The course covers a wide range of topics such as the labour market, the industrial structure, international trade and economic growth in Sweden.

Course Contents

The course starts with the industrialization process in Sweden in the late 19th century, discussing economic growth from a theoretical as well as from an empirical perspective. The historical background also helps explaining the industrial structure of Sweden. Later on in the course other aspects of the industry, such as geographical distribution, ownership structure and international trade will also be covered. The course covers some macro perspectives of the economy, andissues such as stagflation, devaluations but also the poor growth records of the 1970s and 1980s are discussed.
