  • International oil prices and consumer prices in Pakistan: is the
           relationship symmetric?
    • Authors: Syed Tehseen Jawaid, Mohammad Haris Siddiqui, Muhammad Shahbaz
      Pages: 389 - 409
      Abstract: This study empirically examines the effect of international oil prices on aggregated and disaggregated consumer prices in Pakistan by employing annual time series data for the period of 1981-2011. Cointegration results confirm the existence of the positive long run relationship between international oil prices and consumer prices in Pakistan in all models except clothing and footwear and medical care and health. Furthermore, the error correction model unveils no immediate or short-run relation between oil prices and consumer prices. Similarly, our empirical evidence also reveals asymmetric relationship between international oil prices and consumer prices. Results indicate that the positive shock in international oil price has a significant positive effect in all models. On the other hand, negative shock in oil price has insignificant effect. It is suggested that prevention of cartel, implementation of antitrust law and reduction in borrowing constraints could be used to tackle the problem of asymmetric behaviour.

  • Institutional and macroeconomic determinants of financial development in
           the OIC countries
    • Authors: Abdulsalam Abubakar, Salina Kassim
      Pages: 410 - 424
      Abstract: The role of financial development to the growth process is recognised in the literature and policy cycles, therefore, what determines it is also worthy of attention. This study investigates the institutional and macroeconomic determinants of financial development in 50 OIC member countries from 2003 to 2011. Dynamic panel approach-system-GMM is employed. The results revealed that overall level of income positively influences financial development, and exchange rate encourages financial depth and lending activities. Financial openness is found to promote financial depth only, while institutional quality promotes lending activities. On the other hand, inflation stimulates bank private credit and reduces the depth of the financial sector. This mixed results implied that, policy makers in the OIC countries, shall adopt a hybrid of economic and financial policies as well as implement political, legal and governance reforms in order to enhance financial development and hence promote economic growth.

  • Drivers of R&D internationalisation - evidence from US firm investments in
           developing economies
    • Authors: Wei He, Tantatape Brahmasrene
      Pages: 425 - 452
      Abstract: In today's global competitive environment, multinational corporations (MNCs) continue to internationalise their research and development (R&D) activities by progressively locating their innovatory capacity in developing nations. Hence, a panel study is developed to examine the effects of multiple factors that motivate US R&D investment in developing nations based on the analysis of longitudinal data collected from a variety of governmental, academic and public sources. The empirical results indicate that MNCs locate their foreign R&D activities in developing nations in order to exploit the available resource endowment. Furthermore, targeting the emerging markets does not appear to be a strong motivator that drives MNCs' foreign R&D investment. Instead, developing nations that have advanced telecommunication infrastructure, low labour costs and technology specialisation capabilities attract more foreign R&D investment. The paper concludes by identifying a range of issues, managerial and policy implications.

  • The impact of research and development on total factor productivity in
           South Africa: an application of autoregressive distributed lag model
           approach
    • Authors: Tshepo Sekaiwa, Andrew Maredza
      Pages: 453 - 484
      Abstract: This study analyses the impact of research and development (R&D) on total factor productivity (TFP) in South Africa from 1970 to 2013. The study tests the Schumpeterian theory of growth which suggests that TFP growth results from interalia R&D. The study uses autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) procedure to study TFP impact of R&D investment in South Africa. To take into account the changing structure of South African economy, the entire sample (1970-2013) and two sub-samples: 1970-1994 and 1990-2013 capturing resource-based and knowledge-based South Africa respectively are estimated. The ARDL test results revealed that cointegration exists between TFP and R&D for all the samples; implying that domestic and foreign R&D played a positive role on TFP growth of South Africa. Based on the results, the South African policy makers are encouraged to use policy instruments to improve R&D investment, particularly domestic R&D to achieve higher TFP growth.

  • Violations of put-call parity for CNX Nifty index options: a study at
           National Stock Exchange
    • Authors: Tanuj Nandan, Puja Agrawal
      Pages: 485 - 502
      Abstract: Derivatives markets provide a platform for market participants to hedge their risk, and aid price discovery. Correct pricing of derivatives instruments is imperative in the performance of these functions. In the present study, an attempt has been made to examine the valuation of CNX Nifty index options in terms of put-call parity (PCP) relationship, over a ten-year period. Since PCP is a no-arbitrage-based argument, it does not suffer from the limitations that are inevitable while gauging pricing efficiency using model-based approaches. Various error estimates, supported by non-parametric tests have been used validate our results statistically. Our findings indicate frequent violations of PCP, though the magnitude of mispricing is small. Further, the results are charted across moneyness, days-to-expiry and liquidity. The present study can be extremely important for all stakeholders, as violation of PCP leads to risk-free profitable arbitrage, which is an antithesis to efficient markets.

      Abstract: This article takes an approach to explaining the behavioural manifestations of the decision making in US companies' offer of health insurance that is grounded not only on their cost minimising behaviour, but also in a humanness dimension based on the African concept of Ubuntu, and the Random Utility framework. The choice process is modelled as a tripartite decision making, using a nationally representative random sample of 1,061 US companies from the Dunn and Bradstreet Business data. The results show that the relationship between management culture and health plan offering strategy is dependent on other relevant covariates, which when left out, leads to the problem of omitted variables bias. However, when all variables are included exogenously in this relationship, it results in management culture not affecting significantly companies' scope of plan offering. When the exogeneity assumption is relaxed through recursively Bivariate Probit modelling, a highly significant management culture effect is observed, as companies with groups and formal committee management culture are seen to be 1.58 times less likely to choose a multiple plan strategy over a single plan strategy.
