Specifically, the report looks at the appreciatory / depreciatory and volatility trends of these five exchange rates in the sample period along with their comparative levels of correlation with each other.
Based on these findings, the report considers the implications for the export competitiveness and foreign investment flows of Indonesian Rupiah as a result of the exchange rate movements.
This paper makes an initial attempt to investigate whether political stability affects economic growth in OIC oil dependent countries by using relatively advanced dynamic GMM and quantile regression.
This would add new theoretical dimension in political economy with the help of advanced econometric modeling which has been less explored in literature.
Since the end of World War II, Muslim countries have been plagued by sixteen major wars, many coups, political, religious and ethnic insurgency, and revolutions.

While many developing countries in south-east Asia have emerged as developed...Most of the low to mid income oil dependent OIC countries suffer from chronic misery, higher inflation and persistent unemployment, which affects growth negatively.The importance of political stability, economic diversification and macroeconomic stability has been restated with the policy recommendations for oil dependent developing countries in general and OIC countries in particular.In a growing body of literature, the impact of finance and human development on growth has been emphasized but so far little empirical evidence to support this for OIC countries.In this paper an initial attempt has been made to investigate the relationship between finance, human development and economic growth in 44 OIC countries by applying dynamic Generalized Method of Moments (GMM), which overcomes the problems of OLS and other advanced static panel techniques.This paper studies the effect of political stability on economic growth by taking 120 developing countries over the period of 1996–2014.We apply relatively advanced dynamic two step system-GMM and quantile regression. more This paper studies the effect of political stability on economic growth by taking 120 developing countries over the period of 1996–2014.However, while being a simple macroeconomic factor, exchange rates are considered to be one of the most important determinants of an open economy’s relative level of health.The purpose of this report is to analyze and examine the behavior of Indonesian Rupiah with respect to five major currencies over the past 14 years (2001-2014).The importance of accumulation of capital investment for growth is reaffirmed for Muslim countries.Moreover, Asian OIC countries tend to have higher growth than African and MENA region even though the results are not statistically significant.
