The payment methods have been classified into three categories, namely cash only, paper based and electronic-paper. A multinomial logistic model was used to determine the effect of the factors on the odds and probability of businesses selecting these three payment methods. The factors were broadly divided into two groups: (i) firm’s characteristics and (ii) business payment perceptions and priorities. The findi...

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has long been an indicator of economic growth. There is an on-going debate on whether high growth increases well-being. The terms ‘happiness’ and ‘life satisfaction’ are often used interchangeably to explain the subjective well-being levels of individuals. This study examines if both happiness and life satisfaction of Malaysian citizens are explained by the same factors based on a sample size of 1289 adopted from the 6th waves of World Values Survey (2010-2014). Outc...
