  • chapter 13_managing the Malaysian economy after GE 2008_Ariff.jpg.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Lopez, Greg; Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2018)

  • On 8 March 2008 (GE 2008) Malaysians unexpectedly delivered a stunning blow to Malaysia's long-standing ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional (BN), at the twelfth general election. Although it won the election, BN lost its psychologically important two-thirds majority in parliament which allows it to change the Federal Constitution at will. The blow was all the more devastating as the Anwar Ibrahim-led informal coalition of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR/People's Iustice Party), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Parti Se-Islam Malaysia (PAS/Pan Islamic Party of Malaysia) managed to form state governments in almost all states in the developed western parts of Peninsular Malaysia with citizens...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Shawtari, Fekri Ali; Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff; Shaikh Abdul Razak, Shaikh Hamzah (2018)

  • This paper examines the determinants of bank margins' in the Yemeni banking sector for Islamic and conventional banks. The first objective is to investigate whether there is a significant difference between the margins of conventional and Islamic banks. The second objective is to examine whether efficiency represents an influential factor in determining bank margins for Islamic and conventional banks controlling for other micro and macro variables. The study finds that the overall bank margin in Yemen has steadily decreased during the observation period with the exception of the year 2011. The parametric and non parametric results show that the bank margins are significantly higher fo...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2018)

  • Noland (2018) has done a remarkable service, not only putting the subject matter in perspective, but also pin-pointing some of the risks and pitfalls, and what these mean for the USA and the rest of the world, notably Asia. For starters, the US policy changes will affect all its trading partners, even if these are purely domestic, given the size of the US economy and its extensive connectivity, what more if it involves trade policy. For one thing, it is most unfortunate that the policy changes are premised on flimsy grounds, and for another, it is also questionable that such policy responses represent solutions.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2017)

  • The banking industry in Malaysia is dominated by conventional banks, with Islamic banks accounting for roughly one-fifth. In addition, the Islamic banking sector is overwhelmingly in the hands of conventional banks, thanks to their Islamic subsidiaries which outnumber the "wholesome" Islamic banks whose market share of the Islamic banking business is on the decline. In this equation, the Islamic subsidiaries of conventional banks have an upper hand, as they can ride on the coattails of their parents which gives them a competitive edge - while the stand-alone domestic Islamic banks and foreign-owned full-fledged Islamic banks have to fend for themselves. The Islamic subsidiaries of con...

  • PhD_competition_stability_relationship_dual_banking_systems_Mhd_Moutaz.pdf.jpg
  • PhD


  • Authors: Abojeib, Mhd Moutaz (2017)

  • Numerous attempts have been made to study the impact of competition on banking-stability before and after the recent global financial crisis. In the rich theoretical and empirical literature on the topic, two contradictory views have surfaced, i.e. the competition-fragility view and the competition-stability view. This thesis provides empirical evidence of a nonlinear relationship between competition and stability that explains, at least partially, the conflicting results of previous theoretical and empirical studies. Furthermore, while the existing literature focuses on conventional banking, this thesis investigates both Islamic and conventional banks in dual banking systems and expl...

The countries investigated are Malaysia, Indonesia, the U.S., Japan, the U.K., Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar with the sample period from December 2004 to December 2012. Changes in correlations for different time scales or investment horizons levels with wavelet analysis were tested.

  • Authors: Mokhtar, Maznita (2017)

  • GDP, often the proxy to measure progress in policy implementations, does not fully reflect the wellbeing of a nation, although it may be one of the contributing factors. Applying an estimation model based on panel data of 22 sample countries, we illustrate that wellbeing in general can be improved with intrinsic growth, influenced by economic stability, demand composition and sectoral composition. Additionally, key economic and quality of life factors - such as, broader income distribution, lower housing prices, lower infant mortality, effective health expenditure, higher education attainment and broadband access - are significant to households ...

  • Oil prices in the global market is usually found to be correlated with the economic growth of an economy. In this study, we make an attempt to investigate whether there is any significant relationship between oil prices and macroeconomic variables in the Moroccan economy. Using the Moroccan monthly data from 2007-2016 and the time series techniques such as co-integration, long run structural modelling, vector error correction, and variance decomposition, we found a significant statistical relationship existing between inflation, oil price, trade balance, interest rate, and economic growth, whereby oil price and interest rate are significant macroeconomic ...

  • Based on solid research, Hasan et al. (2017) has an interesting insight to share about India's apparel sector. Notwithstanding the fact that India is among the largest producers and exporters of apparel products, the study suggests that the main reason why the sector has not been up to its potential lies in the firm size distribution which is heavily dominated by small firms. Hasan et al. argue that small firms suffer from a serious lack of scale economies which deprives them of access to modern production and management technologies, and attribute it largely to India's labor regulations and enforcement regime.

  • The flows of foreign investment are the fundamental elements in the economic growth of countries within the globalization process of economy. Canada has a highly-developed economy, advanced technological infrastructure that will allow them to attract flows of FDI. This study makes an attempt to test the possible directions of causality between exchange rate and flows of foreign direct investment in Canada for the period of 1970 to 2015. The methods applied are the error corrections and variance decompositions techniques including LRSM. To the best of my knowledge, there has not been any study on this issue using this technique.

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2017)

  • This modern history of Islamic finance is pretty short spanning a period of roughly five decades, compared to conventional finance which goes back to more than four centuries earlier. Islamic finance has spread rapidly across the globe, reminiscent of Lao-tzu's famous saying "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". Malaysia, a pioneer in the development of the Islamic finance industry, has emerged as one of the major hubs for global Islamic finance.

  • With the development of Islamic banking and finance in most Muslim countries, money market became necessary for financial institution to solve the liquidity problems. However, there is much criticism of Islamic banks and financial products for their pegging to the interest rate. Islamic money market is based on the same PLS principle with other Islamic financial products, if such products are pegged to their rate of interest, then they are not PLS. More correctly, they are based on well-and sometimes not so well-hidden conventional or interest-based contracts ...

  • Understanding the determinants of portfolio investment inflows is imperative in a region highly susceptible to large amount of capital inflows like ASEAN. And to formulate the right policy, intervention and upgrade, ASEAN needs to have a good grasp on these determinants before it can manage volatile capital flows and the accompanying disruptive potential. Although a number of studies focusing on the drivers of gross capital inflows into EMEs has been established, one on ASEAN's has been largerly left out. The need for studying gross inflows is simple, as its movement has direct implication on financial stability and the vulnerability of the overall financial system. Available in p...

  • The issues of earning management has received attention from practitioners and academicians since the last couple of decades in banking sector. It is evident that bank managers practice the discretion in estimating loan/finance loss provisions for various motives such as reducing earnings variability (Agarwal, Chomsisengphet, Liu & Rhee, 2007; Kanagaretnam, 2004). Majority of the studies have been focusing on conventional banks, and only a few studies have focussed on Islamic banks, for instance, Zoubi and Al-Khazali (2007) and Othman and Mersni (2014). The significance of examining the issues in the context of Islamic banks stems from the fact that Islamic banks should not manage the...

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2016)

  • Islam has often been in the news in recent times unfortunately for the wrong reasons. The killing of innocent people in Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Somalia, and Sudan, and acts of terrorism associated with Muslims in Iraq, the United States, Spain, France, Kenya and elsewhere - not to mention religious intolerance in some Muslim countries - have tarnished the image of Islam and contributed much to the misunderstanding of the religion.
