The Threshold Foreign Direct Investment under Application of the Growth Identification and Facilitation Framework: case of Benin

Author: 

Kokou Wotodjo Tozo

Abstract

This paper aims to contribute to the first stage in applying the Growth Identification and Facilitation Framework (GIFF) of the New Structural Economics (NSE). The key point is to give additional proactive guidelines to developing governments in their effort to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) for enabling growth and structural transformation under GIFF application. To proceed, we explore the importance of an initial condition. We claim that FDI has direct effect on growth only if it reaches a certain share of a country’s GDP, it remains negative otherwise. We provide an empirical verification to our underlying hypothesis and find that FDI has positive impact on growth in Benin only if its share exceeds 2.062% of the country’s GDP. Our finding, therefore, gives Benin Government a more precise target on the amount of FDI in the beginning.

 Key words: FDI, GIFF, Threshold, sample split, bootstrapping, Cobb-Douglas, Benin.

Abstract

To assess the suitability classes of wastewater of three tobacco industries for irrigation purposes and their effects on germination and seedlings growth of three vegetables a lab experiment was conducted. The investigation was undertaken in the Agricultural Chemistry Laboratory, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, Bangladesh. Several variables such as pH, EC, TDS, Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, Cu2+, Mn2+, Fe3+, PO43-, HC03, SO42-, Cl, electrical conductivity, sodium adsorption ratio, kelly’s ratio, permeability index and hardness were computed. The wastewaters were found acidic and could be suitable for agricultural and aquatic uses. In respect of Ca2+, Fe3+, Mn2+, Cu2+, Cl and PO42- and other cations and anions content all the water samples under investigation was acceptable for continuous irrigation purposes and would not affect the soils. Based on sodium adsorption ratio, hardness, permeability index and kelly’s ratio, all water samples were suitable for irrigation purposes. In respect of K+ content the water samples were suitable as irrigation water for potassium demanding crops. Water samples under investigation were not suitable for irrigation in respect of sulphate ion. But if the concentration of sulphate ion can be reduced by any way then it will be suitable for sulfur demanding crop. In respect of magnesium all samples were not safely be used for irrigation. Twenty-five ml of collected wastewater showed higher performance in relation to germination rate, shoot length and root length in cucumber, radish and yard long bean.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to observe the effects of spirulina (Spirulina platensis) and riboflavin in hematological and biochemical parameters against arsenic toxicity in Long Evans rat. Sixty male rats were taken to perform the study. Experimental rats were divided into five equal groups. Each group consists of 12 rats. Animals of T0 group were given normal feed and water and kept as control. Rats of T1, were given arsenic trioxide @ 100 mg/L drinking water orally. Rats of group T2 were given arsenic trioxide @ 100 mg/L drinking water and with spirulina @ 1 gm/kg feed. Group T3 were given arsenic trioxide @ 100 mg/L with riboflavin @ 10mg /kg body weight. Group T4 were given arsenic trioxide and spirulina and riboflavin with same dose up to 45 days respectively. Four rats from each group (T0, T1, T2, T3 and T4) were sacrificed at 15 days interval to determine body weight, hematological and biochemical parameters. Result showed that in group T1, body weight gain was minimum, whereas in group T2, T3 and T4 the body weight gain in rats were better. Reduction of TEC, Hb values were significant (P<0.01) in T1 group. Whereas in rest groups reduction of TEC, Hb were less than arsenic treated groups. The values of SGOT and SGPT were significantly (P<0.01) decreased in all group but in it is more effective in combined group. In conclusion, spirulina and riboflavin has significant effect on hematological and biochemical parameters and increase body weight.

Abstract

An investigation was conducted at Agricultural Chemistry Laboratory, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur during November 2016 to April 2017 to study the response of four local freshwater fish species (Stinging catfish, Spotted snakehead, Climbing perch and Tangra) to the toxicity of a neurotoxic insecticide thiocarbamate Cartap (Suntap 50 SP). Results indicated that the limit of probit was increased with the increment of Cartap concentration and time of exposure for all the fish species. The lethal concentration (LC50) of Cartap was 2.94 ppm in Stinging catfish, 2.26 ppm in Spotted snakehead, 3.48 ppm in Climbing perch and 2.69 ppm in Tangra, respectively with the 95% confidence limit. The results reveal that the Cartap was more toxic to Spotted snakehead and less toxic to climbing perch as compared to the other two species. Water quality parameter such as pH, temperature, electrical conductivity and total dissolved solid of the experimental aquatic conditions were increased but the dissolved oxygen of that was reduced with the increment of Cartap concentration and exposure of time which also affected the fish behaviors negatively. Therefore, in field condition, if water level is 3 cm then the total amount of water 312500 litres is needed for 1 hector of land approximately and 800 ppm insecticide is dissolved in this field. Although its concentration is lower than exact dose it will be seriously hamper the aquatic organism.

In Search of Housing Bubble in Bangladesh

Author: 

Md. Abdullah Al Jamil, Kakoly Parvin & Md. Awlad Hossain

Abstract

Housing bubble, in the recent past, has shattered the US economy and rendered the global economies vulnerable. Though the tremor of the subsequent global recession did not strike the housing market in Bangladesh so vehemently, Bangladesh Bank in 2011 cautioned of the existence of a bubble in the country’s housing sector and an ensuing painful crash thereof. The fear is still not over as the supposed bubble did not burst yet. The present paper is meant to probe into the housing market of Bangladesh regarding the existence of bubbles. The paper tests hypotheses using the t-distribution at various significance levels. The data collected from a small sample (below 30) of housing companies in Dhaka city and finds that the price of housing grew significantly more relative to other products in the area. The study confines itself within the housing for the middle class; upper or lower class homes are out of its realm. It is anticipated that the findings will be functional to understand concerning the existence of housing bubble in the financial market of Bangladesh.

Abstract

The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of extracurricular activities (ECA) on academic performance of the students in Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University (HSTU) Dinajpur, Bangladesh. To define the effect more clearly we have disaggregated the extracurricular activities in to several parts such as sports activities, cultural activities, social work activities and political activities. A total of 270 students from nine faculties have been selected to collect data using stratified random sampling method. Students who have received at least two semester results have been considered for collection of valid information. Data were collected by face- to- face interview using a structured questionnaire .We used linear regression model and perform ordinary least square method (OLS) to estimate the regression coefficients. Findings of this study indicate that there is a negative but insignificant association between involvement in overall extracurricular activities and academic achievement. But when we separately estimates the models for different particular extracurricular activities we find that only the involvement in social activities has a significant negative impact on academic performance as measured by cumulative grade point average (CGPA) while other extracurricular activities like sports, cultural activities and political activities has no significant impact on CGPA of the student.

Abstract

This research work was conducted at animal laboratory in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University, Dinajpur for a period of 45 days . The experiment was undertaken to investigate the effect of wheat grass on hemato-biochemical parameters and body weight in rabbit. Twenty rabbits  age between 3-4 months  and weighing about 1200-1500 gm were acclimatized for 2 weeks and then randomly assigned into four groups (T0, T1, T2 and T3) and 5 rabbits in each group. Group T0 was kept for control group and chopped wheat grass supplementation was given to the group T1, T2 and T3 at the dose rate of 3 gm, 5 gm, 7 gm/kg body weight respectively for 45 days.  On  day 15, 30, 45 blood samples were collected and analyzed for hemoglobin, PCV, RBC, TLC, DLC, SGOT, SGPT and body weight from 0-45 days were calculated and statistically analysed. There was significant (P>0.05) increased in hemoglobin concentration, PCV, RBC, TLC, DLC count  in the group receiving wheat grass compare to control group and highest value was found in group T2 but statistically not significant (P<0.05). There was significant (P<0.05) decrease in ESR, SGPT, SGOT level in all  treated group compare to  control and lowest value was found in group T2 but statistically not significant (P<0.05). In this research wheat grass did not produce any significant (P<0.05)  effect on body weight of rabbit . The  results of this study reveals that oral administration of wheat grass @ 5 gm/kg body weight (Group T2) may be good for building blood, for adjuvant therapy in anemia treatment, immunostimulatory effect and health improving adjuvant in liver disorders.

Abstract

Musculoskeletal disorders are the most common causes of severe long-term pain and physical disability, affecting hundreds of millions of people around the world. Objective: The aim of the study was to determine the association between musculoskeletal disorders and computer use among the patients who attended a selected rehabilitation centre of Dhaka city Materials and method: It was a cross sectional study. Sample size was 128 and a pre-tested, modified, semi-structured questionnaire was used to collect the data. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 16.0.Results: Majority of the respondents (32.50 %) belonged to 41-55 year age group. Mean age was 36.7510.17 years. Most of the respondents were male (64.8 %). Study revealed that neck pain (39.1%) was the major complaint followed by back pain (17.2%). Regarding pattern of pain, continuous (32.0%) type was predominant (32.8%) graduate education groups used more (58.6%) the desktop and (59.4%) controlled computer by mouse, Majority of the respondents (40.6 %) belonged to 2-5 years regarding using computer, mean(± SD) was (6.45± 2.685) years. Most of the respondents (32.8%) used computers up to 3 hours. Near about 40 percents (39.1%) complained musculoskeletal disorders more than 1 hour of computer use.
