  • Corruption in Mexico and Central America

    • Abstract: This paper investigates the determinants of corruption and the effects of certain variables on corruption. The variables that have marked incidence of corruption are, among others, increases in imports, in the shadow economy, self-employment, the interest rate, and the trade deficit, while corruption has a negative incidence on economic growth, exports, wage employment, and productivity, and others. Using principal component analysis new indicators of corruption and anti-corruption were developed, which were validated by comparing them with the World Bank’s control of corruption index. The paper presents the main elements of a regional strategy to combat corruption and ends with a series of conclusions.

  • Improvement in Inflation Forecasting: Ensembling Text Mining with Macro
           Data in Machine Learning Models

    • Abstract: We forecast inflation using a large news corpus and machine learning methods. Over 3.9 million daily newspaper headlines from January 2001 to June, 2023 are decomposed into monthly time series and integrated with machine learning models to predict inflation. The addition of Text mining in models outperformed the numerical predictions based on the machine learning models without text mining as published by the authors earlier in Das and Das (2024). In addition, the variable importance while analyzing the predictors provides further insights into new variables came out from text mining for which structured data was not available earlier. A dictionary of words sentimental to inflation forecasting has been prepared possibly for the first time. The forecasting model that used text words sentimental to inflation as additional inputs in artificial neural network performed better than all the other models in terms of forecast accuracy. Overall, we provide a novel representation of improvements in adding text mining in machine learning models in inflation forecasting.

  • The Impact of the Active School Search Campaign on Preschool Enrollment
           Rates in Brazilian Municipalities

    • Abstract: Brazil has yet to achieve universal access to preschool education, a goal initially scheduled for accomplishment by 2016 according to the National Education Plan. This article aims to present the results, in terms of preschool enrollment rates, of an evaluation assessing the effectiveness of the Active School Search Campaign, developed by the United Nations Children’s Fund and the National Union of Municipal Directors of Education, a campaign to support the municipalities in proactively searching for children who are out of school or at risk of dropping out. The empirical identification strategy consisted of employing the differences-in-differences method combined with propensity score matching. The results indicate that the impact was not statistically significant in any of the exercises performed. This evidence reinforces that policies to combat school exclusion require an intersectoral approach.

  • Dynamic of Brazilian Foreign Trade by Technological Intensity

    • Abstract: This paper aims to investigate the long-run relationship between the real exchange rate and the Brazilian trade balance disaggregated by technological intensity classification, i.e., High Tech, Medium-High Tech, Medium Low Tech, and Low Tech, using monthly data from the period of January 2000 to December 2022. To achieve this aim, time-varying cointegration methodology is used, as it is understood that a linear approach is not well suited for developing economies, that face much influence from external events and internal turmoils, which is just the case of Brazil. It was found that, from the 4 sectors, only the low-tech sector has the usually expected signals, that is, a benefit from exchange depreciation, but even for this industry, this positive effect has been diminishing since 2009, due to structural changes in the Brazilian agricultural sector, which accounts for much of the added value in the low-tech goods. The dynamic real exchange rate elasticities for the medium-high and medium-low tech industries oscilated much throughout the time frame of the study, revealing the great influence of external and internal shocks in the change of the trajectory of these elasticities. The high-tech sector presented opposite signals in the estimated elasticities, revealing that exchange rate appreciations benefit it, probably due to its dependency on imported inputs.

  • Prospects of Post-Conflict Foreign Direct Investments in Ukraine Through
           the Lens of Dunning’s Eclectic Paradigm

    • Abstract: This research aims to highlight post-conflict prospects for Ukraine in the domain of FDIs by taking the OLI framework of Dunning. This research explores the role of the FDI as the most important economic pillar for economic consolidation in a globalized world. The case studies of war-torn countries and the role of the FDIs in their post-war recovery have been evaluated. It has been analyzed that through fundamental economic reforms and restricting to win the investors’ confidence, Ukraine can strategize its ownership, location, and internalization advantage as the country possesses relatively higher significance for global food security, logistics, and international trade. Most importantly prospects are higher for international investors to invest their capital in one of the largest European markets in banking. The NATO membership and EU membership will be the most significant driver of the FDIs for Ukraine.

  • Inequality and the Equalization Fund in Brazil: Redefining Strategies

    • Abstract: This article examines Brazilian states’ per capita income convergence from 1990 to 2020. A reduction in state inequalities was observed, attributed to the redistribution of resources through the State Participation Fund (FPE) and Constitutional Funds and the Municipal Participation Fund and transfers for health and education, benefiting federative entities with lower per capita incomes. However, a significant volume of resources aimed at income redistribution was characterized by overlapping actions, whose results were not evaluated in isolation. Moreover, while historically, less economically advantaged states strive to reach the national average, more economically advantaged states tend to maintain or enhance their relative positions. Barro’s analysis (2001) suggests that equalization funds, by benefiting entities with lower GDP per capita, discourage governors from promoting the state’s economic development, as this would imply a loss of FPE resources. This situation would be a government failure commonly pointed out by authors of the Public Choice School. In light of this, this study proposes a revision of the FPE distribution criteria, reducing the emphasis on the inverse of per capita income and including variables such as population, collection effort, and state size, aiming to promote a more effective and equitable convergence of per capita income in the Brazilian federation.

  • Research on Asset Inheritance of High Net Worth Family Trust in Recent
           Years

    • Abstract: In recent years, with the rapid development of social economy and the acceleration of wealth accumulation, family trust has gradually attracted widespread attention and application as an asset inheritance tool. As a special wealth management tool, family trust aims to help families maintain wealth and achieve long-term wealth inheritance goals. In the research of predecessors, it mainly expounds the unique advantages of family trust on the basis of the huge demand for wealth inheritance in the Chinese market. The obstacles encountered by family trust in China’s localisation and the innovation model proposed in response to the obstacles. In these studies, a series of problems arising from different policies and stages of development of the country have been ignored. With the economic development, the market demand for China’s wealth inheritance continues to expand, and the Chinese government and related institutions are also gradually reforming. On this basis, this article uses the literature analysis method to understand the new policies proposed in family trusts in China and the practical problems faced by high-net-worth families in the post-epidemic era by consulting a large number of materials. Then use the comparative analysis method to summarise the development of family trusts in China through the research and comparison of family trusts in different countries, put forward constructive opinions on the inheritance of family assets with high net worth in China, discuss the research progress of family trust in the field of asset inheritance in recent years with a thinking method, and analyse it in different cultures. And the application and impact in the legal context.

  • Nonlinear Dynamic Impact of Electricity Consumption on Economic Growth in
           Odisha: A Disaggregated Causality Analysis

    • Abstract: The paper examines the causal link between electricity consumption and Odisha’s economic growth using linear and nonlinear causality tests in annual data from 1981 to 2020. The study uses both linear and non-linear causality on aggregate and sectoral data. Based on the empirical analysis, the study finds that electricity consumption strongly granger causes state’s economic growth. Further, sectoral-level analysis shows that electricity consumption exhibits a strong causal relationship with the primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors. This finding is consistent for both linear and non-linear granger causality tests. Moreover, the estimation of long-run elasticity reveals that both secondary and tertiary sectors have greater than unity elasticity whereas the primary sector has less than unity elasticity. The rolling elasticity shows that elasticity is increasing over time and across the sectors, barring the tertiary sector. More mechanized activities in the primary sector will increase the consumption of electricity and more value addition to the economic growth of the state. The policy intervention would be to reduce electricity losses (leakages) as well as increase the production of electricity to increase economic growth. Considering the greater role of electricity in the state’s economic progress, intervention from both the state government and the Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission, the regulatory body of the state, is very much essential.

  • China’s Greenfield Investment and African Countries’ Green Growth
           Under the Belt and Road Initiative

    • Abstract: Though in recent years African countries have experienced rapid economic growth, there is a growing need for them to accelerate the process of green growth to address challenges like climate change and depletion of natural resources. Under the framework of Belt and Road Initiative, this paper empirically examines the impact of China’s greenfield investment on green growth of African countries based on the STIRPAT model, using panel data of 37 African countries from 2003 to 2020. The results show that China’s greenfield investment can significantly contribute to green growth of African countries, including the improvement of energy productivity, CO2 productivity and non-energy material productivity, which confirms the validity of the “Pollution Halo Hypothesis” in the African region, and improvements in institutional quality can increase the contribution of greenfield investments. Compared with global greenfield investment, China is playing an important role in the green growth of African countries. The research in this paper expands the existing literature on investment and green growth, helps to grasp the reality of the environmental effects of China’s greenfield investment in Africa, and provides empirical evidence and policy support for Sino-African economic and trade cooperation and the high-quality green development of the “Belt and Road”.
