The dynamics of a behavioral two-sex demographic model
(Discussion Papers;No. 247, Working paper, 1999)
Abstract: In this paper, we examine the dynamic properties of a particular demographic model. An essential part of the model is the marriage function which is derived from assumptions about the behavior of women and men ...
Consumer demand and unobservable product attributes
(Discussion Papers;No. 223, Working paper, 1998)
Traditional approaches to consumer demand modelling ignores the problem associated with product heterogeneity where important product characteristics are latent. The point of departure in the present study is a particular ...
Price indexes for elementary aggregates derived from behavioral assumptions
(Discussion Papers;No. 234, Working paper, 1998)
This paper discusses the properties of price- and Cost-of-Living indexes that follow from specific assumptions about the structure of consumer preferences. Of particular interest are indexes for elementary aggregates. In ...
Uncertainty and international negotiations on tradable quota treaties
(Discussion Papers;No. 233, Working paper, 1998)
Negotiating an international tradable quota treaty between industrialised and developing countries is complicated by uncertain marginal abatement costs and non-uniform quota prices. An initial quota allocation that implies ...
The response by the Norwegian aluminium industry to changing market structure
(Discussion Papers;No. 237, Working paper, 1998)
This paper analyses how changes in market structure have affected the margins (measured by the Lerner index) of Norwegian aluminium plants. Instead of showing the expected negative trend, due to increased competition ...
Is the distribution of income compatible with s stable distribution?
(Discussion Papers;No. 246, Working paper, 1999)
Mandelbrot (1961) proposed to apply the class of Pareto-Levy distributions - which belong to the Stable distributions - as a framework for modelling income distributions. He also presented theoretic arguments in favor ...
Choice among lotteries when preferences are stochastic
(Discussion Papers;No. 221, Working paper, 1998)
Abstract: This paper discusses the problem of specifying probabilistic models for choices (strategies) with uncertain outcomes. The point of departure is an extension of the axiom system of the von Neumann-Morgenstern ...
Nonparametric identification of discrete choice models
(Discussion Papers;No. 222, Working paper, 1998)
Abstracts: In this paper we give simple proofs of identification results in discrete choice models for the case where neither the derteministic part nor the distribution function of the random parts of the utility function ...
A Behavioral two-sex marriage model
(Discussion Papers;No. 238, Working paper, 1998)
In this paper we discuss a particular marriage model, i.e., a model for the number of marriages for each age combination as a function of the vectors of the number of single men and women in each age group. The model is ...
