  • Financial inclusion, financial development, and economic diversification
           in Nigeria
    • Abstract: Do financial inclusion and financial development affect economic diversification in Nigeria' If they do, then what are the signs and magnitudes of those effects' Which effects are stronger' This study addresses these questions.In developing countries such as Nigeria, there are "a vast number people, potential entrepreneurs, small enterprises and others, who are excluded from the financial sector, which leads to their marginalisation and denial of opportunity for them to grow and prosper" (Mohan, 2006, p. 1305). Despite the acknowledgement of the importance of financial inclusion for efficiency and equality in any country, many Nigerians are unbanked and still lack access to formal financial services. In 2012 ... Read More

  • Testing monetarist-structuralist controversy in determining inflation in
           Bangladesh
    • Abstract: Bangladesh witnesses 5-7% inflation in recent days. However, its magnitude has wide variation across types and regions with current status as moderate (Figure 1). Even though the magnitude was quite high in late 70s ranging from 8 to 18% the overall long term pattern is wide U-shaped. The inflation figures turn out to be quite low in early 90s and early 2000s followed by a gradual upward pattern over time. It is quite difficult to identify or single out the underlying factors.INFLATION RATE (FISCAL YEAR AVERAGE) OF BANGLADESH FROM 1977:M07 TO 2016:M01Source: Own calculation from CPI data collected from Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS)Monetarists claim that the inflation in an economy is a monetary phenomenon; ...

  • Self-employment in Latin America
    • Abstract: The analysis of self employment has received considerable attention in recent years mainly due to the evidence from developed countries that it exerts an important role in the reduction of unemployment (Thurik, Carrie, van Stel and Audretsch, 2007) and because of its potential in technological development and innovation (Acs et al 2008). This is a field of special importance to developing countries in view of its positive role on socioeconomic development, a premise that dates from the work of Schumpeter (1934). In fact, several authors have argued that entrepreneurship has a positive association with economic growth in developing countries (Bianchi, 2010; Wong et al, 2005; van Stel, Carree and Thurik, 2005). Other ... Read More

  • Risk tolerance, personal financial knowledge and demographic
           characteristicsevidence from India
    • Abstract: Fear of risk is the most important constraint in any financial decision and which is also a most important reason which makes every individual to think before any financial decision. Therefore personal financial planning is important to avoid that frightening anticipation of risk. For modern financial planning the ground breaking event was the Harry Markowitz discloser in 1952, "I was stuck with the notion that you should be interested in risk as well as return" and for evaluation of this simple notion Markowitz was awarded with Nobel prize in 1990. Even before Markowitz, Benjamin graham, the father of fundamental investment theory suggested in support of importance of risk that "basis for investment decisions is ... Read More

  • The impact of social grant-dependency on agricultural entrepreneurship
           among rural households in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa
    • Abstract: South Africa is characterized by high unemployment and poverty levels, especially in the rural areas (Herrington, Kew & Kew 2015). Job creation and rural poverty reduction are thus top of the country's national agenda (NPC 2012). The country's capacity to address these challenges problems has been partly hamstrung by relatively low levels of entrepreneurship (van der Merwe & de Swardt 2008). Even though South Africa's entrepreneurship performance has increased in the past several years, it is still very low when compared to other developing countries (Fal et al. 2011, Herrington, Kew & Kew 2015). In the rural areas, the importance of smallholder farming is such that entrepreneurship in farming should be ... Read More

  • Improving service quality to local communities via a citizen satisfaction
           measurement in Greece: The 'MUSA' approach
    • Abstract: Focusing on the role of local authorities, several approaches stand that their importance on territories development is crucial. The existence of local authorities with 'entrepreneurial capacity' or 'organising capacity' emerges as a basic need, especially in the '90s (i.e. Kresl and Singh, 1999; Van den Berg et al., 1997). Hagedoorn et al. (2000), awarded the establishment of partnerships between local authorities and research institutions, while Williams (2002) and Hutchcroft (1996), referring to the role of community strategies in the promotion of economic and social development and their contribution to the attainment of sustainable development in Great Britain, supported that the new model of local authorities ...

  • The effect of using fair value accounting on fundamental analysis: Some
           evidence from the emerging economies
    • Abstract: The movement towards fair value accounting has become today more actively debated all around the world than ever before. Though fair value accounting has been around for decades, primarily for financial assets, the discussions today are about whether other assets and liabilities on balance sheets should be reported at fair value as opposed to historical cost.

  • Political Freedom and Growth
    • Abstract: The relationship between political freedom and economic growth is considered very critical in political economics. Theoretically, political freedom is found to be positively correlated with economic growth; thus, nations with high political freedom have higher growth rates, while those with low political freedom have low growth (Lipset 1993; Przeworski and Limongi 1993; Barro 1997; Minier 1998; and Przeworski 2004). Alternatively, according to the World Bank, a number of high growth countries have low political rights such as: China, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (Fosu 1992; and Feng 1997). In addition, several democratic countries (high political rights) are experiencing low economic growth especially ... Read More

  • The effects of foreign aid on economic growth in developing countries
    • Abstract: Can foreign aid contribute to economic growth in less developed countries' Understanding the relationship between foreign aid and economic growth in less developed countries is a challenging research topic and has also been a controversial issue. While this topic has been studied extensively in the development economics literature, there has been neither a theoretical consensus nor consistent empirical evidence that concludes whether the relationship between foreign aid and economic growth in less developed countries is positive, negative or non-existent. Early research on foreign aid, dating back to the 1940s and 1950s, was consistent with the optimism of foreign aid effectiveness after the war. It also provided a ... Read More

  • Impacts of exposure and access to seed on the adoption of dual-purpose
           Cowpea and Groundnut varieties in Ghana
    • Abstract: Integrated crop-livestock farming has been identified as one of the key mechanisms for enhancing sustainable crop and livestock productivity (Singh et al. 2003). However, the viability of this farming system in Ghana is under increasing pressure from land degradation, drought, increasing population, inadequate production inputs and declining soil fertility (Kristjanson et al. 2005). Aside from disease, one major factor influencing the sustainability of the livestock industry is the lack of native pasture during the dry season (Agyare et al. 2002). Furthermore, efforts at promoting the adoption of cereal-legume crop rotations have been unsuccessful mainly due to the reluctance of farmers to allocate their land and ... Read More

  • Rice Ecosystems and Adoption of Modern Rice Varieties in Odisha, East
           India: Intensity, Determinants and Policy Implications
    • Abstract: Adoption of modern technology in backward agriculture has been drawing the attention of development economists and planners since long, as adoption offers an opportunity to increase output and income substantially (Sarap and Vashist 1994). Moreover, technology driven farm production has a direct impact on poverty and employment in backward economy through augmentation in productivity, profitability and sustainability of farming of smallholders (WDR 2008; Asfaw et al. 2012). Of course, the green revolution technologies introduced in the form of a package of high yielding varieties (HYVs) of seeds, fertilizers and pesticides during the 1960s in Indian agriculture increased the production substantially (FAO 2004; ...

  • Does Financial Inclusion Spur Economic Growth in India'
    • Abstract: Financial inclusion has become a priority for policymakers and banking personnel for promoting financial sector development and ensuring sustainable long-run economic growth. It refers to a process which helps to bring unbanked people into the banking fold by the mainstream of institutional players and plays an important role in financial development and economic growth (Sharma, 2016). A financial intermediary helps for the smooth functioning of a sound financial system, which serves to channelize funds from savers to borrowers and lubricate the wheels of the economy in a transparent manner. According to Reserve bank of India (RBI), "Financial inclusion is the process of ensuring access to appropriate financial ... Read More

  • Msmes and Employment Generation in Nigeria
    • Abstract: The world has come to recognize the significant role MSMEsi (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) play in any economy's development to include employment generation, increase in output and source of export (IFC, 2013). At the same time, the literature explains that 50% or more of these MSMEs do not survive beyond five years of establishment (Smallbone, 1998). Haltiwanger et al. (2013) posited that the prowess of small firms' job creation lies in the start-up and young businesses. Juxtaposing these last two statements implies that some of the employment generated and output and export created by these MSMEs are rather unsustainable because of the higher failure rates associated with the young small enterprises. If ... Read More

  • Corporate Disclosure and Cultural Values: A Test for Multinational
           Corporations
    • Abstract: In 2015, the market value for the world 100 largest multinational corporations (MNCs) around the world exceeded US$16 trillion (PwC, 2015). This amount exceeds the GDP of many countries. With such an increased power and spread for MNCs around the globe, there has been an increased call for enhancing transparency and disclosure for this very important sector in the world economy (Devereux, 2011; Murphy, 2009; Dyreng et al., 2014). The benefits of enhanced disclosure by MNCs are enormous. In 2003, Richard Murphy, a Charted Accountant presented to the International Accounting Standards Board a paper calling for new accounting and reporting standards to enhance the disclosure of MNCs; such disclosure "provide ...

  • Dynamic interaction between savings, investment and economic growth in
           Nigeria: A Vector autoregressive (VAR) approach
    • Abstract: Several empirical studies abound in the literature that examines the causal link between savings, investment, and growth, but there seems to be no harmony as regards the existence and direction of the relationship between these variables. While some scholars supported the classical growth theory that is of the view that savings stimulates growth (Tang & Chua, 2009; Olajide, 2009; Abiodun, 2010; Tang, 2010; Hafizah et al. 2011) others lend credence to the Keynesian hypothesis, which posit that growth causes and drives savings(Carroll& Weil, 1994; Romm, 2005; Rasmidatta, 2011; Sekantsi, & Kalebe, 2015). From the time of the empirical work of Harrod (1939) and Domar (1946), the significance of savings and investment ... Read More

  • School Absenteeism and Child Labor in Rural Bangladesh
    • Abstract: Evidence from many countries suggests a close association between school absenteeism and high rates of school drop-out (Epstein and Sheldon, 2002; Lewin 2007), grade repetition and low academic achievement (Fuller et. al. 1999; Bedi and Marshall, 2002; Lewin, 2007), and health and psychological disorders (Kearny, 2008). It has been argued that school absenteeism/attendance is a better indicator of exposure of children to schooling than school enrollment, particularly in developing countries with high incidence of child labor (Orazem and King, 2007).In rural Bangladesh, school absenteeism is a major issue. Many children who are enrolled do not attend school regularly. Our own calculation using the Multiple Indicator ... Read More

  • Linkage Between Rural Non-Farm Income and Agricultural Productivity in
           Nigeria: A Tobit-Two-Stage Least Square Regression Approach
    • Abstract: Farming as a primary source of income has failed to guarantee sufficient income for livelihood of most farming households in Sub-Saharan Africa. To overcome their credit constraints, farming households are increasingly seeking alternative sources of income by participating in off-farm activities (Babatunde, 2015). Since the livelihoods of rural farming households are more often characterized by complex strategies that involve multiple income-generating activities by one or more household members, as non-farm income sources assume an increasingly important role over time. Haggblade et al. (2010) indicates that non-farm income accounts for between 35% and 50% of total revenue of rural households in developing ... Read More

  • Responsibility for Poverty: Sustainable Management by Mining Multinational

    • Abstract: The dialogue on the relationship between social and economic development and international business activities is ongoing and robust. Multinational corporations (MNCs) worldwide play diverse roles in global social and economic development (Agosin and Machado, 2005) This is highlighted by the depth of contemporary debate regarding the true societal contributions made through the corporate social responsibility (CSR) expressions of MNCs. Described as an 'almost truism' (Norman and Macdonald, 2004), CSR is perceived as a set of taken-for-granted ideas within society or institution (Porter and Kramer, 2006; Pimpa, 2013; Bondy et al, 2012) but, to be meaningful to all stakeholders, requires further attention among ...

    • Abstract: Starting Over the entire history of stock markets, predictability of the stock prices, and returns, has been a primary concern for investors. This is the very reason that the topic has long been studied in the academic world. There are broadly two categories of analyses, namely technical and fundamental, used to forecast future prices. In technical analysis, historical data of prices or other information is used to drive signals about future prices. In contrast, fundamental analysis uses variables related to intrinsic properties of the stock to get an estimate about future price, or value.Over the recent years, however, technical analysis has been famously used by the financial analysts and investors for decision ...

    • Abstract: Robust economic growth among the ASEAN economies has lifted millions out of poverty and created a growing middle class. Over the period 2000-2014, the average compound annual real GDP growth rate of the 10 ASEAN economies was 5.7%.1 Viewed as a single entity, ASEAN is the seventh largest economy in the world, with a combined GDP estimated at US$2.46 trillion in 2013 (McKinsey Global Institute 2014).However, further development is not guaranteed. Many pundits have expressed concern about whether growth in ASEAN economies will be derailed in the future. In a recent report, the World Bank suggested that Indonesia, the largest economy in ASEAN, will face very real risk of growth slowdown if structural reforms are not ... Read More

  • Solid Waste Recycling: Sustainability Issues in Dhaka City
    • Abstract: Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, covers an area of 347 sq km and has more than 15 million inhabitants. It is one of the fastest-growing mega cities in the world.In Dhaka, solid waste generation amounts to 4624 ton/day (JICA, 2005), of which 1800 tons are collected and dumped by the Dhaka City Corporation (DCC). Improper solid waste management in major cities such as Dhaka is harming human health and causing economic, environmental, and biological losses (Moghadam et al., 2009) and presents the local authorities with a daunting task (Damghani et al., 2008).Scavengers (garbage collectors, junk chemical agents that neutralize or remove undesired substances, and habitual consumers of refuse) have different ...

  • Determinants of house prices and new construction activity: An empirical

    • Abstract: The housing market attracts a large volume of investment because houses are among the key assets treasured by households and firms. The real estate market provides positive externalities in terms of protection, public health and economic development (Panagiotidis and Printzis, 2015). Thus, houses are often regarded as a good investment, considering that a property does not depreciate. However, this changed during the 2007 global financial crisis, which had a tremendous impact on the housing market in countries all over the world. Since then the housing sector has been kept under continuous observation for its potentially disruptive influence on financial stability and economic growth (Renigier-Biłozor and ... Read More

  • CSR, organizational identification, normative commitment, and the
           moderating effect of the importance of CSR
    • Abstract: Employee commitment has been the subject of interest for organizational practitioners. To ensure commitment, companies ought to make sure that their employees are satisfied or feel some sort of attachment to the organization. Turban and Greening (1997) claimed that maintaining a favorable corporate social responsibility (CSR) reputation can help foster a bond between a company and its employees. CSR has been described as a company's outward display of social and environmental awareness in its day-to-day operations (European Commission, 2002). Some scholars believe that adopting CSR may be related to the creation of employee commitment (Mueller et al., 2012).Stakeholder theory argues that the long-term value of a ... Read More

  • The labyrinth of international governance codes: The quest for

Likewise, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) defines corporate governance as 'a set of relationships among management, company board, its shareholders and other stakeholders'. Both definitions imply the principal-agent model of the corporation, and emphasise the importance of shareholder interest and company value. Shleifer, and Vishny (1997) define corporate governance as 'a set of mechanisms to assure financiers that they will get a return on their ... Read More
