Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance

Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance with Johan Karlsson, JIBS/CeFEO

 

Title: "To be or Not to Be: The Entrepreneur in Endogenous Growth Theory".

(Authors: Dan Johansson, Magnus Henrekson and Johan Karlsson)

 

 

Date: Monday, May 3

Time: 12:10-12:55

Zoom: https://ju-se.zoom.us/j/65965469113

 

Abstract:

We examine the conceptualization of entrepreneurs in neo-Schumpeterian growth theory, which has reintroduced entrepreneurs into mainstream economics. Specifically, we analyze how neo-Schumpeterians relate to the contradiction between the entrepreneur-centered view of Schumpeter (1934) and the entrepreneurless framework of Schumpeter (1942), with the two frameworks entailing vastly different economic and policy implications. The analysis is based on a review of approximately 750 peer-reviewed articles over the period 1990–2018. The articles were identified using text mining methodology and supervised machine learning. The results show that the literature leans towards Schumpeter (1942); innovation returns are modeled as following an ex ante known probability distribution. By assuming that the outcomes of innovation activities are (probabilistically) deterministic, the Schumpeterian entrepreneur becomes redundant. In addition, the literature abstracts from genuine uncertainty, thus evading central issues regarding the economic function of the entrepreneur, especially with respect to disruptive innovations, ownership, and profits. To incorporate genuine uncertainty, the literature needs to adopt a broader conceptual foundation that goes beyond equilibrium modeling.

You are most welcome to join us for the “Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance”presented by Oleg Badunenko from Brunel University London

 

Title:

The Great Recession: Sectors, Efficiency, Technological innovation, Capital deepening, and Labour mobility

 

Date: Monday, 10 May
Time: 12:10-12:55

Room: https://ju-se.zoom.us/j/65965469113
Fix Meeting-ID for Spring 1, 2021: 659 654 691 13

 

Abstract

We propose a new decomposition of aggregate productivity growth that accounts for sectoral efficiency and technology changes as well as capital deepening and provide new evidence on the sources of productivity growth in OECD countries.

Extended Abstract

In this paper, we analyze aggregate labor productivity of developed economies in three periods: (i) years before (2002-2006), (ii) leading to (2006-2009), and (iii) recovery from the global financial crisis (GFC) (2009-2014). First, we decompose aggregate productivity growth into components attributable to intra-sectoral productivity growth effect (within component) and effect of employment share reallocation that is split into the static and dynamic components. We use data for 10 sectors from 26 countries. We confirm that the within component is the key driver of labor productivity growth in good years and in the recovery period. However, we find that it is the major culprit in years leading to GFC. We, therefore, study the factors that affect the within component by employing a non-parametric production frontier approach to conceptually decompose the within component into components attributable to efficiency change, technological change, and capital deepening. The retrenchment in technological progress followed by efficiency losses plays on average the most important role in explaining the collapse of productivity growth in years leading to GFC. Efficiency losses were highest in ICT, manufacturing, construction, utilities, and wholesale. In the recovery period, technological progress has played the largest role in manufacturing, finance, information, and wholesale. In particular, the rate of technological progress in manufacturing has surpassed its level in the pre-crisis period. Productivity is, however, still mired by efficiency losses with exceptions of the agriculture and construction sectors. Capital deepening kept on driving up productivity in all periods. Capital deepening contribution has been especially prominent in the recovery period. To our knowledge, this is the first study that uses sectoral data on capital to analyze the role of sectoral dynamics in terms of efficiency, technology, and capital deepening in aggregate productivity growth. Doing so allows to identify the relative role of these three factors to productivity growth.

Weblearn: Webinar on challenges for durability

Aluminium is known to be a metal that is resistant to corrosion, but when we work with aluminium alloys this is not always true. Alloying elements are added to Al to increase the mechanical performances, but can be detrimental to the durability of the metal.  

In this webinar, we will focus on understanding how alloying element influence corrosion resistance of Al alloys and what we should consider when choosing and testing an Al alloy. 

After attending this webinar you will know more about: 

  • How the alloy chemical composition affects corrosion resistance 

  • What are the possible degradation mechanisms of Al alloys 

  • How manufacturing process affect the durability of Al alloys 

Register for the webinar, that is in English only, no later then 19 May here

Higher seminar: DESIGNING FOR SITUATED KNOWLEDGE IN A WORLD OF CHANGE

Professor Nina Bonderup

In this talk, I shall address a basic question in education:
How can students learn to put knowledge, developed in one context, to use in other contexts?

This question poses a major challenge for the educational systems of today because of the following conundrum: in contemporary society, people are required to traverse a range of different settings with different competence demands, and they often have to utilize knowledge across these different settings. However, several strands of research (e.g. practice theory, situated learning, embodied cognition) join in pointing out that knowledge is situated, i.e. acquires form and content from the context in which it is learnt.

Transfer of knowledge across settings is therefore no straightforward matter. It involves transformation of the situatedly learned knowledge so that it fits the new setting. Learning to do so emerges as crucial for students of today, and facilitating transformation becomes a key task for many educational systems.

In the talk, I present research on knowledge transformation, on design principles to support it, and on the implementation of specific learning designs in educational practice. The talk draws on the results of the recent project Designing for situated knowledge in a world of change (2015-2020), financed by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance ­­­­presented by Almas Heshmati

Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance ­­­­presented by Almas Heshmati from Jönköping International Business School

Title: Green innovations and patenting renewable energy technologies

 

Date: Monday, May 24
Time: 12:10-12:55

Abstract
We examine the impact of regulation and policies on green patent generation and evo-lution of renewable energy technologies in the OECD countries. Public and private investment, investment in education, research and development, and environmental regulation are considered. There is considerable variation in innovation systems and investments in renewable energy, and in outcomes. We assess the impact of envi-ronmental stringency and environmental taxes and regulations on renewable energy patents. The considerable heterogeneity requires emphasis on country effects and a separation of general from speci?c green innovation outcomes. We account for country-speci?c innovation factors. A balanced panel of 27 OECD countries is exam-ined between 1990 and 2018. A renewable patent model is estimated by different panel data models and estimation methods. We ?nd considerable sensitivity to model assumptions and inference techniques. The study is suggestive, however, of some renewable energy approaches for achievement of OECD environmental goals.
