  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Padli, Jaharudin; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2010)

  • The purpose of this paper is to find the meaningful relationship between the economic impact of the natural disaster and economic condition. The paper employed cross‐sectional analysis to investigate the relationship between economic condition namely, gross domestic product per capita (GDPpc); gross domestic product per capita squared (GDPpc2); government consumption ratio to GDP (gc); ratio of M2 over GDP(M2); years of schooling attainment (sc); land area and finally; population and the economic impact of natural disasters, whereby ten types of natural disasters were chosen. The degree to which the human and economic losses due to these ten natural disasters were measured by, the var...

  • The events of the Arab Spring have not only profound political implications but also have significance for the economies of the Middle East and their trading partners. In the short run the political uncertainty and lack of law and order has damaged economic activity, but in the long term the Arab Spring could prove beneficial for the region which has seriously underperformed other emerging markets. How can partners such as the United Kingdom help ensure a positive economic outcome from the Arab Spring rather than continuing economic meltdown if domestic turbulence continues?

  • The study investigates the extent to which mergers lead to efficiency. The data covers the period 1993-2004, which includes the pre- and post-merger years. This study attempts to evaluate technical efficiency, efficiency change, technical change, and productivity of commercial banks, finance companies, and merchant banks by using a non-parametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Malmquist Index approach as the framework for the analyses. It is found that: (i) on an average, productivity across banking institutions increased at an annual rate of 5.8% over the study period; (ii) the results also indicate that almost all of the productivity growth comes from technical change rather th...

  • Although literature on shadow economy has been growing, the examination is scarce in the case of developing countries, especially the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) economies. In this study, we develop various testable hypotheses related to shadow economy. We investigate the determinants of shadow economy across a large sample of 141 countries and examine whether it varies across OIC (42) and non-OIC (99) countries. The average size of the shadow economy in OIC countries is 34.36% of gross domestic product (GDP) while it is 30.57% of GDP in non-OlC economies. The approach of exploring various definitions, historical development, types, Islamic viewpoint and the determining ...

  • Poverty alleviation is at the top of the Millennium Development Goals' (MDGs) list of eight goals. In the year 2000, nearly all heads of states and governments met and reaffirmed their faith in the United Nations (UN) as necessary foundations of a more peaceful, prosperous and just world. At this meeting, the MDGs were adopted which the first goal is eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. The question of how to finance poverty reduction measures has been a major concern for policy makers and international organizations for many years. Although it is useful to focus on the quantity and quality of foreign aid and development assistance of donor communities, it is not the solution. In the...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Rizvi, Syed Aun Raza (2015)

  • The purpose of this paper is to analyse the implication of trade on carbon emissions in a panel of eight highly trading Southeast and East Asian countries, namely, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The analysis relies on the standard quadratic environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) extended to include energy consumption and international trade. A battery of panel unit root and co-integration tests is applied to establish the variables’ stochastic properties and their long-run relations. Then, the specified EKC is estimated using the panel dynamic ordinary least square (OLS) estimation technique. The panel co-integration statistics ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Xin, Du; Tanputraman, Winson (2015)

  • A statistical generalization of microeconomics has been made in Baaquie (2013), where the market price of every traded commodity, at each instant of time, is considered to be an independent random variable. The dynamics of commodity market prices is modeled by an action functional and the focus of this paper is to empirically determine the action functionals for different commodities. The correlation functions of the model are defined using a Feynman path integral. The model is calibrated using the unequal time correlation of the market commodity prices as well as their cubic and quartic moments using a perturbation expansion. The consistency of the perturbation expansion is verified ...

  • 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.
