BEL) ...(Read Full Abstract)

    DOI: 10.1016/j.jet.2019.03.009

We consider implementation of the efficient state in a large population public goods game. Due to positive externalities, the efficient state is different from the Nash equilibrium of the game. We apply a transfer scheme equal to the externality in the game. The externality adjusted public goods gam...(Read Full Abstract)

Excess procurement strategies by a dominant buyer under constrained supply

    DOI: 10.1002/nav.21838

Supply chains are often characterized by the presence of a dominant buyer purchasing from a supplier with limited capacity. We study such a situation where a single supplier sells capacity to an established and more powerful buyer and also to a relatively less powerful buyer. The more powerful buyer...(Read Full Abstract)

International research collaboration: Novelty, conventionality, and atypicality in knowledge recombination

Research articles produced through international collaboration are more highly cited than other work, but are they also more novel? Using measures developed by Uzzi et al. (2013), and replicated by Boyack and Klavans (2014), this article tests for novelty and conventionality in international researc...(Read Full Abstract)
