"The partial adjustment valuation approach with stochastic and dynamic speeds of adjustment to evaluating and measuring the business value of IT" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the DSI Annual Meeting, Sheraton Seattle Hotel, Seattle, Washington, Nov 21, 2015 <Not Available>. 2019-11-15 <>

Abstract: This paper proposes to develop the partial adjustment valuation approach in which the speeds of adjustment are assumed to be stochastic and dynamic, rather than constant, to evaluating the value of information technology. An application is undertaken to demonstrate and illustrate how the proposed approach is applied in practice.

Abstract: This paper investigates the politics of trade adjustment assistance – the provision of income, training and relocation assistance for workers losing their jobs due to trade openness. We develop and test the argument that such assistance might have a politics distinct from the politics of welfare and trade policies with which it overlaps. First, we argue that imperfect substitutability between trade adjustment assistance and trade protection, combined with the political linkage between adjustment assistance and trade liberalization, encourages strategic position-taking among voters as well as policymakers. The result is that opposition to trade liberalization tends to weaken support for trade adjustment assistance among individuals who, owing to their economic circumstances, stand to gain the most from such assistance. Second, we argue that left (liberal) self-identification and partisanship reflect normative values and causal beliefs that are partly independent of economic self-interest and are strong predictors of individual support for trade adjustment assistance. These arguments find empirical support in the history of lobbying and legislative bargaining over the U.S.Trade Adjustment Assistance program since 1962, and in more extensive analysis of data on individual attitudes towards trade adjustment assistance among American voters.

Abstract: Asian American adolescents are often depicted as academically successful but psychologically distressed, a pattern known as the achievement/adjustment paradox (Lee and Zhou, 2014). With numerous studies documenting the extraordinary academic accomplishments of Asian American students, and a growing body of research looking into psychological maladjustment in the same population, the literature seems to support the existence of such a paradox on the aggregate level (Qin, 2008). However, between-individual differences and within-individual changes among Asian American students have been overlooked. That is, it remains unclear whether there are different subgroups of Asian American adolescents who show different adjustment patterns, and whether there is a specific subgroup exhibiting the paradoxical pattern, with the characteristic combination of high academic achievement and poor psychological adjustment. In addition, further research is needed to determine whether and how Asian American adolescents' adjustment patterns change during their transition from early adolescence, through middle adolescence, and into emerging adulthood – and, more importantly, how early contextual factors (e.g., parenting at early adolescence) may set adolescents on different paths.

Data were drawn from a three-wave longitudinal study of 444 Chinese American families. Among the participating families, 350 families participated in Wave 2 four years later, and 330 families participated in Wave 3 eight years later. Slightly over half (54%) of the adolescent sample is female. Adolescents’ age ranged from 12 to 15 (M = 13.03, SD = 0.73) years old at Wave 1.

Latent transition analyses (Collins & Lanza, 2010) were used to capture both stability and change in the subpopulations. Measures included school-reported GPA, school engagement, hours studying on a typical week, depressive symptoms, and parent-child sense of alienation. We identified three distinct patterns of Chinese American adolescent adjustment in early adolescence, middle adolescence, and emerging adulthood: the well-adjusted group, which was the largest, exhibited high achievement and low psychological distress; the poorly-adjusted group exhibited poor achievement and moderate distress; and the paradox group exhibited relatively high achievement and high distress. Regarding the stability and change within individuals across the three waves, we identified six patterns: stable well-adjusted (38%), stable paradox (15%), stable poor (2%), improved (22%), declined (18%), and changing without a clear trend (5%). Adolescents with supportive parents were more likely to stay well-adjusted, and those with “tiger” parents were more likely to stay in the stable paradox group over time. These relationships were similar across parent education levels.

Our study, which adopted a person-centered approach, is one of the first to identify subgroups of adolescents with distinct developmental patterns of adjustment in a Chinese American population. Of particular interest is that we were able to identify a “paradox” group, thus providing support for the aggregate-level “academic\adjustment paradox” observed in studies of Asian American adolescents. We also note that tiger parenting is most closely associated with this “academic/adjustment” paradox, and recommend supportive parenting as the most beneficial parenting profile for producing children who exhibit stable, well-adjusted patterns over time.

Abstract: This study analyzes a specific manifestation of individual adjustments associated with the implementation of a document imaging and a customer service database system: how the physical landscapes of users' desktops change. While the participants had different job functions and different levels of comfort with technology, all had on their desktops paper artifacts related to the change in the system. Many of these items were placed on or around their computer monitors, and were used as reminders, process summaries, indicators of system failures of poor interface design, or temporary, transitional information. Individuals were often reluctant to dispose of paper related to the old system even though they no longer used the system to process information. More generally, conceptual analyses identified several underlying dimensions of paper desktop artifacts: paper/electronic, materiality/complexity, forms as organizational media, and artifact as meta-information. Physical desktop artifacts play a useful role in individuals' adjustment to a new system, can provide valuable information for systems analysis and evaluation, and should be included in research on both traditional and new communication and information systems.
