  1. 1. Sources of TFP Growth in Indian Manufacturing Sector: A Frontier Approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Author : Nisha Gurulingappa Koppa; [2019]
    Keywords : Total Factor Productivity growth; Technical Progress; Technical Efficiency Change; Stochastic Production Frontier; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Traditionally, Total Factor Productivity (TFP) growth, interpreted as growth due to technological advancement, is considered as the main source of long-term economic growth as other factors of input i.e. labor and capital are subjected to diminishing returns. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dissecting the Comparatively Low Education Premium in Sweden - an Empirical Approach

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : David Lindquist; Tim Lundqvist; [2018]
    Keywords : Returns to Tertiary Education; Mincer Earnings Function; Blinder-Oaxaca Decomposition; Sweden;

    Abstract : Previous studies show that Sweden has the lowest rate of return to tertiary education in the OECD, significantly lower than its Nordic neighbors. Common factors suggested by conventional theory in explaining differences in the education premium are related to relative supply and demand of skilled labor, productivity, labor market features and fiscal policy.

  3. 3. Soil organic carbon storage, distribution and characteristics in two contrasting permafrostaffected environments : Evaluating the role of alpine and lowland tundra areas in the permafrost carbon feedback

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Didac Pascual; [2018]
    Keywords : soil organic carbon; permafrost; tundra; alpine; climate change; feedback; mapping; landcover; landform;

    Abstract : An important portion of the large northern permafrost soil organic carbon (SOC) pool might be released into the atmosphere as greenhouse gases following permafrost thawing and subsequent SOC decomposition under future warming conditions, resulting in a warming amplification known as the permafrost carbon feedback. Improved knowledge about the amount, composition and distribution of the permafrost SOC pool is essential when assessing the potential magnitude and timing of the permafrost carbon feedback.

  4. 4. What is driving energy intensity decline in Swedish manufacturing? A decomposition analysis

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Clara Schultz; [2016]
    Keywords : Energy intensity; Log Mean Divisia Index LMDI decomposition; Structural change; Induced technological change; Swedish manufacturing;

    Abstract : This paper uses decomposition techniques to analyse factors influencing electricity intensity in Swedish manufacturing over the period 1993-2012. The results of the analysis show that both changes in the composition of the sector (the structure effect) and technological change within manufacturing industries (the technology effect) have contributed to an aggregate decline in electricity intensity.

  5. 5. Modelling vegetation dynamics and carbon fluxes in a high Arctic mire

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Laura Reinelt; [2015]
    Keywords : methane dynamics; biogeochemical cycling; vegetation dynamics; ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; geography; physical geography; high Arctic wetland; Zackenberg; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : High Arctic wetlands are an important component of the global climate system. Nevertheless estimations of their expected response to climate change and associated climate-feedbacks have large uncertainties. Improving models for vegetation and carbon dynamics of ecosystems is an important step towards making predictions more accurate. READ MORE
