Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the most important contributions to economics during the last several decades has been the attempt to move this academic discipline from largely axiomatic and deductive approaches to more empirical methods. Nowadays, the methodologies through which researchers explore social issues in general, and economic issues in particular, increasingly incorporate quantitative approaches.

The present Special Issue focuses on the publication of research studies that rely on the use of classical or novel applied mathematics techniques as the means of approaching the study of economic issues.

Proposals should contain a significant statistical component for data analysis. 

Authors are welcome to share the files which provide the full details of the calculations and experimental procedures used as supplementary material that accompany their works.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Economic policy
  • Public economics
  • Development economics
  • Economics of education
  • Econometrics
  • Economic modeling
  • Economic theory
  • Applied economics
  • Applied mathematics
  • Quantitative methods
  • Statistics.

In an unstable economic climate, all market participants want to know is when is the timing to overcome a recession, and what measures and means to use for economic recovery. In this regard, the process through which the Eurozone economy has gained momentum since the summer of 2022 has been a volatile one. This was reflected in a sharp rise in the price level, followed by a sharp rise in the ECB interest rates. The purpose of this paper is to provide short-term forecasts of the main parameters of monetary and fiscal policy by the euro area monetary authorities, based on a model developed by the authors. The distinctive feature of the presented and proposed model lies in the particularly careful selection of the parameter values based on actual statistical data. The statistics used for the proposed model cover the period from 2015 to December 2022. The simulation results show that the European Central Bank (ECB) needs to maintain a policy of high interest rates for a period of 12 to 14 months, which will help to bring inflation down to 2–3 percent in the future and move to a stage and phase of sustainable economic growth.

In the realm of China’s bustling economy, a fascinating dynamic exists between family businesses and state-owned enterprises, characterized by a symbiotic relationship and collaboration. Many family firms today originate from state-owned enterprises. Hence, their earlier ownership institution can influence privatized family firms. However, the impact of this privatization on long-term strategic orientation is not clear. This study endeavors to shed light on this complex matter through meticulous examination, employing estimation and inference techniques through the use of a panel model with a discernible time trend. Combining both imprinting theory and institutional logic theory, this study finds that state ownership imprints intervene in the strategic outcomes of family firms: Privatized family firms induce a lower level of innovation as compared to non-privatized family firms. This research also finds that intergenerational succession weakens this effect while the proportion of state-owned shares strengthens it. Robustness tests, utilizing the PSM method, have been conducted to validate the credibility and reliability of the findings obtained through this study. The findings of this research serve as a testament to the ever-evolving dynamics and interconnectedness prevalent within the intricate tapestry of China’s economic landscape. Full article
