The study investigated the impact of international remittance inflows on Nigeria’s trade balances from 1990 to 2016. The study uses the contemporary econometric techniques of Zivot-Andrew (ZA) structural break unit root test, as well as the Gregory-Hansen cointegration test that allows for a single most significant unknown structural break in both the intercept and the entire coefficient vectors. The results show that remittance inflows to Nigeria have significant negative effect on trade balance, meaning that the Dutch disease effect of remittance inflows prevails in Nigeria. Based on this finding, the study recommends that the remittance inflows to Nigeria should follow the channel of private savings which, in turn, is released to productive domestic investment in order to expand the pool of manufactured products. This will definitely overcome the Dutch disease symptom being experienced in Nigeria.</p> Anne Chinonye MADUKA Chekwube Vitus MADICHIE Chukwunonso Sylvester EKESIOBI ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.degruyter.com/view/supplement/s22860991_Open_Access_License.pdf 2019-07-05 2019-07-05 12 1 1 16 The influence of leadership style on teachers' job motivation and satisfaction in the Druze sector of Israel http://tjeb.ro/index.php/tjeb/article/view/316 <p>The present study examines the dominant leadership style of Junior-High school principals in the Druze sector in northern Israel and its influence on teachers' job motivation and satisfaction. A quantitative research based on questionnaires for the teachers was conducted in nine schools. For this purpose, the shortened form of “The Multi-Factor Leadership Questionnaire", the "Teacher Motivation Questionnaire", and five questions which check teachers’ job satisfaction were chosen. 224 teachers filled in the questionnaires.&nbsp; Research findings show that the teachers who filled the questionnaires are motivated and satisfied, the transformational leadership style is the most dominant leadership style in the schools; there is a significant positive correlation between transformational leadership style and teacher's job motivation and job satisfaction. Teachers who are part of the management staff are significantly more satisfied with their jobs than teachers who are not. There is a significant difference between the age groups and females on laisser-faire leadership style. Teachers who have been teaching more than 51 years, and are males perceive their principals more laisser-faire than teachers who have been teaching between 31-40 years and are females. The results of this research can be beneficial for the schools. They provide a clear picture to the principals and the teachers. It may strengthen and urge them to set higher goals and visions.</p> Nabila KHEIR-FADDUL Doina DANAIATA ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.degruyter.com/view/supplement/s22860991_Open_Access_License.pdf 2019-07-05 2019-07-05 12 1 17 42 The service as general principle of economic activity. Productivity or servicity? http://tjeb.ro/index.php/tjeb/article/view/320 <p>The paper aims to point out main relevant moments in the researches concerning the service issue, containing the reserve for core developments in economics. Roots are from the literature in the last decade of the previous century, but also certain even elder and diverse more recent developments are evoked as well, by the criterion of their importance mainly for better seeing the issue of productivity, and of the interesting particular developments they got later. Apart from the service economy literature, background comes from the genuine liberalism too. The obvious realities of growing immaterial dimension of human concerns give the actual conditions that make such researches necessary, against the orthodox production and material approach. The reference value of our research is supplemented with the developments we made, including defining conceptual distinctions and suitable particularizations. Such contributions are meant to allow the relevant concerned ideas to be better seen, and to improve economics' approaches. The importance of involving such elements in economic research is conclusively underlined. Purely theoretical, the paper does not contain empirical analyses. It is useful for scholars that wish to widen the horizon of their approaches in attempts to render them topical and to improve the common/ dominant economics.</p> Alexandru JIVAN Miruna NACHESCU ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.degruyter.com/view/supplement/s22860991_Open_Access_License.pdf 2019-07-05 2019-07-05 12 1 43 70
