  • Examining the mediating effect of subjective vitality in the proactive
           personality and life satisfaction relationship
    • Authors: Xinhao Wu, Xiaoxia Yang, Xiao Li, Xiaoman Li, Fengxia Han, Xuejun Pan
      Pages: 289 - 302
      Abstract: The present research examines whether the relationship between proactive personality and life satisfaction is mediated by subjective vitality. This study surveyed 337 university students. The subjective vitality scale, satisfaction with life scale and revised proactivity scale were used to collect research data. The mediating effect of subjective vitality was tested with regression-based mediation analysis. The findings of the study demonstrate that the relationship between proactive personality and life satisfaction is mediated by subjective vitality in university students. Limitations of this research and the importance of the findings are discussed.

  • Not all that glitters is gold: ICT and inclusive human development in
           Sub-Saharan Africa
    • Authors: Simplice A. Asongu, Jacinta C. Nwachukwu
      Pages: 303 - 322
      Abstract: This paper examines the short- and long-term effects of information and communication technology (ICT) on inclusive human development in a panel of 49 Sub-Saharan African countries for the period 2000-2012. ICT is measured in terms of mobile phone penetration, internet penetration and telephone penetration rates. While mobile phone penetration has positive short run and long-term effects on inclusive human development, the effects of internet and telephone penetrations are insignificant. Moreover, the long-term inclusive human development benefits of the mobile phone are higher than the corresponding short-term rewards. Policy implications are discussed.

  • Happiness and domain satisfaction in Turkey
    • Authors: Onur Köksal, Harun Uçak, Faruk Åžahin
      Pages: 323 - 341
      Abstract: Literature on the economics of happiness usually indicates that happiness depends on actual life circumstances (income, health, marital status and cetera). In contrast, a psychological view of happiness suggests that subjective satisfaction with actual life domains comes together to predict happiness. Little is known about the relation of happiness to the different life domains in developing countries. The present study explores the factors that shape individual happiness at a micro-level in Turkey, in terms of satisfaction with several life domains. Using the 2008-2012 Turkish life satisfaction survey (n = 36.362) this study adds to existing literature on happiness in developing countries in its focus on Turkey. The data reveal that among the satisfaction-related predictor variables, satisfaction with income, marriage, and health were the top three predictors of happiness in all years. Implications and suggestions for future studies are discussed.

  • Poverty, happiness, and risk preferences in rural Ethiopia
    • Authors: Onur Köksal, Harun Uçak, Faruk Åžahin
      Pages: 342 - 367
      Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between risk preferences and self-reported assessments of happiness in life for a sample of peasants from 15 different sites in rural Ethiopia. The relationships were estimated using ordered probit models and the results show that happier subjects were more likely to choose risky alternatives in both real and hypothetical experimental games. The correlation between happiness and willingness to take risk remains positive even when endogeneity of happiness is accounted for using the instrumental variables' estimation technique. The empirical results seem to be consistent with the hypothesis that innate optimism and the resulting overestimation of the probabilities of favourable outcomes by the subjects is the dominant force driving the correlation between happiness and risk preferences. This implies that creating an environment where optimism can flourish may not only help improve social wellbeing but may also encourage entrepreneurial endeavours.

  • Resilience of Buddhist sexual minorities related to sexual orientation and
           gender identity
    • Authors: Onur Köksal, Harun Uçak, Faruk Åžahin
      Pages: 368 - 383
      Abstract: Many individuals with non-heterosexual orientation or gender non-conformity are afflicted by prejudice, discrimination and isolation. This issue has been discussed in the religious field; however, little research has explored it from a Buddhist perspective. This qualitative inquiry investigates the coping strategies of Buddhist sexual minorities, including American, British, Chinese and Malay LGBTs, to overcome adversity in a heterosexual-dominated context. It uses semi-structured interviews to collect data that are analysed by interpretative phenomenological analysis, with the aid of a computer-assisted qualitative data analysis package. Member-checking is utilised to enhance academic trustworthiness. The participants address the importance of self-acceptance (part of self-compassion) through their narratives, together with support resources, when they attain a better understanding of the nature of suffering, impermanence, karma and mindfulness. It also unveils the importance of support from religious leaders, peers and family. These significantly help them strengthen their resilience and improve mental health, resulting in well-being.
