  • capitalism_morality_and_business_ethics_abbas.JPG.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • 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?

  • causality_between_financial_development_economic_growth_application_vector_error_correction_variance_decomposition_methods_saudi_arabia_masih.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • 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...

  • Authors: Eaw, Hooi Cheng; Kok, Wei Khong; Rajagopalan, Usha; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2014)

  • 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 ...

  • CES_production_function_estimates_of_elasticity_of_substitution_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (1984)

  • This paper attempts to estimate (i) the elasticity of substitution between capital and labour (ii) returns to scale and (iii) Hicks-neutral disembodIed technical progress in Australian twelve (two digit) manufacturing industries as well as total manufacturing during the period 1968/69 through 1977/78. The method employed to derive the above estimates was the constant elasticity of substitution (C.E.S.) production function. Time series data have been used in that connection. Subject to the limitations of the study, the relative orders of magnitude of the estimates appear to be plausible.

  • Chinese_dynasties_and_modern_China_unification_and_fragmentation_belal_qing.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Qing-hai, Wang (2018)

  • The history of China is briefly reviewed to ascertain the features that are common to the various dynasties. Our study shows that China has repeatedly gone through a historical phase of fragmentation and a historical phase of unification. In our view, the single most important factor in the unity, stability and longevity of a dynasty is the system for determining the succession of the emperor. Given the vastly changed circumstances of the present era, we discuss the relevance of China's historical pattern of fragmentation and unification. The contemporary rise of China is shown to follow a pattern that is similar to the case of many previous dynasties. A few tentative predictions are ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Pang, Tang; Ying, Zhang; Baaquie, Belal E.; Podobnik, Boris (2015)

  • This paper applies Zipf rank approach to measure how long it will take for the individual economy to reach the final state of equilibrium by using local-level data of China's urban areas. The indicators, the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita and the market capitalization (MCAP per capita of 150 major cities in China are used for analyzing their convergence. Besides, the power law relationship is examined for GDP and MCAP. Our findings show that, compared to the classical approaches:β-convergence and σ-convergence, the Zipf ranking predicts that, in approximately 16 years, all the major cities in China will reach comparable values of GDP per capita. However,the MCAP per capita te...

  • comment_on_china_foreign_aid_at_a_transitional_stage_ariff.pdf.jpg
  • 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.

  • comment_on_international_and_regional_cooperation_Asia’s_role_and_responsibilities_ariff.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • 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.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2017)

  • 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.
