Vanguard Founder to Be Honored at Haas School Financial Reporting Conference

John C. Bogle

John C. Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group, will be honored with the Berkeley Award for Distinguished Contributions to Financial Reporting at the 17th annual Conference on Financial Reporting, to be held on Friday, October 27, at the San Francisco Marriott Hotel.

Bogle will also deliver the conference's lunch keynote, "A Tale of Two Markets," a look at earnings management and ethics in financial reporting.

A committee of accounting standard-setters, corporate financial executives, and academics selected Bogle for this award. "Mr. Bogle is an outspoken advocate of strong business ethics and an ambassador for the high quality financial reporting to which Haas is committed," says Solomon Darwin, executive director of the Haas School's Center for Financial Reporting and Management, which is presenting the conference.

Bogle is founder of the Vanguard Group, Inc., one of the two largest mutual fund organizations in the world. He is also president of Vanguard's Bogle Financial Markets Research Center. Bogle created Vanguard in 1974 and served as chairman and chief executive officer until 1996 and senior chairman until 2000. The Vanguard 500 Index Fund, the largest fund in the group and the first index mutual fund, was founded by Bogle in 1975.

In 2004, Time magazine named Bogle one of the world's 100 most powerful and influential people. He had previously been designated as one of the investment industry's four "Giants of the 20th Century" by Fortune magazine in1999. He is a recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Award from Princeton University for "distinguished achievement in the nation's service."

Bogle is the author of numerous books on investing, as well as Battle for the Soul of Capitalism, his 2005 look at corporate excess and what he sees as the misplaced priorities of mutual fund firms. His newest book, The Little Book of Index Investing: The Only Guaranteed Way to Earn Your Fair Share of Financial Market Returns, will be published in March 2007.  

The all-day conference will address several key themes, including: emerging issues in financial reporting, such as fair value and transition issues for global corporations; Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues; and complexities in financial reporting, such as principles-based vs. rules-based standards. FASB board member Thomas Linsmeier will deliver the opening address.

Delegates from China to Visit Haas to Tackle Intellectual Property Rights Issues

About 20 judges, policymakers, and enterprise executives from China are convening at the Haas School of Business on Monday, October 9, for a unique new training program on innovation and intellectual property rights.

Berkeley's new China Innovation & Intellectual Property Rights Leadership Program is aimed at strengthening intellectual property protection and enhancing innovation in the world's most populous country. The program takes advantage of close interdisciplinary collaboration at Berkeley, with classes taught by professors from the Haas School, Boalt Hall School of Law, and School of Information.

From October 9 to October 18, program participants will attend specially designed courses on intellectual property rights and innovation. The program has been organized by UC Berkeley's Center for Research on Chinese & American Strategic Cooperation, which is part of the Institute of Management, Innovation, and Organization (IMIO).

"We are pleased to assist our Chinese colleagues as they strive for a better understanding of the workings of complex intellectual property systems," says Professor David Teece, director of IMIO. "The program will be a wonderful opportunity to share perspectives and knowledge around the design and implementation of efficient and effective intellectual property regimes."

Teece, who also holds the Mitsubishi Bank Chair in International Business and Finance, is teaching a course on the origins and role of innovation and intellectual property on the first day of the program.

Courses also will include intellectual property case studies on such topics as the Beijing Olympics. The case studies were developed earlier this year and completed in China this summer by graduate students from across the Berkeley campus. The case studies were overseen by Haas faculty members Henry Chesbrough, executive director of the Center for Open Innovation, and Jihong Sanderson, executive director of the Center for Research on Chinese & American Strategic Cooperation.

After the in-class training, the delegates will join various high-level corporate executives in a closed-door discussion on October 19 to be attended by Haas School Dean Tom Campbell and Executive Associate Dean Richard Lyons, Dean AnnaLee Saxenian of the School of Information, and Dean Christopher Edley of the Boalt Hall School of Law.

"In our research we have discovered that the Chinese public misunderstands many aspects of US values and priorities, while Americans surprisingly are even less well-informed about the realities of modern China," says Sanderson. "With the program, we are creating a framework where such misunderstanding can be replaced by direct communication in order to enhance cooperation between the US and China."

From October 20 to October 26, participants will gain hands-on training as "interns" at California high-tech companies, IP management firms, law firms, and US courts. To see the campus news release, click here.

Katz and Hermalin Negative on Network Neutrality

New research by Haas Professors Michael Katz and Benjamin Hermalin sheds new light on the discussion of network neutrality, showing that legislating a single tier of Internet service could prove harmful to both low- and high-end users.

One central issue in the net neutrality debate that lawmakers sparred over earlier this summer is whether providers of "last mile" Internet access services - typically phone or cable companies - should be allowed to offer more than one grade of service. For comparison, cable companies offer different programming packages, or software companies sell standard and professional versions of their product.

Some net neutrality proponents have suggested legislation is necessary to prevent creating a two-tier Internet for the haves and have-nots. But Katz and Hermalin argue that a single tier of service - as some network neutrality proponents are seeking - could leave low-end customers completely un-served and high-end customers to consume a lower quality product. That's because a firm is likely to choose to sell a product that is both too expensive for consumers who would have otherwise consumed a low-quality version of the product and also of lower quality than some high-end customers would otherwise have purchased if they had a choice of several products.

"There are benefits of variety and these network neutrality regulations would just get rid of them," says Katz, who holds the Sarin Chair in Strategy and Leadership. "The notion that everyone gets the best possible product is just wrong."

Katz and Hermalin, the Willis H. Booth Professor of Banking and Finance, reached that conclusion in a recently released working paper titled "The Economics of Product-Line Restrictions with an Application to the Net Neutrality Debate."

In their paper, the professors formally modeled the effects of restricting product lines such as those sought by some proponents of network neutrality regulation. Their model uncovered several consequences of restricting a firm to offering only a single product:

  • Consumers who would otherwise have consumed a low-quality variant are priced out of the market. Such consumers at the bottom of the market - the ones that a single-product restriction is typically intended to aid - are almost always harmed by the restriction.
  • Consumers in the "middle" market consume a higher quality product than they would have consumed if a firm offered multiple products.
  • Consumers at the top of the market consume a lower quality product than they would have consumed if a firm offered multiple products.

"There are all sorts of unintended effects of these proposed network neutrality policies," Katz concludes. "We're hoping we can advise the rigor of the debate."

FACULTY NEWS

Professor Leland Delivers Prestigious Finance Lectures at Princeton

Hayne Leland, the Arno Rayner Professor of Finance and Management, delivered the Princeton Lectures in Finance last month, an honor that previously has been bestowed on two Nobel Prize winners.

Leland's lectures focused on structural models in corporate finance and were delivered Sept. 20, 21, and 22. The lectures were open to the public and will be published as a Princeton University Press book.

The lecture series is sponsored by Princeton's Bendheim Center for Finance, which invites a leading figure in the field of finance to Princeton each year to deliver lectures on a topic of major significance to researchers and professionals. Leland is among a small cadre of finance scholars who have been selected to give the lectures, joining the ranks of Nobel Laureates Myron Scholes and William Sharpe, both of Stanford University.

Prof. Hennessy Promoted to Associate Professor

Christopher Hennessy, a member of the Haas Finance Group, has been promoted to associate professor with tenure. Hennessy's promotion was based in part on his strong teaching record and research accomplishments, including two articles that won the Brattle Prize for outstanding corporate finance paper published in the Journal of Finance. Hennessy joined the Haas faculty in 2001 after earning his Ph.D. in economics from Princeton University.

STAFF NEWS

Andrews Assists with Reimbursement Requests

Michelle Andrews is a new faculty assistant with special responsibilities. Her position was created to process travel, entertainment, and other reimbursement requests for faculty, Ph.D. students, and graduate student instructors. In the past, the six faculty assistants handled these requests individually; now they will be routed to Andrews. She spent most of her first weeks at Haas in training, but has already assisted with expenses ranging from software licenses for faculty to soda for GSI experiments.

Andrews holds two AA's from Merritt Community College in Oakland and a bachelor's in political science from Holy Names College. She has worked for both the DMV and EBMUD, and also spent a year consulting with the Oakland School District. There she studied data from standardized tests and analyzed links between demographics and testing performance. With two sons playing high school football, one grey-shirting for San Francisco City College, and a daughter also in college, she's busy outside of work too. "I'm just enjoying them before they all leave the nest," she says.

Curry Coordinates Student Computer Lab

Chances are you already know Jeff Curry. He's been working in the Haas Computing Center for a year as a contract employee, providing computing support to staff. On September 1, he became a career employee as HCS lab coordinator. Curry is now in charge of managing the student consultants who provide technical support in the computer lab. He is also a hands-on problem-solver for students who need assistance in the lab and around Haas. "I make sure students walk away from our tech support whistling the same tune I do when grabbing the Sunday-morning paper," he says.

Prior to joining Haas, Curry realized his passion for working with computers while retrofitting a small company's network. He is currently attending Western Governors University for his bachelor's in information technology. Curry is married, with a baby boy due in December. He recently moved to Oakland and enjoys reading comics, playing guitar, and gardening. Previous lab coordinator Kristina Vera is pursuing a master's in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University.

Porter Supports Budget and Operations Team

Budget analyst Monica Porter has worked in Budget and Operations since February. She was initially hired as a limited-term employee to support the group during principal analyst Zoe Scheffy's maternity leave. Since Porter's conversion to career employee on September 8, she has continued to oversee Haas' general budget while performing duties such as reconciling accounts and maintaining charts of account for individual departments.

Porter previously spent five years in the finance office of PeopleSoft. Prior to that, she worked in budget and operations at UC Berkeley's Tang Center. The lifelong East Bay resident also graduated from Cal, earning a bachelor's degree in economics. Porter has an 18-month-old son who is enthralled by trains - particularly the cartoon character Thomas the Train. Caring for him doesn't leave a lot of free time; "right now he is pretty much my hobby," she jokes.
