  • Inevitability of Budget Deficit in a Growing Economy

    • Authors: Yasuhito Tanaka
      Abstract: Using a simple macroeconomic model and a model with microeconomic foundations about behavior of consumers and firms, we examine the budget deficit in a growing economy, and will show mainly the following results. 1) If the initial savings is positive (or investment of private firms is not large), we need budget deficit including interest payments on government bonds to maintain full employment with or without inflation. 2) If the initial savings is negative (or investment of private firms is large), investment of private firms cannot be financed only by consumers’ investment, but also by the government. 3) If the interest rate on the government bonds is larger than the growth rate, the budget surplus excluding interest payments is necessary to maintain full employment under constant prices.

  • Exploring the Relationship Between Motivational Beliefs and Self-Regulated
           Learning

    • Authors: Zurina Md Nen; Nur Zafifa Kamarunzaman, Muhamad Fuad bin Abdul Karim, Thenmolli Vadeveloo, Alice Shanthi
      Abstract: With the rise of digital evolution as a new approach to teaching and learning, coupled with the current COVID-19 global pandemic where students are granted enormous autonomy throughout their learning process, the need for students to develop self-regulated learning (SRL) skills is even more urgent. Moreover, extensive studies found that the current global pandemic has impacted students’ motivation for learning, particularly when information technology infrastructure and facilities are lacking and social support from lecturers and peers is limited. This study was carried out to explore the relationship between students’ motivational beliefs and self-regulated learning. The study adopted a quantitative study involving 142 students. An analysis of the survey adapted from Pintrich and De Groot (1990) reveals that there is a highly positive and significant association between motivational beliefs and self-regulated learning. The study acknowledges collaborative learning as a recent intervention in improving students’ learning experiences. As such, it is recommended that future research can explore how collaborative learning excites students’ SRL skills and strategies, particularly in the post-pandemic period.

  • Innovations in the Accommodation Sector in Kenya, During the Covid-19 Era

    • Authors: Kabii Francis
      Abstract: The purpose of the research was to investigate the effects of creativity and innovation as a survival strategy in the accommodation sector in Kenya during the covid-19 era. The specific objective of the study was to document services innovations products innovations and technological innovations applied and their effects on the performance of selected accommodations in Kenya. The research adopted both exploratory and descriptive designs. This research samples hotels in Nairobi, the Kenyan coastal and Naivasha regions. The target population was accommodation facilities which are rated between 3 and 5 stars rated. The study collected both qualitative and quantitative data. Quantitative data was collected using researcher administered questionnaire while qualitative data was collected through interviews, observation, and group discussions. The cluster sampling method was used. The first cluster represented accommodation located at the Kenyan coast, the second cluster those from the Nairobi region, and the third cluster those in the Naivasha region. A total of 402 respondents participated in the study. About 61% (249) of those who participated in the study were married as compared to 31 % who were single. The majority (64%) of these respondents were aged between 25 years and 30 years with a minority of 6% being above 46 years. The study found that most establishments invested in service, product, and technological innovations in their operation in the front office, guest rooms’ dining rooms and restaurants Gym and wellness centers, and conference facilities. These innovations and creativity are among the reasons most of these accommodations managed to reopen and survive the pandemic period. The findings indicated that the majority of accommodations (68%) had fixed a transparent glass at the reception and the front desk which minimized contact between them and the front office personnel. The study noted that 51% of respondents introduced an express check-in/out process while a majority (68%) introduced contactless payments for all services rendered in their facility. The finding showed that 54% of respondents did not introduce digital menus as compared to 46% who had it. Only 20% of the respondents said they use UV light for disinfection although they do not use robots. A minority (35%) said they use chat-bots as compared to 65% who said they have not invested in this technology. About 76% of the respondents said they have invested in teleconferencing equipment and infrastructure. All establishments said that they have embarked on extensive marketing and customer recovery strategies as they adapt to living with the virus. The study concludes that the above innovations and creativity should continue so that the accommodation industry will survive. This will call for high investment and change of business model to cope with changing consumer behavior. Further study is recommended to determine the best suitable business models to survive the pandemic as it keeps mutating.

  • Do Greek University Students Trust Social Media Regarding Science Related
           Issues' The Covid-19 Case

    • Authors: Konstantinos Vranias; Argyrios Kyridis
      Abstract: This research aimed in revealing the trends of Greek universities’ student population in terms of their trust in social media, focusing on information and news related to scientific issues, and particularly on issues related to Covid-19. The sample of our study consisted of 557 people studying in various faculties of Greek universities throughout the country. Their answers in a questionnaire were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Students’ answers revealed that despite they often resort to the use of social media and internet sources for informational purposes, they tend not to consider them as the most reliable source of obtaining information, regardless of the topic. They state that, contemplating the science and Covid-19 related information shared on social media platforms as unreliable and inaccurately presented, they try to cross-check it by drawing news from other media, a practice that contributes to them being able to distinguish fake news from true ones.
