Abstract

Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Rudolf Sallinger Preis und dem Preis der Dr. Maria Schaumayer-Stiftung ausgezeichnet.
Die am Institut für Handel & Marketing der Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien verfasste Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem bisher in der Handelswissenschaft vernachlässigten Betriebstyp Vending, dem Verkauf von Waren über Automaten. Eine umfassende Aufarbeitung des Vending nach terminologischen, historischen, marktrelevanten und betriebstypenspezifischen Aspekten zeigt, dass Konsumenten bei der Automatenverwendung Convenience als wichtige Größe erachten. An eine theoretische Beschäftigung mit Convenience schließt eine kombinierte qualitative und quantitative Untersuchung des Konstrukts im empirischen Teil der Arbeit an. Die Ergebnisse der empirischen Untersuchung bestätigen die große Bedeutung von Convenience beim Vending und sind als Empfehlung für die Betreiber von Automaten gedacht, entsprechende Maßnahmen zur Erhöhung der Convenience ihrer Automaten zu ergreifen.

Abstract

In economics, the voluntary sector is surprisingly understudied. In order to fully understand economics, unpaid and voluntary work needs to be taken into account and afforded the same status as paid activities. This book constitutes a rigorous economic analysis with special emphasis on gender issues and covers every conceivable angle of unpaid work and all its ramifications for the modern economy. The unified vision offered by this group of leading contributors ensures this book is a work of excellent quality. There is every chance it will become a seminal study on unpaid work and as such will provide a useful reference for students and academics involved in gender studies, econometrics, and consumption studies.

Abstract

This open access book examines the magnitude, causes of, and reactions to white-collar crime, based on the theories and research of those who have uncovered various forms of white-collar crime. It argues that the offenders who are convicted represent only ‘the tip of the iceberg’ of a much greater problem: because white-collar crime is forced to compete with other kinds of financial crime like social security fraud for police resources and so receives less attention and fewer investigations. Gottschalk and Gunnesdal also offer insights into estimation techniques for the shadow economy, in an attempt to comprehend the size of the problem. Holding broad appeal for academics, practitioners in public administration, and government agencies, this innovative study serves as a timely starting point for examining the lack of investigation, detection, and conviction of powerful white-collar criminals.

Crafting wings out of wax and poems from the underground, Zeus and the Giant Iced Tea is a dreamlike voyage through poetic narrative format, blurring the line between poetry and fiction. Exploring the frenetic lives of Mexican cowboys, robots, sultans, Greek gods, and convenience store clerks, Zeus and the Giant Iced Tea shatters preconceived notions of poetry and instead offers a more accessible strain of literary free flow.
