  • Determinants of internet financial reporting in African markets: the case
           of Mauritius
    • Abstract: The massive use of the internet has prompted companies to set up websites to disseminate financial and non-financial information. This initiative is mainly undertaken to meet stakeholders’ demand for timely information, in more effective ways (Willis et al. 2003). Mauritius is among the top five countries in Africa in terms of Internet penetration rate (Internet World Stats 2012). This suggests that there is an increasing demand by Mauritians for information on the internet. Foreign investors account for more than 40 percent of the daily trading activities on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius Access to both financial and non-financial information about Mauritian leading firms and its accessibility at a simple click ...

  • Informal agricultural trade and trans-border farmers between Malaysia and
           Indonesia
    • Abstract: Agricultural products are an important commodity in the informal trade between countries sharing a border region. In 2006, around three quarters of the total agricultural exports—mainly maize, fish, beans, groundnuts and bananas—from Uganda to its neighboring countries were informally exported agricultural products (Lesser and Moisé-Leeman 2009). In terms of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP), informal trade between countries, comprising mostly of agro-industrial products, varies from as low as 20 percent in Nigeria to as high as 75 percent in Benin (Afrika and Ajumbo 2012). Of the total agricultural exports and imports in Laos, 80 percent and 20 percent, respectively, are informal exports and imports through ... Read More

  • Continuous quality improvement programs—part i: survey, critical
           analysis and future research directions
    • Abstract: Concerns about quality could eventually be traced back to the early days of mankind. Over time, quality went through several stages ranging from being the business of the craftsman, to a department, to an organization, to become the concern of industry. In sum, based on who is in charge of quality, quality eras could be divided into five periods (Feigenbaum 1983). The first period, often referred to as the “Operator Quality Control Period”, goes up to 1900 and is characterized by quality being the business of the craftsman in that he or she makes the product and controls its quality according to his or her standards. The second period, often referred to as the “Foreman Quality Control Period”, spans from early ... Read More

  • Listening to aid recipients in ‘aid-development’ debate: Findings from
           ‘the listening project’ and jerge-tal village in Kyrgyzstan
    • Abstract: Does foreign aid really work? To date there has been little scholarly agreement on this important question. Foreign aid is often criticized for not leading to the intended development goals (see, for instance, Easterly and Pfutze 2008; Hattori 2003; Therien 2002; Whitfield 2009; Gulrajani 2011; Buch-Hansen and Lauridsen 2012). International assistance has been brought into question for not working as projected, mainly because ambitious objectives and financial outlays have failed to produce explicit long-term sustainable results (Whitfield 2009; Gulrajani 2011; Collier 2007). It is blamed for perpetuating bad governance and enriching the elite, and is regularly criticized for being “stiflingly bureaucratic ... Read More

  • Financial development and economic growth: evidence from southern African
           development community countries
    • Abstract: A well-functioning financial system is the lifeblood for any economy in the world. Efficient financial institutions are associated with higher economic growth while inefficient financial institutions are usually associated with economic crises (Ang, 2008). Hicks (1969) flatly stated that the Industrial Revolution would not have been a possibility without an efficient financial sector. It is therefore not surprising that Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries have prioritized pro-economic development financial liberalization initiatives in order to raise the standards of living in each and every country in the region. In fact, many developing countries have since implemented financial reforms ... Read More

  • What drives corporate governance quality in emerging African
           economies? Evidence from Ghana
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the determinants of good corporate governance in the Ghanaian listed firms for the study period 2000 to 2009. Even though corporate governance has become increasingly important in realigning the shareholder and manager interest resulting from the separation of ownership and control (Berle and Means, 1932), relatively little is known about how corporate governance has evolved and the determinants of firm-level governance quality in emerging African economy like Ghana. As in Adda and Hinson (2006), there have been some inconsistencies and weaknesses in the regulation of firms in Ghana, suggesting that the level of legal protection offered to shareholders to prevent managers from expropriation ...

  • Investment and growth in a developing economy with vast informal sector
    • Abstract: Developing economies, like India, are often characterized by dualism in terms of ‘informal’ sector occupying a significant portion of overall GDP and employment (Marjit and Kar, 2011). Since investment is believed to be a driver of growth, should such an economy allocate more investment to the formal sector or to the informal sector? What are the effects of such investments on sectoral wage rates and on the composition of sectoral outputs and employment in the formal vis-à-vis informal sector? These questions may be of contemporary interest in a developing economy like India where the widely held view attributes the slowdown in investments as one of the primary reasons behind the recent sluggish growth. This paper ... Read More

  • Terms-of-trade shock duration and national saving in the developing
           countries
    • Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to re-examine the impact of terms-of-trade (TOT) on national saving rates with more robust measures that better treat the effects of TOT movements using data from a large sample of emerging and developing economies.1 Several factors motivate this line of our investigation. First, previous studies, for example, Athukorala (2004); Masson et al. (1998); Ogaki et al. (1995); and Schmidt-Hebbel et al. (1992) find insignificant effects of the TOT on national saving rates. Second, we elevate our analysis by using more robust measures of the TOT behavior that focus on trend growth and shock persistence. Third, we concentrate on the developing countries as problems stemming from fluctuations in ... Read More

  • Assessing the detreminants of economic growth in Ghana
    • Abstract: African economies count among the fastest-growing economies in the world. In particular, West African economies have grown by an average of 5.7% in 2013 and 6% in 2014, despite the battle with the Ebola virus. Ghana has been at the forefront of this growth with an average economic growth of 8% in the period 2001–2014 (AfDB 2015). The challenge faced by African countries, such as Ghana, is to maintain this high economic growth rate in order to finance a number of developmental projects and curb the rampant poverty prevalent in a number of African countries. The sustainability of Ghana’s growth path and the economic policy that ensued necessitates a sound knowledge of the drivers and determinants of its economic ... Read More

  • Do microloans induce performance of traditional-loans? Evidence from
           borrowers of Grameen and similar banks
    • Abstract: Bank loans, also known as conventional or traditional loans, have been the main source of financing economic activities in most developing countries, where the stock and bond markets are relatively weak and immature. The timely recovery of loans (performance of loans) is essential for issuing new loans and expanding the productive capacity of an economy. The non-performed loans (NPLs), on the other hand, not only dampen credit flows but also create negative spill-over effects on the economy—by increasing corruption, conspicuous consumption, interest rates, and moral hazards that discourage other borrowers from repaying their loans. In fact, high conventional NPLs in Bangladesh was one of the major sources for its ... Read More

  • An application of a new seasonal unit root test for trending and breaking
           series to industrial production of the brics
    • Abstract: Seasonality is a quite dominant source of variation in many economic time series. In general, there are three models of seasonality. The first approach, which is adopted by macroeconomists, is to consider the seasonal variable as deterministic. The second approach consists in modeling the deterministic seasonality with its stationary stochastic patterns as was done by Canova (1992). The third approach assumes that seasonality is stochastic and focuses on the development of seasonal unit root tests. These three approaches do not address the seasonality as a disturbing component in time series as was believed when applying seasonal adjustment which may deprive researchers of important information attached to the ...

  • ‘Despotic democrats’ versus good governance: challenges of
           administration of Nigeria’s fourth republic
    • Abstract: Post-colonial Nigeria in its five and a half decades of existence has been under different leaders, many of whom could be referred to as despots. Most of these leaders came to power via military coup de tat; while the remaining few were through elections with only one through selection. It is a known fact of history that most military rulers, probably because of the manner by which they came to power through the barrel of the gun, rule autocratically. Militarisation of governance could also be explained by the command and hierarchical structure of the military which encourages ‘order’ that must be obeyed without questioning. Thus, most military administrations are despotic and autocratic. However, recent ... Read More

  • A sectoral analysis of fiscal and monetary actions in Nigeria
    • Abstract: Worldwide, fiscal and monetary policy are the main instruments of achieving macroeconomic objectives such as full employment, price stability, high growth and external balance (Adefeso & Mobolaji, 2011; Sanni, Amusa & Agbeyangi, 2012). While the monetary instruments are discount rates, reserve requirements and open market policy, the instruments of fiscal policy are public expenditure and tax. Moreover, there is a unanimity among economists (see Rahman 2005; Adefeso & Mobolaji, 2011; Senbet, 2011; Jawaid, et al. 2011; Sanni, et al, 2012; Hussain, 2014; Darrat, et al. 2014) that fiscal and monetary policies are either individually or jointly affecting economic activities. However, the impact of fiscal and monetary ... Read More

  • ‘Small and medium sized firms’ competitiveness and territorial
           characteristics/assets: An MLR approach
    • Abstract: Two basic theories of strategic management, the Resource-Based View and the Industrial Organization Theory, focus on the investigation of firms’ competitiveness. The first refers to the internal environment of firms and their abilities and resources to be competitive (Barney, 2001). The second focuses on the external dynamics of firms’ environment that affect their competitiveness (Porter, 2000) and their ability to design strategically and to be effective (Mukherji and Hurtado, 2001). Among the forces of the external environment, (the combination of) territorial characteristics is of extreme importance (Deas and Giordano, 2001). Several studies, manly by using statistical, econometric and correlation analysis ... Read More

  • How do firms survive crime and corruption, on and off the record? An
           empirical and cross-regional examination among global developing economies
           
    • Abstract: A firm can guarantee its own survival and prosperity through multiple expenditures. Marketing expenditures establish the enterprise’s reputation; advertisement expenditures help a firm stand out from its competitors; research and development expenditures promote the quality and competency of a firm’s products. Protection expenditure, meanwhile, plays an important role in guaranteeing operational stability. From time to time, disturbances such as crime and corruption emerge from either within or without, and disturb normal business processes. Accordingly, many firms adopt protection measures, either formally or informally.In the case of formal protection measures, firms will audit and officially report these ... Read More

  • Estimating export potential for a small open economy using a gravity model
           approach: evidence from Namibia
    • Abstract: Exports are important for the process of growth. They generate scarce foreign exchange reserves that are necessary to finance imports of goods such as energy and investment goods. These goods are crucial for the formation of capital and economic growth. Exports ease the pressure on the balance of payments and create the much-needed employment opportunities (Jordaan and Eita, 2007). An export-led growth strategy provides incentives through various government policies to producers to rather export their products. This increases the capability of producing goods and services that can compete in the world market using advanced technology which will provide foreign exchange needed to import goods and services. Exports ... Read More

  • Foreign bank entry and bank competition in Africa: an inverted u-shaped
           relation
    • Abstract: The presence of foreign banks in Africa has greatly increased over the past two decades. According to Claessens and van Horen (2014), the share of foreign banks increased from 31% of total banks in 1995 to 54% in 2009. This increase is the highest among developing and emerging economies (compared to an average of 24% in 1995 against 46% in 2009, and 18% in 1995 and 36% in 2009, for developing and emerging economies, respectively). At the same time, naturally the share of domestic African banks decreased from 69% in 1995 to 46% in 2009. The majority of foreign banks in Africa are a based in developed countries, specifically three former colonial powers: France, the United Kingdom, and Belgium.The objective of this ... Read More

  • Effect of corporate governance on ceo pay - risk taking association:
           empirical evidence from australian financial institutions
    • Abstract: CEO (chief executive officer) compensation continues to be a topic of great research interest to many finance academics (see Jensen & Meckling, 1976; Jensen & Murphy, 1990; Joskow & Rose, 1994; Merhebi et al., 2006; Murphy, 2012; Ndayisaba & Ahmed, 2015) and in financial press in Australia since the failure of the second largest insurance company (HIH Insurance) in 2001 (ACSI, 2015; Creighton, 2015). During Global Financial Crisis (GFC), many financial institutions went into liquidation while others were rescued by their governments. Erkens at al. (2012) argue that in 2008, the USA government bailout plan reached USD 700 billion, while in England bailing out financial institutions costed British taxpayers USD 750 ... Read More

  • Determinants of profitability of financial institutions in Latin America
           and the Caribbean
    • Abstract: The financial landscape across the world has changed tremendously over the past decade. In earlier years, studies have been conducted on the financial sector in the developed markets; see Berger and Humphrey (1997) for an extensive survey of literature. In more recent times, researchers have started to do research in lesser developed financial markets (e.g., Almazari, 2012). Very little if any work has been done on the Latin America and Caribbean financial sectors. This paper presents a detailed analysis of the factors that impact the profitability of the banking sector in this region.Latin America and the Caribbean countries are often considered as a single bloc, especially in United Nations organizations and OECD ...

  • Official development assistance, volatility and per capita real gdp growth
           in sub-Saharan African countries: a comparative regional analysis
    • Abstract: International development assistance in the form of foreign aid or unilateral capital transfers represent an important channel through which wealth is transferred from the rich developed nations to the poor underdeveloped nations (Chatterjee and Turnosky, 2005). Asher (1966) identified the justification for aid programmes as follows: rehabilitation and reconstruction of the economies of war-devastated nations, strengthening and subsidizing the military defence of the free world, and promotion of economic growth and political stability of the underdeveloped countries. The later fits into the case of developing countries of Africa.The theoretical foundation for the proposition that aid can promote economic ... Read More

  • Human capital, credit, and startup motives: a study among rural

    • Abstract: Inequality in the distribution of wealth is one of the most widely discussed and controversial issues and a daily growing concern. In order to minimize the inequality and its devastating consequences, the World Bank group, local governments, and other international aid agencies have focused on providing targeted assistance for the development and growth of small and medium size enterprises (SME) all over the world (Beck, Demirguc-Kunt and Levine, 2005). This is because of the positive role of small enterprises in general and newly started enterprises in particular are widely acknowledged in development literature. Micro-enterprises play a crucial role in socio-economic development among the low-income households ... Read More

  • The impact of expatriates’ home country culture on their time to
           proficiency: empirical evidence from the Indian context
    • Abstract: International assignment issues figure prominently in the international human resource management (IHRM) agenda, owing to their importance in the global coordination and integration of resources and operations (eds. Björkman & Stahl 2006: p.8). Given the high cost of expatriation, there is pressure to ensure that they are managed in a cost-effective manner. That implies that they should adjust to their new environment and become proficient there as quickly as possible (Sinangil and Ones 1997).The extensive literature on expatriate adjustment largely assumes that adjustment equates with performance on the job, though few scholars have examined this issue directly (Bhaskar-Shrinivas, Harrison, Shaffer and Luk 2005; ...

  • Impacts of tax and firing costs on size of the informal sector and
           unemployment
    • Abstract: Our paper estimates the effect of firing costs on the size of the informal sector (IS) and the unemployment rate. We show that higher firing costs has a significant negative effect on the size of the IS and a significant positive effect on the unemployment rate. Our motivation is driven by the observation that most of the literature have used search and matching models to explain the effects of firing costs on both the IS and unemployment rate without measuring these effects empirically.We aim to bridge the gap in the empirical and theoretical literature because we demonstrate that the IS offers a second best opportunity for entrepreneurs and workers to engage in competitive markets. This is because we show that ... Read More

  • Forest products exports and economic growth: evidence from rich countries
    • Abstract: Forest resources have been a major source of economic development for many states. They do not only cater for wood, wild foods, medicines, soil conservation, carbon dioxide storage, and landscape beauty but additionally contribute in stimulating foreign exchange earnings, employment and economic growth. Forests indeed epitomize a productive asset which can be employed as a means for attaining national development goals, including equity, stability, investment and growth (Food and Agricultural Organization, FAO 2005). According to the FAO (2009), the forest sector contributes about US$ 468 billion to national income, representing about 1% of global GDP in 2006. The question of whether there is a causal relationship ... Read More

  • Expectations and experiences of self-managed superannuation fund trustees
    • Abstract: Australian self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs) currently hold over 30% of total superannuation assets and represent more than 99% of all superannuation entities. More than 500,000 SMSF entities were registered with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) at 30 June 2014 with over a million members and an average account balance of over $500,000 (ATO 2015). Due to its rapid growth, the SMSF sector has become a point of interest for regulators, stakeholders, and industry commentators (SMSFAdviser 2013). Nevertheless, the activities and practices of SMSF trustees have only been examined at a macro level. An exploratory investigation at the individual fund’s level will provide useful insights into SMSF trustees’ ... Read More
