Drawing upon the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), we investigate how key factors such as interest rates, inflation, exchange rates, and economic events impact stock returns.</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>We examine the connections between these characteristics and stock market performance in two different markets using regression analysis and EMH as the theoretical framework. In order to find patterns and trends, we analyze data spanning a decade.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>Interest rates strongly affect Indonesian stocks due to their influence on investor sentiment. In Japan, trade agreements have a significant positive impact on stock returns. However, stock returns in both countries are weakly connected to inflation, currency rates, and other economic and political factors. The global economy remains a key external factor for both markets.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>This study has some restrictions, such as data limitations and EMH framework-related presumptions. In the future, research may focus on longer-term effects, behavioral aspects, and sector-specific analysis to further our comprehension of these intricate interactions.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This research advances our understanding of market behavior under various economic conditions by analyzing the interaction of macroeconomic variables and stock market dynamics in two distinct economies.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Determinants of Financing Decisions for Micro Enterprises in Malang City in 2022-2023 Moderated by Islamic Financial Literacy 2023-07-12T17:35:51+00:00 Fina Rosyada Azriel Rakaha Handoko Feri Dwi Riyanto Sri Andriani <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>This study aims to analyze the Determinants of Financing Decisions in Micro Enterprises in Malang City Moderated by Sharia Financial Literacy</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>This research uses a mix method with <em>purposive sampling techniques</em> and the number of samples isas many as 60 respondents of micro business actors. The data of this study uses primary data obtained directly from the source using interview techniques, questionnaires, literature studies. Logistic regression is used to analyze the data.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>This study revealed that variations in income and business age have a negative and significant effect on the variability of financing decisions. Meanwhile, guarantees have a positive and significant effect on the provision of financing decisions. Then, the variables of education, guarantees, and cultural characteristics do not affect the decision to provide financing. Vaiebel moderation itself is predicted to influence and strengthen the relationship between income variability and financing decisions. However, moderation variability has an influence and weakens the relationship between collateral variables and financing decisions.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>This research has limitations related to the amount of financing data conducted by Islamic banks</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This study seeks to examine cultural characteristics with financing decisions which has rarely conducted before.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Foreign Aid and Economic Growth: An Econometric Study of Afghanistan 2024-01-11T04:16:54+00:00 Sayed Kifayatullah Fazlly <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>This study aims to investigate the impact of foreign aid on economic growth in Afghanistan.</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>The study employs various econometric techniques, including time series analysis. Data for the study are sourced from the country economy and world development indicators of the World Bank, covering the period from 1980 to 2021. The analysis includes Augmented Dicky Fuller and Phillips Perron unit root tests, the ARDL model, the Breusch-Godfrey Serial Correlation LM Test, and the ARDL bounds test.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>The economic growth series is found to be level stationary, while the net official development assistance series is first difference stationary. Net official development assistance exhibits a significant positive short-run relationship with economic growth. No serial correlation is observed between net official development assistance and economic growth. Net official development assistance demonstrates a significant positive long-run relationship with economic growth.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>The study is based on data up to 2021, which may not capture recent developments or changes in the relationship between foreign aid and economic growth. The analysis relies on the accuracy and reliability of the data provided by the World Bank and other sources.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This study contributes empirical evidence on foreign aid's impact on economic growth in Afghanistan, using a range of econometric techniques. The findings highlight the importance of donor-friendly policies to increase development assistance to Afghanistan.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Comparison of Sharia Banking Performance in Malaysia and Indonesia According to Maqashid Sharia Perspectives 2023-11-14T04:00:46+00:00 Misbakhul Munir Marlina Ekawaty Asfi Manzilati <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>The research objective was to analyze the difference of sharia banking performance in Malaysia and Indonesia through measurement tool of maqashid index of MPEM and PMMS</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>This research used comparative study quantitative method and secondary data with observation period of 2014-2021.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>Based on the MPEM index of maqashid sharia, this research result referred that Indonesia was superior in the dimension of preserving religion, maintaining wealth, and continuing offspring. Based on PMMS maqashid sharia index, Malaysia was superior to Indonesia in all indicators consisting of educating individuals and upholding justice and welfare.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>The research objective was to analyze the difference of sharia banking performance in Malaysia and Indonesia through measurement tool of maqashid index of MPEM and PMMS period of 2014-2021</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>The countries in Southeast Asia region have applied this Dual Banking System including Indonesia and Malaysia. The use of different system applied in banking field should affect the difference of performance measurement. MPEM and PMMS were taken as alternatives of maqashid sharia-based banking performance measurement which was more proper if it was functioned to measure the performance of sharia banking.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Modelling the Okun’s Law in the midst of Structural Breaks: Evidence from Nigeria 2023-09-14T18:23:10+00:00 Martins Iyoboyi Abubakar Sabitu Samuel Felix Okereke <p>This objective of the study is to investigate the impact of economic growth on unemployment in Nigeria, with a view to uncovering the validity or otherwise of the Okun’s law. Both linear and non-linear specifications were considered, using quarterly data spanning 1991Q1 to 2019Q1. The study deploys a battery of cointegration techniques that account for structural breaks. The empirical result indicates that unemployment and growth are cointegrated. The estimated coefficients in both the linear and non-linear specifications show that growth is positively related to unemployment and that the impact of the latter on the former is not statistically significant. Thus, the growth experienced in the country under the period of investigation is not accompanied by reduced unemployment. Thus, whether it is the linear or the non-linear frameworks, the Okun’s law is invalid under the period of study in Nigeria. The study recommends that policies should be aimed at not merely growing the economy but deliberately targeted at sectors capable of absorbing many people such as agriculture, mining, construction and services sectors.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics The Role of Fiscal Policy in Reducing Gender Income Inequality 2023-07-15T16:26:02+00:00 Selly Galvani Rusan Nasrudin <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>This research aims to determine the role of fiscal policy in reducing gender income inequality in Indonesia.</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>This research used the microsimulation INDOMOD model, which is a static tax-benefit microsimulation model that has been underpinned by BPS Susenas 2019 data.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>The estimation results show that the most appropriate fiscal policy to reduce gender income inequality are through PKH and BPNT. Meanwhile, income taxes for upper income levels have almost no effect, and for lower income levels, although it can reduce gender income inequality, it will increase income inequality.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>This research has several limitations which can be explored for further research. First, due to the limitations of the data, the gender term used refers to the gender of the head of household, so it does not describe the actual gender condition of the individual. Second, the income tax is calculated based on the income data available in the income block in the Susenas, so that the value does not reflect the actual condition of the income and income tax paid by taxpayers. Third, the microsimulation method is static, so it cannot be used to analyze the dynamic changes that occur at the individual level.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>There are many studies on the relationship between fiscal policy and gender equality, but similar studies are still very limited in Indonesia. Moreover, the INDOMOD microsimulation model is rarely used in Indonesia, even though this method has been widely used in many countries.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics The Moderating Influence of External Environment on the Link Between Strategy Implementation Determinants and Public Health Facilities Service Delivery 2023-12-21T05:29:10+00:00 Momos Leonard <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>This study aims to investigate the moderating influence of the external environment on the relationship between strategy implementation determinants and service delivery in public health facilities in the Western Region of Kenya.</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>The study adopts a positivist approach and is anchored on the McKinsey 7-S Model Framework. It utilizes descriptive survey and explanatory research designs, targeting 966 respondents including top management leaders, medical personnel, and patients. Data is collected through structured questionnaires and interview schedules, and analyzed using SPSS.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>The external environment moderates the relationship between strategy implementation determinants and public health facilities service delivery in the Western Region of Kenya. Human resource capacity and organizational culture are key factors moderated by the external environment in affecting public health facilities service delivery.</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>The study's findings are specific to the Western Region of Kenya and may not be generalizable to other regions or countries. The study relies on self-reported data, which may be subject to response bias.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This study contributes to the understanding of how the external environment influences the relationship between strategy implementation determinants and service delivery in public health facilities. The findings suggest the importance of creating an enabling environment for effective strategy implementation in the public sector to improve service delivery.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Is Extreme Poverty in Indonesia is Going to End? 2024-03-01T00:39:32+00:00 Amdi Veri Darma Nayaka Artha Wicesa Axelllina Muara Setyanti Teguh Maulidi Rochmat <p><strong>Purpose</strong></p> <p>This research aims to analyze and project extreme poverty in Indonesia. Through the method of descriptive statistical analysis and cluster analysis, it is found that the rate of decreasing in the extreme poverty rate is higher than the rate of decreasing in non-extreme poverty</p> <p><strong>Design/methodology/approach</strong></p> <p>The methods used to answer research problems are descriptive statistical analysis, econometric forecasting model analysis, and cluster analysis.</p> <p><strong>Findings</strong></p> <p>It is found that the rate of decreasing in the extreme poverty rate is higher than the rate of decreasing in non-extreme poverty. In addition, through forecasting analysis it is also found that Indonesia will be able to reduce extreme poverty to 0.30% in 2024. However, the decreasing in extreme poverty to zero percent in 2024 will be realized if the acceleration of handling extreme poverty is carried out in an integrated way through the collaboration of two interventions of extreme poverty reduction program group, that are reducing expenses and increasing income</p> <p><strong>Research limitations/implications</strong></p> <p>This research is expected to be a positive reference for the Indonesian government in implementing extreme poverty reduction policies to zero percent in 2024.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value</strong></p> <p>This research addresses the President of Indonesia's goal of achieving zero percent extreme poverty by 2024, filling a gap in existing studies. Its significance lies in evaluating the feasibility of this ambitious target.</p> 2024-03-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Indonesian Applied Economics Livelihood Vulnerability Resilience Capacity of the Rural Economy in Nigeria’s Bauchi State 2023-10-01T06:50:40+00:00 Sanusi Mohammed Sadiq Invinder Paul Singh Muhammad Makarfi Ahmad M.
