HOW CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND CSR DISCLOSURE AFFECT FIRM PERFORMANCE?

Muhammad Suhaib Manzoor, Ramiz ur Rehman, Muhammad Islam Usman, Muhammad Ishfaq Ahmad

CSR (corporate social responsibility) disclosure evolved as a result of corporate reporting in response to changes in conditions in which companies operate. Gray, Owen and Adams (1996) describe CSR disclosure/reporting as „the process of communicating the social and environmental effects of the economic actions of organizations to particular interest groups within society and society at large“. Elkington (1997) states that the terms CSR reporting, Social Reporting, Corporate Citizenship, Sustainability Reporting and Triple Bottom Line Reporting have been employed in the studies interchangeably. To meet 21st century corporate challenges, the corporate reporting system has changed somehow with an inclusion of non-financial disclosure. Krasodomska and Cho (2017) explain the extent of non-financial reporting presented by the corporation regarding activities such as human resources, risk management, product innovation and quality, and impact of corporate decisions on environment and society.

Joanna Ejdys, Romualdas Ginevicius, Zoltan Rozsa, Katarina Janoskova

One of the factors determining the current and future social and economic advance is the level of society’s digitisation, which is applicable to each sphere of human life (Ejdys & Halicka, 2018; Polak-Sopinska & Wisniewski, 2009). This level is measured by the scale and scope of the phenomenon, i.e. subjective, geographical dynamics of change and the scale of effects caused (Chodakowska & Nazarko, 2017). Digitalisation processes gave rise to a new type of society referred to as the information society. E-government is one of the areas of ICT application in the information society. The term e-government, i.e. electronic public administration, refers to a systém (organisational and legal, institutional, and IT) which enables to deal with administrative matters by electronic means. According to the definition proposed by the European Commission, e-government is the use of ICT tools and systems to provide better public services to citizens and businesses (Digital Single Market: Glossary).

Renata Korsakienė, Vratislav Kozak, Svajonė Bekešienė, Rasa Smaliukienė

High-g rowth firms (HGFs) make a significant impact on the development of countries’ economies and micro, or firm level, factors are vital in understanding this phenomenon. Indeed, HGFs are unique engine of national economies that contribute essentially to economic growth which is much sought after in internationally open economic environment. More specifically, HGFs internationalization is perceived as a source of productivity, export and employment growth in the country. Economic policies of countries, as a macro level stimulus, aim to provide impetus for HGFs development, however understanding micro level factors of HGFs creation, development and internationalization are the basis for macro level decisions. Studying and modelling of micro level factors not only provides an opportunity to understand the phenomenon of HGFs but also develops the basis for policy decisions especially in the field of business internationalization.

Jozef Čech, Marian Šofranko

Traditional methods of economic evaluation by techniques of investment and financial analysis with regards to the specifics of business, engineering and project economics are well known, e.g. (Gillespie, 2013; Newnan et al., 2013; Mian, 2011). Their use in mining evaluation is well adopted. The groundwork in the given field was done and provided in (Gentry & O’Neil, 1984) with following (Runge, 1998). More sophisticated math approach is represented by application of option value paradigm added to classical investment analysis, taking into account managerial aspect of decision flexibility during the project’s life. One of the first application to mining appeared within (Xiaoli & Elbrond, 1996) and to take a more recent, e.g. within (Hall & Nicholls, 2008) and (Saluga, 2011).

Jan Černohorský

In this article, we discuss the relationship of banks, or loans provided by them, and economic development. We decided to investigate this relationship as banks in today’s economies play a significant role as a vital institution in the financial markets, where there is a distribution of monetary funds from surplus entities to deficit entities. A necessary precondition of a functioning economy, in its present mostly mixed form, is a functioning and stable banking system. Currently, uncovered money is to a great extent the money generated by private banks, mainly in the form of loans.

Hussam Musa, Lenka Debnárová, Zdenka Musová, Peter Krištofík

In the European environment, a major initiative for responsible business practice was introduced in the Lisbon summit in March 2000, which EU leaders agreed to make the European Union the most competitive and dynamic knowledgebased economy in the world, capable of sustained economic growth with more jobs and grater social cohesion by 2010 (Musová & Poliačiková, 2008). Consequently, the European Commission issued several documents on social responsibility of businesses in order to help integrate the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) into everyday business life. In the year 2001 the European Commission in its Green Paper published the first official definition of CSR as the “voluntary integration of social and environmental concerns of company’s commercial operations and its relationship with its stakeholders” (Horehájová & Marasová, 2008; Sopková & Raškovská, 2012; Martinčík & Polívka, 2012).

TWIN DEFICITS THREAT IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

Marianna Sinicakova, Veronika Sulikova, Beata Gavurova

In the 1980´s the US economy was marked by until then rather unusual external and internal deficits. Similar situation gradually appeared in other countries. During last decade it was analysed in the case of so called PIIGS countries (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain) in the European Union. This co-movement draws interest of many researchers. Generally it is believed that internal deficit (fiscal budget deficit) causes external one (external balance deficit). External balance deficit is usually measured via trade or current account deficit. This phenomenon is called „twin deficit“. Twin deficit problem can be perceived as a vicious circle. High budget deficit generates important current account deficit and this in turn leads to higher budget deficit. Therefore twin deficit threat should be in the centre of attention of policy makers.
