Abstract : The economy cannot be separated from the role of government spending in stimulating the economy. Fiscal policy is government’s tool to intervene in the economy, could change for the better economy or even make the economy into a recession. On the other hand, economic activity over the impact of greenhouse gas contribution, so the impact on global climate change. Therefore, a certain sectorspecific fiscal policies have considerable impact in influencing greenhouse gases. This study aims to provide an analysis of fiscal policy scenarios that can affect greenhouse gases, so that could explain what sector-specific fiscal policies that can increase the risk of climate change. This research uses the model of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) based fiscal policy held by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia named AGEFIS (Applied General Equilibrium Model for Fiscal). The scenario is to decrease fosil fuel subsidy that can produce CO2 emision. The results shows that decreasing fossil fuel subsidies can reduce the CO2 emission, but with high consequences.

Abstract : The implementation of regional autonomy resulted in each region to be able to manage their finances independently. This is one way the central government to remove the dependency of local governments to the central government. Thus requiring local governments to explore the sources of local revenue in order to finance regional development. In an effort to increase local revenues derived from the PAD is determined by economic factors or economic potential which has the prospect to be developed for each area. The result indicates the role of the revenue (PAD) in the Regional Budget (APBD) of East Java Province indicates that there is still very small, with an average of 15.47% of the total revenue budget. This means that the level of dependence of local governments on the central government is still high. Although the results of regional revenue projections indicate that component has been great in their contribution of the reception area, which amounted to 69.52%. Using the ordinary least squre method, the result of regression correlation are insignificant.

Revenue from tourism showed significant progress and continues to grow, so bring a high impact on the Indonesian economy. Number of tourists visiting foreign countries is an important indicator for the growth of tourism sector in Indonesia is related to the increase in foreign exchange. Increase or decrease of tourist arrivals is influenced both by internal factors such as the condition of tourist destinations in Indonesia, politics and security in Indonesia or external factors such as the economic conditions of the various countries of origin of foreign tourists. This study uses panel data with the annual number of tourist arrivals from a number of countries to Indonesia for 19 years as the dependent variable. The independent variable of this research is RGDPP (Real GDP Per Capita), RREER (Relative Real Effective Exchange Rate), TCPI (Indicative Ratio of Consumer Price Index), Population, CPITUNIS (Consumer Price Index Tunisia), TO (Trade Openness). The results of this study indicate that tourist arrivals to Indonesia is heavily influenced by the distance from their home country to destinations in Indonesia. This variable is the biggest variable affecting the arrival of foreign tourists to Indonesia. Income per capita is the second largest variable and has a coefficient close to unity, so that the income elasticity of country of origin is an important variable to be considered.

Abstract : The objective of this research is to understand the effect of internet utilization, proxied by numbers of internet user to inflation rate. Several other factors are also being considered, which are growth of money supply, exchange rate, and world oil price. There are China, India, Japan, Indonesia, and South Korea, consecutively represent top five countries with the biggest internet users in Asia to be observed. Pooled Least Square with Panel Corrected Standard Error has been employed in terms of analysing inflation's behavior of those countries. The main finding of this research is that inflation and numbers of internet user are negatively correlated, while the causal effect is statistically not significant. This is most probable, since utilization of internet is still dominated by web surfing, social media, and online games. On the other hand, money supply, exchange rate, and world oil price has a positive relationship with inflation. Those findings are true for all the countries being observed.
