Preface
Dear Reader,
We present you with the 35th edition of the Journal of Management and Financial Sciences.
We hope that its content will make a valid contribution to the development of economic thought and contribute to a deeper understanding of complex issues discussed in it. We also hope that the next issue of JMFS will be an interesting reading for researchers as well as practitioners of economic life.
The first paper by Wojciech Paprocki discusses a comparative analysis of two cases. It helped to conclude that to be commercially successful in a digital economy one needs a virtual platform operator capable of finding a business model attractive to all operators in a selected market segment.
Iwona Franczak in the next article discusses local government finances in Poland and the scope of budget implementation statements taking into consideration literature analysis and regulations interpretation.
The aim of the next paper by Aneta Kosztowniak is to analyze changes of inward and outward foreign direct investments (FDI) stocks in Poland in the years 1994–2016 in the light of the theory of J. H. Dunning`s investment development path (IDP).
Elżbieta Wrońska-Bukalska in her paper tries to identify the relation between managerial overconfidence, managerial power and dividend decisions.
Krzysztof Opolski, Joanna Podgórska and Małgorzata Leśniowska-Gontarz in their paper describe one of the most popular methods of estimating the efficiency of health facilities – DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis). They highlight its practical and important role in examining the efficiency of health facilities.
In the last paper Marzenna Dębowska-Mróz, Ewa Ferensztajn-Galardos, Renata Krajewska and Andrzej Rogowski present their method of vehicle occupancy measurement based on the analysis of the bus drivers’ opinions. The results of the surveys carried out in households were also presented, thanks to which the motivation behind source-destination journeys of the inhabitants of Radom with the use of public transport was analyzed as well.
We wish you a pleasant reading.
