Honourable Prime Minister : Letters to the Prime Minister regarding economic policy (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vilka ekonomiska frågor ligger närmast de svenska brevskrivarnas hjärtan? Två svenska professorer, Becker och Jonung undersökte detta 1998. Denna studie undersöker i ett världsunikt data set innehållande 536 brev adresserade till statsminister Fredrik Reinfeldt under hans mandatperiod 2006-2014. Genom undersökningen ges en övergripande bild av brevskrivarnas mest centrala frågor rörande ekonomi. Utgångspunkten ligger i att undersöka skillnader i fördelningen av brev mellan denna och tidigare studie. Med hypotestest påvisas skillnader och där dess eventuella bakomliggande faktorer undersöks vidare. Detta görs genom en granskning av media och arbetslöshetens påverkan på brevskrivarna. Svaren blev tvetydliga, media har visserligen en påverkan, men i princip negligerbar. För arbetslösheten återfanns inget samband. Detta kopplas samman med den bedömning författarna gjorde angående att de flesta av brevskrivarna är pensionärer.

Abstract [en]

What economic issues are closest to the Swedish correspondents´ hearts? In 1998 two Swedish professors, Becker and Jonung, examined what these issues could conceivably be. This study examines a unique data set consisting of 536 letters addressed to the Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt during his length in office, 2006-2014. By doing so, a general view of correspondents´ most central economic issues appears. The aim of this study is to compare these two, to see if changes in correspondents´ opinions has emerged. Differences between the studies have been shown through hypothesis testing, and it´s underlying factors are examined further. This is done through an examination of media and employment. Results indicate that media has a slightly positive effect on correspondents´ opinions, something that could not be concluded by the rate of unemployment due to the fact that most incoming letters probably are written by senior citizens.
