  • The Interactive Effects of Corruption and Institutional Quality on
           Economic Performance

    • Abstract: This study was motivated by the quest to investigate how the interaction between corruption and institutional quality affects Nigeria's economic performance by testing the validity of the “sand the wheels” and “grease the wheels” corruption hypothesis through the Barro-type endogenous growth model from the Nigerian perspective which has been ignored by extant studies. Annual time series data obtained from the World Development Indicators (WDI), the Transparency International(TI),and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) from 1970 to 2020 were used to conduct the study's analysis. The study employed the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) approach to determine the interactive effects of corruption and institutional quality on economic performance. The study revealed that corruption-institutional quality interaction exerts a negative and significant impact on economic performance. This supports the assertion that institutional quality in Nigeria is feeble and overwhelmed by the magnitude of corruption and the level of individual influences. The trajectory of Nigeria's economic performance is impeded by high level of corruption and weak institutional quality. Therefore, it is imperative for policy interventions to focus on tackling the incidence of corruption, improving institutional qualities which would have ripple positive effects on Nigeria's economic performance.

  • Stochastic Panel Analysis of Globalization and Poverty Reduction in BRICS
           Countries: Implications for Sustainable Development

    • Abstract: This study investigated dynamic interaction between globalization and poverty reduction in BRICS countries within the period of 1990 and 2019. This study is motivated by the rising development challenges confronting the world today, in which poverty reduction and the lack of empirical studies regarding globalization and poverty reduction in BRICS countries are significant. The study utilized the techniques of Impulse Response Functions (IRFs) and Variance Decomposition to address the objective of this study. The results from this study showed that a long-run convergence existed among globalization components and poverty reduction in BRICS countries. Also, FDI, trade openness and the number of people using internet, and HDI responded immediately to each other’s policy shocks, but not in the most desired or best direction. Therefore, the policymakers and other relevant stakeholders in BRICS countries need to embark on swift policy responses that will shape and redirect the economic components of globalization- inflows of FDI, trade openness and the number of people using internet in such a way to bring poverty reduction in this economic bloc.

  • The Impact of Customer Perceived Support on Target-Based Customer
           Citizenship Behaviors: The Mediating Effects of Brand Reputation and

    • Abstract: Customers' voluntary behaviors (i.e., customer citizenship behaviors, CCBs) are of ever-increasing interest, given that they produce extraordinary value for service providers. Whether customer perceived support (CPS) from service providers leads to CCBs has remained largely understudied in service marketing literature. Moreover, the underlying mechanisms through which CPS can result in CCBs receives even less attention in previous studies. Thus, the purpose of this research is to examine the influence of CPS on target-based CCBs (customer- and firm-oriented CCBs), and the mediating roles of two important relational factors (customer-based brand reputation (CBR) and customer satisfaction (CS) in the relationship between CPS and CCBs in the context of after-sales service. Structural equation modeling using AMOS was employed to empirically test the hypotheses on survey data from 368 Chinese smartphone customers. The results showed that CPS positively influenced firm-oriented CCBs, while there was no direct link between CPS and customer-oriented CCBs. Furthermore, CBR and CS mediated the relationship between CPS and CCBs, respectively. This research contributed greater clarity and a better understanding of how CPS effectively boosts CBR and CS to encourage customers' voluntary behaviors desired by service providers.
