  • PhD


  • Authors: Mohamed, Hazik (2017)

  • The breakdown of trust and cooperation as well as the failure of institutions to govern effectively can be attributed as the critical causes of the global financial meltdown. This research will extend the behavioural investigation into testing the level of adherence towards these rules of behaviour in the members of society - specifically separated into two groups, Muslims and non-Muslims. This research will analyze the comparative behaviours of Muslims and non-Muslims using selected games (from the body of published work on behavioural and experimental games). The experimental games will be carried out on test subjects in Singapore as well as in Malaysia from diverse backgrounds ... ...

  • Authors: Mahmoud Al-Jarhi, Mabid Ali Mohamed (2013)

  • After a generation of non-professional writers in Islamic economics, professional economists entered the stage with an important ambition, which has been to introduce a third alternative to humanity in addition to capitalism and socialism that would answer some of the inadequacies of each. Moreover, the analysis of human (individual and collective) behavior towards scarcity under the teachings of Islam was itself worth pursuing. The intellectual effort is yet to produce significant practices of Islamic economics. The exceptions include some application of Islamic finance that raises many questions, and a few applications of zakah and awqaf. The most serious challenge of Islamic financ...

  • This study, which compares the German system with Malaysia in the hope of improving Islamic finance, uncovers four paradoxes. Germany is chosen because its focus on mutuality and small enterprises, at the expense of profit maximisation, not only embodies the Shariah principles of justice and social welfare but also makes the system more stable. The banks' profitability and stability between 2006 and 2014 are compared. This covers their performances before, during and after the global financial crisis ...

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2010-01-01)

  • The institution of waqf, or an Islamic foundation, has played a significant role throughout Islamic history, from the time of the Prophet (pbuh) to the present time. Although this institution existed before the coming of Islam, Islam was the first religion to develop its legal system and to regulate it. It became the main device created by Muslims to facilitate most social services such as education, health care, national security, transportation facilities, basic infrastructure, etc., without any cost to the government. Recently, the creation of new waqf has concentrated mainly on movable waqf, i.e., cash waqf.

  • This is an extremely valuable book written by three highly qualified scholars whose credentials for writing such a book are difficult to match. The timing of the book is also perfect, having come at a time when the worst financial crisis in living memory has intensified the quest for reform of the international architecture. The proposals made by the authors should go a long way in not only reforming the system but also in accelerating the move towards financial globalization and convergence of the conventional and Islamic financial systems.

  • The question of whether management culture is universal of society specific has long been debated in the Middle East, with htose who accept the latter suggesting that there may be some characteristics of Arab and Islamic culture that are inimical to business development.

  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Sukmana, Raditya. (2009)

  • The paper assesses empirically the inflation-hedging properties of gold and, as comparison, of the stock market for Malaysia using montly data from July 2001 to May 2007. The results provide clear evidence that, over the sample period, gold serves as a good inflationary hedge. However, the hedging value seems to be lacking in stock prices. More specifically, from regression analyses, we note that gold provides a good hedge over all investment horizons considered and with better hedging at longer horizons. Moreover, from the VAR-based impulse response functions, the return on gold investment seems to increase immediately in response to inflation shocks. For the stock return, we find no...

  • Authors: Muhammad Abdulkarim, Fatima (2017)

  • Throughout the world, the income gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen. This disparity in income has become more obvious in the last two decades as the income of the vast majority of the world's population has been somewhat stagnant over time, while small segments of the population experience an upward trend in income. In a recent report by (Oxfam 2016), it is reported that income inequality is spiralling out of control and this is a dangerous trend that poses significant threat to the global sustainability. Income inequality is not only a problem peculiar to the developed world, but also developing countries such as Muslim countries (OIC countries) as they have in rece...

  • Authors: Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Din, Badariah H.; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2016)

  • The purpose of this paper is to relate the quality of governance with crime in Malaysia. The study also identifies the best good governance tool to fight against crime in Malaysia. The study uses time-series data on crime rates and six measures of governance: voice and accountability, political stability, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law and control of corruption. In this study the authors employed the popular autoregressive distributed lagged modeling approach to estimate the long-run model of crime and governance. The authors test the hypothesis that good governance lowers crime rates (total crime, violent and property crimes). The results suggest a negative...

  • This study provides new evidence on the relationship between external audit price and corporate governance of the largest (based on market capitalization) 100 listed firms on both the main and second board of the Bursa Malaysia (BMB) (previously known as the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange). The findings show that for main board companies, external audit price is positively and significantly associated with corporate size, complexity and internal governance variable (i.e. director’s remuneration). For the second board firms, complexity, corporate size and internal governance variables (i.e. proportion of non-executive directors to total directors) were important determinants of external a...

  • This paper examines several issues related to the implementation of ESOs among Malaysian companies. We examine a total of 52 companies, 26 ESO firms and their matched industry peers over a span of 12 years. We find ESO firm stocks to have marginally higher mean returns and lower volatility than do their pre-ESO peers. Malaysian companies are more likely to initiate ESOs when the market valuation of their stocks is low. If there is any timing, ESO initiation is timed to be most favourable to employee recipients. Market reaction to ESO announcements is significantly negative. Furthermore, stock prices do not seem to recover to pre-announcement levels during at least the subsequent 20 tr...

The 17 markets include the very large bond market of Japan, which ranks equal among the largest five markets namely in the UK, the USA, Germany and Switzerland. Sovereign debt overhang is allegedly destabilizing the world economy from October 2011, since when the then Eurozone crisis transformed into government debt overhang crisis. This book is about the economics of how the sovereign debts are rated, priced and sold on the basis of perceived risk by investors buying and selling debt instruments.
