    Restrictions on Competition in Municipal Competitive Procurement in Sweden2005In: International Advances in Economic Research, ISSN 1083-0898, E-ISSN 1573-966X, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 329-342Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The bidding process in public procurement in Sweden is a first-price sealed bid auction. Although there is a competitive effect on the bids in this type of auction, the contracting entity can, through the choice of procurement procedure, restrict the number of bidders. This paper studies this choice and imposes an implementation cost on the contracting entity to motivate such a restriction. The results, based on data for Swedish municipalities, suggest that contract specifications and municipality characteristics (that are assumed to influence the implementation cost) affect the volume of the procurement and the number of bidders but not necessarily the choice of procurement procedure.

    Dynamite Regulations: The Explosives Industry, Regulatory Capture and the Swedish Government 1858-19482017In: International Advances in Economic Research, ISSN 1083-0898, E-ISSN 1573-966X, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 191-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we argue that the regulation of the explosives industry in Sweden between 1858 and 1948 can give a slightly different perspective on regulatory capture. In this case it was the upstart company, the Nobel Dynamite Company, and not the established explosives companies that in negotiation with the regulator succeeded in establishing new national regulations. Through three different cases we show that the method behind this successful capture was indirect and direct with a common trait of risk minimizing for the public that developed in cooperation with the regulator.
