    Denmark and Sweden in the European Great Power System, 1720-17652012In: Revue d'histoire nordique, ISSN 1778-9605, Vol. 14, p. 39-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares the strategies the two Scandinavian states adopted in the European state system during the period 1720–65. Previous research has emphasized the difference in policies: Denmark sought neutrality and avoided war, while Sweden was involved in two wars. Inability of the Swedish political elite to adapt to a new position in the international state system has been presented as one major reason for the Swedish participation in wars. This article argues instead that the difference should be seen as a consequence of the assets the two states could offer the major powers. The Danish state’s resources were highly sought after, which meant that the government could gain advantages such as subsidies and territory without fighting wars, while the Swedish state had less to offer the major powers and was thus forced to commit to one major power and war in order to try and gain the same types of benefits as the Danish state.

    Abstract [en]

    Thisarticle explores developments of secrecy and transparency in relation to fiscalaffairs in Sweden from around 1750 to 1780. During the 1750s the governmentmostly relied on subsidies and loans from the Bank of Sweden to financedeficits and major projects. This system supported the ruling oligarchy and thesecrecy that surrounded its financial operations. The system was changedfollowing the Seven Years’ War when the subsidies stopped arriving and thefalling value of the Swedish currency forced limitations on the issuance ofbank liquidity. Instead external borrowing in Amsterdam and Genoa and internalborrowing through the use of lotteries and bonds expanded. This change wenthand in hand with increasing openness concerning fiscal affairs and morecritical public discussions about the use of resources and how the economicproblems should be tackled. However, no permanent resolutions to the existingdeficits could be presented. This inability to find compromises led to theroyal coup in 1772, which in turn resulted in a strengthening of royal powerand a stop to the open discussions about key fiscal affairs. The period endedwith a return to greater economic stability, but it also entailed a return tothe secrecy of the 1740s and 1750s.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the dynamic relationship between war finance and economic and political developments in Scandinavia during the period 1800–1830. By comparing the organization of government debt in Denmark-Norway and Sweden, it is shown that the Danish system relied on revenues from trade and consumption, while the Swedish system was heavily influenced by internal political factors such as a divided fiscal authority. The leadership in Copenhagen was committed to maintaining existing relationships with creditors even when faced with severe fiscal constraints, while the Swedish government chose partial defaults as the politically expedient option when faced with fiscal difficulties.

    Servants of Credit: the Clerical Staff at the National Debt Office in Sweden, 1790–18202016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1789 the National Debt Office was established in Sweden. Its main role was to administer the government’s debt by selling long-term bonds on the domestic credit market, by issuing promissory notes in the Swedish realm and by negotiating external loans on the leading financial markets in Europe. The Debt Office was governed by a number of directors, who were appointed by the Swedish Diet. In order for the directors to implement the debt policies that were decided by the Diet, the directors were dependent on a staff of accountants, book keepers and secretaries that handled the daily transactions. Previous research on the Debt Office has primarily focused on the debates in the Diet regarding the Swedish government’s debt policies and the decisions taken by the directors. Scholars have also examined the financial standing of the Debt Office. However, very little attention has been given to the clerical staff that carried out the policies. In my paper I will concentrate on the activities of the accountants and the book keepers. I will examine their background and their position in the Debt Office and on the local credit market. Additionally, I will analyze how conflicts concerning salaries and promotions were handled within the organization. By examining these issues we will not only gain a better understanding of the operations of the Debt Office and the credit market in Stockholm, but also how clerical work was organized in a European state at the end of the eighteenth century.

    Abstract [en]

    Sweden commenced military operations against Prussia in 1757, following Austria's and France's efforts to include Sweden in the anti-Prussian alliance. Swedish politicians hoped that the coalition would lead to a quick victory without having to get too involved in the fighting, but that Sweden still would be rewarded for its support. Swedish military action was thus primarily designed to show the allies that Sweden participated in the war. Despite the low intensity warfare that characterized the fighting, the war was still extremely expensive. The Swedish state used mostly internal borrowing to finance the war, which led to negative economic and political consequences such as inflation and popular discontent. By participating in the war, the Swedish state sought to strengthen its commercial situation worldwide while preserving its military position in the Baltic region.

    The Globalizing Swedish State: Loans, Exchange Rates and International Merchant Networks Around 17702017In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 83, no 2, p. 65-99Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the external borrowing of the Swedish state in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Genoa during the 1760s and early 1770s. By using a global history perspective, with a focus on links between actors and how these links influence these actors rather than comparing developments within or between states, it is possible to get a new understanding of how the relationships between the Swedish state and the leading international capital markets were established. Additionally, the consequences of receiving the borrowed funds with regard to the Swedish state are also analyzed. The analysis shows that the financial problems following Sweden's participation in the Seven Years' War created incentives for members of the Swedish political elite to find new ways of funding existing deficits and debts, as well as stabilizing the currency. External borrowing was seen by many as a key fiscal tool for addressing these financial challenges. At the same time, there were investors in the Dutch Republic and Genoa interested in finding new investment opportunities that could give a higher return. Through intermediaries, such as Swedish diplomats, negotiations were initiated between bankers in Amsterdam/Genoa and representatives of the Swedish state concerning borrowing funds. One of the key issues during these negotiations concerned how the Swedish state should portray itself as a reliable debtor. Several actors were interested in providing credits to the Swedish state. One such actor was the merchant Henning Frederik Bargum in Copenhagen, who was the director of the Danish Guinean Company-a company involved in the slave trade. By expanding his business to the Swedish state, Bargum hoped to create new opportunities, as well as to strengthen his position among leading merchants in Copenhagen. The analysis shows that the negotiated loans were primarily used to liquidate debts accrued in Swedish Pomerania during the war and to stabilize the Swedish currency in the international capital markets. The success of the loan negotiations created a new fiscal practice for the Swedish state. This practice of external borrowing had consequences for the formation of the Swedish state, since it required the state to clarify its resources and create organizations able to handle the daily interactions with the international credit markets. These practices also meant that the Swedish state participated in the process of financial globalization during the eighteenth century.

    The political economy of strategic default: Sweden and the international capital markets, 1810-18302016In: European Review of Economic History, ISSN 1361-4916, E-ISSN 1474-0044, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 410-428Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the commitment mechanisms which guided sovereign borrowing during the Napoleonic Wars by analyzing Sweden’s default on its external debt in 1812. The default was driven by internal political bargaining concerning the division of resources, and the availability of subsidies provided by the major European powers. Thus, the Swedish government and the Diet made strategic choices when deciding which debts to pay. The reputational mechanisms and the creditors’ attempts to force the Swedish state to honor its commitments did not work when the government had access to foreign subsidies.

    The political economy of Swedish absolutism, 1789-18092012In: European Review of Economic History, ISSN 1361-4916, E-ISSN 1474-0044, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 430-448Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the connections between struggles over fiscal institutions and political change in Sweden during the period 17891809. The political situation was characterized by a divided fiscal authority: the absolute king controlled how resources were spent while the Diet controlled the operations of the Bank of Sweden and the National Debt Office. This division affected fiscal policies and how the country financed its wars. During the Napoleonic Wars, the king was unwilling to negotiate a deal with the Diet that relinquished his spending control in exchange for greater revenues to fight the war. As a consequence, he was unable to mobilize the necessary resources, which led to the loss of Finland and to his dethronement through a coup dtat organized by the elite in 1809.

    Abstract [en]

    During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries thousands of charitable foundations existed in Sweden which focused on helping the poor, the sick and the elderly. Although they were often administered by public officials such as clergymen, the foundations were frequently based on donations from wealthy individuals. The donated money had to be invested in order to create dividends that could be handed to the needy. Many of the foundations chose to purchase government bonds. Consequently, financial ties were created between the foundations and the National debt office which issued the bonds and administered the realm's government debt. These ties are analyzed in the article. What economic and social meaning did they have for the foundations and for the debt office? The period i800-1810 is chosen because of the pressures that the political regime had to contend with: the Napoleonic Wars required the mobilization of more resources at the same time as the role of the monarchy was questioned by an increasingly dissatisfied elite. The analysis shows that many foundations in and around Stockholm as well as along the coast of the Baltic Sea purchased government bonds. The bonds played a significant role in the investment portfolios of the foundations and thus the received interest payments were used to pay support for poor, sick and elderly individuals. The officials who administered the foundations argued that government bonds were the most trustworthy assets that were available on the credit market. Although the foundations constituted a relatively small group of creditors in the perspective of the debt office, they provided stability since they tended to hold on to their bonds. The foundations also provided valuable specie assets at a time when the debt office had to contend with the negative effects of the promissory notes that the debt office issued. In 1804, the debt office stopped further sales of bonds in order to cope with an increase in liquidity. This decision resulted in a weakening of the ties between the foundations and the debt office. Many foundations were forced to find other ways to invest their resources and they did not return when the bond sales restarted in 1808. The reduction in the size of the bond market had long-term consequences for the state's ability to mobilize resources within the country.

    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, the Swedish state’s war efforts in 1741–1743 are compared with Sweden’s participation during the Seven Years’ War (1757–1762). More specifically, it examines the political discussions before the wars, but also the actions of the procurement commissions set up to oversee the mobilization of resources before and during the wars. Moreover, the chapter explores how the members of the Diet assessed the actions of leading officers, as well as the activities of the political leadership and key administrators during and after the military campaigns. A key question in the analysis is how members of the procurement commissions and the politicians, who scrutinized the actions of the military and political leadership, handled issues of accountability. By examining these issues we gain a better understanding of how discourses about the relationships between private and public interests affected how resources were mobilized in a European middle ranking power.

    A Crisis Misunderstood: The Political Economy of the Government Debt Market in Sweden, 1715-17202018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    From 1715 to 1718 there was an unparalleled expansion of liquidity in Sweden. Behind the new financial system stood the absolute king Charles XII, who needed resources to continue Swedish participation in the Great Northern War (1700–21). Heading the administration of the system was Baron Georg Heinrich von Görtz from the Duchy of Holstein. The French experiments with paper money as well as John Law’s monetary ideas were clear inspirations for Görtz, and he actually met the Scot in Paris in 1716. The Swedish financial system entailed the issuing of bonds and salary notes, but above all token coins and bills. The great volume of coins reached all parts of the country and all social classes, and the coins largely retained their value. They were, however, fundamentally associated with Charles XII and with the death of the king in late 1718, confidence in the coins and bills were lost. The new parliamentary regime decided to dismantle the system and to commit a partial default. All holders of the token money had to exchange them for so-called insurance bills that circulated on a secondary market. This development has been unknown to international research and in Swedish historiography it has been interpreted as a last attempt of an autocratic regime, depleted of resources, to continue a futile war. This paper will explore the political economy of the market for government debt that emerged as a result of the process, and demonstrate that both the expansion and the retraction of liquidity were results of rational political decisions along the lines of the policies of the major European powers.
