    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Intra-industry trade; determinants; comparative costs; factor intensity; product differentiation; elasticity of substitution; economies of scale; quasi-homothetictastes; Sweden; Economics; Nationalekonomi; intra-industry trade; quasi-homothetic tastes;

    Sammanfattning : The conclusions are that a traditional factor proportions model seems neither theoretically nor empirically to explaing IIT. However, a relaxation of the assumption of homogeneous products in an industry gives rise to several implications for IIT. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Impact of international competition on Swedish manufacturing : individual and firm-level evidence from the 1990s

    Författare :Nannan Lundin; Pär Hansson; Lars Lundberg; Jozef Konings; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Nationalekonomi; export; firm-level productivity; reallocation; import discipline; market structure; mark-up; product differentiation; matched employer-employee data; inter-industry wage structure; nationalekonomi; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of four papers examining the impact of international competition on Swedish manufacturing and labor market during the 1990s. By using detailed individual and firm-level information I aim to investigate how increased exposure to international trade, in terms of both export orientation and import penetration, affects technology development, profitability and wage structure.

  4. 4. Effects of temperature and terrestrial carbon on primary production in lake ecosystems

    Författare :Mohammed Hamdan; Jan Karlsson; Pär Byström; Erin R. Hotchkiss; Lars-Anders Hansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lakes; primary production; benthic; pelagic; carbon dioxide limitation; light limitation; nutrient limitation; browning; warming; allochthonous carbon; grazing; trophic cascades;

    Sammanfattning : Climate warming is predicted to affect northern lake food webs in two ways: (1)directly via changes in water temperature and ice conditions, and (2) indirectlyvia changes in catchment characteristics and processes that influence input ofallochthonous coloured dissolved organic matter (cDOM) and nutrients. Input ofcDOM increases carbon dioxide (CO2) availability, causes brownification andreduced light conditions, and may increase nutrient availability especially forpelagic primary producers. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Tackling barriers to firm trade : liberalisation, migration and servification

    Författare :Magnus Lodefalk; Fredrik Sjöholm; Pär Hansson; Holger Görg; Örebro universitet; []

In Essay 1, we carefully model trade liberalisation scenarios that include the key elements of the WTO Doha round, scenarios that are implemented in a computable general equilibrium model. LÄS MER
