Research Article of International Journal of Economics, Sociology and Education The Impact of China's Prohibition of Importing Solid Waste on the World Economy Based on Autoregressive Model Yishuai Tian1*, Qian Cao2, Siguang Zheng3, Boying Lv1 1College of Hydraulic & Environmental Engineering, China Three Gorges University, Yichang 443002, China. 2College of Foreign Languages, China Three Gorges University, Yichang, 443002, China. 3College of Electrical Engineering & New Energy, China Three Gorges University, Yichang, 443002, China.

India, Malaysia, the United States, and Japan were selected as countries affected by China’s ban on waste imports to replace the impact on the world. The GDP and CO2 emissions of various countries are used as indicators to measure the economy and the environment. By predicting the data that China has not implemented the ban on the collection of imported waste and comparing it with the data after the actual implementation, it was found that: after the promulgation of the policy, the environmental quality of the major importing countries declined and the economy increased. The economic impact of the significant solid waste exporting countries is not apparent, and environmental pollution increases slightly. Keywords: Time series; Solid waste; GDP; CO2; ...

Research Article of International Journal of Economics, Sociology and Education The role of corporate governance and ownership structure in the dividend smoothing behavior of Asian firms Shakeel Ahmed, Syed Zulfiqar Ali Shah, Arshad Ali Bhatti International Islamic University The study attempts to explore the determinants of dividend smoothing behavior of Asian firms during the period from 2009-2018. The study used firm’s specific characteristics, corporate governance and ownership structure variables as determinants of dividend smoothing in Asia due to their unique features from Western markets. Based on gender critical mass theory, the study finds the presence of gender critical mass is positive and significantly associated with firm dividend smoothing behavior; whereas, presence of fever women depicts negative or insignificant association with dividend smoothing behavior. In addition, study finds that firms with board interlock and larger in size don’t follow dividend smoothing. In contrast, the findings show that higher market to book value leads to firm’s dividend smoothing behavior. Importantly, the study also finds moderation role of gender diversity between family ownership and firm’s dividend smoothing behavior. Importantly, the study splits the sample into male and female CEO and findings show that the role of gender diversity is more pronounced in firms with male CEO. These results are consistent with the predictions of gender critical mass theory. Further, contrary to the agency theory based explanations of dividend smoothing, firms with family ownership smooth dividend more. These findings suggest that gender critical mass, family ownership and higher market to book value contribute positively in dividend smoothing behavior in Asian market.
