Exchange Rate Misalignment and Capital Flight from Botswana: A Cointegration Approach with
The literature suggests that overvaluation of the RER was the cause of capital flight in Latin America (Cuddington 1986). Consequently, this study aims to identify the impact of exchange rate misalignment on capital flight from Botswana as an effort to promote FDI inflows, economic diversification and sustainable growth.
The KFi variable is better than the VKF because it allows tracking the dynamics of capital flight from the Botswana economy. Therefore, this study uses an ARDL bounds testing procedure to examine the REER mismatch and capital flight from Botswana (Equations (1), (8) and (9)).
The null of the first hypothesis (H1) proposed that the overvaluation of the Botswana pula increases capital flight in the long run. The results of the ARDL bounds test show that there is a long-run equilibrium relationship between capital flight and its factors.

The Impact of Corporate Diversiﬁcation and Financial Structure on Firm Performance: Evidence from South
Review of Literature
The literature suggests that diversification is important and can increase the financial performance of firms. Proper management of financial decisions (investments, financing, working capital and dividend policy) is essential for the financial performance of companies (Butt et al. 2010).
Methodology 1. Data
We handle the unobserved heterogeneity by using a fixed effect or by taking the first or second difference. The ability of the first or second difference to remove the unobserved heterogeneity is developed for two-stage dynamic panel data models.

Determinants and Impacts of Financial Literacy in Cambodia and Viet Nam
Lusardi and Mitchell (2014) provide an extensive review of the literature on factors associated with financial literacy. In their study, Hastings et al. (2013, p. 359) argue that the evidence for the effectiveness of financial education programs is in financial literacy. Many newspapers try to link measures of financial literacy with other economic and financial behavior, going back to Bernheim in the US.
Data and Methodology 1. Data Collection
In this article we follow the methodology in OECD/INFE(2015a) to calculate scores for the different indicators of financial literacy and financial inclusion. Table 1 shows the mean values of the financial literacy and financial inclusion scores in Cambodia and Vietnam, including breakdowns by different categories. The financial literacy scores are only 11.8 and 12.5 in Cambodia and Vietnam respectively, out of a total possible score of 21.
An increase of one standard deviation in the financial literacy score is associated with a greater likelihood of saving by about 7 percentage points in Cambodia and 10 percentage points in Vietnam. A one standard deviation increase in the financial literacy score reduces the likelihood of not saving by 12.4 percentage points in Cambodia and 16.8 percentage points in Vietnam. Table 8 shows our estimation results for the relationship between financial literacy and financial inclusion in Cambodia (columns 1-3) and Vietnam (columns 4-6).
The evaluation results show an increase in the magnitude of the effect of the financial literacy assessment on the decision to save. As shown in Table A7, the financial literacy score still has a statistically significant effect on financial inclusion. While the effect of the financial literacy assessment is on narrowly defined saving behavior (i.e. whether respondents have any formal savings product).
Exchange Rate Volatility and Disaggregated Manufacturing Exports: Evidence from an
Overview of Vietnam’s Exports and Exchange Rate
This section provides a background to give an overview of how the exchange rate market works in Vietnam, as well as the state of manufacturing exports in Vietnam during the period 2000-2015. In Vietnam, the exchange rate market is controlled by the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV). Figure 1 shows the annual values of Vietnam's manufacturing exports, and the line depicts the trend in the VND/USD exchange rate from 2000 to 2015.
Empirical studies have examined the relationship between exchange rate volatility and exports using aggregate trade data. This suggests that the impact of exchange rate volatility on exports should be tested on a case-by-case basis; therefore, studies on this issue are always valuable. The first is the standard deviation of the percentage change in the exchange rate (Chit 2008; Hayakawa and Kimura 2009).
The second measure of volatility is the moving average standard deviation (MASD) of the real exchange rate in logarithmic terms (Chit et al. 2010; De Vita and Abbott 2004). As such, we tend to use these 10 manufacturing export subsectors because of the data collection. To convert monthly volatility into annual data, we averaged the volatility of the year in question.
Empirical Results 1. Volatility Measurement
This section presents the estimation results concerning the effects of exchange rate volatility on manufacturing exports for the entire sample and in three regions: Asia, Europe and the Americas. GDP and real bilateral exchange rate are positively related in estimation for the whole sample and Asia. The long-run effects of exchange rate volatility in each subsector for the entire sample and in the three regions are presented in Tables 8 and 9, respectively.

Using Unconventional Wisdom to Re-Assess and Rebuild the BRICS
Materials and Methods
To begin our approach to conventional wisdom, we need to define what it is. Trillions of dollars and millions of lost jobs due to greed and miscalculated risks in the developed world have given way to the rise of the BRICS countries and their emerging multinationals. 2008: China becomes an important market for Ford, surpassing the US as the world's largest market for all automakers in 2010 to become their largest foreign market.
For example, it should be noted that China developed rapidly when Europe was experiencing turmoil in the Middle Ages after the fall of the Roman Empire. In the eighth century only a quarter of China's population lived south of the Yangtze; in the thirteenth, more than three quarters.

Contagion Risks in Emerging Stock Markets
New Evidence from Asia and Latin America
- Review of Studies
- Data and Descriptive Statistics
- Empirical Findings
Contagion from the US stock market to emerging stock markets (consisting of Asian and Latin American markets) is also tested in the period of the US subprime crisis of 2007. In the Mexican 'Tequila' crisis, we find no contagion from the Mexican stock market to Asian emerging stock markets. The sample consists of eight emerging equity markets in Asia (Indonesia, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand), and six markets in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela) and the US equity market.
Assessment of Upstream Petroleum Fiscal Regimes in Myanmar
Theoretical Framework: Concept of Economic Rent
Economic rent is defined as “the true value of a natural resource, which is the difference between the revenue generated by the extraction of the resource and the cost of extraction” (Dickson 1999; Nakhle 2007). Most IOCs use cash flow models based on the concept of economic rent to evaluate petroleum resource projects. In addition, oil and gas resources can naturally maximize a country's economic rent through oil fiscal regimes.
Its attractiveness has a great impact on the feasibility of the project and the IOC project. It supports the concept that "differences in fiscal regimes between contract types can be ignored when assessing the attractiveness of fiscal terms" (Luo and Yan 2010). However, it does not take into account the impact of different time sequences on the attractiveness of fiscal terms.
Quantitative Analysis for the Assessment of Upstream Petroleum Fiscal Regimes 1. Method
In the cash flow simulation, the equations will differ in terms of the contractual policy used in different countries. Also attached are simulations of US, Canadian, Australian, and Mozambique cash flows obtained using these equations. Additionally, the key fiscal parameters for the USA, Canada, Australia and Mozambique for the calculation of the concessionary system are presented in Supplementary Material 9.
The combination level of fiscal components in the PSC system is more attractive than that of the concessional system. First, royalties and taxes influence the attractiveness of tax regimes when evaluating petroleum resource development projects, with or without taking into account the time value of money, especially for countries with a concessionary policy. Third, cost recovery19 influences the attractiveness of tax regimes when evaluating projects without taking into account the time value of money.
Incorporating Credit Quality in Bank Efﬁciency Measurements: A Directional Distance
For the (second) stage of loan financing - where the bank's risk-taking behavior can be manifested in the accumulation of bad loans - the average efficiency score was 85%, which is much lower than the efficiency score of the first stage. This study modeled banking operations as consisting of two stylized phases—the deposit mobilization phase and the loan financing phase—and separately assessed technical efficiency in each phase.

A Test of Market Efﬁciency When Short Selling Is Prohibited: A Case of the Dhaka Stock Exchange
Data and Methodology 1. Data
Since no single broad index exists for the entire sample period, we rely on two of the more popular indices. The Dhaka Stock Exchange directory provided daily stock quotes and data for the Dhaka stock. Since Visa was only a component of the index for part of the time, we exclude it from the analysis.
