Abstract:
The impacts remittances and trade balance has on growth in West Africa sub-region was examine for the period 2007 to 2019. To this end, based on relevant theory a model was drawn. However, prior to estimation, reliability and validity of the data set was examined. This was followed by unit root test which shows that all variables attained stationarity at their first difference while Cointegration test indicated that there exists a long-run convergence among the variables. System Generalised Method of Moment estimation revealed that remittances inflows significantly and positively impact economic growth while trade balance exerted a negative and significant impact on economic growth. The over-identifying restrictions test of J-Statistics revealed that the instrument of measurement employed was valid. It was recommended among others that policy makers in West Africa should implement policies that continually encourage remittances inflow to the sub-region while ensuring that trade deficits emanates from productive investment.

Abstract:
This study explored the sector-wise effect of firm life cycle stage on dividend payout of listed non-financial firms in three selected Sub-Saharan African countries that include; South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya. The study utilized longitudinal and causal research designs. Four hundred and seventy-nine (479) non-financial companies in eleven (11) sub-sectors listed on Nigerian, Johannesburg, and Nairobi Stock Exchanges make up the population. However, the Utility sector was removed from the final analysis because the sample size for this subsector was not enough to carry out the system GMM analysis. Thus, analysis was done for ten (10) subsectors. Two hundred and thirty-nine (239) quoted non-financial firms in ten (10) sub-sectors were chosen and data were collected for the period 2007 to 2017. The dynamic panel data regression technique (system generalized method of moments) was used for the data analysis. The outcomes of the empirical analysis revealed that the earned/contributed capital mix exerts a direct and significant effect on the payout of dividend in seven out of the 10 subsectors analyzed while firm age exerts an inverse and significant effect on the payout of dividend in six out of the 10 subsectors analyzed. The study concludes that the firm life cycle stage influences payout of the dividend of listed non-financial companies in the selected Sub-Saharan Africa countries. The study recommended among others that stock market regulators in the selected Sub-Sahara Africa countries should consider the life cycle stage of the firms and the earned/contributed capital mix should be used in measuring the maturity of firms, thus the payment of dividend by firms should be based on when its profitability and growth rate are expected to fall in future.

Abstract:
The level of online shopping in Indonesia has been increasing since its inception, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has caused a more significant increase.In addition to the quality of supporting applications, service quality in the form of timeliness in delivery and suitability of goods ordered by consumers are also important aspects that need to be considered by businesses that use the Electronic Commerce (E-commerce) platform. This study aims to examine the effect of system quality, information quality, and reliability on user satisfaction of Mobile Commerce (M-commerce), the effect of user satisfaction on the intention to use M-commerce continually, and the role of user experience in strengthening the relationship between user satisfaction and intention to use M-Commerce continually. We used 196 M-commerce consumers who conducted online shopping within three months (April-June 2020) as samples. Hypothesis was tested using PLS-SEM. The findings prove that customer satisfaction is not only determined by technological factors such as system quality, but also customer value, such as service accuracy in delivering products. Furthermore, this study has a practical contribution whether understanding individual behavior in M-commerce adoption can be an effective tool to help decision makers develop superior strategies to compete in the digital era and can be used to make policies.

Abstract:
This paper analyzes effect of economic and demographic factors on probability of overeducated workers in Southern Sumatra. Research using binary logistic regression model to estimate probability of overeducation workers. The data used came from the National Labor Force Survey (SAKERNAS) 2018. Unit of analysis is the workers in Southern Sumatra, including South Sumatra Province, Jambi, Bengkulu, Lampung and Bangka Belitung. Sample consisted of 13 683 workers. Estimation results show that income, sector or business field, age and area of residence affect probability of workers being overeducated. Income is the most dominant factor determining probability by providing a positive effect, but vice versa with age factor. Changes in area of residence from rural to urban areas give greater possibility of overeducation but this is not the case if there is a change in employment sector from primary to non-primary.The phenomenon of overeducation implies that workers can more easily adapt and understand their work so that productivity is more easily increased.The possibility of over-education mismatch in the regional labor market in South Sumatra is very unique because although the absorption of workers is still dominated by the primary sector, when there is a change of work to the primary sector, the possibility of overeducation actually decreases.

Abstract:
This study aims to empirically examine the relationship between role stress and supervisor support with burnout on local government internal auditors. Sampling was carried out by purposive sampling method with criteria in the form of local government internal auditors who had at least one year of audit experience. The results of an online survey on the auditors of the Regency/City Government Inspectorate in Southern Sumatera Province were obtained as many as 155 respondents who participated as samples of this study. The results of data analysis using SEM-PLS show that role conflict is not associated with emotional exhaustion and reduced personal accomplishment, but is positively associated with depersonalization. Role ambiguity is positively associated with emotional exhaustion and reduced personal accomplishments, but role ambiguity is negatively associated with depersonalization. Role overload is positively associated with emotional exhaustion and depersonalization but negatively associated with reduced personal accomplishment. Supervisor support is negatively associated with all burnout dimensions.

Abstract:
This paper attempted to estimate optimal size of public sector that prompts positive output growth in Nigeria based on Monte Carlo simulation of estimated parameters of an error correction model having controlled for regime effect. Our motivation derives from economic theory that absence of government could be injurious to output growth culminating in unavailability of contracts and public goods. Using different policy scenarios of public sector share in GDP, the study validates and supports the tenets of Rahn Curve that economy shrinks when government grows enormous as we found 40% public sector spending as proportion of GDP as optimal public sector size that stimulates positive growth rate of about 0.095% having controlled for regime effect. By implication, our original contribution in this study is amplified on our empirics that public sector role in Nigerian economy is less than or equal to 40%. Consequently, any size of public sector beyond forty percent is economically destructive as it capable of stimulating negative spill overs on the economy due to growing taxes and public debt repayment. Hence, public sector spending should be significantly less than forty percent or at most forty percent for purpose of economic growth. This indeed translates to enforcing responsible fiscal policy centred on forty percent public sector size.

Abstract:
Several empirical studies have shown that decision makers tend to experience an escalation of commitment bias, namely a tendency to continue investment projects that are less profitable, even though there is information of the less profitable project performance and that other available alternative investment opportunities are more profitable in the future. This study aims to improve the manager's decision making behavior model by considering the ethical environment as one of the factors that influence investment project evaluation decisions. More specifically, this study empirically examines the ethical environment as a strategy to reduce the tendency for escalation of commitment behavior. This study uses a laboratory experimental method with a 2 x 2 factorial experimental design between subject with adverse selection (present / absent) and ethical environment (strong / weak). The research sample consisted of 246 undergraduate and postgraduate students in Accounting and Management who acted as investment project managers. Based on ANOVA analysis results, it shows that managers who experience adverse selection conditions tend to continue unfavorable projects (conduct escalation of commitment). In addition, the results of this study also show that the tendency of managers to end investment projects that are not profitable for managers who are in a condition of a strong ethical environment will be greater when they experience adverse selection conditions compared to when they do not experience it.
