    New study: No evidence of ETS cost pass-through in the fertiliser industry

    Previously this year, a report was published suggesting that the EU industry had historically been able to pass through the costs of the EU ETS to final consumers. If this was true, it would suggest that the competitive position of EU industry was strong enough vis-à-vis foreign producers to allow price increases in the European products.

    In our analysis, we show for the fertiliser industry that the above-mentioned report in fact fails to provide a credible answer to the question of whether prices have increased in response to increased ETS costs. This is due to a number of methodological and data related weaknesses in their econometric approach.

    New study: Affordable housing generates economic and social benefits

    There are a number of both economic and social arguments for promoting affordable housing in the larger cities.

    Affordable housing ensures that workers with a low and middle level of education can afford to live in the cities. Having a local labour force for lower and middle income jobs reduces recruitment difficulties and lowers the upward pressure on wages required to offset longer commuting times.

    A number of low and middle skilled jobs also complement higher skilled jobs and help generate and support economic growth in the larger cities. 

    Our analysis also shows that affordable housing can allow low-income families to live in parts of the city where they would otherwise not be able to afford to live, and that this can increase the social mobility among children from low-income families.

    Today, Tine Jeppesen presents the results at BL – Danish Social Housing’s Management Conference in Nyborg, Denmark.
