    ABSTRACT: This study examines the link between the role of people's participation and institutional structure of panchayat body in ensuring good governance and improving service delivery system. All the gram (village) panchayats of Purulia, one of the backward district of West Bengal are considered. Four composite indices-service delivery index (SDI), Participation Index (PI), Institutional Index (II), combination of many indicators, have been constructed. The other dimensions of governance having influence on the service delivery are incorporated in the model as a qualitative variable. Analysis shows that II and qualitative variables have no significant impact on SDI. This calls for reviewing and revisiting our existing public policy.

    ABSTRACT: The colonial and post-colonial periods mark a watershed in the history of labour force among tribal population in India. Using a case study of Jharkhand, this paper aims at analysing the evolved labour market and examining the structure of labour market along with the conditions of work during colonial period. It also attempts to comprehend whether the evolution of labour market for the tribals can be explained by the theory of ‘natural selection’ of efficient or incentive-compatible responses of the industry. Two major industries were selected for analysis, viz., tea plantation and coal mining, where, the proportion of Jharkhand tribes employed during the colonial period was high. The paper discusses the demand side of tribals’ participation in the labour market. A major factor behind employment of tribals in the industries developed during the colonial period was the demand for cheap unskilled labourers in these industries and which eventually decreased with the development of industries.

    ABSTRACT: This study analyzes not only the linkages that exist among the BRIC countries, but also those between the BRIC markets and major developed markets (USA, UK and Japan). The study looks at closing stock prices, from January 1997 to June 2010, using Unit roots, Granger causality, cointegration and Error correction mechanism. The results of the study are somewhat mixed, the evidence indicates that the BRIC economies move partially with the markets of other developed countries and also among themselves. The lack of strong links among BRIC markets and between their counterparts in developed economies presents an opportunity for portfolio diversification.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper estimates the extent of disparity in earnings across location, caste, religious and English language ability groups. Using IHDS-2005 data, gross private returns to education are estimated by applying Heckman selection model. Results confirm that returns to education increase with level of education across various groups. Both gross (and net) returns to elementary education are low across different groups, indicating low quality of basic schooling. Returns to higher education vary ranging from -29.10 per cent (-26.9 per cent net returns) among the Dalit-Adivasi workers with the highest returns of 38.2 per cent (34.08 per cent net returns) among fluent English ability group. This is in contrast to Duraisamy (2002) reporting the highest returns to secondary education between 1983 and 1993-1994. In a decade's time, with transformations in the economy and in labour market, higher education especially with English language ability brings in highest returns. Discrimination of caste and minorities influencing earnings is dominant in urban than in rural areas

    ABSTRACT: "A safe haven can be broadly defined as an asset allowing the preservation of wealth during periods of financial turmoil. This can be characterized by looking their negative correlations with risky assets specifically during crises. This paper employs a dynamic conditional correlation GARCH (DCC-GARCH) model proposed by Engel (2002) to test the safe haven property of the gold against stock market in India during the recent financial crisis periods. For the purpose we utilize 3001 daily observations (after adjusting for the dates and missing observations due to holidays) on gold price and BSE SENSEX index closing price for the period from 1st January 1998 to 30th September 2009. The empirical evidence is consistent with the study by Baur and Lucey (2010) that the gold is a safe haven and hedge in extreme stock market conditions."

    ABSTRACT: In the context of globalization and development, and in particular the complex interactions between them, the Pacific Island Countries (PICs), once considered remote and untouched by sophisticated financial sector instruments, are now deeply affected by the second and third waves of the world-wide recession following the financial and banking crises in the industrialized countries. Consequent decline in economic activities in the advanced countries caused a general slow-down in all PICs. With the exception of Papua New Guinea, the PICs have narrow resource bases and limited export earning capabilities. Further, they are heavily dependent on imports ranging from food and fuel to machinery and manufactured goods. Global economic downturn has resulted in decrease in tourism earnings and inward remittances, which are the main sources of foreign exchange earnings. Thus, the economic crisis has brought into sharp focus the topic of macroeconomic interdependence of PICs for further examination, as part of regional economic integration. This paper deals with six major countries in the South Pacific region, viz., Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu. Adopting a vector autoregressive (VAR) methodology, the study shows that there is strong evidence of country-specific shock affecting the variability of outputs in all PICs in the short-run. In the long run, it is found that the global output shock represented by the USA output shock is the most important shock followed by regional shocks. However, the quick and early recovery of Australia has re-established the case of regional economic integration with Australia and New Zealand. This has been the goal of Pacific Plan endorsed by the inter-governmental organization consisting of PICs, and Australia and New Zealand.
