  • Cultural modernization and work-related values and attitudes: an
           application of Inglehart‚Äôs theory
    • First page: 130
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose This study relies on Modernization theory to analyze and explain the cross-national differences in work-related values and attitudes. Design/methodology/approach First, Modernization theory and work-related values and attitudes are conceptualized, their relations are discussed, and the hypotheses are formulated. Next, the data, measures, variables and empirical tests are presented. Finally, the theoretical and managerial implications are discussed, an integrative model is proposed, and avenues for future research are suggested. Findings The empirical results confirm the explanatory strength of Modernization theory and provide valuable insights into the patterns of work-related values and attitudes across the world. It is found that the countries involved in the first phase of human development emphasize work centrality, extrinsic aspects of a job, and material rewards, and are likely to show noticeable discrimination against women and foreign workers. By contrast, post-industrial societies that are involved in the second phase of human development prefer emancipative work-related values and attitudes such as low work centrality, tolerance of foreign workers, gender equality, and hedonism at the workplace. Research limitations/implications Despite the remarkable acceptance of Modernization theory, some of Inglehart’s propositions have been subject to criticism. Furthermore, human development, modernization, and the subsequent cultural shifts are ‘path-dependent’ as they are affected also by the national, religious, and civilization heritage of a country. Practical implications The findings of this study can help international mangers adopt the appropriate strategies for a wide range of issues, such as staffing, planning, job description, and compensation policies. Originality/value Modernization theory is a suitable alternative to national cultural dimensions. This approach relies on the premise that socio economic development creates consistent patterns of values, beliefs, and behaviors that ultimately shape work-related values and attitudes around the globe.

  • Dams on a Myanmar-Thai transboundary river: unequal hydropower exchange
           model in critical hydropolitical perspective
    • First page: 147
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims at studying dams on transboundary rivers. The case of Nu/Salween/Thanlwin River is reviewed. It is an attempt to develop a conceptual model in explaining the unequal hydropower exchange of hydropower dams on transboundary rivers. Design/methodology/approach This paper reviews big dam project plans on the Salween/Thanlwin River near the Myanmar-Thai border in the perspective of critical hydropolitics. The evidence is drawn from an extensive review of academic literature, reports, newspapers and websites on this topic. Cascao and Zeitoun’s (2010) four pillars of power, namely: geographical, material, bargaining, and ideational power are reviewed in the case of Salween/Thanlwin River and its riparian states. Findings Based on the realist discourse, power relationships in dams and its socio-environmental impacts are discussed in the perspective of critical hydropolitics. Multilevel of power asymmetry regarding geographical, material, bargaining and ideational power are observed. The powerful states are high electricity consumers and importers. They invest in hydroelectric dams of adjacent developing states and buy back most of the electricity generated to fuel their industrialization and urbanization. Weak states generally do not have high bargaining power. They depend on the investment of high material power states for domestic economic development and gain from the export of electricity. However, the externalities of hydropower dams are transferred to these weak states. This contributes to an unequal hydropower exchange model. Practical implications The model provides an analytical framework for hydropower dam projects which comprehensive and multidimensional views are extracted. Academia, policymakers, private developers, international development agencies and nongovernment organizations will have a better understanding of hydropower dam projects and the interactions among riparian states. Originality/value This conceptual model stems from Cascao and Zeitoun’s (2010) four pillars of power- geographical, material, bargaining, and ideational power. The author limits the framework to hydroelectric dams in transboundary rivers. The powerful states are high electricity consumers and importers which dominate the dam development projects and exchange process.

  • Innovative partnerships resulting from high skilled emigration
    • First page: 161
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose This paper examines whether emigration of high skilled labor creates a positive effect in the home country by generating multi-country joint patent relationships between home and destination country-pairs. Design/methodology/approach A panel of data that uniquely captures the country of origin of patent applicants is utilized to assess if and how high skilled emigration contributes to the prevalence of multi-country joint patents in a country. The analysis is conducted both in aggregate, as well as across sub-samples based on the per capita income level of the home country. Finally, the role of absorptive capacity as a control variable is robustly considered. Findings Results suggest that emigration of high skilled labor positively impacts prevalence of multi-country joint patent ownership when emigration originates from middle and high income countries. Support for such ‘brain gain’ via knowledge sharing in innovation is absent when high skilled labor emigrates from low income countries. Originality/value The analysis highlights a specific avenue by which the home country benefits from high skilled emigration. It also provides comparative analysis across home countries of different income levels, which can provide insight into the external validity of papers utilizing high income country samples of innovative performance when assessing knowledge spillovers.

  • Nutrition and economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa: a causality test
           using panel data
    • First page: 174
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose The study investigates the causal relationship between nutrition and economic growth in sub Saharan Africa (SSA). Design/methodology/approach A dynamic panel causality test based on the Blundell-Bond’s system generalized methods-of-moment (GMM) was employed. To make efficient inference for the estimates, we check for the panel unit root and co-integration relationship amongst the variables. Findings The variables were found to be non-stationary at level, stationary after first difference and co-integrated. The results of the causality tests reveal evidence of long and short-run bi-directional causality between nutrition and economic growth; which implies that nutritional improvement is a cause and consequence of economic growth and vice versa. Originality/value The first study to consider causality between nutrition and economic growth in the region

  • Financial inclusion, biometric identification and mobile: unlocking the
           JAM trinity
    • First page: 190
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose While several facets of mobile telephony have been extensively studied, one aspect that has largely bypassed the attention of researchers is its interlinkage with financial inclusion and how it interacts with biometric identification. To investigate this in detail, we employ household-level data on India to examine the interlinkage among PMJDY account, Aadhaar card and mobile telephony. Design/methodology/approach Given the survey data, we employ 3SLS methodology to explore the association among these key variables, while controlling for other household, district and economy-wide factors. Findings The findings provide strong evidence of complementarity among these variables, with each tending to reinforce the other. This complementarity is reflected primarily in respect of PMJDY and Aadhaar, but much less so with regard to mobile telephony. Additionally, this complementarity is manifest more prominently in the long-run, although it is much less so in the short-run. Originality/value To the best of our knowledge, this is one of the earliest studies for India to systematically examine the Jan-Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM) trinity.

  • Paying for education among households in Ghana: is there any role for
           household resources and contextual effects?
    • First page: 214
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 2, July 2017.
      Purpose Using data from the sixth round of the Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS VI), the paper takes a critical look at issues relating to the demand for education in Ghana. Design/methodology/approach In doing this, the paper develops a model for the determinants of household’s educational expenditure using the full sample of data and an income-quintile disaggregated model of the determinants of household’s educational expenditures. The study adopts robust empirical estimation techniques to estimate the model. Findings The paper finds that household resources, importantly influence children’s educational expenditures with wealthier households spending proportionately more in educating their children than poorer households; large-sized households spend more in terms of educational expenses than small-sized households, reflecting largely the quantity of education purchased given quality; and contextual factors matters for educational investments. Strikingly, the findings show that female headship is a significant positive predictor of households’ demand for education. These findings provide valuable policy options relating to the goal of ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promote a lifelong learning by 2030. Originality/value While literature on the determinants of households’ educational expenditures abound, very few of this literature focuses on sub-Saharan Africa. Consequently, this study makes an important contribution to the literature by providing evidence on the determinants of households’ educational expenditure in the context of sub-Saharan Africa.

  • Trade, aid and terror
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This study assesses the role of foreign aid in reducing the hypothetically negative impact of terrorism on trade using a panel of 78 developing countries with data for the period 1984-2008. Design/methodology/approach The empirical evidence is based on interactive GMM estimations with forward orthogonal deviations. Bilateral, multilateral and total aid dynamics are employed whereas terrorism entails: domestic, transnational, unclear and total terrorism dynamics. Findings The following findings have been established. First, while bilateral aid has no significant effect on trade, multilateral aid and total aid have positive impacts. Second total terrorism, domestic terrorism and transnational terrorism increase trade with increasing order of magnitude. Third, corresponding negative marginal effects on the interaction between foreign aid (bilateral and total) and terrorism display thresholds that are within range. Fourth, there is scant evidence of positive net effects. Overall the findings broadly indicate that foreign aid is a necessary but not a sufficient policy tool for completely dampening the effects of terrorism on trade. Originality/value There is a growing policy interest in the relationship between terrorism and international development outcomes.

  • Are manufacturing workers benefiting from trade? The case of
           Mexico’s manufacturing sector
    • First page: 25
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This paper focuses on the distributive implications of trade by studying how manufacturing worker’s relative earnings and employment have changed in post NAFTA Mexico (1995-2011). Design/methodology/approach We combine Input-Output analysis and inequality analysis to reveal the empirical relationship between trade, wage inequality and employment in the manufacturing sector in post NAFTA Mexico Findings Our results reveal that: 1) the manufacturing sectors that produce for the export market tend to pay among the lowest wages and yet employ around half of the manufacturing working population, 2) wages in labor intensive sectors have not been increasing while wage inequality has been rising, 3) employment creation due to trade is not always positive and sustained, hence does not seem to be a stable source of jobs. We conclude the paper discussing policy implications of our findings.. Originality/value The main focus of the existing literature has been to explain the disconnection between trade and growth leaving the distributive implications aside, this paper attempts to fill this gap in the literature, by studying how manufacturing worker’s relative earnings and employment have changed in post NAFTA Mexico (1995-2011).

  • Intellectual property rights, migrants and competitiveness
    • First page: 43
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This study aims to explore the moderating effect of IPR protection on the relationship between migrants and competitiveness. Design/methodology/approach This study explores how IPR protection in the sending country stimulate domestic competitiveness by creating a right environment for the migrants who want to return to their home country. Findings We find that IPR protection has a positive moderating effect on the relationship between migrants and competitiveness. And this impact decreases as the technology of the home country approaches frontier technology. Focusing on female migrants, we find that this impact exists and exhibits a U-shaped relationship over the course of economic development. Originality/value First, this is the first empirical analysis focusing on the influence of returned emigrants on competitiveness. Second, the moderating effect of IPR varies with economic development. Third, this paper focuses on female migrants and finds that there is an impact, and this impact exhibits a U-shaped relationship over the course of economic development.

  • The drivers of economic growth in China and India: globalization or
           financial development?
    • First page: 54
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose Using annual data from 1970-2013 for China and India, this study examines the impact of globalization and financial development on economic growth by endogenizing capital and inflation and drawing comparisons between the two fastest growing emerging market economies. In the long-run, co-integration test results indicate that financial development increases economic growth in China and India. The results also reveal that globalization accelerates economic growth in India but, surprisingly, impairs economic growth in China as it increases competition for exports. The results furthermore disclose that acceleration in capitalization and inflation, as a proxy for aggregate demand, are positively linked to economic growth in China and India. Causality test results indicate that both financial development and economic growth are interdependent. In contrast, causality runs from higher economic growth to increased globalization in India, while the results do not support long-term causality between globalization and economic growth in China. Design/methodology/approach In the long-run, co-integration test results indicate that financial development increases economic growth in China and India Findings The results also reveal that globalization accelerates economic growth in India but, surprisingly, impairs economic growth in China as it increases competition for exports. The results furthermore disclose that acceleration in capitalization and inflation, as a proxy for aggregate demand, are positively linked to economic growth in China and India. Originality/value Causality test results indicate that both financial development and economic growth are interdependent. In contrast, causality runs from higher economic growth to increased globalization in India, while the results do not support long-term causality between globalization and economic growth in China.

  • Does PAPI monitoring improve local governance? Evidence from a natural
           experiment in Vietnam
    • First page: 85
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This study, using the Viet Nam Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI) surveys, examines the effect of monitoring local authorities on the quality of governance and public services reported by citizens in Vietnam. Design/methodology/approach PAPI randomly selected 200 locations in 93 districts of 30 provinces to conduct its survey in 2010, and subsequently rolled out the survey nationally in 2011 and 2012. Using 2011 and 2012 survey data, we compare the quality of governance and public services reported in provinces and districts that were covered in the 2011 PAPI survey with those that were not surveyed in 2010. Theories suggest that local authorities may improve their behavior if they have been surveyed and are thus aware that they are being monitored, leading to higher quality governance. Findings In this paper, we find that governance quality reported in later years by citizens in the surveyed provinces and districts of the 2010 PAPI survey was significantly higher than quality reported by citizens in locations that were not surveyed in 2010. Monitoring appears to improve a wide range of governance aspects, including local participation in village decisions, transparency of local decision-making, accountability, administrative procedures, and public service delivery. Originality/value The main innovation of this study is to use a randomized survey on governance as a natural experiment to measure the impact of monitoring on the quality of governance and public services as reported by citizens.

  • Three years after their first social justice index: how well did LDCs
           perform?
    • First page: 107
      Abstract: International Journal of Development Issues, Volume 16, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose In this paper, we utilize a newly constructed index for social justice, with its two versions SJI-1 and SJI-2, to measure new values for the indexes in 35 countries in two periods, 2005-2010 and 2011-2015, in an attempt to assess quantitatively how LDCs developed through time in terms of social justice. Design/methodology/approach The paper obtained data for 35 developing countries in the six subindicators used to quantify the six dimensions of the social justice index. The values of the subindicators were then normalized and aggregated to form SJI-1 and SJI-2, each of which assigns different weights for its subindicators, for the 35 countries in the two periods 2005-2010 and 2011-2015. Findings Results of the new values of the index in its two versions were close in showing how 31 countries (according to SJI-1) and 29 countries (according to SJI-2) managed to improve their levels of social justice, while the indexes of only three countries (according to SJI-1) and six countries (according to SJI-2) have worsened. Nevertheless, the index depicted that some countries performed better than others by improving their ranks at the expense of others. Comparison of the study’s quantitative results with qualitative research seem to provide some support for SJI-2 in echoing social justice compared to SJI-1. Originality/value The study is a vital tool for policy makers for appraising the levels of social justice in their respective countries, both in absolute terms by highlighting the scores of their countries with respect to social justice, and in relative terms by clarifying where their countries stand through cross country comparisons, in addition to identifying dimensions of social justice which are in need of intervention for further enhancement
