The process of globalisation has its own dynamics and several serious flaws that have resulted in significant economic, political and social imbalances in the global political economy. Peace Science: Theory and Cases examines the implications of these imbalances for achieving lasting global peace. The poorer regions of the current global system are beset with serious non-mutuality of interests, rivalry and potential conflicts over scarce resources, fragile environment, alternative energy sources and due to declining agricultural productivity and food shortages, contracting markets and owing to bifurcations in and social beliefs, mores and norms while the list of flaws goes on ad infinitum. The global system will need huge collective efforts and mediation from all branches of modern knowledge in overcoming the above problems for a sizeable section of the global population. Peace Science: Theory and Cases offers original research to understand the problems and prospects of global peace in the context of the above dichotomy of the global system
Can there be a wave-like association between economic growth and inequality? : theory and lessons for East Asia from the Middle East by Partha Gangopadhyay( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High income growth in many countries in East Asia and the Middle East has been accompanied by increasing income inequality and widening gaps between rich and poor, and urban and rural. It is therefore it is important to examine the interrelationships between inequality and economic growth. This paper develops a simple model to establish that the change in income growth rate is a non-linear function of the income growth if policy makers try to influence economic growth. As a result, inequality and growth bear a non-linear relationship: for low values of inequality, economic growth rate is an inverted U-shaped \function of inequality. This function becomes U-shaped for values of inequality beyond a critical value of inequality. As a result, the relationship between growth and inequality can take the form of a wave. This simple theoretical model is a sufficient case to explain why previous empirical studies might have failed to reach a consensus between economic growth and inequality. The paper estimates the model empirically by using a set of panel data for ten Middle Eastern countries. The empirical analysis finds statistical support for a possible wave like relationship between growth and inequality, which can bear ominous messages for using equitable growth in fighting poverty. Rapid growing developing economies need to adopt appropriate policies for achieving an optimal mix of inequality and growth. Promoting inclusive growth together with good governance is crucial to ensure more equity and social stability. -- growth ; inequality ; poverty ; East Asia and the Middle East

Roles of social conformity in deviance in poverty : a study on working poverty and educational investment in Bangladesh by Biswanath Bhattacharyay( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades the Indian subcontinent has displayed remarkable invariance in the incidence of working poverty despite strong economic performance. It is widely held that education can rescue households from various types of poverty traps created by information problems and incorrect expectations. Yet very little is known about the motivation of the working poor in acquiring education. From a field study conducted in Bangladesh, this paper provides invaluable insights for the first time, to our best understanding, into the factors that shape the decision of a poor household to care about and respond to educational decisions of others in oneś community. Based on the "Choice-Theoretic Framework of Rational Emulation and Deviance", this paper empirically explains why some households choose to copy others, while some choose deviance even though social deviance in acquiring education can throw subjects into abject poverty. In particular, the paper examines the determinants of the (individual) educational expenditure of a household sheltering the working poor

The economic integration of the Arab world : the reality and potential by Mohamed Elafif( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last century the world economy has encountered deep and rapid changes. Over the years these changes have internationally regionally and locally been transforming our global economic and social systems. These changes are in political and economic spheres. Since the last few years of the previous century a new phenomenon in international economic relations has been on the rise which aims to increase free international trade and eliminate trade barriers and restrictions between countries. In addition, joint efforts are afoot to increase the economic cooperation among nations in all possible ways. Towards this end, since World War II several international organizations have been established, such as the International Monetary Fund, Arab Monetary Fund, Arab League and the Arab Organization of Investment Guarantee. These organizations are involved, directly or indirectly, to promote and grow international trade by a gradual decrease of trade barriers. They have achieved significant improvements in the field of international trade, investment and economic growth

Is there a nonlinear relationship between economic growth and inequality? theory and lessons from ASEAN, People Republic of China and India by Partha Gangopadhyay( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In view of rising inequality in fast growing Asian developing countries, it is important to study the relationship between economic growth and income inequity. We develop a simple model to establish that economic growth and inequality can bear a complex and non-linear relationship if policy makers try to impact on one (say, inequality) by influencing the other (economic growth). Our findings for the Associations of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), People Republic of China and India (ACI) economies are two-fold: first, we observed that for low values of economic growth, inequality and growth bear an inverted U-shaped function. This function becomes U-shaped for values of economic growth lying between two critical values. As a result, the relationship between growth and inequality can take the form of a wave. Secondly, we examine the issue of the existence of threshold effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the relationship between growth and inequality by applying the standard methodology of endogenous sample splitting. We confirm that the relationship between growth and inequality in ACI economies is significantly influenced by a single threshold in FDI: for FDIi>ô, economic growth and inequality can have an inverse relationship while for FDIi<ô this relationship becomes direct. We also note various other interesting elements in the relationship between growth and inequality which has profound policy implications for the ACI Economies

The wealth effects of accelerated stock repurchases( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>- The wealth effect of accelerated stock repurchase (ASR) documented by previous studies is not as large as the authors would have expected. The authors believe that there are potentially important sampling problems in the previous studies, which make the results less reliable. Identifying a number of factors that can possibly affect the announcement-period returns, the purpose of this paper is to reexamine the wealth effect of ASRs.</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>- The paper identifies a number of factors that can possibly affect the announcement-period returns to ASRs which include: whether an ASR announcement in the press is the initiation date or the completion date of the ASR; the size of the ASR program; whether an ASR is part of an open market repurchase (OMR) program; the frequency of ASR announcements by a firm; whether other corporate news is announced simultaneously with an ASR. The paper partitions the ASR sample into three groups, and then examines the wealth effect of these groups.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>- The empirical results show that the market reacts differently to the announcement of ASR in these three groups. The three-day announcement-period CAR (<italic>t</italic>=−1, +1) is 3.59 percent for the high-wealth-effect group, 2.01 percent for the medium-wealth-effect group, and 1.48 percent for the low-wealth-effect group. The paper also identifies the size of the ASR program, whether the ASR is announced simultaneously with an OMR or not, and the frequency of ASR announcements are the most important determinants of the announcement-period abnormal returns.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>- These findings suggest that the weaker wealth effects of ASRs that have been documented in previous studies are due to sampling related issues.</sec>
