Abstract [en]

The compensation to victims of nuclear accidents is based on a Paris (OECD) and a Vienna (UN) convention. A problem with the system is that a strictly liable, but insolvent or uninsured plant owner leaves victims without compensation. In this paper, it is argued that a system could be better organised by, for example, the European Union (EU). A State that permits a nuclear reactor on its territory should be strictly liable. Benefits are: (i) States are able to compensate large damages, (ii) theory suggests that stepwise modified risk-sharing could be made beneficial for risk-averse States, (iii) the EU can enforce sharing agreements by Member States, (iv) a State can limit its financial burden by redressing some liability to the domestic nuclear industry. The incentive created hereby, as well as regulations on location and safety may prevent accidents. A European nuclear accident pool will have a collective interest in accident prevention. © 2008 The International Association for the Study of Insurance Economics.

Abstract [en]

Our "Restated diversification theorem" (Skogh and Wu, 2005) says that risk-averse agents may pool risks efficiently without assignment of subjective probabilities to outcomes, also at genuine uncertainty. It suffices that the agents presume that they face equal risks. Here, the theorem is tested in an experiment where the probability of loss, and the information about this probability, varies. The result supports our theorem. Moreover, it tentatively supports an evolutionary theory of the insurance industry-starting with mutual pooling at uncertainty, turning into insurance priced ex ante when actuarial information is available. © Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2006.

Abstract [en]

Economic crime is, by definition, crime committed to gain profit within an otherwise legitimate business. Examples are illegal pollution, brand name infringement and tax evasion. The victims of such crimes may be private citizens, businesses and the state. The leading authors in this vital new book survey recent advances in the study of economic crime from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

The key areas examined are: • the economics of corporate crime • enforcing regulation • law and economics of environmental crime • corporate fraud and tax evasion • the history of economic crime

This important volume will be of interest to scholars and policymakers involved in examining and regulating economic crime in both developed and developing countries.

Abstract [sv]

Den svenska, skattebaserade modellen är utsatt för betydande påfrestningar.  Går det att långsiktigt bibehålla omfattning och kvalitet på de offentligt  organiserade verksamheterna när skattebaserna blir allt rörligare? Den  anglosaxiska världen har löst detta genom att förmögenheter förväntas återföras  till samhället genom donationer. Innan det är dags för den sista "fracken" - kistan - är det snarare regel än undantag att donera delar av förmögenheten.

I boken visas att donationer bidrar till att ny kunskap utvecklas och  kommersialiseras, driver på tillväxt samt ökar resurser och mångfald i  forskningen. Dessutom stärker donationer legitimiteten för marknaden och det  kapitalistiska systemet. Det är dags att ändra det svenska  samhällskontraktet!

Abstract [en]

In this paper, insurers' credibility problems explain contracting, co-operation, and regulation in the insurance industry. First, it is noted that cheating by policyholders may be eliminated if the insurer withholds compensation on the basis of detecting careless behaviour with high enough probability. Then, assuming that care taken is imperfectly observable and non-contractible, the problem that insurers may deceive policyholders is addressed. In a repeated game, insurers' building a reputation for being generous can sustain an efficient outcome. Finally, intra-industry co-operation is considered, it is shown that the industry's monitoring care and "fair" compensation, while sustaining monopolistic pricing, mitigates negative credibility externalities. ⌐ 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.

Abstract [en]

Vi föreslår införandet av privat äganderätt till den utrotningshotade svenska järven. Förslaget ger de renägande samerna jakträtten. Samtidigt skall svenska staten betala för skydd av de järvar som lever inom respektive samebys område. Uppfödning av ren och skydd av järv blir därmed en kombinerad näring för samerna samtidigt som incitamentet till tjuvjakt försvinner. Dagens system med politiskt bestämd ersättning till Sametinget för rivna renar minskar inte tjuvjakten. Skadestånd till enskilda renägare fungerar inte heller, eftersom rovdjurens skadeverkningar inte kan uppskattas tillräckligt exakt. En anledning till varför vårt förslag är genomförbart är att antalet järvar inom ett område är mätbart till relativt låga kostnader. Systemet kan finansieras via omfördelning av dagens bidrag till samerna.
