    Demographic Transitions and Economic Consequences: An Analysis of Population Ageing in China

    This research delves into the demographic transitions and their economic ramifications in China by critically analyzing the causes, scale, and impacts of population ageing, along with potential strategies for mitigating its challenges. Recognizing the significance of demographic ageing as a global phenomenon, the paper contextualizes China's ageing population within an international framework, drawing on empirical data and statistics. The analysis investigates the driving factors behind China’s ageing populace, evaluating whether it is an inherent byproduct of economic progression or if it is influenced by additional determinants. Subsequent segments of the study appraise the multifaceted effects of demographic ageing on China's economic landscape and societal structures, encompassing both advantageous and detrimental aspects. To broaden the scope, this study includes an examination of the outcomes of population ageing in other nations, which serves as a reference point for envisaging prospective trajectories for China. Conclusively, the paper proffers recommendations and potential strategies aimed at alleviating the adverse impacts and proactively addressing the challenges posed by an ageing population.

    Portfolio Analysis of Various Financial Assets

    Utilizing Monte Carlo Simulation and annualized data, this paper investigates portfolio establishment with currency, comparing the performance of the portfolio with the performance of equity. Specially, we choose S&P 500 to represent equity, while choosing Gold futures, Bitcoin, and CHF to represent different types of currency. Firstly we use Python to help us do the initial simulation of one million portfolios, analyzing the result of the simulation based on sharp ratio with Excel. We find that there are some regular patterns in the asset allocation of the portfolio and explain the appearance of the strange angle in our simulation. Then to increase the market shares of currency, we advocate adding an extra yield to the currency's annualized return and doing another two simulations on the four assets with a new annual rate of return. We then compare the results of new simulations with the performance of the initial simulation and S&P 500, finding that with extra yield it will be more easier for the portfolio including currency and equity to perform better than initial portfolios. We also find that the regular pattern of asset allocation which is discovered from the initial simulation is inapplicable in new simulations.

    The Reasons on Rapid Recovery of Shanghai Disneyland

    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted many industries, and Disney theme parks were among the hardest hit, suffering significant losses. However, as the pandemic gradually subsided, Shanghai Disneyland, being the first Disney theme park to reopen, experienced a much faster recovery than other Disney theme parks. The purpose of this study was to explore why Shanghai Disneyland was able to recover quickly and what strategies it adopted. This article combines marketing mix theory with operational data and visitor flow statistics from Shanghai Disneyland to analyze the reasons for its rapid recovery. Firstly, Shanghai Disneyland accelerated its recovery by increasing prices, and it can also mitigate risks in the future by implementing advanced ticket sales. Secondly, the park increased ticket sales through various distribution channels and can further improve by refining its ticket refund and exchange policy. Lastly, Shanghai Disneyland enhanced its promotion through various social media channels and can apply this to disseminate everyday knowledge and prevent the risk of pandemic recurrence. This study's analysis of Shanghai Disneyland's swift recovery can provide suggestions and references for the recovery and development of theme parks facing similar pandemic issues in the future, helping to minimize losses.

Taking the acquisition of YOUJIUSHIDAI by SACE as an example, this study adopts the methods of literature review, case study analysis and AMPS model to explore in depth the motives, effects and impacts of cross-border M&A on corporate performance. This study finds that although M&A enhances shareholder wealth in the short term, long-term profitability falls short of expectations, which is mainly limited by the lack of R&D capability and market alignment problems. This study emphasises the importance of synergies and points out that high-premium M&As may lead to goodwill impairment risk, thus affecting the financial status of the firms and the interests of shareholders, and puts forward suggestions to optimise M&A strategies and strengthen regulation, in order to protect the interests of small and medium-sized investors and to promote the healthy development of the capital market.

    A Study of Bayesian Quantile Regression for Forecasting RMB Exchange Rates

    Accurate forecasting of the RMB exchange rate is crucial for global financial market participants. This study proposes a Bayesian quantile regression approach to enhance the forecasting method. This paper uses RMB and US dollar exchange rate data from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange from 2018 to 2022 to build a Bayesian quantile regression model and empirically analyze the RMB exchange rate forecast. The results show that the proposed Bayesian quantile regression model yields accurate forecasts, with a root mean squared error (RMSE) of 1.8329 and a mean absolute error (MAE) of 1.2988. Furthermore, robustness and sensitivity analyses confirm the model's reliability. The findings of this study have practical implications for financial market participants and policymakers in managing and responding to foreign exchange risk.

    Foreign Direct Investment and New Quality Productivity of Enterprises

    Now China is opening up to the outside world at a high level. In the process of utilising foreign investment, it is significant to study how foreign direct investment (FDI) affects the formation of new quality productivity of enterprises in China. This paper examines the impact of FDI on new quality productivity of enterprises. Results using financial statement data of A-share listed companies and FDI level data of the cities where the companies are located from 2011 to 2020 show that FDI has a significant promotion effect on the enhancement of new quality productivity of enterprises. Further analysis reveals that the positive effect is generated through the channels of improving enterprise innovation ability and easing enterprise financing constraints, predominantly observed in non-state-owned enterprises. The test for moderating effect shows that a high degree of capital market openness has a significant positive effect on the formation of new quality productivity of enterprises influenced by FDI. The results of this paper provide a theoretical perspective of FDI for further research on the new quality productivity of enterprises.
