Economic voting in the Philippines

Online veröffentlicht: 09 Dec 2021
Seitenbereich: 1 - 12

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The article wanted to find out if elections in the Philippines are economically motivated. Using 2019 gubernatorial election results, a logit model with inflation rate, unemployment rate, provincial revenue, and poverty incidence for the economic variables and party affiliation with the President and membership in a political family as the political variables was tested to explain the probability of an incumbent governor to be re-elected. The marginal effects tell us that a change in the unemployment rate decreases the predicted probability of a governor being reelected but interestingly, a change in the poverty incidence rates has the opposite effect.

Remote working challenges for Georgian social enterprises in the context of the current pandemic

Online veröffentlicht: 09 Dec 2021
Seitenbereich: 39 - 53

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The lockdown regulations aiming at avoiding the spread of the new coronavirus COVID-19 have caused disruptions in organizations of all types or sizes. In order to survive and remain competitive, enterprises have moved online. In line with the dramatic changes around the globe triggered by the regulations as a part of preventive measures, social enterprises switched to working from home. As a result, entrepreneurs have to learn new digital skills to capture the potential of digitalization as it is considered to have an ability to accelerate economic recovery after the pandemic. Yet digitalization influences organizational processes and operations and requires changes in strategies. In light of these transformations, researching social enterprises from different angles is of particular importance when economies are facing the threat of recession, as social entrepreneurship addresses market failure and can tackle social problems. Social entrepreneurs can find innovative solutions to modern challenges and help society and economies to transform. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate the feasibility of remote working and digitalization in social enterprises. The paper outlines remote working concerns in social enterprises in the Republic of Georgia and analyses flextime opportunities for enterprise employees. The empirical study is based on a qualitative research approach. In-depth interviews were conducted with the seventeen Georgian social entrepreneurs to explore the research questions. The paper contributes to understanding remote working in social enterprises and offers suggestions for future study directions in this under-researched area.

Profitability Analysis of Small and Medium Scale Salt Enterprises, Misamis Oriental, Philippines

Online veröffentlicht: 09 Dec 2021
Seitenbereich: 69 - 85

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The study analyzed the profitability of small and medium scale salt enterprises in Alubijid and El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines. It determined salt production practices; assessed the profitability of salt production; and identified the problems encountered in salt production. Forty-two salt producers in the area were personally interviewed using a pre-tested interview schedule. Descriptive and cost and returns analysis, rate of return on investment (ROI), and ANOVA were employed. Results revealed that the production practices of the salt producers are dictated by the flooring materials of salt beds and the type and volume of salt produced were highly dependent on the flooring materials and on weather. It was concluded that salt production is a profitable enterprise and the salt beds with transparent polyethylene plastic as flooring material were the most profitable, despite having the most labor-intensive production process. Recommendations include usage of transparent polyethylene plastic as flooring material and teaching appropriate technology for seawater filtration to address the problem on degraded quality of seawater with the local government unit (LGU) taking the lead. Also, a soft loan program be put up for buying flooring materials so that more members of the lakeshore community can engage in the salt making.

Ta’ awun behavior, work stress, worklife balance in Islamic perspective and employee performance : investigation in Indonesia

Online veröffentlicht: 09 Dec 2021
Seitenbereich: 86 - 100

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Ta’ awun behavior is very rarely being studied in business research especially when associated with employee performance. This study examines and analyzes the partial effect of: (1) ta’ awun behavior on employee performance, work stress, and work-life balance in Islamic perspective (WLBIP), (2) work stress and WLBIP on employee performance and (3) the mediating role of work stress and WLBIP in the relationship between ta’ awun behavior on employee performance. Data is collected through distributing questionnaires to employees of financial services companies in the Special Region of Yogyakarta with purposive manner. The statistical technique uses Partial Least Square. The results prove that ta’ awun behavior is partially able to make a positive contribution to the employees performance and WLBIP. Ta’ awun behavior also reduces work stress. Employee work stress reduces employee performance and WLBIP improves employee performance. Work stress is able to mediate ta’ awun behavior on employee performance, but WLBIP is not able to mediate it. This study implies that the research model can be applied to employees of business companies, which so far have focused on social and community institutions.

Factors Affecting the Level of Firm’s Ability to Create Value Relative to Capital Invested and Financial Distress Probability

Online veröffentlicht: 09 Dec 2021
Seitenbereich: 101 - 114

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The level of firms’s ability to create value relative to invested capital (LACVIC) is proxied by Price to Book Value Ratio. Price to Book Ratio is also a proxy of firm value. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of growth, profitability, size and assets tangibility on the level of firm’s ability to create value with probability of financial distress as an intervening variable. This study was conducted on public companies in Indonesia during the periods of 2013 – 2017. The panel data were analyzed by using Partial Least Square. Results indicate that assets tangibility has positive and significant effect on financial distress probability. Financial distress probability has no significant effect on LACVIC. Profitability, firm size, and assets tangibility have significant effects LACVIC directly, but they have no significant effect on it trough financial distress probability. It is indicating that financial distress probability does not act as an intervening variable. The implication is that companies should not have much assets tangibility because it can increase financial distress probability and decrease LACVIC
