Maximizer

A software program used by brokers and investment advisers. Maximizer allows users to track a client's investments and changes to the client's investment goals. It also allows users to network with other users to communicate information on market movements to each other and to clients. Maximizer also serves as a computerized central location for all of one's business files.

Second, regarding the scaling parameter s, we found a twofold difference between maximizers and satisficers.
For the sake of promoting discussion and future investigation, however, consider a linear relationship between experienced search costs and number of options, with slope = 1 for maximizers and slope <- 1 for satisficers.
Regret Scale scores were used mainly to compare the maximizer (median = 24.5) and satisficer (median =15) subgroups.
Using the nonlinear regression function of GraphPad Prism[R] 5.03 for Windows (GraphPad Software, San Diego, CA, www.graphpad.com), we derived the k values from the one-phase exponential decay equation across the maximizer and satisficer groups.
Moreover, when we applied the one-phase exponential decay model--which served as the basis for many early models of discounting--to our data, we obtained fits that accounted for 98.6% and 95.4% of the variance for the satisficer and maximizer groups, respectively.
In particular, we show that a unique ordering regarding social welfare does not exist: Leagues in which all clubs are profit maximizers dominate all other leagues; whereas, mixed leagues in which small-market clubs are profit maximizers and large-market clubs are win maximizers (type-I mixed leagues) are dominated by all other leagues.
A type-I mixed league is a league where the large-market club is a win maximizer and the small-market club a profit maximizer.
We assume that the large club 1 is a win maximizer and the small club 2 is a profit maximizer.
In this last case, we assume that the large club 1 is a profit maximizer and the small club 2 a win maximizer.
The proposition shows that a league with two profit-maximizing clubs is the most balanced league; that is, [CB.sup.PM] > [CB.sup.[mu]] for[mu] [member of] {WM, TypeI, TypeII}; whereas, a mixed league in which the large club is a win maximizer and the small club a profit maximizer proves to be the least balanced league; that is, [CB.sup.TypeI] < [CB.sup.[mu]] for [mu] [member of] {PM, WM, TypeII}.
In mixed leagues in which the large club is a profit maximizer and the small club is a win maximizer (type-II mixed leagues), the degree of competitive balance is also too low from a welfare perspective.
