  • Journal Article


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

  • The main purpose of this paper is to discern the dynamic causal chain (in the Granger (temporal) sense rather than in the structural sense) among real output, money, interest rate, inflation and the exchange rate in the context of a small Asian developing economy, such as Indonesia. The methodology employed uses various unit root tests and Johansen's cointegration test followed by vector error-correction modelling, variance decompositions, and impulse response functions in order to capture both the within-sample and out-of-sample Granger causal chain among macroeconomic activity. Given the inward-oriented growth strategy of this small developing economy, where the real output was vuln...

  • This study aims to apply the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) technique to analyze the macroeconomic impacts of oil prices on oil importing and oil exporting economis using Russia and Japan as evidence. Quarterly data from 1997 till 2017 of macroeconomic indicators like GDP growth, CPI, exchange rate, PPI, and oil prices were used in this study. Our results indicate that in an oil importing country like Japan, oil price increase has inflationary effects on the domestic economy as the average prices increase. Also, it was found that economic growth tends to decline in the wake of rising oil prices. The value of the currency is also shown to depreciate vis-a-vis the US Dollar as th...

  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2015-09-30)

  • The on-off-on again-off again Malaysia-US Free Trade Agreement (MUSFTA) is a proposed treaty between Malaysia and the United States of America. Initial negotiations, in fact started way back in 2005 and as all other Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), the treaty aims to liberalise each other markets to parties of the agreement and directly encourage trade between the two countries. Malaysia has a commendable and enviable economic growth and development. Our macroeconomic policies have always been designed to create a more liberalized and fair international trade environment. Though Malaysia continues to accord high priority to the rule-based multilateral trading system under the World Trade...

  • Journal Article


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

  • This paper examines two types of earnings management practices, the techniques employed, the motives behind the practices and the likely good, bad or ugly implications of each. The examination and analysis of this study indicates that earnings management practices based on manager's personal motives is the ugliest with the worst negative implication. However, the result of the analysis had provided insight that improved disclosure by both managers and management will reduce the risk of bad or ugly practices. It also provided an insight for future research on the implications of various motives behind earning management practices highlighted in the paper.

  • On 8 March 2008 (GE 2008) Malaysians unexpectedly delivered a stunning blow to Malaysia's long-standing ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional (BN), at the twelfth general election. Although it won the election, BN lost its psychologically important two-thirds majority in parliament which allows it to change the Federal Constitution at will. The blow was all the more devastating as the Anwar Ibrahim-led informal coalition of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR/People's Iustice Party), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Parti Se-Islam Malaysia (PAS/Pan Islamic Party of Malaysia) managed to form state governments in almost all states in the developed western parts of Peninsular Malaysia with citizens...

  • Authors: Al Mamun, Abdullah; Abdul Wahab, Sazali; Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain (2013)

  • This study was undertaken to assess the impact of Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia's (AIM) microcredit program on microenterprise assets possessed by poor women in urban Peninsular Malaysia. In order to fulfill the above mentioned objective, in an attempt to increase understanding on the subject matter and contribute to the existing knowledge, this study employed a cross-sectional design with a stratified random sampling method. The results of this study reveal that the current market value of enterprise assets and vehicles owned by old respondents was relatively higher than that of new respondents. The findings also show that the mean market value of microenterprise assets owned by old respon...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2019)

  • Merton has proposed a model for contingent claims on a firm as an option on the firms value, and is based on a generalization of the Black-Scholes stochastic equation (Merton, 1974). A special case of Merton's model is proposed - based on the quantum oscillator - for pricing options. Two cases of the option price are obtained: both these cases yield possible candidates for the generalization of the Black-Scholes option pricing formula. However, one of the proposed option prices does not obey the martingale condition and the other does not yield the correct discounting of future cash flows. For these reasons, the option prices do not obey put-call parity. The options can, however, be u...

  • This paper examines the causality between military expenditures and economic growth for twenty selecteddeveloping countries. In this paper we test for Granger long-run causality employing the Panel Error-Correction Model (ECM) framework using annual data for the period 1970 to 2005. Military expenditure is measured using the logarithm of the ratio of military expenditures to gross domestic product (milex); while economic growth is proxied by the logarithm of real GDP per capita (rgdppc). Causation (as well as cointegration) is inferred from milex to rgdppc, in a panel setting using the Pooled Mean Group (PMG) estimator proposed by Pesaran et al. (1999) when the Error-Correction (ECM) ...

  • Studies have shown that natural disasters could pose a spectrum of challenges to human development, especially in developing countries. United Nations Development Programme (UNDP, 2004)) estimates that low human development countries accounted for more than half of reported casualties due to natural disasters for the last two decades. The study also estimates that nearly 85 percent of the people exposed to natural disasters live in either medium or low human development countries. Other related studies have shown that corrupted officials in poor countries would increase the vulnerability of these countries to natural disasters. Thus, the purpose of the present study is to investigate ...
