Executive summary
Recent trends on borrowing and payment system for instance, in salary payment, debt payment, mortgage borrowing and payment as well as other loan services, more and more industries and institutions are dependent on banks more than ever before. This high dependability on banks is in fact making this banking industry highly competitive and concentrated as discussed below. As these industries take their time to analyze the merits and demerits of each bank in the industry and which is likely to benefit them more, the banks on the other hand strive to make their business attractive to those potential customers. What will result is onset of competition that will increase the innovativeness of the banks as each struggle to attract the highest number of industries in form of customers.
Attractiveness in Banking Investment
The recent years have seen a rise in large and well-established banks in developed economies. This has raised concerns on the effects such banks will have on the countries’ economy. Many economists are of the view that large banks may have a negative impact on a country’s economy as well as the borrowers. As such, there have been debates on whether or not large banks should be broken up into small banks that have less market power. Scholars from Vietnam and China advocated for the need to break up banks in order to reduce taxpayers and depositors’ risk and enhancing the bank’s leverages level. There are various benefits relating to breaking up banks. As such, China and Vietnam might be right in listening to the claims that large banks should be broken up. This paper will examine this claim in detail by examining whether Vietnam and China banking sector are in trouble or not. This is a fact that…...

...Revision of Manuscript # 17-02-88 Running head: ATTRACTIVENESS AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT Effects of Physical Attractiveness When Evaluating a Male Employee’s Allegation of Sexual Harassment by His Female Employer Karl L. Wuensch and Charles H. Moore East Carolina University Abstract College students (N = 324) served as mock jurors in a simulated civil case in which a male plaintiff accused a female defendant of sexual harassment. The physical attractiveness of the litigants was experimentally manipulated. Mock jurors were asked to decide whether the defendant was guilty or not and to rate their certainty of belief in the defendant's guilt. Jurors were more certain of the guilt of the defendant when the plaintiff was attractive than when he was unattractive. Plaintiff attractiveness significantly affected female jurors’ verdicts when the defendant was unattractive, but not when she was attractive. With male jurors, plaintiff attractiveness significantly affected their verdicts when the defendant was attractive, but not when she was unattractive. Female jurors were more likely than male jurors to conclude that sexual harassment did take place, but only when the litigants were different in attractiveness. Effects of Physical Attractiveness When Evaluating a Male Employee’s Allegation of Sexual Harassment by his Female Employer Physically attractive people are perceived in a more positive fashion than are the physically unattractive (Dion, Berscheid, &...

Islamic Banking in Western China

...Islamic Banking in Western China Group Paper 3 Group 4 November 6, 2014 Banking in some form has been around for thousands of years. It started small with loans of food or some other valuable product in local villages and has now evolved into the global industry we know today. There is a newer kind of banking that has seen a surge of acceptance from across the world, and that new kind of banking is known as Islamic banking. Islamic banking is a fairly new alternative to western banking, starting in the 1970’s. It is based on Shariah, the fundamental Islam religion. This is a socially responsible way to do banking and allows religion to guide decisions. Interest based transactions are not allowed because they violate Islamic law (Varriale, 2014). Instead, they share profits and losses with the lenders and borrowers of the banks. A few concepts, musharaka, murabaha, and mudaraba, are used in place of interest. Musharaka is when a borrower repays their loan through principal payments and a predetermined percentage of profits. Mudaraba is when a borrower agrees to pay the bank a handling fee if the investment is successful (R.J.C. and A.O.S., 2009). Murabaha is when the bank buys an asset for a customer and then sells it to them on a deferred basis, avoiding an interest-bearing loan. They also offer leasing agreements (R.J.C. and A.O.S., 2009). Islamic banking also requires tangible assets to back up the financial products. This is a much more conservative......

...COUNTRY REPORT OVER CHINA Name: Course: Institution: Introduction In 2014, China experienced one of the biggest anti-corruption campaigns in its 65-year history, regarding the battle's scale, term, and the breadth and the levels of the captured authorities' positions. This battle is seen to have a country wide negative effect on China's general consumption. The effects are so particularly felt on the luxury purchases and the government related purchases. Indeed, in the current political environment and with a continuous decrease of the land division, the nation is still ready to keep up the development of its GDP with a shocking number of 7.5% in 2014. On the other hand, numerous reports from the macroeconomic business and worldwide financial organizations, (for example, the World Bank) have since anticipated a slower economic development for the current year, 2015. This paper provides a report on China's macroeconomic condition, particularly the position in the international trade and the contemporary policies in 2015. Macroeconomic Development China predominantly imports raw materials and in turn it predominantly exports industrial products, both developed and developing countries. It reported a trade surplus of US$ 49.6b and US$ 25.6b in December 2013 and 2013 respectively. Throughout last year, exports rose by 9.7% to US$ 227.5b in December. Interestingly, shipments tumbled to Japan at -7.2%. Figure1. In the appendix represent the trend of China’s Balance of......

Introduction Developing economies consist of a very diverse sort of group that includes some of large economies enjoying high economic growth rates like that of China, INDIA AND Brazil and many small economies having low rates of economic growth. The countries having high GDP growth among group of developing nations have remained able to sustain the negative impacts of financial crises very well as these were not that much affected by consequences of financial crises. There are few small or middle income economies that are quite rigid in a way that these nations depend on specific factors for development (Kose, 2013). Keeping in view the GDP growth rates of group of countries in a globe it cannot be said that developing countries do not have room for business growth but that fact is these do not have competitive advantage that can match those of developed nations and that is the reason I agree with the statement that “The emergence of developed countries as major players in......

Banking Report supply in the market, it will decrease the bank rate and if RBI wants to reduce the liquidity and money supply in the system, it will increase the bank rate. The bank rate has lost its significance as a monetary policy tool as the central bank signals stance through changes in repo, the rate at which banks borrow short-term funds from RBI. The Bank Rate, which is the standard rate at which the RBI buys or re-discount bills of exchange or other commercial paper, is presently used Reserve requirement cash reserve ratio (CRR) Every commercial bank has to keep certain minimum cash reserves with RBI. Consequent upon amendment to sub-Section 42(1), the Reserve Bank, having regard to the needs of securing the monetary stability in the country, RBI can prescribe Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) for scheduled banks without any floor rate or ceiling rate. Before the enactment of this amendment, in terms of Section 42(1) of the RBI Act, the Reserve Bank could prescribe CRR for scheduled banks between 5% and 20% of total of their demand and time liabilities. RBI uses this tool to increase or decrease the reserve requirement depending on whether it wants to effect a decrease or an increase in the money supply. An increase in Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) will make it mandatory on the part of the banks to hold a large proportion of their deposits in the form of deposits with the RBI. This will reduce the size of their deposits and they will lend less. This will in turn decrease the money......

Country Report

...I. Demographics of Morocco Morocco, officially the Kingdom of Morocco, is situated on the northwestern corner of Africa. It is the 39th largest country in the world with a population of 34,377,611, as estimated on December 31st, 2015. In 2015, the natural growth was positive, and we could forecast that Morocco’s population growth will continue at around 1.05% annual rate, reaching about 36.4 million by 2020 (Worldometers, 2015). Morocco is a demographically young country with 27% of its population under the age of 15, 18% between the ages of 15 and 24, 42% between 25 and 54 years old, 7% between the ages of 55 and 64, and just 6% of its population over 65 years. This large share of young population provides great opportunities for Morocco to develop its emerging industries by using advanced technology and skills (World Population Review, 2015). While the rise of a new business has been happening in Morocco, the population living below the poverty line remains high at 12%. It means that four million out of Morocco's 33 million people live below the poverty line, and almost three million of them in rural areas. As Figure 1 shows, Morocco has the highest Gini Index, 40.9, among the North African countries. The household income of the poor people accounts for only 2.7% of the country’s wealth, while the rich people have 33.2% of the country’s wealth (Central Intelligence Agency, 2007). The distribution of wealth in Morocco is manifested through the obvious gap between the......

...promise our country made when joining the WTO. In the several round of the negotiations on the issue of China’s joining, almost all the negotiating parties, especially developed countries, put forward a relatively high demand on the openness of financial industry. In order to join the WTO, China had to make a promise to open up financial industry in a planed and steady way, and the Schedule of Specific Commitment in the documents appended thereto of the Agreement on Financial services is a measure of the degree of openness Because banking is the cornerstone of the financial industry, the degree of banking openness decides that of the financial industry in a large part.
