Jan Muntermann presents an intraday event study that is conducted within the German capital market, and provides evidence that investors could exploit intraday stock price effects following critical market events.

Overall, the underlying idea is to provide some further basics for a public sector type of a design-oriented management science.

Potenziale des E-Commerce und E-Business ergeben sich nicht nur fur herkommliche kommerzielle Unternehmen. Auch Nonprofit-Organisationen (NPO) wie z. B. Umwelt-oder Sozialorganisationen konnen fur ihre Geschaftstatigkeit erheblich vom geziehen Einsatz der neuen Medien profitieren. Dies gilt insbesondere fur den Bereich des Fundraising. Fundraising wurde lange Zeit von NPO alleinig als ein Instrument der Mittelbeschaffung zur Finanzierung der eigenen Aktivitaten aufgefasst. Durch Einsatz des Internet besteht die Moglichkeit, die Beschaffungsfunktion des Fundraising zu einem umfassenden Beziehungs management auszubauen und damit eine neue Form der Spenderbindung an NPO zu erreichen. Diesem Themenkomplex widmet sich die vorliegende Arbeit von Bettina Hohn und sie dringt damit in weithin unerforschtes Gebiet vor. Vor dem Hintergrund eines Internet Marketing-Bezugsrahmens analysiert sie den aktuellen Stand des Internet-Marketing und -Fundraising im NPO-Bereich, entwickelt Geschaftsmodelle und gibt konkrete Gestaltungsempfehlungen. Die gesamte Arbeit profitiert von der standigen lllustration der Bezugsrahmen mit praktischen Beispielen aus der NPO-Arbeit. Hier kommen der Autorio sowohl die vielfaltigen Informa tionen aus den zahlreichen Experteninterviews als auch ihre eigene melnjahrige Berufspraxis im Feld zu Gute. Die Arbeit fugt sich hervorragend in den Forschungsschwerpunkt "Nachhaltige lnformationsgesellschaft" an meinem Lehrstuhl Produktionswirtschaft und Umwelt an der Universitat Oldenburg. In diesem Forschungsfeld ist in den letzten Jahren eine sehr engagierte und aktive Doktorandengruppe entstanden, die von den Impulsen der Autorio ganz entscheidend profitiert hat."

Chuluunbaatar Enkhzaya examines the "inadequate" behaviour of banks in Mongolia by analysing the institutional framework of the banking system, especially in lending. She focuses on the genesis of informal institutions of lending and their interaction with formal institutions of lending. Herewith, informal institutions such as the attitude to risk were indirectly observed by diagnosing the "action-regulating" knowledge of bankers. In order to ensure an effective allocation of the scarce financial resources of Mongolia the author therefore suggests a change - as simultaneous as possible - of formal and informal rules.
