The outcome reveals that unemployment growth is positively sensitive to policy rates and money supply. Per capita income is negatively sensitive to police rate, which suggests that policies do not address structural weaknesses that influence rapid price variations. The study thus fails to reject the hypothesis that Central Banking policies may be accentuating unemployment and poverty in Nigeria. The paper recommends low policy rate possibly at the middle of single digit; an indexed-wage system; and stoppage of money supply through ways and means.</p> Patrick Omoruyi Eke Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Management Info Wed, 15 Jun 2022 07:38:01 -0400 Impact of foreign direct investment on economy, environment, technology, productivity and energy of the countries <p>In today's world, attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is one of the essential tasks of governments. But what effect will the absorption of Foreign Direct Investment have on that society? Based on the review of 18 articles, the researcher has categorized these effects into the following 5 factors. These factors belong to Economy, Environment, Technology, Productivity, and Energy. Following the results of previous studies, the impacts of the five factors mentioned on communities in the effect of FDI are reviewed. The Boolean search methodology is chosen as the methodology, also the finding of the researcher is mentioned in the paragraphs below. FDI not only aids in the development of this industry, but it also has a substantial impact on the micro and macro levels. FDI has a favorable impact on the growth rate of per capita GDP. In addition, the African continent saw significant economic expansion. The impact of financial systems may explain why developing-country correlations are low while developed-country saving-investment correlations are strong. the impact of GDP and energy usage on Carbon dioxide emissions are significant, whereas the impact of FDI on Carbon dioxide emissions is positive but minor. Industrial SO2 emissions will increase by 0.098 percent for every 1% growth in FDI capital stock. FDI rising emissions in middle-income countries in the near term while reduces them in high-income nations. FDI from TMH areas has a substantial beneficial influence on the productivity of the wood products industry at the industrial level. On energy consumption, FDI revealed a negative scale impact, a structural effect, and a positive technical impact. In the end, the impact of foreign direct investment on worker productivity is positive. The researcher recommends that politicians make every effort to improve their country's political and judicial conditions to attract more FDI to their countries.</p> Arian Amidi, Sanil S.

Before the Covid-19 crisis, economic inequalities were prevalent all across AMCs at domestic and regional levels and the majority of the population was confined to surviving on low and insecure incomes. The main objective of this study is to explore the economic and social effects among AMCs and how Covid-19 interacted with these effects. Our study indicates that stark and myriad economic inequalities persist among low-income and rural poor societies of high-income countries in the ASEAN ranging from wealth, access to healthcare and education services, gender-based inequalities, deprivation of basic resources and services, and asymmetry in employment and migration opportunities for certain groups. We predict that Covid-19 will exacerbate these inequalities consequently pushing marginalised and vulnerable people into extreme poverty and may further escalate health and economic risks. AMCs governments need to focus on developing an inclusive economic recovery process to strengthen the poorly protected social safety nets, address the gender-based issues and consider the inclusion of marginalised and vulnerable communities while developing health and economic recovery policies to mitigate Covid-19 impacts. Our findings provide a roadmap to the governments and policymakers scrambling for resources to combat the Covid-19 social and economic impacts.</p> Abdul Hadi bin Abdul Satar, Hakimah Yaacob Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Management Info Sun, 04 Sep 2022 02:37:53 -0400
