  • Research Monograph


  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Hassan, Wiaam; Sowell, Sarafuddin Abdul Syahid (2018)

  • Higher education plays an important role in the human capital development of a country. Investment in higher education generally rises every year, and sustaining the financing of public institutions involved in higher education is becoming economically burdensome upon the state.While the cost for sustaining higher education is rising, the allotment for it in the government budget is eroding. In light of this, governments around the world, including Malaysia, are exploring measures to financially maintain higher education institutions without shifting the burden of ever-increasing university fees onto students and their families.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Masih, Rumi (1996)

  • Unlike previous studies on the causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth, this paper illustrates how the finding of cointegration (i.e. long-term equilibrium relationship) between these variables, may be used in testing Granger causality. Based on the most recent Johansen's multivariate cointegration tests preceded by various unit root or non-stationarity tests, we test for cointegration between total energy consumption and real income of six Asian economies: India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. Non-rejection of cointegration between variables rules out Granger non-causality and imples at least one way of Granger-causality, eit...

  • Authors: Chowdhury, Mohammad Ashraful Ferdous (2019)

  • In spite of the expanding number of studies investigating the effect of institutional quality on capital flows, a very few attempts has been made to investigate the impact of capital flows on the institutional quality of host countries.This study investigates the role of capital flows on the institutional infrastructure of the OIC countries, which are divided into three separate essays. The first essay investigates the impact of the official development assistance (ODA) on the institutional development of the OIC counties. The research uses system GMM, and the data for this study is obtained from 40 OIC countries for the three-year average period from 1991 to 2016. Empirical findings ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Algahtani, Ibrahim (2008)

  • Using a portfolio balance approach, this paper makes an initial attempt to examine the importance of international factors, such as foreign interest rate and nominal effective exchange rate, on the stability of long-run money demand function in an open developing economy with free capital movement. Saudi Arabia is taken as a case study over the period (1986-2004). The method applied is the "Long Run Structural Modelling" (LRSM) (Pesaran and Shin, Econometric Reviews, 2002) which has tried to address the atheoretical nature of a lot of conventional cointegrating estimates. The stability of the functions has also been tested by CUSUM and CUSUMSQ. Our findings tend to suggest that the fo...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ng, Adam Boon Ka; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Mirakhor, Abbas (2015)

  • While formal institutional quality has been used to explain the finance-growth nexus, the role of social capital has not been fully addressed. The proposition of “better finance, more growth” is important amidst concerns over the erosion of ethics and trust in finance in the aftermath of the 2007/2008 global financial crisis. Using threshold estimation technique, this study examines whether the growth effect of stock market development differs according to the distinct levels of ethical behavior and trustworthiness in a cross-section of 73 jurisdictions during the post-crisis period. The results demonstrate that the impact of stock market liquidity on gross domestic product (GDP) and ...

  • exchange_rate_interest_rate_thailand_look_traditional_revisionist_views_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2009)

  • In this paper, we analyze the traditional-revisionist debate on whether high interest rate can defend the downfall in currency values by allowing for asymmetric responses of exchange to positive and negative changes in the interest rate using Thailand data. Applying an EGARCH specification with long spam of data, we find evidence in support of the revisionist view. Namely, while the decline in the interest rate may lead to currecy depreciation, we find no evidence that high interest rate appreciates the currency. Instead, albeit small in magnitude, high interest rate tends to lead further depreciation. Thus, the policy of high interest rate to defend the currency can be futile and cos...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Haron, Hasnah; Ismail, Ishak; Shaikh Abdul Razak, Shaikh Hamzah (2011)

  • The study investigates the relationships between supervisory influence, role ambiguity and sales target on intention to perform unethical behavior. It also examines how attitudes, perceived behavioral control, subjective norm and moral obligation mediates the relationship of supervisory influence, role ambiguity and sales target on intention to perform unethical behavior. The respondents of the study comprise 246 individual insurance agents. The result of the study shows that there is a relationship between supervisory influence, role ambiguity and sales target on intention to perform unethical behavior. The study found that attitude partially mediates the relationship between supervi...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Sulaiman, Saliza; Danbatta, Bello Lawal; Abdul Rahman, Rashidah (2014)

  • This empirical paper was aimed at exploring and analyzing the earnings management practices which is often refers to as “Figure Massaging”. The aim of this study is to gather further evidences as to whether these practices constituted an act of misconduct or fraud while taking into consideration the modern business environment's challenges. The analysis provided us with an appropriate evidence that on average, the listed alleged fraud firms in Malaysia had aggressively managed their reported earnings prior to the alleged fraud year and continue to smoothen their earnings subsequent to alleged fraud year through both accruals and real earnings management.
