However, and despite the continuous reforms, the IIVTNU still has major problems that have not been corrected. In addition, no official estimates are available on the budgetary impact of the new regulation, nor does it seem that the General State Administration will pay any kind of compensation to the municipalities for the foreseeable loss of tax collection, as it is a fiscal capacity delegated to local entities. Finally, the IIVTNU has many more collection problems than other taxes such as the Property Tax or the Business Tax. This article addresses all these limitations and proposes a set of alternatives to improve the fiscal capacity of the IIVTNU, both generally and specifically for Galician municipalities.</p> 2023-07-26T13:27:31+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela Sports celebrity endorsement impact on purchase intention 2023-12-01T14:05:54+01:00 Francisco Moreira Inês Pereira José Duarte Santos Paulo Botelho Pires <p>This research aims to study celebrity endorsement in the context of social media when done by sports celebrities and its influence on purchase intention. Four dimensions have been studied: word of mouth, brand image, brand trust, and brand attitude. By relating these variables, we seek to answer the following questions: Will consumers be influenced by a sports celebrity that they admire to buy a product/service from a brand that they support? Will the brand’s components be valued as a result of celebrity endorsement? Using a questionnaire shared on social networks, 303 valid answers have been obtained. Our statistical analysis has used a structural equation model and the results have been analyzed using SmartPLS software, which has confirmed all the model assumptions. Therefore, celebrity endorsement has an impact on brand image, word of mouth, brand attitude, and brand trust. Furthermore, it directly affects purchase intention. The effectiveness of celebrity endorsement has been verified in the context of social media and this research can thus help marketeers understand the importance of using sports celebrities to endorse brands. Implications for brands have been identified, based on the research results.</p> 2023-08-20T13:53:32+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela An Investigation of Entrepreneurial Orientation, Social Media Adoption and E-commerce on MSME Business Performance: An Empirical Study in Indonesia 2023-12-01T14:05:54+01:00 Syahmardi Yacob Urip Sulistiyo Jefri Marzal Ade Perdana Siregar Amirul Mukminin <p>The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the health, economy, and social sectors, and micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) worldwide, including in Indonesia. This paper examines the use of social media and e-commerce with an entrepreneurial orientation to enhance the business performance of MSMEs. The study should serve as a model for improving the quality of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises in the Jambi Province, in Indonesia. The research employs quantitative and qualitative approaches. The latter method employs in-depth interviews, focus group discussions (FGDs), and observation, whereas the former uses the partial least squares method (PLS). The findings and discussions conclude that social media adoption positively affected the performance and entrepreneurial orientation of MSMEs during the said period. Similarly, e-commerce positively affected the performance and entrepreneurial orientation of MSMEs. Entrepreneurialism and social media adoption had a significant impact on the performance of MSMEs, and due to its entrepreneurial orientation, e-commerce influenced the performance of MSMEs.</p> 2023-08-20T14:15:54+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela Market crises and benchmark-adjusted fund alphas in a small market context 2023-12-01T14:05:54+01:00 Fernando Lopes Paulo Leite Maria Carmo Correia Pablo Durán-Santomil <p>Most mutual fund performance evaluation studies interpret fund alphas as the incremental performance of managers in relation to passive benchmark indices, which should exhibit statistically insignificant alphas. However, if these indices present significant non-zero alphas, standard (non-adjusted) fund alphas are biased. This paper investigates the impact of using benchmark-adjusted alphas to assess the performance of Portuguese-based mutual funds, investing in domestic and European equities. For the period 2000-2020, our results show that fund benchmarks exhibit significantly negative alphas, which lead to an underestimation of mutual fund performance when employing standard models. As a result, benchmark-adjusted alphas are significantly higher than unadjusted alphas for both fund categories, though the differences are larger for domestic than for European funds. We have also found that the impact of the benchmark-adjustment procedure depends on the state of markets. The domestic (European) benchmark exhibits considerably lower (higher) alphas during crisis than during non-crisis periods. During market crises, the differences between pre- and post-adjustment alphas are statistically significant only for domestic funds, whereas during non-crisis periods, both fund categories exhibit significant performance improvements. Our findings suggest that the benchmark-adjustment procedure has a higher impact when benchmark indices exhibit higher concentration.</p> 2023-10-09T13:35:43+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela The effect of socioeconomic factors, fear of crime and social mobilization on the evaluation of judiciary decisions 2023-12-01T14:05:54+01:00 Manuel Ruiz-Adame Susana Martínez-Rodríguez Jose Antonio Posada-Pérez <p>Crimes related to sexual abuse and rape attract large social mobilizations, as happened following the assault on an 18-year-old woman at the San Fermín festival in Pamplona, Spain, by a group of men known as “la manada” (“the wolf pack” in English). Understanding how the aftermath of protests and socioeconomic factors influence the perceptions of fear of crime, safety and justice, measured as judiciary decisions, are the aims of this paper. A randomized sample collected in two periods was obtained (N=605), the first one (n1=454) performed after the judicial sentence of the case, the second (n2=151) four months later, after the social alarm had decreased. The perception of safety increased after the peak moments of the demonstrations. The trust in justice was low and fell after protesters had risen to the streets although its perception was greater among higher income earners. Hence, the perception of safety rises during social mobilizations but only improves for a short period of time whereas the effects on that of justice last for longer.</p> 2023-11-13T20:56:31+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela The historical configuration of the public and private hospital system in Spain from a territorial perspective: The case of Galicia 2023-12-01T14:05:54+01:00 Daniel Peñín Agra Margarita Vilar Rodriguez <p>Hospitals have become strategic spaces for scientific research, medical training and clinical care, as well as central axes of our health system and our welfare state. Starting from this idea, this article offers new quantitative data and proposes two basic objectives. First, to analyse which elements conditioned the historical creation of the public and private hospital map in Galicia from a comparative perspective. Second, to study the impact of the General Health Law passed in 1986 and the transfer of healthcare to Galicia in 1991 on the development of its public and private hospital system in the long term. The results obtained highlight the relevance of the territorial perspective for understanding the historical heterogeneity of our current hospital model and to provide new elements for political debate and economic analysis.</p> 2023-11-30T13:22:52+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela Ethical leadership and benevolent climate. The mediating effect of creative self-efficacy and the moderator of continuance commitment 2023-12-28T21:43:18+01:00 Carlos Santiago-Torner <p>The Colombian electricity sector needs an ethical management style associated with a work environment that supports its principles. Furthermore, self-efficacy determines individual creative will and commitment does not always have an integrating function. For this reason, this research seeks to analyze the relationship between ethical leadership and a benevolent climate through the mediation of creative self-efficacy and the double moderation of the commitment to continuity. For this purpose, a conditional model is used. The sample is 448 employees. Ethical leadership builds a habitat of autonomy and trust that leads to self-perceptions of creative self-efficacy. Likewise, personality dimensions such as openness to experience, conscientiousness, and extraversion normalize the mediating function of creative self-efficacy regarding ethical leadership and a benevolent climate and includes all three variables. Finally, the commitment to continuity favors job dissatisfaction, emotional exhaustion, and personal inadequacy, which stops the dynamic behavior that creative self-efficacy needs, and at the same time interrupts the prosocial relationships that unite the ethical leader with a benevolent climate.</p> 2023-12-01T14:05:18+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela
