Abdul Latif,Nadeem Bhatti,Ghulam Murtaza Maitlo,Muhammad Suhail Nazar
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n3p225
Abstract: Pakistani wheat growers and their economic implications are analyzed through alternative specifications of the Demand Model. Existences, nature of production lags, and the choice between expected wheat and gross returns were taken as the preferred explanatory variables of producers’ response to the changing economic condition. The analyses indicate that there are lags which are, primarily, due to the difficulties and cost of rapid adjustment rather than to the time required to revise expectations. The statistical results were similar for the alternative specification of gross margins and wheat as the economic decision available. However, the wheat elasticity derived using the gross margins specification were about a third of those using the wheat specification.

Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n2p34
Abstract: This qualitative study was designed to gather information, using focus groups, about Asian international students’ experiences and attitudes toward Australian-New Zealanders, to identify the sources of these attitudes, and to discover methods that could address negative attitudes that Asian students might have towards Australian-New Zealanders students. Data were collected from 200 respondents by using simple random technique at the ratio of 100 respondents each (Asian, and Australian-New Zealander students). A well structured questionnaire was used as a tool to record the responses. This article also underlines perspectives for rethinking research strategies with Asian international students. It was revealed that Asians were “nice” and “friendly” and it was easy to develop friendships with them. Some students suggested that friendships were easier to form with Australian-New Zealanderss than with Asian students because Australian-New Zealanders seemed to be more curious about Asian cultures and expressed their emotions more openly and honestly. The participants agreed that Australian-New Zealanders were not all bad, as they were portrayed in the media.

Abstract: This research instigates the forecasting the Stock by using the Dart Board theory which is one of the famous theories of them is “Dart Board Theory of Stock Selection”: you can select a stock by throwing a dart at the Wall Street Journal and probability of your success is more than others who follow expert’s advice. This paper evaluates that significant factor behind the success of dart board theory is Chain Reaction in stock’s prices. The data of 30 stocks selected from KSE 100 index (stocks cover about 50-60 percent of total market volume) is arranged in four sub-categories according to their weights assigned in KSE 100 index respectively. The stock’s price moves are measured in percentage and arranged from single day to four months Result indicate that Cat: I stocks have dominant effect on stocks’ prices of Cat: II and III and causes them to move along. The value of pros/expert recommendation is also measured, based on comparative analysis of change in mutual funds earning with change in average KSE 100 index. Results also support chain reaction concept; as positive correlation exist between performance of KSE 100 index and mutual funds earnings. Findings also indicate that pros recommendations are keys to start a chain reaction.

Abdul Latif,Muhammad Suhail Nazar,Najma Noor Phulpoto,Faiz Muhammad Shaikh
International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n5p171
Abstract: This research investigates the welfare effect of economic costs and benefits of Pak-India trade with exporting dried dates. The first scenario is when normal trading relation with India will be restored. It means that both countries will give the MFN status to each other. in the second scenario, the SAFA will be operative and there will be free trade between India and Pakistan and both countries will remora all tariffs and custom duties from each other's imports. After employing the simplified static analysis framework, the analysis based on simulations reveals that current demand for Khairpur dates will expand after the FTA and consumer surplus will increase. The drop in the domestic prices of dates will increase the production of many down stream industries, which will have pleasant multiplier effects on the economy. Overview of dates industry and results of economic analysis indicate that Pakistan will get benefit from the FTA by getting the cheaper labor for which will increase their competitiveness, and to reduce the costs of trade diversion in some commodities, the government should reduce MFN tariffs on industrial dates before implementing the FTA a key rule of multilateral trade system is the reduction in trade barriers should be applied, on a most-favored nation basis (MFN), to all WTO members. The only exception to the MFN principle built into the GATT legal framework is the provision for reciprocal free trade within customs unions and free trade areas (GATT article XXIV) objectives of the present study is to analyze qualitatively and quantify the potential economic cost and benefits of prospective trade between India and Pakistan to consumers, producers and government of the two countries for export of dried date under the following two scenarios, i.e, when normal trading relations between Pakistan and India will be restored and when there will be a free trade between Pakistan and India in the presence of South Asian Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA). Following the analytical framework discussed by PO managerial (20001), we employ the simplified static analysis for individual industries to instigate the welfare gains or losses.

Asian Social Science , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v7n6p159
Abstract: This research investigates the Human Resources Development and strategies for the sustainable rural development in Pakistan. The data were collected from 300 respondents from five Districts Dadu, Nawabshah, Shikarpur, Jacobabad and Kashmore by using simple random technique. It was revealed that the HRD policies are not effective in the rural development in rural Sindh. Studies suggest that the success of a small firm depend more upon the policies it adopted than the buoyancy of the market in which it operates. It was further revealed that external influences are less important, than individual factors, particularly the management competencies and the personal attributes to cope with the small business environment. Some individual’s successes as entrepreneur when the odds seems stacked against them, whilst other fail when the conditions for success are relatively good. Micro and Macro both strategies should be properly designed to address the problems of rural people.
