Microfinance institutions (MFIs) are instrumental in enabling the economic empowerment of women. We examine the efficiency and performance of 84 Indian MFIs from 2016 to 2018 using a two-stage double bootstrap approach. Our results show that MFIs with increased outreach and actively target female borrowers achieve higher efficiency. Furthermore, we...
Article
Purpose This study examines whether Internet penetration has a complementary effect on the relationship between financial access and new business formation in 57 developing economies from 2006 to 2018. Design/methodology/approach Using the generalised least squares estimator, the authors employ a framework that allows us to distinguish between the...
Article
Purpose This study examines whether unemployment affects the relationship between income inequality and food security in 143 advanced and developing economies from 2000 to 2019. The authors specifically explore whether unemployment can weaken the negative impact of income inequality on food security. Design/methodology/approach The authors estimat...
Article
This study examines whether institutional quality, education levels and trade openness affect the relationship between sectoral-and industrial-level foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows and economic growth. Previous studies highlight the heterogeneous effects of FDI at the sectoral-and industrial-level suggesting the need to examine the growth e...
Article
This study examines the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) and globalisation on economic growth in the (Association of SouthEast Asian) ASEAN economies from 1999 to 2019 using dynamic panel estimators. Previous literature has shown that ICT and globalisation can impact growth through the role of knowledge dissemination and i...

This study examines the nonlinear impact of banking sector development on economic growth in China's provinces from 1990 to 2017 using dynamic panel estimators. China has experienced rapid economic growth since its reforms; however, China has a repressed financial system as its banking sector reforms have lagged behind other reforms. Meanwhile, the...

Both tourism and the Internet affect growth directly and indirectly as it complements other sectors of the economy. However, the effect can differ depending on the development of the economy. This study...

Using a panel dataset of 10 ASEAN countries from 1980 to 2017, this study examines the productivity and efficiency of the ASEAN economies using a stochastic production frontier model. Furthermore, the para-metric model is decomposed using a generalise...
Article
China has consolidated its position in the world as the second largest economy. Four decades ago, China was one of the poorest economies prior to economic reforms. Yet, China’s reforms are unique as they were implemented gradually and experimental in nature, which contrasted the reforms in other transitioning economies. Understanding these directio...

However, economic growth is a complex phenomenon, as China’s provinces experienced regional disparity, where its coastal provinces grew faster compared to its underdeveloped interior provinces. Previous provincial-level growth studies in China do not account for s...
