Salaried Employees and the Industrial Transformation


The increase in the number of salaried employees and their status in relation to other social groups are questions which have attracted considerable interest during recent years. This interest has certainly not been expressed only by the labor market organizations themselves: the political parties have paid increasing attention to the problems of salaried employees, and in public debate as well as in industry journals and the trades union press these problems have more and more become the centre of interest. It seemed natural to The Industrial Institute for Economic and Social Research (Industriens Utredningsinstitut, IUI) and to The League for Social and Economic Studies (Studieförbundet Näringsliv och Samhälle, SNS) to assist in the procurement of data that might throw some light upon the emergence and significance of this situation.

Sick of Inequality.jpg

In this book Andreas Bergh, Therese Nilsson, IFN and Lund University, and Daniel Waldenström, IFN and Paris School of Economics, France, review the latest research on the relationship between inequality and health. What does inequality mean for our health? Does increasing income inequality affect outcomes such as obesity, life expectancy and subjective well-being?


Seminars organized by IFN


To present ongoing research informal brown-bag seminars are held on Mondays at 11:30 am. This is an opportunity for IFN researchers to test ideas and results.

Academically oriented seminars are most of the time held on Wednesdays at 10 am. At these events researchers from IFN and other institutions present their research.
