    Location of leisure: the New Economic Geography of leisure services2017In: Leisure Studies, ISSN 0261-4367, E-ISSN 1466-4496, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 203-219Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding more about the geographic location of leisure services is an important quest for research. For a long time now in developed economies, almost all employment growth is occurring within the service sector. In this sector, leisure services are fast growers. This means that the location of these services is important for economic growth and for employment opportunities of local market areas. Regional policy-makers time and again highlight these sectors as future engines of growth. This paper investigates the role of local demand in determining the availability and the scale of various types of leisure services. The analysis is motivated by observed regularities that indicate large and persistent interregional differences in the location and growth of leisure services. Based on a New Economic Geography framework, we investigate the role of local and regional demand for the size of leisure services in geographically separate markets in Sweden. We use data for 290 Swedish municipalities for the period 2002–2013 and run year-municipality fixed-effects regressions. Our main findings suggest a strong dependency on local demand, and less on the demand originating from other regions.

    Which retail services are co-located?2014In: International Journal of Retail & Distribution Management, ISSN 0959-0552, E-ISSN 1758-6690, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 281-297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Which retail services are co-located in space? Is it possible to categorize retail stores of different kinds with respect to their location pattern? Acknowledging the spatial dependency between different and similar kinds of retailing activities, the aim of this paper is to find if and to what extent co-location is present in a retail market and what kind of retailing activities are co-located.

    Design/methodology/approach – The authors analyse the co-location of different types of retail stores in Sweden by using geo-coded data. The data they use allows them to pinpoint each establishment in Sweden down to a 250 by 250m square in space. First, they identify a measure of co-location for each retail service by utilizing pairwise correlations between the different retail service establishments with respect to the squares in which they are present. Later, by using the finest level of industrial categorization for all physical retailing activities (and limiting their geographical unit to the Stockholm metropolitan market), they perform factor analysis to nest these retailing activities under relevant categories based on their co-location pattern.

    Findings – In this analysis the authors obtain four major factors for the squares with retail stores, in which several kinds of retail activities are nested. These factors reveal a certain degree of location commonality for the markets in question.

    Originality/value – The authors' empirical design is based on a highly disaggregated spatial information and the methodology is novel in a sense that it has not been used to address a similar question. Rather than sampling, the authors use the total population, where they take all physical retailing activities into account to be able to draw a general picture for the co-location phenomena in the entire retail market.

    Kassaflödesvärdering: En studie i hur antagandena påverkar företagsvärdet2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund

    Antalet svenskar som sparar i aktier har på 20 år mer än fördubblats. Värderingsmetoderna har genom tiderna förändrats. Kassaflödesvärdering dominerar för tillfället tillvägagångssätten att värdera företag/aktier. Det debatteras huruvida kassaflödesvärdering är en pålitlig metod eller ej. Det finns flera kassaflödesmodeller att välja bland. Modellerna bygger på många komplexa antaganden som kan påverka resultatet av värderingen.

    Syfte

    Syftet med undersökningen är att: undersöka och analysera hur kassaflödesmodeller används vid aktievärdering samt hur vridbarheten påverkar användbarheten. Vidare ska vi presentera vilka viktiga antaganden som behövs göras för kassaflödesmodeller och uppvisa hur de inverkar på kassaflödesvärderingen.

    Metod

    Utifrån syftet valdes att använda en kvalitativ metod med personliga och telefonintervjuer som verktyg. Valet av metodansats och verktyg baserades på att djupgående information behövdes för att uppnå syftet

    Slutsats

    Det finns ett flertal kassaflödesmodeller att välja bland; Dividend-Discount modellen, Fritt KassaFlöde till Aktieägare modellen, och Fritt KassaFlöde till Företaget modellen. Undersökningen visade att det är Fritt KassaFlöde till Företaget modellen som nästan uteslutande används mest. Det finns tre olika varianter av dessa kassaflödesmodeller; en med en konstant fas av tillväxt, en med två faser av tillväxt och en med tre olika faser av tillväxt. Det är varianten som behandlar tre olika faser av tillväxt som uteslutande används mest. Anledningen till detta är at den är närmast tillväxtförfarandet i verkligheten. Kassa-flödesmodellerna bygger på komplexa antaganden som i hög grad påverkar värdet, de är alltså vridbara. De antaganden som påverkar värdet mest är: tillväxten, diskonteringsfaktorn och räntan. En ökning i tillväxtantagandet ökar värdet. Ökar diskonteringsfaktorn kommer värdet att minska. Räntan påverkar inte värdet i så stor utsträckning men förändringar i räntan påverkar andra antagandena. Kassaflödesmodellernas vridbarhet har bevisats begränsa användbarheten. Kassaflödesvärdering bör användas som ett komplement till andra värderingsmetoder.

    Budget and Employment Effects of a Change in the Payroll tax: For the manufacturing sector2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is examining the effects of a decrease in the payroll tax and the responding effect on the state budget. The emphasis is on the change in the number of employments for the manufacturing sector as a result of a decrease in the payroll tax. In order to analyze the effect a decrease in payroll tax has on employment, the elasticity of labor demand has been calculated. The result of this regression is significant, and therefore it can be concluded that a change in the payroll tax will have an effect on employment in the manufacturing sector. Since elasticity of labor demand is inelastic, the change in payroll tax will have a small impact on employment. The results of various surveys conducted in other countries are consistent with the findings of this thesis.

    How Micro Retailers Remain Competitive and Successful: A Case Study of Våran Kåk2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The competitive environment in today’s retail industry, with large corporations as well as increased competition from e-commerce, has resulted in the share of sales of micro retailers declining and their competitive position weakened in relation to the larger organisations. However, there are still micro retailers that have been able to stay successful.

    This thesis has implemented an in-depth case study of Våran Kåk, a micro retailer within the apparel sector in Jönköping. Våran Kåk has been able to remain successful despite the increased competition within their industry. The empirical investigation consists of interviews conducted with a manager as well as an employee at Våran Kåk, mystery shops and observations in order to gain an understanding of what makes them successful.

    The research resulted in a model for successful micro retailers, describing how micro retailers can remain successful and competitive in the tough market climate by giving good perceived service, building profitable relationships and having their customers remain loyal.

    Uranium Mining Industry: -A valuation of uranium mining companies2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Over the last three years uranium prices have soard from US $14 per pound (lb) to the current price of US $120/lb and this rapid incline of the commodity have created a boom within the uranium prospecting and min-ing industry. There are currently 435 nuclear reactors all over the world and these reactors demand 180 millions of pounds of uranium each year to run at full production. Currently the uranium mining industry only sup-plies 110 million pounds of the demanded quantity. The remaining 70 mil-lion pounds are coming from secondary sources such as decommissioned nuclear warheads and other sources. Market estimations say that the sec-ondary sources will only cover the shortage up until around 2012 then primary sources have to supply almost the whole quantity demanded. These factors imply that some sort of analysis model for uranium mining companies would be needed.

    Purpose:

    The purpose of this report is to valuate three companies within the ura-nium industry and to establish if the current market value is coherent with the fundamental value of these companies. The authors will propose a valuation model that could be used when valuating companies within the uranium industry.

    Method:

    A qualitative method has been used in order to value three companies within the uranium mining business that are fairly large players on the market. The valuation of these companies is based upon a discounted cash flow analysis, a relative PV valuation and relative valuation. The compa-nies included in the report are corporations that are quoted at Toronto Stock Exchange and they have started mining uranium. Data have been collected through annual reports and the companies Internet pages. Other secondary information such as valuation theories has been collected from academic search engines and books on the subjects.

    Conclusions:

    The current market values of uranium mining companies are not coherent with the actual fundamental values according to the authors. Both funda-mental and a comparative approach could be used when valuing these companies and the most important part in the valuation is to try and fore-cast the commodity price and then to estimate the companies possible mining reserve/extractable resources.

    Trade with emission allowances: the impact on the Swedish paper and pulp industry´s competitiveness2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In January 2005 a trading scheme with emission allowances, including carbon dioxide (CO2), was introduced in Europe. This has influenced the electricity price as well as the price of CO2 emitting production. The paper and pulp industry uses a high share of electricity and emits CO2 and is therefore chosen. This industry is investigated to see if the competitiveness for the industry has been influenced by the emission trading scheme. Since the trial period is too short to give any clear results, USA has been investigated to make comparisons with Sweden. Different theories about the subject together with electricity price and production price data from Statistiska Centralbyrån. A competitiveness model is calculated with help from production prices and show that Sweden has become relatively more competitive compared to the USA since 1995. A reason for this can be the introduction of an emission trading scheme in the USA in 1995. If this is the case, the Swedish paper and pulp industry can face a decrease in competitiveness in the near future.

    Taxes on fossil fuels: an incentive for FDI within the biofuel industry2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The demand for biofuels has increased over the last 30 years and at the same time period the price of oil has risen. In this thesis we have investigated the impact that taxes on fossil fuels had on the demand for biofuels between 1970 and 2003. We have looked at five different fossil fuels; the chosen fuels are the most frequently used. A large impact would lead to an increase in the biofuel market in Sweden and therefore make Sweden a more attractive alternative for foreign investors. The result might indicate trends towards the conclusion that high taxes gets more effective the larger the biofuel market becomes, this since adequate substitutes for fossil fuels are required. Unfortunately, most of our results show insignificant results and therefore no strong conclusions can be drawn.

    Cultural Recognition in One-to-One Internet Advertising2002Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though the world is interconnected through a complex web of transnational networks and the freer flow of trade, the challenges of making local adjustments in marketing activities are more acute now then ever before. Internet is helping to eliminate the distance between nations and between consumers. However, it appears that the emphasis is still on treating customers worldwide as part of one homogenous segment. For example, English is still taken as the net Latin by many firms and predominates most of net communications. Marketers need to take the Internet seriously to reconsider the potential as well as the limitation it possesses in realizing the impact of cultural differences. Apart from language, which is an important element in culture, knowledge of traditions and customs of a specific culture and integration of this knowledge with advertising activities on the internet would differentiate the marketing activity from the similar ones that are being run as well as resulting in higher attention and better interpretation levels. This paper focuses on the use of the Internet for reaching micro segments that recognize cultural differences in the global market place. Doing so, it emphasizes the importance of realizing the differences in language, religion, and specific tastes in advertising activities on the Internet. The varying contributions of these elements to interpretations of messages are determined and policies to be implemented for higher attention rates are suggested. In addition, the challenges exist there of on the Internet, such as presence of inhomogeneous infrastructure facilities and specific consumer concerns are explored throughout the paper. The differences in consumer concerns are sough and the changing availability of Internet, telephony, computer, and legal issues are studied. Finally, the types of firms and industries that can utilize the provided policies for capturing cultural differences are examined. Internet is a very important tool both in terms of communicating messages to micro segments and also for targeting specifically these segments. However, strategies to be implemented in Internet advertisement should be given special emphasis in order to tailor them according to the varieties in cultures. Global Internet advertising mainly promises a potential for services businesses. Both the businesses themselves and the advertisement activities are open to adjustments. Cultural differences can easily be recognized in the activities of services marketing on the Internet due to their flexible natures.

    Identification in Hyper-Loyalty Brand Communities2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For decades, marketers sought "the strategy" for building brand loyalty. When they succeeded in achieving extreme brand loyalty with customers, marketers simply followed the same template for other products and brands without bothering to examine the deeper, phenomenological processes involved with such loyal consumer behavior. Extreme brand loyalty can be thought of as consumer communities (Muniz & O'Guinn, 2001) created around and directed by particular brands--hyperloyalty as defined by McAlexander and Schouten (1998), and Ebstein, Betou, Storakers and Torner (1999). It is critical to comprehend the underlying motives that exist in the marketplace for longterm sustained competitive advantage. Hunt (2002) states that effectiveness and efficiency are the keys for advantageous resources, but are these two criteria sufficient for a full and complete understanding of consumer hyper-loyalty?

    Abstract [en]

    Supply chain management has attracted attention from various multi-disciplinary fields, which include manufacturing, operations management, customer management and transportation. Global sourcing, time and quality based competition, improvements in technology, and environmental uncertainties have placed supply chain management as a timely topic for academic research. Defect-free, fast and reliable delivery has almost become the necessities to be in the market, rather than competitive advantage. Ever stiff competition in the global arena calls for closer coordination and better alignment between supply chain participants. Therefore, a closer examination of supplier and buyer interactions is vital. As price becomes the most important feature of a product and reduces profitability and competitive advantage, and as information technology tools that help in a closer coordination with buyer and supplier emerge, suppliers get engaged in providing services around their products. Moreover, service quality is referred as a more important order winner than the product quality. Yet differentiation via services dimension is not an easy concept to grasp. Firms often perform services according to the norms they have established over years of experience. Though, the breadth of experience commonly varies from one firm to another. Therefore, norms adopted for services vary, too. A norm considered for a specific service in one company might not exist at another company, or even if exist could be underestimated. When placed in the context of complex supply chains, this presents a supplier with often buyers that have different services’ norms. A certain aspect of a supplier’s service might be deemed superior at one buyer, while normal or even inferior at another buyer. Therefore, provision of services in supply chain management presents a promising research area. There is a need to understand if supplier’s provision of services is capable of generating superior or inferior perceived buyer value. For a firm to gain and retain value additive beneficial relationships with its buyers, its offer should often involve some social values (something that will make buyer’s life a better one) either by clearly identifying the needs of its buyers or by outperforming what other suppliers already do. Suppliers demand more information on sophisticated norms and specifications of their buyers to formulate their services. This research attempts to shed the light on the issues discussed, and also uncover the possible causes of superior perceived buyer value creation upon supplier’s provision of services in supply chain. An exploratory research model has been developed by the aid of an analogy from Snell’s Law of the physics as services creation of value has an instantaneous nature like that of the passage of a beam of light from one medium to another one. Two propositions had stemmed from the exploratory research. Firstly, lower operational medium on supply side is likely to cause inferiority in perceived buyer value for an encounter. Secondly, higher operational medium on supply side is likely to cause superiority in perceived buyer value for an encounter. A panel of experts had been devised to confirm usefulness and meaningfulness of the developed model. The research process for the panel of experts was a qualitative technique based on an interpretive orientation. Participants included 9 provincial individuals. In all, there were 19 interviews, involving 9 individuals. In four instances more than one person participated in an interview. Thirteen of the interviews were face-to-face, and three were conducted by telephone. Interviewees confirmed the model by the practices they are involved within the industry, as well as with the exemplifying issues they have presented. No changes were requested for the developed exploratory model. The main contribution of this research endeavor to academia is the developed exploratory model, which explains creation of superior perceived buyer value via provision of services in a supplier-buyer interaction. Therefore, reference disciplines, including supply chain management and services have received contribution. High levels of services are often costly for suppliers to adopt for the entire buyer base due to two major reasons: the unnecessary high costs incurred for buyers who were not necessarily expecting such high services for value creation, and the dramatically raised expectations which will set the base for all forthcoming services of the supplier that’ll force the supplier to perform an ever higher levels of services. Developed model facilitates detection of possible opportunities to improve service levels through which a supplier can create superior perceived buyer value.

It is argued that experiential marketing in the e-banking sector could be the key to greater active online migration of consumers and differentiation among the players. Two leaders of the Turkish e-banking sector, Garanti Bank and Akbank, have been chosen as the focus of exploratory analysis. First, a review of the literature is provided, and current practices are exemplified. This is followed by scale development to measure consumers’ experiences regarding the five experiential modules - sense, feel, think, act and relate. Principal component analysis is conducted on the responses of the pilot study. Findings indicate 3 groups are emerging. These are (1) recognizes the benefit of basic experiential approach, (2) demands specific experiential approach and (3) demands a holistic experiential approach. It is identified that new experiential cultural practices are emerging.

    An Actor-Network Theory (ANT) Approach to Turkish E-Government Gateway Initiative2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are various models proposed in the literature to analyze trajectories of eGovernment projects in terms of success and failure. Yet, only the Actor-Network Theory (ANT) perspective (Heeks and Stanforth, 2007) considers the interaction factors among network actors and actants. This paper proposes the ANT for approaching to the Turkish e-Government Gateway initiative as a case study. In doing so, it provides valuable insight in terms of both local and global actornetworks which surround the initiative.
