  • Personal debts issues are common matters and happen in every country. Excessive debts have led to default payments and ended in personal bankruptcy filing. The number of personal bankruptcy cases doubles in United States from 200,000 cases to 450,000 cases from 1970 to 1980 (White, 1987). In Malaysia, personal bankruptcy filing has been increasing at an alarming rate where Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) has announced that there are 251,209 cases as at September 2013 (The Star, 2013. In addition, recent bankruptcy record exhibits that the declared bankrupt cases are becoming more prevalent among younger generation as compared to past years records. The increase in personal bankruptcy ca...

  • Canada represents as well-developed high-income richly endowed with abundant natural resources and advanced technological infrastructure and high wages, which will allow them to attract FDI inflows to the country for years. This study makes an attempt to test the possible directions of causality between real exchange and FDI flows on the one hand and the impact of FDI inflows and real exchange rate on economic growth on the other, with specific reference to Canada for the period of 1970-2015. In this study, the time series technique has been employed, reinforced with co-integration, error correction modelling and variance decomposition including LRSM ...

  • The flows of foreign investment are the fundamental elements in the economic growth of countries within the globalization process of economy. Canada has a highly-developed economy, advanced technological infrastructure that will allow them to attract flows of FDI. This study makes an attempt to test the possible directions of causality between exchange rate and flows of foreign direct investment in Canada for the period of 1970 to 2015. The methods applied are the error corrections and variance decompositions techniques including LRSM. To the best of my knowledge, there has not been any study on this issue using this technique. Our findings on this study suggests that the direction of...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mansor H. Ibrahim (2019)

  • The emergence of Islamic viewpoints on economic issues under the umbrella of Islamic economics has captivated much interest especially in its practical manifestation in Islamic banking and finance. In light of the failure of mainstream economics to address many pressing issues, and hence the need for alternative views, this paper offers assessments of Islamic economics whether (i) it is relevant to this need, (ii) it has progressed to the extent that it has been made to become relevant, and (iii) it is also in need of reform. While I argue that Islamic economics is relevant, it falls short of expectations on the second issue. The major reasons being: (a) the lack of progress in Islami...

  • The theory of commodity pricing is one of the foundations of economic theory and applications. A mathematical model is proposed, from first principles and based on the formalism of statistical physics, for describing the prices of commodities. Both spot and futures prices are analyzed. The calibration and predictions of the model, based on market data, provide strong evidence in support of the model. Consider the behavior of market prices. As can be seen from Figure 8.1, the price of silver and gold appear to have a random time evolution. Furthermore, the two prices seem to be positively correlated; in contrast, the price of gold and oil seem to be negatively correlated. Market data s...

  • The_term_structure_of_interest_rates_in_Australia_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abul Mansur Mohammed Masih; Vicky Ryan (2005)

  • The term structure of interest rates in Australia, using data of different types as well as frequencies covering the period 1991(11) to 2000(9) is investigated using a relatively new modelling strategy previously untested on Australian interest rate data. Developed by Pesaran and Shin (2002 Pesaran,MH and Shin,Y. 2002. "Long-run structural modeling." Econometric Reviews, 21:49-87.), this strategy incorporates long-run structural relationships in an otherwise unrestricted vector auto regression model (VAR). The econometric tests indicate that in Australia, contrary to popular belief, long-term interest rates more often than not lead shorter-term interest rates, at least for the interes...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2014)

  • The economic role of the state in Islam is a hot topic that has interested many Islamic economists. Their general approach has been to examine the verses of the Qur'an as well as the ahadith and the sunnah of the Prophet and then deduce from these how an ideal Islamic economy should function today. This approach can be summarized as 'what the economic role of the state in Islam should be'.

  • Authors: Smolo, Edib; Mirakhor, Abbas (2010)

  • The purpose of this paper is to review the evolution of the global financial crisis, draw lessons from it, and analyse its effect(s) on the Islamic financial industry (IFI). Based on an extensive literature review, this paper aims to highlight, explain, and discuss the implications of the global financial crisis for IFI and suggest necessary steps for the future development of the industry. The findings show that although the crisis had limited impact on IFI the major flaws of the capitalist financial system are relevant to the development of IFI. Without learning and applying the lessons from the crisis, IFI runs a risk of committing the same mistakes. Finally, greater attention shou...
