    This study aims to determine the contribution of Zakat to economic growth in South Sulawesi Province. The economy of South Sulawesi in the second quarter grew significantly by 7.66 percent, higher than the first quarter of 2021 which recorded a contraction of 0.21 percent.

    Understanding Malaysian State Governments Fiscal Behavior: The Role of Intergovernmental Transfers

    Get PDF
    As of late, several state governments in Malaysia have been identified as having serious difficulty in meeting their financial needs, to the extent of the government being qualified as on the verge of bankruptcy. One of the explanations put forward is that state governments have been acting irresponsibly in managing finances. Thus, the question that ensues is: why do state governments behave in such irresponsible manner fiscally and financially in the first place? In this paper, we relate the financial difficulties faced by these governments within the confines of the institutional and political environment currently in place within the country. We will examine one of the institutional features of the intergovernmental system in Malaysia – the intergovernmental grants systems. More precisely, there are two hypotheses that will be tested in this research.. First, federal transfers may stimulate more spending by state governments which leads them to increase spending beyond the means available to them. Second, financial problems may be the consequence of a state governments’ incapacity to utilize tax capacities to the fullest, which in turn may be explained by the disincentives effects that are embedded (whether intended or not) within the transfer system.State Governments, Fiscal Behavior, Intergovernmental Relations

    Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui perbedaan hasil belajar, sikap ilmiah, serta interaksi model inkuiri dan GI peserta didik kelas V pada mata pelajaran IPA SDN 37 Cakranegara tahun pelajaran 2019/2020. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode kuantitatif eksperimen, jenis Quasi Eksperimental Design tipe Non Equivalent Control Group Design. Populasi dalam penelitian ini adalah siswa kelas V SDN 37 Cakranegara sebanyak 47 siswa  yang terbagi menjadi dua kelas yakni kelas A dan B. Tehnik sampling yang digunakan adalah tehnik sampling jenuh yaitu tehnik penentuan sampel yang dimana semua anggota populasi digunakan sebagai sampel. Pengumpulan data dilakukan dengan menggunakan metode tes dan non tes. Data yang diperoleh kemudian dianalisis dengan menggunakan aplikasi SPSS untuk mengetahui adakah perbedaan model inkuiri dan GI terhadap hasil belajar IPA. Berdasarkan hasil post-test diperoleh nilai rata-rata hasil belajar IPA siswa pada kelas inkuiri  (51,78) dan kelas GI (62,81). Hasil perhitungan SPSS diperoleh nilai sig. 0,001 < 0,005 untuk hasil belajar yang dapat dikatakan signifikan, selanjutnya sig. 0,199 > 0,005 pada sikap ilmiah yang menunjukkan bahwa tidak ada perbedaan yang signifikan antara sikap ilmiah terhadap hasil belajar, dan sig. 0,687 > 0,05 untuk interaksi yang dapat disimpulkan bahwa tidak ada interaksi antara model pembelajaran dan sikap ilmiah terhadap hasil belajar peserta didik kelas V mata pelajaran IPA SDN 37 Cakranegara Tahun pelajaran 2019/202

    Fixed investment, household consumption, and economic growth : a structural vector error correction model (SVECM) study of Malaysia

    Get PDF
    This paper examines the dynamic linkages between economic growth, fixed investment, and household consumption in Malaysia by using a structural vector error correction model (SVECM) approach. The empirical results revealed that household consumption and fixed investment are only significantly influenced output growth in the short run. This finding tends to support the alternative view of growth hypothesis, namely fixed investment-led growth, and household consumption-led growth in the short run. In the long run, there is no significant effect of fixed investment and household consumption on growth. However, in the long run, there is a permanent effect of economic growth on household consumption and investment. This empirical finding signals that a demand side policy (for example, fiscal and monetary policy) by affecting the household consumption and investment is ineffective to stimulate the economic growth in the long run
