  • Emotional reactions to losing explain gender differences in entering a risky lottery
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Judgment and decision making. - 1930-2975. ; 5:3, s. 159-163
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A gender difference in risk preferences, with women being more averse to risky choices, is a robust experimental finding. Speculating on the sources of this difference, Croson and Gneezy recently pointed to the tendency for women to experience emotions more strongly and suggested that feeling more strongly about negative outcomes would lead to greater risk-aversion. Here we test this hypothesis in an international survey with 424 respondents from India and 416 from US where we ask questions about a hypothetical lottery. In both countries we find that emotions about outcomes are stronger among women, and that this effect partially mediates gender difference in willingness to enter the lottery.

  • Unstable Identities: Stable Unsustainability
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Sustainable Development. - Wiley InterScience. - 0968-0802. ; 18:3, s. 119-122
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The identity concept has emerged as a key analytical concept in the social sciences in the past decades. In both scientifi c accounts and everyday use, the identity concept has tradi- tionally been seen as something that individuals possess. This view has however been heavily criticized by a social identity strand of social science, where identity is a matter of a negotiation where different social roles are learned in relations with others. The relational view of identities creates some serious problems for the sustainability challenge. In a world of relational identities, individuals are engaged in identity-creating interactions every day. Key problems are that the interactions, in urban environments, are highly commercialized; consumption cues are emotionally based and speak to our senses, and outnumber the competing cues several times over. Sustainable lifestyles are thus very fragile.

  • Thick performances, not just thick descriptions : the processual nature of doing qualitative research
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Qualitative research in organization and management. - 1746-5648. ; 6:2, s. 191-208
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the consequences of doing research that uses qualitative approaches. Anchored in a process ontology, this paper starts from the idea that doing research implies a performance in which the researcher is fully immersed, and explores the implications of the processual nature of doing research.Design/methodology/approach – The paper takes use of vignettes; short stories of research in action, told by different researchers that are analyzed to reveal the richness of the situation in question. These vignettes illustrate how performing qualitative research is an emotional, embodied and deeply personal experience.Findings – The authors show that when grounding qualitative research in a process ontology, research is the fruit of the researcher's performance: doing research is performing it, and performing it cannot happen without feeling a wide range of emotions, without appealing to who we are or without questioning what we are doing. Thus, this exploration reveals that doing research is a rich, complex and multi-level experience that mobilizes the whole person conducting this inquiry – that is, that doing research takes the form of a thick performance.Originality/value – The value of the paper lies in its roots in a process ontology to understand the doing of qualitative research, which makes it possible to fully acknowledge the importance of subjectivity in all the steps that make up the research endeavor, from the fieldwork to writing – thus offering not only a richer image of what research is about, but an image that is also closer to the experience of doing it.

  • Subsidiary importance in the MNC : What role does internal embeddedness play?
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: International Business Review. - 0969-5931. ; 20:2, s. 151-162
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper addresses the issue of how a subsidiary's internal and external embeddedness interact in generating the importance of the subsidiary vis-a-vis the MNC as a whole. We take previous findings of the positive impact of external embeddedness on a subsidiary's importance as our starting point and consider two questions: (a) how does the internal embeddedness of a subsidiary affect its organisational importance, and (b) how do a subsidiary's internal and external embeddedness interact in generating organisational importance? We test hypotheses reflecting these questions on data from 97 foreign subsidiaries belonging to Swedish multinationals. We find that internal embeddedness is negatively related to a subsidiary's importance to product development but unrelated to its importance to production development. We also find that internal embeddedness dilutes the positive impact of external embeddedness on a subsidiary's importance to production development. We discuss the findings in the light of the extant literature and consider implications for future research and MNC managers.

  • Managing and measuring employee health and wellbeing: : a review and critique
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change. - Emerald Group Publishing. - 1832-5912. ; 6:4, s. 436-459
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the case for taking employee health and wellbeing into account in some way and to consider a range of objections that might be raised against such exercises. Design/methodology/approach – The paper identifies the existence of a persistent sickness absence as a cause for concern for a range of stakeholders and how it might be accounted for in the light of recent developments within the intellectual capital field. Attention then turns to some of the difficulties such well meaning interventions might encounter, and briefly considers how a self-accounting approach might in some part overcome these.Findings – The paper finds that a programme of empirical research within the field of employee health and wellbeing is now required to ensure that employee health and wellbeing into account. Practical implications – While predominantly a discursive contribution to the literature, the paper incorporates some discussion of innovative accounting interventions.Originality/value – In contrast to viewing sickness absence from a cost perspective, the paper encourages stakeholders to embrace a wider spectrum of ways of seeing to better understand employee health and wellbeing issues in the work place.

  • The makings of a statement: : accounting for employee health
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Human Resource Costing and Accounting. - Emerald Group Publishing. - 1401-338X. ; 14:4, s. 286-306
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore how the idea of health statements is constructed and on what assumptions it rests. Design/methodology/approach – Published health statements from the Swedish municipality of Umea ̊ are analysed in terms of the rhetoric of the arguments that are presented. This is done in order to identify the assumptions the arguments rest on.Findings – Although no empirical proof is provided, the arguments presented in the health statements of Umea ̊ municipality follow a logic that goes from success factors to good results via employee health and satisfaction as a proxy of internal quality of work that in turn is assumed to create good quality of service. The construction of that logic is concomitantly the production and reproduction of a moral system of values that rest on the ambiguousness and implicitness. Originality/value – A discussion about the assumptions expressed in Umea ̊ municipality’s health statements, how they are constructed to make the management accounting of employee health work and the construction of morals that is implicit in that system.

  • Digging wider and deeper : Revealing the hegemony of project studies
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Project Organisation and Management. - 1740-2891. ; 2:1, s. 1-15
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Building on a brief illustration, this article discusses the need for new empirical fields and methods in project management research. This would not only provide novel insights into project practices and management, but would also entail questioning the hegemony (Gramsci, 1988) of project management and project research. We argue that the hegemony is upheld by, or perhaps even constructed through, the language and the ideal images of the area, developed by project researchers and used by project practitioners; adding to what could be called 'the social power' (Bourdieu, 1991) of those involved in what are called 'projects' and 'project management'. It is also argued that the social power of those familiar with 'projects' and 'project management' is sustained by the silence of all those involved in similar practices, but who do not master the terminology of project work.

  • Demokratisera nationalekonomin : Problmet är att nationalekonomi inte bara är vetenskap utan samtidigt ideologi
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Grus & Guld. - Skövde : JAK Medlemsbank. - 1650-470404. ; :2, s. 27
  • Tidskriftsartikel (populärvet., debatt m.m.)abstract
    • Krav på demokrati ställs i många länder men sådana krav är relevanta i en del sammanhang också i vårt eget land och till och med i universitetsvärlden. Nationalekonomi betraktas som vetenskap men är samtidigt ideologi. Neoklassisk teori ligger nära neoliberalismen som ideologi och legitimerar därmed densamma. Problemet är att neoklassisk teori befinner sig i en monopolsituation vid våra nationalekonomiska institutioner. Detta har samtidigt en ideologisk innebörd. Endast pluralism i meningen att konkurrens mellan olika teoretiska perspektiv uppmuntras gör undervisning och forskning i nationalekonomi mer förenlig med normala demokratiska ideal.

  • Från monopol till konkurrens och pluralism inom nationalekonomin
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Fria Tidningen. - Skarpnäck : Fria Tidningen. - 1654-9449. ; :11, s. 4-5
  • Tidskriftsartikel (populärvet., debatt m.m.)abstract
    • Undervisningen i nationalekonomi vid Sveriges universitet sker enligt neoklassisk teori. Denna teori är speciell ur ideologisk synvinkel och legitimerar neoliberalismen som ideologi. Införande av pluralism vid nationalekonomiska institutioner är ett viktigt steg ur demokratisk synvinkel och när det gäller att komma till rätta med en ur miljösynpunkt ohållbar samhällsutveckling.

  • Sustainability economics as a contested concept :  
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Ecological Economics. - Elsevier. - 0921-8009. ; 70:6, s. 1019-1020
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Sustainability economics as a concept is interpreted differently in different publications. Some authors look for a modification of mainstream neoclassical economics while the present author regards sustainability economics as part of a different and separate economics paradigm.
