This paper presents a study comparing the effectiveness of accounting-based and market-based models predicting financial distress. We examine various periods, including events from the 1970s to the 1990s, the impact of COVID-19, and the effect of APRA. Our findings demonstrate that an accounting-based distress model performs similarly to the market-based model of defaults. Furthermore, when we combine both sources of information, the resulting model outperforms either individual model. These results suggest that accounting and market-based information are mutually reinforcing when assessing distress levels in pricing.
As the aging of population and the lack of sufficient funds for a comfortable retirement life, saving for retirement is becoming increasingly important. People’s decisions about retirement savings are influenced by cognitive biases and heuristics, such as loss aversion. This paper examines the impact of loss aversion on pension savings in China. China’s pension reserves are slightly insufficient, and defined-benefit schemes put pressure on the government and fail to enable people to maintain their original standard of living after retirement. Therefore, this paper proposes the inclusion of save more tomorrow and annuities to address these problems. This paper also suggests simplifying the process of increasing pension savings, choosing an appropriate retirement savings rate, and diversifying investment portfolios. It highlights the need for individuals and policymakers to plan and prepare for demographic change and the impact of loss aversion on retirement savings. Recommendations are made to improve retirement savings to ensure a secure and sustainable future for all.

The aviation service market has become increasingly competitive in recent years, and airlines are constantly seeking new ways to attract more customers and improve their market share. One effective method of assessing customer satisfaction is through evaluating the quality of airline services. In this paper, the target is to explore the influence of various airline services to customer satisfaction. The study identified four key service types that have a significant impact on customer satisfaction.

The article examines the reasons for the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank by analyzing a number of articles from the same period. In discussing the causes of failure the article focuses on the allocation of its own resources and the types of bank customers. Through a combination of internal and external discussions, some recommendations on asset allocation and customer selection can be given to future banks in similar situations. This article argues that it is essential for the bank's top management to use foresight and keen analysis when making decisions. In terms of customer base, a diversified customer base can hedge many risks. This is one of the innovative aspects of this paper, preventing problems caused by external factors by changing internal factors. In addition to this, banking institutions need to have a study of investments, and an analysis of national policies is also essential, especially in these particular circumstances.

The combination of marketing and supply chain management can maximize the benefits of enterprises. However, this method is not very common in all enterprises nowadays, mainly due to the unattainable coordination ability and flexible supply chain. It is already known that the factors limiting the flexibility of the supply chain are basically related to its three key links: procurement, operations and logistics. This paper assumes a positive relationship between sales revenue and operating cost and obtains their relationship through linear regression analysis and correlation analysis on Carnival Corporation & Plc’s worldwide data from 2008 to 2022. Finally, positive relationships were found and confirmed, as well as highly correlated results. The results show that the factor restricting the supply chain to achieve better marketing response lies in cost control. Better operating costs and logistics costs can achieve better sales revenue and profit sources.
Technological innovation is a crucial element and driving force behind the advancement of economic development. The two-way fixed effects model is used in this research to investigate how technological innovation influences economic development. The research period spans from 2011 to 2020 and includes 30 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous areas in China. The data used are from China’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBSC). The empirical analysis led to the following conclusions: Economic development and technological innovation have a significant positive association; the higher the number of patents granted in a city’s technological innovation output, the better the regional economic development. Technological innovation significantly and positively affects economic development in both the Eastern and Western areas. However, in terms of economic growth and technical innovation in China, the western area lags behind the eastern region. The government should increase financial investment and policy support in technology innovation and strengthen financial and tax support for new science and technology industries.
Co-branding is one of the most popular marketing models used by most well-known brands in recent years to attract the attention of a large number of consumers and to stimulate their desire to buy. The essence of co-branding is to create new products through collaboration, often with the characteristics and labels of both parties. Through a partnership model where both parties cooperate with each other, it is easier to break the stereotype about the brand image and expand the consumer market, thus increasing the commercial value of the brand and product. In recent years, Holiland has conducted co-branded marketing with different brands and celebrities, which has achieved a complementary overlay of consumer groups and inspired customer resonance through the integration of resources. In this paper, the author explores the strategy of Holiland's co-branding marketing and analyses the positive and negative impacts of co-branding on Holiland's brand marketing by means of a questionnaire survey. The study finds that the transfer of emotional value generated by co-branding promotes the effective complementarity of both consumer groups, but too frequent brand crossover may bring some negative effects, therefore, Holiland can be more flexible in future co-branding marketing by using a variety of marketing models, choosing suitable co-branding partners, and giving advance publicity. In addition, Holiland can pay further attention to the value of co-branded products and consider the introduction of localized marketing.

Both individual and institutional investors are affected by investor sentiment to varying degrees. Based on this, the research theme for this paper is the interaction between investor sentiment and the market for stocks. It begins with defining and quantifying the idea of investor sentiment and then analyzes how investor sentiment and the market for stocks are related, including stock market yield, stock price crash risk, and stock market bubble aspects. It is found that the definition of investor sentiment mostly revolves around the perspectives of "expectation" and "deviation", and the quantitative indicators of investor sentiment are mainly divided into three parts: objective, subjective, and network big data. Investor sentiment is highly predictive of changes in stock market yields in the short term, and high investor sentiment is more likely to lead to stock price crash risk or stock market bubbles. Finally, this paper points out the shortcomings of existing research, and puts forward the future prospects of relevant research conclusions, so as to provide a reference for subsequent scholars to conduct research on investor sentiment and the stock market.
