    Decreaseing turnout - a blessing or a curse?2010Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents empirical tests of one of the conclusions from Bryan Caplan's 2007 book The Myth of the Rational Voter. Caplan claims that voters suffer from systematic biases about economic policy that through elections affects economic policy negatively. I derive three hypotheses from Caplan's theory and test them on a cross-country panel of 19 countries covering the time 1973 to 2009. The hypotheses stipulate that increased turnout lead to lower economic freedom, lower levels of foreign aid and higher inflation. After controlling for country specific effects turnout does not seem to have the effect stipulated in the three hypotheses.

    Höga skatter eller fria val?: - En uppsats om sambandet mellan demokrati, skatter och inkomstfördelning2009Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen studerar sambanden mellan de tre variablerna demokrati, inkomstfördelning och skatter. Utifrån olika tidigare teorier och forskning skapas två hypoteser vars motsättning ligger i det kausala sambandet mellan demokrati och skatter. Eftersom båda hypoteserna utgår från ett samband mellan demokratigrad och skattekvot å ena sida och inkomstfördelning å andra sidan undersöks detta först. Sedan testas det kausala sambandet mellan demokrati och skatter genom ett test inspirerat av Grangers kausalitetstest. Hypoteserna testas genom statistiska undersökningar på paneldata ifrån 52 olika länder. Vi kommer i uppsatsen fram till att en ökad grad av demokrati orsakar högre inkomstskatter, och inte tvärtom.

    HIV/AIDS och ekonomisk tillväxt: En teoretisk diskussion utifrån neoklassisk tillväxtteori med fokus på relationen mellan HIV/AIDS, kapital och ekonomisk tillväxttakt i södra och östra Afrika2006Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats
    Abstract [es]

    I denna uppsats utreds effekterna av HIV/AIDS på tillväxt i södra och östra Afrika. Detta sker via en teoretisk undersökning av effekterna på fysiskt, humant och socialt kapital som är tre viktiga bakomliggande faktorer som påverkar ekonomisk tillväxt. Resultatet av studien är att HIV/AIDS troligen har negativ verkan på alla dessa tre typer av kapital, men att det är effekterna på humant och socialt kapital som får långsiktiga ekonomiska följder i form av lägre ekonomisk tillväxttakt i länderna i fråga.

    The matching process in the Swedish labour market: A study of the matching efficiency´s development over time and the regional differences2015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Estimate the matching efficiency on the Swedish labour market to see how it has developed over time as well as determine whether there are any regional differences. I will use a panel data set extending from January 1996 to December 2014 on county level.

    Method: Estimate labour market matching functions with a fixed effects model including dummy variables for each county, year and month in order to capture the region and time fixed effects.

    Result: The results indicate that the labour market matching process has impaired during recent years where a significant decrease occurred between the years 2004 and 2005. Since then, the matching efficiency has continued to decrease, thus implying that structural changes have occurred in the labour market. The regional differences in matching efficiency between the Swedish counties still exist when comparing the results to previous studies’ conclusions. Blekinge continues to be in the bottom with the lowest matching efficiency whilst Jämtland is still in the lead. The biggest decrease can be seen in Gotland. Some minor improvements have occurred, mainly amongst the big city counties.

    Are There Any Variables Not Yet Tested That Can Help Explain Real Estate Price Variation?: -An econometric analysis of real estate prices in Stockholm2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The purpose of this study is to find new variables that can help explain the variation in the prices of apartments in the county of Stockholm.

    Method: By using recreated variables from an existing model created by Claussen, Jonsson and Lagerwall (2011) on behalf of Sweden’s central bank, and adding new variables obtained by the realtor Erik Olsson and the housing ad website Hemnet, the goal is to find a model that explains as much of the price variation as possible. The accuracy of the model is tested by an out-of- sample forecast. The study is based on monthly data for the years 2008 up until February 2013 and is written in cooperation with Valueguard.

    Findings: By combining the two data sets the adjusted coefficient of determination was 0,703, which means that 70,3% of the variation in the prices can be explained by the model.

    Kön i toppen av inkomstfördelningen: Glastaket, Skandinavien och Europa.2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen testas två teser: om det finns belägg för ett glastak bland 17 Europeiska länder och om detta glastak kan sägas vara starkare i Skandinavien än på kontinenten. Uppsatsen utreder sannolikheten att ingå de tio olika inkomstdecilerna med fokus på individer längst upp i inkomstfördelningen med hjälp av ca 60 000 observationer ur datamaterialet PIAAC (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies). Sannolikheten testas med två regressionsmodeller, en linjär och en multinominell logaritmisk regression. Resultatet bekräftar förekomsten av ett glastak och att detta tak är starkare i Skandinavien. När samma tests görs för varje enskilt land är resultatet att fler Europeiska länder än de Skandinaviska har ett "tjockare glastak" vilket skulle innebära att det inte är fruktsamt att definiera det Skandinaviska glastaket som ett unikt fenomen i förhållande till glastak på kontinenten.

    Samverkan i Resursteam: effekter på organisation, hälsa och sjukskrivning2008Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi utvärderar samverkansformen Resursteam, som bedrivits som ett försök för att minska långa sjukskrivningar. Resursteam innebär att ett team med hand-läggare från Försäkringskassan, husläkare, sjukgymnast och beteendevetare, vid regelbundna möten bedömer sjukskrivna personers rehabiliteringsbehov och ger förslag på åtgärder. Det övergripande syftet är att skatta effekten av Resursteam på den försäkrades sjukskrivningslängd och självskattade hälsa. Vi har genomfört (i) en kartläggning av verksamheten, (ii) en enkätstudie till sjuk-skrivna som deltagit i Resursteam och till jämförelsepersoner samt (ii) skattat effekten av Resursteam på självskattad hälsa och sjukskrivning. Resultaten är entydiga och visar på inga eller negativa effekter för de personer som ingått i Resursteam. Som exempel kan nämnas att tiden i sjukskrivning förlängs med cirka 20 procent i genomsnitt.

    Dreams of urbanization: Quantitative case studies on the local impacts of nuclear power facilities using the synthetic control method2015Ingår i: Journal of Urban Economics, ISSN 0094-1190, E-ISSN 1095-9068, Vol. 85, s. 68-85Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses the synthetic control (SC) method to examine how the establishment of nuclear power facilities (NPFs) in Japan in the 1970s and 1980s has affected local per capita income levels in the municipalities in which they were localted (NPF municipalities). Eight quantitative case studies using the SC method clarify that the effects of NPF establishment on per capita taxable income levels are highly heterogeneous. The estimated effects are often economically meaningful and in some cases huge: the income level was 11% higher on average and 62% higher in one municipality in 2002 when compared with counterfactual units. On the other hand a few of the NPF municipalities have received only weak or negligible effects from NPF establishment. The post-estimation comparisons of employment between the NPF municipalities and the SC units suggest that the size of the direct labor demand shocks and subsequent indirect employment effects on nontradable service sectors have contributed to the increase in per capita income levels.

    Essays on the Evaluation of Public Policies2015Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of four self-contained papers.

    Essay 1: This paper uses the synthetic control (SC) method to examine how the establishment of Nuclear Power Facilities (NPFs) in Japan in the 1970s and 1980s has affected local per capita income levels in the municipalities in which they were located (NPF municipalities). Eight quantitative case studies using the SC method clarify that the effects of NPF establishment on per capita taxable income levels are highly heterogeneous. The estimated effects are often economically meaningful and in some cases huge: the income level was 11% higher on average and 62% higher in one municipality in 2002 when compared with counterfactual units. On the other hand a few of the NPF municipalities have received only weak or negligible effects from NPF establishment. The post-estimation comparisons of employment between the NPF municipalities and the SC units suggest that the size of the direct labor demand shocks and subsequent indirect employment effects on nontradable service sectors have contributed to the increase in per capita income levels.

    Essay 2: In a regression kink (RK) design with a finite sample, a confounding smooth nonlinear relationship between an assignment variable and an outcome variable around a threshold can be spuriously picked up as a kink and result in a biased estimate. In order to investigate how well RK designs handle such confounding nonlinearity, I firstly implement Monte Carlo simulations and then study the effect of fiscal equalization grants on local expenditure in Japan using an RK design. Results in both the Monte Carlo simulations and the empirical application suggest that RK estimation without covariates can be easily biased, and this problem can be mitigated by adding basic covariates to the regressors. On the other hand, a smaller bandwidth or a higher order polynomial, even a quadratic polynomial, tends to result in imprecise estimates although they may be able to reduce estimation bias. In sum, RK estimation with a confounding nonlinearity often suffers from bias or imprecision and estimates are credible only when relevant covariates are controlled for.

    Essay 3: This paper investigates the effects of fiscal equalization grants on total expenditure and disaggregated expenditures by exploiting two different formula-based exogenous variations in grants. Examining the institutional settings of the Japanese fiscal equalization scheme and estimating local average grant effects with a regression kink design and an instrumental variable approach, I demonstrate that there exist heterogeneous grant effects for two groups of municipalities with different fiscal conditions. That is, estimated grant effects on total expenditure are approximately one-to-one for municipalities around the threshold of grant eligibility, but much more than one-to-one for municipalities that are heavily dependent on fiscal equalization grants. In addition, grant effects on disaggregated expenditures are dispersed across different expenditure items in the former type of municipality but concentrated on construction expenditures in the latter type. I then discuss that the observed grant effect heterogeneity is a consequence of the institutional settings of the Japanese fiscal equalization scheme.

    Essay 4 (with Reo Takaku): We evaluate the impact of patient cost sharing on the use of dentures and subjective chewing ability exploiting a sharp reduction in the coinsurance rate, the percentage of costs born by the user, from 30% to 10% at the age of 70 with a regression discontinuity design. Using data from the Japanese Study of Aging and Retirement (JSTAR), we find that the utilization rate of dentures increases from approximately 50% to 63% around the threshold, implying that the extensive margin elasticity of denture usage with respect to the coinsurance rate is about -0.41. In addition, we find this jump is almost entirely due to the change in the rate among women. On the other hand, we do not find a significant improvement in self-reported chewing ability. Our empirical findings are also confirmed by complementary analysis with randomization tests and placebo randomization tests.

    Exchange Rates, Exports, Inflation, and International Monetary Cooperation2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of three self-contained essays.

     

    Essay I: Exchange rate movements often cause anxiety among policy-makers, given the strong link between currency movements and export competitiveness, which may, in turn, affect economic growth. In this paper, I examine the strength of the effect of exchange rate movements on exports combining firm-level export data with an industry-level competitiveness index. The data span a broad sample of countries, comprising 21 advanced and 21 emerging market economies over the period 1989-2013. My findings suggest an economically and statistically significant negative effect of real appreciation on real exports. The effect is significantly larger for emerging markets as compared to advanced economies. ​Additionally, the results suggest that larger firms are particularly affected by exchange rate movements.

    Essay II: Simulations of a small open economy model à la Gali and Monacelli (2005) suggest that inflation should display similar levels, but higher volatility and higher persistence under a fixed exchange rate regime compared to a regime with a flexible exchange rate and some form of inflation targeting. I test these predictions using data for two clearly defined exchange rate regimes. One regime is the membership in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), which implies an irrevocably fixed exchange rate. The other is a flexible exchange rate with inflation targeting. The empirical analysis confirms the theoretical implications of the model in terms of persistence: inflation displays a higher degree of persistence in countries with a fixed exchange rate regime.

    Essay III (with Beatrice Scheubel): While the consequences and effectiveness of IMF conditionality have long constituted the focus of research, the possible negative impact of IMF conditionality on countries' willingness to start an IMF program has mainly focused on a country's own past experience. However, the recent policy debate has highlighted the existence of regional effects, unrelated to a country's own experience. In this paper, we investigate how past experience with IMF conditionality – own and peers' – affects countries' likelihood of signing an IMF arrangement again. Our results indicate strong learning from own experience, but hardly any learning from peers, except for members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). We conjecture that a negative effect associated with IMF conditionality may exist for individual country cases or specific regions, but that a more general effect cannot be related to observing how the IMF treats peers.

    The Effect of Growth on the Capital Stock: Comparing the Predictions of Piketty’s Second Law to Solow and Ramsey2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I look at the connection between the steady-state growth rate and the Capital/Income ratio. The focus in particular is on how Piketty’s second fundamental law of capitalism differs from the conventional Solow and Ramsey models as well as how well it fits with statistical data. My conclusion is that the second fundamental law exhibits a substantial difference compared to the other two in how the Capital/Income ratio, Gross Savings rate and Net Savings rate are affected by a change in the rate of growth. It does not appear to be consistent with the data either from the Pennsylvania World Tables database or Piketty’s own statistics both of which are more similar to the Solow and Ramsey models’ predictions.

    Essays on Unit-Root Testing and on Discrete-Response Modelling of Firm Mergers2006Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Essay 1 investigates the time-series properties of the price of iron ore. The focus is on unit-root testing in the presence of a structural break. Unit-root tests with or without structural breaks are applied to historical prices of five different qualities of Swedish and Brazilian iron ore. Tests with exogenous or endogenous breaks are analyzed. Using unit-root tests allowing for an exogenous structural break in 1973, the year of the oil-price shock, the null hypothesis of a unit root is rejected for three of the five series. The sign and nature of the estimated breaks correspond to the state of the iron and steel industry during the oil-price shock.

    Essay 2 was co-authored with Rolf Larsson and deals with the issue of unit-root tests involving several parameters of the model. In a first order autoregressive model with drift or drift and trend, we derive the likelihood ratio test for a unit root against the stationary alternative. We also derive the test in a state space model with trend. Finite sample and asymptotic critical values are obtained by Monte Carlo simulations, and we examine the power performance of the likelihood ratio test.

    Essay 3 proposes a way to model firm mergers using the roommate matching game, whereby firms make preference rankings of potential merger partners. Given firms' preferences, game-theoretic mechanisms lead to a matching implying that each firm is either self-matched or assigned a merger partner. We derive expressions for the probability of a merger between a specific firm pair, and also a log-likelihood function for estimation using firm-specific data. The model's finite-sample properties are examined.

    The roommate game results in a complicated log-likelihood function, which places restrictions on the number of firms. Consequently, the model proposed in Essay 4 defines a different set of game rules. Using a mechanism of bid proposals among firms, we define a condition for firm acquisitions in terms of profit index comparisons. The resulting log-likelihood function is applicable to any number of firms, and the acquisition model is estimated on a panel data set consisting of European firms from the pulp and paper industry.

    Modelling Firm Mergers As A Roommate Problem2006Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    We propose a way to model firm mergers using a matching game known as the roommate problem, whereby firms are assumed to make preference rankings of po- tential merger partners. The position of a firm in another firm’s ranking is assumed to be governed by an index, which in turn consists of a deterministic part and of a stochastic one, similar to the latent indices used in standard discrete-choice models. Given all firms’ preferences, game-theoretic mechanisms lead to a matching whereby each firm is either self-matched or assigned a merger partner. We derive expressions for the probability of a merger between a specific firm pair, and also a log-likelihood function for estimation using firm-specific data. Using a simulation in a setting with groups of three firms involved in roommate games within each group, the model’s finite-sample properties are examined.

    Structural Breaks In Iron-Ore Prices: The Impact Of The 1973 Oil Crisis2006Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the time-series properties of the price of iron ore. The focus is on testing a unit-root null hypothesis against a trend-stationary alternative, with a structural break allowed under both hypotheses. We consider unit-root tests with or without structural breaks, applied on historical prices of five different qualities of Swedish and Brazilian iron ore. New and more accurate critical values for the exogenous-break tests are calculated, and several of the asymptotic tests are accompanied by their bootstrap counterparts due to the limited sample sizes.

    Using unit-root tests allowing for an exogenous structural break in 1973, the null hypothesis of a unit root is rejected for three of the five series. The sign and nature of the estimated breaks correspond to the state of the iron and steel industry during the first half of the 1970s. The bootstrap tests give results close to those from the asymptotic ones.

    Wage subsidies targeted to jobseekers with disabilities: subsequent employment and disability retirement2018Ingår i: IZA Journal of Labor Policy, ISSN 2193-9004, E-ISSN 2193-9004, Vol. 7, artikel-id UNSP 12Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In many countries, a non-negligible percentage of the working-age population has impairments that also entail reduced work capacity, and disability retirement is increasing. Despite this, studies on the effects of policies aimed at enhancing the labour market inclusion among people with disabilities, such as targeted wage subsidies, are surprisingly few. In an attempt to fill this gap, we have studied how wage subsidies affect future labour market outcomes for jobseekers with disabilities, in terms of employment and disability retirement. By using inverse probability weighting applied to rich Swedish register data, we contrast participants in the wage subsidy program to observably similar non-participants during a 19-year period. We find that participation was associated with both positive and negative labour market outcomes. On the negative side, participants were less likely to have unsubsidised employment. On the positive side, leaving the labour market through the disability insurance program was somewhat less common among participants. Moreover, using a broader employment measure including subsidised jobs, the participants were found to be employed to a larger extent, which could be interpreted either as locking-in effects or as fostering labour market inclusion.

    Practical causal analysis for the treatment timing effect on doubly censored duration: effect of fertility on work span2019Ingår i: Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A (Statistics in Society), ISSN 0964-1998, E-ISSN 1467-985X, Vol. 182, nr 4, s. 1561-1585Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a practical causal framework to estimate the effects of a treatment and its timing on a doubly censored response. We then apply the methodology to find the effect of fertility on work duration where, not just fertility itself, but the timing of fertility should matter greatly. Since fertility and its decision of timing are chosen by the individual, it is likely to be endogenous. We use a populationwide data set over mothers with two children to address the endogeneity issue by using the first two children's same-sex instrument in a 'control function' setting. We find that having a third child reduces the average labour market work duration, and that the magnitude of the effect increases monotonically with the waiting time between the second and third children. Moreover, the negative effect varies substantially over education and second-birth age, being stronger for mothers with higher education and lower second-birth age.

    Abstract [en]

    In a first order autoregressive model with drift, we derive the likelihood ratio test for a unit root against the stationary alternative. We also derive the test in a state space model with trend. Finite sample and asymptotic critical values are obtained by Monte Carlo simulations. A simulation study investigates the power performance of the likelihood ratio test and we also examine how a bias correction of the test affects the results.

    Estimating Taxable Income Responses with Elasticity Heterogeneity2017Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    We explore the implications of heterogeneity in the elasticity of taxable income (ETI) for tax-reform based estimation methods. We theoretically show that existing methods yield elasticities that are biased and lack policy relevance. We illustrate the empirical importance of our theoretical analysis using the NBER tax panel for 1979-1990. We show that elasticity heterogeneity is the main explanation for large differences between estimates in the previous literature. Our preferred, newly suggested method yields elasticity estimates of approximately 0.7 for taxable income and 0.2 for broad income.

    STÅR DEN RIKA VÄRLDEN INFÖR EN FRAMTID UTAN EKONOMISK TILLVÄXT?: En studie om hur storleken på den arbetsföra befolkningen påverkar långsiktig tillväxt i Japan och andra OECD-länder.2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under senare tid har det börjat väckas alltmer oro kring en minskande arbetsför befolkning och en ökande andel äldre i världens industrialiserade länder. I denna uppsats undersöks därför sambandet mellan arbetsför befolkning och tillväxt i OECD-länders bruttonationalprodukt (BNP). Paneldata från 24 länder under perioden 1981-2013 används. Två aspekter är i fokus: förändringar i antalet personer i arbetsför ålder och i andelen arbetsför befolkning i totalbefolkningen. Resultaten tyder på att en minskning av andelen arbetsför befolkning med en procentenhet leder till 0,2-0,4 procentenheters lägre årlig tillväxt i BNP per capita. Vi kan däremot inte påvisa att förändringar i tillväxten i antalet personer i arbetsför ålder påverkar tillväxten per capita. För att illustrera resultatens betydelse tillämpar vi dem på fallet Japan; tillämpningsstudien pekar på att Japan, under perioden 1996-2013, förlorade 0,7 procentenheter i årlig tillväxt i BNP per capita på grund av den demografiska utvecklingen.

    An integrated approach to urban road pricing2005Ingår i: Journal of Transport Economics and Policy, ISSN 0022-5258, E-ISSN 1754-5951, Vol. 38, nr 1, s. 75-92Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses an integrated urban road pricing policy based on an automatic payment system for cars. Like Glazer and Niskanen (2000) it studies congestion tolls with heterogeneous commuters, but focuses on welfare effects and extends their model to include a choice of departure time, as well as travel mode. The author finds that tolls can be welfare improving even if the public transit mode normally used for substitution is also congested. If, for some reason, public transit charges cannot be changed, substitution towards off-peak travel can be stimulated by a combined road toll and parking duties policy made possible by modern automatic vehicle-identification technologies.

    Distributional Side Effects of Tax Policies: An Analysis of Tax Avoidance and Congestion Tolls2004Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of three self-contained essays.

    Essay 1

    This essay examines the effects of tax avoidance on saving and income distribution. In an intertemporal model taxes can be avoided through asset trade. We find that including an avoidance response to taxation will increase all the negative distortions of increased tax progressivity. This result is in contrast to previous findings that tax avoidance can be used to escape some of the negative incentives that a highly progressive tax system leads to. Furthermore, we find that in the presence of tax avoidance measurements of income inequality will be biased downward, since avoidance is more common among the relatively rich. A simulation of a representative economy shows that standard measurements of inequality can be seriously misleading, particularly for economies with relatively high marginal tax rates.

    Essay 2

    The paper analyses an integrated urban road pricing policy based on an automatic payment system for cars. Like Glazer and Niskanen (2000) we study congestion tolls with heterogeneous commuters, but we focus on welfare effects and extend their model to include a choice of departure time, as well as travel mode. We find that tolls can be welfare improving even if the public transit mode normally used for substitution is also congested. If, for some reason, public transit charges cannot be changed, substitution towards off-peak travel can be stimulated by a combined road toll and parking duties policy made possible by modern automatic vehicle-identification technologies.

    Essay 3

    This essay focuses on the distributional impact and political acceptance of congestion tolls, which, we find, will depend on the location of a switch point income level, at which tolls become regressive. The latter, in turn, depends on the relative attractiveness of the car versus the mass transit system. We find that in a European setting, congestion tolls will most likely have a negative effect on the middle classes, while individuals at both tails of the income distribution will find themselves better off. An investment in the public transportation system will increase the number of individuals who would favor a reform involving congestion tolls on the road network. Such investments might therefore be warranted not only for environmental reasons, but also as a means of making an optimal road pricing policy politically acceptable, something which can be useful particularly in developing countries where financing traffic improvements can be difficult.

    Empirical Essays on Procurement and Regulation2002Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Essay 1: This paper reports the results of an empirical analysis of the effect of competitive tendering on road operation and maintenance expenses in Sweden. Contrasts of procurement expenses between operation and maintenance contracts let in competitive tendering and similar sole-sourced contracts indicate that competitive tendering reduces procurement expenses by 22-27 percent. Further, there is no evidence that service quality is lower for tendered contracts than for non-tendered contracts.

    Essay 2: Data on firms’ entries in the Swedish National Road Administration’s procurement auctions of road maintenance are used to estimate what factors determine potential bidders decisions to enter. I find the number of potential bidders to affect the probability for firms to bid. Increasing potential competition tends to decrease the probability of firms participating in the auctions. Other factors affecting entry decisions are firm size, project size, time limit for the submission of bids, and time span of the contracts that are up for tender.

    Essay 3: (With Per Johansson) This paper presents the results of an empirical analysis of the effect of contract form on the costs of road maintenance in Sweden. Firms’ bidding and production behavior under two different contract forms are compared using bid and cost data from the Swedish National Road Administration’s procurement of road operation and maintenance. Both contracts are variants of a fixed-price contract that differ in the extent of risk imposed on firms, and in the incentives for cost reductions they provide. We find evidence of a considerable moral-hazard effect. Thus, contract form affects behavior and hence expenses.

    Essay 4: Yardstick competition is a regulatory mechanism, which, according to theory, could induce efficient price regulation in a whole industry. This paper reports results from a laboratory experiment testing this theory. Specifically, the paper reports the results from an investigation of whether yardstick competition can work in situations with few firms. It is found that the theory of yardstick competition predicts behavior well. The average outcome does, however, depend on the number of participating firms: the yardstick competition model predicts behavior better when the number of firms is four that when they are two.

    Essay 5: I test whether violations of expected utility theory in an Allais Paradox environment are sensitive to payoff size. I find a positive relationship between the fraction of people violating expected utility theory and payoff size.

    Understanding Diversity: How Do Value-Systems of Swedish Civil Society Organizations Affect Their Allocation of Foreign Aid?2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines how officially funded Swedish Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) adhering to certain values and principles choose to allocate aid. With data gathered from the Sida CSO project database, we utilize a Tobit model to outline these patterns. Through separating the CSOs into categories in accordance with their value-systems, we subsequently contrast the results with previous findings. In conclusion, we establish different outcomes for each group. Religious and environmental organizations seem to primarily allocate aid to poorer countries whereas non-specific organizations tend to target more developed countries, responding to indicators of governance. Religious and political organizations show signs of mimicking Sidas aid allocative patterns.

    Climate Information and it's Effects on Demand: Evidence from a Randomized Field Trial in a Swedish Setting2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to estimate information’s capacity in closing the gap between consumers’ expressed preferences for climate protection and observed behavior. A discrepancy between Swedish consumers’ claimed demand for climate certified milk and actual consumption is observed. Consequently, a randomized controlled field trial is devised where information is randomly varied within 17 grocery stores in Uppsala and Stockholm Counties, Sweden. Results suggest, at a ten percent significance level, that consumption of climate certified milk increases with approximately 4.5 percent in the presence of climate information. However, the shift in consumption appears to be temporary as no effects on consumption can be traced after the information has been removed. This implicates that additional information on the climate certification scheme has little potential in permanently closing the gap between consumers’ claimed strong preferences for climate certified milk and observed consumption.

    On environmental taxation under uncertainty1999Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses optimal taxation, when the relationship between consumption and environmental damage is uncertain and treated as a random variable by policy makers. The main purpose is to analyze how additional uncertainty about this relationship affects the optimal unit tax on the consumption good that is causing environmental damage. We find that the optimal response to this tax depends on (i) the attitudes towards risk and (ii) how other policy instruments affect the demand for the good that is causing damage to the environment.

    This paper addresses transboundary environmental problems in the context of an optimal tax problem, when part of the labor force is mobile across countries. The policy instruments include both commodity taxation and nonlinear income taxation. We show how the tax policy in a noncooperative equilibrium differs from that corresponding to a cooperative equilibrium. The results also indicate how a ’global policy maker’ must act in order to make the national policy makers replicate the cooperative equilibrium.
