No, Mímir Kristjánsson. The value added in Oslo is higher than on the west coast

Your profile nyhetssjefen in the class war, Mímir Kristjánsson, shall be list-top and the mayor-candidate for the party Red in his hometown of Stavanger.

Columnist Mats Kirkebirkeland

is a counselor in Civita and deputy representative to the Norwegian Parliament for the Right.

Last published posts "Full representativeness" would in any event given the victory to the "blue" side in Progress, No state krisepakker because of the weather Let's talk less about Finnmark and more about Akershus Hit better than Shame Norway is one of the most european nations in Europe

On his Facebook profile justifies Kristjánsson, who has a past in the party, the election that "it is time for a shift in Stavanger", and that the city is "the richest city in the richest country in the richest time in history, and yet has barnefattigdommen exploded the last few years."

Whether or not it is time for a shift in Stavanger to the voters to consider in lokalvalget to fall, but it was not the above statement that undertegnende responded to.

In the same post prints the Red-politician Kristjánsson also about value creation and the need for new industrieventyr:

" It is time for a shift in Norway. If we are to build new industrieventyr we have to move the centre of gravity in politics out of Oslo and westwards towards the coast where the values are actually created. The discussions about the future jobs will be better if they are taken on the west coast and not on the west side, ."

community highlights value creation in the own municipality and communities, is as expected, but Kristjánsson takes a fundamental mistake about value creation in multiple areas.

the Values created in fact not (only) in Western norway and along the coast. And all indications are that the "new industrieventyrene" most likely going in Oslo, rather than in Stavanger on the west coast.

As I have written about in the Newspaper before, so there are a lot of myths about value creation in general, and about the value creation in the Oslo especially.

One of them is about that it is along the coast, especially on the west coast, where "the real values" are created. Kristjánsson repeat this myth. But the fact is that the values not (only) is created on the west coast and along the coast.

It is true that the two vestlandsfylkene Rogaland and Hordaland have (or have had) higher value – measured as GDP per capita and GDP per employed person – than the national average, through to be a couple of percentage points above the average over several years. But the other two Vestlandsfylkene, Sogn and Fjordane and Møre and Romsdal, has a lower added value per capita and in employment than the national average.

But the point is that Oslo – where, according to Kristjánsson not created the "actual" values and where there would not can build new "industrieventyr" – has a significantly higher value than the Rogaland and the other vestlands-counties.

While the local government had a value added per employed person on average in 2017, Oslo had a value that was 25 percent higher than the rest of the country. Every person employed in norway had a value creation of about 900.000 million in 2017, while each person employed in Oslo, norway had a value creation on the 1,125 million.

the Equivalent figures for value added per capita was around 488.000 money for Rogaland, while the figure for Oslo was 820.000 money.

But despite the quite significant differences in value creation between Oslo, Rogaland, and the national average, there is much less difference in income per capita between the various counties.

county of Oppland, norway, which has the lowest GDP per employed person with 80 per cent of the national average in 2016, had a per capita income of 94 percent of the national average. While Oslo, which had a value of 125 percent of the national average, had a per capita income of 112 percent of the national average.

Although the value added per person employed and a citizen is significantly higher in Oslo, the citizens of Oslo an income (and consumption) that is closer to the national average than what the added value would indicate. This despite the fact that the price of a variety of goods and services, such as, for example, to stay, is much higher in Oslo than in the rest of the country. Through the tax system transfers, i.e., large values, which are created in Oslo, to the rest of the country.

And before all objections about that, for example, value creation out in the country "recognized" in Oslo, because the head office is located in Oslo, is coming, so reply Statistics Norway (SSB) has calculated this statistic since the 1970s – on this, and a number of other, frequently asked questions and objections about the statistics.

the Problem is that the very many, including Kristjánsson, often believe that the "actual" and "real" added value is the production of tangible goods, such as preferably to be exported to foreign countries.

But it is the production of services, whether this occurs in private or public sector, which accounts for most of Norway's value creation and employment. In 2017 was 78 per cent of all employed persons in Norway are employed in the service industry, often called tertiærnæring. The corresponding figures are total for the industry (sekundærnæring) was 20 per cent.

Even then, Kristjánsson political hero, Einar Gerhardsen, ruled the country in the 1950s there were several employees in the service industries (41 per cent) than in industry (30 per cent).

You get the same picture when it comes to value creation (value added in basic values) in the various industries. While (mainland)industry had a value added of nok 208 billion in 2017, had the retail trade sector to a value of 240 billion.

The oil industry "finance and insurance" and the industry as Kristjánsson worked in that nyhetssjef, "it and media", contributed, respectively, 158 billion and 119 billion in value in 2017. The entire 37 billion more than the "Industry", even though it was 68.000 increase in employment in the latter.

Most of the value creation in the IT/media - and the financial industry happening in Oslo.

It is proper that through large parts of the history, Norway has been a country rich in natural resources, that have lived by the production of different commodities.

But the Norwegian story gives a misleading picture. It is quite possible to have high added value without in particular with the production of either raw materials or industrial products. Countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Switzerland are among the most successful and richest countries in the world, but has not a lot of value creation from natural resources or industrial production.

The most prosperous and productive areas in the world are often capitals such as London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Stockholm and so on, as neither have particularly with the industry - or commodity production. City-states Singapore and Hong Kong are other examples.

the Idea that the Oslo "live to move the paperwork" for the rest of the Uk and that Oslo had not "survived" economically without the rest of Norway, is therefore a myth that should be abolished.

But in today's modern economy, it is also a quite artificial distinction between what is good old-fashioned "industry" and what belongs to the service sector. For example, he uses the word the pharmaceutical industry about an industry that really belongs to the service sector. There is also a lot of overlap between the industry and the service industry. Many of the "classic" manufacturing jobs with service production internally in the companies.

If you have a slightly expanded idea of what can be regarded as an "industry", can the next industrieventyret as well occur in Oslo, rather than in Stavanger and along the coast.

I share Kristjánsson skepticism to the new industries that will become "the new oil", as is still my suspicion is that the Rødts new ordførerkandidat in Stavanger has a slightly entrenched idea that the "real" value creation belong together a nostalgic picture of the old "industrial society". Also in Stavanger is the vast majority employed in the service sector.

I want no matter Mímir Kristjánsson good luck with the campaign!
