The Production System of the Swedish Economy


This book is an account of a study of the way in which the Swedish economy functions in its production of goods and services. The producing part of the economy-the production system-has been represented by a production model. One main part of the study has consisted in the construction of this model, including the estimation of numerical values of its constants. Another main part has been the application of the model to special situations, with the purpose of describing and analyzing the properties of the production system it refers to.

The book contains a complete account of the study; however, the data and the procedures used in estimating the constants of the model and other relevant magnitudes are described only summarily. A full account of the source material and of the ways in which it has been used is given in a supplementary mimeographed volume. This is in Swedish and has the title Input-output-tabeller för Sverige år 1957 (Input-Output Tables for Sweden 1957).

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.

In addition, IFN organizes seminars open to the public. Topics for these are derived from the IFN research.
