The study aims to examine the economic effect of earnings per share and cash flow per share on dividend policy of non-financial firms listed on Pakistan Stock Exchange over the period 2009-2018. For this purpose, static and dynamic panel are used for empirical testing of the hypothesis. Fixed effect model is appropriate for static panel model while difference GMM is used for dynamic panel model. The results are conclusive in those econometric techniques and indicate that earning per share is a significant economic factor for dividend policy of firms. Firms with better earnings per share prefer to announce dividends, which creates the positive signals in the market. Moreover, cash flow per share also significantly positively affects the dividend payments. The results are conclusive across both measures but earnings have more explanatory power in dividend payment decisions. Overall, the result supports the signalling hypothesis and provides a great insight about dividend policy of firms. Firms can better go for dividend announcement decisions based upon their earnings and cash flows. In this way, they can create better signals in the market and consequently can increase the shareholders wealth. Pages 150 to 169

One of the current topical issues in the Gulf countries is the diversification of the economy and transformation to a knowledge-based economy. Therefore, this study investigates the current state of academic research on intellectual capital (IC). The articles reviewed are mainly those that have used a sample of companies in the Gulf countries. Based on the review, it is found that most of the topics discussed are on the relationships between IC and company performance and company value. However, scant attention has been devoted to factors affecting IC efficiency. In addition, several studies on IC, company performance and company value have used the static model to examine these relationships, thereby neglecting the dynamic relationship that may exist. Hence, this study suggests that in future, researchers should investigate these relationships using the aid of the dynamic model. Further, a longitudinal study may provide a clearer picture on how IC affects company performance and company value over time and the factors that contribute to IC efficiency. This is needed because presently, most of the studies have used a repetitive sample. In addition, the inclusion of members of the royal family on the board of directors may play an influential role in IC efficiency and as a moderator in the relationships between IC and company performance and company value. Such future studies can highlight more information on the state of IC in the Gulf region. Pages 269 to 283

This paper presents a study on advertisement management in local governments, which are entrusted with establishment of advertisement standards and regulations that would ensure industry’s compliance with the advertisement regulations. However, the lack of clear and detailed standards by the local governments has resulted in illegal and unlawful advertisement activities. Bahardin et al. (2019) developed a predictive model and performed a predictive analytics using Partial Least Squares (PLS) method for the relationship between advertisement standardization and industry’s compliance with advertisement regulations using a data set from Petaling Jaya City Council, a local government in Malaysia. In this paper, a robust version of PLS, i.e., (PLSc), that is resilient to undesired effects of outliers was proposed.  From the empirical analysis on the predictive model, it was shown that the robust method was able to reduce the influence of the outliers and produced more reliable results compared to its traditional counterpart, PLS.

Investigating Pension Choice Diversity within a Dynamic Institutional Environment of Public Sector Universities in Pakistan

In literature, the mixed empirical results about employees’ retirement choices for different pension systems make it difficult to conclude lucidly. This is because the pension benefits represent a diverse pool of preferences and expectations based on complex socioeconomic, cultural and demographic factors. In Pakistan, a multitude of factors in addition to the aforementioned diversity severely threaten the sustainability of the current defined benefit pension system. This is particularly important in the public-sector institutions where the major root for the pension is pay-as-you-go. The current study addresses this issue by developing an important framework with the help of previous literature and interviews conducted with faculty members working in public universities of Pakistan. The study suggests a framework for harmonizing pensioners’ preferences and government policies towards a shift from defined benefit to a more sustainable pension plan. Using line-by-line analysis of interviews, this study also analyses the positive and negative dimensions of selecting different pension systems. For the themes identified, the study proposes a causal map to signal the relationship between concepts and result in a revised framework. The empirical findings are then synthesized with the previous literature and comprehensive policy suggestions are offered. Pages 339 to 361

The criminal acts of corruption in Indonesia continuously evolve in line with the rapid development of technology, industrialization and mankind civilization that enters various fields, including the global capital markets. The rules of administration, operations and criminal acts within capital markets are regulated by a special Law No. 8 Year 1995 on Capital Market (hereinafter, UUPM), but the law has not been able to reach out the practice of trading within the capital markets which hurts the state finances. What is the position of UUPM within the systematic principles (systematiche specialiteit)? How is the implementation of systematic specialty principles in corruption cases in the Indonesian Capital Markets? This study uses the approach of juridical normative, i.e. a research that is based on secondary data while the specification research used is descriptive analytical. The sources of data consist of material law as primary data and material laws as secondary data. The results show that UUPM has a strong position within the concept of systematische specialiteit as an administrative law, but it is reduced by Law No. 19 Year2019 on Corruption Eradication Commission. The implementation of criminal act of corruption within cases regulated by administrative penal law, such as those in Capital Market sectors must meet at least two requirements, namely: the illegal acts against UUPM as a means (modus) to benefit oneself or other people or corporations and there is a significant loss to the state finances.

Daniel E. Ufuaa*, Romanus, A. Osabohienb, David Imhonopic, Olusola J. Olujobid, Mercy.E. Ogbarie, a,b,c,d,eCovenant University, Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria, Email: a*daniufua@gmail.com

This study focuses on the practice of change management and operational resilience among Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria. The research adopts an empirical approach, relying on secondary data sourced from the 2014 enterprise survey of the World Bank and applied the logit regression analysis. Results showed that product development and experience are statistically significant and positively related to capacity utilisation. While political instability, spoilage (loss of product in transit, due to theft, breakage or spoilage) and financial constraint are negatively related to capacity utilisation.  This implies that the increased level of product development is capable of increasing capacity utilisation by approximately 0.4, 0.5 and 0.7 units, respectively.  In the same way, the manager's experience increase capacity utilisation by 0.44units, which conforms to the ‘a priori’ expectation, for managers to be resilient, the experience is highly required. Similarly, the results show that political instability is statistically significant and has negative (0.61, 0.69, 0.50, 0.80 and 0.65) impacts on capacity utilisation. Based on findings, the study recommends the need for further research to consider other approaches such as longitudinal research, comparative research to unearth learning about the factors that affect change management practice.  It is also suggested for further research to consider critical change management effects such as resistance and ethical balance in practice, especially in developing economy like Nigeria.

The warehouse receipt system policy is intended to fulfill the constitutional  rights of citizens (especially those based on agriculture in their livelihoods) for equal access to credit. The existence of this system provides an opportunity for residents who have limitations in providing collateral in the form of fixed assets that have been the basis of banking business confidence. This paper aims to identify and map problems, both at the design level and the implementation of the warehouse receipt system policy in Indonesia. This research uses the Socio-Legal Research method by critically analyzing all relevant regulations. The results showed, at the policy design stage, the pilot project that demonstrated its success was very different from the design at the statutory stage. The difference occurs both for commodity owners, commodity types, banks as creditors and warehouse managers involved in the project. Some obstacles were found at the policy implementation stage and the main obstacle was in warehouse management. This problem has a chain effect because the running of the WRS is largely determined by the management of the warehouse which directly influences the process of issuing warehouse receipts.

Respect for Voters' Traditional Voters: Reflections on Legal Recognition of the Ways of Voice Adaptation of Society through Consultation

Ariyantoa, aLPDP Awardee, A Law Student of The Doctoral Program at the Faculty of Law, Diponegoro University Semarang and Lecturer at Faculty of Law, Universitas Yapis Papua, Email: aariyanto_tosepu@gmail.com

The main problem in implementing state democracy is when dealing with the traditional democratic system of voters of indigenous peoples using deliberations based on the principle of collectivism. At the present, The state has only used a democratic system that prioritizes individual freedom in expressing voting rights in politics. Meanwhile, the traditional voter democratic system seems neglected in the country's democratic system. The emergence of problems in understanding the democratic way of traditional voters is caused by the state's lack of respect and recognition of the democratic system that was born from the nation's culture into state law. Whereas the state as a stakeholder must ensure that there is no obstacle for traditional voters to implement a democratic system based on their cultural reality. Democracy through traditional culture is more ideal if it is empowered into the national legal system rather than using the Western democratic order, it can actually trigger the disappearance of a democratic system of cultural order that has existed for a long time in the life of the nation's communal society. At least, to respect the citizens of the country's traditional voters, they can provide legal recognition in order to save the indigenous democratic system, amid a shift in a more modern democratic system. This is done in order to provide access for traditional voters to express their political voice according to social realities that they understand using consensus. Already, it is an important part of the state's responsibility to put the democratic system ahead of the nation's reality compared to establishing a democratic system that adopts from a Western country. Therefore, the state is obliged to respect the culture of the traditional electoral democratic system of indigenous peoples by recognizing it in state law in order to avoid conditions where an increasingly globalized nation degrades the democratic system from traditional voters.

The research aims to analyze and measure the impact of the government revenue shock in Iraq on the components of the monetary basis for the Central Bank of Iraq for the period 2004-2019.                                                    These revenues are linked to international variables, such as global    demand, political and security conditions, and competition between producing countries. The Iraqi economy depends on oil revenues to finance what may reach 90% of budget spending. The results of the joint integration model showed that there is a relationship between government revenues and the monetary basis, which confirms that there is an impact of government revenues on the monetary basis in Iraq. The government should work to increase its types of income because this will reduce the dependency of the monetary basis on public revenues and increase  the ability of the central bank to control the money supply.

The Iraqi constitution in force in 2005 does not permit any provisions related to the foreigner's status in terms of rights, but it can be inferred by analogy with the concept of violation. The foreign artist does not enjoy any political rights as the right to nominate, elect and vote. Restricting the right to work to Iraqis only - constitutionally - observing the rules of social justice, even though he can exercise this right in accordance with the new and effective labor law for the year 2015. The state guarantees social and health security for Iraqis in the event of old age, disease, disability etc. However, this guarantee can be covered by the foreign artist if there is an international agreement guaranteeing that. Also, free education and sports exercise are a right for every Iraqi. A foreign artist is obligated to respect the social system, to respect the legal, political, and economic system and to pay taxes and fees to the state. The foreign artist should adhere to the conditions of valid and lawful residence, otherwise his marriage will be considered invalid and no party may conclude this contract if the foreigner violates this restriction.

Zora Neale Hurston's Lost Individuality and Independence in Their Eyes were Watching God

Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937) recounts the events of Janie Crawford’s enslaved life that depends on a frame- tale as a technique. The onset of the novel is the same as its coda, where the same two characters appear in the same setting but two hours passed. This paper is a portrayal of desperation, inequality, abuse, and humiliation of the black people especially women in which some of the information is part of Hurston’s biography. Hurston skillfully introduces the issues of race and gender without turning to fury and resentment. Janie fights to discover her individuality and entity. All her life, Janie has been ordered and told to do what others want rather than been asked what she wants or feel. She left no stone unturned to find peace and tranquility, which make her sense her real humanity as an individual who is independent and not a replica of others. In the time of writing the novel, the proper way to treat women or show control especially on the black women was to assume responsibility or take the patriarchal role to those who are inferior. The relationship between women and men at that time was built on submission and obedience. There were two distinct ranks, the men who are superiors and women who are inferior, and the inferior has to serve the superior. The novel seems dedicated to Janie with her unintentional mistakes especially marriages attempting to explore her place in this vast world or identity to gain respect, recognition, and entity.
