Economic Freedom and Foreign Direct Investment: How Different are the MENA Countries from the EU  [PDF]
iBusiness (IB) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2009.12010
Abstract: The risk perceived by investors is crucial in the decision to invest, in particular when it concerns a foreign country. The risk associated to any (foreign) investment is a multi-faceted element given that it reflects many aspects that are relevant to (foreign) investors, such as the level of transparency, corruption, rule of law, governance, etc. In this paper we consider the level of economic freedom, as provided by the “Heritage Foundation”, for the most recent years, in order to analyse how is this measure of risk related to the inward foreign direct investment performance index, as provided by the UNCTAD. Given the subjectivity of risk an appropriate methodology consists on using fuzzy logic clustering, which is applied in the paper in order to verify how different the MENA region is from the set of EU-member states. The results show that economic freedom and inward FDI are positively associated, in particular in the cluster of countries that present a higher economic freedom. Of particular interest is the result that some MENA countries belong to the same cluster of most of the EU-countries.
Strategic Innovation Planning and Partnerships: Aligning Market, Products/Services/Processes and Technologies  [PDF]
Mauro Caetano, Daniel C. Amaral
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2013.41001

There are different tools to support the innovation planning, however, the paradigm of open innovation shows that there is a need to adopt different partners in the development of technology, product, service or process, and many of the proposals in the literature ignore this theme on the innovation process. This study proposes a generic model to strategic innovation planning, especially for technology push approach. The model was developed from an action research and literature review, which includes these elements. It contains three different stages ranging from the identification of markets and possible partners to carry out a strategic plan for innovation. The application identifies the technology core of the organization and possible technology, products, services or processes to be developed. Results on the practical application of the model over different innovation processes can be objects of future research.

Paradigmas e trajetórias do processo de inova??o tecnológica em saúde
Caetano, Rosangela;
Physis: Revista de Saúde Coletiva , 1998, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-73311998000200004
Abstract: lt is imperative to understand the process of technological innovation in the health sector if we intend to act upon, and socially influence the development of new products in more desirable directions. despite the growing interest in innovation theories, knowledge of the factors that interact within the technical progress in the medical area is still scarce. this article proposes the concepts of technological paradigm, technological trajectories and dominant design as a possible theoretical-methodological outline for examining the process of medical technology development. this choice is based on the vision of multi-determination of the technical progress, recognizing the interactions of several fields of interest, such as market, scientific progress and public policies.
Práticas fotográficas, experiências identitárias: A fotografia privada nos processos de (re)constru??o das identidades
Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas , 2007,
Abstract: this paper is part of a research project developed with the goal of understanding the importance and transversality/universal dimension of common photographic practices that record people and events for later remembrance. photography is mainly perceived as an instrument of high emotional value and it is practiced with the purpose of creating memories of important and happy moments in people?s lives, usually connected with leisure, family and friends. the greatest potential of photography is/lies in its contribution to the creation of representations of what people consider to be most significant in their lives; and it is precisely in this respect that we can call it an identity instrument.
Valuing riparian forests restoration: a CVM application in Corumbatai river basin
Brugnaro, Caetano;
Revista de Economia e Sociologia Rural , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-20032010000300001
Abstract: this study is an application of cvm to a specific area in brazil, the corumbatai river basin, in the state of sao paulo, aiming to estimate the value attached by affected people to a hypothetical riparian forest restoration project. the method used was the double bounded dichotomous choice under a logit model. data were obtained by street-intercept interviews with a net sample of 930 individuals, 20 years or older, living in seven municipalities (cities and respective rural areas) that contain the basin. protest bid responses were not excluded in a first approximation, resulting in a r$ 2.06 mean willingness to pay (wtp) for the riparian forest restoration, equivalent to approximately r$ 274,000 per month (r$ 1.00 equivalent to us$ 0.52 at the survey period) when accounting for about 133,000 residences in the area. it was observed an expressive number of "no-no" responses from people ascribing the problem to government and farmers and suspecting on misuse of funds by the official agencies involved.
