To establish statistical model of measurement, this paper analyses the five major domestic economic data whether impact on domestic credit amount, for the purpose of the data cointegration test to eliminate the spurious regression result in error, and through the OLS regression estimate and error correction model is established for dynamic balance of feedback in the short term, then use VAR impulse response function to feedback the long-term dynamic equilibrium, the last three parameters exponential smoothing model is set up to predict the future scale of the credit. According to the conclusion, the total domestic credit scale is a series with cycle fluctuation, seasonal effect and long-term trend. Domestic money supply and domestic fiscal revenue are the main factors affecting the scale of domestic credit. In other words, the fluctuation of domestic credit model tends to return to the normal level, which is balanced and restricted by the medium and long term stable co-integration relationship of the model. To absorb the impact of domestic fiscal revenue or an increase in the domestic money supply, banks adjust for changes in the size of credit, and then show little change. In the short term, the two variables significantly affect the credit scale, but the long-term impact is not significant. Under the condition of constant economic environment, it will still show a steady rise in the future, and the trend of annual cycle is increasing month by month.

Although government procurement is used as a demand-side innovation policy tool in many countries, how government procurement affects corporate technological innovation is still controversial, and its mechanism has not been empirically tested. The research in this paper finds that, from the perspective of enterprises, government procurement should be measured from the scale of government procurement contracts obtained by enterprises and the degree of support from government purchasers. The scale of procurement contracts obtained by enterprises and the degree of support obtained by enterprises from purchasers have an impact on the input and output of enterprise technological innovation. It has a significant positive role in promoting, and technological innovation investment plays an intermediary role in it.

Financialization of non-financial companies, referring to investing more on financial assets instead of main business, is a noticeable trend among Chinese listed companies, especially in recent years. Based on the annual panel data of Chinese A-share non-financial listed companies on the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange from 2014 to 2019, this article analyzes the relationship between financialization and the growth of main business. Results suggest that financialization of non-financial companies has a “crowding-out effect” on industrial reinvestment, and state-owned enterprises, compared with private listed companies, are less likely to be affected by the increase of financial assets.

Although the level of China's financial industry has developed rapidly, but the domestic problem of urban-rural development imbalance is becoming more and more serious, which has formed a serious obstacle to the development and progress of social economy. In order to explore the relationship between the level of China’s financial development capacity and the income gap between urban and rural residents, this paper surveys relevant data from 30 provinces, municipalities and regions in a total of 17 years from 2002 to 2018, and introduces the income gap between urban and rural residents, the scale of financial development, and efficiency. Established a PVAR model based on related variables such as financial development structure, and then conducted co-integration test, Granger causality test, GMM estimation, impulse response and variance decomposition. The empirical results show that there is a long-term equilibrium relationship between various variables, and the urban-rural income gap It is the Granger reason for the scale of financial development, but there is no reverse causality. Through dynamic analysis, it is found that the urban-rural income gap is mainly affected by its own reasons. The scale of financial development can narrow the urban-rural income gap to a certain extent, and the efficiency of financial development is to a certain extent. Will widen the income gap between urban and rural areas, and the explanatory effect of the financial development structure can be ignored.

According to the credit-rating agency in Japan, Tokyo Shoko Research, the sales of 27 affiliates of Mitsubishi Group amount to 410 trillion yen, and the number of related companies is as large as 40,000. This is comparable to the total number of companies in Singapore or Finland. The total sales of companies in Japan amount to 1,625 trillion yen, among which, the 3 major groups (Mitsubishi, Mitsui, Sumitomo) account for 60 percent (961 trillion yen). This implies that a number of companies in Japan deal with these 3 major groups in whatever form it may be. Business groups in Japan have taken lead of the economic growth of Japan as strong stockholders that maintain close unity and mutual cooperation. Recently, however, their unity seems to be weakened, which is expected to affect Japanese companies’ competitiveness in any form.

A report of the 19th National Congress of Communist Party of China (2017) stated that the core of innovation-driven development is technological innovation. For finding future economic development strategies in China, based on national time-series data from 2000 to 2019, this study mainly focuses on how technological innovation input affects economic growth. A multiple linear regression model was constructed; the results showed that both research and development (R&D) fund input and personnel input play a positive role in influencing economic growth in China, and the impact of R&D expenditure is more significant than that of R&D personnel. On this basis, we found the long-term stationary equilibrium relationship between technological innovation input and economic growth by applying the unit root test and cointegration analysis. Finally, two-stage least square specification was used to eliminate issues caused by endogeneity. Based on the above conclusions, the paper proposed policy suggestions for economic growth.

With the continuous development of economic globalization, in order to meet the different needs of enterprises in production and operation, the scale of multinational companies is also increasing, and has played a certain role in economic development. The ultimate goal of an enterprise is to maximize profits, and in order to achieve this goal, multinational enterprises usually use transfer pricing to operate. Transfer pricing has both advantages and disadvantages. Although it can help enterprises reduce tax burden, it will also produce tax-related risks, and even affect the economic development of regions or countries. In view of this situation, through the analysis of the tax risks involved in the transfer pricing of multinational enterprises, some corresponding countermeasures are put forward.

At present, oximetry is an important indicator for monitoring patients. How to build a model to describe the model of oxygen saturation and apply it in medical practice has attracted widespread attention in the world. This article first used the DFA algorithm to detrend the original data. Then the sample entropy is calculated separately from the singular and plural scales. The mean value, variance of oximetry, regression parameters, single-scale sample permutation entropy, and multi-scale sample permutation entropy are used as the characteristic value of the typical model of oximetry. Finally, we used fuzzy clustering and Spearman's rank correlation coefficient and Kendall tau rank correlation coefficient, and then concluded that the overall oximetry content of the elderly is decreased, the stability is weak, and the regularization is not strong.

This paper uses the data of per capita cultural consumption and per capita disposable income of urban and rural residents from 2000 to 2020 to study the marginal tendency of cultural consumption of urban and rural residents in my country through the dummy variable model. Empirical research shows that both urban and rural residents' cultural consumption and income show a significant positive correlation. By comparison, it can be found that the rural residents in China are significantly backward than urban residents in such respects as total cultural consumption volume, proportion of cultural consumption in their incomes, and the consumption ability related to cultural marginal propensity. Therefore, when formulating corresponding policies, it is particularly necessary to formulate appropriate policies to promote the development of rural cultural undertakings in accordance with the actual conditions in rural areas of China.

The pound fell a quarter of a percent to as low as $1.2994 against the dollar after the BBC reported a group of about 50 lawmakers in May’s government had met to discuss how and when they could force her out of her job.

These lawmakers have condemned May’s plans for Britain to remain in a free trade zone for goods with the EU after it leaves the bloc in March, 2019.

 

The pound later recovered to trade flat at $1.3028, while against the euro the British currency was largely unmoved, at 89.010 pence per euro.
