There are only very few studies, which investigate the impact of research in business has on the actual research field.
In other fields the impact is easily seen. Without research there would be no modern medicine, without research there would be no buildings rising 800m and more.
But where would business be without research in the business and economics sciences?... Read more »

The demand of many products is connected to the weather patterns during and before the selling season. Ice cream can be best sold during warm summers, of course. But also other food products or clothes exhibit weather dependent demand pattern.
This article by Chen and Yano (2010) has a look at improving contracting between a manufacturer of a product with weather dependent demand and its retailer. One is for sure: uncertain demand causes negative effects for the whole supply chain, and should be handled as such. The full paper can be downloaded here.... Read more »
