Visibility, Process and Effects of Global Currency: A case study research on The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (CCASG)

Proposed Title: Visibility, Process and Effects of Global Currency: A case study research on The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (CCASG)

The research will focus on global currency placing imperative views on its visibility, process and effects particular on the economic and political side, looking for detailed and comprehensive case study analysis towards the Arab States of the Gulf, how the latter may utilize global currency as put into effective stature and assumptions. Preliminary literature is important here detailing global currency, any salient information bases that is of value to the research focus, the execution of case surveys to be handed to the cooperation council authorities of the Arab States, this will be in survey based statements as put in a five point response ratio and scaling in following measures: a) Global currency and visibility b) Global currency and process c) Global currency and economic effects d) Global currency and political effects. The ratio will have to be in point 1 to point 5 system of strongly agree down to strongly disagree. Furthermore, selection of specific journals and articles is imperative for the research as it allows grounding nature and discussion analysis from case study research on the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf

Amiably, when using national currencies in international trade, both flexible and fixed exchange rate systems pose number of problems. The most important is large deflationary bias on the global economy, as deficit countries are forced to try to attain positive current account balance to protect their exchange rate. There was a proponent who advances the Post Keynesian policy proposal (Moore, 2004) for common global currency, where exchange rates vanish and countries no longer have an external balance constraint. In order to move toward common world currency, two approaches has been considered: the top down approach, consisting of global central bank as it is politically unfeasible, and bottom-up approach, upon consisting of blocs of countries that chose to dollarize or euroize (Moore, 2004). The research will take account of certain dollarization and euroization plan for the global economy. The latter information would enable Arab States economies to pursue expansionary domestic policies since they would no longer face an external balance constraint. The Gulf Cooperation Council have some vivid plans to introduce global based single currency by the year 2010 into their six member states such as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The research study will then focus on selected macroeconomic and institutional issues and key policy choices which are likely to arise during the visible process as well as certain effects of monetary integration.

Research findings will be that there will be supranational Gulf Cooperation Council monetary institution as to be required to conduct single monetary and exchange rate policy geared to the economic, monetary and financial conditions into monetary union as a whole assumption, the Gulf Cooperation Council member states (Sturm and Siegfried, 2005). have already achieved remarkable degree of monetary convergence, but fiscal convergence remained such challenge and needs to be supported by appropriate fiscal policy framework as there is currently high degree of structural convergence, although the situation expected to diminish in view of the process of global dominance in Gulf Cooperation Council economies, which call for several adequate policy responses to recognize effective global currency (Sturm and Siegfried, 2005). Indeed, there will be impeding need to compare the dollar peg to dollar-euro basket peg as alternative exchange rate regimes for the incipient Gulf Cooperation Council currency union. Thus, quantitative evidence suggests basket peg does not dominate dollar peg for improving external stability. Aside, as Gulf Cooperation Council exports and external financial assets become more diversified, presence of a more flexible exchange policy may be necessary for competitiveness and stability. Pegging the prospective common Gulf Cooperation Council currency to a basket, like the dollar-euro basket, may provide conservative transitional strategy towards ideal and flexible exchange rate policy.

Sample Research Proposal on TOURISM INDUSTRY IN ZAMBIA

Chapter 1 – Background to the Study The Zambian economy has historically been based on the copper-mining industry, which is done the Copperbelt. Output of copper had fallen, however, to a low of 228,000tonnes in 1998, continuing a 30-year decline in output due to lack of investment, and more recently, low copper prices and uncertainty over privatization. In 2001, the first full year of a privatized industry, Zambia recorded its first year of increased productivity since 1973. The future of the copper industry in Zambia was thrown into doubt in January 2002, when investors in Zambia's largest copper mine announced their intention to withdraw their investment. Zambia now needs to depend on other tourism activities to help the economy. The main objective of this study is to investigate Zambia's policy on tourism, and explore mechanisms available to promote this industry elsewhere by identifying tourist attraction areas, and instituting lasting policies by the government, which has …

Sample Research Proposal on Internet Banking Services

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE Internet banking refers to the utilization of the Internet for performing transactions and payments by accessing a bank's secure website.It also pertains to the application of financial services and markets through the use of electronic communication and computation(Humphrey et al. 2004).The developments can be subdivided into two main areas. The first is the impact of Internet banking on financial services. Most economists perceive that the existence of the Internet and other electronic communication processes has significantly changed many aspects of the banking industry. A majority of the services normally provided by banks can already be provided by other financial entities (Jayaratne et al. 2001). The second main area is the major transformation that occurred on most financial markets. Nowadays, these no longer need to be related with a physical place. In effect, trading systems for foreign exchanges are gradually becoming global. All these change…

Sample Research Proposal on Smoking Among School Children

TITLE/Name of the proposal: Factors affecting smoking among school (9th &12th) grade in Oman: Smoking among school children 9thgrade to 12th grade in the sultanate of Oman 1-INTRODUCTION The age of smoking initiation has dropped over the past four decades. Since behaviors and attitudes adopted in late childhood or early adolescence predicts future smoking, it is important to understand the smoking and other risk-taking behaviors and attitudes of children aged 12 and younger. There supports the idea of early identification and targeting of children at high risk of smoking in middle school, possibly as early as grade seven. 2-AIM OF THE STUDY a- There is a need to amicably evaluate such knowledge, attitude as well as behavior of school children in Oman those in 9th and 12th grade and inform them with regards to the consequences of smoking mostly affecting their health conditions; b- There is utmost goal for describing substantial affective factors associated with the presence of smokin…
