Enterprise Size, Financing Patterns and Credit Constraints in Brazil
Anjali Kumar
0821361295
Apr 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Enterprise Size, Financing Patterns, and Credit Constraints in Brazil investigates the importance of firm size with respect to accessing credit. The principal findings are that size strongly affects access to credit compared to firm performance, and other factors, such as management education, location or the industrial sector to which the firm belongs. Additional findings are that the impact of size on access to credit is greater for longer term loans and that public financial institutions are more likely to lend to large firms. Finally, financial access constraints may have a less significant differential impact across firms of different sizes than other constraints, though cost of finance as a constraint is very important.

Managing Reference Data in Enterprise Databases
Malcolm Chisholm
1558606971
Jan 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Managing Reference Data in Enterprise Databases explores technologies and techniques for managing data that's used to categorize or sort data, with emphasis on keeping it clean, consistent, and current. Reference data, in the lingo of author Malcolm Chisholm, is primarily any data that is used to categorize other data. The U.S. Postal Service abbreviations "PA" for Pennsylvania and "HI" for Hawaii are examples of reference data. Under Chisholm's definition, reference data is generally not data that exists on a remote system, or that another organization maintains. This book has an academic tone and steers clear of implementation issues that exist in particular database management systems (DBMS); it's a platform-independent engineer's handbook, full of structural diagrams, standard SQL queries, and pseudocode.
