    - ENVIRONMENTAL MODELLING & SOFTWARE - Year 2024

    The last half a century has seen spectacular progresses in computing and modelling in a variety of fields, applications, and methodologies. Over the same period, a cross-disciplinary field known as sensitivity analysis has been making its first steps, evolving from the design of experiments for laboratory or field studies, also called ‘in-vivo’, to the so-called experiments ‘in-silico’. Some disciplines were quick to realize the...

  • Free trade with the former COMECON Countries as Unequal Exchange
    Publication

    - Year 2023

    Two authors of this chapter were born to the East of what was once The Iron Curtain and two to the West. From both angles, the two systems – capitalism and communism – seemed to be as contrary to each other as possible. Few people are aware that in terms of industrial and trade policy, both classical capitalism and communism had a common root in the theories of German economist Friedrich List (1789-1846) (List, 1841). In fact,...

  • Impact assessment culture in the European Union. Time for something new?
    Publication

    - ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & POLICY - Year 2023

    Current approaches and cultures for the economic evaluations of environmental and health policies may suffer from excessive reliance on a standard neoclassic economic toolbox that neglects alternative perspectives. This may prematurely limit the spectrum of available policy options. Here we show how the inclusion of neglected currents of thought such as non-Ricardian economics, bioeconomics and a set of qualitative-quantitative...

  • Labour share and income inequalities in the European Union, taking into account the level of development of economies

    esearch background: The relationship between labour share and income inequality is a complex and multifaceted problem. Despite ongoing discussions among economists, there is still no consensus on the direction of the relationship between labour share and income ine-quality. Purpose of the article: The article aims to assess the impact of labour share on income inequal-ity, which is measured in three ways: the Gini index...

  • Mathematical modelling: Lessons from composite indicators
    Publication

    - Year 2023

    We discuss here composite indicators as mathematical models, which can be looked at through the lenses of the five rules discussed in this volume. Composite indicators sit between analysis and advocacy, and their use has social and political implications. For this reason, the lenses of the manifesto can be used to build them better, to make them more transparent, as well as to inspect incumbent indicators for methodological or...

  • Mind the framing: Match purpose and context
    Publication

    - Year 2023

    In several ways, the following chapters will allude to the concept of frames. The assumptions of a mathematical model tell us what it can explain and what it cannot (see chapter 5). The trade-off between the usefulness of a mathemati- cal model and the scale of complexity it seeks to capture further conditions the narrative, highlighting or downsizing cognitive elements relevant to responsible modelling (see ‘Mathematics and tales’...

  • SDGs implementation, their synergies, and trade-offs in EU countries – Sensitivity analysis-based approach
    Publication

    - ECOLOGICAL INDICATORS - Year 2023

    Sustainable development is one of the most urgent challenges facing humanity. Its basic principle is to improve people’s well-being and maintain it over time. In 2015, the United Nations approved 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to ensure a better and sustainable future for all, balancing economic, social and environmental development. SDGs create an ‘indivisible whole’; thus, examining their interactions is crucial. Our...

  • The Challenge of Quantification: An Interdisciplinary Reading
    Publication

    - Minerva - A Review of Science, Learning and Policy - Year 2023

    The present work looks at what we call “the multiverse of quantification”, where visible and invisible numbers permeate all aspects and venues of life. We review the contributions of different authors who focus on the roles of quantification in society, with the aim of capturing different and sometimes separate voices. Several scholars, including economists, jurists, philosophers, sociologists, communication and data scientists,...

  • The Employment of Ukrainians as an Opportunity to Fill the Labour Market in Poland – Selected Issues

    The labour market in Poland has undergone signifi cant transformations over the past two decades. The observed changes have been infl uenced by various factors related to, among other things, the possibility of free movement of the population resulting from membership of EU structures, demographic changes, technological changes, and the automation and robotisation of production processes. Demographic change is becoming a signifi...

  • COVID-19 and digital deprivation in Poland
    Publication

    Research background: The problem of digital deprivation is already known, but the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted its negative consequences. A global change in the way of life, work and socialisation resulting from the epidemic has indicated that a basic level of digital integration is becoming necessary. During the lockdown, people were forced to use ICTs to adapt to a rapidly changing reality. Current experience with coronavirus...

  • How ethics combine with big data: a bibliometric analysis

    The term Big Data is becoming increasingly widespread throughout the world, and its use is no longer limited to the IT industry, quantitative scientific research, and entrepreneurship, but entered as well everyday media and conversations. The prevalence of Big Data is simply a result of its usefulness in searching, downloading, collecting and processing massive datasets. It is therefore not surprising that the number of scientific...

  • Quantitative Storytelling in the Making of a Composite Indicator
    Publication

    - Social Indicators Research - Year 2020

    The reasons for and against composite indicators are briefly reviewed, as well as the available theories for their construction. After noting the strong normative dimension of these measures—which ultimately aim to ‘tell a story’, e.g. to promote the social discovery of a particular phenomenon, we inquire whether a less partisan use of a composite indicator can be proposed by allowing more latitude in the framing of its construction....

  • IS THE REGIONAL DIVERGENCE A PRICE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL CONVERGENCE? THE CASE OF THE VISEGRAD GROUP
    Publication

    The main goal of this article is to verify whether the Visegrad Group countries are achieving social convergence at national level at the expense of internal divergence. For this purpose, the existence of social beta-, sigma- and gamma-convergence at national and regional level was tested. The author of this article decided to tackle the convergence problem since there is a high risk that countries are trying to catch up at...

  • Poziom życia w regionach państw nordyckich z uwzględnieniem zależności przestrzennych

    Sąsiedztwo geograficzne oraz wspólne korzenie historyczne sprawiają, że państwa nordyckie, niesłusznie dość często traktowane są jako jedność. W rzeczywistości jednak, poszczególne regiony państw nordyckich są zróżnicowane pod względem szeroko rozumianego rozwoju społecznego i gospodarczego. Celem niniejszego opracowania jest analiza przestrzennego zróżnicowania poziomu życia ludności w regionach NUTS-3 państw nordyckich. Jako...

  • Social convergence in Nordic countries at regional level

    Research background: Geographical proximity, common historical roots and collaboration within the Nordic Council cause the Nordic countries to be often wrongly treated as monoliths. However, in reality, Nordic regions differ in terms of broadly defined social and economic development. Issues concerning the standard of living are one of the priorities of the Helsinki Treaty signed by Nordic countries. Purpose of the article: The...

  • The Taxonomy Spatial Measure of Development in the Standard of Living Analysis

    Incorporation of spatial relationships in the construction of taxonomy measure of development is gaining popularity in Polish literature. However, there is no one common idea concerning how the spatial relationship should be taken into account when creating a synthetic variable nor, indeed, where the spatial weight matrix should be placed. It seems that the inclusion of spatial relationships is more important in smaller regions’...

  • Konwergencja społeczna i ekonomiczna regionów państw nordyckich

    Celem niniejszego artykułu jest analiza konwergencji społecznej i ekonomicznej w regionach państw nordyckich. Do analizy obu typów konwergencji wykorzystano przestrzenne modele panelowe. Analiza statystyki I Morana wskazała na zasadność uwzględniania komponentu przestrzennego w modelach dotyczących zarówno wielkości PKB per capita, jak i syntetycznego miernika poziomu życia ludności. Nie udało się oszacować modelu o odpowiedniej...
