An Analysis Of Chinese Trade And Fta Using Gravity Model, MINYU LIU 2018 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

An Analysis Of Chinese Trade And Fta Using Gravity Model, Minyu Liu

Applied Economics Theses

This paper assesses the impacts of the Free Trade Agreement on the volume of both the import and export of China and FTA countries or districts. We used a gravity model with dummy variables for China and each Chinese FTA partner country to account for the specificities of particular trade relations. By using the relevant theories and methods for the trade gravity model, we estimate a pooled cross-section model with data for 33 countries or districts over 15 years. The result indicates that the GDP, per capita GDP, distance, FTA, and language are the main factors that influence the volume ...


Iran Sanctions: A Compliance Perspective The Promise And Peril Of Entering The Islamic Republic, Talib Amir 2018 M.S.L. Corporate Compliance Candidate, Fordham University School of Law, 2018

Iran Sanctions: A Compliance Perspective The Promise And Peril Of Entering The Islamic Republic, Talib Amir

Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law

U.S. sanctions against Iran have limited trade between foreign and Iranian companies for decades. The 2015 nuclear agreement eased sanctions by widening the scope of permitted business dealings, but brought attendant risks to foreign companies considering venturing into Iran. This Essay proposes that companies can employ a risk-reward model to assess whether the opportunity posed by a proposed venture justifies the risks of violating sanctions laws. The Essay suggests that companies can create a model by categorizing and quantifying the likely benefits of a business deal and compare the opportunity with risks, after implementing processes to limit specific risks ...


The Science Behind How Character May Hinder The Corruptive Effects Of Power, Christine Heisey 2018 Wright State University - Main Campus

The Science Behind How Character May Hinder The Corruptive Effects Of Power, Christine Heisey

The University Honors Program

This paper represents my Honors Project and will summarize my experience related to learning more about the scientific method through working on a research project under the faculty supervision of Dr. Rachel Sturm. In particular, this research project examines how power can corrupt those who possess it and offers an explanation of how leader character may decrease these corruptive effects. The sources of power, how power affects leaders, and how different members of an organization can participate in organizational corruption will be explained. Also, I will offer some research questions unpacking the relationship between leader character and power as well ...


Can Banks Placate Knowledgeable Depositors By Offering Higher Interest Rates During A Banking Crisis?, Glenn Boyle, Roger D. Stover, Amrit Tiwana, Oleksandr Zhylyevskyy 2018 University of Canterbury

Can Banks Placate Knowledgeable Depositors By Offering Higher Interest Rates During A Banking Crisis?, Glenn Boyle, Roger D. Stover, Amrit Tiwana, Oleksandr Zhylyevskyy

Economics Working Papers

Using a conjoint analysis of 417 finance professionals from six countries, we find no evidence that higher interest rates cause knowledgeable depositors to moderate their withdrawals during a banking crisis. In fact, intended withdrawals are positively correlated with expected interest rate changes. After accounting for endogeneity, this relationship disappears, consistent with the attractiveness of higher returns being offset by increased doubts about bank solvency. The withdrawal decisions of finance professionals are also independent of their personal characteristics, but they appear to place considerable store on deposit insurance generosity and the presence of a formal insurance fund.


Business And Plurilingualism: The Advantage Of A Foreign Language, Anabelis E. Martinez 2018 Andrews University

Business And Plurilingualism: The Advantage Of A Foreign Language, Anabelis E. Martinez

Honors Theses

Nowadays, global economy has implications that suggest the need for an adaptation to operate efficiently in this new environment. Is bilingualism a skill that professionals should be acquiring? To investigate this aspect, I am researching how many online job postings come out over the course of a week asking for language proficiency across three different business specialties (Accounting, Management and Marketing). My project will answer the following questions: How often do job openings require bilingualism within the sample? Which states have a higher demand for bilingual candidates? And which languages are the most sought after?

The Impact Of Real Interest Rate On Real Exchange Rate: Empirical Evidence From Japan, Tomiwa Shodipe 2018 Eastern Illinois University

The Impact Of Real Interest Rate On Real Exchange Rate: Empirical Evidence From Japan, Tomiwa Shodipe

2018 Awards for Excellence in Student Research and Creative Activity – Documents

Abstract

This paper examines the impact of real interest rate on the real exchange rate in Japan using Two Stage Least Square econometric techniques. The two instruments used are money supply and gross domestic product growth rates. The result provides support for the theoretical and empirical evidences of positive relationship between real interest rate and real exchange rate in Japan. The estimation also shows that there is positive relation between trade and Japanese Yen over the period considered in the study. In light of these findings, the study suggests the adoption of fiscal macroeconomic policy instruments that are capable of ...


The Macroeconomics Of Dollarization : A Cross-Country Examination Of The Effects Of Dollarization In Ecuador And El Salvador, Lia Anastasia Kopar 2018 Elizabethtown College

The Macroeconomics Of Dollarization : A Cross-Country Examination Of The Effects Of Dollarization In Ecuador And El Salvador, Lia Anastasia Kopar

Business: Student Scholarship & Creative Works

This paper seeks to compare and contrast the effects of official dollarization on three broad macroeconomic variables: interest rates, inflation and GDP growth, in Ecuador and El Salvador. The paper will facilitate a better understanding of how the same alternative to monetary policy was expected to change the macroeconomic situation in two different countries with distinct pre-dollarization circumstances by analyzing the context in which the decision to dollarize was made, what happened before and after each country implemented the USD as official currency, and evaluating dollarization’s macroeconomic costs and benefits so as to provide a prescription for countries considering ...

Shaping Our World For A Better Tomorrow: Sustainable Investing, Esg, And Industry Insight, Anna M. Ballate

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Sustainable investing is a relatively new field in the world of finance and banking. Even though there is tremendous growth in sustainable investments over the past few years, it is still a niche market that requires more transparency, standards, and incentives. Switzerland has become one of the leading countries for sustainable finance, exhibiting a growth in sustainable investments under management. Despite the vast amount of research and development on sustainable investing, there is still much confusion and negative perception in the professional banking world about the topic. This study is designed to fill the gap between the academic rhetoric behind ...

Healthcare: An Industry Unlike Any Other Goes Global, Lilac Nachum 2018 CUNY Bernard M Baruch College

Healthcare: An Industry Unlike Any Other Goes Global, Lilac Nachum

Publications and Research

The healthcare industry has been transformed in recent years from what was traditionally an entirely domestic industry into one that has now become a global industry increasingly defined by market-oriented principles. Against the forces that have driven the globalization of the industry others are arrayed that have resisted globalization and anchored the industry in national systems of healthcare delivery and consumption. This interplay between the global and the local is emerging as a predominant feature of the industry that is shaping its contemporary dynamics and will likely have significant consequences in the years to come. In this paper, I seek ...

Zea E-Books

The basic production of the digital economy is knowledge. As it becomes more important, traditional factors like labor and capital become less so. As technological innovation changes the nature of employment, the conversion of labor to consumption becomes increasingly difficult. E-commerce is the most important driving force of the digital economy. Using technology and information networks effectively allows brands or companies to effect rapid changes in competitive markets. The emergence of neo-consumers calls for a higher order of information exchange and interaction. Companies must reasses their complete business processes in a holistic way to ensure market prominence in an economy ...


To What Extent Would Operational Restructuring Through Connecting Market Participants Streamline The Informal Recycling Industry In Urban India?, Peter W. Hjemdahl, Svanika Balasubramanian 2018 University of Pennsylvania

To What Extent Would Operational Restructuring Through Connecting Market Participants Streamline The Informal Recycling Industry In Urban India?, Peter W. Hjemdahl, Svanika Balasubramanian

Joseph Wharton Scholars

As the economies of developing countries grow, the waste production in these nations also increases proportionally. However, local governments are constrained by both the lack of adequate funds and a lack of skilled human capital, and are thus unable to build necessary waste management infrastructure. The majority of waste produced in these urban centres end up untreated in landfills, proving to be a social and environmental danger. A small portion of this refuse is handled by a vibrant informal recycling industry that is unable to scale given myriad inefficiencies. We propose the implementation of a tech-enabled marketplace platform to consolidate ...


An Investigation Into Best Practices And Lessons Learnt With Respect To China's Crackdown On Corruption, Dominic Kwok 2018 University of Pennsylvania

An Investigation Into Best Practices And Lessons Learnt With Respect To China's Crackdown On Corruption, Dominic Kwok

Joseph Wharton Scholars

Corruption is a well-documented problem in China, as well as many other developed and undeveloped countries across the world. The problem is particularly pronounced in countries that have undergone rapid economic transformation, allowing large amounts of wealth to fall into the hands of a select few individuals. Although corruption has been researched extensively, what is less covered are potential solutions that the country, and others looking to carry out similar reform, could use to combat corruption most effectively. As China has transitioned from a planned economy to a market economy, and the economy has become more powerful than ever, corruption ...

Venezuela Public Health Issue, Luke Vargas

Global Public Health

While every country around the world faces a form of public health issues, the issues that the country of Venezuela faces are different. Their public health problem is not a disease that can be solved by science, or a cure. It’s a problem that can only be solved by the people within the county itself. The country of Venezuela now lacks the proper medical supplies needed to help cure diseases and normal vaccinations, and the only ones to blame is their government. Because their government has now refused to pay their debts to the surrounding countries they have now ...
