The Effect of Globalisation on the Nigerian Economy

...On OKECHUKWU DIYOKE DIOKC81 | 1 INTRODUCTION An economy refers to the full network of distributers, producers and consumers of goods and services within local, regional or national communities. Globalization refers to the process of the increase in economic, political, social and ethnic relations across international boundaries. Globalization is aimed primarily at the constant theories that shape the political and socioeconomic development of nations across the globe. It looks at the continued increase in the collapse of trade barriers and increased world trade and integration; globalization can be seen as an extension that regularly restructures the way nations interact amongst themselves by breaking down their individual barriers in areas of culture, commerce, finance, communication, and several other fields of struggle. This on-going change can be seen from its thrust of legitimate governance, liberal democracy, gender equality, environmental stability, and free market economy among other aggregate values for people of the member states. Globalization creates a compelling inclination for the systematic development in the modern world today as a result of the problems it poses to the states in the form of challenges. This essay looks at the definition of globalisation, the concept of the process of globalization, and how it affects the Nigerian economy.

The Implications of Fuel Subsidy to Nigerian Economy

...Extra Credit Assignment – The Implications of Fuel Subsidy to Nigerian Economy Babandi Ibrahim Gumel Doctor of Business Administration California Southern University Mike Ewald, PhD November 2015 Introduction This paper would discuss the implications of fuel subsidy in the Nigerian economy. It is a position paper as an extra credit assignment for ECO 87501 for DBA course at California Southern University. The paper would review what subsidy is, the reason for subsidizing petroleum product in Nigeria, challenges the Nigerian economy is facing because of subsidizing petroleum products, and the crisis the country is facing because of subsidy. Analysis According to the dictionary of Investopedia, “subsidy is a benefit given by the government to groups or individuals usually in the form of a cash payment or tax reduction. The subsidy is given to remove some burden and is often considered to be in the interest of the public. Politics plays an important part in subsidization. In general, the left is more for having subsidized industries, while the right feels that industry should stand on its own without public funds” (Investopedia, 2015, p. 1). The above definition clearly indicates that the subsidy is a kind of free money in whatever form given to the public by Government. It is worth noting that the definition highlighted that politics plays a role in subsidy, and politicians on the left, (e.g. in U. S. the Democrats) favor subsidy. The Merriam-webmaster dictionary......

...6007/IJARBSS/v4-i8/1092 URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.6007/IJARBSS/v4-i8/1092 Abstract The study analyzed the impact of foreign direct investment on Nigeria economic growth over the period of 1999- 2013. The main type of data used in this study is secondary; sourced from various publications of Central Bank of Nigeria, such as; Statistical Bulletin, Annual Reports and Statement of Accounts. The regression analysis of the ordinary least square (OLS) is the estimation technique that is being employed in this study to determine the relationship between and impact of the Direct Foreign Investment on economic growth. The findings revealed that economic growth is directly related to inflow of foreign direct investment and it is also statistical significant at 5% level which implies that a good performance of the economy is a positive signal for inflow of foreign direct investment. This implies that foreign direct investment is an engine of economic growth. The paper recommended that government should liberalize the foreign sector in Nigeria so that all barriers to trade such as arbitrary tariffs; import and export duties and other levies should be reduced so as to encourage investors. Key words: Foreign Direct Investment, Economic Growth, OLS, CBN, Nigeria Introduction Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a direct investment into production or business in a country by an individual or company of another country, either by buying a company in the target country or by expanding......

...Ibrahim CLASS: SS 3A SUBJECT: Economics Topic: The Effect of subsidy in Nigeria Economy THE EFFECTS OF SUBSIDY IN NIGERIA ECONOMY. DEFINATION A subsidy is an assistance paid to a business or economic sector. Most subsidies are made by the government to producers or distributed as subventions in an industry to prevent the decline of that industry (e.g., as a result of continuous unprofitable operations) or an increase in the prices of its products or simply to encourage it to hire more labor (as in the case of a wage subsidy). Examples are subsidies to encourage the sale of exports; subsidies on some foods to keep down the cost of living, especially in urban areas; and subsidies to encourage the expansion of farm production and achieve self-reliance in food production.[1] EFFECTS OF SUBSIDY REMOVAL In a country of power instability the removal of fuel subsidy has triggered double in the price of fuel . 1. increased price of fuel and other petroleum product 2. increase in transport fares 3. increased price of food products.

Information and Communication Technologies in the Nigerian Economy

...Information and Communication Technologies in the Nigerian Economy Peter Agada University of Ilorin Most developing nations have embarked on various reforms that foster the use of ICTs in their economies. These reforms tend to yield little or minimal benefits to economic growth and development, especially when compared with the developed countries of the world. Technological advancement is known to impact fast rate of economic development.

This study intends to investigate the emerging roles of ICTs on Nigerian economy, and to evaluate the factors that influence the decisions of investors in the Nigerian telecommunications sector.
