Abstract

Vi är många som närmar oss ett vägval: antingen kan vi börja på en yrkesväg som leder till guld och gröna skogar, eller fortsätta trampa en allt smalare och allt mer eftersatt stig. Den här boken vänder sig till dig som är nyfiken på vad det är som förändras i Sverige och världen idag, vad vi kan lära oss av historiska omställningar och vilka branscher som kan påverkas, blomstra – eller dö.

Oavsett om det är teknologisk utveckling eller oförutsedda globala händelser som orsakar branschförändringar är en sak klar: förändringarna sker snabbt. Många kommer inte hinna med tåget. Det här är guiden till framtidens yrken för dig som inte vill bli kvar på perrongen.

Abstract

China is currently the world’s largest installer of wind power. However, with twice the installed wind capacity compared to the United States in 2015, the Chinese produce less power. The question is: Why is this the case? This article shows that Chinese grid connectivity is low, Chinese firms have few international patents, and that export is low even though production capacity far exceeds domestic production needs. Using the tools of Austrian economics, China’s wind power development from 1980 to 2016 is documented and analyzed from three angles: (a) planning and knowledge problems, (b) unproductive entrepreneurship, and (c) bureaucracy and government policy. From a theoretical standpoint, both a planning problem and an entrepreneurial problem are evident where governmental policies create misallocation of resources and a hampering of technological development.

Abstract

China is currently hailed as the world’s premier wind power producer. However, despite twice the installed wind power capacity compared to the United States in 2015, the Chinese installed capacity produces less power. Grid connectivity is remarkably low, Chinese firms have few international granted patents, and export is minimal even though production capacity far exceeds the domestic production needs. Using the tools of Austrian economics, failures in China’s wind power development from 1980-2016 is documented and analysed. From a theoretical standpoint, both a planning problem and an entrepreneurial problem is evident where governmental policies create misallocation of resources and a hampering of technological development.
