TL;DR: This article investigated whether value created by business groups depends upon sharing, combining, and exchanging unique and specific resources or assets among affiliated firms, and found that technological capabilities contribute to create relational rents in terms of affiliated firms' investment in R&D and human capital.
Abstract: This research attempts to extend the discussion of business groups in emerging economies by treating business groups as a form of interorganizational network that generates relational rents among affiliated firms by creating technological and managerial capabilities. Based on the relational view, this research investigates whether value created by business groups depends upon sharing, combining, and exchanging unique and specific resources or assets among affiliated firms. Results show that technological capabilities contribute to create relational rents in terms of affiliated firms’ investment in R&D and human capital. Managerial capabilities also contributed to generating relational rents through investment in managerial knowledge acquisition for affiliated firms without R&D units and in training for affiliated firms with R&D units. However, learning by exporting and learning from imported input do not yield relational rents within business groups. Overall, these findings reveal that business groups as interorganizational networks are contingent on their internal, unique, and specific capabilities, as social capital theory argues.

TL;DR: The empirical estimates of this study reject the EKC hypothesis throughout the quantile levels, while the green taxation shows a negative sign which indicated government fiscal policies are reducing carbon emission in the upper quantiles.
Abstract: This study attempts to investigate the environment cleanness between the total factor productivity, natural resources and green taxation on Malaysia's clean environment. Using the environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis, this study employs the bootstrap quantile estimates based on the annual data series covering the period of 1970-2018 to analyse the quantile effect factors affecting environment cleanness in Malaysia. The empirical estimates of this study reject the EKC hypothesis throughout the quantile levels, while the green taxation shows a negative sign which indicated government fiscal policies are reducing carbon emission in the upper quantiles. There is also homogeneity slope equality effect between total factor of productivity and green taxation on carbon emissions in the middle and upper quantile levels, while natural resources are indication heterogeneity effect on all quantile levels. From the policy point of view, if Malaysia wants to get environment cleanness, there is a need for comprehensive policies of total factor of productivity with environment innovation-friendly and technological improvement in all major economic sectors of the country.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors designed mobile learning as a tool in learning Mandarin and provided solutions to assist students in mastering the sentences forming in Mandarin through mobile learning, and evaluated the evaluation of Chinese learning outcomes to 31 sophomore students, the biggest obstacle of students is to compose a sentence based on vocabularies learned.
Abstract: China emerges as one of the multi-polar powers of a successful third world country to emulate America and Japan in industry and trade. Indonesia, as one of the trade partners of China, should increase the quality and quantity of cooperation with China. In supporting the goal, it requires an ample of human resources ability that is active in socialization, diplomacy, and cooperation establishment with China. The cooperation can be established by mastering of Mandarin. The Department of International Relations realized the situation and complemented its students with foreign language skill such as Mandarin. Based on the evaluation of Chinese learning outcomes to 31 sophomore students, the biggest obstacle of students is to compose a sentence based on vocabularies learned. Researchers designed mobile learning as a tool in learning Mandarin. Therefore, this research offers solutions to assist students in mastering the sentences forming in Mandarin through mobile learning.

TL;DR: A survey of 509 millennial employees in the Indonesian startup digital industry was conducted in this article, and the results showed that employee's work well-being had a significant, positive effect on job performance.
Abstract: Article history: Received: October 15 2019 Received in revised format: October 28 2019 Accepted: November 3, 2019 Available online: November 5, 2019 In the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution, competition in acquiring and retaining best talents in concert with talents’ unfamiliarity of what they will face and obtain in the course of working at a company are two major problems. It is essential for a company to make its employees satisfied and pleased with their jobs. These very satisfaction and pleasure are hoped to serve as a key for motivating employees to perform and contribute their best for the company. Numerous research studies have proven the positive effect of work well-being on job performance, but the findings came with inconsistencies and controversies. This fact has caused reluctance in a good many companies to invest in their employees’ work well-being. A survey of 509 millennial employees in the Indonesian startup digital industry was conducted in this research. The results show that employee’s work well-being had a significant, positive effect on job performance. Theoretically, this research has contributed in responding to inconsistencies in literature. It is hoped that this research will also offer practical contribution to individual employees as well as human resources department and increase company executives’ confidence in making organization-related strategic decisions to attain sustainable performance. Finally, we propose a number of intervention suggestions for performance improvement through work well-being. © 2020 by the authors; licensee Growing Science, Canada

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors analyzed financial liberalization, political stability, and economic determinants of Kenya's real economic growth using time series data over the period of 1970-2016.
Abstract: This study aimed to analyse financial liberalisation, political stability, and economic determinants of Kenya’s real economic growth using time series data over the period of 1970–2016. The authors specified quadratic and interactive models to be estimated by employing a quantile regression analysis. The traditional and quantile unit root test was used in testing the stationarity issue. The co-integration findings indicated that the capital account openness and financial development impede on real economic growth; and the political stability also had potential influence on the real economic growth of Kenya. Interestingly, there is a nonlinear U-shape link between financial development and real economic growth that undermined the real economic growth at its onset, but as it advanced, it enhanced the growth of the country in the long run. The policymakers should ensure that the capital account is more liberalised so that it will continue to stimulate the financial development. In the same way, the liberalisation of the domestic financial market should be taken in earnest to overcome the negative effects of financial repression in totality, while maintaining the stable political atmosphere.

TL;DR: This article reviewed and synthesized recent research from strategy, finance, and economics on principal-principal conflicts with an emphasis on their institutional antecedents and organizational consequences, and provided a foundation upon which future research can continue to build.
Abstract: Instead of traditional principal–agent conflicts espoused in most research dealing with developed economies, principal–principal conflicts have been identified as a major concern of corporate governance in emerging economies. Principal–principal conflicts between controlling shareholders and minority shareholders result from concentrated ownership, extensive family ownership and control, business group structures, and weak legal protection of minority shareholders. Such principal–principal conflicts alter the dynamics of the corporate governance process and, in turn, require remedies different from those that deal with principal–agent conflicts. This article reviews and synthesizes recent research from strategy, finance, and economics on principal–principal conflicts with an emphasis on their institutional antecedents and organizational consequences. The resulting integration provides a foundation upon which future research can continue to build.
