Human Capital Formation And Economic Development In Pakistan: An Empirical Analysis, Muhammad Irfan Chani, Mahboob Ul Hassan, Muhammad Shahid

Muhammad Irfan Chani

This study investigates the casual relationship between economic development and formation of human capital in Pakistan. Based on endogenous growth theory, this study empirically tests the standard growth model consisting of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita as a dependent variable and human capital formation, investment in physical capital and labor force as independent variables. Autoregressive distributive lag (ARDL) bound testing approach to cointegration is used to check the long-run equilibrium relationship between the variables included in the model. For checking the causal relationship between economic development and human capital formation, pair-wise Granger causality test is used for time series ...

Managerial Turnover In The English Premier League And The Subsequent Results, Jarrod Connally

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

Efficient productivity often relies upon the matching of managerial skills and the resources available for production. Often, poor production outcomes can be attributed to those not directly involved in the production: the managers.

This paper will attempt to determine the performance effects of changing a club’s manager in soccer’s English Premier ...

ARDL bound test approach to cointegration is used to analyze the long-run relationship of the variables by using the data for the period from 1980 to 2009. The empirical results show that there exists a long-run as well as short-run relationship between fertility and urbanization, female labour force participation and female education in Pakistan. The analysis indicates there is a negative relationship between all 3 determinants with fertility. Female education and urbanization ...

La Demostración Jurídica Y Económica: Similitudes Interdisciplinarias Entre Hipótesis, Causas, Efectos Y Normas. La Norma Económica., José Manuel Martin Coronado

José-Manuel Martin Coronado

Hace unos días leí una entrada de blog de un joven abogado de una conocida universidad y (aparentemente) funcionario público, la cual trataba de una aparente metodología para la resolución de casos. Dado el especial interés del autor por el tema metodológico, bastante ausente entre los profesionales del derecho, creí conveniente felicitar su iniciativa. No obstante, también había un elemento de crítica, el relativo a la metodología bastante antigua y poco práctica en términos modernos (actualización, adaptabilidad, amparo informático, etc.). 1.2. Al parecer la crítica fue interpretada como algo más fuerte que la felicitación, aun cuando reitero, el citado ...
