Abstract [en]

As part of a crisis package aimed at bridging severe financial difficulties facing Swedish industry in late 2008, the Swedish Export Credits Board introduced a temporary working capital guarantee program. In this thesis, we offer theoretical and empirical evidence to show why traditional export credit guarantees could not ease the liquidity constraints facing exporters in 2009. Increases in risks typical to international trade were likely not the main driver of the sharp decline in Swedish exports during the financial crisis. We also analyze potential costs and benefits of this temporary program.
