The holding period distinction of the capital gains tax by Steven Kaplan( Book )
5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
United States tax law distinguishes between short-term and long-term capital gains. By taxing long-term gains at a lower rate the law creates an incentive for investors to postpone the realization of short-term gains. This study examines the lock-in effect induced by the differential tax treatment of long- and short-term gains. Analysis of data on corporate stock transactions from 1973 suggests that the lock-in effect is large and, thus, causes investors to alter their investment portfolios. The existence of such an effect is inefficient and results in a reduction in capital market efficiency. The inefficiency might be justified if there were convincing reasons which supported the existence of the holding period distinction. It is commonly argued, for instance, that eliminating the distinction would encourage short-term speculation at the expense of long-term commitment to capital. It is also claimed that this would result in a loss of revenue to the government. This study relies on IRS data and simulations using the NBER-TAXSIM file to examine the validity of these arguments. The results of this study suggest that the holding period distinction is not very effective in deterring speculation and does not increase government revenues; in fact, it may decrease them
Prisoner B-3087 : a novel by Alan Gratz( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Ten concentration camps. Ten different places where you are starved, tortured, and worked mercilessly. It's something no one could imagine surviving. But it is what Yanek Gruener has to face. As a Jewish boy in 1930s Poland, Yanek is at the mercy of the Nazis, who have taken over. Everything he has and everyone he loves have been snatched brutally from him. And then Yanek himself is taken prisoner - his arm tattooed. He is forced from one nightmarish concentration camp to another as World War II rages all around him. He encounters evil he could have never imagined but also sees surprising glimpses of hope amid the horror. He just barely escapes death only to confront it again seconds later. Can Yanek make it through the terror without losing his hope, his will, and most of all, his sense of who he really is inside? Based on the true story by Ruth and Jack Gruener

Characteristics, contracts, and actions : evidence from venture capitalist analyses by Steven N Kaplan( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
We study the investment analyses of 67 portfolio investments by 11 venture capital (VC) firms. VCs consider the attractiveness and risks of the business, management, and deal terms as well as expected post-investment monitoring. We then consider the relation of the analyses to the contractual terms. Greater internal and external risks are associated with more VC cash flow rights, VC control rights; greater internal risk, also with more contingencies for the entrepreneur; and greater complexity, with less contingent compensation. Finally, expected VC monitoring and support are related to the contracts. We interpret these results in relation to financial contracting theories
How do legal differences and learning affect financial contracts? by Steven N Kaplan( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
We analyze venture capital (VC) investments in twenty-three non-U.S. countries and compare them to VC investments in the U.S. We describe how the contracts allocate cash flow, board, liquidation, and other control rights. In univariate analyses, contracts differ across legal regimes. At the same time, however, more experienced VCs implement U.S.-style contracts regardless of legal regime. In most specifications, legal regime becomes insignificant controlling for VC sophistication. VCs who use U.S.-style contracts fail significantly less often. Financial contracting theories in the presence of fixed costs of learning, therefore, appear to explain contracts along a wide range of legal regimes

This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country's defense.

The success of acquisitions : evidence from divestitures by Steven N Kaplan( Book )
4 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This paper studies a sample of large acquisitions completed between 1971 arid 1982. By the end of 1989, acquirers have divested almost 44% of the target companies. Using the accounting gain or loss recognized by the acquirer, press reports, and the sale price, we characterize the ex post success of the divested acquisitions and consider only 34% to 50% of classified divestitures as unsuccessful. Acquirer returns and total (acquirer arid target) returns at the acquisition announcement are significantly lower for unsuccessful acquisitions than for divestitures not classified as unsuccessful arid for acquisitions not divested. These results suggest that market reactions to acquisition announcements reflect expectations of future profits and that unprofitable acquisitions are recognized as such when initiated. Diversifying acquisitions are almost four times more likely to be divested than related acquisitions. However, we do not find strong evidence that diversifying acquisitions were less successful than related ones

Private equity performance : returns persistence and capital by Steven N Kaplan( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper investigates the performance of private equity partnerships using a data set of individual fund returns collected by Venture Economics. Over the sample period, average fund returns net of fees approximately equal the S\ & P 500 although there is a large degree of heterogeneity. Returns persist strongly across funds raised by individual private equity partnerships. Better performing funds are more likely to raise follow-on funds and raise larger funds than funds that perform poorly. This relationship is concave so that top performing funds do not grow proportionally as much as the average fund. Finally, market entry in private equity is cyclical. Funds (and partnerships) started in boom times are less likely to raise follow-on funds, suggesting that these funds subsequently perform worse. Several of these results differ markedly from those for mutual funds
Food and gender : identity and power by Steven L Kaplan( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Food and Gender: identity and power" marks the inaugural volume in the "Food in history and culture" book series. The series will anthologize articles originally published in the journal "Food and foodways".; This volume examines, among other things, the significance of food centred activities to gender relations and the construction of gendered identities across cultures.; "Food and gender: identity and power" examines how each gender's relationship to food may facilitate mutual respect or produce gender hierarchy.; This relationship is considered through two central questions. How does control of food production, distribution, and consumption contribute to men's and women's power and social position? and how does food symbolically connote maleness and femaleness and establish the social value of men and women?; Other issues discussed include evaluating men's and women's attitudes about their bodies and the legitimacy of their appetites

'Outside' intervention in Japanese companies : its determinants and its implications for managers by Steven N Kaplan( file )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper estimates the determinants of appointments of 'outsiders' -- directors previously employed by banks or other non-financial firms -- to the boards of large (non-financial) Japanese companies. Appointments of both types of 'outsiders' increase with poor stock performance; those of bank outsiders also increase with negative current income. Appointments of bank outsiders are related to firm debt levels; those of corporate outsiders, to shareholder concentration and group affiliation, Both types of outsider appointments appear to be disciplinary -- top executive turnover increase substantially in the same year. Additional evidence on subsequent firm performance suggests that "bank" directors are appointed in financially distressed or contracting firms, while "corporate" directors are appointed in firms with temporary problems
