18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Public Lecture: Identifying and profiting from the vacation schedules of major company CEOs : Professor David L. Yermack Website | More Information
What happens when chief executives go on vacation? In this lecture, New York University Stern School of Business Professor David Yermack will show how to identify vacations of CEOs by tracking movements of their corporate jets to leisure destinations where they own property. CEOs tend to announce favourable news for investors just before leaving and just after returning from vacation. While they are away, companies disclose little information, stock prices behave quietly with lower volatility than usual, and companies are more likely to miss regulatory deadlines for disclosing news. All of these patterns create trading opportunities for investors. The data show that even in very large organisations, the absence or presence of a single individual can affect daily operations.

About the Speaker:

Professor David L. Yermack is the Albert Fingerhut Professor of Finance and Business Transformation at New York University Stern School of Business, a position he has held since 2009. He specialises in executive compensation, executive stock options, boards of directors, corporate finance, corporate governance, sports economics and law and finance. His works are widely published in top journals in the field, including Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Finance, and Journal of Law, Economics, and Organizations.

12:00 - Art Exhibition - The Art of Zhen Shan Ren : (Free admission) Website | More Information
In a confused world still tainted by a gross abuse of humanity, 18 artists have found a peaceful yet powerful way to express their wish for the end to the largest humanitarian concern in the world today through a return to traditional culture and values.

The artists in this exhibition are painting from their conscience and understanding of the greater good. Their works range widely, from placid inner visions to social realities, and combine to provide a unique window into one important (and often untold) part of the current chapter in Chinese history. The artworks tell the story of the tens of millions of practitioners of Falun Gong, an ancient meditation practice that is currently brutally persecuted by the Chinese communist regime. The paintings touch on the deeper levels of human dignity and freedom, and depict the modern triumph of good over evil.

"Our art comes from a pure heart and our work reflects our personal experience. Art is able to greatly influence the way people think and it also directly connects with human morality. The two interact." – Professor Zhang Kunlun, founder of The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition

The exhibit encompasses four main themes: harmony, adversity, courage and justice. It is art that aspires to inform and educate, to inspire and transform, to change and reshape. The Art of Zhen Shan Ren tells the true stories of those who uphold universal values and freedom, stories from which we can all learn valuable lessons and strengthen our awareness of what is truly important. The unique quality and significance of this exhibit serves to both inform and culturally enrich.

18:00 - SCREENING - Pre-release Screening : Free China, the Courage to Believe Website | More Information
“INTENSELY COMPELLING…EXTRAORDINARY.” Karen Curry- Former CNN Bureau Chief New York

The fates of a woman living in Beijing and a man living in New York become inextricably linked because of a common conviction…

The multi-award winning “Free China: The Courage To Believe” tells the story of a mother and former Communist Party member, Jennifer Zeng, who along with more than 70 Million Chinese were practicing a belief that combined Buddhism and Daoism until the Chinese Government outlawed it. The Internet police intercepted an email and Jennifer was imprisoned for her faith. As she endured physical and mental torture, she had to decide: does she stand her ground and languish in jail, or does she recant her belief so she can tell her story to the world and be reunited with her family? A world away, Dr. Charles Lee, a Chinese American businessman, wanted to do his part to stop the persecution by attempting to broadcast uncensored information on state controlled television. He was arrested in China and sentenced to three years of re-education in a prison camp where he endured forced labor, making amongst other things, Homer Simpson slippers sold at stores throughout the US.

As political scandals surface and tensions rise along with more than one hundred and fifty thousand protests occurring each year inside China, this timely documentary highlights the issue of unfair trade practices with the West, organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience and widespread forced/slave labor. The film also highlights how new Internet technologies are helping bring freedom to 1.3 billion people in China and other repressive regimes throughout the world.

“Free China” is a co-production between NTD Television, and World2Be Productions. It is scheduled for worldwide theatrical and online release in June 2013.

Special Private Screenings Include: The US Congress, European Parliament, Google Headquarters.

BOOK PUBLICATION Globalisation Revisited: A Global Phenomenon under the Microscope Globalisation has become one of the watchwords of the latter Twentieth and early Twentieth First century. Whilst globalisation is written and talked about in a general sense this book seeks to take stock and reflect on the `era of globalisation’ through a series of regional case studies aimed at elucidating examples of globalisation in action. The book will begin with an attempt to define ‘globalisation’ as well as to give a brief history of the theoretical nature of globalisation along with schools of thought about the nature and purpose of the topic. It will also present a brief explanation of how globalisation itself has inadvertently assisted those individuals and organisations who are committed to containing or curtailing that which they refer to as globalisation.

ABRM announces a Call for Papers for the publication of a book entitled Globalisation Revisited: A global phenomenon under the microscope to be edited by Professor P.R.Banerjee and Dr P.R.Datta. Interested authors are invited to contribute chapter(s) in the book. For further details please click here
