    Collapse of a Bourgeoisie? The Wealthy in Stockholm, 1915-19652009In: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 57, no 1, p. 88-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the decline of the propertied bourgeoisie in Sweden in the twentieth century by analyzing data from the Stockholm Directory of Wealth reporting on private wealth in the years 1914, 1928 and 1963. Wealth tax statistics are used as complementary sources. How did the overall level of wealth change among the affluent Stockholmers during this period? Who were the wealthiest people in Stockholm and how did the social stratification withinthe richest change over time? The main results are: first, strongly declining overall mean wealth (-58 per cent) among the richest with a dramatic drop already before 1945 (thus before the expansion of the welfare state); and, second, surprisingly stable social positions among the wealthiest between 1914 and 1963, despite radical changes in society and a dramatic decline in mean wealth.

    Abstract [sv]

    Class, human worth and money

    This article discusses class, economy and culture in a rather down-to-earth way. Empirically the study focuses on debates on household budgets and the growing anxieties of economical decline among the Swedish middle classes during the first half of the twentieth century. Class is conventionally defined by socio-economical or/and cultural criteria. The point of this paper is to analyse source material about the economical situation of (self-defined) middle class groups from a cultural perspective. Theoretically I address the question how people try to make the seemingly contradictory economic value and ideal values commeasurable in everyday practice. In other words I show by three historical examples how writings about financial issues can shed light on cultural and moral boundaries between classes and how the ambiguous concept of value/values can be used as an analytical tool in the study of class.

    My examples are from 1.) a book published 1907 discussing the ”wage regulation” in the household (Hemmens lönereglering by Elna Tenow). 2.) pieces of financial advice to private persons offered by the home economics experts of the Taxpayers’ Organisation from the 1920ies to the 1940ies and 3.) an extensive newspaper debate in1950 called ”Justice to the Middle Class”.
