China's Unethical Economic Development Practices, Kimberly A. Madsen Aug 2019

China's Unethical Economic Development Practices, Kimberly A. Madsen

The Hilltop Review

The purpose of this research paper is to inform the public about some of the unethical economic development practices that China is performing with their citizens and global partners. These activities include escalating the national GDP at the detriment of their citizens through forced relocations in order to build new cities, dividing families with harmful public policies, and the imbalance between their citizens’ annual earnings and housing costs. Also discussed is the environmental pollution of the air, water, and soil, and poorly treating their international constituents when asked to provide consulting services to their nation.

Social Media And The C-Suite: The Ethical And Legal Implications, Toni P. Mulvaney J.D., Melissa Baldo J.D., Marleen Swerdlow J.D., Frank Cavaliere J.D.

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

The last twenty years has seen phenomenal growth of social media, with companies such as Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter seeing their registered users growing into the hundreds of millions worldwide (and, in the case of Facebook, over a billion). The advantages of using social media have been touted by many, and fortunes have been made by savvy practitioners with a deft hand at using social media to their advantage. However, as with any new technology unintended consequences have begun to unfold. These consequences have been thrust to the forefront as several high-profile corporate executives and celebrities have sabotaged their ...

The Flipped Class: Experiential Learning Manifested, Johnnie Williams, Olusegun Felix Ayadi, Carlton Perkins, Ladelle M. Hyman

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Through the “flipped class,” students are introduced to new material outside the classroom before the traditional in-class lecture occurs. Ideally, flipping the class challenges students to engage in the lower levels cognitive work (remembering and understanding) outside of class. Students, then, are free to focus on higher order cognitive work (application, analysis, synthesis, and/or evaluation) in class, where they have the support of their peers and the instructor. To drive the requisite higher order cognitive work inside the classroom, it is important that in-class teaching and learning methodologies extend beyond simple information dissemination. Experiential learning, the process of transforming ...


The Hurdles To Financing Modular Development, Daniel Feutz Apr 2019

The Hurdles To Financing Modular Development, Daniel Feutz

Cornell Real Estate Review

Revenues from the permanent modular construction (PMC) sector jumped 62% in one year to reach $3.3 billion in 2016 and its quick growth has not gone unnoticed. The industry has attracted investment from sources such as Soft Bank’s Vision Fund and Amazon’s Alexa Fund, an indication of the perceived feasibility of modular building that is further illustrated in PMC’s growing market share that increased 37% from 2014 to 2017 (Bousquin, 2019). Rising construction costs, tight labor markets, and an unprecedented demand for housing have pushed modular construction towards being one of the disruptors of an industry ...


Rising Tourism In Saudi Arabia: Implications For Real Estate Investment, Ali S. Daye Apr 2019

Rising Tourism In Saudi Arabia: Implications For Real Estate Investment, Ali S. Daye

Cornell Real Estate Review

Over the last few years, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has pursued a more aggressive approach towards economic diversification in order to plan for the future of its youth as nearly 60 percent of the country’s 3 million citizens are under the age of 30 (KSA-General Authority for Statics, 2017). Saudi Arabia traditionally has relied heavily on the public sector to absorb many of the educated Saudi nationals. However, the country is now looking to the private sector to create more jobs for its burgeoning population and has enacted policies that ease doing business in the country and ...


Modular Construction: A Solution To Affordable Housing Challenges, John Thompson Apr 2019

Modular Construction: A Solution To Affordable Housing Challenges, John Thompson

Cornell Real Estate Review

The lack of affordable housing is pervasive across the United States. It affects some locations more severely than others, with each having unique challenges. Construction and land acquisition costs are frequently cited as primary drivers of multi-family housing development, and affordability is determined by a geography’s housing costs versus its median income. This paper highlights crucial components in the connection between economic conditions, public policy, and affordable housing development. It focuses on how efficiencies in modular construction present opportunities for addressing specific challenges in Maine and will propose a strategy for public-private cooperation, particularly in the site selection process ...

Opportunity Zones And New Orleans: A Chance For Affordable Housing Growth, Wilson Blum

Cornell Real Estate Review

In the year and a half since their introduction, Opportunity Zones have quickly become one of the hottest topics in real estate development. This exciting program offers a new chance to revitalize distressed communities around the country by significantly broadening the pool of potential investors and providing them with enticing incentives to pull their money out of the market and into these locales. The success or failure of the program will hinge on the ability of public-private partnerships to bridge an often fraught line between outside investment and local community. In addition to providing an overview of the Opportunity Zone ...


The U.S. Student Housing Market: Overlooked Opportunities, Joseph A. Mcfalls Apr 2019

The U.S. Student Housing Market: Overlooked Opportunities, Joseph A. Mcfalls

Cornell Real Estate Review

Student housing has emerged in recent years as one of the most in-demand asset classes in commercial real estate. Investors, both domestic and international, have been attracted to U.S. student housing projects for many reasons, including their steady yields and reliable returns during all market cycles (The Economist, 2018). As a result, investment in and development of student housing has increased dramatically over the past few years (Brass, 2018). Even with this increased focus on the sector, opportunities still remain in the student housing industry, particularly for investors and developers with differentiated projects. This paper will examine the current ...


Tailwinds On The U.S. Gulf Coast: How The Boom In U.S. Energy Production Is Creating Opportunities For Real Estate Investment, Christopher Trahan Apr 2019

Tailwinds On The U.S. Gulf Coast: How The Boom In U.S. Energy Production Is Creating Opportunities For Real Estate Investment, Christopher Trahan

Cornell Real Estate Review

The Federal Government’s commitment to deepen the Mississippi River channel and its decision to allow the exportation of crude have created many opportunities in the U.S. Gulf Coast region for private investment and development. Yet the country’s resurgence in energy production is temporarily impeded by a lack of sufficient infrastructure necessary to match supply with demand. As the glut of U.S. crude and demand for infrastructure increases, the need for industrial facilities on the Gulf Coast continues to grow. These facilities are essential to economic development along the nation’s southern energy corridor. The real estate ...


A Taxonomy Of Coworking Space: Manhattan, Nyc, Yaoyi Zhou Apr 2019

A Taxonomy Of Coworking Space: Manhattan, Nyc, Yaoyi Zhou

Cornell Real Estate Review

The growth in the coworking inventory has accelerated over the past years, with more than 5 million square feet of new space flooding into the market in each of the past three years (Cushman & Wakefield, 2018). In 2018, over 200 coworking companies that operated in the U.S. had at least one location larger than 5,000 square feet. As competition increases, coworking markets enter periods of “specialization” in spaces of various size, business plans and clientele (Brown, 2016; Diduch, 2018), however, the lack of analysis of these characteristics make it difficult to understand the current supply of coworking space on the market.

Seoul Office Market: Occupancy Characteristics And Their Impact On Market Stability At A Global Level, Jongpil Ryu May 2018

Seoul Office Market: Occupancy Characteristics And Their Impact On Market Stability At A Global Level, Jongpil Ryu

Cornell Real Estate Review

While other major cities in the global real estate market experienced a stiff downturn after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, the Seoul office market remained very stable. Focusing on steady rent growth, this paper examines the characteristics of seventy-three office buildings in the city. The result shows three distinct features: (1) the office market, especially the manufacturing sector, is more diversified than that in other global cities, (2) the office space is chiefly occupied by local companies with a small number of foreign financial firms concentrated in the city center, and (3) Chaebols, the large family-based industrial conglomerates, constitute ...
