“At its core, social exchange theory is a theory of motivation that relies on non-monetary reinforcement principles among dyadic pairs of individuals seeking need fulfillment tied to their own rational self-interests (Homans, 1961).”


In a workplace, individuals have needs related to autonomy, competence, and relatedness…


According to MSU author John Hollenbeck, “It seems highly plausible that both leaders and team members serve as alternative reciprocation partners for need fulfillment in interdependent team contexts (273).” In a sample of surveys from 439 employees on 61...

Chances are you’ve seen or at least heard about the recent movie Green Book, which drew attention to a series of travel guides published between 1936 and 1966.

A new exhibit at MSU Libraries digs a little deeper into that history and offers visitors an opportunity to see a map of all 86 Detroit locations and five Lansing locations listed in nine editions of “The Negro Motorist Green Book.” The exhibit also...

Three students enjoy the MSU Library's new Short Edition Kiosk

A sweet new kiosk at the MSU Main Library dispenses stories like candy from a vending machine. Located on the main floor near the south (Red Cedar) entrance, the dispenser offers a new reading option for MSU Library users and serves as a new publishing venue for students, faculty, and staff. The kiosk provides free on-demand printing of short prose and poetry, offering users a choice of one-minute, three-minute, or five-minute stories printed on paper a bit wider than a typical receipt. Dean of Libraries Joseph Salem said the kiosk opens up new opportunities for the MSU Libraries to...

"There will be a day sometime in the near future when this guide will not have to be published." -- Victor Green, in the preface to the 1941 edition

From 1936 to 1966 Victor Green, and later his widow Alma Green, edited the Negro Motorist Green Book, which listed businesses that would serve black travelers without harassment or prejudice.  Race or ethnicity of the business owner was not a criteria for inclusion in the listings.  We examined 9 editions of the Green Book, and created a map of the 86 Detroit businesses listed.  Enjoy these interactive maps to learn more about them.  Running...

Although there’s not really any discernible agreement as to when “initialism” or acronyms first became mainstream, the somewhat frightful acronym FAMGA is certainly outperforming OTP ("One True Pairing") at the moment.


FAMGA is an acronym for Facebook Inc (FB), Apple Inc (AAPL), Microsoft Corp (MSFT), Google (GOOG) and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN), the five biggest stocks in the Nasdaq. Today, the FAMGA make up an astonishing 40% of the NASDAQ 100 company index. 


The FAMGA family phenomena is also enormously profitable. Combined, the frightful five have a market-cap of roughly $4...
