  • Foreign Direct Investment in Ghana: The Role of Infrastructural
           Development and Natural Resources
    • Authors: Ebenezer Bugri Anarfo; Abel Mawuko Agoba, Robert Abebreseh
      Abstract: This paper examines the role of infrastructural development and natural resources on FDI inflows in Ghana. We examine the empirical relations using the Prais–Winsten regression estimation procedure which is meant to overcome autocorrelation and heteroscedasticity in the error terms in the model, often for regressions applied to series. The data was obtained from World Development Indicators (WDI) spanning from 1975 to 2014. Our findings suggest that infrastructural development and natural resources are drivers of FDI inflows in Ghana. The other variables that significantly influence FDI inflows in Ghana include the lending interest rate, market size and GDP growth rate. The policy implications of this study is that, while Ghana seeks to expand its infrastructure and natural resources to enhance FDI inflows and economic growth, this must be done in tandem with creating an enabling environment to ensure macroeconomic stability.

  • Elections and Subjective Living Conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa
    • Authors: Tugba Zeydanli
      Pages: 545 - 561
      Abstract: In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), competitive elections can cause considerable violence and widespread destruction of property, most of which is ethnically motivated. Recent literature shows that ethnic identification is more prominent during competitive election periods in comparison to other identifying categories such as gender, religion, and class/occupation. This paper utilizes data from 12 SSA countries and over 40,000 respondents taken from the Afrobarometer. It asks if individual perceived living conditions changes in the run-up to competitive elections. Strong evidence shows that a perceived living condition does change. It is positively related to the proximity to an election and this proximity effect depends on the competitiveness of the election. The paper further investigates the background mechanisms behind this positive relationship, that is, to what extent does living conditions of the individual change if the party that the individual supports wins the election and is there a change in living conditions of the individual before and after the election' In addition, this paper documents that ethnic identification also has a positive impact on individual perceived living conditions after controlling for electoral cycle variables.

  • Oil and the Naira: A Markov Switching Perspective
    • Authors: Idowu Oluwasayo Ayodeji
      Pages: 562 - 574
      Abstract: Using a Markov switching regression model, the study investigated the relationship between oil price shocks and exchange rates movements in an oil-exporting economy. On the strength of theoretical and empirical evidence, Nigerian naira exchange rates to US dollars were decomposed into two segmented time trends of depreciation (state 1) and appreciation (state 2). Empirical results provided evidence that exchange rate returns exhibited an asymmetric response to oil price shocks during depreciation and appreciation. We observed that, while the system is in depreciation, nominal oil prices had a positive influence on nominal USD/NGN, whereas nominal oil price shocks had no significant effect on nominal exchange rate movements during appreciation. In addition, real effective exchange rates appreciate with decreasing real oil prices but its depreciation does not depend significantly on real oil prices. Given that a decrease in nominal oil prices induces rapid naira depreciation and topples exchange rates stability, the study suggested that the government works towards a sustainable diversification of the economy to avoid continued over-dependence on oil exports. Also, to rigorously pursue a sustainable fiscal policy regime in order to boost local productions, encourage non-oil commodities exportation, and consequently increase avenues for influx of foreign exchange.

  • FDI Determinants in Least Recipient Regions: The Case of Sub-Saharan
           Africa and MENA
    • Authors: Godwin Okafor; Jenifer Piesse, Allan Webster
      Pages: 589 - 600
      Abstract: This paper explores the determinants of foreign direct investment (FDI) into FDI least recipient regions. Panel data for 20 sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and 11 Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries are used for the period 2000–12. Findings of the fixed effects estimations suggest that FDI inflows into these regions are influenced by GDP per capita, infrastructure development, trade openness, and control of corruption. Conversely, inflation negatively affects FDI inflows, and rents from natural resources do not significantly influence FDI. Furthermore, the findings show that marginal benefits from any increase in the quantity of FDI determinants (with the exception of control of corruption) will be less for SSA countries. The paper concludes with important policy implications deduced from the findings.

  • Quantifying the Road Influence Zone on Socio-economic Developments in
           Rural Tigray, Ethiopia
    • Authors: Fredu Nega Tegebu; Edris Hussein Seid
      Pages: 601 - 614
      Abstract: The road influence zone has been used to analyze the influence of roads on ecological and environmental effects but not on socio-economic conditions. In a first study of its kind, we measured the extent and type of relationship underlying the road influence zone of rural roads on socio-economic outcomes. Four indicators — namely, trip per capita, use of fertilizers, motorized transport and commercial activities — and three indicators — namely, road dust, flooding and erosion — have been used to analyze the positive and negative effects of roads respectively. Four rural roads and 529 households from four tabias were surveyed and we used piecewise and linear regressions to determine delineation of road influence zones. Except for trips per capita and erosion, threshold effects were observed for the rest of the outcome variables. The road influence zone ranges from 240 meters on both sides of the road in the case of road dust to about 2.6 kilometers in the case of motorized transport. The study results suggest that socio-economic impacts of roads differ not only on socio-economic and wealth differences of households but also on distance to road.

  • Croissance économique et dégradation de l'environnement au
    • Authors: Edmond Noubissi Domguia; Henri Njangang Ndieupa
      Pages: 615 - 629
      Abstract: Ce papier a pour objectif d'examiner les effets de la croissance économique sur les émissions de dioxyde de carbone (CO2) et sur l’évolution de la température au Cameroun sur la période 1972–2010. Le test de cointégration par les retards échelonnés ou Auto Regressive Distributed Lags (ARDL) indique l'existence d'une relation de long terme sous forme de « N inversé » entre la croissance économique et les indicateurs de dégradation environnementale (émissions de CO2 et évolution de la température) retenus dans cette étude. Ensuite, on constate que la consommation d’énergie et les activités industrielles accroissent les émissions de CO2 mais pas l’évolution des températures au Cameroun. Par contre, l'ouverture commerciale entraine une baisse du niveau de CO2 mais pas de la température. Ce résultat laisse entrevoir que le Cameroun exporte ou transmet sa pollution vers l'extérieur ou vers d'autres pays.

  • Inequity in Maternal and Child Health Care Utilization in Nigeria
    • Authors: Rifkatu Nghargbu; Olanrewaju Olaniyan
      Pages: 630 - 647
      Abstract: The study assesses the degree and patterns of horizontal inequity in maternal and child health care utilization in Nigeria. Horizontal inequity was estimated using concentration curves and a standardized concentration index, which was decomposed into need and non-need variables to capture the major drivers of inequity in utilization. Maternal and child health care utilization was measured by antenatal visits, skilled delivery and immunization utilization. Four rounds of Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data (1999, 2003, 2008, 2013) were used. The results show a positive horizontal inequity index from 1999 to 2013; which indicates that there is pro-rich inequity in utilization of antenatal, skilled delivery and immunization, respectively. The study concludes that there is higher and increasing inequity in maternal health care while inequity in utilization of child health care decreased over time with wealth status and education as the major non-need drivers of inequity in utilization. Interventions to enhance women's wealth status and education could significantly improve equity in skilled delivery and antenatal care utilization. Hence wealth creation, women empowerment and education should be given more attention to improve the deteriorating equity in maternal health care utilization.

  • Financement Bancaire des Petites et Moyennes Entreprises au Cameroun
    • Authors: André Dumas Tsambou; Christian Zamo Akono, Ludwick Ndokang Esone, Roger Tsafack Nanfosso
      Pages: 648 - 659
      Abstract: Le présent travail a pour objectif d'identifier les déterminants du financement bancaire des PME camerounaises. Il s'appuie pour cela sur l'enquête « Formulation d'un Plan de Développement Local des PME au Cameroun » réalisée auprès de 413 PME par le ministère des petites et moyennes entreprises, de l'économie sociale et de l'artisanat (MINPMEESA) du Gouvernement camerounais et l'Agence Japonaise de Coopération Internationale (JICA). Nous utilisons un modèle logit simple et les méthodes d'estimations récentes. L'analyse statistique des données révèle que les PME autofinancent leurs activités à court terme et font recours aux institutions financières à long terme. L'analyse économétrique a montré que les principaux déterminants du financement des PME sont la présence régulière des effets financiers, la qualité des garanties offertes, la taille de la PME, la rentabilité et le capital social (appartenance aux réseaux sociaux, participation des étrangers au capital, soutien des autorités gouvernementales). Cependant, les relations sociales qui sont des indicateurs du degré de confiance des PME améliorent significativement la probabilité d'accès au financement bancaire en réduisant le degré d'opacité des PME aux yeux du banquier.The present work aims to identify the determinants of financing banking Cameroonian SMEs. It is based on the survey ‘Formulation of Local Development Plan for SMEs in Cameroon’ conducted among 413 SMEs by the Ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises, Social Economy and Handicraft (MINPMEESA) Government of Cameroon and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). We use a simple logit model and robust statistical tests. The results of our analysis reveal that SMEs in the short term self-finance their business while in the long run they use financial institution funds. Moreover, analysis of the determinants of their access to external finance reveal that the main determinants of SME financing are: regular presence of financial effects, the cost of financing, quality guarantees, the SME size, its profitability, the skills of the manager and the social capital. The latter significantly improves SMEs' conditions of access to credit by reducing their degree of opacity in the eyes of bankers.

  • Semi-parametric Regression-based Decomposition Methods: Evidence from
           Regional Inequality in Tunisia
    • Authors: Amal Jmaii; Damien Rousselière, Christophe Daniel
      Pages: 660 - 673
      Abstract: This paper examines urban-rural welfare inequality in Tunisia. Founded on the recentred influence function and quantile regression based counterfactual decomposition, we dissect the gap between the two areas. Results of the present study suggest that the difference between rural poor households and urban poor households is due essentially to characteristic effects; while for wealthier households both characteristic and returns to these characteristic effects (for example, efficiency of educational system) are responsible for this gap. Additionally, the results demonstrate that this is an issue of value, and, more specifically, an economic development fairness conflict. It is suggested that policymakers should address a positive discrimination programme in favour of the marginalized region.

  • Analyse des effets de la qualité des institutions sur la volatilité des
           Investissements Directs Etrangers en Afrique
    • Authors: Bruno Emmanuel Ongo Nkoa; Jacques Simon Song
      Pages: 674 - 688
      Abstract: Cet article analyse les effets de la qualité des institutions sur la volatilité des Investissements Directs Etrangers (IDE) en Afrique. Nous utilisons un modèle estimé en données de panel par les méthodes des moments généralisés en système et des doubles moindres carrés sur la période 1996–2014. Les résultats montrent que la qualité des institutions accroit la volatilité des entrées d'IDE. L'Afrique en général et les sous-régions Afrique Centrale et Afrique Australe en particulier doivent reformer leurs institutions.This article analyzes the influence of institutional quality on the volatility of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Africa. We use an estimated model in dynamic panel data using the generalized method moment in system (GMM-S) and double least squares (2SLS) over the period 1996–2014. Results show that the quality of institutions increases the volatility of FDI inflows. In order to stabilize FDI inflows and set development prospects the African authorities must reform their institutions.
