    Construction Investments and Economic Growth in Western Europe2007Inngår i: Journal of Policy Modeling, ISSN 0161-8938, E-ISSN 1873-8060, Vol. 29, nr 3, s. 439-451Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The research task in the present study is to examine the statistical relationship between gross domestic product and a broad group of construction and, furthermore, the presence of crowding-out within the construction industry in Europe. The empirical analyzes support the findings of no crowding-out effect within the construction industry. Contrary, it seems that investments in especially infrastructure will have a complementary filling-in effect by an increase in both residential and other building construction. The Granger causality tests are not conclusive. However, the results imply that GDP Granger cause total construction in the short run, but not vice versa. Furthermore, infrastructure investments Granger causes GDP in the short run. The overall conclusion is that public infrastructure policies have an effect on short-run economic growth but only a weak effect on the long run and that there exist a filling-in effect from other types of construction. Furthermore, residential construction does have a long-run effect on economic growth.

    The robustness of the causal and economic relationship between construction flows and economic growth: evidence from Western Europe2011Inngår i: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 43, nr 7, s. 891-900Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Our main objective is to analyse whether we have a problem of parameter heterogeneity across countries and over time in the estimation of the relationship between infrastructure investments and economic growth. The research approach concerning causality and the estimating of the long-run equilibrium is based on the error-correction model. The problem of parameter heterogeneity is handled by the use of interaction terms. The result indicates that residential construction Granger causes Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the short and long run and it seems likely that the interaction term indicating high unemployment do add some explanation power to the model. This is not true when it comes to infrastructural and other building construction and its impact on economic growth. A high housing stock per capita seems to reduce the short-run effect. This implies that residential construction seems to have a larger effect if the accumulated residential stock is on a low level. The speed of adjustment to long-run equilibrium differs considerably between a country with a low residential capital stock and a country with a high-capital stock. Moreover, high owner occupation rates seem to be associated with a stronger relationship between residential construction and economic growth.

    Conceptualising creativity benefits of nature experience: Attention restoration and mind wandering as complementary processes2018Inngår i: Journal of Environmental Psychology, ISSN 0272-4944, E-ISSN 1522-9610, Vol. 59, s. 36-45Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Accumulating evidence indicates that time spent in natural environments promotes creativity, but few researchers have considered how this occurs. We evaluate two candidate mechanisms, attention restoration and mind wandering. We compare the accounts in terms of attentional focus, brain network activation, cognitive effects, and the temporal progression of these processes across the stages of creativity. Based on this analysis, we propose that (1) gentle shifts between externally oriented soft fascination and internally oriented mind wandering can occur during nature experience; (2) this provides the basis for mutually reinforcing pathways that enhance attention control following nature experience; and (3) mind wandering might support additional benefits for creativity, including flexibility and new associations of ideas. We propose research to test the proposed pathways, including the conditions under which environments influence creativity, the ebb and flow of attention orientation during environmental experience, and the links between attentional focus, brain network activation and creativity.

    The uneven distribution of capital gains in times of socio-spatial inequality: Evidence from Swedish housing pathways between 1995 and 20102018Inngår i: Urban Studies, ISSN 0042-0980, E-ISSN 1360-063X, Vol. 55, nr 12, s. 2721-2742Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Housing wealth is the largest component of wealth for a majority of Swedish households. Whereas investments in housing are merely defined by income, the returns on this investment (capital gains) are dependent on local housing market dynamics. Since the 1990s, local housing market dynamics in Swedish cities have been altered by the upswing in levels of socio-spatial inequality. The simultaneous up- and downgrading of neighbourhoods is reflected in house price developments and exacerbates the magnitude of capital gains and losses. This article proposes that the selective redirection of housing pathways that causes an upswing in socio-spatial inequality translates into an uneven distribution of capital gains as well. A sequence analysis of the housing pathways of one Swedish birth cohort (1970–1975), based on population-wide register data (GeoSweden), is used to explain differences in capital gains between different social groups in the period 1995–2010. The results indicate higher capital gains for individuals with higher incomes and lower gains for migrants. When socio-spatial inequality increases, the more resourceful groups can use their economic and cultural capital to navigate through the housing market in a more profitable way.

    Essays on Valuation of Environmental Attributes2010Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of three self-contained essays.

     

    Essay 1. Radon is a radioactive gas which may occur in buildings and originates mainly from radioactive bedrock and radioactive building materials. In this paper we examine the willingness-to-pay for mitigation of residential radon. A rich data set, from the municipality of Stockholm (Sweden) for the period 1994 - 1996, enables estimation of models accounting for spatial correlation. Our estimate of the marginal willingness-to-pay is approximately SEK 58 200. Our results show that failure to account for the spatial structure inherent in the data, tend to over-estimate the marginal willingness-to-pay for mitigation of residential radon.

     

    Essay 2. This study examines the impact of a refinery on property values. The objective was to study the impact of the non-aesthetic view, the odor, and the impact of the reduced quality of coastal amenities in the surrounding area. To carry out the analysis, a spatial hedonic house price model was applied to transaction data enriched with a measure of visibility of the refinery determined by site inspection. The results indicate that all property values increase with distance to the refinery, but at more than twice the rate in the upwind direction, suggesting a negative effect of odor on property prices. In the proximity of the refinery, a view of the refinery tends to have a negative effect on property values, for example at 1 000 m the estimated effect is -24.5 %. At larger distances, as other positive objects in the view become dominant, the effect turns positive. At 2 000 m the effect is 0.8 %. To study the impact of the reduced quality of coastal amenities, we examined the premiums paid for properties with a sea front and sea view. The results show large differences in premiums and the estimated premium for a sea front (view) in a non-adjacent parish is 139.4 % (69.0 %) and in an adjacent parish 47.7 % (23.7 %), suggesting that a lower quality of coastal amenities could have a strong negative effect on property values.

     

    Essay 3. In this paper we conduct a choice experiment to assess aesthetic improvements in the neighborhood of a refinery located on the Swedish west coast. Considered improvements are: a reduction of vessels operating the refinery jetty, elimination of the odor of crude oil, and removal of the chimneys. We find that respondents marginal willingness-to-pay for an elimination of the odor of crude oil amounts to SEK 3 075. The marginal willingness-to-pay for removal of the chimneys is estimated to SEK 2 082. We find no support for preferences in favour of a reduction of vessels operating the refinery jetty. We also examine if the preferences for the aesthetic improvements differ between permanent residents and second-home owners. The results suggest that both groups have the same preferences regarding the proposed improvements in the environment surrounding the refinery.

    Abstract [en]

    Facilitating home ownership and providing more affordable housing has received considerable attention in urban China. However, it remains a challenge to develop better measurements of affordability due to the income disparity and housing inequality in Beijing. In this study, a new measure of affordability is defined by residual income. Therefore, a minimum required budget for a family to purchase a "standard" unit is deduced by accounting for the basic necessities and financial loans. This paper also discusses the deficiencies of the implemented "Economic Housing Plan" on bridging the housing affordability gap.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to evaluate housing price risks by examining the price diffusion process in different regions of Sweden. We model regional housing volatility as stemming from two sources: regional-specific shocks that reflect fundamental changes and regional-dependent shocks that reflect shocks in related regions. We evaluate the relative contributions of these two sources of regional price variations and measure shock persistence using multivariate modelling. Our results confirm the importance of price diffusion across regions and indicate that several influential regional prices are singled out as powerful determinants of regional heterogeneous volatility through direct and indirect influences.

    Monetary policy and regional price boom in Sweden2010Inngår i: Journal of Policy Modeling, ISSN 0161-8938, E-ISSN 1873-8060, Vol. 32, nr 6, s. 865-879Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study measures the heterogeneous effects of monetary policy on regional house prices in Sweden 1991-2002. We use a multivariate persistent shock metric to examine the impact of short-term interest rate on the property market. We also segregate the influence of interest rate shocks and influence of local shocks to capture their respective effects on regional price boom. We find significant regional effect of monetary policy on housing markets. Interest rate effects dominate the influence of local price innovations in the core economic regions in Sweden. We further discuss the monetary transmission channels and highlight political implications.

    Contested Cities and Urban Activism2019Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This edited volume advances our understanding of urban activism beyond the social movement theorization dominated by thesis of political opportunity structure and resource mobilization, as well as by research based on experience from the global north. Covering a diversity of urban actions from a broad range of countries in both hemispheres as well as the global north and global south, this unique collection notably focuses on non-institutionalised or localised urban actions that have the potential to bring about radical structural transformation of the urban system and also addresses actions in authoritarian regimes that are too sensitive to call themselves “movement”. It addresses localized issues cut off from international movements such as collective consumption issues, like clean water, basic shelter, actions against displacement or proper venues for street vendors, and argues that the integration of the actions in cities in the global south with the specificity of their local social and political environment is as pivotal as their connection with global movement networks or international NGOs. A key read for researchers and policy makers cutting across the fields of urban sociology, political science, public policy, geography, regional studies and housing studies, this text provides an interdisciplinary and international perspective on 21st century urban activism in the global north and south.

    Abstract [en]

    The notion of ‘urban activism’ holds an ambiguous status in both the fields of social movements and urban studies. It usually conflates the meanings of ‘urban movements’ and all sorts of activist practices that take place in cities. ‘Urban movements’ is the conventional expression to capture sustained mobilisations and protests that challenge consolidated power structures in relation to the production and transformation of urban spaces. When these collective actions are neither lasting over time nor sufficiently challenging the rulers and managers over the territory, it seems convenient to just designate them broadly as ‘activism’. Therefore, we argue that urban activism occurs within specific organisations not much coordinated with others, and when it is focused on single-issue demands and campaigns with limited duration and capacity to alter the deep roots of urban politics. Activists are engaged participants in collec-tive action as members of disparate groups who can turn into contributors to larger movements under certain circumstances. We elaborate on this distinction more accurately.

    Impact of perceived indoor environment quality on overall satisfaction in Swedish dwellings2013Inngår i: Building and Environment, ISSN 0360-1323, E-ISSN 1873-684X, Vol. 63, nr May, s. 134-144Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to contribute to the discussion on how satisfaction with different aspects of indoor environment contributes to occupants' overall satisfaction. The analysis is based on survey responses collected during a unique project commissioned by The Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning. The results are representative of adults living in multi-family buildings in Sweden. The analysis shows that generally satisfaction with air quality has the highest impact on occupants' overall satisfaction. The occurrence of problems with indoor environment quality, particularly draught, dust and too low indoor temperature may affect occupants' overall satisfaction. However, it is demonstrated that the importance impact of perceived indoor environment quality on overall satisfaction is affected by individual and building characteristics.

    We investigate the impact of commuter train access on individual labor market outcomes. Our study considers the introduction of a commuter train on a pre-existing railroad in Sweden, considerably decreasing commuting times by public transit and hence increasing access to the regional employment center. Using difference-in-differences matching techniques on comprehensive individual panel data spanning over a decade, our intention-to-treat estimates show that the reform essentially had no impact on the earnings and employment development among the affected individuals.

    Accuracy of Swedish property appraisers' forecasts of net operating income2012Inngår i: Journal of Property Research, ISSN 0959-9916, E-ISSN 1466-4453, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 103-122Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses how property appraisers forecast one important component of the commercial property valuation model: net operating income. We compare appraisers’ ex ante forecasts with corresponding ex post figures from company financial reports. The data are from the Swedish Property Index, 1998–2005, and comprise over 7000 observations. The findings indicate that the appraisers’ forecasts are somewhat forward looking and almost as accurate as those obtained using mechanical autoregressive models. However, the forecasts are biased, as appraisers systematically overestimate future net operating income. There was also evidence of decreasing accuracy over the study period.

    Property investor behaviour: Qualitative analysis of a very large transaction2013Inngår i: Journal of Property Investment & Finance, ISSN 1463-578X, E-ISSN 1470-2002, Vol. 31, nr 6, s. 522-544Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This explorative case study focuses on property investment decision making from a behavioural perspective at the very microlevel. The study contributes to an understanding of how property investors manage the decision-making process, including organizational aspects, property valuation, and financial management.

    Design/methodology/approach – Applying a qualitative approach, the authors analyse a very large transaction that occurred in the Swedish property market in 2008. In an open bid transaction, properties of Vasakronan Corporation were sold for SEK41.1 billion (€4.3 billion). Managers in both the purchasing company and the consortium making the second highest bid were interviewed. The authors were encouraged to speak freely, but also used an interview guide with a number of themes as well as specific questions.

    Findings – The findings reveal the characteristics of two types of property investment decision-making behaviour with respect to how actors organizePractical implications – Creditors, analysts, and appraisers may benefit from the insight that property investment decision makers can use different approaches in determining their final bids.

    Originality/value – The authors use a qualitative empirical approach in analysing an extraordinarily large property transaction from a buyer's point of view and presents detailed information about this transaction as well as general insights into actual behaviour rarely examined in the property investment literature.

    Abstract [en]

    De boende i Västra Hamnen i Malmö utgör i vissa avseenden en speciell befolkningsgrupp. De är yngre och mer välutbildade än genomsnittssvensken och sannolikt också mer välbeställda. Deras miljöengagemang är däremot ganska klent. Byggherrarna hade rätt då de byggde för välbetalda och karriärinriktade människor.

    Livsstilsförändringar och "grön" teknik: Om relationen mellan ekonomisk och ekologisk rationalitet i miljöpolitiken2007Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a study on the contemporary environmental policy discourse called ecological modernisation and especially on eco-modernist social theory. Its central tenet on the (forthcoming) simultaneous existence of economic rationality and ecological rationality constitutes the primary object of an ‘explanatory critique’. The twofold aim of the study is (1) to show that the idea of individuals simultaneously being both ecologically and economically rational must be false and (2) to suggest one reason for its existence. Hence, the simultaneity motif within ecological modernisation theory is analysed as an example of ‘false consciousness’.

    By presenting certain energy saving measures as examples, the environmental planning dilemma inherent in the practice of simultaneously applying ‘green’ technological measures and encouraging ‘green’ lifestyle changes is demonstrated. ‘Green’ technology is in the study described as a type of economic means of control and thus permeated by economic rationality while, on the contrary, ‘green’ lifestyle changes are described as genuinely representing ecological rationality. The study contends that you cannot evoke ecological values (essential for the emergence of ‘green’ lifestyles) by applying economic means of control. Drawing on the analytic dualism of critical realist Margaret S. Archer and the neo-Marxist environmental sociology of Allan Schnaiberg, this dilemma is conceived of as a ‘constraining contradiction’ or a ‘dialectical conflict’.

    The study ends with a tentative synthesis of ecological modernisation and ‘green rationalism’ – the latter being political scientist John S. Dryzek’s term for the neo-Marxist environmental policy discourse. It is argued that ecological values could co-exist with economic objectives, but only insofar the ecologically rational activities and the economically rational activities in society are kept apart and, consequently, do not conflict. If then the ecologically rational actions eventually become more numerous than the economically rational ones, a truly ecological rationalisation of society might ensue.

    Abstract [en]

    In some respects the residents of Malmö's Western Harbour are a community apart. They are younger and better-educated than the average Swede and probably also better off. Their environmental interest, though, is pretty limited. In building for well-paid careerists, the developers were on target.
