Abstract

In the winter of 1968, Sten Thore, who was then a professor of economics at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (abbreviated NHH in Norwegian), where I was finishing my three undergraduate years, made me an offer that would change dramatically the path I was to take for the rest of my life. I had gone to the business school with the expectation that I would eventually become a business manager. But when Sten asked if I would like to be his research assistant (vitenskapelig assistent), I agreed without thinking about what would turn out to be one of the most crucial decisions of my life.
