This has led to the need for improved indicators of domestic debt sustainability such as debt to government revenue ratios. Yet, studies on the comparative usefulness of these measures remain scanty. Consequently, this paper employs the domestic debt to revenue ratio as the preferred indicator because it depicts the debt burden on the country and indicates the fiscal capacity to sustainably accumulate debt. The study relies on a debt sustainability framework while a dynamic modelling approach was used to ascertain the sustainability of debt in Nigeria for the period 1980-2019. The result revealed that debt to government revenue better reflects domestic debt sustainability in Nigeria as against debt to GDP ratio. The counterfactual simulation exercise revealed that an increase in domestic revenue mobilization makes the debt profile more sustainable. The analysis also revealed that the long-run determinants of debt in Nigeria are interest rate, the growth rate of GDP, and financial deepening while the contemporaneous determinants are inflation, exchange rate, trade openness and federal government total expenditure as a percentage of government revenue. Therefore, the paper suggests that efforts towards intensifying non-oil domestic revenue mobilization should be considered particularly through export diversification, broadening the tax base, reducing fiscal leakages and enhancing the efficiency of revenue collection could be considered</em>.</p> 2022-06-12T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 CHIANG MAI UNIVERSITY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS Halal Economy System in Gulf Cooperation Council 2022-01-23T13:40:17+07:00 Nipon Saengsri <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>Research article&nbsp; of&nbsp; Halal Economy System in Gulf Cooperation Council&nbsp; is&nbsp; a&nbsp; descriptive&nbsp; research&nbsp; on&nbsp; Halal Economy System in Gulf Cooperation Council&nbsp; is&nbsp; a&nbsp; study&nbsp;&nbsp; on Halal Economy System in Gulf Cooperation Council, Collecting&nbsp; from&nbsp; Al-Qur’ãn,&nbsp; Al-Hadith&nbsp; and&nbsp; other&nbsp; miscellaneous&nbsp; documents&nbsp; included&nbsp; primary&nbsp; source,&nbsp; secondary&nbsp; source&nbsp; and&nbsp; tertiary&nbsp; source,&nbsp; achieved,&nbsp; interpretive&nbsp; precedence,&nbsp; historical&nbsp; analysis&nbsp; and&nbsp; divided&nbsp;&nbsp; into&nbsp; several&nbsp; subjects.&nbsp;</p> <p>The results showed that Halal Economic System in the Gulf Cooperation Council under Islamic law or Shari’ah therefore have the same source as Islamic law ; Al-Quran, Al-Sunnah, Al-Ijtihad and Al-Qiyas.

Thailand has embraced this development feature by establishing ten SEZs across the country aimed to resuscitate the economy, with a focus on high value-added industries. The purpose of this paper is to review this development strategy, with a focus on investment and local economic development. Despite investment incentive and administrative services, these SEZs fail to attract new investor and generate economic growth. Developmental outcomes in these zones are not significantly greater than the rest of the economy. I argue that this is because most of targeted industries are not in line with Thailand’s current comparative advantage, which can hinder opportunity to reap dynamic gain from trade in the era of global value chain. The upshot is that this paper calls for redesigning the SEZs to be consistent with country’s stage of economic development.</p> 2022-06-12T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 CHIANG MAI UNIVERSITY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS The analysis of users’ behavior and factors affecting their usage of online delivery application in Bangkok 2022-02-17T16:34:49+07:00 Pramook Takiankam Wanakiti Wanasilp <p>The purpose of this research was to study the demographic and behavioral factors determining the users’ choice of delivery application in Bangkok.

The cross-sectional data was collected in June 2014 with the sample of 20,787 persons nationwide. Descriptive statistics and treatment effect models were used to analyze the data. The study found that there were several factors contributing to the increased incidence of smoking such as an individual getting started smoking at the age under 20, drinking alcohol, living outside the municipality, having higher in income, being unemployed or working in agriculture, forestry and fishery sectors, and other basic occupations. The factors were an individual was married, having high educational level and being in the age between 45 to 59 years old, would reduce the chance of smoking. The factors that increase daily dose of cigarette smoking were an individual getting started smoking at the age under 20, drinking alcohol, having higher in income, being in age group between 25 - 44 years old and working as plant and machine controllers, clerical workers, artisans, and related worker or service and sale staffs. The daily smoking dose will decrease if an individual spending more time in their study, living in non-municipal area, being in the age group of 60 and up, working as professionals or working in agriculture, forestry and fishery sectors. An effective tobacco control policy on smoking behavior was a warning picture on cigarette packets policy, public smoking ban policy and price policy.</p> 2022-06-12T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 CHIANG MAI UNIVERSITY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS
