  1. List of well-being indicators

    Kettner, Claudia; Köppl, Angela; Stagl, Sigrid
    This milestone presents a pool of available indicators and indicator systems which go beyond the narrow concepts of national economic accounts as well as a structuring of the indicators and indices according to central areas of well-being. The milestone builds the basis for Task 202.2, where a subset of indicators will be selected based on different theoretical frameworks, e.g. services / functionings, needs. Some of the indicators will be included in the macro-economic models in order to account for key dimensions of sustainability. (authors' abstract)

  2. Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development Through Management Development: What Can be Learned from International Service Learning Programs?

    Pless, Nicola; Maak, Thomas; Stahl, Günter
    In this article we discuss how the human resource development (HRD) function can support corporate sustainability strategy by designing and implementing leadership development programs incorporating international service learning assignments. We describe "Project Ulysses", an integrated service learning program that involves sending participants in teams to developing countries to work in cross-sector partnerships with NGOs and social entrepreneurs, supporting them in their fight against pressing global problems. We present the findings of a narrative analysis of learning stories produced by Ulysses participants.

    Spiekermann, Sarah; Korunovska, Jana; Bauer, Christine

To date, there is little information on how users value their personal information. In an online survey-based experiment 1059 Facebook users revealed how much they would be willing to pay for keeping their personal information.

  4. Exchange Return Co-movements and Volatility Spillovers Before and After the Introduction of Euro

    Antonakakis, Nikolaos
    This paper examines return co-movements and volatility spillovers between major exchange rates before and after the introduction of euro. Dynamic correlations and VAR-based spillover index results suggest significant return co-movements and volatility spillovers, however, their extend is, on average, lower in the post-euro period. Co-movements and spillovers are positively associated with extreme episodes and US dollar appreciations. The euro (Deutsche mark) is the dominant net transmitter of volatility, while the British pound the dominant net receiver of volatility in both periods. Nevertheless, cross-market volatility spillovers are bidirectional, and the highest spillovers occur between European markets. (author's abstract)
