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).

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.
