    Värdepåverkande faktorer vid värdering av bostadsrätter i Uddevalla kommun2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When a condominium shall be sold in the market a value judgment is performed in order to create a market-based pricing as a basis for the transfer. It is important to know the factors that influence the price and what potential buyers are willing to pay for different qualities and therefore leads to this thesis problem; which characteristics can explain and have the highest effect on the price of a condominium in Uddevalla? To answer the question has empirical data on 1,578 condominium transfers that occurred during the period 2008 to 2013 received.

    After considerations the ideal method is based on hedonic price theory, where the price implicitly reveals consumer preferences. By use of the logarithmic regression model the results obtained by multiple regression analysis where consumer preferences about different qualities have been identified and analyzed, as well as if population and the repo rate affect the price. In addition, the thesis will find out if the price tends to be higher during some of the year's four seasons.

    The thesis conclusions are that living space is the variable that has the greatest impact on price on condominiums in Uddevalla. Because rooms tend to increase with increased living space, the willingness to pay more for each additional room also increases the price. The condominiums location and monthly fee is also crucial for the price. If the distance from the center and monthly fee increase, it reduces buyers' willingness to pay. Further conclusions about the factors that affect the price are that consumers are willing to pay more for newly constructed condominiums and prefer to stay relatively high in the residential buildings

    Distance from insolvency in the Swedish banks: A panel analysis of the four largest banks in Sweden2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    After the resent financial crisis in 2007-2009, the terminology of 'too-big-to-fail' has become an increasingly debated topic around the world, referring to risk-taking by banks that causes systemic risk due to their size and complexity. Large capital contribution packages, implicit guarantees, has been paid out in order to prevent financial meltdown while giving banks and its creditors the incentive to take on higher risk, causing moral hazard. This thesis aims to determine what bank activities that influence implicit guarantees that is measured by banks risk-taking, distance from insolvency, in the four largest bank in Sweden during the time period 2001 to 2015. By a panel regression analysis, we can see that total asset and debt securities influences the banks risk-taking. From the findings we can conclude that the problem of 'too-big-to-fail' exists in Sweden.

    Is the market leading ratings, or ratings leading the market?: A case study of the four largest Swedish banks' default probabilities' relationship with their respective ratings2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work aims at finding out whether a bank's default probability measures are capable of predicting its ratings, and vice versa. It also attempts at finding the most useful combination of independent variables for a predictive regression. I analyze the data regarding ratings, distance to default and Z5 scores for the four largest Swedish banks (Handelsbanken, Nordea, SEB, Swedbank), and utilize multiple linear, ordinal and nominal logit regressions in order to reach my findings. I conclude that default probability measures can be reasonably good variables for predicting these four bank's long term ratings. The same can't be said about the short term ratings. The ratings however, fail to be good predictors of default probability measures.

    Also, it has been discovered that a combination of distance to default, Z5, and distance to default interacting with Z5, is the most effective combination of independent variables for predicting the ratings. The fact that ratings weren't capable of predicting default probability measures too well, suggests that the effect of market on ratings is greater than the opposite. In other words, market leads the ratings.

    Reporäntans effekt på hushållens sparande i Sverige2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies how variations in the repo rate affects the saving rate of Swedish households and in different ages between 1996 and 2016. The central bank of Sweden is the controlling unit of the range for the repo rate. The repo rate affects the inflation as well as the loans and other variables for Swedish households. The time series data used in this thesis are quarterly. Independent values for the variables of the repo rate, inflation, disposable income and saving in relation to age for four different age groups is used. This thesis has developed data that are processed for unit roots and cointegration to estimate the effect on financial savings by using the regression model called "Error Correction Model". The economic model has an explanation power of about 50 % on financial savings in Sweden. This indicates that financial savings can be explained by other variables, such as consumption and psychological effects. With help of previous research, we have concluded that the life cycle hypothesis is the dominant theory when it comes to saving. The conclusions of this study show that the repo rate, as well as the other independent variables such as inflation and disposable income, have an effect on household savings.

    Does immigration affect welfare state generosity? Quasi-experimental evidence2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    his note studies the impact of immigration on welfare state generosity in 12 Western European countries. In estimations not coping with the possible endogeneity problem, there are indications of a negative relationship between immigration and welfare state generosity. However, when the distance to the Balkan wars are used as a source of exogenous variation in the immigrant share, as to overcome potential endogeneity in mobility across countries, our findings suggest that an increase in the immigrant share does not decrease welfare state generosity.

    De svenska hushållens skuldsättning: En ekonometrisk studie kring dess påverkande faktorer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The sharp increase in household debt has lead to a major increase in research done in the subject. We will in this essay analyse how Swedish households indebt themselves and investigate to which degree our explanatory variables affect the total indebtedness in Sweden.

    We will perform a time series analysis of each variable and use a simple multiple regression model to help us interpret which factors are significant in explaining Swedish households indebtedness. The study is based on quarterly data from 2002–2017, which is applied through an econometric model. Our depent variable, the debt ratio, is the ratio between a household's total debt and their disposable income. The explanatory variables used are; the reporate, unemployment, inflation rate, changes in GDP and housing prices in form of a housing price index.

    The results indicate that there is a connection between the debt ratio and the explanatory variables unemployment, changes in GDP and housing price index. This most likely depends on the fact that housing prices have a high explanatory power to household indebtedness.

    Hur påverkas de svenska storbankernas vinster, under reglering av Basel II?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade, there have been several financial crisis and it has shown that banks don´t hold enough capital for the risk their taking. The Basel committee are working on recommendations for banks and how much capital they need to hold. The purpose of Basel recommendations are that banks are going to hold capital for future risks. The Basel committee has released a new regulation, Basel III that is implemented until 2019. This is because the former regulation, Basel II, was not safe enough, which the financial crisis in 2007 proofs. Higher regulations are associated with higher costs and this means lower profit for the banks. By using variables that affects profit, and dummy variables that measures the profit before and during Basel II, we can make a regression analysis. To do the final OLS regression we made a Dickey Fuller tests to test the variables for unit roots.

    This study examine the impact of an increase in capital requirement, as indicated by Basel II, on the profitability of Swedish banks for the period 1998 to 2009. We use the OLS regression model to assess the impact of an increase of Capital requirement and other control variables on Swedish bank profitability (ROA). The results of this report show that the Basel II didn't had any effect on the Swedish banks profitability.

    Immigration and the economy: A study of the costs and benefits of immigration2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the relationship between immigration and GDP/capita in Sweden for the period 1993-2015. This period is chosen because of limitations of data and to include the recent refugee flows in Sweden. The analysis is based on a decomposition framework of GDP/capita. This study contains two empirical investigations; First, an analysis of the contributions of foreign citizens to the Swedish GDP/capita derived from the participation rate. Second, an analysis of which underlying factor(s) of GDP/capita that had an effect from immigration. The result states that an increase in the participation rate for foreign citizens will help to increase the growth of Sweden’s GDP/capita. The result further suggests that there exists no direct effect from immigration on Sweden’s GDP/capita. It also shows that the overall participation rate has a negative correlation with immigration, but no significance when investigation the participation rate with other explanatory factors from GDP/capita. The conclusion must therefore be that any negative effect that immigration has on the participation rate will be weakened or canceled out from possible positive effects in the output-capital ratio, capital intensity rate or the employment rate.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates determinants of the Swedish household debt for the period 2000 to 2016. It used two regression analysis to identify the most important variables, one with the dependent variable debt ratio and one with loans in SEK. The results suggest that the debt ratio depend on cash on the market and to cash on the market in relation to M1. The loans in SEK depended on the short rate (one year), disposable income and house price index.

    Utvecklingen av fastighetspriser på den svenska bostadsmarknaden.: Faktorer som påverkar prisutvecklingen.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish housing market has in the recent years been debated since the price development has been tremendous. Conditions of low interest rate and rising disposable income is something that sets off the market and the consumers in particular. This study uses cointegration techniques and error correction models to analyze the long and the short run determinants of the Swedish housing prices for the period of 1997 to 2017. The choice of the period is based on a more variable price trend but also because the period above provides reliable data for the different variables. According to previous studies the market situation is based on supply and demand. With that in mind the general equilibrium model is used which fits in well with the objective, because the theories analyses what it is that affects the prices on real estate. To further prove the results of the work, statistics have been developed and analysed. The variables chosen have been based on the theory of the general equilibrium model and have been tested using various statistical economic programs (Eviews, SPSS). In order to use the data it has been tested for stationary which means the data is correct and useful. Further on the data has been tested for cointegration through a model called Engle-Granger, which shows if the variables are cointegrated, or not. Finally an ECM model is applied with the purpose to clarify a short-term relationship. In conclusion the results show that the tremendous movements in real estate prices mainly depends on rate, financial assets and disposable income

    The relationship between supplier control and competition in public sector outsourcing2018In: Financial Accountability and Management, ISSN 0267-4424, E-ISSN 1468-0408, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 268-287Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to develop theory and contribute to empirical studies about how the effectiveness of bureaucratic controls in public sector outsourcing is contingent upon supplier competition, and why and how this interaction plays out differently for hard and soft types of outsourced services. In previous inter-organizational management control (IOMC) research there is a contradiction between theory and empirical results concerning how bureaucratic control and supplier competition interacts in aligning suppliers. While IOMC theory suggests competition reduces the need for bureaucratic control, empirical studies clearly indicate the opposite. We extend previous research and theorizing by differing between the outsourcing of hard and soft types of services and by testing the joint effect of bureaucratic control and competition on supplier alignment. The empirical case for testing theory is outsourcing by competitive tendering in the public sector. We use transaction level data from 166 local government suppliers in Sweden. In accordance with our prediction, the effect of bureaucratic control in aligning suppliers decreases with supplier competition when hard types of services are outsourced. For soft types of services, our results indicate that bureaucratic control is not contingent upon supplier competition. Furthermore, we show that when supplier competition is low the effect of bureaucratic control on supplier alignment is stronger for hard than for soft types of services. These results constitute an important contribution to the central notion of the interplay between bureaucratic control and competition in the IOMC literature. © 2018 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Amorteringskravet och bostadspriserna: En studie om prisförändringen på bostadsrätter under perioden då amorteringskravet infördes2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the price change on housing during the introduction of the amortization requirement. The essay is limited to condominiums in Gothenburg.

    The Riksbank has in recent years discussed that measures need to be taken to prevent the Swedish housing market from being overheated. One of these measures is the introduction of the 2016 Amortization Claim. It was then legislated that the consumer is forced to amortize a certain percentage per year of his home loan. The amortization requirement was introduced to dampen household debt and block the way towards a potentially overheated market. It is therefore now interesting to examine what the effect of the amortization requirement had on the market.

    The study examines the effect of the requirement using an equilibrium model and a multiple regression with relevant data as a basis. This in the form of several explanatory variables and the amortization requirement as a dummy variable.

    The overall conclusion of the study states that housing prices will continue to increase during the imposition of the amortization requirement, both as a consequence of the introduction as well as a consequence of the impact of other factors.

    Trade and Economic Growth: The Zambia-China case2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the determinants of Zambia’s volume of trade during the period 1997-2012. Specifically we use the gravity model of international trade to panel data for Zambian exports to ten of the country’s major trading partners during the named period and include a dummy variable to single out the effect of China on Zambian exports. The results show that despite the different economic sizes and the distance between the two countries, the effect of exporting to China is a positive one for Zambia and this, in turn, is beneficial to the country’s economic growth. The results of the regression also suggest that despite distance being significant in trade choice it is proven not to be the complete determinant.

    Estimation of Trade Substitution Elasticities for Swedish Manufacturing Sectors: Armington elasticities at the two-digit ISIC Rev.3 level2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we estimate Armington elasticities for Swedish manufacturing sectors at the two-digit level of the International Standard Industrial Classification system (ISIC). These elasticities represent the sensitivity of Swedish consumption to relative price changes between imports and domestically produced products. We rework and refine the methodology taken from previous literature to create regression equations that keep intact the mathematical relationship inherent in substitution elasticities. Subsequently, data was taken from Eurostat and the OECD. This data was transformed into time series that correspond to the variables in the regression equations. The time series were tested for integration and cointegration. Out of fourteen manufacturing sectors for which data was available, we recommend five elasticity estimates for further use.

    ICT, Functional Urban Regions, and the New Economic Geography2004In: Engineering Economics, ISSN 1392-2785, E-ISSN 2029-5839, Vol. 40, no 14, p. 57-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rapid developments in information and communication technologies (ICT) and the increased use of ICT motivate the vision of an evolving digital economy. During the last decade this evolving digital economy has been the pre-eminent driver of structural change and economic growth at both the national and the regional level in the developed, industrialised economies. The reason is, of course, that ICT functions as a new generic technology, which impacts society both broadly and deeply. ICT has, in essence, destabilised the near equilibrium conditions of an earlier time and contributed to conditions of greater disequilibrium. Thus, one major implication of ICT is that it has created prime conditions for entrepreneurial discovery and action. This implies that there are strong motives to study various aspects of the digital economy, since ICT continues to penetrate the developed economies also after the burst of the ICT stimulated stock market bubble. In this paper we analyse one aspect of the digital economy, namely its effect of the system of functional urban regions. The motivation for this focus is that ICT offers new tools to organise information and enables major reductions in geographical transaction costs, the full implications of which is not yet well understood.

    Knowledge in Regional Economic Growth - The Role of Knowledge Accessibility2007In: Industry and Innovation, ISSN 1366-2716, E-ISSN 1469-8390, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 129-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the role of knowledge in regional economic growth by focusing on knowledge accessibility. The research question is the following: can the variation in knowledge accessibility between regions in a given period explain the variation in growth performance of regions in subsequent periods? A main assumption in the paper is that knowledge accessibility transforms into potential knowledge flows. Our results show that differences in growth of value‐added per employee across regions can be explained by differences in knowledge accessibility. Intra‐municipal and intra‐regional knowledge accessibilities are significant and capable of explaining a significant share of the variation in growth of value‐added per employee between Swedish municipalities. However, inter‐regional knowledge accessibility turned out to be insignificant. This is interpreted as a clear indication of spatial dependence in the sense that the knowledge resources in a given municipality tend to have a positive effect on the growth of other municipalities, conditional on that the municipalities belong to the same functional region. Thus, the results of the analysis indicate that knowledge flows transcend municipal borders, but that they tend to be bound within functional regions.

    University and Industry R&D Accessibilty and Regional Growth2008In: Italian Journal of Regional Science, ISSN 1720-3929, Vol. 7, no 2 (suppl), p. 97-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A shortcoming of traditional endogenous growth approaches is their assumption that the stock of knowledge is generally accessible across space. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the contribution of R&D to economic growth in Swedish municipalities, taking account of the variation in R&D accessibility among different municipalities. We argue that the interaction possibilities at different spatial scales can be properly represented by an accessibility approach which discounts interaction potentials using travel time distances. Hence, the total accessibility of a municipality is divided into (i) intra-municipal, (ii) intra-regional and (iii) extra-regional accessibility to R&D. The main result of the analysis is that knowledge accessibility in a given period has a statistically significant effect on the growth in value-added per employee in subsequent periods. Furthermore, the knowledge resources in a given municipality tend to have a positive effect on the growth of another municipality, conditional on the municipalities belonging to the same functional region. The paper also demonstrates that knowledge accessibilities do not affect growth homogenously across municipalities. By dividing the full sample into three categories, the paper shows that knowledge investments have the largest effects on regional growth in municipalities belonging to a large functional region, but not necessarily in the largest municipality in the region.

    Innovation, Dynamic Regions and Regional Dynamics2009In: New Directions in Regional Economic Development / [ed] Karlsson, C., et al, Berlin: Springer, 2009, p. 1-33Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the aspects of spatial economics that deals with innovation, regional specialization and dynamic systems of functional regions and in particular the contributions made by the economist Börje Johansson. The innovation aspect consists of innovation networks, knowledge sources and knowledge sinks, cost and innovation of product characteristics and innovation at the industry and sector level. In the regional specialization part the infrastructure, regional economic milieus, the specialization of regions and specific the specialization in small and large regions, spatial transaction costs, and endogenous specialization are subjects that are being treated. Regional dynamics consists of location dynamics in a system of functional urban regions where different theories are being discussed as the spatial product life cycle theory and filtering-down theory. The last part does also take up lead-lag models.

    Interregional inventor networks as studied by patent coinventorships2006In: Research Policy, ISSN 0048-7333, E-ISSN 1873-7625, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 412-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study the structure of the interregional inventor networks in Sweden by examining the residence of inventors and coinventors involved in Swedish patent applications to the European Patent Office. Several factors are found to influence the spatial affinity of regions. We find that spatial affinity extends beyond the region if it has less own R&D-related resources (business R&D, university R&D and patenting); if it is close to the other region and if it is relatively small. The resources of that other region plays a positive role if, in analogue fashion, that region has more R&D-related resources.

    Swedish perspectives on creative cities2014In: International Journal of Global Environmental Issues, ISSN 1466-6650, E-ISSN 1741-5136, Vol. 13, no 2-4, p. 100-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Most of what has been written about the role of creativity for urban growth and development and about so called creative cities has used a very narrow definition of creativity and creative occupations and focused on a narrow set of so-called creative industries. This is unfortunate since creativity today is central and increasingly important also in other industries and within universities and research institutes for enhancing economic development. The present paper argues for a wider definition of creativity for the study of creative cities. The purpose is to discuss aspects of creativity and creative cities partly using inputs from the Swedish regional science tradition. © 2014 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
