  • Monetary Policy and Stock/Foreign Exchange Market Liquidity: The Japanese
           Case

    • Authors: Yutaka KURIHARA
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: . This paper examines changes in liquidity of the stock market and foreign exchange market in response to monetary policy announcements of the Bank of Japan. In Japan, an unconventional monetary policy started from the year of 2001.This article reports on an empirical examination of the period from the beginning of the unconventional monetary policy to the present. Liquidity impairment in the foreign exchange market in Japan associated with announcements and conduct of monetary policy does not occur; however, such impairments normally do not occur. For the Japanese stock market, trade volume is associated with liquidity and the phenomenon occurs on the usual days. Market participants who obtain information about monetary policy are not subject to surprise and markets impairments do not happen as a result of the conduct of monetary policy in Japan. At least, these markets do not accept monetary policy conduct as a surprise.Keywords. Foreign exchange market, Liquidity, Monetary policy, Stock market.JEL. E52, E58, F31, G12.

  • The Potential Driving Forces of Wealth Accumulation by South Korea‚Äôs
           Leading Shipbuilding Giants: Wage-Labor Nexus and Dual-channel Capital
           Accumulation

    • Authors: WooJin KIM
      Pages: 9 - 29
      Abstract: . This study explores how institutional factors increase the possibility of Korea’s three main shipbuilders’ capital accumulation and what effect institutional factors have on their capital accumulation. By examining the structural features of these shipbuilders’ labor and changes in their wage-labor nexus, the mechanisms of dual-channel capital accumulation are better understood. Ultimately, our findings show that dual-channel capital accumulation, which allows three shipbuilders to secure the practicality of overall loss minimization or overall profit maximization, has been created through the evolution of their labor structure.Keywords. Dual-channel capital accumulation, Wage–labor nexus, Korean shipbuilders, Structural transformation, Shipbuilding and offshore industry.JEL. D22, J21, J31, L62.

  • Short Term versus Long Term Economic Planning in Pakistan: The Dilemma

    • Authors: Dawood MAMOON, Muhammad Rabbi AHSAN
      Pages: 30 - 40
      Abstract: . For long term and sustainable economic development, countries have to start from somewhere. Thus there is a distinction between short term planning and long term gaols setting. However countries like Pakistan have mostly fell into the trap of economic plans that focus on year to year goals setting or in other words macroeconomic stabilisation and usually fail to link policies with long term plans. The paper presents data that supports the hypothesis that it is the initiative of governments and not the donors to link long term economic progress with short term policies. China is a good example in this regards.Keywords. Economic Planning, Dilemma.JEL O20, O21, O24.

  • A Commentary on Taiwan’s Creative and Cultural Industries

    • Authors: Tzu-Yorn KAO, Wenyi HUANG
      Pages: 50 - 53
      Abstract: . A commentary is offered for the further development of Taiwanese cultural and creative industries (CCI). Although there have been some scant successful cases in the context, more systematic and value co-creating efforts should be committed. The issues mentioned are especially important for CCI in a knowledge heterogeneous business world, due to the cross-sector collaboration nature of the phenomenon.Keywords. Creative and cultural industries, Commentary, Value Co-creation.JEL. M10, M11, M14.

  • Does Social Capital Have an Effect on Industry Production in G7
           Countries? Causality Analysis

    • Authors: Oktay KIZILKAYA, Murat ÇETİNKAYA, Emrah SOFUOĞLU
      Pages: 54 - 63
      Abstract: . The relationship between social capital and economic growth has become an attractive research area in the literature recently. In this context, this paper examines the relationship between social capital indicators and industry production in the period of 2006-2014 with monthly data for the G7 countries. For empirical analysis, panel causality analysis method developed by Dumitrescu & Hurlin (2012) was used. Results indicate that there is a bidirectional relationship between social capital indicators and industry production. These findings support feedback hypothesis in the context of social capital and economic growth in the G7 countries.Keywords. Social capital, Industry production, Economic growth, Panel causality, G7 Countries.JEL. F63, J24, O47.

  • The Impact of Technical Regulations on Trade: Evidence from South Africa

    • Authors: Puruweti SIYAKIYA
      Pages: 64 - 75
      Abstract: . The purpose of this study is to investigate empirically the impact of technical barriers to trade (TBTs) by using the gravity model. The study used data from South Africa’s exports of all products and other product groupings destined to 57 selected countries which comprise both developing and developed countries. To control for misspecification error the study incorporated other explanatory variables. STATA system version 13 was used to analyse the regression of data ranging from 1995 to 2015. The results revealed that TBT notifications in general are trade restrictive. The regression results unravel that TBTs negatively affect mechanic and electrical products more than other product groupings. Accordingly for all exports in general the study’s findings are an increase in the number of TBTs has an effect of reducing exports by 4.88% on average. Given the results from the study it is imperative for South Africa to harmonise its standards with its trading partners.Keywords. Gravity model, South Africa, Technical regulation, WTO.JEL. F10, F40.
