Abstract null null Since 2010, a severe lack of migrant workers has occurred in some provinces in China, indicating a sharp decline in labor force transfer in the primary industry during the economic transition. This decline is believed to have resulted in a decrease in carbon emissions. A neoclassical framework was built to estimate the labor force mitigation effect on CO2 emissions theoretically. The specific features of the nexus of CO2 emissions, economic development, and rural-urban transfe...

Abstract null null Technology roadmaps have been used as an important tool in strategic technology planning, due to their strong advantages in linking technologies and markets. With the rise of big data analytics, several studies have been suggested regarding data-driven technology roadmapping. However, literatures on providing a systematic method for developing data-driven technology roadmaps is surprisingly sparse. In response, this study suggests a systematic and concrete framework to develop...

ABSTRACT null null The Paris Agreement has recently underlined the relevance of international cooperation via carbon pricing to tackle climate change. With Emissions Trading Schemes (ETS) emerging in developed and developing regions worldwide, linking ETS systems is likely to be necessary in the future. This raises the question as to the appropriateness of linking ETS systems from the perspective of each trading partner. This paper analyses the impact of a hypothetical ETS, covering the electric...

Abstract null null A fuzzy cognitive map (FCM) is an analysis tool that uses a graph structure to show the causal relationships of influence factors in a decision-making system. During the decision-making process, it is reasonable for experts to use linguistic variables to express their subjective opinions. However, few studies have discussed methods for aggregating the linguistic opinions of experts to reach a group consensus in FCM. In addition, the interaction weights among the factors in FCM...

Abstract null null Financial development has been widely proved to be a key driver of economic growth; however, its environmental impact is still inconclusive, especially for G-7 countries (i.e. Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom (UK), and the United State (US)). This paper, therefore, investigates the time-varying impact of financial development on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for G-7 countries over a long historical period. The study analyzes historical data from 1870 ...

Abstract null null This study investigates the relationship between government subsidies and the commercial value obtained from a region's scientific and technological achievements, and argues that this relationship will depend on the average size of the firms present in that region. Using panel data on the high-tech industry in 27 provinces and autonomous regions in China from 2009 to 2019, we show that government subsidies have a significant double threshold effect on the commercial/economic v...

Abstract null null Mobile money is a widespread innovation throughout emerging countries. Since neither country-level institutions nor firm-level factors alone offer satisfactory explanations for mobile money's success, we draw on institutional theory to uncover how firms interact with institutions in target markets and explain the adoption of mobile money services. We perform a fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis on 110 mobile money services from 46 emerging countries revealing four reci...

Abstract null null Despite citizen participation in smart city projects being a critical topic, we lack quantitative studies exploring such topic. In addition, we know very little about how the human and social attachment of citizens to their smart city drives their involvement in smart cities. This study contributes to this stream of research by exploring the determinants of citizen participation in smart city projects. We develop and quantitatively test a model that identifies three key antece...

Abstract null null The purpose of this paper is to explore how the sharing economy (SE) manages its matching service through the development of specific information processing mechanisms to achieve enhanced service performance. Two game theory models are established to reveal the underline mechanism of how SE platforms design and improve their service operations through matching the information-processing capacities (IPC) with the changing information-processing requirements (IPR). The findings ...
