    • A behaviour-based approach to the estimation of poverty in India 

      Almås, Ingvild; Kjelsrud, Anders Grøn; Somanathan, Rohini (Discussion paper;2/2013, Working paper, 2013-01)
      Since the late 1970s, the price indices underlying the poverty lines in India have been updated using aggregate indices. Widespread criticism of these indices led to the adoption of a new o cial methodology in 2011 based ...
    • A Bellman approach to periodic optimization problems 

      Kvamsdal, Sturla F.; Maroto, José M.; Morán, Manuel; Sandal, Leif K. (Discussion paper;19/16, Working paper, 2016-11-30)
      We consider an infinite horizon optimization problem with arbitrary but finite periodicity in discrete time. The problem can be formulated as a fix-point problem for a contraction operator, and we provide a solution scheme ...
    • A bioeconomic analysis of an age-structured fish stock continuous in time and age 

      Steinshamn, Stein Ivar; Golubtsov, Peter (Working paper;2014:15, Working paper, 2015-03)
      An age-structured bioeconomic model, that is completely continuous in state and time, is developed. To make the model more realistic, a nonlinear recruitment function is introduced and steady state solutions are studied ...
    • A bridge between continuous and discrete-time bioeconomic models: Seasonality in fisheries 

      Kvamsdal, Sturla F.; Maroto, José M.; Morán, Manuel; Sandal, Leif K. (Discussion paper;20/16, Working paper, 2016-11-30)
      We develop a discretization method for continuous-time bioeconomic models. Based on this method, we develop a discrete-time bioeconomic model to analyze seasonality in fisheries. The discretization method consists of three ...
    • Abusive transfer pricing and economic activity 

      Nielsen, Søren Bo; Schindler, Dirk; Schjelderup, Guttorm (Discussion papers;21/14, Working paper, 2014-05)
      This paper investigates how concealment costs of transfer pricing and the prob- ability of detection affect transfer pricing and firm behavior. We find that transfer pricing in intermediate production factors does not ...

      Narbel, Patrick A.; Isaksen, Elisabeth T. (Discussion paper;16/14, Working paper, 2014-04)
      Assuming that emissions originate from the consumption of goods and services, we study the relationship between consumption-based per capita carbon footprint and per capita expenditure for Norway, using 2007 data. A ...
    • Access price regulation facilitates strategic transfer pricing 

      Fjell, Kenneth; Foros, Øystein (Working Paper, Working paper, 2005-10)
      Access price regulation is used in telecommunications to prevent that a vertically integrated firm, that controls an essential input, raises the rivals` costs. When the authorities remove the access price as a strategic ...
