Discussion papers are preliminary research reports circulated for comments and suggestions.

Editors: Kjetil Telle, Bjart Holtsmark, Erling Holmøy, Terje Skjerpen, Kenneth Wiik, Aud Walseth (secretary)

  • Optimal location of renewable power

    Discussion Papers no. 862

    Henrik Bjørnebye, Cathrine Hagem, and Arne Lind

    Published:

    A decarbonization of the energy sector calls for large new investments in renewable energy production. When choosing the location for increased production capacity, the producer has typically limited incentives to take fully into account the investments costs of the subsequent need for increased grid capacity.

  • Immigration and the Dutch disease

    Discussion Papers no. 860

    Ådne Cappelen and Torbjørn Eika

    Published:

    The EU-enlargement in 2004 increased labour migration and affected the Norwegian labour market in particular. We study how this modified the Dutch disease effects during the resource boom 2004- 2013.

  • Identifying fertility contagion using random fertility shocks

    Discussion Papers no. 861

    Sara Cools and Rannveig Kaldager Hart

    Published:

    Does the fertility behavior of one individual affect the fertility choices of another? This study aims to estimate fertility contagion net of unobserved heterogeneity, using sibling networks as an empirical example.

  • Life expectancy and claiming behavior in a flexible pension system

    Discussion Papers no. 859

    Christian N. Brinch, Dennis Fredriksen, Ola Vestad

    Published:

    We study the relationship between early claiming of pensions and incentives in the highly flexible Norwegian public pension system, measuring incentives to claim based on an estimated model for expected longevity.

  • Long term impacts of class size in compulsory school

    Discussion Papers no. 858

    Edwin Leuven and Sturla A. Løkken

    Published:

    How does class size in compulsory school affect peoples’ long run education and earnings?

  • Labor supply analysis with non-convex Budget sets without the Hausman approach

    Discussion Papers no. 857

    John K. Dagsvik and Steinar Strøm

    Published:

    When the budget set is non-convex the application of the Hausman approach to estimate labor supply functions will in general be cumbersome because labor supply no longer depends solely on marginal criteria (first order conditions).

  • Phasing out coal and phasing in renewables – good or bad news for arctic gas producers?

    Discussion Papers no. 856

    Lars Lindholt and Solveig Glomsrød

    Published:

    This paper examines to what extent downscaling of global coal based electricity generation encourages gas demand and affects regional activity in gas production, with emphasis on the arctic regions.

  • Closing the gender gap in pensions. A microsimulation analysis of the Norwegian NDC pension system

    Discussion Papers no. 855

    Elin Halvorsen and Axel West Pedersen

    Published:

    In this paper we use an advanced micro-simulation model to study the distributional effects of the reformed Norwegian pension system with a particular focus on gender equality.

  • The path of labor supply adjustment: Sources of lagged responses to tax-benefit reforms

    Discussion Papers no. 854

    Zhiyang Jia and Trine E. Vattø

    Published:

    The standard static labor supply model ignores that it takes time for individuals to adjust to a tax-benefit reform.

  • Heterogeneity of the Carnegie Effect

    Discussion Papers no. 853

    Erlend E. Bø, Elin Halvorsen and Thor O. Thoresen

    Published:

    The Carnegie effect (Holtz-Eakin, Joualfaian and Rosen, 1993) refers to the idea that inherited wealth harms recipient’s work efforts, and possesses a key role in the discussion of taxation of intergenerational transfers.

  • MPC heterogeneity and household balance sheets

    Discussion Papers no. 852

    Andreas Fagereng, Martin B. Holm and Gisle J. Natvik

    Published:

    Using Norwegian administrative data, we study how sizable lottery prizes affect household expenditure and savings.

  • Problematic response margins in the estimation of the elasticity of taxable income

    Discussion Papers no. 851

    Kristoffer Berg and Thor O. Thoresen

    Published:

    The elasticity of taxable income (ETI) is known to represent a summary measure of tax efficiency costs, which means that further information about the behavioral components of the ETI is not required for its use in tax policy design.

  • Multigenerational persistence: Evidence from 146 years of administrative data

    Discussion Papers no. 850

    Jørgen Modalsli

    Published:

    This paper uses Norwegian census data on occupational associations among grandfathers, fathers and sons from 1865 to 2011 and finds significant grandparental influence throughout the period.

  • Using common factors to identify substitution possibilities in a factor demand system with technological changes

    Discussion Papers no. 849

    Håvard Hungnes

    Published:

    In this paper, I investigate the importance of taking account of technological changes by allowing for different kinds of common factors, both within and between industries.

  • Carbon dynamics related to tree planting on new areas in Norway

    Discussion Papers no. 848

    Bjart Holtsmark

    Published:

    Extensive tree planting on new areas has been suggested as a climate policy measure in Norway. This paper presents some preliminary calculations related to carbon dynamics of such a measure when the tree planting takes place on areas with relative young birch forests.

  • On the measurement of long-run income inequality: Empirical evidence from Norway, 1875-2013

    Discussion Papers no. 847

    Jørgen Modalsli, Rolf Aaberge and Anthony B. Atkinson

    Published:

    In seeking to understand inequality today, a great deal can be learned from history. However, there are few countries for which the long-run development of income inequality has been charted. Many countries have records of incomes, taxes and social support. This paper presents a new methodology constructing income inequality indices from such tabular data.

  • Oil consumption subsidy removal in OPEC and other Non-OECD countries

    Discussion Papers no. 846

    Finn Aune, Kristine Grimsrud, Lars Lindholt, Knut Einar Rosendahl and Halvor Briseid Storrøsten

    Published:

    This paper studies the oil market effects of phasing out oil consumption subsidies in the transport sector.

  • Discouraged worker effects and barriers against employment for immigrant and non-immigrant women

    Discussion Papers no. 845

    Terje Skjerpen, Tom Kornstad and John K. Dagsvik

    Published:

    A phenomenon observed in many labor markets is that the supply of labor appears to depend on business cycles. In other words, workers who are searching for work become “discouraged” under unfavorable business cycle conditions because they believe that their chances of finding an acceptable job are so small that the costs of searching for work outweigh the benefits from searching.

  • Electronic monitoring and recidivism

    Discussion Papers no. 844

    Synøve N. Andersen and Kjetil Telle

    Published:

    The replacement of custodial with non-custodial sanctions holds the potential to reduce recidivism as well as other costs associated with imprisonment.

  • Modelling OPEC behaviour

    Discussion Papers no. 843

    Pål Boug, Ådne Cappelen and Anders Rygh Swensen

    Published:

    We analyse the behaviour of OPEC as a group for the period 1992 to 2015 by formulating a model that encompasses several of the alternatives discussed in the literature.
