Economic Growth in a Nordic Perspective


This medium-term survey of the Nordic economies meets a long felt demand. It is a result of a joint effort by five Nordic research institutions; ETLA in Helsinki, IFF and the Secretariat of the Economic Council in Copenhagen, IÖI in Bergen, and IUI in Stockholm. The adjustment problems of the Nordic economies are analyzed and forecasts up to 1987 are presented. The survey includes special studies on Norway's offshore market and the Nordic engineering industries, the largest manufacturing companies, industrial subsidies, productivity comparisons, effective exchange rates, the export performance of the Nordic economies and intra-Nordic trade. The book also contains a comprehensive statistical appendix covering the Nordic economies 1950-82.

The European Union and the Return of the Nation State


This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
