Analyze contemporary social issues using the sociological imagination and use sociological theories and concepts to analyze everyday life

The Week 7 Homework 3 Assignment meets the following course objectives:

Apply a sociological perspective to the social world.
Analyze contemporary social issues using the sociological imagination and use sociological theories and concepts to analyze everyday life.
Recognize and define social structure and social interaction
Explain the reciprocal relationship in the influence between societal and structural factors, individual behavior and the self's development 
Develop written communication skills and critical thinking skills.
Apply American Psychological Association formatting and citation style when completing course assignments.


The purpose of this assignment is to record your life for one day and critically discuss how you are an actor in society; how you affect your social surroundings; and, how your daily life is shaped and constrained by society. This will allow you engage with many of the sociological concepts reviewed to-date including newer concepts such as impression management, stage theory and emotional labor.



Explain why you needed to perform in such a way (i.e., your motives, instincts, feelings, or structural constraints). Do you see who you are and where you are now? Write down your conclusion for this one-day life review journey.


1) Keep a journal. For one day record your life starting from the time when you wake up, to the first person you talk to, until you have finished your day and fall into bed asleep. The journal should be highly detailed Including details such as times, locations of every place you have been to (including where you start and end), people you have encountered, the 'roles' you have played facing different people and in different situations, the institutions you come into contact with (education, family, government, health, etc). Identify 'who' you were and 'where' you were in terms of what you have performed and what 'stage' you were on. Once you have completed your day, you will need to type your journal and include it at the end of your write-up. (the journal does not count towards you page count)



2) Analyze your day: After your day of journaling, you will use your typed journal to write a 3-6 page review of a day in your life (in essay format), using at least 8 sociological concepts (identified, defined, and analyzed) covered in this course to discuss:

– details about your day from a sociological perspective (eg. roles, institutions, interactions, impression management, stage theory, emotional labor)

– explanation of why you needed to perform in such a way in each of the settings you encountered (i.e. your motives, instincts, feelings, and/or structural constraints)

– a macro sociological analysis of 'who you are' and 'where you are' in society

– your conclusion for this one-day life review journey






The paper should be typed, double-spaced, 11-point font, 1″ margins. Both the write-up and your typed journal should be saved as ONE document with page numbers. Remember to include a citation for any resources referenced, in proper APA format, and make sure your name is on your paper.

Executive compensation
EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION(15 000 words)

GUIDELINES
1)      A CRITICAL REVIEW AND SYNTHESIS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION LITERATURE.(30% OF DISSERATION MARKS)
Following areas should be covered as part of their review.
·         The theatrical links between executive compensation and incentives within the context of agency theory , including how theatrical concepts of executive’s incentives are translated into empirical measures.
·         The empirical challenges in disentangling the causes and effects of equity-based incentives
·         The empirical evidence regarding the design and economic effects of different executive compensation structures.
·         While the review should cover the classic papers in executive compensation, depending on the particular research question addressed, differences in compensation arrangements in banks should be highlighted and related evidence described.
·         Also, it might be necessary to touch on evidence on international differences in CEO pay and review important regulations relating to executive compensation in countries that will be examined in the dissertation.
2)      LARGE SAMPLE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS (35% OF DISSERTATION MARKS): The analysis is intended to compare the executive compensation across different industries and/or different countries.
Examples research questions include.
·         How does executive compensation vary with different firm characteristics (investment opportunity set, firm risk, profitability etc.)?
·         How does compensation differ between non-financial industries and banks?
·         How did equity-based incentives affect the risk taking and/or performance of banks?
·         MARKS WILL BE AWARDED FOR THEORETICAL SOUNDNESS AND ORIGINALITY
3)      SMALL SAMPLE ANALYSIS: AN ANALYSIS OF EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENTS IN INTERNATIONAL BANKS (35% OF DISSERTATION MARKS) : Examine a small sample of annual reports of largely publicly listed banks from two or more countries and collect data on CEO compensation, firm and board characteristics. The objective is to compare executive pay levels and pay structure of banks from different countries. In doing this, difference in governance/executive compensation regulations should be taken into account.
Examples of research questions are
·         Are there substantial international differences in pay levels and pay structure?
·         What drives differences in pay levels and structure in international banks (eg firm characteristics, ownership structure, board characteristics)?
THE DISSERTATION SHOULD CONTAIN ALL 3 SECTIONS AND SHOULD REFLECT ORIGINAL THINKING AND ANALYSIS . LACK OF INDEPENDENCE, PLAGIARISM AND RELIANCE ON UNATTRIBUTED DIRECT QUOTATION FROM SOURCE MATERIAL WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
