This study examine variables determinant of banks' capital structure based on predictions of the trade-off theory and the pecking order theory. Using a dynamic model estimated the average speed of adjustment towards the target leverage approximately 46 percent per year. Variables that generally tested as determinants of the capital structure of non-financial corporations are also significantly explained the bank's capital structure, ie growth opportunities, firm size, and collateral value of assets. In general, the trade-off theory is more powerful in explaining the bank's capital structure than the pecking order theory.
This paper studies the problematic of home and family among the African American community in Beloved by Toni Morrison and Of Love and Dust by Ernest Gaines. Set in the 1850s southern America, both narratives relates the systems of slavery and racial discrimination that condemned the African American community, in many ways, in conditions which denied them a true home within the south of the U.S., which paved the way for the disintegration of family structure splitting thus parents from children, husbands from wives. However, it is argued that there is still hope for change.
