    Open for Welfare: Openness to Trade and Social Spending in the West, 1920–19902017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Openness to trade promotes economic growth and reduces poverty. In terms of its impact on welfare policies it has been said on the hand to reduced social spending, and on the other hand it has been argued that small open economies in Europe have opted for redistributive economic policies. In this paper we aim to test the hypothesis of whether economic openness has actually led to increased social spending. We do this with a sample of 20 countries from Europe, North America, and Oceania between 1920 and 1990. It was during this time when social spending increased dramatically and openness rapidly rose following its collapse during WWII. We divide the countries into small and large economies, in order to test Peter Katzenstein’s hypothesis, but we also suggest that important differences can be found between regions/political economies. We find that countries in Southern Europe were both less open during this period and also had a lower degree of social spending compared to Northern and Western Europe. However, we find little statistically significant evidence that openness had a major positive impact on social spending. Rather, it seems that openness was strongly correlated with economic growth, which itself seems to be a better predictor of social spending.

    The development of Swedish commercial banking, from establishment to consolidation: A presentation of a new database, 1866-19382019Report (Other academic)
    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.
