Economics of the Welfare state

The overall purpose of this research program is to study the welfare state from an evolutionary point of view.


Project director: Assar Lindbeck


Analyses of the welfare state have mainly considered problems of a static nature. The overall purpose of this research program is to study the welfare state from an evolutionary point of view. How does the design of welfare systems influence the incentive structure, and thereby the behavior of economic agents? In addition, issues such as capital accumulation in the welfare state and the role of institutions in economic performance will be considered.

 

International cooperation

Visiting researchers

Collaborating with others is essential for IFN as a research institute. Our researchers co-author articles with colleagues from other institutes, and many also teach at various universities and colleges.

As part of our extensive program of guest researchers, leading international researchers visit the institute. The visitors present and pursue their research as well as interact and cooperate with researchers at IFN.
