  • Executive Compensation And Banking Sector Performance: Evidence From
           Nigeria
    • Abstract: Following the global financial crisis and the massive erosion of shareholder value as a result of wide spread market collapse; there has been a renewed interest in the levels of executive compensation, especially in the banking sector. The growing interest in executive compensation is not only limited to academia but also to the public (Southam & Sapp, 2010). This interest is informed by the general perception that the financial services industries, especially the banks, were responsible for the crisis. Also, there is the general perception that the executive compensation of bank CEOs and executives is excessive and not correlated to the performance of the banks. In addition, in the face of weak corporate ... Read More

  • Bank, Stock Market And Economic Growth: Bangladesh Perspective
    • Abstract: A large body of literature indicates positive influence of the development of a country's financial sector on its economic growth. Empirical findings seem consistent with this argument (Schumpeter 1912, Levine and Sarah Zervos 1998, Arestis et al. 2001). Levine and Zervos (1998), Rajan and Zingles (1998) and Beck and Levine (2004) demonstrate the importance of both banks and equity markets for economic growth. Herring and Chatusripitak (2001) note that the absence of a bond market may render an economy less efficient and significantly more vulnerable to financial crisis.Is there any predicament if financial system of a country is heavily dependent on a single source of finance particularly on bank based finance? ...

  • Macroeconomic Determinants Of Non-Performing Loans In Nigeria: An
           Empirical Analysis
    • Abstract: The intermediation role of banks, which is vital for the development of any nation, is affected by non-performing loans. Literature and practice have shown that non-performing loans are the leading cause of financial crises (Brownbridge, 1998; Greenidge & Grosvenor, 2010). Fan and Shaffer (2004) and Girardone et al. (2004) documented in their research findings that bad management and inefficiency of banks have been the major causes of non-performing loans. The study conducted by Caprio and Klingebiel (2002) showed that in Indonesia between 1997 and 2002, 70 banks failed during a financial crisis caused by a surge of non-performing loans. In another study conducted by Fofack (2005), it was found that non-performing ... Read More

  • The Effect Of Earnings Quality On The Predictbaility Of Accruals And Cash
           Flow Models In Forcasting Future Cash Flows
    • Abstract: Estimating future cash flow is important for all stakeholders, but it is more important for shareholders and creditors. Shareholders might be concerned with long term cash generating in order to estimate the firms' value, whereas the creditors are concerned in estimating the ability of a company in generating short-term cash flow. The question raised is: which is better to predict future cash flows current earnings, current cash flows or accruals in conjunction with cash flows? Main accounting boards (i.e. International Financial Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB)) indicate that current cash flow is not sufficient alone to predict future cash flow. One of the ... Read More

  • Macro Determinants Of Car In Indian Banking Sector
    • Abstract: As defined by central bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), "Capital to risk weighted assets ratio is arrived at by dividing the capital of the bank with aggregated risk weighted assets for credit risk, market risk and operational risk".1 This ratio shows the bank's risk absorption capacity arising out of its investment portfolio. The global financial crisis of 2008 rekindled the research in banking sector particularly its profitability and CAR. The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers and the collapse of big investment banks in USA prompted countries across the world to restructure their banking systems. India with its robust banking sector and protectionist policies survived the aftermath of this crisis without a ... Read More

  • Measuring Financial Condition Of Urban Local Government: A Study Of
           Municipalities In Bangladesh
    • Abstract: Over the last few decades, research on financial conditions of local governments has gained significant momentum in the wake of financial problems faced by these organisations due to rising demands, shifting population, and raising cost of providing services (Hendrick, 2004; Zafra-Gomez, Lopez-Harnandez and Harnandez-Bastida, 2009a). Since traditional budgetary, balance sheet or operating statement analyses are narrowly focused and fail to provide a broader perspective to identify existing or emerging problems (Groves, Godsay and Shulman, 1981), researchers have emphasized on studying government's financial condition which gives rise to a significant body of literature in this area (Hendrick, 2004; Rivenbark and ...

  • Labor Productivity And Social Policy In Latin America
    • Abstract: Recent literature has presented evidence on Latin American countries' dismal labor productivity, which revealed that it grew at at yearly rates of 4 percent between 1950 and 1975, and fell to 1.6 percent between 1975 and 2005. This low productivity growth has been identified as the cause of low rates of economic growth in the last three decades (Daude and Fernandez-Arias, 2010). Stagnant productivity is a topic that causes preocupation given that it is one of the principal determinants of economic development, competitiveness, and rising wages (IADB, 2010). The deterioration of productivity in Latin America has ocurred when the macroeconomy is more stable than in the past and after the economies undertook ambitious ... Read More

Bangladesh Bank uses several instruments like repo, reverse repo, Bangladesh Bank bills as open market instruments to achieve its target and goals.

  • Urbanization And Temperature Change-Accounting For International
           Differences From Brics
    • Abstract: Urbanization is one of the key factors behind the increasing global temperature. Over the last 50 years (1956-2005), the annual average temperature of the world has been increased by 0.13 C (IPCC, 2007). Almazroui et al (2013) have found significant relation between temperature increase and urbanization across Saudi Arabia. Increasing urbanization followed by destruction of forests has fueled the mean temperature across the economies. The so called urban heat island emanates from the growing base of urban population and rising perimeter of the urban space. The growth of urban population has resulted in more industrialization, modernization and more per-capita usages of vehicles (Arnfield, 2003). With the global ... Read More

    • Abstract: Among the major objectives of macroeconomic policies in any developing country is sustained economic growth (Akinboade and Braimoh 2010). International tourism plays an integral role in enhancing sustainable economic development worldwide (Wahab and Piqram 1997; Fossati and Panella 2000). Several studies have confirmed that international tourism is important for long-run economic growth (Balaguer and Cantavella-Jordà 2002; Dritsakis 2004, Oh 2005; Gunduz and Hatemi 2005). Countries which are highly dependent on international tourism have been found to grow faster than their non-tourism counterparts (Brau, Lanza and Pigliaru, 2003). There is evidence that tourism is welfare enhancing if non-traded goods, which are ... Read More

It started in the 1950s and 1960s with transportation and warehousing services, followed improve productivity and cost reduction in 1970s and value-added services such as packaging, labeling, and system support in 1980s. Until the 1990s, the logistics services expanded into a number of services including import/export management, freight forwarding, distribution, freight consolidation, and reverse logistics. This situation is the output of globalization and modernization of a revolving market, which vitally supports global or domestic competitiveness. Subsequently the logistics market is evolving to ...

  • An Econometric Analysis Of Energy Revenue And Government Expenditure
           Shocks On Economic Growth In Trinidad And Tobago
    • Abstract: Economic growth in resource-dependent countries tends to be highly correlated with changes in commodity prices. Growth in the energy sector typically accelerates during periods of high energy prices and in some cases has an expansionary effect on the nonenergy sector. However, being resource-dependent increases one's vulnerability to external shocks, more so if the resource wealth that is generated during the boom periods is not managed optimally. In energy-dependent countries, fiscal vulnerabilities are further amplified as a result of volatility in energy prices, which translates to unstable revenue flows. In addition, the procyclical nature of fiscal policy induces inflationary pressures in the economy, which ... Read More

  • Does FDI Really Affect Employment In Host Countries?: Subsidiary Level

    • Abstract: Despite the recent economic downturn, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) continues to flow to countries around the world, exceeding $1 trillion each year since 2005 according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). FDI is perceived as an engine of growth by many policymakers because it can generate productivity spillovers in the host economy, increase the volume and efficiency of investment, augment the stock of knowledge, facilitate new technology, generate chains of new local suppliers, and open new markets. Policymakers also perceive that the growth effects of FDI will create jobs in the host countries. For these reasons, many host countries actively pursue Multinational Corporations ... Read More

Despite their relentless efforts, the portion of nonbank people is still precariously high. About half of the world adults are still out of formal financial services (World Bank, 2014). In addition of voluntary exclusion, several other forces deter peoples from using financial services even when they are willing to use those. This involuntary exclusion is especially severe in developing countries where the infrastructures of financial institution are still weak. Bangladesh as a developing country has been experiencing a radical transformation of its economic and financial system. Despite political ... Read More

  • What Drives Outward Fdi Of China?: A Regional Analysis
    • Abstract: Since the implementation of the reform and opening up policy in 1978, China has been attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) from the rest of the world and has become one of the world's largest FDI destinations. In the past two decades, however, a new trend has emerged – there has been a dramatic increase in China's outward FDI (OFDI), especially after the national policy of encouraging domestic investment to "go out" of China in 1999 (see Table 1). In 2011, China was the world's 6th largest source of FDI. Alongside the impressive growth of overseas investment, a fair amount of literature has emerged explaining the determinants of China's OFDI at country- (e.g. Liu et al., 2005; Buckley et al., 2007; Cheng & Ma ...

  • Volatility And Trade: The Case Of South Africa's Exports To China

New patterns of foreign direct investment, aid, and trade, and the consequences for economic growth, are the subjects of widespread attention and analysis. For much of SSA, the recent slowdown in China's industrial production, alongside falling energy and commodity prices, threatens to undermine the prosperity realized during the boom.Nevertheless, Sub-Saharan Africa is a very heterogeneous region, where resources, cultures, histories and economic institutions vary widely. Accordingly, country-level studies are important for providing detail and avoiding aggregation bias. South Africa ... Read More

In the verge of rising awareness regarding business firms' impact on society and environment, competition pushed firms to consider activities through which they would create positive value to the society and, ultimately, enhancing firms' value in the market which help firms to be sustainable. Such value creating initiatives are now popularly known as CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. At first, it may seem that being involved in CSR activities is costly, but as the market appreciates such initiatives positively, the firms get their return in the long-run. However, the value creation of ... Read More

  • The Impact Of Interest Rate Volatility On Stock Market Development:

Levine (1997) argues that financial system facilitates the allocation of financial resources for productive purposes and mobilizes savings. This, in turn, will increase the amount of resources available to finance investment and monitor investment projects by reducing information acquisition costs. As a key component of financial system, stock market plays a crucial role toward achieving economic growth of the country. In this context, various economic factors have been found to explain part of the variation of the performance of stock markets around ... Read More

  • Corruption In Public Procurement And Social Welfare
    • Abstract: Government procurement contracts for large construction projects generate immense opportunities for bribes, kickbacks, and other payoffs. Corrupt payments to win such contracts are generally the preserve of large businesses and high-level officials. There are several reasons why a firm would want to pay a bribe to a high-level official when bidding for a large scale project. First it may induce the official to include the firm in the short list of firms qualified to bid for the project while limiting the number of other bidding firms. Second it may be for inside information that would ultimately provide the firm with a competitive advantage. Third it may induce the official to customize project specifications to ... Read More

  • Can Agricultural Input Subsidy Help The Poor More Than Food Aid Supplies
           In Malawi?
    • Abstract: Unexpected transitory reductions in food production can have a dramatic effect on food consumption. Several mechanisms are available to stabilize food consumption and food security. These include commercial food supplies (domestic food production and imports) and food aid. Both options have been used to stabilize food consumption in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), where food supplies have been unstable over the last decade (Lavy, 1990). Lavy (1990) revealed further that countries with a high coefficient of variation of agricultural production receive more food aid. Malawi is not only the second poorest nation in the world measured by GNP per head (Bowie, 2006) but is also one of largest recipients of food aid in Africa ... Read More

  • Capital Punishment And Financial Reporting Fraud: Implications For Secular
           Countries
    • Abstract: A white-collar crime such as financial reporting fraud (FRF) could have a far-reaching negative impact on society because it threatens the economic welfare of a nation and changes the total fabric of society. While extant literature (e.g. Hossain et al. 2014) examines the justification of the death penalty for committing FRF in Islamic Societies, the issue of whether capital punishment could potentially deter FRF in non-Islamic societies is largely unexplored. This paper attempts to fill this gap. We do so in two ways. First, we critically analyze the extant theoretical literature and empirical findings both favoring and opposing the benefits of imposing capital punishment to combat financial crimes. Second, we ...

They mentioned that the firm's earning and investment affects only the market value and dividend policy have nothing to do with its market value. After Miller and Modigliani theory, many researches try to explain that dividend matters, and they tried to link it with the value of the firm, they call it dividend irrelevance hypothesis. Researchers tried to explain the dividend policy under different hypothesis namely; Bird in the Hand theory, agency cost theory, tax clientele theory and signaling theory.

  • Monetary Policy For Maintaining Low, Stable Inflation In Malaysia
    • Abstract: In an open-economy, price stability (i.e. low, stable inflation) plays a key role in maintaining macroeconomic stability. Macroeconomic stability promotes technological innovation, productive investment and hence raises economic growth (Fischer, 1993; Montiel, 2003). Analytically, exchange rate policy has moved to the center stage of macroeconomic policy because, under the open-economy trilemma condition,1 exchange rate policy has implications for macroeconomic stability and performance, including inflation and its stability. Exchange rate policy has indeed become important for an outward-oriented developing country such as Malaysia (Athukorala and Menon, 1999; Hossain, 2015a, 2015b).Malaysia has sustained rapid ...

Such trend have been driven by the expanded economic activities in which FDI, "investment by foreign companies in overseas subsidiaries or joint ventures has a traditional reliance on natural resource use and extraction, particularly agriculture, mineral and fuel production" stated by Mabey and McNally (1999) is considered as a vital contributor of the environmental degradation.

This evidence points to underlying problems in the organizational decision-making with respect to enterprise technologies. However, very few studies have gone beyond looking at implementation to tackle issues related to longer-term usage and the impacts of these technologies on organizations (Gosain 2004). This ...

  • On Rights And Dialogue: Minority Culture Women's Lives In Diaspora

The debates have been reignited with the occurrence of the tragic events such as the terrorist siege in Sydney in December 2014 and the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris in January 2015. These events are referred to as evidence that multiculturalism in the West has failed. At the centre of these debates is the claim that some cultural (and religious) groups 'subjugate women' are thus incompatible with our ways of life (see Aslan, 2015). The protagonists cite number of factors that make multiculturalism incompatible with liberal polity, however in this paper, due to ... Read More
