  • Co-Movements Between Key Components Of Aggregate Productivity And Real
           Exchange Dynamics In Developing Countries
    • Abstract: There is an extensive literature that investigates causes of macroeconomic fluctuations in developing countries. Variability in the real exchange rate is identified as one of the key determinants of international business cycles. For instance, Mendoza (1995) finds that real exchange rate fluctuations are large and procyclical to GDP growth. A lower real exchange rate implies that similar baskets of goods are cheaper in domestic relative to foreign economies. A decrease in the real exchange rate boosts net exports and aggregate demand leading to GDP growth. Since the cost of domestic relative to foreign goods must change with variability in the real exchange rate, international trade can significantly be impacted in ... Read More

  • The Effects Of Remittances On Economic Growth: Reexamining The Role Of
           Institutions
    • Abstract: Notwithstanding the large and increasing volume of research on the remittance-growth linkage, we have yet to resolve the nature of causality (bidirectional or unidirectional) and the direction (negative or positive) of the link, if any (Bettin and Zazzaro, 2011; Catrinescu, Leon-Ledesma, Piracha, and Quillin, 2009; Ramirez, 2013). It has been argued that a priori, the impact of remittances on economic growth is unclear. According to Bettin and Zazzaro (2011), whether remittances promote or thwart growth will depend "on the expenditures they fund (investment versus consumption; traded versus non-traded goods) and the activity they stimulate (work versus leisure)" (p. 109). If remittances fund consumption ... Read More

  • Financial Development And Economic Growth Dynamics In South Asian Region
    • Abstract: The financial development and economic growth relationship have drawn significant interest of researchers over the last couple of decades. How financial markets, instruments and institutions that directly contribute to the growth process through enterprises and households has been the core focus of this group of research work. When, an economy has well-functioning financial systems, it will respond positively to the enterprise borrowings as well as create more entrepreneurs. These processes ultimately keep the economic growth positive as more economic activities take place. Therefore, a well-defined financial system has several functions. These functions include embedding restructuring of risks; allocation of ... Read More

  • The Nexus Between Carbon Emission, Energy Consumption, Economic Growth And
           Changing Economic Structure In India: A Multivariate Cointegration
           Approach
    • Abstract: India, one of the most important transitional and growing economies of the world, sustained an impressive GDP growth rate of 5.4 percent per year for last three decades and is forecasted to grow by over 6 percent in the next couple of years (World Bank). India contributes 6.83 percent of world's GDP (PPP) and shares 15.44 percent of Asia's GDP (PPP). Around the same time, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the country increased so rapidly that currently it is one of the largest CO2 emitters in the world. Its CO2 emissions increased from 182.4 million tons in 1971 to 1868. 6 million tons in 2013. There has been a 249 percent increase in emissions since nineties, mainly due to fossil fuel consumption (73.6 percent of ... Read More

  • Determinants Of Capital Flight From Beautiful Places: The Case Of Small
           Open Economy Of Trinidad And Tobago
    • Abstract: Capital flight has been classified as a threat to scarce financial resources, domestic resource allocation, tax revenue, and macroeconomic variables such as debt, exchange rate, income inequality, investment, and growth. Given this context, a post financial liberalization empirical discourse on the determinants of capital flight is considered in the case of Trinidad and Tobago. The literature displays several country or regional distinctions in the drivers of capital flight, (Ndikumana and Boyce 2003; Collier, Hoeffler & Pattilo 2001; Henry 1996; Hermes, Lensink & Murinde 2002; Ndikumana and Boyce 2011; Schneider 2003). For example, the results of Adesoye, Maku & Atanda (2012), Brada, Kutan & Vukšić (2011), Epstein ... Read More

  • Workforce Localization In The UAE: Recruitment And Selection Challenges
           And Practices In Private And Public Organizations
    • Abstract: Workforce localization (WL) is defined as the recruitment and development of citizens to increase their employability, thus reducing a country's dependency on expatriate labor (Cave 2004). Although WL strategies vary from country to country, they all involve key HRM activities, such as recruitment and selection (R&S), training and development, career management, performance and compensation policies for local employees. The WL process provides HR managers an opportunity to design, implement and monitor strategic HRM practices.

  • Public And Private Investment Nexus In Bangladesh: Crowding-In Or Out'
    • Abstract: Bangladesh is one of the fastest growing economies in the world though its growth rate has been stagnant around 6% since the last decade. Recently, the government of Bangladesh has designed its Seventh Five Year Plan for the period 2016-2020 to surpass this 6% growth trap and to accelerate the GDP growth rate progressively to 8% by 2020. To attain this higher growth rate, total investment including both public and private investments will be required to increase gradually from 28.9% to 34.4% of GDP by 2020 (Planning Commission 2015). Since the growth effect of private investment is higher than public investment [see Khan and Kumar (1997) and Khan and Reinhart (1990) among others] and domestic private investment ... Read More

  • Dynamics Of Private Capital Flows To India: A Structural VAR Approach
    • Abstract: Foreign capital plays an important role in the transformation of the developing economies as they become more open and integrated with the world economy. Many studies such as World Bank (1995), Calvo, Leiderman and Reinhart (1996), Ying and Kim (2001), Sahoo (2006), Ralhan (2006) and Obstfeld (2009) have highlighted the importance of foreign capital for the developing countries. First, developing countries need foreign capital to bridge saving-investment gap and finance current account deficits. Second, foreign capital by supplementing necessary technology helps developing countries to increase factor productivity, which is imperative for faster economic growth. Third, foreign capital by increasing the market ... Read More

  • Microinsurance And Consumption Smoothing Among Low-Income Households In
           Ghana
    • Abstract: Low-income households employ a diversity of strategies to smooth consumption because the welfare consequences of consumption shocks are usually very high. Examples of such coping strategies are the disposal of assets, child labour and reduction in meals. However the empirical literature suggests that these strategies disrupt the growth path of low-income households and set them back into chronic poverty. For instance, reducing meals may lead to malnourishment with pernicious health conditions, while withdrawing children from school and child labour may disrupt human capital development (Janzen and Carter, 2013a; Chakrabarty, 2012; Morsink et al., 2011).Microinsurance is a risk management tool that uses the concept ...

  • Audit Firm Tenure And Earnings Management: The Impact Of Changing
           Accounting Standards In UK Firms
    • Abstract: This study investigates the association between audit firm tenure and earnings management (EM) in the UK. Prior research generally provides evidence that longer audit firm tenure is associated with lower levels of EM and, therefore, higher earnings quality (e.g., Gul, Fung & Jaggi, 2009; Johnson, Khurana & Reynolds, 2002; Myers, Myers & Omer, 2003). This study is timely and important given the recent concerns regarding the potential compromise of auditor independence that might be associated with extended audit firm tenure (see for e.g. Moore, Tetlock, Tanlu & Bazerman, 2006; Sinnett, 2004). Many of the scandals occurred in the history of accounting and auditing were related to EM and external audit firms. ... Read More

  • Ownership Structure And Conservatism's Impact On Jordanian Bank's
           Financial Performance
    • Abstract: The series of financial crisis has exposed significant weaknesses in the worlds' financial system. It has put the stability of the global financial system into more questions, arguing that it may damage the main capitalism rule which states that financial markets and private financial institutions could largely be trusted to regulate themselves (Stein 2009); thus, a new regulation is needed to regain the different stakeholders' trust.The corporate governance aims to monitor the manager's activities and protect the different stakeholders' interest, and in order to organize and clarify this relation, Jensen & Meckling (1976) developed the ownership structure theory, which became a main dimension for the corporate ...

  • Bank Specifics, Economics Environment, And Agency Theory: Determinants Of
           Banking Performance In GCC
    • Abstract: The banking failures' waves of the 1980's have generated losses that exceeded the ones of the 1930's great depression. These failures led to questioning the effectiveness of banking practices. Due to the leading role of banks in the economy, their activities must be kept under control and scrutiny to ensure that they operate within the country's policies, rules, and regulations and that the economy is not negatively affected.Therefore, governments should create monetary policies and rules that influence and control banks' activities so that these activities are in line with the development objectives of the economy (Palia and Porter, 2007). In other words, a profitable banking industry minimizes negative economic ... Read More

  • Studying The Relationship Of "Soft" And "Hard" TQM Elements With Service
           Quality In Service Firms
    • Abstract: INTRODUCTIONThe significance of the service sector in recent times is demonstrated in all areas of services of worldwide economies. Regarding this competitive environment, the service firms need to be swifter, leaner, perform more effectively and offer superior service quality in an effort to remain competitive (Shahin & Alipour, 2006). Competitive environment in the present marketplace is evolving frequently because there are a lot of competitors that provide the same products and service for the customers. In an effort to take on other competitors as well as to reign over industry, a firm needs to fine-tune and organize the organizational strategies in a more effective and efficient way. Service quality being a ... Read More

  • Is The Complementarity Between Education And Financial Development A
           Panacea For Poverty Reduction'
    • Abstract: Most of the available literature on education-poverty nexus indirectly linked the two variables through economic growth. They argued that increased education expenditure improves the growth of the economy through boosting the skills levels and workforce's productivity, consistent with Keynes (1936). When economic growth happens, more people gets employment, saves and money, their wealth levels and disposable income goes up. Literature that directly links education and poverty is generally quite scant as majority of the studies argue that economic growth is a channel through which education influences poverty levels. The question on whether education lowers down poverty levels through financial development has not ... Read More

  • Estimating Equilibrium Real Exchange Rate And Misalignment In An Oil
           Exporting Country: Libya's Experience
    • Abstract: One of the significant issues that caught the attention of the authors, economists and policy makers equally is the issue of real exchange rate misalignment and equilibrium. Edwards (1989) claimed that the wrong level of real exchange rate for long time would have an opposite effect on the competitiveness and economic performance. (Hosni and Rofael 2015). The main causes of the real exchange rate misalignment are inappropriate macroeconomic policies, structural factors in the economy, and internal or external trade shocks (Edwards 1988, Nilsson, 1998). It is important to measure the degree of misalignments in the real exchange rate because it helps us to identify the determinants of the real exchange rate (Kalinda ... Read More

  • Indian HR Competency Modelling: Profiling, Mapping And An Investigation Of
           HRM Roles And Competencies
    • Abstract: An increasing number of organizations is becoming more systematic and strategic in their human resource management (HRM) systems in order to better align the interests of employees with those of the organization. The infusion of 'global best' HRM practices in emerging economies has necessitated a dual role on the part of HR practitioners - to act as a business partner, as well as managing and implementing HRM strategies and practices that respond to dynamic economic circumstances (O'Brien and Linehan 2014). There is a plethora of Western HR competency-based models, some of which are discussed later in this paper. All of these models are based on the identification and definition of the specific competencies which ... Read More

  • Entrepreneurship And Accounting Students' Career In The Arab Region:
           Conceptual Perspective
    • Abstract: Decision makers and practitioners have agreed that Entrepreneurship education has an effect on successful entrepreneurial start-ups. It is relatively important to equip students with knowledge and skills necessary for setting up and running their own business (Xie, 2014). According to Drucker (1985) entrepreneurship is a discipline, therefore it can be learned. This confirms what (H.Oosterbeek et al. 2010) have added, that Encouraging entrepreneurial spirit which is represented by the delivery of the required skills may enhance the development of economic growth. Hence, increased levels of entrepreneurship can be reached through education and especially entrepreneurship education.Educational institutions over the ... Read More
