  • The Impact of Oil Shocks on Exchange Rates: The Case of Selected OPEC

    • Authors: Shahram Fattahi, Zainab Moridi, Rasoul Moridi; Zainab Moridi, Rasoul Moridi
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: OPEC countries are heavily dependent on oil dollar revenues through which impact on exchange rates. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of oil shocks on the real exchange rates for selected OPEC countries for the period 1980-2018. The oil shocks are first obtained using the vector auto-regression model and then their effects on the exchange rates are estimated using a panel quantile regression model. The results show that effect of oil shocks on exchange rates varies across quantiles. The oil specific-demand shock and global demand shock have a negative and significant effect on the real exchange rates while the oil supply shock has a positive and significant effect on the real exchange rates in OPEC countries. Furthermore, oil specific-demand shock has the most impact on the real exchange rates.

      Abstract: The study explores appropriate mechanism for diversifying Nigeria’s revenue to tap from the opportunities offered by the blue economy. The study conceptually reviewed extant literature as a basis for acquiring an in depth understanding of the phenomenon with a view to offer practical recommendations on the issue. The study discovered that blue economy has the potential of augmenting government revenue if the financial and environmental issues bedeviling the development of the sector are properly addressed. Thus, the study recommends political will and strong institutions for effective running and implementation of blue economy strategies in the nation based on the existing international standards. It also suggested that, to boost revenue from blue economy, Area-based Management needs to be established.

  • The Underappreciated Effects of Unreliability on Multiple Regression and

    • Authors: David Trafimow
      Pages: 14 - 30
      Abstract: There is an increasing trend for researchers in the social sciences to draw causal conclusions from correlational data. Even researchers who use relatively causally neutral language in describing their findings, imply causation by including diagrams with arrows. Moreover, they typically make recommendations for intervention or other applications in their discussion sections, that would make no sense without an implicit assumption that the findings really do indicate causal pathways. The present manuscript commences with the generous assumption that regression-based procedures extract causation out of correlational data, with an exploration of the surprising effects of unreliability on causal conclusions. After discussing the pros and cons of correcting for unreliability, the generous assumption is questioned too. The conclusion is that researchers should be more cautious in interpreting findings based on correlational research paradigms.

  • Determinants and Sustainability of Manufacturing Sector Performance in
           Nigeria: The Roles of Selected Macroeconomic Variables

    • Authors: Falade Abidemi Olufemi Olusegun
      Pages: 31 - 40
      Abstract: Manufacturing sector is a vibrant sector that spurs growth in every other sector of the economy. Despite this, macroeconomic environment in the country has not made this desire materialized. Therefore, the study examined the determinants and sustainability of manufacturing sector performance in Nigeria from 1994-2019. The data used include manufacturing sector output, interest rate, real exchange rate, tax rate, money supply and trade openness. Also, Error Correction Model (ECM) and Pairwise Granger Causality(PGC) techniques were used for the formulated objective. The unit root test confirmed stationarity of interest rate at level; while other were integrated of order one (D = 1). The Johansen co-integration established a long-run relationships. The ECM corrected the disequilibrium at an annual rate of 77.5%. Also, real exchange rate, tax rate and trade openness had a direct and significant effect on manufacturing sector output. While, interest rate and money supply were non-significance. The PGC result revealed a bi-directional causality between real exchange rate and manufacturing sector and tax rate and manufacturing sector output. It was concluded that increase in consumption tax, real exchange rate and liberation of the economy were the determinants of manufacturing sector performance, while appreciation of nigeria’s currency (naira) and increase in tax rate with proportional improvement in infrastructural facilities are needed to sustain it. Therefore, recommended that the financial institutions especially the apex bank should eliminate different bench-mark of exchange rate policy by allowing the market force of demand and supply to depict the real value of naira.

  • Share Pledging and Firm Cash Holdings: Evidence from Chinese A-share
           Listed Firms

    • Authors: Hongmei Xu
      Pages: 41 - 59
      Abstract: This paper examines the relation between share pledging and cash holdings of Chinese A-share listed-firms. We find that during the years 2005 through 2015, the level of share pledging is negatively associated with cash holdings. We establish causality through a variety of econometric techniques, including a difference-in-differences approach based on a regulatory change that permits security companies to lend money to borrowers pledging their shares as collaterals. In addition, we find that the main effect is more prominent for financial constrained firms, and share pledging is associated with lower cash/investment-cash flow sensitivities and more cash dividend payouts. Overall, our findings indicate that share pledging can alleviate financial constraints of listed firms and reduce their tendencies of holding cash for precautionary motives.
