Migration movements transform business life because they have more social aspects than geographic or numerical interactions. This paper reviews empirical research better to understand the effect of leadership in the process of xenophobia in the work environment from social identity theory perspective. Leadership as a social contextual factor is critical for understanding in determining individuals’ internalization of particular cultural identities regarding to social identity theory. From that point of view, paternalistic leadership can be an ideological motive to affect the social order by internalization of inferiority among members by family-like relations and involving personal lives and expecting interpersonal favors. The sample of the study was chosen from Gaziantep, with a total number of 634 employees and 78 firms, where the immigrant population is dense. Results revealed that paternalistic leadership and xenophobia dimensions were relatively different in that specific sector. In a nutshell, paternalistic leadership does not significantly affect the personal and political hostility factor of xenophobia as social group theory predicted. However, it affects the cultural and identity dimensions of xenophobia self-idealization. Implications for theory and practice alongside limitations are discussed.

The research investigates an extensive extent of Pakistan stock market Returns data from June 1994 to December 2018 along with the two economic segments including the Military phase (1999-2008) and Democratic phase (1994-1998) (2009-2018) to determine the Pakistan Stock market efficiency. To this end, autocorrelation and variance ratio tests were performed on the returns (weekly based) KSE 100 index during overall period as well as for both the Military Phase and the Democratic phase using adaptive pattern of market competence. The weak efficiency tests show trends of a stock performance, and consequently developing of bounded-adaptive market effectiveness. These tests recognized the presence of asymmetric dynamic behavior of returns obviousness in calculation of risk and return associations during two political states. These confirmations offer provision to investors bounded adaptive rationality, behavior, vigorous behavior of stock return and as a result establishing effectiveness of bounded adaptive market.

Xi Jinping's new era of socialist economic thought, rooted in the great practice of China's economic construction, systematically explains the issue of China's economic development and reform, and clearly answers the important questions of how the economic situation is to be judged, how to judge the development stage, how to determine the development goals, and how to do economic work. Xi Jinping's new era of the socialist economy with Chinese characteristics, system integrity, broad depth, logic and strict, each aspect of the discourse has a creative and vital point of view, forward-looking strategic deployment and "four beams and eight pillars" of the key initiatives. Combining the in-depth study of Xi Jinping's new era socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics and the spirit of the Party's 19th National Congress, this paper tries to sort out Xi Jinping's new era socialist economic thought with Chinese characteristics from five aspects, such as direction theory, goal theory, epistemology, strategy theory, and bottom-line theory.

We analyze the impact of a catalytic collaboration as a tool on the leverage of transformational leadership competencies to generate a sustainable innovation by developing a Sustainable Innovation Matrix (SIM) leadership model. We observe it by employing a unique data set of the behaviors of fifty regional heads (mayors and regents) in Indonesia. The results of the analysis show that the transformational leaders who made a catalytic collaboration have proven ability to create significant impacts on their regions. The changing times in the industry 4.0 era are a great opportunity for a leader to formulate a program involving various parties. Various sources of information can easily be accessed; moreover, it becomes faster and more efficient to communicate with others. The leaders with good transformational leadership competencies who make a catalytic collaboration can generate innovations that not only create relevant impacts on the needs of their regions, but they are also sustainable in terms of economic and environmental aspects. The results also suggested that leaders must be courageous to make innovation and strongly care for their regional development despite limited resources there. In doing so, those leaders must collaborate catalytically with other parties to optimize all available opportunities for the progress of the regions that they lead.
