  • 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.

  • Finance_and_inequality_in_eight_Asian_countries_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2018)

  • The present paper seeks to assess the implications of increasing financial sector size on income inequality in eight Asian countries - Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and South Korea. Adopting a panel data approach, it document a non-linear relation between income inequality and financial sector size in these countries. More precisely, the increasing financial sector size is favourable to equal income distribution only up until a size threshold, beyond which further expansion of the financial sector can worsen income distribution. The analysis further highlights the income-equalizing effect of economic growth and infrastructure development and...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Mohd Tahir, Hirnissa; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2012)

  • In the last four decades, the financial services sector has becoming more important for the Malaysian economy. Despite gaining importance for enhancing economic growth, the contribution of the finance sector to the total services real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has been ranked second in Peninsular Malaysia, third in Sabah and fourth in Sarawak. The purpose of the present paper is to determine whether the contribution of the financial services sector in the three regions in Malaysia, namely Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak show any distinct pattern. In the jargon of economic development literature, we seek to determine whether there is “convergence” or similarity in the pattern...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Alaabed, Alaa; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2016)

  • The purpose of this paper is to test the growing converging views regarding the destabilizing and growth-halting impact of interest-based debt financial system. The views are as advocated by the followers of Keynes and Hyman Minsky and those of Islam. Islam discourages interest rate based debt financing as it considers it not very conducive to productive activities and human solidarity. Likewise, since the onset of the crisis of 2007/2008, calls by skeptics of mainstream capitalism have been renewed. The paper applies a threshold regression model to Malaysian data and finds that the relationship between growth and financial development is non-linear. A threshold is estimated, after wh...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Abdeldayam, M.M.; Karbhari, Yusuf; Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain (2015)

  • The term privatisation has many shades of meaning. The overall purpose of privatisation is that of transferring the provision of goods and services from the public sector to the private sector and Kay and Thompson (1986) suggest that the term covers denationalisation (the sale of state owned enterprises), deregulation (the introduction of competition) and contracting out (the provision by private sector organisations of public services). Over the past 25 years or so, all of these various forms of privatisation have developed and evolved and are now a pervasive feature of the economies of many countries.

  • financial_constraint_firm_investment_malaysia_investigation_investment_cash_flow_relationship_mansor_pisal.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ismail, Mohd Adib; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Yusoff, Mohammed; Zainal, Mohd-Pisal (2010)

  • This paper investigates the presence of financial constraints among firms in Malaysia using firm level panel data analysis. The empirical results based on panel GMM demonstrate that financial constraints are present in the market, which indicate that the firms are unable to access to external forms of financing. In addition, the presence also signifies the presence of asymmetric information problem between the firm and its financer. Thus, the neoclassical investment theory which based on assumption of complete information such that only factor prices and technology determine firm’s desired capital stock is simply rejected. Eventually, their investments are much affected by fluctuation...

  • financial_integration_international_capital_mobility_muzafar_sarinder_baharom.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Kumari, Sarinder; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2012)

  • This study was conducted to explore the linkages between savings and investment and to further test whether there is any evidence of relationship between financial integration and international capital mobility. The empirical model to test the capital mobility hypothesis applied here employs the panel data approach to the basic regression model used by Feldstein & Horioka (1980). The study covers ASEAN5 and ASEAN+3 (with China, Korea and Japan included). The findings of this study corroborate with other studies that savings and investment are cointegrated and this can be interpreted as a manifestation of the inter-temporal budget constraint rather than evidence of low capital mobility...
