It has posed long-lasting social, business, and environmental repercussions for us. Various governments are working to put in place the enormous size of stimulus packages and recovery plans to create income opportunities and economic growth. It is very important to evaluate the environmental impacts of stimulus packages and recovery plans for sustainable economic growth and build a resilient society. It will not drastically increase the cost of recovery but can provide a safer and sound future for us.</span></p> Salahudin Sandhu Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Economic Info Tue, 16 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Financial instruments disclosure: Do audit committee and audit quality matter? <p>This study was motivated by a dearth of empirical literature on the relationship between audit committee characteristics, audit quality and financial instruments disclosure of a developing country. From the Nigerian Stock Exchange, up to date records over the period of three years (that is, from 2016 to 2018) were sourced from the sample size of all the 20 commercial banks and selected 30 insurance companies. After considering the dual role of audit committee as monitors to shareholders wealth and advisors for transparent managerial action based on quality audit information, the empirical analysis which employs a generalised method of moment estimator (GMM) that account for endogeneity concerns (simultaneity, reverse causality and unobserved heterogeneity)indicate that, audit committee meeting frequency (log acm) and audit quality positively and significantly relates to financial instruments disclosure each at 5% level. This result indicates the incentivizing role of audit on the new regulation as it applies to financial institutions in Nigeria. Moreover, firm size (log fsize) is positively related to financial instruments disclosure at 5% level of significance. On the contrary, this study found no significant relationship existing amongst audit committee size and financial instruments disclosure and audit committee meeting frequency and financial instruments disclosure of financial institutions in Nigeria. The study’s implications in the Nigerian context have been discussed.</p> Adamu Garba Zango Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Economic Info Tue, 16 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0500 Analysis of the facts of urbanization with forecasting the trend of urban population in Bangladesh: An application of ARIMA method <p>There are some positive ramifications of urbanization, along these lines, which incorporate the employment opportunities, innovative and infrastructural progressions, enhanced transportation, and correspondence. The betterment of clinical services and educational facilities in urban areas increase the living standard. Urbanization has negative outcomes on wellbeing due essentially to contamination and packed everyday environments. The ARIMA methodology has been used to forecast urban populations (% of total) in Bangladesh up to 2030. ARIMA method considers time-series data from 1972 to 2019 to estimate the forecasting. The current study estimates an increasing trend of urban populations in Bangladesh over time. This study has contributed to creating awareness in the case of the changing urban population.</p> Alfarunnahar Ruma Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Economic Info Tue, 16 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0500 The effects of an entrepreneurial ecosystem on entrepreneurial intention <p>This research aims to examine the effects of an entrepreneurial ecosystem on entrepreneurial intention among engineering students. The researcher hypothesized the relationship between these three independent variables, such as entrepreneurial education, social and cultural, and financial growth with entrepreneurial intention. The data was collected using a questionnaire survey from 313 respondents selected from engineering faculties. The data were analysed using SPSS software. Multiple regression was calculated to predict the engineering students based on entrepreneurial education, social and cultural as well as financial growth. Results indicated that entrepreneurial education, social and cultural, and financial growth have a positive effect on entrepreneurial intention. Thus, it is required to enhance entrepreneurial education at the university level to enhance the entrepreneurship intention among the engineering students. Also, social and cultural elements have an impact on entrepreneurship intention of university students.</p> Nor Faiza Binti Adzman, Hamad Raza , Muhammad Imran Qureshi , Nohman Khan Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Economic Info Tue, 16 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0500
