  1. 1. Firms and people in place : driving forces for regional growth

    Författare :Wenjuan Li; Einar Holm; Urban Lindgren; Bo Malmberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; regional growth; endogenous factors; place attractiveness; population redistribution; vicinity; workplace; local area; hinterland; spatial model; Sweden; Human geography; economic geography; Kulturgeografi; ekonomisk geografi;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis is to quantitatively study the driving forces and mechanisms for regional growth from an endogenous and exogenous perspective and reveal the most important factors contributing to regional growth, by focusing on three aspects: local labour market, the supply side and the demand side of the labour market. The thesis is designed to use Swedish micro register data to develop spatial models with higher spatial resolution. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of growth hormone on bone tissue in transgenic mice

    Författare :Jonas Sandstedt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; bone; ovariectomy; orchidectomy; growth; Interleukin-6; titanium; transgenic mice;

    Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) affect bone-tissue in both humans and rodents. Also sex steroids are important for growth and the maintenance of normal bone physiology. The specific aims of this study were to investigate how high levels of GH affects bone tissue in mice and to determine whether these effects are dependent on an intact gonadal function. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cardiovascular effects of growth hormone, IGF-I and growth hormone secretagogues

    Författare :Åsa Tivesten; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :cardiovascular system; growth hormone; insulin-like growth factor-I; growth hormone secretagogues; echocardiography.;

    Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) may exert direct growth-promoting and metabolic actions on target tissues, but most of its effects are mediated by circulating (endocrine) or local (auto-/paracrine) insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I). The GH/IGF-I system has an important role during cardiac development and for maintaining the structure and function of the heart. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Essays on R&D and Growth

    Författare :Henrik Braconier; Nationalekonomiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; International commerce; Technology; Scale effects; Innovation; Imitation; R D; Endogenous Growth; Internationell ekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this study is to analyze some aspects of the relationship between R&D and economic growth. In Chapter 2 we analyze how costly imitation may be incorporated into an R&D-driven endogenous growth model. In the model, optimizing firms allocate resources to innovation or imitation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Growth and Business Cycles -Swedish Manufacturing Industry 1952-2001

    Författare :Camilla Josephson; Lennart Schön; Deirdre Nansen MC Closkey; Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Ekonomisk och social historia; Social and economic history; Nutidshistoria från 1914 ; Contemporary history since 1914 ; Manufacturing industry; Institutional change; Knowledge accumulation; Opportunity costs; The cointegrated VAR model; Business cycles; Economic growth; TFP growth; Cyclical economics; Konjunkturteori; cykliska förlopp; Contemporary history;

    Sammanfattning : This study shows that the mechanisms behind knowledge accumulation and the sources of productivity growth differ from industry to industry depending on what is produced and what technology is used. Although it is apparent to most researchers in the field that the only way to explain long-run growth in output per capita is through technological progress and accumulation of knowledge that counteract the dampening effect of diminishing returns, we are still in the dark about how such mechanisms operate.
