Values, both from the perspective of functional features and from the perspective of
sub stantional essence, are the overarching phenomena that are important for humans, their lives,
and activities. Therefore, some researchers and authors look for values from everywhere, even
from myths, fairytales, and folklore. We think that approaching the problem in such a wide scope
leads to the widening of the topic and sphere of the research to an unproductive degree. If the
study of values are the objects of the axiology, then its research sphere must also be limited.

E-WOM refers to ''''''''Electronic Word of Mouth,'''''''' which works to gather the reviews of the
consumers who are buying and shopping goods online. In the last decade, there has been a
surge in online shopping and the e-purchase of various goods and products. Review
consensus gives a source of trust and faith for the online buyer who is buying a product by
seeing its images without any physical interaction or communication with the seller. Fewer
and less comprehensive reviews systems fail to give the online buyer and consumer an
accurate product picture. Therefore, an extensive collection of detailed and informative
reviews is needed to sell most online products. In the present day, there are 328 online buyers
of goods and services, which is rapidly increasing each day. So, the importance of Review
Consensus on e-WOM and consumer goods e-purchase satisfaction is paramount. One
hundred twenty-nine respondents were collected through a "standard questionnaire" created

Monetary mediators emerge from monetary erosions such as data imbalances and financial
powers, economies of scale, and extension. These gratings and forces also shape the market
structure. While mechanical advancements are nothing new, computerized development has seen
significant advancements in the network of frameworks, calculating power and cost, and newly
created and useable data. These improvements have reduced trade costs while also introducing
new strategies and competitors. The creation of money-related groups could be disaggregated as
technology has improved information transmission and reduced trade costs. Money-related
organizations have been unbundled by explicit participants, allowing consumers to select and
assemble their preferred set-ups of items. Regardless, in a period of automated creation,
admirable money-related abilities remain vital. In the many designs of money-related
organizations, such as customer acquisition, finance, consistent activities, data, and capital,
economies of scale and degree and association impacts are available (counting trust capital).
Despite technological advancements, client appearances and party charges remain basic.

Journal of Contemporary Issues in Business and Government, 2022, Volume 28, Issue 2, Pages 264-291

According to this study, the agriculture industry of Pakistan's eco-efficiency trend and decoupling status between 2001 and 2018 will be examined. As a result, the agricultural sector's impact on resources and the environment has been evaluated. Cropped area, fertilizer use, pesticide imports, and tractor output are proxies for resource use. Agricultural emissions are used as an environmental proxy. Farm output and emissions were estimated based on the World Bank and FAO data. However, there are some other indicators in the Pakistan Economic Survey 2019-20. Therefore, eco-efficiency and the Tapio Decoupling Elasticity Index, two novel approaches, were used in the analysis. Across the board, the results of the eco-efficiency studies show a rise in eco-efficiency. Despite this, the results of the decoupling research show that the indicators used in the study reveal scattered decoupling states throughout separate periods. Signs of severe decoupling, expensive negative decoupling, and weak decoupling are seen regularly. Increasing Pakistan's agricultural eco-efficiency and decoupling may be possible via new technology, modern farming practices, and sound resource management. However, farmers' education and awareness campaigns might be crucial to get the most out of available resources
