Abstract

­

The effects of industrial production, inflow remittance, and FDI on the rate of inflation is the title of the research. The case study is Liberia and the analysis was tested through the Johansen co-integration and the correction miscalculation/ error model (ECM) was instigated. And both tools were used to establish the long-run relationship between the research variables. The testing of various research parameters presumed that there exists a long-run interaction between inflow remittances, FDI, and Inflation but realized that industrial production and inflation have a negative response to each other (an increase in production decreases inflation and vice versa). The Liberian government can prioritize the improvement in industrial production in the manufacturing sector which will reduce the rate of inflation. Furthermore, FDI and inflow remittance can be monitor and encourage foreign investors to invest which will decrease unemployment and the inflow of new technologies in all sectors. When these suggestions are followed strategically, this could decrease the rate of inflation and help citizens improve their lives.

 Keywords: Industrial production, FDI, Inflow remittances, Inflation Co-integration, and Error Correction Model.

Abstract

­

This research aims to expound on how e-commerce has been affected during the age of Covid-19. Little is known regarding how the outbreak of covid-19 has impacted consumers’ online shopping behavior; hence the need for research upholding theoretical and practical considerations. The study also uncovers the underlying implications of e-commerce even after the pandemic. Moreover, the use of the internet is reflected in correlation to the current crisis and its impact on e-commerce. Through the use of different data sets, the frequency and the rate of adoption of online shopping are monitored very well. This study’s principal results suggest that online shopping behavior change depends on some factors such as connectivity through the internet, age, gender, education, and income. Perhaps, shopping online has changed drastically since the outbreak of Covid-19 in the year 2020 and that may persist beyond unforeseen future. The research is based on how Covid-19 has turned around consumers’ shopping behaviors and moved the market, shopping priorities, and consumer needs amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Through secondary sources that were found reliable and valid in answering the three research questions, the study comes up with enough research findings. This study, therefore, unfolds not only the effects Covid-19 has on online shopping behavior but also predicts the future of e-commerce after the pandemic.

The Nature of Industrial Structural Change and Economic Growth: A Decomposition Analysis Etana Ayeru Fekede

The Nature of Industrial Structural Change and Economic Growth: A Decomposition Analysis

Abstract

­

The concentration of the economy on the specific sector and lack of industrial structural change is the cause for the divergence of developing countries. Using data from the Asian KLEMS database for China and South Korea, we employed decomposition techniques to analyze the nature of structural transformation and industries’ contribution to growth. It is confirmed that both within-sector and between-sectors structural change contribute to the growth, but the modern economy does not follow the traditional linear structural transformation. Structural transformation through industrial upgrading, technological innovation, institutional and infrastructural development can stimulate dynamic and rapid economic growth. Therefore, the existence of structural transformation is another factor that affects economic performance, and hence income gaps. Since the rate of structural transformation is declining as the economy becomes advance, developing countries have the advantage of transforming their economy faster. They have the technological advantage of a latecomer. To undertake structural change and uphold sustainable development, diversification of the economy is required.
