TL;DR: In this paper, it is argued that the analytical comparison of gambling regulatory frameworks across jurisdictions requires the identification of salient dimensions to provide the basis for such, and that governmental "conflict of interest" might provide a useful dimension for such comparison, as operationalised by concomitant EGM harm and government dependence criteria.
Abstract: It is argued that the analytical comparison of gambling regulatory frameworks across jurisdictions requires the identification of salient dimensions to provide the basis for such. It is further suggested that governmental ‘conflict of interest’ might provide a useful dimension for such comparison, as operationalised by concomitant EGM harm and government dependence criteria. The same ‘conflict of interest’ criteria are then suggested as a guide for gambling regulation within single jurisdictions, this being named the ‘Public Accountability Approach.’ These points are discussed within broader reference to lines and webs of harm production within a public health analysis. Broader reference is also made to the proper role of government within contemporary democracy.

  • ...In her research on the principles underpinning Local Government management, Dempsey (2005) brings into question the usefulness of mission/value statements in providing information about the operations of local governments (pp.5, 6). She states that, in the public sector, the trend is to copy the business world in this practice, resulting in lengthy list of values: “The Australian Public Service has 15 values written into the Public Service Act (1999) including the ‘value’ that the APS has the highest ethical standards and...

TL;DR: Despite the common believe that people behave in line with their guiding principles, the findings suggest this might not be the case in cultural contexts that put a strong emphasis on norms.
Abstract: Objective Ample research documented the effects of guiding principles in people's lives, as reflected in personal values, on a variety of behaviors. But do these principles universally guide behaviors across all cultural contexts? To address this question, we investigated the effect of cross-cultural differences in the strength of social norms (i.e., tightness-looseness) on value-behavior relationships. Method Using the archival data from the World Value Survey for 24 nations (N = 38,924; 51.40% female; Mage = 44.98, SD = 16.87), a multi-level analysis revealed that cultural tightness moderated the effects of individual differences in personal values on behaviors from different life-domains. Results As hypothesized, the relationships between self-transcendence values with civic involvement and pro-environmental behaviors, and between conservation values with religious behavior were significantly stronger in loose cultures that have weak norms and were almost nonexistent in tight cultures that have strong norms, even when controlling for individualism-collectivism or GDP. Conclusions Thus, despite the common belief that people behave in line with their guiding principles, our findings suggest this might not be the case in cultural contexts that put a strong emphasis on norms.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors argue that values are important building blocks of culture and that the values that contribute to synergetic (as against "soft") work culture may be manifested both at the abstract level (myth, symbol, codes of relationship, and modes of expression, etc.) and at the concrete level (dress, food, language, and art forms, etc.).
Abstract: It is argued, in spite of popular belief that the notions of values and culture are of a rather fossilised nature and things are better left to the past or at best be used for historical enunciation, that the concepts are very much relevant to the present day and modern organisations. The author argues that values are important building blocks of culture. The values that contribute to synergetic (as against "soft") work culture may be manifested both at the abstract level (myth, symbol, codes of relationship, and modes of expression, etc.) and at the concrete level (dress, food, language, and art forms, etc.). The author emphasises upon the need for creating the value-based organisations in modern times as opposed to the traditional organisations that should be treated as things of past. Some Indian thoughts and experiences from the corporate houses are used to furnish a platform for creating effective and enduring culture-based organisations relevant for today.
