Malin Gardberg


Some of the questions Malin tries to answer in her research:

  • How has the digitization-based automation affected the Swedish labor market?
  • How do different types of net foreign assets, such as portfolio debt and equity assets, affect the country’s exchange rate?
  • Can the observation that developing countries share less consumption risks internationally be explained by lower financial integration and financial inclusion?
  • How has financial integration affected the consumption-to-wealth relationship?
