  • Budget Policies During and After the Oil Crisis of 2014: Comparative
           Analysis of Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Kuwait

    • Abstract: This paper explored how some Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries employed budget policies to manage their budget deficits in the fiscal years between 2014 and 2018. Empirically, this study attempted to summarize and critically analyze several approaches of economic strategies that countries utilized such as sovereign wealth fund, revenue-increasing policies, and expenditure-reducing policies in response to budget deficits during and after the oil crisis of 2014. Secondary data were gathered from the ministry of finance reports as well as various official documents covering three different GCC countries, which are Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait. The findings of this study showed distinct patterns in a three-country approach to manage their budget deficits. Saudi Arabia and UAE implemented a comparatively more balanced approach between increasing revenues and reducing expenditure. On the other hand, Kuwait focused on reducing their budget expenditures and adopted policies that promoted across the board cuts and is relatively relying more on oil revenues to balance the budget.

  • The Discussion on Input – Output Framework Extended for Analyzing on
           Relationship between Demographic and Economic

    • Abstract: So far, many studies on economic structure have been proposed, Studies on the relationship between demographics and communication economics basically consider changes in age structure, leading to changes in saving and investment capacity. In Miyazawa's demographic-economic model, the focus has been on quantifying the relationship of final consumer groups and corresponding income groups. This study tries to establish the relationship between age and output and income. This study tries an attempt to extended Miyazawa’s model which gross capital formation at columns and operating surplus at rows. That means the input – output system was not only extended aging group at consumption of employees at rows and final household consumption at columns, but alsoadd to gross capital formation at columns and total income of producers (operating surplus and exogenous income) at rows. In this system, it is allowed to consider changing population structure which not only affects economy through saving or investment but also the structure of final consumption by age also spreads to output and income. So, in this research is not only this related inter-sartorial at first-time distribution for considering but also the impact of demographic to economic activities and re-distribution income follow by type of aging group.

This study, using case study, examines the impact of sustainability policies implemented by some company operating in the fashion industry. Starting from these premises, the work intends to describe and analyze the application of the concept of sustainability in the field of fashion industry, focusing in particular on the Adidas case.

  • Seven Snags of Research Ethics on the Qualitative Research Voyage

    • Abstract: Responsible researchers with ethically sound research skills are fundamental to success in an ever-changing business and social world. Embedding ethics into research by students seems to be intuitively easy given tight, standardized ethical guidelines and rigorous ethical approval process in the university. In reality, there are Masters and PhD research students who feel ill-prepared when they encounter ethical ambiguities and complexities in the field which are unique, beyond what they had foreseen at the outset of a qualitative inquiry or were prescribed, advised and forewarned by a research ethics committee (REC).The aim of this conceptual paper is to discuss seven pitfalls of research ethics in a qualitative research voyage in order to educate and sensitize current and prospective research students. The seven pitfalls are: (1) complexity and ambiguity of informed consent; (2) embedding informed consent as a process rather than an event; (3) navigating the moral conundrum of unintentional disclosure; (4) dealing with deductive disclosure; (5) dialectic between participant`s desire for recognition and greater confidentiality; (6) researcher role conflict and (7) difficulty of embedding researcher reflexivity. The paper concludes that only research students who are ethically literate and actively reflexive in the entire research process are more likely to know whenever they encounter ethical pitfalls, deal with them properly; and ultimately entrench relevant skills to conduct ethically sound research. Highlighted are implications for research educators to develop research competence of current and future researchers.
