Abstract

Huvudtesen i denna studie är att innovationer driver den ekonomiska utvecklingen, att innovationer skapas i teknologiska system och omvandlas till ekonomisk verksamhet i kompetensblock, och att industriell dynamik uppstår i konfrontationen mellan utbudssidan (teknologiska system) och efterfrågesidan (kompetensblock). Institutionella förhållanden påverkar såväl teknologiska system och kompetensblock som deras interaktion. För stabil långsiktig tillväxt på makronivå krävs kontinuerlig industriell dynamik, dvs. experimentering och stark turbulens, på mikronivå. Entreprenörskap används här som en samlande term för innovativ verksamhet. Uppsatsen disponeras på följande sätt. Först görs en kort översikt av existerande teorier om sambandet mellan entreprenörskap och ekonomisk tillväxt. Därefter presenteras och diskuteras teknologiska system, kompetensblock och industriell dynamik som de centrala byggstenarna i en ny och mera omfattande teori. I det avslutande avsnittet diskuteras på vilka sätt entreprenörskap skapar industriell dynamik och ekonomisk tillväxt.

Abstract

The market-inspired reforms of New Public Management have been particularly pronounced in Swedish local government. Notably, municipally owned enterprises (MOEs) have rapidly grown in numbers. Principal-agent theory gives rise to the hypothesis that the massive introduction of MOEs has impacted negatively on the conditions for accountability in Swedish local government. To study this, social network analysis was employed in mapping networks for 223 MOEs in 11 strategically chosen municipalities, covering a total of 732 politicians. The analysis reveals substantial overlaps between principals (representatives of the ultimate stakeholders, citizens) and agents (the boards of the MOEs). Hence, corporatization of public services seems to imply worrisome entanglements between the politicians who are set to steer, govern, and oversee MOEs on the one hand, and the board members of MOEs on the other. The increasing numbers of MOEs may therefore have adverse effects on accountability in important and growing parts of Swedish local government.

Abstract

This paper is focused on automotive stamping tools and dies as well as the impact of 3D metal printing and metals related 3D-printing on design and production of such tools and dies. The purpose has been to find out the current industrial potential of 3D-printing as far as lead time, costs, shapes, material usage, metal piece size, surface roughness, hardness, strength, and machinability are concerned. The business transformational impact of 3D-printing is also addressed in this paper. The obtained results show that the lead time can be halved, the costs are somewhat higher, and the strength, hardness, surface roughness, and machinability of the 3D-printed metallic tools and dies are as good as those of the conventionally made. The maximum size of a metal piece that can be 3D-printed today by Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) is, in the best case, 500 mm × 500 mm × 500 mm. 3D-printing can also be used for the pattern to make the mold box in iron and steel casting. It is also possible to eliminate the casting pattern, since the mold box can be 3D-printed directly. All this has started to have a large business impact, and it is therefore of great significance to outline and execute an action plan almost immediately.

Abstract

Using matched employer-employee full population data on regional migrants in Sweden, this paper addresses the question whether the urban wage premium, and ‘thick’ labour market matching effects, are to be found across all educational groups, and whether the population threshold for these types of effects varies by educational category. Estimating initial wages, average wage level and wage growth 2001-2009, we find similar wage premiums for all workers in the three largest metropolitan areas, but that there are distinct population thresholds for these type of effects, regardless of educational background. However, job search behaviour as explaining dynamic effects over time seems to pertain mostly to those with higher education.
