Abstract and key words:

  • Indonesia as a country with the highest consumption of rice in the world (Ministry of Agriculture, 2012) but has not been able to meet domestic production, ironically reduced agricultural land is converted to non-agricultural land, poor inputs, unsustainable credit granting, low technology leads to low production, so the policy alternatives are importing, on the other hand, Indonesia is a member of the ASEAN economic community (MEA) in the hope of being able to meet the rice production because the ASEAN MEA commitment becomes a production base and can compete with other countries in the world by launching single market. To anticipate the existence of MEA, and the anticipation of the import of rice of world rice exporter countries, it is necessary to analyze the impact of MEA existence, and anticipation of rice imports of world rice exporter countries by using policy simulation. The results showed that rice crops tendency in Indonesia from year to year decreased, so that rice production decreased, but if Indonesia reduces rice imports it can increase productivity so that the price decreases and demand for price increases. As a result of the agreement of MEA Indonesia imported to Thailand and Vietnam, but Indonesia prefers import from Vietnam country as import country because Vietnamese rice price is cheaper. The removal of import restrictions from Vietnam and Thailand has lowered rice imports from Thailand and increased imports from Vietnam. The policy of decreasing imports from India and China resulted in the decline of rice from both countries and Thailand but increased rice imports from Vietnam.

  • THE EFFECT OF STOCK OPTION COMPENSATION ON EARNINGS MANAGEMENT WITH CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND AUDIT QUALITY AS MODERATING VARIABLES; pp. 43-53
  • Language of article: English
  • Crossref DOI: 10.18551/rjoas.2018-07.05

Abstract and key words:

  • Agency theory stated that stockholders must establish contractual relationships to provide reasonable compensation for managers to make decisions that maximize shareholder value even in uncertain situations and imperfect monitoring. One of them is stock option compensation. According to positive accounting theory, stock options compensation increase earnings management. The inconsistency of previous study encourages research by adding corporate governance and audit quality as moderating variables. The results prove the tendency of theory that occurs in business practices and provide input for policy makers to suppress earnings management. The sample consists of 16 manufacturing companies in Indonesian Stock Exchange with 81 observation data taken by purposive sampling. Earnings management is measured by real earnings management. Stock option compensation and audit quality with dummy while corporate governance is measured by corporate governance disclosure index. Hypothesis testing was performed using moderated regression analysis. The result of the study proves that stock option compensation has a positive effect on earnings management. Corporate governance reinforces the effect of stock option compensation on earnings management. Audit quality does not moderate the effect of stock option compensation on earnings management. Based on this result, companies should use other incentive plan to reduce earnings management. Practitioners and governments also need to reevaluate corporate governance requirements in order to protect stockholders not only from accrual earnings management but also real earnings management. The auditor profession is advised to continue to develop methods that can detect real earnings management.

Abstract and key words:

  • The Indonesian government has issued many policies on poverty alleviation programs but nothing has been able to significantly improve the welfare of the poor. This is because the programs are more on top-down model and prioritize the technical aspects. The poverty issues in some regions have diverse, specific, and multidimensional situations so that it is unable to generalize poverty from one region to another. This study examined poverty issues by involving the participation of poor people as the target of the programs to define poverty, identify potentials, and design solutions that can be conducted using the Participatory Poverty Assessment (PPA) method. The object of study was the wives from poor families in Srimartani village of Piyungan Bantul Yogyakarta. The results showed that the potentials of household resources of wives of the poor families consisted of 37,78% wives who have ever had their own businesses, 35,56% having experiences in trading, 15,56% having farming skills, and 11,11% having skills as laborers. The empowerment model is by providing hardskill and softskill training based on capability already possessed and business assistance.

Abstract and key words:

  • Sustainable development of Vaname shrimp aquaculture in the future depends on several things, one of which is the availability of the male parent in a sufficient quantity. Regarding this problem, sex reversal can be performed as the solution. Sex reversal is a technique of sex genetic differentiation to change sexes artificially from males genetically into phenotype females or vice versa. This research was intended to obtain the maximal mono-sex (single sex) male of Vaname shrimp using 17α-methyltestosterone (MT) hormone through sex reversal technology to the limited sex change in Vaname shrimp, in which to date the Vaname male parent gained is still dependent on natural selection. This research used a descriptive and experimental method. The experimental research design used was a completely randomized design (RAL – Rancangan Acak Lengkap). The treatment given was immersing the shrimp larvae in 17α-methyltestosterone (MT) for 8 hours at different doses of 0 mg/L, 5 mg/L, 8 mg/L, and 12 mg/L. The immersion of the post-larvae (PL1) of Vaname shrimp using the 17α-methyltestosterone hormone gave a significant result (P < 0.05) on all of the treatments and control in which the highest percentage of male Vaname shrimp was obtained from the treatments with 8 mg/L and 12 mg/L doses, respectively reaching 64% and 66.7%. As for the weight growth, the immersion of the post-larvae (LP1) growth of Vaname shrimp using 17α-methyltestosterone hormone provided a very significant result (P < 0.05) on all the treatments and control in which the highest weight growth (weight gain) and Specific Growth Rate of Body Weight (SGR BW) were shown by the treatments with 8 mg/L and 12 mg/L doses, respectively reaching 1.5415 grams and 1.5871 grams.
