The study tests the FDI spillover hypothesis in the Indian Pharmaceutical industry using an unbalanced panel data for a sample of firms over the period 1989-90 to 2000-01. The study estimates firm-specific productive efficiency growth for domestic firms from frontier production function and relates the same to a set of firm-specific attributes along with the variables of foreign presence. The study found that the presence of foreign firms per se may not be important for productivity growth of domestic firms unless it is complemented by the latter’s R&D activity or size.

The paper examines the influence of FDI on manufact ring growth of Singapore in a panel data sample of 14 manufacturing industries over 30 years stretching from 1975 to 2004.

Deficit Financing, Inflation, and Keynesian Economics
A few days ago I wrote about how nothing in this world is random.  Well, when you go to the store and prices continue to rise, college costs soar to new heights, and home prices bloat, none of that is random either.  There’s laws behind all of that.  There’s two main reasons behind inflation — the government spending printed money and the Federal Reserve with their system of fractional reserve banking and manipulation of interest rates, which creates a private cartel for the banking industry. Before I studied economics I used to wonder why every year people asked their employers to give them a raise.  Why?  ... market research, surveys and trends

Transformation is predicated on per capita income growth but development is also about progress in reduction of poverty and inequality, individual capabilities, access to social services, and quality of life. Both growth and development are also predicated on distributive politics of how a society is able to deal with vested interests and social conflicts. During past sixty years, growth spurts have occurred in most countries but generally outcomes have fallen short of expectations. Developed economies have ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Fairytale ends, reality bites
Whether it be Tony Abbott or Julia Gillard who wins the race to the Lodge, their economic policy directions in the coming 12 months will be critical. Whoever becomes the next leader will need to hit the ground running. Luckily there is help at hand, writes Lenore Taylor.
