Working Paper No. 139

Dynamic Micro-Macro Market Coordination and Technical Change

This paper discusses the nature of macro productivity change from the perspective of a Schumpeterian micro-to-macro (M-M) model. It emphasizes the dynamics of resource allocation through markets (firms) where agents are both price and quantity setters. We find that the organization of market processes (the market regime) is important for the rate of total factor productivity change at aggregate levels . This is especially so when relative prices are shifty as a consequence of the ongoing market process and markets, notably the capital markets, are in disequilibrium.

In this book Andreas Bergh, Therese Nilsson, IFN and Lund University, and Daniel Waldenström, IFN and Paris School of Economics, France, review the latest research on the relationship between inequality and health. What does inequality mean for our health? Does increasing income inequality affect outcomes such as obesity, life expectancy and subjective well-being?


Seminars organized by IFN


To present ongoing research informal brown-bag seminars are held on Mondays at 11:30 am. This is an opportunity for IFN researchers to test ideas and results.

Academically oriented seminars are most of the time held on Wednesdays at 10 am. At these events researchers from IFN and other institutions present their research.
