Survey dataset on the level of sustainable consumption of Malaysian households from the perspective of income and consumption expenditure

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

Unsustainable consumption promotes discouraging patterns of consumption with negative impacts on society. It also contributes to inequalities and poverty. Unsustainable patterns of production and consumption undermine development goals in terms of inefficiency and overconsumption. This research explores the level of sustainable consumption of Malaysian households from the perspective of income and consumption expenditure. The analysis is based on cross-sectional data obtained from questionnaires distributed to 635 Malaysian households in eight districts in Terengganu (urban and rural areas) using stratified random sampling. The findings show that the level of sustainable consumption expenditure of Muslim households in Terengganu is still low. Achieving sustainable consumption patterns is more technically and politically complex than changing production patterns because

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

This study examined the effect of institutional support in managerial capacity building on marketing orientation and Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) growth. The study employed positivist research paradigm which necessitated the use of survey method. The study sample consisted of 147 participants across the Ghanaian SMEs sector. The study conterminously employed Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and Smart-Partial Least Square (PLS) to analyze the survey questionnaire data and test the research hypotheses. The study found that institutional support in managerial capacity building had positive and significant impact on SMEs comparative advantage and performance. The study further revealed that marketing orientation has significant on SMEs growth. On contrary, the study found that institutional support in managerial capacity building has insignificant effect on marketing orientation. These results imply that continue investment and support in managerial capacity building and marketing intelligence are required to enhance SMEs growth. We suggest replication of this study in other Sub-Sahara countries since this was limited to only Ghanaian SMEs.

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

This study aims to describe the implications of socio-economic change caused by tourism development and to explore the relationship between society and tourism from a sociological perspective. By using a qualitative approach with a case study research design, this study analyses data that was obtained through observation, documentation, and interviews. The participants involved were the local community living in Keciput village, the Keciput village staff members, the Tanjung Kelayang Beach tourism manager, and the Belitung Regency tourism office staff members. The study found that the tourism development of Keciput village had caused changes in the social and economic life of the local communities. In terms of social life, the emergence of tourism development had caused interactions to decrease. Previously, when the interactions among the people were still very intense, the economy of the community was also on the rise. However, ever since the tourism development took place, it has changed the people’s type of livelihood: where previously they had worked as fishermen, they are now working as transport services fishermen. The economic value of tourist activities is also classified into a higher category because the yield from the marine sources is very dependent on the season.

Identifying and prioritizing factors of the formation of investment strategy in the Ghana’s downstream oil and gas industry

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

We present a new model to identify and prioritize factors affecting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) investment intentions by integrating existing models. Structured questionnaire is used to sample respondents from the Ghanaian SMEs between 2017 and 2018. Data analyses have been conducted using variancebased Smart Partial Least Square (SmartPLS) technique. The major findings of the study are that macro environment factors, resource competitive strategies and oil and gas policy-specific factors are the significant determinants of SMEs investment intentions. Again, the study revealed that the resource competitive strategies significantly mediate the relationship between macro environment factors, industry force, oil and gas policy support and investment intentions. These results are robust and consistent with resource-based view, theory of constraint and theory of strategic positioning. Moreover, these results contribute new knowledge towards developing investment strategy for the downstream oil and gas industry. Besides, these findings have managerial implications needed by policy makers to renew commitment and provide the needed framework to investors to enhance indigenous participation in the industry.

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

This study examines the dynamic relationship between CO2 emissions, Islamic financial development and economic growth in Indonesia, using the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) approach over the period 2000-2018. Employing ARDL and ECM testing to examine the existence of long- and short-run relationships between the variables, we found that no EKC’s support existence in Indonesia. The study also found no dynamic short-run relationship between growth, Islamic finance development and CO2 emissions. The long-run findings suggest that CO2 emissions from transport; other sectors, excluding residential buildings and commercial and public services; and the residential buildings and commercial and public services sectors are significantly associated with Islamic finance development in Indonesia. Hence, the findings of the study show that the country may need to adjust its CO2 emissions and promote eco-friendly and energy-saving activities to protect nature through Islamic finance development Strength and cost-efficiency.based financial sector development, especially in improved loans for business, would be valuable to limit CO2 emissions

Do Industry Forces Affect Small and Medium Enterprise’s Investment in Downstream Oil and Gas Sector? Empirical Evidence from Ghana

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

There is the need to reexamine the nexus between industry forces and investment behavior due to mixed and ambiguous results in most previous studies. The purpose of this study is to investigate how the antecedents of industry forces affect investment behavior of Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ghana’s downstream oil and gas sector. The SMEs manager’s perceived benefits of oil and gas trade have also been examined. A cross sectional survey methodology has been used to collect data from 475 Ghanaian SMEs via structured questionnaire. Data have been analyzed using partial least square method. Using exploratory factor analysis and multiple regression analysis our results reveal that threat of entry, competitive rivalry, power of suppliers and power of buyers are related to SMEs investment behavior. We find insufficient empirical evidence to support the relationship between threat of substitutes and investment behavior. Our substantive evidence further show that SMEs managers/owners have high expectation from the oil and gas trade notably: High earnings, employment opportunities, improvement in infrastructure and service extension to Ghanaians. Our robust results are partially consistent with Porters’ five forces model. These results have important implication on oil and gas investment and industrial restructuring to facilitate SMEs participation in the sector.

SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISE’S INTERNAL RESOURCES AND INVESTMENT DECISIONS IN GHANA: THE RESOURCE-BASED APPROACH

Penulis Bayu Taufiq Possummah, Ph.D., MA.

We report new evidence on Small and Medium Enterprises’ (SMEs’) internal resources, i.e investment capital, business stability, customer size, type of ownership, legal status, industrial structure and location on investment decisions in the Ghanaian oil and gas sector between 2016 and 2017. Overall, we find that SMEs of larger business size, with large investment capital, large fixed assets, more business stability, structured business ownership, large customer size, registered status, operations in urban locations and reinvested annual profits -- are more likely to invest in Ghanaian oil and gas sector. Per contra, the results reveal that industrial structure has no influence on SMEs’ investment decisions. Additionally, our findings are most robust to SMEs that choose to invest in the oil and gas value chain which is consistent with the resource-based theory. This empirical study has been conducted through a survey. Data has been collected using a stratified sampling technique and structured questionnaires with 245 SMEs across diverse industries. The survey data has been analyzed using binominal logit regression and Chisquare test. The results are expected to be of substantial importance for investment decisions in the domestic business environment. We strongly recommend the replication of this study in other emerging oil and gas economies.
