Discussion papers

Discussion papers presenterer forskningsstoff som sikter mot å ende opp som en internasjonal publikasjon og distribueres for kommentarer og forslag.

Et Discussion paper kan være lengre og fyldigere enn det som er vanlig for en artikkelved at blant annet ugjennomsiktige mellomrekninger, resultater og bakgrunnsmateriale blir inkludert.

  • Field of study, earnings and self-selection

    Discussion Papers no. 794

    Lars J. Kirkebøen, Edwin Leuven og Magne Mogstad


    Why do individuals choose different types of post-secondary education, and what are the labor market consequences of those choices? We show that answering these questions is difficult because individuals choose between several unordered alternatives.

    Discussion Papers no. 787

    Discussion Papers no. 786

    Zhiyang Jia og John K. Dagsvik

  • The fiscal incentive of GHG cap and trade

    Discussion Papers no. 785

    Jørgen Juel Andersen og Mads Greaker
