  • Participation and Spending Attitudes in the Mauritian Lotto Market
    • Abstract: Mauritius is an archipelago tucked in the turquoise South West Indian Ocean with a total land area of 2,040 square kilometres. The island is renowned for its long white sandy beaches and lagoons, haute-chic elegance hotels, challenging golf courses, impressive array of tourist attractions and multi-ethnic communities which makes it a unique population. Under rigid rules and regulations, gambling got legislated in the early 18th century through horse racing which draws the mass at the racetrack on a weekly basis. Over time, new products were introduced in the forms of casinos, scratch cards, instant games and football betting to vary the level of stakes. Under the aegis of the Lottotech Ltd., the present generation ... Read More

  • Development, Poverty and Inequality: A Spatial Analysis of South African
           Provinces
    • Abstract: The transition from Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has substantially shifted the policy debate from just growth, to quality of growth. The April 15th publication by the World Bank on attainment of the MDGs extreme poverty target has revealed that poverty has been decreasing in all regions of the world with the exception of sub-Saharan Africa. According to the account, about half the countries in the sub-saharan region are going to miss reaching the underlying goal of reducing poverty by half between 1990 and 2015 (Asongu & Kodila-Tedika 2015; Caulderwood 2015; World Bank 2015). Figures from the World Bank report are quite puzzling because they substantially contrast with ... Read More

  • Capital Structure and Corporate Governance
    • Abstract: Financing decisions of a firm are of critical importance to the management of a firm. These decisions include the determination of an optimal capital structure of a firm. Theoretically, there are a number of capital structure theories available in this regard. Since Modigliani and Miller (1958) presented the irrelevance theory, there have been an ongoing discussion about the relevance of capital structure, but theoretically, there is rather conflicting evidence regarding this phenomenon. Debt to Equity ratio (D/E ratio) is commonly used as a measure of capital structure. Investors and lenders are particularly interested in the D/E ratio so as to analyze the firm's excessive use of debt and chances of ... Read More

  • The Determinants of Investment Efficiency in West African Economic and
           Monetary Union (Waemu)
    • Abstract: It has been documented in the literature that investment, whether public or private constitutes the foundation of any dynamic economy. Indeed, theoretical and empirical studies have shown that the stock of private and public capital has a positive and significant impact on economic growth (Ghazanchyan & Stotsky 2013; Nourzad 2003; Abou 2007). These results implied that countries should increase their investment rate to achieve higher economic growth. In that regard, many initiatives to increase investment have been undertaken by both the developed and the developing countries.Historically, WAEMU countries1 have faced many economic challenges due to the low rate of investment (Vamvakidis 1998). To successfully ... Read More

  • Is There an Investment Motive Behind Remittances?: Evidence From Panel
           Cointegration
    • Abstract: Over the last few decades, migrant remittances have taken a more prominent role in developing countries. As a result, the question of whether they crowd-in or crowd-out domestic investment has become an important policy issue. In general terms, the macroeconomic effects of remittances largely depend on whether they act as pure compensatory transfers or capital flows (Chami, Fullenkamp and Jahjah, 2005). In the first case, altruistic motives dominate in the sense that the migrant is concerned with the well-being of his/her relatives. In the latter case, though, self-interest dominates, such that the migrant retains some sort of ownership over the assets and thus uses remittances to finance investment projects. From ... Read More

  • iSkills and Competencies for The Contemporary Human Resource Practitioner:
           A Synthesis Of The Academic, Industry and Employers' Perspectives
    • Abstract: Technological advancements and changes in business trends (in the 21st century) have transformed how HR practitioners operate and the competencies they require to support this evolution (Uti & Choi, 2015; Ulrich, Younger, Brockbank, & Ulrich D 2013). In this competitive market, graduate human resource student's need to ensure that they acquire the generic and technical skills and competencies to remain competitive and employable. Academics, professional practitioners and employers provide a variety of information on what is viewed as important competencies that are desired so that they are able to ensure they can accomplish those competencies. This paper attempts to present the results of a comprehensive literature ... Read More

  • Explaining the Growth of Government Spending in Ghana
    • Abstract: Governments, like individuals, make choices since choice making is a characteristic of economic management. The choice of policy by a government is reflected in its spending on the provision of goods and services. What is worrying for many developing countries is that government spending often tends to exceed its revenue levels.In Ghana, for example, government revenue as a percentage of GDP increased from 4.14 per cent in 1980 to 19.06 per cent in 2012. On the other hand, government spending as a percentage of GDP increased from 11.19 per cent in 1980 to 31.19 per cent in 2012. The result is not different when we consider 5-year averages for the period 1980-2009 and 3-year average for the period 2010-2012 (see ... Read More

  • Does Access to Credit Improve Household Welfare in The Long-Run?
    • Abstract: The relationship between access to finance and household poverty reduction has been well explored in the literature. Evidence on the positive impact could be seen from pioneer research studies such as Khandker (1998, 2001, 2003), Pitt and Khandker (1998), Coleman (2002) etc or from more recent studies such as Karlan and Zinman (2010), Augsburg et al (2014), Angelucci et al (2015), Banerjee et al (2015) .etc.The literature sees just few research papers about Vietnam. Among the few, Lensink and Pham (2012) find positive impact of access to credit and of the accumulated amount of credit on self-employment profits in Vietnam. Doan et al (2014) suggest that access to formal credit leads to positive impact on household's ... Read More

  • Climate Change and The Dwindling Commodity Prices in Africa: Are There New
           Options For Economic Re-Engineering
    • Abstract: Africa is a land of many "highest" and contrasts. Sub-Saharan Africa has a surface area of 24 million square kilometer making her the largest of all developing regions. Africa is endowed with human and natural resources. The continent accounts for 55 percent of global supply of diamond, 52 percent for Cobalt, 37 percent of Chromite and 22 percent of Gold (Livingstone et al., 2011). According to IMF forecast, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Congo, Ghana, Zambia and Nigeria constituted world's fastest growing economy between 2011 and 2015 (Livingston et al., 2011). Most African countries rely on fuel, minerals or agriculture to generate revenue. Despite the huge resource endowments, Africa accounts for a meager ... Read More

  • The Determinants of Price Inflation in the United States: A Multivariate
           Dynamic Cointegration and Causal Analysis
    • Abstract: In recent times there have been suggestions to introduce a monetary stimulus package to expedite economic recovery in the United States. Although Phillips (1958), Samuelson and Solow (1960) and others have argued that a rise in inflation due to a monetary expansion will lower unemployment at least in the short-run, the empirical estimates of the inflation-unemployment relation have varied across studies. For instance, Samuelson and Solow (1960), using U.S. data for the period 1934-1958, hand-drew a downward-sloping curve as a graphical illustration of the inflation-unemployment relation for the U.S. economy. According to their hand-drawn Phillips curve, a fall in unemployment rate from 5.5% to 4% will expectedly ... Read More

  • Remittances, Human Capital and Poverty: A System Approach
    • Abstract: Remittances by immigrant workers are now an important source of funds for many developing countries and their inflows have been rapidly growing. During 2007 and 2008 their growth rate was 15 percent; Ratha, Mohapatra & Silwal (2009).1 Barajas et. al. (2009) and Chami et. al. (2008) reported that during 2007 remittances through official channels were $300 billion in addition to unknown transfers through unofficial channels, which are estimated to be about 40 percent of flows through the official channels.There are three major macroeconomic consequences of remittances. Firstly, a steady flow of remittances reduce volatility in output; see Kroft and Lloyd-Ellis (2002), Hnatkovska and Loayza (2003), IMF (2005), World ... Read More

  • Dynamic Linkages Between Macroeconomic Factors and Islamic Stock Indices
           in a Non-Islamic Country India
    • Abstract: Over the past few decades the interaction between stock returns and macroeconomic variables has been a subject of interest among academicians and practitioners. Previous studies, Mookerjee et.al. (1997), Kwon and Shin (1999), Pierdzioch et.al. (2008) among others, have documented the existence of significant relationships between the stock market and select macroeconomic variables for both developed and developing nations. In recent years financial activities conducted under the banner of "Islamic finance" have grown significantly in volume and scope, attracting attention worldwide. This new and innovative financial industry is viewed as an alternative way of financial intermediation in the world. Islamic investing ... Read More

  • The Impact of Information Technology Advancement on Intuition in
           Organisations: A Phenomenological Approach
    • Abstract: While technology and information technology specifically, have progressed at a rapid rate, assessing their impact on how intuition is used within an organisation has no solid empirical foundation. Information technology has seen increased investment over the years, with organisations relying on it to provide the competitive edge in an uncertain market place. The key premise behind information technology is its ability to improve decision making by providing access to more information. However, exploring how this increase in available information has influenced the use of intuition within an organisation reveals a gap in the literature for this study to address. In the infant stages of technology adoption, intuition ... Read More

  • Factors Influencing Adoption, Productivity and Efficiency of Hybrid Rice
           in Bangladesh
    • Abstract: Agriculture has been the mainstay of Bangladesh economy that contributes nearly 17% to the country's gross domestic product and employs more than 47% of the total labour force (Bangladesh Economic Review 2015). Rice, the principal crop of Bangladesh agriculture, occupies almost 76% of the total cropped area and its share to total food grain production is over 92% (BBS 2015). As a staple food, rice provides 76% of total calorie and 66% of total protein requirements of the daily food intake (Bhuiyan et al. 2002). It is, by far, the largest sectoral source of income and employment in the economy. The crop sub-sector dominates with 14.3% contribution to total GDP of which rice itself contributes about 53% (Khan et al. ... Read More

  • Development of the Capital Service Market in Agriculture: The Emergence of
           Tractor-Hire Services in Ghana
    • Abstract: Agricultural mechanization has been a hotly debated issue in recent decades. Many scholars have acknowledged the critical role that farm power—whether human, draft, or engine power—plays in agricultural development and growth (Boserup 1965; Pingali, Bigot, and Binswanger 1987). Changes in the composition of farm power have made it possible to maintain or increase agricultural productivity in response to changes in the availability of land and labor (Binswanger and Ruttan 1978). However, the debate on agricultural mechanization in developing countries has largely neglected the role of the capital-service market. Small farm size and the seasonality of agriculture have often been seen as major limitations to ownership ... Read More

  • Does U.S. Sub-Prime Crisis Impede Asian Equity Indices Integration
           Strengthens?: An Ardl-Bounds Testing Approach
    • Abstract: Markets around the globe have become continuously integrated and globalized due to the change in economic regulations along with technological expansions. Integration among the stock markets is a dynamic process, in which the stock markets of different countries coordinate and cooperate to each other, and realize a big integrated market eventually (Bae and Zhang, 2015). International trade in commodities, services and financial assets are foremost part of integration among Economic and financial systems of Asian markets (Kearney and Lucey, 2004). Past studies described the benefits of market integration include the decrease of capital cost (Henry, 2004) and growth in real investment (Chari and Henry, 2008; Bekaert ... Read More

  • The Effect of Crime on Foreign Direct Investment: A Multi-Country Panel
           Data Analysis
    • Abstract: Some countries find attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) challenging because of problems associated with criminal activity. Criminal activities tend to introduce risk and uncertainty, which can increase the expected cost to foreign investors. However, many potential benefits accompany FDI inflows, and as such, economies that are largely dependent on this flow should attempt to address any issues that relate to crime. Two of the many benefits highlighted in the literature include creating employment opportunities and helping host countries achieve sustainable development (Cassidy & O'Callaghan, 2006; Erdal & Tatoglu, 2002). These likely benefits can be very appealing, especially to economies in transition and ... Read More

  • Board Independance and The Efficiency of Internal Capital Markets
    • Abstract: Ever since the corporate scandals of the early 2000s and the consequent imposition of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and NYSE/NASDAQ listing rules, firms were obliged to have a majority of independent directors serving on their boards. Guo and Masulis (2013) find that boards have become larger and more independent post-SOX. The question of whether increased board independence is beneficial for the firm has been widely discussed in the literature. While inside directors are thought to be better advisors because they have more firm-specific information, independent directors are thought to be better monitors because of their independence from CEOs. That is, outsiders are more capable of disciplining managers if ... Read More

  • Oil Price Volatility And Sectoral Returns Uncertainties: Evidence From A
           Threshold Based Approach For The Australian Equity Market
    • Abstract: Sources of stock market volatility has long been a topic of significant interest to both policy makers and market practitioners (Taylor et al., 2010; Adrian and Rosenberg, 2008; Skinner, 1989; Altman and Schwartz, 1970). With the growth of global economic activities and the resultant surge in energy dependence of various economies over the last several decades, changes in the price of crude oil are often regarded an important factor affecting a range of economic and financial variables. In particular, oil price changes could help understand fluctuations in stock prices, with significant implication for policy and practice. From a theoretical perspective, oil price volatility dynamics have significant economic ... Read More

  • Poverty and Economic Growth in Ethiopia: A Multivariate Causal Linkage
    • Abstract: The eradication of extreme poverty and hunger is the first, and probably the most important of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Although the target of halving the global extreme poverty rate by year 2015 has been met; globally, 836 million people are still living in extreme poverty (United Nations 2015:4). The reality of poverty among the different societies has caused development economists to keep digging on what could alleviate poverty, leading to todays' vast growth-poverty nexus research.The relationship between economic growth and poverty reduction has long been researched in numerous studies around the world; yet, the results are far from being conclusive. Although it is now widely ... Read More

  • Has Fed's Policy Hurt the World Economy?
    • Abstract: In order to rescue the U.S. financial market and to stimulate the economy in the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008, the Federal Reserve introduced a number of new (nonconventional) monetary policy tools. Termed as "credit easing" by then Fed's chairman, Ben Bernanke, and aimed at lowering both the short-term and the long-term interest rates and thereby boosting the consumption and investment demand and, in turn, stimulating the economy, this policy had the effect of altering both the size and composition of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet (see Clevelandfed.org). These non-conventional policy tools were thought to be necessary when conventional policy tool, such as, the federal funds rate target had ... Read More

  • Economic Openness and Stagnation In Central America
    • Abstract: Since the mid-eighties the Central American countries undertook economic reforms with the objective of modernizing their economies, obtaining a better allocation of resources and more dynamic rates of economic growth. Among these measures, emphasis was placed on the liberalization of external trade, which involved the streamlining and elimination of permits to import, the elimination of quotas, and the reduction of external tariffs. The speed of the reforms was impressive, which gained the Central American countries the distinction of occupying high positions in the "hit parade" of countries that were committed to economic modernization, especially El Salvador1. It should be indicated that until the mid-eighties ... Read More

    • Abstract: Family-controlled firms play a particularly important role in Asian countries (Chang, 2003; Joh, 2003; Filatotchev, Lien, & Piesse, 2005). but, most studies of corporate ownership rely on Chinese firms such as Mainland China, Taiwan, not specially in Hong Kong firms (for example, Filatotchev et al. 2005, Xia 2008, Wu 2009, Chu 2009, Fan 2013). Many studies have produced interesting results about Chinese family businesses. This research is aimed at finding the ownership-performance relationship inside Hong Kong founding family business under the Hang Seng Composite Industry Index.In East Asian markets, more than 65% of listed firms are controlled by major shareholders and of those firms, 60% of the managers are ...

    • Abstract: Saudization, the replacement of foreign labor with Saudi nationals, has evolved through the years to include policies aimed at fostering Saudi women's employment and the growth in their economic participation. Labor policies such as the Nitaqat program and the Council of Ministers Resolution No 120 intend to promote the employment of Saudi women, especially in the private sector. The Saudi females' labor force participation rate was about 17.3 percent in 2015 and has been increasing at a slower pace than expected while being accompanied by a rise in females' unemployment rate (CDSI, 2015). This signifies that Saudi females' graduation rate and the amount of females searching for work continue to growth faster than ... Read More
