Growth Policies in a nordic perspective


The economies of the Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden – are both similar and strikingly different. This medium term survey is a joint analytic project between the Nordic research institutions – ETLA in Helsinki, IFF in Copenhagen, IØI in Bergen and IUI in Stockholm.

The survey evaluates the growth prospects of the Nordic market. Adjustment problems are discussed and forecasts up to 1990 are presented.

Included are special studies of: the development of the financial markets of the four Nordic countries; the labor markets; and the fast growing Nordic corporations. A comprehensive statistical appendix of the Nordic economies 1905-85 concludes this book.

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.
