  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Alias, Emmy Farha; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Ismail, Illisriyani; Radam, Alias (2012)

  • Economists recognized that exchange rate have a significant impact on trade. In this study we employed the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) bounds testing procedure to analyze the impact of exchange rate on tomato’s export and import for Malaysia. The period of study covers 1997-2007 using quarterly data. Real Effective Exchange Rate (REER) was used rather than conventional exchange rate since this study covers the trade between Malaysia and the rest of the world. Our results indicate that both the export and import of tomatoes exhibit significant long-run relationships with REER. Causal effects in both cases are bidirectional. However, while the sign is economically correct for ...

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (1991)

  • This book examines the importance of the Pacific region to the Malaysian economy. Particular emphasis is placed on the contributions of the Pacific to Malaysia's trade expansion and industrial development through foreign investment. The book also traces the trends in the Pacific, discusses the possible impact of such trends on the Malaysian economy in the years ahead, and draws policy implications for the 1990s and beyond.

  • The next financial crisis and how to save capitalism.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Askari, Hossein; Mirakhor, Abbas (2015)

  • The financialization of the economy has brought a number of interrelated problems which have contributed to growing income and wealth inequality. Askari and Mirakhor assert that it is time to make a bold change by putting our financial house in order and on a better path, advocating for a fundamental reform of the financial system.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Bohlolvand, Abbas; Sadr, Seyed Kazem; Hashemi, Seyed Abolghasem (2015)

  • Water markets are instrumental in efficient allocation and pricing of scarce water by enhancing allocative and price efficiency of water use. The prerequisites for water market formation are tradable water rights independent from ownership of the land, extensive water canals, water use associations, and adequate market regulations. Mojen water market has been facilitating exchange of alternative water rights for more than 40 years accommodating among other things 30% of total farmers water demand. The total volume of water exchanged through the marker over the 3 year period of (2002-2004) are 38, 54 and 88 Q3, with average price of 555, 651, and 664 IR/Q3, respectively. The purpose of...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baharumshah, Ahmad Zubaidi; Mohd, Siti Hamizah; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2009-09-01)

  • This study examines the demand for broad money (M2) in China using the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) cointegration framework. The results based on the bounds testing procedure confirm that a stable, long-run relationship exists between M2 and its determinants: real income, inflation, foreign interest rates and stock prices. Importantly, our results reveal that stock prices have a significant wealth effect on long- and short-run broad money demand; its omission can lead to serious misspecifications in the money demand function (MDF). This finding is consistent with the notion that asset inflation (deflation) has systematic influence on the pattern of monetary aggregates.

  • yen-dollar_exchange_rate__Malaysian_macroeconomic_dynamics_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2007-09-01)

  • This paper empirically assesses the effect of the yen-dollar exchange rate on selected macroeconomic variables, namely, real output, price level, and money supply, for Malaysia. The results, which are based on a vector autoregressive framework, suggest that variations in the yen-dollar rate can have significant influences on Malaysia’s macroeconomic variables. More specifically, the yen-dollar depreciation leads to contraction in real GDP and money supply. These results are fairly robust to alternative model specifications. We believe that, apart from providing important insights into the interactions between the yen-dollar rate and domestic macroeconomic variables, our results contri...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: V. Rasiah, R. Ratneswary; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Ow, Wilson Chee Seong; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2015)

  • The purpose of this study is to explore the long-run relationships and short-run dynamic interactions between environmental degradation (proxied by carbon dioxide, CO2 and the independent variables of consumption (proxied by income level or gross domestic product, GDP per capita) and energy use in Malaysia over the period 1971 to 2008, using time-series analysis. The multivariate cointegration methodology is applied in this study to establish the possible causal relations between the variables concerned. The cointegration test and the vector error correction model display the evidence of a positive long-run relationship between consumption and environmental degradation while energy us...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Masih, Rumi; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2016)

  • The study has two main objectives: (i) to investigate whether there is pure contagion or fundamental-based contagion/interdependence among the Eurozone equity markets (Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Netherlands), attributable to the shocks stemming from nine major crises around the world (ii) to investigate the evolution of market integration, whether mainly short-run or long-run. Wavelet decompositions, in both its discrete and continuous forms, are employed to unveil the multi-horizon nature of co-movements, volatility and lead–lag relationships. This is to unveil the path of linkages and the behavior underlying the transmission mechanism of financial shocks across major Eurozone...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Al-Sahlawi, Mohammed A.; De Mello, Lurion (2010)

  • Saudi Arabia ranks sixteenth among nations based on 2002 fossil-fuel carbon-dioxide emissions per capita. Even though Saudi Arabia is the world's largest exporter of oil, not suprisingly consumption of petroleum products represents the bulk of the country's fossil-fuel emissions is from electricity generation. Use of natural gas increasingly has become important since the mid-1980s and in 2008 accounts for 31.3 percent of total fossil-fuel carbon-dioxide emissions.
