After an in-depth review of the scientific literature dedicated to (small) business failure causes (Crutzen and Van Caillie, 2008), it comes out that mismanagement is, by far, the failure cause which is the most commonly evoked by previous researchers (Argenti, 1976; Wichman, 1983; Newton, 1985; O'Neill and Duker, 1986; Thornhill and Amit, 2003). Nevertheless, the concept of « mismanagement » is relatively vague and large (Bruno et al., 1987; Sheldon, 1994). It is thus now necessary to clarify it if one wants to better understand the causes of small business failure and, in fine, to better prevent this phenomenon (Argenti, 1976). In particular, it is essential to distinguish between the main categories of managerial problems small businesses can be faced to in order to be able to better anticipate their failure (thanks to adequate trainings, for example) and in order to propose adequate remedies to specific managerial problems small distressed firms are confronted to. In this context, the current article identifies, on the basis of two complementary statistical analyses, three specific patterns for badly-managed firms, amongst a sample of 91 small distressed firms.

“Poor people are never right”. In Benin, most citizens are rather skeptical towards their justice system. Common discourses and representations often depict notaries as forging wills; lawyers as likely to spin out a case to their own advantage. Judges are portrayed as corrupt and their clerks as too poorly paid to withstand the same "temptations". And yet Beninese state courts are constantly utilized. In 2005, 7,530 civil cases were introduced before the various first degree courts of Benin, 11,367 of them in 2010.This is why rather than concentrating on state bureaucrats and their practices, I chose to focus on the customers, their perception of public service and what use they ultimately make of it. As a striking example, inheritance disputes, although entrenched in family dynamics and witchcraft threats, are constantly brought up before the jurisdictions. I will therefore try and understand the processes of those families who decide to “refer to the state” in inheritance conflict cases. I will first focus on what happens “before the law” and on family negotiations. Why do these fail and what are the reasons justifying – or delaying – legal action? I will then overview people’s experiences of Beninese public services, wondering about the access and cost of justice. I will focus on the end result, and on the customers’ satisfaction towards this constantly criticized, yet also increasingly mobilized bureaucracy. Eventually, I will analyze people’s discourses regarding Justice and the State, all of which using both participant observation in Court and interviews with family members and judiciaries. In other words, I will focus on legal consciousness within Beninese families, on how the laws and the institutions supposed to be enforcing them are perceived, experienced and utilized. [less ▲]

The objective of the present study was to determine the proportion of adults meeting national recommendations for food and nutrient intake and to identify the demographic, socio-economic and behavioural factors that may contribute to weaken dietary compliance. ORISCAV-LUX is a cross-sectional study that took place in Luxembourg (2007-8). A representative stratified random sample of 1352 adults aged 18-69 years participated in the nationwide cardiovascular health survey. A FFQ was used to estimate food intake. Radar charts were built to compare graphically the compliance of the participants with different key dietary guidelines on the same set of axes. The thirteen food- and nutrient-based recommendations were scored and summed to create a recommendation compliance index (range - 0.5 to 14). Ordinal logistic regression analyses were performed to determine the factors contributing to poor dietary compliance. Several food- and nutrient-based guidelines were insufficiently respected compared with others. The greatest gaps occurred in the adherence to grain and dairy product consumption guidelines, as well as to total fat and notably to SFA recommendations. Age, country of birth, economic status, smoking status and subject's awareness of the importance of balanced meals emerged as independently associated with weak dietary compliance. Obese subjects conformed more to dietary recommendations compared with normal-weight subjects. The findings underscore the need for specific nutrition education messages along with targeted interventions. Efforts should be continued to increase population awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. [less ▲]
