  • Determinants of Current Account Balance in Six ASEAN Countries: A Panel
           Analysis Approach

    • Abstract: This paper aims to examine the potential determinants of current account balance, which has been an interesting research topic in analysis over the decade. The relationship between current account balance and several different variables, such as fiscal balance, public debt, real GDP, and age dependency ratio for old and young, are examined. In this paper, the selected time period is from 1990 to 2016, in order to include the financial crisis period in six ASEAN countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam). To this end, the research is based on the estimation of panel unit root, panel cointegration, panel Vector Error-Correction Model (VECM) and panel Granger causality. The findings show that all variables are cointegrated in the long-run and there are also unidirectional and bidirectional causal relationships in the short-run.

  • Exporting Transparency Through Mergers

    • Abstract: Openness to trades can intensify competition in a country and confine the possibilities of rent creation and extraction. Mergers and acquisitions introduce competition in the markets and bring not only capital and technologies, but also new norms and policies. This study examines to what extend openness to trades and competition intensification through M&A could affect the level of corruption in a country. Our study focuses on the effect of M&A activity (as a proxy for openness to trades) on corruption levels. Using a large panel of 50 countries over a 16-year period, we find evidence that openness to trades helps countries reduce their level of corruption.

  • Investor Sentiment, Innovation Investment and Cash Dividend

    • Abstract: Investor sentiment plays a critical role in corporate innovation investment. Firms resort to innovation in their attempts to satisfying the demands of their investors. We argue empirically in our study that investor sentiment has impact on firms’ innovation decisions. We also argue that, strong negative sentiment has higher propensity to foster corporate innovation investment. We analyzed a nine- year panel data ranging from 2009-2017, which consisted of 3,558 Chinese listed firms. A verification of the impact of dividend policy on firms’ innovation investment was conducted. We found that, favorable dividend policy would trigger corporate innovation investment. We also found a statistically significant relationship between innovation investment and firm performance. Our findings showed a positive association between corporate innovation investment and firm performance. We also conducted a series of robustness checks on our empirical models and then discussed the contribution of our study, theoretically and practically.

  • The Insurance Value of Trade Credit

    • Abstract: The extensive use of trade credit in all manufacturing sectors, despite its high cost, is an apparent puzzle that economists explain in terms of asymmetric information problems affecting financial markets. The financial constraints arising from credit rationing and limited access to stock markets suffice to induce firms to resort to trade credit as a supplemental source of funding. Nonetheless, empirical evidence shows that also large and liquid firms facing no binding financial constraints use substantial amounts of trade credit. We address this issue by modelling the financial policy of a firm that does not face a binding liquidity constraint but the risk of being constrained in the future. We characterise the optimal amount of trade credit held by such a firm, and we show that a positive probability of facing a liquidity constraint leads the firm to fund its inventories with trade credit, even if cheaper sources of funds are available. The rationale is that trade credit provides implicit coverage against liquidity risk. Therefore, the optimal amount of trade credit grows with the expected size of a possible liquidity shock and with the likelihood of its occurrence.

  • Causes of Involuntary Unemployment in Brazil

    • Abstract: Unemployment has been approached in research focusing on macroeconomic aspects, but from the microeconomic perspective, the literature is still recent. The objective of this work is to analyze the determinants of involuntary unemployment in Brazil. Thus, a Logit model is applied to data from the 2015 National Household Sample Survey (PNAD). Among the results, we find that younger individuals, living in rural areas, which have less education, tend to be more in involuntary unemployment. Also, analyzing the marginal effects of race and marital status, non-white and/or unmarried individuals are more likely to be unemployed, suggesting possible discrimination.

  • The Spatial Spillover Effect of Financial Agglomeration on China’s
           Regional Economic Growth

    • Abstract: With the development of economic globalization and economic integration, the regional capital flow accelerated, the flow of resources to expand the scope of the financial industry agglomeration effect is most obvious, leading to form a financial center in some areas highly concentrated. The paper analyzes the agglomeration of China’s current banking industry, securities industry and the insurance industry three big financial pillar industries, through the establishment of comprehensive evaluation index system of financial agglomeration, of China’s provinces (municipalities and autonomous regions) of the financial agglomeration level determination. The relevant panel data collected from 2006-2015 in 31 provinces in China, combined with the geographical position, building spatial econometric model, to study China’s financial agglomeration on the spatial spillover effect of economic growth. The empirical results show that the provincial financial agglomeration has a significant impact on the economy and the surrounding provinces, and has a significant spatial spillover effect. At the same time, the financial agglomeration has different characteristics on the economic development of the eastern, central and western regions. The paper puts forward some policy suggestions on the development of the financial industry under the new situation of the supply side reform in different regions.

  • Institutional Efficiency and Attraction of Foreign Direct Investment to
           Developing Countries

    • Abstract: The paper estimates the impact of institutions’ quality on the attraction of foreign direct investment (FDI) to developing countries. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) was used to develop a new measure of quality of institutions: Institutional Efficiency Index (IEI). In order to appraise quantitatively the effect of institutional quality on FDI entry, we used a panel data regression analysis on a dataset covering 40 countries from different developing regions for which the necessary data were accessible during the period 2011-2015. The paper argues that the institutional efficiency, as a measure of institutional quality, enhances the attractiveness of developing countries to FDI. The results of this paper suggest that FDI is mainly determined by institutional quality. A host country endowed with a high quality of institutions will be more attractive to foreign investors. In order to improve their competitiveness in term of attraction of foreign investment, developing countries should work more on providing a stable environment as well as on the transparency of policy implementation regarding the entry of multinational companies.

  • Profit Shares as Virtual Equity: Short-Run Isomorphism of Share & Wage

    • Abstract: An important argument in favor of public policy to promote profit-sharing arrangements – and one that distinguishes it from the canonical wage system – is that it creates a macroeconomic externality in the form of short-run excess demand for labor. In this paper we provide insights new in the literature to show that the two systems are isomorphic. We consider the most plausible basis for the distribution of the profits between labor and capital to be one that is conceptually consistent with the functional role of labor as a residual claimant. We postulate a sharing rule that is based on the recognition that in a profit-sharing system a portion of labor’s contribution is a form of equity – virtual equity – analogous to shareholder equity. With this interpretation, if the share parameter of worker pay is endogenously determined then we show that, eschewing any independent productivity effects, a profit-sharing system is not consistent with said macroeconomic externality. This analysis provides a framework to assess recent public policy initiatives and legislative proposals on both sides of the Atlantic, arguing that their advocation can be based on distributive but not efficiency grounds.

  • Zero-Leverage Policy: Is the Family Nature of Private Firms Relevant'

    • Abstract: This work investigates whether being a family business influences a private firm’s propensity to be leveraged and the underlying reasons behind such propensity. Analysis focuses on a sample of Italian private family and non-family firms for the period from 2008-2017. Socioemotional and corporate governance considerations cause agency conflicts to be negligible in Italian private family firms, and thus the use of debt is unrelated to these conflicts. Nevertheless, these enterprises are more likely to eschew a zero-debt policy, as opposed to their non-family counterparts. This is due to the socioemotional orientation of Italian private family firms, that is the desire of their family owners to keep long-term control over the business, through the use of leverage, which prevails over risk aversion.

  • The Relationship of Insider Trading Announcements, Ownership Structure and
           Corporate Governance: An Event Study Analysis of Athens Stock Exchange
           Market Technology Firms

    • Abstract: In the present paper, the relationship between corporate governance mechanisms of a firm and stock returns triggered by insider trading announcements is examined. Event study methodology has been used to evaluate the influence of 636 insider trading announcements performed by executives of 14 listed firms in the Athens Stock Exchange, that operate in the technology sector, during the period 2007-2013. The relationship between cumulative abnormal stock returns (CARs), caused by the announcements, and corporate governance characteristics, was then examined for different time windows, both for sales and purchases of stocks by insiders. Our findings suggest that insider trading, especially in purchases, performed by CEOs and members of the Boards of Directors, has a significant effect on stock returns in the long run. More specifically concentrated ownership structures and control were found to have a negative/positive effect in abnormal stock returns of the firms only in long-term periods of time following the announcement of purchases/sales.

  • Political Connection Impairs Enterprise Innovation: An Empirical Study
           Based on Chinese Private Listed Enterprises

    • Abstract: Based on various data of the private listed companies in China, this paper stuides the impact of political connections on corporate innovation capabilities. Political connection can improve corporate value, bring financing convenience, tax benefits as well as government subsidy to affiliated enterprises. On the other hand, political connection helps affiliated enterprises enter the monopoly industries, which weakens their willingness to engage in innovative activities. The empirical studies reveal that political connection has a negative innovation effect, due to it raises the entry level of entering barrier industry in affiliated enterprises.
