B&E Working Paper Series

The B & E Working Papers Series (WPS) are pre-publication papers or reviews available electronically only and in PDF format on this website, and are in progress, under submission, or in press and forthcoming elsewhere. The main purpose of the WPS is to stimulate discussion and critical comment on a broad range of business and economic issues being researched by our faculty and their collaborators. Comments or questions about their content should be sent directly to the e-mail address of the author. The views, judgment, and findings expressed in the WPS are solely those of the authors and are not necessarily endorsed by the Department and the California University of Pennsylvania.
