A country with well-developed financial intermediaries should tend to specialize in industries highly dependent on external finance. We find that differences in financial systems among OECD-countries have a stronger impact on the pattern of specialization than differences in human or physical capital. Further, the financial system gives rise to comparative(More)

This algorithm, however, has the drawback that its performance deteriorates when the population size grows. The same drawback applies also to other non-dominating(More)

The e®ect of imposing di®erent numbers of unit roots on forecasting accuracy is examined using univariate ARMA models. To see whether additional information improves forecasting accuracy and increases the informative forecast horizon, we crossrelate the time series for inbound tourism in Sweden for di®erent visitor categories and estimate vector ARMA(More)
In recent years robots have become more adaptive and aware of the surroundings which enables them for use in human-robot collaboration. By introducing robots into the same working cell as the human, then the two can collaborate by letting the robot deal with heavy lifting, repetitive and high accuracy tasks while the human focuses on tasks that needs the(More)
