  • The impact of Public Expenditure on Economic Growth of Kosovo

    • Authors: Driton Balaj, Lirim Lani
      Abstract: The aim of the paper is to identify the impact of public expenditure on economic growth of Kosovo over the period 2000-2016. The structure of the econometric model is built by two economic theories, Wagner and Keynesian, where these two economic concepts support the results of the paper, that public expenditure and economic growth have a positive relation, but public expenditure does not have a direct impact on economic growth, but can have a stimulate effect on the economic growth process. The results of the econometric model showed that none of the public expenditure categories in Kosovo had any impact on economic growth of Kosovo over the period 2000-2016. The general conclusion is that public expenditure in Kosovo has been characterized by an unproductive public expedition, for the period 2000-2016, the effect of public expenditure on economic growth has not had the necessary and reasonable impact on achieving the economic target in Kosovo. The findings of the paper can be used by Kosovo's own government to orient the fiscal policies in Kosovo. The study seeks to contribute to the provision of an effective public expenditure structure in Kosovo, with particular emphasis on the best categorization of their impact on Kosovo's economic growth.

  • Europe 2020 Strategy vs Global Environment Protection’s Challenge

    • Authors: Romeo Victor Ionescu, Luminita Maria Filip
      Abstract: The paper deals with the analysis of the latest events related to the environment protection and clean energy. This analysis is built on two levels. The first one is the analysis of the Europe 2020 Strategy regarding the environment and energy across the EU and points out the great disparities between the Member States. The second level is focus on the environment and energy consumption in Romania. It is followed by forecasting procedures related to the greenhouse gas emissions, the renewable energy in gross final energy consumption, the primary energy consumption and the final energy consumption. The main conclusion of the paper is that EU has to face to great challenges in this domain and the Strategy’s goals achieving in 2020 is not sure. On the other hand, Romania has good performance for two from the four above specific indicators. The analysis is based on long term statistical data, pertinent diagrams and is supported by IBM-SPSS software.

  • Towards an Integrated Management and Planning in the Romanian Black Sea
           Coastal Zones

    • Authors: Catalin Anton, Gasparotti Carmen, Alina Raileanu, Eugen Rusu
      Abstract: The socio-economic and 'natural' systems are, to a variable extent, now locked in a co-evolutionary path, characterized by a joint determinism and complex feedback effects. The management of the coastal zones, including also modeling and assessment measures, should, be reoriented over time to properly capture the causes and consequences of the joint system changes as manifested in the coastal areas. This will require a collaborative work among a range of economical, environmental and social science disciplines. The pressures and the high instability are similar between the coast and the sea, in both senses (from the land to the sea and also from the sea to the land), being given by various factors as the strong winds, waves, storms, open sea, currents, as well well also the variability of temperatures, salinity, density, due to the Danube impact, etc. The influence of the rivers discharging into the Black Sea is important, while the coastal erosion, flooding, urbanization, tourism, naval industry have an impact on the coast and the sea environment. The Marine Spatial Planning Directive is appropriate in Romania to put in practice the similar tools, and practical approach from the coast to the maritime space.   This paper aims to represent an useful starting point in the management of the coastal zones for both natural and social science research that would be seeked (by a more integrated modelling and assessment process) to better describe and understand the functioning of the ecosystems, that form the coastal interface, and in particular the filter effect is exerted on nutrients in response to the environmental pressures, both anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic - the climate change, land use/cover change, urbanization and effluent treatment from both point and non-point sources. For this it is necessary a broad analytical framework (rather than a specific model) in which to set a more detailed analysis.

  • Entrepreneurial Intention: South African Youth’s willingness to
           start Tourism Business

    • Authors: Ikechukwu Onyekwere Ezeuduji, Sibusiso D. Ntshangase
      Abstract: Previous studies have recognised entrepreneurship as a tool capable of driving a nation’s economy. Objectives – This study explored tourism entrepreneurial intention of South African youth, and analysed relationships between entrepreneurship statements on the one hand, and entrepreneurial intention and entrepreneurial impact on the other hand. Approach – A questionnaire survey was used to collect data from simple-randomly selected 220 youth living in Mtubatuba Local Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa. Descriptive, bivariate and multivariate data analyses yield information to address research objectives. Results – Significant proportion of the youth have entrepreneurial intention, these youth want to solve problems, are willing to pursuing their dreams, have internal locus of control, have positive outlook, have the ability to identify opportunities, and above all have strong sense of empathy. Implication - South African Department of Labour needs to develop an operational plan to provide business education, entrepreneurial skills, and relevant support that can empower the youth to start their own businesses. Value – This study validates the alignment of entrepreneurship roles to those of making a difference, innovation, leadership and self-belief, and shares a positive outlook for the South African economy if the enabling political and economic conditions are created.

  • Empirical Assessment of Social Motivation and Performance of Informal
           Entrepreneurs in Computer Village, Lagos state.

    • Authors: Adebanji William Adebanji, Oluwole Iyiola, Olaleke Oluseye Ogunnaike, Stephen Ayodotun Ibidunni, Oluwaseun Akinde, Idowu Olubodun
      Abstract: ABSTRACTThe current upsurge of unemployment in Nigeria can be downplayed by entrepreneurship, an economic driver which reflects negatively on the adopted mono-economy of Nigeria with her dependence on oil rather than attaining a multi-diversification in all sectors. The informal entrepreneurship has proved its stance positively in kerbing the unemployment issues in all sector and yet there seems to be an aggressive action taken towards its sustainability by the government and in this study, Nigeria. The study focuses on the need to understand the level of social drive in relationship to the performance attained by the informal entrepreneurs. In this regards, the propelling force to why the informal entrepreneur with governmental regulation have a positive performance and this was conducted in Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos. The explorative and causal research was adopted for the study. Survey research was considered appropriate for the study. 250 copies of the questionnaire were distributed and 205 were returned depicting 82%. The analysis was done using the SPSS package and the hypothesis tested suggested that there is a significant relationship between social motivators and business competitiveness in the informal electronic market at 5 percent significant level, thereby accepting the alternate hypothesis. This study recommends that the place of family support has been noted to highly affect the motivation of the business and to this end, the basic support gotten from the government should be redesigned (i.e. schools, health), such that the remaining income will be used for expansion or transition while performance is primed.

  • The role of internal audit in risk management– Evidence from private
           sector of Kosovo

    • Authors: Hysen Ismajli, Mimoza Guda Ferati, Agon Ferati
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the role of internal audit function in risk management and challenges that have an effect on this function in the case of private companies of Kosovo.
      The method chosen for the research is based on structured questionnaire survey sent to all head of internal audit of 21 biggest large private companies in Kosovo and interviews held with some of them. Based on responses received, the results show us that the role of internal auditors in the risk management is very important, but first there are many activities within the organization which must be improved. The analysis results show that internal auditors understand the concept of risk management and know that they role is very important within company, however they know that restricted access, non competent staff, un sufficient funds and non interest of management to increase the effect of the internal audit, are issues that hinder performance of internal audit in risk management. As the role of internal audit function in the private sector in Kosovo, has been very rarely empirically examined, this study attempts to contribute to future studies that relate to a very important issue such as risk management.

      Abstract: : The sometimes, selective exclusion by the legislation and the financial houses of the host country, force immigrants of African origin to setup stokvels to sustain their businesses and livelihood in South Africa. Aim: To provide the basis for inclusive policy initiatives, this paper investigated the drivers for the formation of business support stokvels by Cameroonians in South Africa. Method: The paper adopted a mix research paradigm with the survey questionnaire and personal interviews as the tools of choice. The purposive sampling technique was implored to reach the 132 respondents. Results: It was apparent that the participants form stokvels to compensate for the lack of access to finance from formal financial intermediaries. The dire need for startup and later expansion capital drove them to form stokvels and even to belong to multiple stokvels as they strive to improve their chances. Beyond this, stokvels provide the platform for the mobilization of savings and the opportunity to run their own bank on their own terms. Implications: while aligned to the Cameroonian community, other minority groups can draw vital lessons. Beyond this, the paper informs the inclusive finance debate and may therefore be relevant to policy makers and academics.

  • Unemployment and Economic Growth in Nigeria in the 21st Century: VAR

    • Authors: Olawunmi Omitogun, Adedayo Emmanuel Longe
      Abstract: This study investigates the impact of unemployment on economic growth in Nigeria in the 21st century using a Vector Autoregressive (VAR) approach from 1986-2015. It aimed at examining the dynamic effect of unemployment on growth in the context of Nigeria using the VAR to analyse the variations. Different methods such as the Augmented Dickey Fuller (ADF) test, johansen cointegration test, VAR model, impulse response test and variance decomposition test were employed to analyse the data. It was observed that the impact of unemployment vary over time as effort towards eradicating it are been made by the government in the country. The implications of the study are that, it informs researchers on VAR model as an appropriate approach for dynamic analysis, academicians to be more informative on the dynamic effects of unemployment in the economy, and the government on the appropriate policy to adopt to tackle the issue of unemployment and inflation in the country. The study therefore recommends that there should be an increase in government expenditure towards enhancing the skills of individuals to reduce unemployment and inflation.

  • Financial Inclusion and Per Capita Income In Africa: Bayesian VAR

    • Authors: Raymond Osi Alenoghena
      Abstract: Do higher per capita incomes translate into higher financial inclusion in Africa'  Our application of the Bayesian VAR estimation approach to the World Bank Development Indicators datasets for 15 African countries provides affirmative evidence to this question. Using a Bayesian VAR approach for a panel of 15 countries in Africa over the period from 2005 to 2014, the findings show that per capital incomes, deposit interest rate and the internet has positive and significant impact on financial inclusion. That is, higher per capital incomes is associated with higher levels of financial inclusion in Africa. It is, however, interesting to note that financial inclusion is having a positive but insignificant impact on per capita income. Moreover, the internet is coming out to be a significant variable indicating that more attention is required to be paid to developing internet access in Africa for the advancement of financial inclusion. The findings of this study should be of help to African central banks’ policymakers and commercial bankers as they advance innovative approaches to enhance the involvement of excluded poor people in formal finance.

  • Operational Diversification and Financial Performance of Sub-Saharan
           Africa Commercial Banks: Static and Dynamic Approach.

    • Authors: Odunayo Magret Olarewaju, Stephen Oseko Migiro, Mabutho Sibanda
      Abstract: Diversification is a key area in financial institution since their activities have gone beyond the traditional intermediary role. It is in this view that the study examines the effect of operational diversification on bank performance using the pooled, fixed, random and System GMM for the period 2006 to 2015 across 250 commercial banks from 30 countries in the region. Due to the robustness of SYS-GMM, the findings of this study reveal that using Herfindahl Hirschman index, all the dimensions of operational diversification; asset, liability, deposit and income including control variables such as bank size, liquidity, loan loss ratio, cost to income ratio and the lagged return on average asset (ROAA (L1)) are significant at 1% level with only deposit diversification (HHIde), liquidity (LOD) and cost to income ratio (CIR) which is a measure of banks’ efficiency having negative relationship with ROAA. Therefore, this study concludes that diversification of operational activities in SSA commercial banks have direct and significant effect on their financial performances. But, greater attention should be taken to monitor the diversification strategy so as to ensure that no dimension of banks’ activities is neglected.

  • The Relationship between Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy Consumption and
           Economic growth in G7 countries: Evidence from Bootstrap Panel Causality

    • Authors: Uğur Korkut Pata, Harun Terzi
      Abstract: In this study, both renewable and nonrenewable energy consumption and economic growth relations were examined by the bootstrap panel Granger causality method covering the period 1996-2014 for G7 countries. The findings show a unidirectional causality moving from renewable energy consumption to economic growth in Germany and Japan, and a bidirectional causality between these two variables in France, Italy and the United Kingdom. Regarding nonrenewable energy consumption, unidirectional causality moving from nonrenewable energy consumption to economic growth in Canada and the United States, and the causality in the opposite direction is valid in the United Kingdom and Germany. Also in Japan, there is a bidirectional causality relationship between these two variables. As a result, energy consumption is an important factor for G7 countries' economic growth.
