  • A Comparative Study of Private Security Regulations of Mongolia, Belgium
           and the United Kingdom

    • Authors: Galbat Lkhagvamaa, Julak Lee
      Pages: 36 - 41
      Abstract: Regulation of the private security industry in Mongolia is relatively recent with the first specific legislation dating back to 2000. In 2000, the State Great Hural(Parliament of Mongolia) passed the Law on Contracted Private Security Service and has been revised twice, by which ‘modern’ private security was legally born. The aim of this study is to compare and evaluate the regulation of private security in the Mongolia, Belgium and the United Kingdom. In particular, this study illustrates the differences which exist in the level of regulation governing the operation of the industry in these countries in four areas such as areas covered private security companies, entrance requirement for companies, restriction on the background of owner/management, restriction on the background of employee, training/education. The comparative study of the three countries shows an imperative need to make further amendments to the Law on Contracted Private Security Service. According to the findings, this study proposes the direction for constructive amendments to strengthen the Law on Contracted Private Security Service.

  • The Cointegration Analysis of the Long-term Bond Rates in Japan under the
           Zero Lower Bound Problems

    • Authors: Shohei Ishibashi
      Pages: 42 - 56
      Abstract: In April of 2013, Bank of Japan introduced Qualitative and Quantitative Easing (QQE). And the unexpected announcement of additional QQE in October of 2014 surprised many market participants. Just after both announcements stock prices of Japanese market rose rapidly. BOJ had introduced non-traditional monetary policies not only QQE, but Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) and Quantitative Easing (QE) for about 15 years. Not only Japan but U.S. Federal Reserve, Bank of England of U.K. (BOE) and Sveriges Riksbank of Sweden have also introduced QE. Especially, Federal Reserve Board of U.S. had executed the non-traditional monetary policies of QE1, QE2 and QE3 since November of 2008 till October of 2014 by the chairmen, Bernanke and Yellen. It continues another non-traditional monetary policy, ZIRP under the slowly recovering economy. Meanwhile ECB announced their introduction of QE on January 22 of 2015 and began buying government bonds on March 9, when Europe’s fragile recovery is lagging the rest of the world and a drop in prices is threatening to make things worse. However none of them had not brought adequate result by the non-traditional monetary policies yet. In this thesis we analyze the relationship between Japanese long-term interest rates and its non-traditional monetary policies under persistent and serious deflation. We investigate the extent to which change rates of monetary base and amounts of loan outstanding of banks and other proxy variables affect both the nominal and real interest rates of 10 year JGBs. We used a fundamental bond rate model based on Sargent (1969) and test the cointegrating relationship among the variables. Then we estimate the model with cointegrating relationship by Dynamic OLS and Error Correction model by GMM.

  • Tax Incentives and the Flow of Foreign Direct Investment to Non-Oil
           Sector: Empirical

    • Authors: Joseph Amuka, Fidelis Ezeudeka
      Pages: 57 - 64
      Abstract: Foreign Direct Investment has become an important source of bridging the gap between domestic savings and domestic investments in developing countries in the past three decades. In order to increase the flow of foreign direct investment, Nigeria like many other developing countries reformed her tax system in late 1990s to create incentives for the flow of foreign direct investment into the country. She reviewed company income tax downward from 50% in 1980s to 30% in 1999. Similarly, investment allowance was reviewed upward from 25% in 1980s to 95% in 1999. This study investigated whether the incentive policy has brought any significant change in the pattern of flow of foreign direct investment to the non-oil sector. The study adopted a multiple regression model which was transformed into log-log model in the analysis. Regime switch model helped us to evaluate the effectiveness of the policy introduced in late 1999. Both company income tax and investment allowance appeared with the right sign. Result suggests that the tax incentive policy introduced changed the flow of foreign investment to the non-oil sector, showing that the country’s tax incentives can help revive the ailing non-oil sector.

  • Use of Mental Health Services in Primary Health Care Delivery Systems in a
           Developing Country: A Survey of Selected General Hospitals in Delta State
           Nigeria

    • Authors: Bryan Oweilayefa Gere
      Pages: 65 - 69
      Abstract: Studies on the use of mental health services in Nigeria are scarce.  Most of the existing studies have focused on psychiatric illnesses. However the context for the assessment and treatment of many mental health disorders in developing countries including Nigeria is moving from mental hospitals to primary health care providers (PHC). This present study was conducted in Delta State Nigeria to assess the use and provision of mental health services in PHCs (General Hospitals). Two sets of questionnaires were used for the study; one set was given to health practitioners (15), while the other was given to 50 community respondents who were patients in these facilities.  The results show that there is low utilization of mental health services in PHCs. In addition, patients do not have a positive attitude towards the use of formal mental health services and also lack an awareness of the availability of these services in PHC settings.

  • The Impact of the New Accounting Reporting Among Listed Firms in Nigerian
           Stock Market

    • Authors: Musa Yelwa Abubakar, Nasiru Abdulsallam, Muhammad Yusuf Alkali
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: The study discusses the relationship between accounting disclosures and market value under new accounting reporting. The study addresses whether accounting information has improved after the IFRS adoption among Nigerian listed firms. The study adopted Ohlson (1995) stock price model that has commonly been used in the capital market for a 5-year data of 129 companies listed in the Nigerian stock market. The Findings of the study have shown disaggregated assets and liabilities have a strong relationship with stock price. However, there is higher association after the adoption of IFRS from the adjusted R2. Furthermore, current assets presented more explanatory power than all other variables in the model, signifying that investors rely on current assets for decision making. However, Cramer (1987) Z statistics provided no significance difference in value relevance between the two periods. A possible explanation of the changes could be that investors do not view accounting information to be different in the two periods. Therefore, policy makers, standard setters, and regulators need to come together to address the issue of IFRS adoption by firms in Nigeria.

  • An Analysis of Various Types of Supply Chain Management Systems: Case of
           Global Public Sector versus Private Sector Procurement

    • Authors: Sakhile Manyathi
      Pages: 10 - 19
      Abstract: Public institutions are subject to huge range of legislative restrictions, controlled by the legislative, executive and judicial authorities and subject to criticism by the public at large as compared to private sector procurement processes which are led by profit motives (Fourie, 2009). In both public and private sector procurement, the goods, services and or works have to be acquired, which is the most similarity between these two sectors. In the final analysis, Oughton (2007) alluded to the fact that, it is how well these concepts work that truly determine their worth; it is clear that public and private sector supply chains truly are "two sides of the same coin" and that many private sector best practices can be used in the public sector with great success and with little or no modification; thereby fostering the much needed partnership between these two sectors. A general concern among public sector procurement processes is a low level of trust to the suppliers in that the best price offer ultimately is selected or given high weight like in the South African 80/20 and 90/10 preferential point system, however there is a contrast, in that the private sector often considers performance equally or even more important than price so the 80/20 and 90/10 principle wouldn’t work in private sector procurement. Private sector procurement managers are said to be more interested in the quality of performance than costs; therefore the public sector procurement officials can learn more of these good practices from the private sector.

  • The Impact of Packaging Designs on Consumer Buying Behaviour of FMCG
           during the Hyperinflationary and After the Dollarisation Era in Zimbabwe

    • Authors: Godwell Karedza, Mike Sikwila
      Pages: 20 - 30
      Abstract: Purpose – The main thrust of this research paper is to investigate the effect of designs that come with a package and how they influence consumer purchasing habit of FMCG products in Zimbabwe during and after the multi-currency period. The objectives of the research was to ascertain the major effect of packaging designs on consumer purchasing pattern of FMCG goods in Zimbabwe, to establish the major function of packaging on FMCG products and to examine the salient effect of other factors that can be controlled  and that cannot be controlled (such as price, quality, promotion, socio cultural environment, social class, personality and self concept, attitudes and learning) on the purchasing pattern of consumer on FMCG goods during and after the multi-currency period in Zimbabwe. Design/ methodology/ approach –The researcher adopted the descriptive survey and exploratory research designs to gather data from the retail sector.  The research was conducted in Harare Zimbabwe where most of the retail outlets are mainly concentrated. A study sample of 47 respondents from the retail sector was used targeting firms in the FMCG sector. Data to answer research problem was obtained through an in-depth interviews and questionnaires. 5 policy makers were interviewed while 42 questionnaires were sent to retail managers and of which 32 were then returned. The target samples were guided with a questionnaire with closed and open ended questions. Respondents were Stratified and conveniently selected. Findings – The findings revealed that, the element with the most influential factor on purchasing habit of FMCG products is printed information as indicated by more respondents. Thus the correct message will sell a product hence designers and product strategists must think first on all messages they are sending to consumers. Printed information has more bearing on the buying pattern of consumers, followed by size. Background image, colour and font styles were also pointed out as having an effect on the buying behaviour of FMCG products. Font styles however have the least effect the purchasing behaviour of consumers. This corresponds with Deliya and Parmar (2012)study which concluded that font style has the least effect as compared to all the packaging elements. It should be concluded that size and material are the visual elements mainly considered by customers when buying products while product information is also the main verbal elements having an effect on consumer decision making. Conclusively packaging elements are perceived to be an element of the product. The research also revealed that, during and after the multi-currency period, consumers in Zimbabwe preferred to purchase more of foreign packaged products than local packed products.

  • The Need for Involving Parents in the Rehabilitation of Persons with
           Special Needs in Nigeria

    • Authors: Juliana Rotkangmwa Bodang, Rachael Asibi Amwe
      Pages: 31 - 35
      Abstract: The age long global trend of institutionalizing special needs persons/children for their rehabilitation is now being deemphasized in both the developed and the developing worlds. Emphasis  is now shifted on the need for family and community involvement in the care and rehabilitation of children with disabilities. Thus, advocacy on the promotion of their well-being is now focused on community-based rehabilitation which many scholars consider as down to earth and more natural since the target population reside in their domain. Further, it entails the utilization of locally available resources to train special needs children/persons amongst varied communities. It is  in this dimension that this paper discusses crucial issues such as what constitutes special children, their nature, needs as well as what constitutes specially in such children. In the same vein, the plight  of the children in question has been highlighted bearing in mind socio-cultural practices, beliefs and attitudinal dispositions of the general populace as they pertain to parents/guardians of children with disabilities. Having clearly, highlighted the plight of special children in the Nigerian context, strategies to enhance their well-being as related to education, social as well as their economic aspect of life were also dwelt upon.
