    Generationsfonder: En jämförelse mellan generationsfonderna i Sverige2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the future the Swedish pension system will face major problems. With an increasing aging population combined with a decreasing share of working population the financing of the pension system is becoming a bigger problem than previously predicted. This means the individual himself will have a bigger responsibility to invest money for their future retirement. It has been shown that a large proportion of the people who invests for their future pension have neither the interest nor the time to actively invest their pension capital. To make it easier for those who invest for their retirement, some Swedish banks have created so-called generation funds. These funds adapts to the age of the person who invests. This means that the funds risk decreases with the age of the investor. Therefore, this results in the fact that the individual who has invested in the generation funds does not need to worry about lowering the risk when they are approaching retirement.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate and compare the different generation funds offered on the Swedish market. Further study is also intended to show whether an application of two more active strategies as investment strategies has had a higher return than investing in the generation funds.

    In examining the generation funds, evaluation dimensions Treynor and Sharpe ratio have been used to calculate the risk-adjusted returns. Furthermore, an empirical test has been conducted in which a monthly saving of 500 SEK per month has been combined with a buy-and-hold strategy to see which of the banks generation funds have provided the highest returns during the period 2004-2011. This has in turn been compared with applying the moving average as a technical investment strategy to identify buy and sell signals.

    Nedskrivningsprövning av goodwill: En transparensfråga2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this essay is to examine the information that the companies of the OMX30 Stockholm stock exchange presents regarding their goodwill impairment testing and to see how the information complies with the recommendations of IASB.

    Approach: To address the research question the companies financial reports of 2011were examined by using a qualitative content analysis to categorize and analyse the information, mainly from the note-form disclosures. The essay seeks to examine the compliance between companies given information and the recommendations of IASB. Hence the developed theoretical framework contains the recommendation that relates to goodwill impairment (IAS 36), relevant parts of the IASB conceptual framework and former research regarding goodwill impairment testing.

    Findings: The findings of this essay is that many companies present information that complies with the IAS 36 to a certain degree but when also taking the conceptual framework of IASB into account the compliance decreases due to lack of information regarding chosen standpoints.

    Två sidor av samma mynt: Brand alliance bidrar till brand confusion i bankbranschen2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bergslagens Sparbank as well as other independent(fristående) sparbanker have discoveredthat some of their customers can not separate them from Swedbank. Some customers maythus believe that they are the same bank. This study seeks factors that may contribute to thisproblem, and measures that can counteract. We refer to this problem as brand confusion andmainly have our focus on factors derived from brand alliance, but also from the companyitself and the banking industry. We use a qualitative method where we collect empirical datafrom interviews with four sparbanker. Strategic differences between them, allow us to seehow different factors can contribute to and or counteract brand confusion. This study showsthat the graphic profile, that includes the common symbol and colors, may have great impactwhen it comes to sparbankerna. However, the messy business history that includes thecomplex partner relationship could also have a great impact. Finally, we would also like tomention the importance of how all involving parties in a brand alliance communicates this. Ifit does not come through loud and clear to the customer that there is a partnership, strongsimilarities and ambiguities may affect customers to believe two companies are one and underthe same brand.

    En kvalitativ studie om varför Facebook används, hur man skyddar sin personliga information samt interagerar med andra Facebook-användare.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Facebook är idag ett av de största virtuella sociala nätverken som finns. Till en början var det tänkt att Facebook skulle användas av studenter vid Harvard universitet men idag är det långt ifrån bara studenter som använder Facebook. (Boyd & Ellison 2008)

    Detta arbete syftar till att ta reda på varför Facebook används och hur det används när det kommer till säkerhet och kommunikation. All empirisk data samlades in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex aktiva Facebook-användare med hopp om att få djupa och ärliga svar för att lättare kunna analysera resultatet.

    Det som framkom i undersökningen var att Facebook används för att underlätta kommunikation mellan användare och att kommunikation via Facebook bidrar till att användare sparar tid då de annars inte hinner umgås med alla sina vänner i det verkliga livet. Det framkom även att Facebook-användare är medvetna om vad de gör på Facebook; de vet vad för information som finns tillgänglig på deras profil och vilka informationen är tillgänglig för. Användare på Facebook är också noggranna med vilka de är vän med och inte tillåter användare de inte känner finnas med i deras vänlista.

    Värdering och svar: Skillnader mellan öppna och binära frågor vid en contingent valuation-studie på ekologiska varor2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vid användning av metoden contingent valuation erhålls ofta olika resultat beroende på sättet respondenterna frågas på. Tidigare studier har visat att binära frågor leder till en högre estimering av betalningsviljan än öppna frågor, samt att skillnaden mellan dem är lägre vid användning av privata varor än vid kollektiva varor. Uppsatsens undersökning är ett steg för att förbättra förståelsen inom detta område. Syftet är att undersöka om de estimerade betalningsviljorna, härledda från uppsatsens experiment, inte skiljer sig signifikant åt då man använder sig av öppna och binära frågor vid utvalda privata varor. Resultat av t-test, där de binära svaren är justerade från anomalier, visar att de estimerade betalningsviljorna inte skiljer sig signifikant åt för sju av uppsatsens varor. Resultatet visar vidare att de estimerade betalningsviljorna skiljer sig signifikant åt för fem av uppsatsens varor. Vid dessa är den estimerade betalningsviljan högre vid de öppna frågorna. Detta anses bero på problem med bias.

    Does Part-Time Sick Leave Help Individuals with Mental Disorders Recover Lost Work Capacity?2014In: Journal of occupational rehabilitation, ISSN 1053-0487, E-ISSN 1573-3688, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 344-360Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper aims to answer the question whether combining sick leave with some hours of work can help employees diagnosed with a mental disorder (MD) increase their probability of returning to work. Given the available data, this paper analyzes the impact of part-time sick leave (PTSL) on the probability of fully recovering lost work capacity for employees diagnosed with an MD.

    Methods: The effects of PTSL on the probability of fully recovering lost work capacity are estimated by a discrete choice one-factor model using data on a nationally representative sample extracted from the register of the National Agency of Social Insurance in Sweden and supplemented with information from questionnaires. All individuals in the sample were 20-64 years old and started a sickness spell of at least 15 days between 1 and 16 February 2001. We selected all employed individuals diagnosed with an MD, with a final sample of 629 individuals.

    Results: The results show that PTSL is associated with a low likelihood of full recovery, yet the timing of the assignment is important. PTSL's effect is relatively low (0.015) when it is assigned in the beginning of the spell but relatively high (0.387), and statistically significant, when assigned after 60 days of full-time sick leave (FTSL). This suggests efficiency improvements from assigning employees with an MD diagnosis, when possible, to PTSL.

    Conclusions: The employment gains will be enhanced if employees with an MD diagnosis are encouraged to return to work part-time after 60 days or more of FTSL.

    Romanians, Hungarians and their wages, in transition, in Romania2012In: Economic Modelling, ISSN 0264-9993, E-ISSN 1873-6122, Vol. 29, no 6, p. 2673-2685Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Legally binding treaties or memorandums have been used over time to regulate the issue of national borders of many European countries. As a result, relatively large groups of people have become ethnic minorities in other countries. They may conserve their ethnic identities, and therefore their children may accumulate ethnic human capital (e.g., language, culture, and religion) in addition to the general human capital of the country. Therefore, they can get access to an appropriate occupation linked by tradition or other factors to their ethnic group. This paper uses estimates from a selection model with an endogenous switch among three broad types of occupational groups to analyze the composition of the wage gap between Romanians and ethnic Hungarians in Romania before and during the transition from a planned to a market economy. The results suggest that the institutional settings of the controlled economy allowed Romanians to work in occupations that gave them the best returns, while the changes during the transition years allowed ethnic Hungarians to work in occupations that gave them the best returns.

    The Effects of Social Media Use on the Well-Being of Users: The Wonderland of HaikuJAM2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Internet usage in general and social networking platforms (SNPs) in particular have dramatically changed the way we spend our time. A relevant question is how this change in time-use affected the well-being of people in general and younger people in particular. We answer this question by reporting, for the first time, detailed information about time-use in SNPs and the well-being of Jammers, the users of HaikuJAM (HJ), a mobile app that aims to boost emotional well-being using collaborative writing techniques. HaikuJAM is output-dependent. Our explorative analysis finds that Jammers who spent most of their SNP time in HJ have, on average, a slightly higher level of both life satisfaction and other domain satisfactions (especially satisfaction with family and friends) than the other Jammers. They also have a few sociodemographic characteristics that are statistically significant different from the other Jammers (i.e., they are slightly older and more of them work and are married). Predominant Jammers also have higher expectations about the importance of the use of HaikuJAM for their well-being and their personal development.

    Our results suggest that the app features attract a specific group of users who have a relatively high level of satisfaction with their life in general and with their family and friends, in particular. It is quite possible that creative individuals who might be introverts and/or are lonely are using HaikuJAM not only to write but also to connect with other individuals who like to write. Despite the fact that our analysis is largely exploratory, our results suggest a few possibilities to addresses the causality between users’ time spent in a SNP and their well-being.

    Gender and occupational wage gaps in Romania: from planned equality to market inequality?2015In: IZA Journal of European Labor Studies, ISSN 2193-9012, Vol. 4, no 10, p. 1-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Romania, the communist regime promoted an official policy of gender equality for more than 40 years, providing equal access to education and employment and restricting pay differentiation based on gender. After its fall in December 1989, the promotion of equal opportunities and treatment for men and women did not constitute a priority for any governments of the 1990s. This paper analyzes both gender and occupational wage gaps before and during the first years of the transition to a market economy and finds that the communist institutions did succeed in eliminating the gender wage differences in female- and male-dominated occupations but not in gender-integrated occupations. During both regimes, wage differences were, in general, much higher among workers of the same gender working in different occupations than between men and women working in the same occupational group, and women experienced a larger variation in occupational wage differentials than men.

    Never Give Up?: The Persistence Of Welfare Participation In Sweden2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Long-term social assistance dependency is a growing concern in Sweden and other European countries. In order for policy makers to design effective welfare reforms it is important to know how strong the state dependence associated with social assistance is in the population and to what extent it varies with different factors, and among different groups. We estimate the effect of the state dependence in social assistance for Sweden during the 1990s, for both Swedish-born and foreign-born. Using a dynamic discrete choice model that controls for unobserved heterogeneity and the initial conditions problem, we found that the effect is three times larger for foreign-born compared to Swedish-born. However, when the effect is distributed over time, it decreases and loses significance after three years for both groups. This suggests that more resources should be allocated for programs that connect working-age recipients with the labor market as early as possible.

    State dependence in Swedish social assistance2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the economic integration of immigrants has been the subject of a large number of studies, the research on the effect of intermarriage on immigrants’ economic integration/assimilation is scarce and has no equivalence in the literature on the receipt of social assistance. This study fills this gap in the literature by estimating the structural state dependence in social assistance in Sweden during 1990-1999 by different types of households, which were grouped by the country of birth of the sampled individual and his/her partner. Using a dynamic discrete choice model that controls for unobserved heterogeneity and the initial conditions problem, we find that state dependence in Swedish social assistance was relatively strong during 1990-1999, and differed extensively across different household types. Although Swedish-born partners who separated are one of the groups with the lowest receipt of social assistance (i.e., 1.08-1.76%), these individuals exhibit the highest state dependence (24.4 percentage points). Foreign-born singles have almost the same value for the state dependence, but these individuals also have the highest receipt of social assistance (18.47%). Surprisingly, the group with the lowest receipt of social assistance (0.27-3.06%) and the lowest state dependence (4.7 percentage points) are the foreign-born women living together with a Swedish-born man.

    State dependence in Swedish social assistance in the 1990s: What happened to those who were single before the recession?2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a dynamic discrete choice model that controls for unobserved heterogeneity and the initial conditions problem, we estimate the state dependence in Swedish social assistance for Swedish-born and foreign-born who were single in 1990 before the recession period started. The estimates of the structural state dependence for Swedish-born singles indicate that it is unaffected by the event of living together with a partner, and the effect is significantly lower for women than for men. For the foreign-born singles, the state dependence for those who stay single the whole decade is equally strong for men and women, and almost not affected when the foreign-born single started to live together with a foreign-born partner.
