    Sveriges framtida vinterturism: företags och kommuners anpassningar till klimatförändringarna2008Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska fjällområdet är välbesökt av både utländska och svenska turister. Kalfjällen och det öppna landskapet utgör en omtyckt vandringsmiljö och de alpina skidområdena har årligen miljontals besökare.

    Klimatförändringarna diskuteras flitigt idag och fjällområdet står inför enförändring. Djur- och växtarter flyttar norrut och kalfjällen växer igen. Den alpina skidsäsongen förväntas bli kortare, vilket får ekonomiska konsekvenser för de berörda verksamheterna. Skistar AB, som är den dominerande aktören inom alpin verksamhet i Norden, ökar ständigt användandet av snökanoner för att säkerställa skidsäsongen. I samband med detta ökar vatten- och energianvändningen och utsläppen. Företaget vill kunna bli ett alternativ för de turister som väntas lämna skidåkningen i Alperna på grund av snöbrist.

    Framtidens klimat kan komma att kräva ännu mer av de alpina verksamheterna och de berörda kommunerna för att behålla en högbesöksfrekvens. Expansionen av områden som till exempel Sälen och Åre är idag enorm, och stora planer finns för ytterliggare utbyggnader för framtiden. För att ha en hållbar utveckling av dessa områden så kan samspelet mellan kommuner och företag handla om att förändra verksamheten så att den blir bättre anpassad till ett framtida klimat.

    Inomföretagshandel: en deskriptiv studie av de gängse ekonomiska modellernas förmåga att förklara inomföretagshandel2009Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay in economic geography describes what intra-firm trade as a concept is and different ways to determine in which cases trade is to be labeled as intra-firm trade (IFT) or not. The method used by the author is most easily described as descriptive. This method was chosen in order to test if existing theories; classic and neoclassic economics, new trade theory and international business studies, are capable to explain the phenomena of IFT. The theories are tested trough primary and secondary literature but also trough reasoning by the author.

    The conclusion is that the most reasonable way to determine whether trade occurs intra-firm or not, is to decide upon a 5-% rule where it when one part owns 5-% of the voting strength in the other company is to be considered intra-firm trade. This is a conclusion based on several reasons; the strongest one being that a common view on IFT could boost comparative studies as the U.S already collects data based on the 5-% rule.

    Classic and neoclassic economics are incapable of explaining IFT as aprerequisite for these theories is that markets are perfect. IFT can only beexplained by models building on imperfect markets hence new trade theory and international business are more successful in explaining IFT.

    On arbitration, arbitrage and arbitrariness in financial markets and their governance: Unpacking LIBOR and the LIBOR scandal2015Ingår i: Economy and Society, ISSN 0308-5147, E-ISSN 1469-5766, Vol. 44, nr 2, s. 188-217Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Amongst a series of scandals to hit international financial markets in recent years, that surrounding the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) – a highly influential interest rate benchmark – has attracted particularly intense media scrutiny. This paper seeks to push beyond conventional understandings to unpack critically both LIBOR itself and the scandal involving its manipulation by major international banks. Envisioning LIBOR as a commodity beset by inherent contradictions, the paper mobilizes the tropes of arbitration, arbitrage and arbitrariness to illuminate, respectively: the market-making work performed by LIBOR; its role in enabling the transfer of financial risk, most notably when fraudulently manipulated; and the nature of the regulatory prosecution of such manipulation.

    Remaking Mortgage Markets by Remaking Mortgages: US Housing Finance after the Crisis2018Ingår i: Economic Geography, ISSN 0013-0095, E-ISSN 1944-8287, Vol. 94, nr 3, s. 238-258Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the post- financial crisis reregulation of US housing finance, focusing on reforms to rein in excessive risk taking and reconstitute the private circulation of mortgage debt. We begin by situating current initiatives-namely, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010-in a much longer trajectory of attempts to construct a national market for home mortgages. Following the theorization of the economy of qualities by Callon, Meadel, and Rabeharisoa, we argue that a dominant theme throughout has been creating or fixing mortgage markets by performing work on the commodities-the mortgage products-that circulate in them. In light of this history, we argue that Dodd-Frank's primary novelty lies in the way it alters relations between those products and market-supporting institutions, laws, and regulations. We conclude that this shapes a new set of contradictions and conflicts between market liquidity and risk taking, on the one hand, and the original concerns with financial safety and soundness, on the other.

    Income Opportunities and Sea Piracy in Indonesia: Evidence from Satellite Data2016Ingår i: American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, ISSN 1945-7782, E-ISSN 1945-7790, Vol. 8, nr 2, s. 154-194Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The effect of climatic variation on conflict and crime is well established, but less is known about the mechanism through which this effect operates. This study contributes to the literature by exploiting a new source of exogenous variation in climate to study the effect of fishermen's income opportunities on sea piracy. Using satellite data to construct a monthly measure of local fishing conditions it is found that better income opportunities reduce piracy. A wide range of approaches are employed to ensure that these effects are driven by income opportunities rather than other mechanisms through which climate could affect piracy.

    Vem bestämmer egentligen?: Om handelsetableringar och kommunal samhällsplanering2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar kommunal samhällsplanering, med fokus på handelsetableringar. Uppsatsen tar avstamp i den utveckling med externalisering och koncentration av detaljhandeln som pågått under de senaste decennierna. Denna utveckling är såväl lokal som regional och har inneburit att detaljhandeln koncentrerats till centralorternas stadskärnor och externa stormarknader. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka vilken aktör som bestämmer över denna utveckling. De aktörer som undersöks är dagligvaruhandeln och samt kommuner. Från dessa aktörer intervjuas ett antal informanter: etableringschefer på Axfood, Coop och Ica, samt kommunalråd och kommuntjänstemän från Borlänge, Säter och Örnsköldsviks kommuner. Dessutom intervjuas ett antal personer från en lokal intresseförening i Husum. Materialet visar att dagligvaruföretagen är aktiva och trendsättare, medan kommunerna är relativt passiva och försöker klara sig så bra som möjligt utifrån sina förutsättningar. I slutändan finner uppsatsen att det är handeln snarare än kommunerna som bestämmer över utvecklingen med externalisering och koncentration av handel. Detta aktualiserar bland annat frågan om framtida samarbete över kommungränserna i detaljhandelsfrågor kan bli nödvändigt.

    Creative Cluster Evolution: The case of the film and TV industries in Seoul, South Korea2015Ingår i: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 23, nr 10, s. 1993-2008Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Can the concept of co-evolution help to analyse and explain the dynamics of creative industries? This article tackles the question by investigating the film and TV cluster in Seoul, South Korea. The analysis of the 35 semi-structured interviews confirms the dynamics of the film and TV industries in Korea. First, Hallyu began with the export of Korean TV drama series across East Asia. The state deregulation and neo-liberal reforms during the 1990s in Korea boosted an explosion of the export of the Korean film and TV industry. Second, the core of the film and TV production is concentrated within Seoul, while dispersion of those industries occurred in Gyeong-gi province. Third, from an institutional perspective, tensions between the central government and the film and TV industry can be observed, which have been intensifying since 2006. This paper concludes that particularly co-evolution could potentially be an important concept to explain and analyse dynamics in creative industries.

    Investigating the multiple roles of production managers in the case of Swedish filmmakingManuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the key players and their roles in the network ecology of the Swedish film production. The analysis of the semi-structured interviews and filming site observations highlight the multiple functions of production managers in the case of Swedish filmmaking. First, managers function as investigator of screening trends, fashion and fads. Second, mangers have a bridge builder function building global pipelines in order to find co-production partners. Third, managers have a gatekeeper function as they direct external knowledge sourcing, integrating and diffusing.

    Like a wave: Understanding the film and TV industries in Korea and Sweden2016Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral dissertation is concerned with the complex dynamics of knowledge in the South Korean film and TV industry and Swedish filmmaking from a spatiotemporal perspective. The film and TV industries are highly dependent on knowledge and innovation. Production in the film and TV industries usually takes place in the form of projects in which creative professionals form teams for a limited time period to complete creative tasks. Moreover, the film and TV industries are facing rapid and constant changes to work practices, technology, markets and demand. Therefore, the dynamics of knowledge and interactive learning can be an important source of competitive advantages and project success in the film and TV industries. 

    The aim of this thesis is to enhance understanding of knowledge creation and diffusion processes, relationships with institutional settings and the systematic character of business in the film and TV industries. The focus of this thesis is on the production value chain in which many independent production firms are active. It is argued that 1) the film and TV industries and their institutional environments co-evolve; and 2) project-specific knowledge sourcing takes places through local-extra local linkages.

    The case of the Korean film and TV industry indicates that its evolution strongly depends on the setting of the respective institutions and regulations, and on the institutional environments. In addition, it is argued that diverse actors, factors and sectors are involved in the emergence and development of the Korean film and TV industry. The Swedish filmmaking case study examines production processes and ecologies and argues that production managers are the key players in them, and their roles – investigator, bridge builder and gatekeeper – in knowledge creation and diffusion processes are central to this part of the production of film and TV. Exploring two case studies with a focus on the key (f)actors of knowledge creation and diffusion processes has resulted in the view that knowledge-based competencies can be an important source of competitive advantage and project success in high-velocity environments.

    Abstract [en]

    While the local buzz and global pipeline approach has provided a useful account of knowledge creation and diffusion in creative industries, little attention has been paid to the complex dynamics of knowledge flows through time and space. This article examines how the dynamics of local buzz and global pipelines supported Hallyu (translated into English as the Korean Wave, which refers to the increased popularity of South Korean cultural goods outside of Korea) by analyzing the Korean film and TV industry. It is argued that changes in extra-local knowledge linkages offer opportunities for the expansion of the industry, both in domestic and international markets. The main findings indicate that not only the dynamics of local buzz and global pipelines reconfigured Hallyu, but also public support policies, private sector’s exertion and increased demand in the global market promoted Hallyu.

    Vad föredrar pendlingscyklister, egentligen?: En analys av pendlingscyklisters preferenser2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns i dagsläget inte tillräckligt med kunskap kring hur en utveckling av cykelinfrastrukturen skall se ut. För att vår framtida cykelinfrastruktur ska planeras på ett optimalt sätt krävs en ökad förståelse för cyklisternas preferenser. Målet med denna studie har varit att förstå vad pendlingscyklister föredrar, egentligen.

    För att studera detta har pendlingscyklisterna analyserats både utifrån deras uttryckta värderingar och hur de agerar när de cyklar. Resultaten av de två olika angreppsätten har sedan jämförts för att se om resultaten stämmer överens eller om de skiljer sig åt. Utifrån observationen tyder resultatet på att pendlingscyklisterna tar omvägar, vilket kan förklaras utifrån att förutsättningarna längs de observerade rutterna och de kortaste cykelbara rutterna skiljer sig. De två angreppsättens resultat tenderar att korrelera, men de stämmer inte alltid överens. Inga skillnader av deltagarnas uttryckta värderingar eller observerade agerande upptäcktes utifrån de undersökta demografiska egenskaperna.

    Att kombinera observationer med hjälp av GPS med en enkätundersökning är ett användbart angreppsätt för att analysera pendlingscyklisters preferenser. En ökad förståelse för vad pendlingscyklister egentligen föredrar kan förbättra möjligheterna för planerare att utveckla en optimal cykelinfrastruktur. Det skulle minska pendlingscyklisternas omvägar, vilket troligtvis är en samhällsekonomisk vinst.

    Arbetskraftens rörlighet och kunskapsspridning i kluster: exemplet IT- och telekomföretag i Kista2006Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Rapporten analyserar rörlighet på en specialiserad arbetsmarknad genom en studie av kunskapsföretag verksamma inom IT- och telekomklustret i Kista. Frågor som undersöks är företagens inställning till arbetskraftsrörlighet, rörlighetens roll för spridning av kunskap inom klustret samt förekomsten av eventuella oskrivna regler som hindrar eller underlättar rörlighet. Inom ramen för studien har informanter från tjugo företag intervjuats. Rapporten ger följaktligen en inblick i hur klusterföretagen själva resonerar och agerar kring arbetskraftsrörlighet. Utgångspunkten är att det teoretiskt sett finns anledning att tro att kluster, det vill säga geografiska koncentrationer av företag, kan bidra till att öka arbetskraftens rörlighet genom att erbjuda ett stort utbud av både arbetsgivare med likartade krav och specialiserad arbetskraft. Hög rörlighet skulle medföra effektiv kunskapsspridning inom klustret.

    Studien visar att Kistaföretagen i många fall betraktar låg rörlighet som en positiv företeelse. De företag som på ett generellt plan förespråkade hög rörlighet implementerade inte heller några konkreta åtgärder för att öka den. En slutsats som dras är därmed, för det första, att företagen associerar arbetskraftens rörlighet med risker för det egna företaget. För det andra var företagen generellt sett nöjda med lokaliseringen till Kista, men ansåg sällan att den var till nytta i en rekryteringssituation eller hade inte övervägt saken. Många företag, i synnerhet de små, rekryterade ny arbetskraft genom personliga nätverk, som man menade är bransch- snarare än platsspecifika. Emellertid hade samtliga företag någon eller flera viktiga relationer med andra Kistaföretag, vilka ibland resulterade i personalutbyte. Det är därmed troligt att rörligheten på Kistas arbetsmarknad är högre än företagen är medvetna om. För det tredje sågs rörlighet som ett effektivt verktyg till att öka företagens kunskapsbas, men inte det vanligaste på grund av de kostnader som är förknippade med detta. Bland annat uppgav ett flertal företag, särskilt tjänsteproducenter, att det existerar en hederskodex inom den egna branschen, som förhindrar rekrytering av arbetskraft från vissa kund- eller partnerföretag.

    Boundaries of Knowledge: Foreign-Local Knowledge Exchange through Community Cooperation in Rural Guatemala2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies the learning process between foreign and local knowledge in a community of organic farmers by the name Atitlán Organics in Tzununa, rural Guatemala. Foreign settlers with formal education and contemporary farming experience work alongside indigenous local Guatemalan farmers in this community, which also takes on international volunteer workers. These people of various background and differing intentions cooperate to develop the community and its business of organic food production while learning from each other. The foreigners bring global theories that relate to farming such as permaculture designs and scientific knowledge while the Guatemalans know the local land and how to work with it. This thesis outlines the learning process between these different competencies and presents a nuanced discussion on how these types of knowledge exchange can be beneficial for the people and the community. Diverse competencies can complement each other and enhance collaborative work but limitations can also occur due to difficulties of understanding other socio-cultural contexts, while risks of neo-colonial tendencies and western knowledge hegemony lure in these situations. The discussion in this thesis highlights the importance of mutual consciousness about this process in the community and what that can be done to enhance collaborative learning while avoiding such risks.

    Ett företags lokaliseringsfaktorer inom import av matvaror: En kvalitativ studie om La Collinas kundrelationer, konkurrenter och exportörer2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studies syfte är att undersöka förhållandena och utmaningarna för import av matvaror av ett företag som heter La Collina. Där förhållanden mellan exportörer, kunder och konkurrenter studeras. Studien genomsyras av sitt geografiska förhållningsätt där jag sökt förklaringar till La Collinas förhållning till sin verksamma miljö. Via ett kvalitativt metodval där jag byggt studien på basis av intervjumaterial har jag sökt och besvarat min frågeställning med hjälp av teoretiska begrepp som jag ansett vara passande för att undersöka min frågeställning. De resultat jag kommit fram till i studien är av olika art. Där både svårigheter att hitta goda samarbetspartners av transporteringen av varor, som var en av de huvudsakliga utmaningarna, liksom att hitta passande personal att anställa var en annan svårighet företaget stötte på. Det starka behovet av att etablera sig i närhet till en utvecklad infrastruktur och liksom kontakten till kunder var faktorer som avgör var La Collina valt att lokalisera sig och även var de väljer att utveckla sin verksamhet.

    Abstract [en]

    Hällefors is one of the municipalities in Sweden attempting to break free from the traditional corporate structure. While it has a long history of iron and steel production, technology-based industry is now being supplemented by investment in cultural, culinary and design projects. The aim of this chapter is first to chart the progress of the municipality toward sustainable development and secondly to investigate whether there have been any fundamental changes made to the system. This means that we shall consider the adoption of a path-dependent trend and formative instances in local development processes, with a neo-institutional framework as our theoretical guide. One major discovery is that the term ”sustainable development” crops up constantly in daily dialogue and practical application; it appears in municipal strategic and policy declarations, in both preliminary and comprehensive documents, and in sector-oriented programmes. Yet despite the fact that there is clear evidence of sustainable-development thinking, it has not replaced previous models of local development. Although the concept has become familiar, it is not possible to say whether it has actually contributed to fundamental institutional change on the local level.

    The Complex Interactions between Cities and Nature2016Ingår i: Quality Innovation Prosperity, ISSN 1335-1745, E-ISSN 1338-984XArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Purpose: Proximity to nature is highly valued by urbanites. They demonstrate higher willingness to pay for housing at locations near open and green spaces. But, nature in cities can generate negative externalities as well. The aim of this paper is to present the complex relationship between nature and cities and the possible negative influence of urban nature on property prices.

    Methodology/Approach: The data presented in this paper include open spaces, the presence of wild animals and residential property values in Haifa, Israel. These data were analyzed to uncover spatial regularities and basic statistical relationships.

    Findings: The results reveal the expected presence of dominant positive externalities related to proximity to open and green areas. However, in certain areas and under certain circumstances, the nuisances generated by the presence of wild animals in close proximity to housing are correlated with lower property prices.

    Research Limitation/implication: We demonstrate in this paper that that there is a complex relationship between nature and cities, albeit focusing our analysis on large mammals in cities only. Disentangling positive and negative externalities of urban nature is a challenging task. The paper presents an example of the potential difficulties that need to be dealt with in such analysis.

    Originality/Value of paper: Through the case study, we show that there are good reasons to believe that there are both positive and negative externalities of nature in cities. To our best knowledge, attempts to disentangle both types of effects using property values do not exist in the literature.

    Entrepreneurship in the Fashion Industry: A Case Study of Slow Fashion Businesses2014Ingår i: Beyond Frames. Dynamics between the creative industries, knowledge institutions and the urban context / [ed] A. Schramme, G. Hagoort and R. Kooyman (eds.), Delft: Eburon Academic Publishers. , 2014, s. 73-79Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we explore entrepreneurship in the slow fashion industry at a time of significant restructuring in the global fashion industry. Drawing on a case study of self-­‐employed designers in the slow fashion industry in Geneva (Switzerland), Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Toronto (Canada), we argue that small, slow fashion businesses, through their innovative design, branding and retail practices, have carved out a unique niche in the hyper competitive fashion marketplace. In particular, we demonstrate that they have a very innovative approach to sustainability, characterized by an interest toward the use of salvage materials, the revalorization of craftsmanship, as well as a tendency for handmade productions. Driven by personal beliefs and values, these designers seem to wish to reconcile personal fulfillment with professional achievement as they seek to compete with the paradigm of fast fashion that continues to dominate the fashion industry. This paper contributes to our understanding of the entrepreneurial practices of emerging designers, in particular in the slow fashion industry. It also contributes to the emerging studies in fashion and design-­‐oriented industries that consider the value craftsmanship and the wish to “stay local”, predicting a rise or return of the makers and small-­‐scale manufacturing in contemporary cities.

    An “Orphan” Creative Industry: Exploring the Institutional Factors Constraining the Canadian Fashion Industry2017Ingår i: Growth and Change, ISSN 0017-4815, E-ISSN 1468-2257, Vol. 48, nr 4, s. 942-962Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, tier-two fashion countries have been making gains in the global fashion industry, with hip young brands, buzz-worthy fashion weeks and export-oriented designers. The Canadian fashion industry, on the other hand, continues to fall behind and instead has experienced recent high-profile closures of leading domestic fashion names. This paper explores why this is the case by considering a wide range of factors from a historical and institutional perspective. We argue that Canadian fashion is facing a number of systemic problems relating to wider institutional and policy weaknesses, rather than a lack of talent and know-how within the entrepreneurs and businesses in the sector. While the fashion industry is indeed global, we argue that it is in fact national and local level factors—political, economic, and cultural—that structure and constrain the Canadian fashion industry for independent designers. Through exploring the experiences of this group of actors—entrepreneurial fashion designers—in this particular context, we not only learn about Canada as an economy but also what is needed in order to develop the fashion industry more broadly. We provide a framework for analysing the range of socio-economic, historical, and political factors at the national level which affect the performance of the fashion sector and the operation of fashion designers as the entrepreneurial actors at the heart of the industry.

    Creative Distraction: The Digital Transformation of the Advertising Industry2009Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is primarily based on a case study on how the Internet affects the advertising industry in Oslo, Norway, and on how the digitization of advertising adds to our understanding of the geography of innovation and urban and regional development. The study argues that the Internet fundamentally changes and challenges the advertising industry, and that advertising merges into market communication and even user experience and product development. The interactive nature of the Internet and its parallel social and commercial worlds contribute to transcend the role of a traditional medium and to coalescence between production and consumption. Despite the fact that those involved in online and traditional advertising are located close to each other in Oslo, the extent of collective learning, knowledge externalities and innovation has been scarce. The study shows that the creative destruction of this industrial sector is ignited by actors outside the traditional advertising industry. Due to path dependency along one-way mass communication media incumbents within the advertising industry have left room for new actors, such as web agencies and technology consultants, to explore and take market share in online market communication services. The reconfiguration of market communication is regarded as the result of an industry mutation across advertising and ICT, and creates a need for bridging skills and competencies across creative, strategic and interactive domains. The implications of such an industry mutation across diverse sectors are used to discuss the evolutionary potential of the related variety perspective. The study argues that localized industrial change may be conceptualised in terms of a cyclical relationship between externalities from localisation economies and urbanisation economies respectively. The implications of the findings from the case study are in this way used to discuss more general drivers of urban and regional development.

    Abstract [en]

    The advertising industry is often seen as adaptable and flexible, and its work organisation and diverse project ecologies are assumed to nurture creativity, learning and innovation. The advertising industry in Oslo is currently going through a restructuring process of adapting to the Internet as an emerging media channel for marketing, but struggles to benefit from collective learning. The established advertising agencies have been reluctant regarding the new opportunities in Internet-based advertising, which has allowed for a set of smaller and specialized web agencies to emerge, and who now possess the best skills within interactive advertising. The paper argues that there are two parallel epistemic communities in the localized advertising industry. It is shown that the advertising industry seems to have been caught in a path dependent technological trajectory, and that in order for collective learning to unfold geographical proximity needs to be supplemented by cultural and epistemic proximity and compatibility.

    Abstract [en]

    The advertising industry is currently undergoing a restructuring process, where traditional media like TV and print are being complemented and replaced by interactive advertising and market communication on the Internet. The paper discusses how this transformation process affects the structure and organisation of services within Internet-based market communication. Based on interviews with 50 respondents from advertising and beyond the paper argues that the multiple and interactive nature of the Internet medium represent opportunities and challenges for the advertising agencies that transcend their traditional role as developers of creative ideas and campaigns. It is argued that Internet-based market communication demands a convergence of creative, strategic and technical services which represents a new production and market communication space in which the end consumer plays a lead role. The paper suggests that technology driven transformation processes in the industrial agglomerations of advertising and ICT in Oslo can be viewed as an industrial mutation.

    (Engelska)Manuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the distinction of the notion of diversity into related and unrelated, the related variety approach represents an interesting attempt to improve our understanding of industrial dynamics and economic growth. However, using the insights from a case study on Internet based market communication this study seeks to problematize how the related variety approach so far may be read as a somewhat static approach. Through a sample of businesses that offer services within Internet-based market communication, the study uncovers the range of actors who are de facto related to each other within these economic activities. This simple exercise reveals that actors who are de facto related would have been categorised as unrelated in the related variety approach. These actors used to be unrelated, but due to convergence of existing and new technologies they have become related. In this way the paper not only aims to document how this particular industrial field is developing, it also suggests that the related variety approach does not take into account how changing technological conditions continuously alter the composition of related and unrelated actors in the economy. The related variety approach may thus still have a potential to improve its ability to reflect actual relations among industrial actors in its analytical apparatus. The paper suggests alternative indicators that to a larger extent may be tackling how technological change constantly alters the degree of relatedness between various actors.

    Abstract [en]

    The creative class thesis put forward by Florida (2002a) has in recent years been subject to vivid debate and criticism. This article applies the creative class thesis onto a Nordic context in order to examine whether Florida’s theory proves fruitful in a context different from the US. Based on qualitative data, the paper analyses the role of people climate and business climate for the location of the creative class and firms in three different kinds of regions in four Nordic countries. The analyses demonstrate that the people climate tends to be of secondary importance to the business climate in explaining the location of the Nordic creative class. This should be seen as a result of the urban hierarchy within the Nordic countries as well as a strong welfare policy, which ensures an equal distribution of public provision and supports dual career households. Together these factors diminish the role of people climate for location choices. The study also finds that the notion of people climate has different meanings in various places, and what attracts or repels the creative class depends on the life phases of the members of the creative class. The study raises concerns about the potential for applying the creative class approach beyond large city regions which limits its usability in regional planning.

    Implementation of forest certification in Sweden: an issue of organisation and communication2014Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research, ISSN 0282-7581, E-ISSN 1651-1891, Vol. 29, nr 5, s. 473-484Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The goal of nature conservation is often implemented on productive forest land largely by means of forest certification a market-driven, voluntary system of third-party verification of the fulfilment of specific goals. This study assesses how certification requirements are being implemented in various organisations in the forest sector at various levels, and the problems and opportunities identified at each level in order to implement the requirements of the standard. Based on interviews with 34 stakeholders in Sweden, the study demonstrates that forest certification is a communication issue: it places great demands on communication or "information logistics" between different parts of the felling and forest management chain, from the top management to the contractor in the field. Integration with environmental performance systems, clarity in the division of responsibility, formalisation of requirements for forest planning and further integration of a culture of continuous improvement and internal reporting could support implementation of the certification system.

    Competition, Law, and the Power of (Imagined) Geography: Market Definition and the Emergence of Too-Big-to-Fail Banking in the United States2014Ingår i: Economic Geography, ISSN 0013-0095, E-ISSN 1944-8287, Vol. 90, nr 4, s. 429-450Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of antitrust (or competition) law in the recent historical evolution of the U. S. commercial banking sector. A core component of antitrust law is the calculative practice of market definition, which involves identifying not only the product or service attributes of a market but also, pointedly, its geographic extent. Geographic market definition-and the geographic knowledges it furnishes-is the focus of the article. It argues that these legal market maps ("the law's markets," that is to say) materially shape on-the-ground market and competitive realities. The article develops this argument through a study of the recent history of U. S. antitrust theory and practice in regard to commercial banking. It claims that the particular nature of the geographic models created through this practice is pivotal to explaining the history of evolution of that sector in the final decades of the twentieth century-and most especially, large-scale industry consolidation at the national scale. In the process, the article aims to contribute not only to financial geography but also to three relatively-underdeveloped economicgeographic literatures: on the implication of geographic knowledges in political-economic change; on the geographies of markets; and on the role of the law in economic-geographic transformation.

    From financialization to finance: For ‘de-financialization’2015Ingår i: Dialogues in Human Geography, ISSN 2043-8206, E-ISSN 2043-8214, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 229-232Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this response to the commentaries, I extend my critique in a new direction, arguing that work on financialization has had the perverse effect of black boxing ‘finance’ and crucial dimensions thereof. In developing this argument, I draw explicitly on, while seeking to generalize from, incisive observations contained in the commentaries. In doing so, I argue that it is important to address limits to financialization—political limits—not identified and addressed in the original article.

    Geographies of finance III: Regulation and 'after-crisis' financial futures2016Ingår i: Progress in Human Geography, ISSN 0309-1325, E-ISSN 1477-0288, Vol. 40, nr 1, s. 138-148Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We are now not far short of a decade on from the start of the global financial crisis. By most reckonings, those regions most directly affected by the crisis, and most people living therein, are still struggling to recover from and to come to terms with that crisis. But there already exists a burgeoning literature on the next great financial crisis: on, that is to say, what has - or, more pointedly, has not - been done to prevent such a reoccurrence, to limit its likelihood, or to restrict its potential scope. This literature, and in particular its discussion of financial (re) regulation, is the subject of this article. Through a critical reading of the literature the article argues that positive (re) regulation has been inhibited by the power of the financial sector to stymie meaningful reform, and that this power assumes highly material geographical configurations. The article also emphasizes the profound influence of economic ideas on financial policy-making. One idea that perhaps needs thorough critical reconsideration, the article concludes, is that of financial regulation itself.

    Risk capital:: Urban political ecology and entanglements of financial and environmental risk in Washington, D.C.2018Ingår i: Environment and Planning E: Nature and Space, ISSN 2514-8494, Vol. 1, nr 1-2, s. 144-164Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    n endeavouring to deal with a longstanding problem of contamination of waterways in Washington, D.C. due to combined sewer overflows, the responsible utility, DC Water, has recently embarked on a two-fold, simultaneous ‘greening’ – firstly of the physical infrastructures being installed to address the overflow problem, and secondly of the financing of this capital investment. This article examines DC Water’s turn to green infrastructure and green bonds in order to consider the question of how environmental and financial processes in general – and environmental and financial risks in particular – co-determine not just one another but the transformation of contemporary urban socioecological landscapes more broadly. In the process, it aims to inject a greater sensibility both to finance and to ‘green capitalism’ into urban political ecology. Through a critical consideration of the interlocking temporal, spatial and monetary dimensions of DC Water’s two-fold greening project, the article shows that this project has served significantly to augment levels of environmental and financial risk, entangling them in significant new ways.

    The limits to financialization2015Ingår i: Dialogues in Human Geography, ISSN 2043-8206, E-ISSN 2043-8214, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 183-200Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decade, the concept of financialization has moved from the periphery to the mainstream of scholarly inquiry across several social–scientific disciplines, human geography among them. The subject of a burgeoning, variegated literature advancing both theoretical delineation and empirical substantiation, processes of financialization, on many accounts, belong alongside those of globalization and neoliberalization as the defining dynamics of late modern capitalism. In the spirit of fostering a constructive dialogue, this article develops a broadly based critique of such accounts, one structured around the core idea of limits. Financialization, it suggests, is substantively limited, both as a concept and as the array of real-world processes to which that concept variously pertains. The article identifies and fleshes out five key sets of such limits and the connections between them: analytic, theoretic, strategic, optic, and empiric limits. If the concept of financialization is to do substantially positive descriptive and explanatory work going forward, the article submits, these limits must be explicitly recognized and their implications explicitly factored in. This, the article concludes, is no small challenge.

    Resisting devaluation: Foreclosure, eminent domain law, and the geographical political economy of risk2016Ingår i: Environment and planning A, ISSN 0308-518X, E-ISSN 1472-3409, Vol. 48, nr 3, s. 485-503Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines recent plans for US municipalities to use the state legal power of eminent domain to forcibly acquire underwater mortgages (i.e. those with negative equity), and to refinance them on terms more favorable to the homeowners in question, as a way of addressing in a socially progressive way the nation's ongoing foreclosure crisis. The article makes three main arguments. The first is that insofar as the plan threatens to disrupt prevailing norms of value distribution and risk bearing, it represents a fundamental challenge to the existing political economy of urban financial capitalism in the US and the law's mediation thereof. The second is that value, risk, and their mediation through law must be understood in the context of geographical unevenness and shifting scales of legal governance. The third is that the geographical political economy associated with the eminent domain plan is about discoursesof risk, of markets, and indeed of law per seno less than materialities; and that the two are indelibly linked, with discourses having material effects when, through law, they structure value and risk for the manifold actors who operate within the sphere of housing finance.
