This paper presents the first study of how parents make competitiveness choices for their children. In an experiment with 1480 parents and adolescent children, parents choose if their child will do a task for a competitive or non-competitive pay scheme. The paper establishes a number of novel facts on parents' choices for children. First, parents choose more competition for boys than for girls. The gender gap in parents' choices is smaller than that in children's own choices. Second, two main mechanisms explain the gender gap in parents' choices: their beliefs about children's preferences and paternalistic behavior. Third, parents' choices are more responsive to the ability of boys than girls, which results in many high-ability girls not entering into competition. Fourth, parent gender matters: fathers are more likely than mothers to enter their child into competition. Finally, children are unaware of the gender difference in parents' choices and believe that parents will make the same choices for boys and girls. The set of findings sheds new light on the role of parents in determining children's long-term outcomes and on the intergenerational transmission of preferences.</p><p>&nbsp;</p> 1 2019 0 PubID 30829 5 0 Pub_TypeNumber A03/19 5 1 Pub_Writer Jonas Tungodden 5 2 Pub_Title When parents decide: Gender differences in competitiveness 5 3 Pub_Publication /Files/Filer/Publications/A03_19.pdf 5 4 Pub_AbstractEn <p>The gender difference in willingness to compete has been proposed as an explanation for the observed gender difference in education and labor market outcomes.

A case study of the Norwegian banking market /Files/Filer/Publications/A02_19.pdf <p>In this paper we attempt to provide evidence on the effect of credit portfolio diversification in two dimensions, industrial and geographical diversification. Further, we analyze whether differences in banks' risk exposure are related to different ownership structures. We use an empirical approach and comprehensive data from the Norwegian banking market, containing annual information on 142 banks over the period 2005-2013. We measure the impact on two different variables reflecting risk in different ways; risk of insolvency by using the Z-score and banks' credit portfolio risk using the loan loss ratio. Our findings suggest that banks' choice of diversification strategy has a significant impact on banks' risk exposure. We find that increased industrial diversification reduces Norwegian banks' risk. Moreover, our findings indicate that increased geographical diversification increases banks&rsquo; risk of insolvency. We do however not find conclusive evidence suggesting that bank ownership is relevant when explaining banks&rsquo; risk exposure in the Norwegian banking market.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 1 2019 0 PubID 30827 7 0 Pub_TypeNumber A02/19 7 1 Pub_Writer Mathilde Ragnhildstveit and Caroline Silver 7 2 Pub_Title The Effect of Credit Portfolio Diversification and Ownership on Banks’ Risk Exposure.

The reform facilitates a difference-in-difference research design due to geographical variation in the scope for competition. Using rich administrative data covering the universe of NHS hospital admissions from 1998 to 2005, we find that hospitals in more competitive areas have a sharper reduction in AMI mortality, readmissions, and length of stay than hospitals in less competitive areas.

We ask whether there exist strategic effects that reduce firms&rsquo; incentives to do so. To answer this question, we first note that it is optimal for a firm that price discriminates to set the purchasing price equal to marginal costs from consumers who buy from a rival. This is true independently of whether the rival has made any non-price commitments (e.g. strategic product differentiation). In contrast, if a firm uses uniform pricing, the rival has incentives to make strategic commitments that soften competition. Consequently, we find that firms might find it optimal to commit to uniform pricing to avoid being trapped in a highly competitive equilibrium. The key insight is that a firm&rsquo;s incentives to undertake strategic price-softening behavior depend on the rival&rsquo;s choice between uniform and personalized pricing, and not the firm&rsquo;s own choice.</p> 1 2018 0 PubID 29814 19 0 Pub_TypeNumber A07/18 19 1 Pub_Writer Øystein Foros, Hans Jarle Kind and Mai Nguyen-Ones 19 2 Pub_Title Competition with Personalized Pricing and Strategic Product Differentiation 19 3 Pub_Publication /Files/Filer/Publications/A07_18.pdf 19 4 Pub_AbstractEn <p>Consumers leave increasingly more digital footprints that improve firms&rsquo; ability to practice personalized pricing (first-degree price discrimination).

The empirical section consists of four parts. We start by considering innovative activities in Norway in an international perspective, and continue by focusing on the growth in patents and their international connectedness as far as US patents involving actors residing in Norway are concerned. Then we investigate the development concerning the international dispersion of co-inventors in these patents and the distribution of co-inventors across countries.

Two thirds of international organisations utilise virtual teams, to solve complex and creative tasks. Through a study of 770 student teams spread over 42 countries, we find that increased communication is not always conducive to creative output. Rather, we find that an increase in synchronous high richness communication positively relates to the creative output in global virtual teams, while increasing asynchronous low richness communication yields the opposite relationship. Our findings also suggest that increased low richness communication shares a stronger positive relationship with relationship conflict than does high richness communication. We therefore suggest that global virtual teams should place a greater emphasis on synchronous high richness communication rather than low richness communication when solving complex tasks.</p> 2 2018 0 PubID 29796 34 0 Pub_TypeNumber R05/18 34 1 Pub_Writer Anders B.

We use comprehensive data from the Norwegian banking market, containing information on 127 banks and approximately 70,000 firms. We find that small and newly established firms receive an increase in average interest rate of 2 percentage points after a bank withdrawal. This is 1.7 percentage points higher than for large and mature firms. Small and newly established firms also experience a decrease in debt ratio of 0.027, while the decrease is even more substantial for large and mature firms. Our findings indicate that small and newly established firms are hit harder in terms of increased interest rate, while the decrease in debt ratio could be caused by changes in credit supply or demand.

Fixed salary versus fee-for-service /Files/Filer/Publications/A_0318.pdf <p>We analyse the effects of fee-for-service versus fixed salary on the treatment decisions of general practitioners (GPs) and on patients&rsquo; health outcomes. Using rich Norwegian register data during 2009-2013, we find that GPs respond strongly and consistently to changes in remuneration type. Compared with fixed salary, GP payment by fee-for-service leads to an increase in the supply of consultations and a higher provision of medical services (along several dimensions) per consultation.
