  • Competition between basic and applied research in the organizational
           behaviour of public research labs

    • Authors: Mario COCCIA
      Pages: 118 - 133
      Abstract: Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the competition between basic and applied research within public research organizations. International publications are considered here a proxy of basic research, whereas self-financing deriving from technology transfer activities is an indicator of applied research. Results suggest, within one of the largest European research organizations an increasing competition between basic and applied research, both in human and natural sciences, due to shrinking of public research lab budgets. In particular, institutes and scientists pay more attention to applied research activities, which are capable of attracting market funds for economic survival of public research labs but this organizational behaviour reduces basic research activity in the long run. Managerial and organizational behaviour of public research organizations are also discussed.Keywords. Applied research, Basic research, Public research organization, Public lab, Science policy, Organizational behaviour, Public management.JEL. B50, B59, I23, L20, L29, O33.

  • Interest rates volatility and its consequences on stock returns: The case
           study from Amman Stock Exchange, Jordan

    • Authors: Nada I. Abu ALJARAYESH, Lama K. ASFOUR, Shadi Y. Al-ABDALLAH
      Pages: 149 - 160
      Abstract: Abstract. This paper examines the special effects of interest rates on the stock market return by using monthly time series data for the economy of Jordan over the period of 2006 to 2016. An extensive variety of econometric procedures have been involved to analyze the relationship between the interest rate and stock market return. The study exposes a constant and significant long-run relationship between the variables. By using Cointegration methods the experimental in the long run represents that a one percent rise in interest rate causes (12.3459 %)reduction in market index. The assessed error correction coefficient highlight that (-0.678522) percent deviation of stock returns are corrected in the short run. Impulse response function of the study furthermore sustains the positive relationship between the variables. The result of Variance decompositions recommends that about (99.99705%) of the variation in stock market returns is referring to its own shock which denotes that stock market returns are mostly independent of the other variables in the structure. To go over the main points, Granger causality analysis yield that there is no presence of a unidirectional causality as of interest rate to the market index.Keywords.

  • Trade openness and economic growth in East African Community economies: A
           panel causality test

    • Authors: Zakayo S. KISAVA, Godwin A. MYOVELLA
      Pages: 161 - 168
      Abstract: Abstract. In spite of financial liberalization that has been discussed and studied over the past decades, the debate for the East African Community (EAC) still remain open on the relationship between trade openness and economic growth that has a link with trade-economic policies. This paper analyzes the relationship by employing the modern methodology of Dumistrescu & Hurlin (2012) Panel Causality test, The Test involved a scope of 46 years from 1970-2016. The empirical finding shows that there is a bidirectional movement (causality) as trade openness increase or relaxed lead to the growth of the economy in the East African Community. The results are supported by the endogenous growth theory that openness increases economic growth. There is a feedback relationship. The main operational implication of these empirical results is that the governments of the East African economies should dismantle barriers to trade to make sure that their intended objective is not ephemeral.Keywords. East African Community, Economic growth, Panel causality test, Trade openness.JEL. C59, F43, O24.

  • Economic growth, foreign direct investment and governance oscillation:
           Empirical evidence from SAARC economies (1996-2015)

    • Authors: Maryam NASIR, Raza Ali KHAN, Maham FATIMA
      Pages: 169 - 187
      Abstract: Abstract. Foreign direct investment (FDI) considered as one of the conventional determinant of Economic growth. Economies that are pursuing for better tomorrow must focus on attracting foreign direct Investments. FDI depends on a number of factors in a country such as market size, level of openness, natural resources, labor cost and productivity, economic growth rate, macroeconomic stability, technology level and so on. Beside these factors, Governance in the recipient economy is also an important pre-determinant of FDI. This study seeks to investigate the impact of FDI (inflows) on Economic growth via Governance through empirical evidence from SAARC economies by using Panel data technique. The data is cross-sectional time series for the period 1996-2015. GDP per capita growth has been used as a variable to assess Economic growth; foreign direct Investment (inflows) and governance data has obtained from World Bank, World Development Indicators. The results indicate that governance does not exert their impact on FDI (inflows) and fails to act as a mediating factor of FDI (inflows) in case of SAARC economies However the SAARC economies should focus on improving level of institutions for catalyzing domestic financial markets.Keywords. Foreign Direct investment (inflows), Governance, Economic Growth, Human Capital, Gross Capital Formation.JEL. F21.
