The results show that firms reserve more cash when their exposure to COVID-19 increases. We also find a cash burn effect during the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning that the cash holdings are drained when f...

This paper investigates the impacts of political corruption and carbon risk on corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) disclosure. As there has not been a law to enforce ESG disclosure in the United States, ESG disclosure remains on a voluntary basis regardless of the growing attention from market participants and society. Using a sam...
Article
This study explores how climate policy uncertainty (CPU) affects research and development (R&D) investment of heavy emitter firms in the United States during 2000–2019. Our empirical evidence indicates that while CPU exerts a positive impact on R&D investment of general firms, it seems to be a completely different story for heavy emitter firms. Aft...

Article
This paper investigates the impacts of four distinct types of political connection on financial reporting quality (FRQ) using a unique sample of Malaysian listed firms during 2002–2016. Using a battery of regression techniques, we show that political connections associate with lower FRQ only in firms connected to the government through government‐l...
Article
This paper investigates the relationship between economic policy uncertainty (EPU) and corporate intellectual capital (IC) investment. The empirical results, which are based on a wide range of econometric tests, demonstrate a negative impact of EPU on IC investment, thus lending support to the notion that EPU hinders corporate IC investment. The an...

Purpose This paper investigates how different types of corporate political connection, including government-linked investment (GLI), former officials as politically-connected directors (PCD), cronyism (CRO) and government leaders' family ties (FAM), influence financial distress risk in Malaysian firms.

Economic policy uncertainty (EPU) is positively associated with corporate diversification in China between 2001 and 2007. EPU's positive impact on diversification is significant only for large and medium cap firms. High EPU is associated with higher diversification; the effect of EPU on diversification by state-owned enterprises (SOEs) is greater t...

Article
Investigating the impact of economic policy uncertainty (EPU) on banks’ business activities using a large sample of U.S. banks during 2000-2017, we find that banks are more likely to diversify their income stream into new activities generating non-interest income amid high EPU. The results indicate that EPU on CPI and bank M&A has no impact on bank...

Question (1)
Question
I am employing GMM estimator to analyse a dynamic relation between two economic factors in a panel data setting. We know that GMM estimators usually required large N, small T (T>2), and generally work well for large samples.
However, the question is: how large is the minimum size of sample for GMM regression? I already read a handful of materials and discussed with my colleagues but still have not come to a conclusion.
Any suggestion or reference is very much appreciated.
Thanks.
