      This paper examines Norwegian gasoline pump prices using daily station-specific observations from March 2003 to March 2006. Whereas studies that have analyzed similar price cycles in other countries find support for the ...
    • Gas storage valuation : price modelling v. optimization methods 

      Bjerksund, Petter; Stensland, Gunnar; Vagstad, Frank (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2008-10)
      The existence of a financial gas market motivates the analysis of gas storage as a separate asset, using the market value context for utilization and valuation. In the recent literature, gas storage is typically analysed ...
    • A general stochastic calculus approach to insider trading 

      Biagini, Francesca; Øksendal, Bernt (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2002-12)
      The purpose of this paper is to present a general stochastic calculus approach to insider trading. In a market driven by a standard Brownian motion B(t) on a filtered probability space (Ω, F, {F}t>0, P), by an insider we ...
    • Gibbard-Satterthwaite and an Arrovian Connection 

      Stensholt, Eivind (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2008-06)
      A very close link of G-S, the Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem to Arrow’s "impossibility" theorem is shown. G-S is derived as a corollary: from a strategy-proof singleseat election method F is constructed an election method ...
    • Give and take in dictator games 

      Cappelen, Alexander Wright; Nielsen, Ulrik H.; Sørensen, Erik Øiolf; Tungodden, Bertil; Tyran, Jean-Robert (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      It has been shown that participants in the dictator game are less willing to give money to the other participant when their choice set also includes the option to take money. We examine whether this effect is due to the ...

      Evstigneev, Igor V.; Hens, Thorsten; Schenk-Hoppé, Klaus Reiner (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2005-09)
      The paper examines a dynamic model of a financial market with endogenous asset prices determined by short run equilibrium of supply and demand. Assets pay dividends, that are partially consumed and partially reinvested. ...
    • Global warming and international fishery management : does anticipation of the temperature change matter? 

      Liu, Xiaozi; Heino, Mikko (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-12)
      This paper investigates the effects of climate-induced rising of ocean temperature on the optimal fishing policies in a two players’ non-cooperative game setting. We compare reactive management, under which the manager ...
    • Grading standards, student ability and errors in college admission 

      Møen, Jarle; Tjelta, Martin (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-06)
      Grades are important for admission of students in most higher education programmes. Analysing admission and student performance data at a major Norwegian business school, we find that the grading practice of teachers ...
    • Greening the Vehicle Fleet: Evidence from Norway’s CO2 Differentiated Registration Tax 

      Yan, Shiyu; Eskeland, Gunnar S. (Discussion paper;14/16, Working paper, 2016-08-31)
      Fiscal policies are used to improve vehicle fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector. Years of forceful reform in Norway may be seen as informative. From 2007, Norway has linked its new vehicle ...
    • Guaranteed investment contracts: distributed and undistributed excess return 

      Miltersen, Kristian R.; Persson, Svein-Arne (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2000)
      Annual minimum rate of return guarantees are analyzed together with rules for distribution of positive excess return, i.e. investment returns in excess of the guaranteed minimum return. Together with the level of the annual ...
    • Har eiendomsskatten økonomiske konsekvenser for norske selskaper?: En analyse av eiendomsskattens påvirkning på lokalt næringsliv 

      Stensland, Anne Karin; Hamran, Ingrid (Master thesis, 2016)
      Den norske eiendomsskatten er interessant å studere i den forstand at den er en frivillig kommunal skatt, der kommunen selv råder over inntektene. Mange argumenter eksisterer for hvorfor skatten er bra eller dårlig for ...
    • Harmonization of Corporate Tax Systems and its Effect on Collusive Behavior 

      Schindler, Dirk; Schjelderup, Guttorm (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2007-01)

      Harvest control rules have become an important tool in modern fisheries management, and are increasingly adopted to provide continuity in management practices, to deal with uncertainty and ecosystem considerations, and to ...
    • Harvesting in a Fishery with Stochastic Growth and a Mean-Reverting Price 

      Kvamsdal, Sturla F; Poudel, Diwakar; Sandal, Leif Kristoffer (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      We analyze a continuous, nonlinear bioeconomic model to demonstrate how stochasticity in the growth of fish stocks affects the optimal exploitation policy when prices are stochastic, mean-reverting and possibly harvest ...
    • Heterogeniety and limited stock market participation 

      Aase, Knut K. (Discussion paper;05/14, Working paper, 2014-02)
      We derive the equilibrium interest rate and risk premiums using recursive utility with heterogeneity in a continuous time model. Two ordinally equivalent versions are considered, each associated with a di erent set of ...

      Sandal, Leif Kristoffer; Steinshamn, Stein Ivar; McKelvey, Robert W. (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2002-07)
      The 1993 U.N. Straddling Stock Agreement prescribes a multi-national organizational structure for management of an exploited marine fish stock, one whose range straddles both .Extended Economic Zones. (EEZs) and high seas ...
    • Holomorphic convexity and Carleman approximation by entire functions on Stein manifolds 

      Manne, Per Erik; Wold, Erlend Fornæss; Øvrelid, Nils (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)

    • Hotelling competition with multi-purchasing 

      Anderson, Simon P.; Foros, Øystein; Kind, Hans Jarle (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-12)

    • How electricity price spikes can help overcome the energy efficiency gap 

      Mauritzen, Johannes (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Using data on Google searches, I suggest that the spiky nature of electricity markets has a strong effect on searching for information on energy efficiency goods. I identify the informational effect by decomposing prices ...
