  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas (2016)

  • In 2012, PM Cameron called for "moral capitalism"; a system based on two pillars: (i) social responsibility of individuals and business; and (ii) inclusion and sharing of the fruits of the economy. Sceptics such as William Bowles termed the call "hypocritical", "empty", "rubbish", and "hot air", as he asked what does moral capitalism really mean? The rich sharing their wealth with the poor?

  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; al-Elg, Ali; Madani, Haider (2009)

  • This article makes an attempt to test the possible directions of causality between financial development and economic growth, which were labelled by Patrick (1966) as the supply-leading and demand-following hypothesis. Saudi Arabia is taken as a case study. The methods applied are the error correction and variance decompositions techniques including the most recently developed ‘long-run structural modelling (LRSM)’ (Pesaran and Shin, 2002), which by imposing exactly identifying and overidentifying restrictions on the cointegrating vector has taken care of a major limitation of the conventional cointegrating estimates in that they were atheoretical in nature. To the best of our knowled...

  • The Insolvency department (MdI) statistical releases indicate total bankruptcy cases as at September 2013 is 251,209 bankrupt filed (The Star, 2013) and recent bankruptcy record exhibits that the declared bankrupt cases are getting younger as comparing to past years record which worries by Bank Negara. The increase in personal bankruptcy case reflects erosion in credit evaluation process and this has lead the banks to be cautious and to tighten their lending process and loan approval. The purpose of this research study is to examine the causality factors towards personal bankruptcy in Malaysia. The concept of financial numeracy has emerged recently in personal financial management to ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2014)

  • Understandably, Naohiro Kitano's work experience at the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has given him a comparative advantage in writing a paper on China's foreign aid. China's foray into international economic cooperation as a donor is admirably documented in his paper (Kitano, 2014). The paper provides valuable insights into the network of Chinese aid programs. It is amazing that China, a major recipient of external aid in the past (largely from Soviet sources), could emerge as a major donor in its own right with visible signs, but it is unclear if that experience has influenced its own aid programs.

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2010)

  • Asia's role and responsibilities in international and regional cooperation, depicted by Drysdale and Armstrong (2010), can be understood best in the context of the postcrisis trans-Pacific rebalancing. Asia has been in the thick of the global economic crisis, given its extensive financial and trade exposure to the West. Asia is an integral part of not only the problem but also the solution, for it can play a pivotal role in the postcrisis rebalancing exercise, just as it had contributed to the global imbalances in the first place.

  • The attempt by Severino (2011) to cover the width and depth of the intriguing integration process in Southeast Asia over four decades merits serious attention. One can hardly disagree with the comprehensive description and crispy analysis by Severino, a former Secretary General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Nevertheless, it will be useful to revisit some of the highlights and issues.

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2015)

  • The Kim and Lee (2015) paper on the innovation experiences of East Asia and Latin America represents a refreshing attempt at relating the economic impact of science and technology (S&T) in the two regions to the S&T policies pursued, using econometric techniques. The authors show that East Asia has been more successful than Latin America in the application of S&T knowledge to grow economically. They conclude that the differences in the contributions of S&T to economic growth in the two regions are largely due to the adoption of what appears to be diametrically opposite policy approaches toward S&T. While the S&T policy impact could help explain the differences in the pace of economic ...

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2013)

  • Sato et al. (2013) represents a significant contribution to the literature. The novelty of their paper lies in the construction of a new dataset on industry-specific real effective exchange rates (REER) on a monthly basis from January 2005 to the present. The authors have convincingly demonstrated that REER differs not only between countries, but also across industries, a finding that would have slipped through the net of aggregate data analysis. The authors have used the industry-wise producer price index (PPI), instead of consumer price index (CPI), not only because the latter includes nontradables, but also because the former tends to vary across industries, reflecting interindustr...

  • Korea’s growth track record is truly extraordinary by any measure. It is not easy to explore Korea’s astounding development trajectory amidst the many obstacles that stood in its way or to gaze into the crystal ball for a glimpse of its future, given the numerous challenges and uncertainties that stare in its face. Noland (2012) has skilfully carried out this task. His excellent analysis bears testimony to his deep understanding of Korea’s history, psyche, and growth strategy.

  • The Barfield paper (2009) is fascinating as it provides deep insights into the political processes that shape the US position on matters relating to trade policies.What makes it all the more interesting is the current context, now that the USA has a new president with high expectations staked on and that the USA and its trading partners are stuck in a serious recession. The paper confirms free traders’ worst fears that the USA will likely turn up the heat on its trading partners, with the Democratic Party at the helm and the domestic economy in the doldrums. The Democrats, who control both the presidency and Congress known to be tough on trade policies, are likely to succumb more read...
