    A Study on the Low Volatility Anomaly in the Swedish Stock Exchange Market: Modern Portfolio Theory2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates, with a critical approach, if portfolios consisting of high beta stocks yields more than portfolios consisting of low beta stocks in the Swedish stock exchange market. The chosen period is 1999-2016, covering both the DotCom Bubble and the financial crisis of 2008. We also investigate if the Capital Asset Pricing Model is valid by doing a test similar to Fama and Macbeth’s of 1973.

    Based on earlier studies in the field and our own study we come to the conclusion that high beta stocks does not outperform low beta stocks in the Swedish stock market 1999-2016. We believe that this relationship arises from inefficiencies in the market and irrational investing. By doing this study we observe that, the use of beta as the only risk factor for explaining expected returns on stocks or portfolios is not correct.

    Are religious people more prosocial? A quasi-experimental study with madrasah pupils in a rural community in India2009Inngår i: Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, ISSN 0021-8294, E-ISSN 1468-5906, Vol. 48, nr 2, s. 368-374Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Using quasi-experimental data, this paper examines the relationship between religiosity and prosocial behavior. In contrast to previous studies which identify religious people by how often they attend religious services or by their self-reported religiosity, this study compares the behavior of highly devout students who are preparing to enter the clergy, to the behavior of other students in a public-goods game and in the dictator game. The results show that religious students were significantly more cooperative in the public-goods game and significantly more generous in the dictator game than other students.

    Conditional reciprocity in the investment game2011Inngår i: The Social science journal (Fort Collins), ISSN 0362-3319, E-ISSN 1873-5355, Vol. 48, nr 2, s. 404-408Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether people are conditional reciprocators in an investment game experiment, in the sense that the more they are trusted, the more they reciprocate. The results show that the majority of participants are conditional reciprocators but that they can be classified into three types: (1) exploitative reciprocators who do not reciprocate and exploit trust; (2) egoistic reciprocators who neither exploit nor reward trust; and (3) generous reciprocators who reward trusting behavior.

    Etnisk diskriminering - vad vet vi, vad behöver vi veta och vad kan vi göra?2015Inngår i: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 43, nr 4, s. 18-28Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [sv]

    Diskriminering är ett avsevärt hinder på arbetsmarknaden, bostadsmarknaden och andra marknader för personer med utländsk bakgrund. I Sverige finns lagstiftning som förbjuder diskriminering och en myndighet som har tillsyn över problematiken. Men vad säger forskningen om etnisk diskriminering i Sverige? Denna översikt redogör för nationalekonomiska undersökningar som entydigt har funnit belägg för etnisk diskriminering. I ljuset av denna översikt förs en diskussion kring det vi känner till och det vi behöver känna till. Slutligen framförs förslag om hur arbetet mot etnisk diskriminering kan förbättras.

    Muslim discrimination: evidence from two lost letter experiments2010Inngår i: Journal of Applied Social Psychology, ISSN 0021-9029, E-ISSN 1559-1816, Vol. 40, nr 4, s. 888-898Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there has been considerable concern about whether Muslims living in Western countries are targets of prejudice. A considerable amount of survey-based evidence suggests that Muslims are victims of discrimination. This paper tested this hypothesis. Two lost-letter experiments were conducted to test whether the difference in returned letters would be attributable to whether the addressee was Muslim or Swedish. The results show that Muslims receive far fewer letters than do Swedes. However, this discrimination only appears when the lost letters contain money; in which case, the finder gains by not posting the letter.

    What is in a surname? The role of ethnicity in economic decision making2010Inngår i: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 42, nr 21, s. 2715-2723Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reports results from two experiments that investigate possible incidence of discrimination against people with foreign backgrounds in Sweden. In the first experiment, participants played the trust game and the dictator game with co-players of different ethnic affiliation. The family name of the players was exposed to their co-players. Results for the trust game showed no significant discrimination against co-players with foreign backgrounds. On the other hand, the results for the dictator game showed a statistically significant discriminatory behaviour by men against co-players with non-European backgrounds. The discriminatory behaviour was solely a male phenomenon. In the second experiment, the dictator game was replicated to check the stability of the results in the first experiment. The second experiment also examined whether people with foreign backgrounds discriminate against other people with foreign backgrounds; that is, the purpose was to discover whether discrimination is systematic. The observations in the second experiment underlined the results found in the first experiment: foreign co-players are discriminated against by Swedish players. However, we did not find that people with foreign backgrounds discriminated against other people with foreign backgrounds.

    Women are not always less competitive than men: evidence from Come Dine with Me2011Inngår i: Applied Economics Letters, ISSN 1350-4851, E-ISSN 1466-4291, Vol. 18, nr 12, s. 1099-1101Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Are women less competitive than men? Many experimental and nonexperimental studies have documented gender differences in competitiveness. This article presents the results from a study that examines gender differences in competitiveness in the television show Come Dine with Me. It is a cooking show in which amateur chefs compete against each other for a cash prize. The show provides an unusual opportunity to study gender differences in a high-stakes game environment. The results demonstrate that there are no gender differences in competitiveness.

    Are gay men and lesbians discriminated against in the hiring process?2013Inngår i: Southern Economic Journal, ISSN 0038-4038, E-ISSN 2325-8012, Vol. 79, nr 3, s. 565-585Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the first field experiment on sexual orientation discrimination in the hiring process in the Swedish labor market. Job applications were sent to about 4000 employers in 10 different occupations in Sweden. Gender and sexual orientation were randomly assigned to applications. The results show that sexual orientation discrimination exists in the Swedish labor market. The discrimination against the gay male applicant and the lesbian applicant varied across different occupations and appears to be concentrated in the private sector. The results also show that the gay male applicant was discriminated against in typical male-dominated occupations, whereas the lesbian applicant was discriminated against in typical female-dominated occupations. Theoretical implications are discussed.

    Can discrimination in the housing market be reduced by increasing the information about the applicants?2010Inngår i: Land Economics, ISSN 0023-7639, E-ISSN 1543-8325, Vol. 86, nr 1, s. 79-90Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate how increasing the information about applicants affects discrimination in the rental housing market. We let four fictitious applicants, two with typical Arab/Muslim names and two with typical Swedish names, use application letters containing different amounts of information to apply for apartments over the Internet in Sweden. The Arab/Muslim applicants received fewer responses from the landlords than did the Swedish applicants. All of the applicants gained by providing more information about themselves, but the amount of discrimination against the Arab/Muslim applicants remained unchanged, indicating that increasing the amount of information about the applicants will not reduce discrimination.

    Diskriminering mot icke-heterosexuella i anställningssituationen2011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna rapport presenteras resultatet från ett fältexperiment vilket undersöker förekomsten av diskriminering av homosexuella i anställningssituationen. Vi finner att såväl homosexuella män som homosexuella kvinnor diskrimineras då de söker efter lediga anställningar. Omfattningen av diskrimineringen verkar dock vara mindre än vad som framkommit i tidigare studier. Diskrimineringen förekommer framförallt inom vissa yrkeskategorier som i vår studie är koncentrerade till den privata sektorn. Vidare framkommer en ny dimension av könsskillnaderna på arbetsmarknaden då resultaten visar att homosexuella män framförallt diskrimineras då de söker anställning i mansdominerade yrken medan homosexuella kvinnor diskrimineras då de söker anställning i kvinnodominerade yrken. Resultaten pekar således mot att homosexuella män i viss utsträckning möter liknande hinder på arbetsmarknaden som heterosexuella kvinnor.

    Does age matter for employability? A field experiment on ageism in the Swedish labor market2012Inngår i: Applied Economics Letters, ISSN 1350-4851, E-ISSN 1466-4291, Vol. 19, nr 4, s. 403-406Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the findings of the first field experiment on age discrimination in the Swedish labour market. Pairs of matched applications, one from a fictitious 31-year-old male applicant and one from a fictitious 46-year-old male applicant, were sent to employers with job openings for restaurant workers and sales assistants. Employers' responses to the applicants were then recorded. The experimental data provide clear and strong evidence of significant ageism in the Swedish labour market. On average, the younger applicant received over 3 times more responses from employers looking to hire a restaurant worker and over 4 times more responses from employers looking to hire a sales assistant than the older applicant. Therefore, the older applicant received significantly fewer invitations for interviews and job offers than the younger applicant in both occupations examined.

    Ethnic discrimination in the market place of small business transfers2009Inngår i: Economics Bulletin, ISSN 1545-2921, E-ISSN 1545-2921, Vol. 29, nr 4, s. 3050-3058Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the first field experiment regarding ethnic discrimination in the market place of small business transfers. We let two fictitious prospective buyers, one with a typical Swedish name and one with a typical Arab/Muslim name, respond to advertisements of small business transfers on the Internet in Sweden. We then recorded the number contacts achieved by each fictitious buyer with sellers. We found that sellers discriminated against the buyer with an Arab/Muslim name in the sense that the buyer with an Arab/Muslim name obtained fewer contacts with sellers than did the buyer with a Swedish name.

    Inter- and Intra-Household Earnings Differentials among Homosexual and Heterosexual Couples2011Inngår i: British Journal of Industrial Relations, ISSN 0007-1080, E-ISSN 1467-8543, Vol. 49, nr S2, s. S258-S278Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We present earnings differentials between homosexuals and heterosexuals. In line with previous research, we find that gay males earn less than heterosexual males, and that lesbians earn more than heterosexual females. However, when combining the individuals into households, our results are strikingly different: very small earnings differentials between gay households and heterosexual households are found. Lesbian households earn considerably less. The largest earnings inequalities between spouses are found among gay males followed by heterosexuals. Studying sexual orientation and earnings is complex, and household earnings have to be taken into consideration when conclusions are drawn.

    Sexual orientation and full-time monthly earnings, by public and private sector: evidence from Swedish register data2013Inngår i: Review of Economics of the Household, ISSN 1569-5239, E-ISSN 1573-7152, Vol. 11, nr 1, s. 83-108Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we explore annual earnings as well as full-time monthly earnings differentials resulting from sexual orientation. We observe that gay males are at an earnings disadvantage compared to male heterosexuals regardless of which earnings measure we use. This earnings disadvantage is found to be larger when we compare gay and heterosexual males who are working full-time. In addition, the disadvantage is larger in the private than in the public sector. Lesbians, however, earn more than heterosexual females. This earnings advantage is considerably smaller when we study full-time monthly rather than annual earnings but an earnings advantage for lesbians at the top of the earnings distribution is documented regardless of which earnings measure we use. In addition, lesbians are doing better than female heterosexuals in the public sector. To sum up, the results indicate that gay males face obstacles on the labor market that hinder them from reaching top-level positions and high earnings. The earnings advantage observed for lesbians is likely to stem from the fact that lesbians devote more time to market work than heterosexual females do.

    Sexual orientation and occupational rank2011Inngår i: Economics Bulletin, ISSN 1545-2921, E-ISSN 1545-2921, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 2422-2433Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a study of differences in occupational rank between gay and heterosexual males as well as between lesbian and heterosexual females. We estimate different specifications of an ordered probit model on register data from Sweden. Our data consist of married heterosexual men and women and homosexual men and women living in civil unions. We find that homosexual men have a lower probability of working in a profession demanding a longer university education or a management profession than heterosexual men. In contrast, we find that homosexual women are more likely than heterosexual women to work in such professions.

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel presenteras resultaten av en experimentell studie om etnisk diskriminering.Undersökningen visar att det främst är infödda män som tenderar att ha ett diskriminerande beteende. I Sverige fi nns lagstiftning som förbjuder etnisk diskriminering. Vi har också en särskild myndighet – diskrimineringsombudsmannen – som skall motverka etnisk diskriminering. Den presenterade undersökningen kan ge en ny infallsvinkel. Ett sätt att motverka diskriminering av invandrare kan vara att se till att andelen kvinnor som är personalchefer i företag och myndigheter ökar. Frågan om etnisk diskriminering är kanske också en jämställdhetsfråga.

    Abstract [en]

    This article encapsulates the findings of a randomized correspondence test field experiment investigating whether job candidates home status influences their employability. More than 2000 employers with vacancies in the Swedish labour market received a job application from a fictitious candidate. A job candidates home status (his or her own place to live or temporary housing with a friend) was randomized across employers. Results show that home status indeed affected the number of positive employer responses received by job candidates, mainly in low-skilled occupations. Not having a place to live at the time of the application proved a disadvantage when applying for positions within but an advantage when applying for positions outside the city of residence at the time of the application.

    Detecting discrimination against homosexuals: evidence from a field experiment on the Internet2009Inngår i: Economica, ISSN 0013-0427, E-ISSN 1468-0335, Vol. 76, nr 303, s. 588-597Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the first field experiment studying discrimination against homosexuals on the housing market. The study is conducted on the rental housing market in Sweden using the internet as a research platform. Two fictitious couples, one heterosexual and one male homosexual, apply for vacant rental apartments advertised by landlords on the internet. Our findings show that homosexual males are discriminated against on the Swedish housing market, since the homosexual couple gets far fewer call-backs and fewer invitations to further contacts and to showings of apartments than the heterosexual couple.

    Diskrimineras homosexuella? Några erfarenheter från svensk ekonomisk forskning2008Inngår i: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 36, nr 8, s. 31-40Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Diskriminering av homosexuella är förbjudet i Sverige. Trots detta är den ekonomiska forskning som finns på området begränsad. I artikeln presenteras resultat från forskningsprojekt rörande homosexuellas situation på arbets- och bostadsmarknaden i Sverige. Resultaten är i linje med resultat från internationell forskning. Homosexuella män har lägre arbetsinkomster än heterosexuella män. Diskriminering och skillnader i fördelningen av marknadsarbete och hushållarbete mellan homo- och heterosexuella hushåll framförs som förklaringar till detta. Vidare diskrimineras homosexuella män på bostadsmarknaden. Beträffande kvinnor finner vi inga statistiskt signifikanta skillnader mellan homo- och heterosexuella. Avslutningsvis presenteras några tänkbara förklaringar till varför homosexuella män diskrimineras medan detta inte är fallet för homosexuella kvinnor.

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel studeras diskriminering på svensk bostadsmarknad med hjälp av ett fältexperiment utfört på internet. I experimentet studeras såväl etnisk diskriminering som könsdiskriminering genom att tre fiktiva personer, en med ett typiskt svenskt manligt namn, en med ett typiskt svensk kvinnligt namn samt en med ett typiskt arabiskt/muslimskt manligt namn söker hyresrättslägenheter vilka utannonserats som lediga av såväl privatpersoner som företag på Blocket. se. Våra resultat visar att den arabiske/muslimske mannen möter diskriminering när han söker lägenheter. Den arabisk/muslimske mannen fick långt färre positiva svar och erbjudanden till visningar av lägenheter än den svenske mannen. Vi finner också en könsdiskriminering på bostadsmarknaden där den svenska kvinnan fick fler positiva svar och visningserbjudanden än den svenske mannen.

    Sexual orientation and earnings: a register data-based approach to identify homosexuals2010Inngår i: Journal of Population Economics, ISSN 0933-1433, E-ISSN 1432-1475, Vol. 23, nr 3, s. 835-849Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines earnings differentials between homo- and heterosexual individuals by identifying sexual orientation with the help of information from register data. Register data enable us to avoid the misclassifications of sexual orientation often mentioned as a potential bias in survey-based studies. The results show that gay men are at an earnings disadvantage as compared to male heterosexuals while the earnings differential between lesbians and heterosexual women is very small. Our results are in line with results from previous research but are more reliable since we use a more reliable measure of sexual orientation than previous research.

    The effect of subtle religious representations on cooperation2011Inngår i: International Journal of Social Economics, ISSN 0306-8293, E-ISSN 1758-6712, Vol. 38, nr 11, s. 900-910Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how subtle religious representations affect prosocial behavior. The authors study the impact of religious representations on prosocial behavior in terms of cooperation in a one-shot/three-person public goods game.

    Design/methodology/approach – The authors used the scrambled sentence task to prime participants with religious words before they were asked to make a one-shot/three-person public goods game decision.

    Findings – Both in the raw data and when controlling for factors such as age, gender and religious beliefs, the authors found that priming of religious representations increased cooperation in the experiment, that is, increased contributions to the public good. The authors found no significant interaction effects between priming and self-reported measures of religiosity, suggesting that the priming effect was present among both self-reported religious and nonreligious participants. Self-reported measures of religiosity were not correlated with cooperation in this study.

    Originality/value – The paper adds to the growing body of experimental economics literature that has studied self-reported measures of religiosity alongside behavior in different economic games. This study contributes to the literature by examining the effect of subtle influences of religion on cooperation. Also, in contrast to previous economic literature, the paper examines the direct impact of religion as an independent variable on cooperation.

    Can education affect pro-social behavior?: Cops, economists and humanists in social dilemmas2008Inngår i: International Journal of Social Economics, ISSN 0306-8293, E-ISSN 1758-6712, Vol. 35, nr 4, s. 298-307Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine whether education and training affect pro-social behavior. Economics students are often accused of being less pro-social. The explanations given are that less pro-social people choose to study economics or that economics studies indoctrinate students to selfish behavior. The paper experimentally tests these postulations.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper uses the prisoner's dilemma game and stag hunt game to study cooperation across different groups of students.

    Findings – The experiment supports neither of the postulations: economics students would be indoctrinated or less pro-social people choose to study economics. However, the study shows that police cadets, who go through an education where teamwork and cooperation is promoted, become more cooperative and pro-social after their completed education.

    Originality/value – In contrast to earlier studies, this paper does not simply study economics students, but also examines if students in educational programs that promote loyalty and cooperation and encourage teamwork are more pro-social than other students.

    Decisions under unpredictable losses: An examination of the restated diversification principle2007Inngår i: Judgment and decision making, ISSN 1930-2975, E-ISSN 1930-2975, Vol. 2, nr 5, s. 312-316Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental test of the descriptive adequacy of the restated diversification principle is presented. The principle postulates that risk-averse utility maximizers will pool risks for their mutual benefit, even if information is missing about the probabilities of losses. It is enough for people to assume that they face equal risks when they pool risks. The results of the experiment support the principle.

    Group identity, social distance and intergroup bias2007Inngår i: Journal of Economic Psychology, ISSN 0167-4870, E-ISSN 1872-7719, Vol. 28, nr 3, s. 324-337Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies how groupidentity, socialdistance and intergroupbias may affect economic decision-making. Two types of experimental groupings are created, and subjects are then paired with either an in-group member or an out-group member in a number of two-person games. The result of this experiment shows that out-group members face a risk of being discriminated against. The cause of the discrimination is not hostility toward out-group members; the discrimination is triggered because of higher expectations or favoritism of in-group members. This type of behavior holds, regardless of the grouping procedure.

    Are lesbians discriminated against in the rental housing market? Evidence from a correspondence testing experiment2008Inngår i: Journal of Housing Economics, ISSN 1051-1377, E-ISSN 1096-0791, Vol. 17, nr 3, s. 234-238Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a field experiment, conducted over the Internet, studying possible discrimination againstlesbians in the rentalhousing market in Sweden. We let two fictitious couples, one heterosexual and one lesbian, apply for vacant rental apartments advertised by landlords on the Internet. We then investigated whether there were differences between the couples in the number of received call-backs, invitations to further contact, and invitations to immediate showings. Our findings show no indication of differential treatment of lesbians by landlords. A discussion relating to earlier findings is provided

    Discrimination in the rental housing market: a field experiment on the Internet2008Inngår i: Journal of Urban Economics, ISSN 0094-1190, E-ISSN 1095-9068, Vol. 64, nr 2, s. 362-372Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents afieldexperiment on discrimination in the housing market, using the Internet as a research platform. The procedure involved our creating three fictitious persons with distinctive sounding ethnic and gender names. These individuals applied for vacant rental apartments in Sweden that were advertised by landlords on the Internet. Our findings show that the Arabic/Muslim male received far fewer call backs, enquiries, and showings than the Swedish male. Our observations also indicate that the Swedish female met with less difficulty in terms of finding an apartment than the Swedish male. Thus, based on our findings, we conclude that ethnic, as well as gender discrimination exists in the Swedish rentalhousing market.

    The employability of ex-offenders: a field experiment in the Swedish labor market2017Inngår i: IZA Journal of Labor Policy, ISSN 2193-9004, E-ISSN 2193-9004, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 1-23Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the findings of a field experiment on hiring discrimination against ex-offenders in the Swedish labor market. Matched pairs of written job applications for fictitious male and female applicants with and without a past conviction of assault were sent to employers for nine different occupations. Results show that discrimination against ex-offenders exists, but the extent of it varies across occupations. The past conviction of assault was associated with 7–18 percentage point lower probability of receiving a positive employer response. Discrimination against ex-offenders was pronounced in female-dominated and high-skilled occupations. The magnitude of discrimination against ex-offenders did not vary by applicants’ sex.

    Trust in India and Sweden: an experimental examination of the Fukuyama conjecture2008Inngår i: Cross-cultural research, ISSN 1069-3971, E-ISSN 1552-3578, Vol. 42, nr 4, s. 420-429Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors test the proposition, put forward by Francis Fukuyama, that the higher the level of trust in a country the less corrupt, the more developed, and wealthier its economy will be. They study trust and voluntary cooperation using a one-shot and three-person public goods game experiment in India and Sweden. The results, in line with the proposition, show that the average contribution is significantly larger in Sweden, implying a higher level of trust and cooperation in Sweden than in India. This article provides further evidence on the relationship between trust and economic development. This study differs from previous ones in that it uses a multilateral game experiment to study trust and cooperation rather than a bilateral game experiment. Furthermore, it provides evidence from two countries not studied before in this context.

    In this work using an experiment of game of public goods analyzes the relation between the attitudinal trust and behavioral trust in three countries. Students from Colombia, Mexico and Sweden participate in this experiment and respond a questionnaire with questions on confidence. The attitudinal trust and behavioral trust are different substantially between the analyzed countries. The confidence measured by the questions of the questionnaire does not show a pattern of common conduct between the participants of the three countries. Nevertheless, a somewhat similar behavior we found in the applied experiment, that is to say, the participants assume a certain level of risk very similarity, however, cultures and different societies come from.

    Implicit influences of Christian religious representations on dictator and prisoner’s dilemma game decisions2011Inngår i: The Journal of Socio-Economics, ISSN 1053-5357, E-ISSN 1879-1239, Vol. 40, nr 3, s. 242-246Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate how implicit influences of Christian religious representations affect prosociality. We examine the direct impact of religion as an independent variable on prosocial behavior. We do so by priming participants with religious words in a scrambled sentence task before they make a dictator game and a prisoner's dilemma game decision. Priming religious words significantly increased prosocial behavior in both games: participants in the treatment group were more generous and cooperative than participants in the control group. The priming effect was present regardless of participants’ self-reported religiosity. Self-reported religiosity was not correlated with generosity or cooperation.

    Is the hand of God involved in human cooperation?2009Inngår i: International Journal of Social Economics, ISSN 0306-8293, E-ISSN 1758-6712, Vol. 36, nr 1/2, s. 70-80Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the supernatural punishment theory. The theory postulates that religion increases cooperation because religious people fear the retributions that may follow if they do not follow the rules and norms provided by the religion.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper reports results for a public goods experiment conducted in India, Mexico, and Sweden. By asking participants whether they are religious or not, one can study whether religiosity has an effect on voluntary cooperation in the public goods game.

    Findings – No significant behavioral differences were found between religious and nonreligious participants in the experiment.

    Originality/value – This paper differs from the previous limited experimental literature, studying religiosity and cooperation, in the sense that it uses a public goods game rather than a prisoner's dilemma game. The public goods game is more interesting since many real life problems are multilateral rather than bilateral. Further, the study was conducted in three different countries: India, Mexico, and Sweden; with three different types of potentialy religious people: Hindus, Catholics, and Protestants.

    The relationship between behavioral and attitudinal trust: a cross-cultural study2009Inngår i: Review of social economy, ISSN 0034-6764, E-ISSN 1470-1162, Vol. 67, nr 4, s. 457-482Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We study the relationship between trust in an experiment and trust measured by means of popular survey items in different countries. Students from Chile, Colombia, India, Mexico and Sweden participate in a public goods game experiment and answer a set of standard attitudinal survey questions about trust. We find that behavioral trust and attitudinal trust significantly differ among countries. Behavioral trust is highest in Sweden, followed by Latin America, and lowest in India. Attitudinal trust is highest in Chile and Sweden, followed by India and Mexico, and lowest in Colombia. Further, the predictive power of survey items also differs among countries. Trust measured by survey items is significantly related to behavioral trust in some but not in all societies. No single survey item predicts actual trust across all countries. Plausible explanations of the inconsistent relationship between behavioral and attitudinal trust across countries are discussed.

    Biomass energy, technological progress and the environmental Kuznets curve: Evidence from selected European countries2016Inngår i: Biomass and Bioenergy, ISSN 0961-9534, E-ISSN 1873-2909, Vol. 90, s. 202-208Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine the causal relationship between economic growth and CO2 emissions in a panel of 24 European countries from 1980 to 2010. Using an analytical framework that considers pooled mean group estimations in a dynamic heterogeneous panel setting, we show that there is an inverted U-shaped relationship between CO2 emissions and economic growth in the long run and that there is no such relationship in the short run. In particular, we find that biomass energy is insignificantly linked to CO2 emission. However, technological innovation significantly facilitates reduction of CO2 emissions in the investigated countries. Altogether, our study implies that economic growth and environmental quality can be achieved simultaneously, which opens up new insights for policy-makers for sustainable economic development via implementation of renewable energy consumption through technological innovation.

    Fånge, hare eller hjort- En spelteoretisk analys av prisfallet på oljan2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie har till syfte att med hjälp av spelteorier analyser vilka incitament som låg bakom oljeprisfallet 2014 till 2016. Studien baseras på att pröva två spelteorier och analyserar vilken teori som har störst förklaringskraft på händelseförloppet. Händelseförloppet och oljemarknadens utveckling kommer att sammanställas utifrån aktuell data från myndigheter och nyhetssidor. Därefter kommer materialet att kategoriseras i olika huvudteman för att enklare kunna illustrera händelseförloppet och få en djupare förståelse. De två spelteorierna som studien baseras på är fångarnas dilemma och Stag Hunt samt försäkringsspelet som är en utvecklad version av Stag Hunt.Oljepriset under 2014 sjönk med 48,2 % på grund av massproduktionen av samtliga oljeproducenter. Detta påbörjades med hjälp av den nya kostsamma utvinningstekniken, fracking. Oljeproducenter som OPEC ökade sin produktion bland annat för att inte förlora sina marknadsandelar. Innan 2014 bestraffades oljeproducenter om produktionsnivån förändrades då det var en faktor som förhindrade upprätthållandet av ett högt oljepris. På oljemarknaden förekom svek, hot samt bestraffningar vilket indikerar på att fångarnas dilemma överensstämde med oljemarknaden.Oljeprisfallet 2014 orsakades av massproduktionen av främst USA. Oljeproducenterna hade då vetskap om USA:s mål vilket gjorde att en av förutsättningarna för fångarnas dilemma brast. Ur ett Stag Hunt perspektiv är oljeproducenternas pareotooptimala val att samarbeta. Däremot fick USA möjligheten att bli oberoende av importerad olja och valde därför att inte samarbeta med de resterande oljeproducenterna. För att inte riskera att förlora sina marknadsandelar var OPEC tvungna att försäkra sig genom att också avvika från samarbetet.

    Assessing the Use of Welfare-Based Track Access Charging for Railway Capacity Allocation2019Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The deregulation of railway markets has brought new challenges to the capacity allocation process. In this context, we present a new hybrid methodology for allocating railway capacity to commercial train operators. Commercial freight or passenger train operators compete with each other as well as with subsidised local commuter trains. In the method presented in this article, minimal track access charges are computed using a social cost-benefit analysis of alternative commuter train timetables. These minimal charges are used as a starting or reservation price in an auction-based method for capacity allocation between the commercial operators. The aim of this study is to assess the use of such a welfare-based track access charging system in a real case scenario. On a congested line in the region of Stockholm, we evaluate the welfare-based access charges of commercial operators. We show that the new methodology can be used to allocate capacity between subsidized and commercial train operators. Moreover, we provide an estimate of the marginal minimal access charge per train path that the commercial operators request.

    Relative concerns and sleep behavior2019Inngår i: Economics and Human Biology, ISSN 1570-677X, E-ISSN 1873-6130, Vol. 33Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate the relationship between relative concerns with respect to income and the quantity and quality of sleep using a 6-year panel dataset on the sleep behavior of people in Germany. We find a substantial negative association between relative income and number of hours of sleep and satisfaction with sleep, i.e., sleep quality, whereas there is no particular association between absolute level of income and sleep quantity and quality. A 10-percent increase in the income of relevant others is associated with 6-8 min decrease in a persons weekly amount of sleep on average, yet this effect is particularly strong among the relatively deprived, i.e., upward comparers, as this group shows a corresponding decrease in sleeping time of 10-12 min/week. These findings are highly robust to several specification checks, including measures of relative concerns, reference group, income inequality, and local price differences. The heterogeneity analysis reveals that the relationship is mainly driven by people with relatively fewer working hours, a higher demand for household production and leisure activities, and lower physical health and well-being.

    Konsumenters betalningsvilja för Kravmärkningen: En analys av faktorer som påverkar konsumenters betalningsvilja av utvalda livsmedelsvaror2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Kravmärkningen existerar för att främja ekologisk framtagning av livsmedel, märkningen har existerat länge och vuxit till att bli ett välkänt varumärke. Hur väl märkningen fungerar för att påverka konsumtionen är något som är värt att studera närmare. Kravmärkta varor är generellt dyrare att producera och får därmed ett dyrare pris på marknaden. Därför krävs det att konsumenter har en vilja att betala för detta. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka huruvida denna betalningsvilja faktiskt existerar hos studenter. Vi har inkluderat teorier för inkomstelasticitet, priselasticitet, externa effekter och nudging. Tillsammans med tidigare forskning har det diskuterats kring faktorer som påverkar studenters betalningsvilja. En enkätundersökning har även genomförts för att granska studenters kunskaper om Kravmärkningen samt testa deras betalningsvilja för specifikt utvalda konventionella respektive Kravmärkta livsmedel. Utöver enkätundersökningen har information samlats in genom en mailkorrespondens med butikschefen på Maxi ICA Stormarknad Linköping för att få mer kunskap kring eventuella strategier livsmedelsbutiken använder sig av.

    Studien visar att studenterna generellt är väl informerade om existensen av Krav som miljömärke, dock är kunskaperna låga rörande Krav:s arbete och syfte. Vi har observerat att det generellt är färre individer som väljer Kravmärkt framför konventionellt, resultatet skiljer sig dock för olika livsmedel. Faktorn inkomst har vi observerat flera samband gällande, då de högre inkomstintervallen verkar vara synonymt med den högsta angivna betalningsviljan för Bregott. För äggen däremot syns inget tydligt samband mellan högre inkomstintervall och högre betalningsvilja. Ytterligare en faktor som har stor påverkan på betalningsviljan är pris, då större prisskillnader mellan konventionellt och Kravmärkt resulterat i att fler väljer det konventionella alternativet. Individuella preferenser som visat att konsumenten väljer att prioritera miljömärkningar visar att en viss kännedom existerar, men skillnad mellan kännedom och faktiskt agerande föreligger. Vilket även tidigare forskning styrker. Preferenser styr inte konsumtionen i samtliga fall, utan pris verkar vara största influerade faktorn. Detta kan grunda sig i omständigheterna, som bland annat i denna studie skulle kunna vara att urvalspopulationen består av studenter.

    Panel cointegration of Chinese A and B shares2009Inngår i: Applied Financial Economics, ISSN 0960-3107, E-ISSN 1466-4305, Vol. 19, nr 23, s. 1859-1871Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We study information flows in China's stock markets. By using panel data methods we test for a unit root in the price premium of domestic investors’ A shares over foreign investors’ B shares, as well as cointegration between the A- and B-share prices on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. We find that the A-share premia are nonstationary, and that the A- and B-share prices are not cointegrated up till January 2001. After February 2001, when domestic investors were allowed to trade B shares, the A-share premia become stationary and the A- and B-share prices cointegrated. One interesting result from the panel data analysis is that most firms’ A and B shares are cointegrated, but not all firms. Cointegration is more likely for firms with a small A-share premium, low ratio of nontradeable shares, high growth rate and large B-share market capitalization relative to the A-share market capitalization. Our findings suggest that the relaxation of the investment restrictions decreased the segmentation between the A- and B-share markets in China.

    The possible effects of the blue economy on gender equality in the Republic of Seychelles2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In order to ensure the Earth’s future prosperity and welfare gender inequalities need to be tackled and our marine environment needs to be safeguarded. In this thesis we therefore evaluate the possible effects of a blue economy on gender equality in the Republic of Seychelles. Using a qualitative methodology, we have conducted 21 semi-structured interviews with a total of 35 respondents. These including people working at grassroots level, in non-governmental organisations and within the governmental bodies in Seychelles. In order to assist the collection and analysis of the data, we developed a theoretical model portraying in what ways the blue economy can affect gender equality in the country via three main components; maritime sustainability, technological innovation and new market and job opportunities. The empirical results demonstrate that the blue economy framework through these three components can affect gender equality, both in the short and long-term. If proven to be inclusive and implemented in the correct way, our findings portray that the blue economy will offer many opportunities. This affecting gender equality in diverse ways, with our main results showing that the concept will (i) help single mothers through factors such as increasing food security, water quality and new job opportunities; (ii) encouraging women to enter into more technological and/or male dominated fields; (iii) motivating boys to remain in school or help dropouts to venture into more practical fields.

    An Empirical Assessment of the N-Shaped Environmental Kuznets Curve Hypothesis2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In order to combat global warming and climate change issues and facilitate economic prosperity in the same time, it is important to understand the possible tradeoffs between economic growth and environmental degradation. In this thesis, we evaluate the hypothesis of an N-shaped environmental Kuznets curve (EKC). Using panel data analysis, we investigate the relationship between CO2 emissions, GDP per capita, renewable energy consumption, technological development, trade, and institutional quality for 74 countries over the period of 1994 to 2012. We find (i) evidence for the Nshaped EKC when using pooled OLS regressions for all income groups but upper-middleincome countries; (ii) heterogeneous results regarding the N-shaped EKC across income groups and quantiles when using quantile regressions; and (iii) a clear and consistent negative relationship between renewable energy and CO2 emissions, indicating the importance of promoting greener energy to combat climate change.

    Den här uppsatsen behandlar ämnena kartellbildning och eftergiftsprogrammet, samt byggbranschen. Syftet är att undersöka om det svenska eftergiftsprogrammet har förutsättningar för att avskräcka från kartellbildning i byggbranschen. För att undersöka detta kommer uppsatsen även att lyfta fram vilka förutsättningar som finns för karteller att verka i branschen. Med hjälp kartellteori identifieras faktorer som kan tänkas underlätta för karteller att verka, och med hjälp av eftergiftsteori kommer faktorer identifieras i programmet som kan tänkas hjälpa till att motverka kartellbildning. Med utgångspunkt i teorin och de faktorer som hittats kommer förhållandena i byggbranschen att undersökas.Vårt resultat visar att branschen i nuläget är relativt stabil med goda vinstmöjligheter och innehar inträdeshinder vilket tyder på att kartellbildning kan gynnas och att karteller troligen existerar i branschen. Resultatet visar även att eftergiftsprogrammet verkar ha möjligheter att avskräcka från kartellbildning genom att bidra med misstro mellan potentiella kartellmedlemmar. Dock verkar effekten bero på, åtminstone till viss del, antalet företag som överväger att ingå i ett samarbete. Att eftergiftsprogrammet är lika avskräckande i alla delar av branschen är alltså inte alls säkert. Vi kan framförallt förvänta oss att eftergiftsprogrammet “söndrar och härskar” bland de karteller med många medlemmar, och vilka verkar i de delar av byggbranschen som moderniserats.
