Abstract [en]

This paper presents the long-run development of Swedish commercialbanking. It does so through data newly compiled into a database onaggregate and bank-level between 1866 and 1938. The database containsvariables such as lending, deposits, capital, expenses, holding of bondsand stocks, loan losses, profits, and dividends. The data is used to studysuch issues as market concentration, profitability, andefficiency/productivity. The paper shows that markets for lending anddeposits skyrocketed from 1880, which made commercial banks theleading financial institution in Sweden. The commercial banks then lostpart of their dominant position from about 1918, as the banks sufferedlarge losses and many reconstructions during the crises of 1921 and1932. The second half of the period saw a sharp increase in marketconcentration, with larger banks acquiring many small- and mediumsized competitors. We conclude that Swedish commercial banking duringthe period was essentially one of two distinct halves, with the first beingcompetitive and expansionary and the second distinguished byconcentration and contraction.

Abstract [sv]

MEDIEMARKNADEN har genomgått en genom-gripande omvandling under de senaste decennierna. Teknologisk utveckling har öppnat för nya medieformer och distributions-system och bidragit till mediemarknadens globalisering. I denna bok analyseras hur Stockholms roll som mediecentrum påverkats av denna utveckling och hur företag i Stockholmsregionen kunnat utveckla sina positioner bland annat genom internationella kontaktnät.
