    New annual estimates of Swedish GDP, 1800-20102013Ingår i: Economic history review, ISSN 0013-0117, E-ISSN 1468-0289, Vol. 66, nr 4, s. 1101-1126Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the historical national accounts of Sweden are among the most detailed in the world, there is scope for improvement. This study revises previous historical estimates of Swedish GDP. Agricultural output is upgraded for the nineteenth century following recent research by Swedish agrarian historians on the underestimation of official statistics. Estimates of annual fluctuations before 1861 are significantly improved by using new sources on yield ratios of harvests. For manufacturing, home industries are added, in accordance with modern international guidelines (2008 SNA). The study concludes that early nineteenth-century Sweden was not as poor relative to other West European countries as previously thought.

    Shadow interest rates in Stockholm and the integration of early financial markets, 1660-1685: was Heckscher right?2011Ingår i: Financial History Review, ISSN 0968-5650, E-ISSN 1474-0052, Vol. 18, nr 3, s. 309-329Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The decline of interest rates during the early modern period is considered an important factor in the subsequent rise of capitalist society. This article uses unique empirical material based on bills of exchange in Stockholm between 1660 and 1685 to estimate underlying ‘shadow interest rates’. It shows that annual rates ‘according’ to Stockholm were very high, mostly above 10 per cent, an indication of underdeveloped financial integration between Stockholm and the main European centres. There are also indications of a decline in these rates during the period studied, reflecting improved efficiency in Swedish financial markets.

    Swedish harvests 1665-1820: Early modern growth in the periphery of European economy2009Ingår i: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, nr 1, s. 2-25Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, one of the greatest challenges facing macroeconomic history is to quantify economic growth in theearly modernperiod.Thisarticlepresentsand discusses a series of total and per capita harvest production in Sweden within present borders for the period 16651820. The series is based on three main indices: grain prices, subjective harvest assessments and tithes. Various sources of harvests are more reliable as indicators of relative changes than of absolute levels. For example, tithes probably only taxed between 15 and 60 per cent of the actual harvests, but seem to capture annual harvest fluctuations reasonably well. To estimate the absolute level ofpercapita harvests,the index of the per capitaharvestproduction is linked to data for the early nineteenth century, which are more reliable. The article argues that harvests stagnated during the studied period, which is in line with several other studies for various European countries. The annual fluctuations were substantial.

    Testing the demand approach to reconstruct pre-industrial agricultural output2016Ingår i: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 64, nr 3, s. 202-218Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A common method to reconstruct historical national accounts is the demand approach, which calculates agricultural consumption from the development of wages and prices of agricultural and non-agricultural products assuming constant income, own price and cross price elasticities of demand. This study uses agricultural data for Sweden 1802–1950, which is more reliable than for other countries, to put the approach to test. Time series analysis shows that the demand approach could be modelled as a cointegrating relationship between per capita demand and the deflated wage. Income elasticity is estimated to +0.4. Using the estimated parameters to extrapolate Swedish agricultural consumption back to the Middle Ages accords quite well with other indicators. However, out-of-sampling shows that the 90% confidence interval is as large as ±0.15–0.25 natural logarithms.

    The international political economy of early modern copper mercantilism: rent seeking and copper money in Sweden 1624 17762012Ingår i: Explorations in economic history, ISSN 0014-4983, E-ISSN 1090-2457, Vol. 49, nr 3, s. 303-315Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1624-1776 Sweden minted intrinsic value copper coins, alongside silver coins. One purpose behind introducing the copper standard was to use its monopoly position at the European markets to manipulate the international copper prices, implementing a kind of copper mercantilism. This paper presents a model of an early modern copper monopolist that could price discriminate between two different uses for copper: copper for export and copper for minting. The paper concludes that authorities did not completely conform to this rent-seeking model, since there were also other considerations behind minting policy, such as providing a stable monetary system. The model shows that under profit-maximisation minting should have been even higher and the price of copper money lower, but at periods minting and prices approached the optimal state. In the 17th century, the market for copper money was probably too small relative the huge copper production, but by the 17205 and 1730s, when copper production had declined, the copper standard functioned more smoothly.

    Swedish GDP 1620-1800: stagnation or Growth?2013Ingår i: Cliometrica, ISSN 1863-2505, E-ISSN 1863-2513, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 37-60Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reconstructs an annual volume series of GDP and GDP per capita for Sweden within present borders 1620-1800, extending the annual series that exist from 1800 onwards. Annual fluctuations of GDP are estimated from the annual fluctuations of harvests, which in the nineteenth century were strongly correlated with each other. Long-term trends are determined based on estimates of the values added of various activities for a few benchmark years. The paper shows that the long-term trend of GDP per capita increased modestly during the studied period, a different development from real wages that fell substantially. Henceforth, available data on real wages are at best a quite weak indicator of the development of GDP per capita. If Sweden is representative of Western Europe, the new data indicate a somewhat slower growth than assumed by Maddison. The increase in GDP per capita occurred in the seventeenth century and came entirely from non-agricultural activities, especially mining, public services, trade and transports. The lack of dynamism in the aggregate economy is explained by the dominance of agriculture. Per capita agricultural production displayed a stagnating tendency. Nevertheless, the expansion of the population in the eighteenth century was largely made possible by the increased use of iron tools in agriculture. Without technological progress, the strong population growth would probably have led to decreased per capita production.

    Recalculating Swedish pre-census demographic data: was there acceleration in early modern population growth?2015Ingår i: Cliometrica, ISSN 1863-2505, E-ISSN 1863-2513, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 167-191Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The world population growth increased in the eighteenth century, which caused real wages to decline in most countries. Eli Heckscher held the view that Swedish population growth was quite low in the seventeenth century, similar to the development in the rest of Europe, and that there was a substantial acceleration after 1720. Recent data for Sweden by Lennart Andersson Palm entail that population growth was stronger in the seventeenth century than in the eighteenth century. However, this is at variance with other types of economic data. For example, Swedish real wages increased during the seventeenth century and fell in the eighteenth century. This study attempts to resolve the anomaly and argues that Palm's estimates of Swedish population and mortality rates are too low for the seventeenth century. It presents revised annual demographic data for Sweden for the pre-census period, back to 1630. The new data indicate that there was a small acceleration in early modern population growth, due to the decreased occurrence of mortality crises, but the acceleration was not as pronounced as in the rest of the world.

    The response of vital rates to harvest fluctuations in pre-industrial Sweden2017Ingår i: Cliometrica, ISSN 1863-2505, E-ISSN 1863-2513, Vol. 11, nr 2, s. 245-268Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines whether there was a Malthusian equilibrium mechanism in Sweden in the pre-industrial period. A unique data set on harvests, deaths, marriages and births going back to 1630 is used to calculate cumulative elasticities of vital rates with respect to harvest. While earlier studies have mostly focused on the impact of real wage, this study uses the calorie content of per capita harvests as an indicator of living standards. It finds that there indeed was a response of vital rates to harvest fluctuations, but there were important structural breaks. While positive checks attenuated after 1720, preventive checks were strengthened. After 1870 preventive checks disappeared, and possibly also positive checks. The results are robust to different models and trend specifications, with one crucial difference: while the distributed lag model shows that positive checks were significant up to 1920, the SVAR model shows that positive checks disappeared after 1870.

    Sveriges tidiga formella penningväsende2015Ingår i: Historisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0345-469X, E-ISSN 2002-4827, Vol. 135, nr 3, s. 377-400Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats analyserar framväxten av ett formellt penningväsende i Sverige 995–1525. Ett av de tidigaste tecknen på monetarisering inträffade under andra halvan av 1200-talet och innebar att betalningar i bevarade källor huvudsakligen anges i mynt som räknats i stället för att vägas. Skillnaden mellan ett mynts nominella värde och dess värde som silver utgjordes av slagskatt. Myntförsämringen under 1300- och 1400-talen motverkades av att silvrets köpkraft ökade kraftigt.

    Explaining the Swedish ‘housewife era’ of 1930–1970: joint utility maximisation or renewed patriarchy?2017Ingår i: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 65, nr 2, s. 169-188Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study shows that the Swedish ‘housewife era’ roughly occurred in 1930–1970. During the 1950s, the ratio of women’s worked hours to men’s worked hours reached a low point. In the early 1970s, it rose to above 50%. We argue that models of joint utility maximisation, assuming equal gender power relations unrestrained by cultural and institutional settings, cannot alone explain this era. The two principal structural mechanisms behind the rise of the breadwinner household were the decline of the farm household and the increased proportion of married women. Both weakened the bargaining position of women. Three results in our study weaken the claims of the joint utility maximisation model. Firstly, marriage was much more important than motherhood in determining the probability of women’s labour force participation, although the age of the child is then not taken into account. Secondly, the labour force participation of married women was similar across different social strata outside of the farm and top income households, indicating a prevalent capitalist patriarchal structure. Thirdly, women’s leisure was valued less than men’s, demonstrating that the preferences of the husband were prioritised over those of the wife.

    New estimates of time use in Sweden 1950–20122017Ingår i: Journal of European Economic History, ISSN 0391-5115, E-ISSN 2499-8281, Vol. XLVI, nr 2, s. 77-113Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The official statistics on GDP and the labour market exclude unpaid domestic services. Yet there are good theoretical reasons why historians should study unpaid work. This paper reconstructs annual estimates of time use in Sweden from 1950 to 2012 among women and men. It finds substantial convergence between the genders in time use from the 1960s to the early 1980s. During the pe-riod of inquiry, the gender difference in total working time vanished. The double burden for women did not increase when they entered the labour market. The reduction in the time women spent on unpaid work is explained about equally by the shortening of the total amount of unpaid work and by increasing male participation inhousehold chores. In 1950-1963, the reduction was explained mainly by the decline in the making and mending of clothes at home and the spread of domestic appliances. In the 1963–1984 period, instead, it was due chiefly to men’s greater participation in household work. These mechanisms were largely historically contingent, suggesting that it is impossible to single out just one factor to explain why Sweden today has less gender inequality than other countries.

    A Consumer Price Index for Sweden, 1290–20082011Ingår i: The Review of Income and Wealth, ISSN 0034-6586, E-ISSN 1475-4991, Vol. 57, nr 2, s. 270-292Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a Consumer Price Index for Sweden 1290–2008. Constructing an index that covers more than seven centuries poses conceptual and empirical problems, and demands some methodological innovations. For example, during numerous occasions the currency unit was changed, and in some periods multiple currencies were used at floating exchange rates relative to each other. This paper also presents two different price indices, one that mainly serves the purposes of estimating real prices and real wages, and another that provides a measure of inflation. While the former follows the main currency unit, the latter also takes into account that debased coins were devalued during recoinage.

    A Consumer Price Index for Sweden 1291-20062007Konferensbidrag (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to describe the construction of a Consumer Price Index for Sweden 1290-2006. The focus is not to present any new empirical material, but rather to use the very rich empirical material collected in earlier studies on the price history of Sweden to construct a price index that as far as possible use a consistent method through time. This paper also discusses some theoretical and conceptual problems in relation to constructing a historical consumer price index.

    Prices and the growth of the knowledge economy in Sweden and Western Europe before the industrial revolution2011Ingår i: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 59, nr 3, s. 250-272Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article uses long-term series of real prices for various goods and services to analyse the evolution of the knowledge economy before the Industrial Revolution by focusing on Sweden in comparison with other European countries. During the early modern period, the relative price of knowledge-intensive goods and services, such as iron, paper, salt, sea transports and silver, decreased relative to a Consumer Price Index. The increased productivity levels of these goods and services were caused by increased division of labour and accelerated diffusion of knowledge. However, the real price of foodstuff tended to increase, implying that living standards declined with increased population. Early modern Western Europe acquired a peculiar price structure, characterized by low prices of industrial goods relative to the price of food. Only with the advent of industrial society could the knowledge economy escape the Malthusian entrapment.

    The Role of Education and Political Participation For Women’s Rights in Ethiopia2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns women's rights in Ethiopia, and focuses on how education and political participation can work as an instrument to increase women's rights. It is an interesting subject since the level of education in Ethiopia is very low, and the country has a very patriarchal culture with heavily measured norms where women are considered inferior to men. Research on women's education in Africa has been performed before but not with the women's rights angle and not in Ethiopia. Political participation is also interesting since this can make an impact on women's rights and this subject has been researched on in Ethiopia earlier as well, not with human rights as a focus though.

    The method I have used is a qualitative analysis which investigates books, reports and articles as well as some statistics which I have used as tools to highlight certain factors that I believed were important and interesting for the study.

    The theories I have used are primarily the liberal feminist and radical feminist theories which have helped me to strengthen the answers to my hypothesis. Furthermore, Douglass North's reflections on formal and informal institutions have also been interesting, especially regarding cultural norms and values and legislative law.

    According to my research the results show that education in Ethiopia can prevent girls from being married off at an early age, which increases their chances to personal empowerment as well as gives them greater possibility to eliminate the stereotypical identity of girls being shy and silent. Education can also inform girls about their rights and this knowledge can be spread and encourage girls and women to demand their rights. The possibility to proceed and obtain a career also increases with education, and political participation is an extension of this. As education and political participation go hand in hand, when entering politics in Ethiopia the probability to get involved in women's rights is greater. The best chance to improve women's rights seems though to get involved in the leadership of an NGO or a CBO where the best opportunities of making a difference are. Women's rights organizations defend and affirm the rights of women and they have the possibility to spread the norm of international human rights for women, and increase the implementation of these norms in different nations.

    Brussels: a reflexive world city2001Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation analyses the consequences of seemingly placeless processes like the European integration and the increasing economic globalisation on Brussels and the people living there. The study shows that Brussels has become one of our time's most important international political capitals and a leading business node in Europe. European institutions, international organisations, headquarters and subsidiaries of transnational corporations are increasingly locating themselves in Brussels. Simultaneously there has been an influx of transnational professionals working in the international sector.

    This research shows that with the internationalisation of Brussels there has been concomitant economic restructuring with the emergence of an advanced service economy. The labour market has become polarised between those who have jobs and those who do not. Brussels has also experienced a spatial and socio-economic polarisation along ethnic lines. The thesis explores the connections between these changes and Brussels' international role.

    Drawing on the world / global city thesis of Saskia Sassen and John Friedmann, a theoretical framework is developed to analyse this. One of the important results of this study is that the world / global city thesis needs to be complemented with a thorough analysis of the place: the political and historical context, and also the role of the local agents, to enable an explanation of the observed development. The interplay between global and local processes needs to be clarified. It is also argued that to properly understand cities with an international role like Brussels, we need to know why international agents locate there. Michael Storper's concepts of 'economic reflexivity' and 'territorial specificities' are used to analyse the rise of Brussels into a reflexive world city - a city vibrating with specific knowledge, produced through inter alia social interaction and critical reflection, that some transnational agents find extremely vital to tap into.

    Failed Integration, Alienation and the Rise of Homegrown Violent Islamist Extremism in Sweden: An institutional framework for analyzing Sweden’s terrorism prevention policy and practice2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, I try to analyze how Sweden prevents violent Islamist

    extremism. First, by using alienation and network theories I explain how

    various socio-economic factors create an alienating environment in which

    individuals who have inappropriate social network can move towards violent

    Islamist extremism. Second, by analyzing the policy and practice of

    preventive work with a focus on activities of the National Coordinator

    Against Violent Extremism I try to identify achievements and shortcomings

    in this area, and eventually suggest how preventive work in Sweden can be

    improved.
