    The determinants of reinsurance in the Swedish property fire insurance market during the interwar years, 1919–392010In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 52, no 2, 268-284 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing a framework from agency theory, we use a panel data design to examine the factors motivating the level of demand for reinsurance in the rapidly developing Swedish property fire insurance market during the interwar period 1919–39. We find that as hypothesised, reinsurance enabled Swedish fire insurers to mitigate underwriting and solvency risks and thus increased their capacity to underwrite new business in uncertain economic times. This in turn helped to increase the supply of indemnity coverage for property (buildings) fire risks in the Swedish insurance market. We also find that as expected, investment earnings are inversely related to reinsurance purchases. However, contrary to what was hypothesised, reinsurance appears to be positively related to liquidity levels, suggesting that over our period of analysis, fire insurers could have been reinsuring to ‘protect’ earnings and accumulated cash reserves therefore enabling investment opportunities to be realised. Analysis of the sub-period 1919–28 further supports this contention, while our results for the economic depression years after 1929 show that reinsurance helped mitigate underwriting and insolvency risks, suggesting that the reinsurance decision of fire insurance companies could be motivated by macroeconomic factors.

    Försäljning av statliga bolag. En jämförande studie av inställning till statligt ägande under två perioder.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats undersöks hur inställningen till statligt ägande förändrats från början av 1990-talet till mitten av 2000-talet. Genom att undersöka den borgerliga regeringens proposition om minskat statligt ägande från 1991/92 med den borgerliga regeringens proposition om minskat statligt ägande från 2006/07 skapas en förståelse om hur de båda förslagen liknar varandra och hur de skiljer sig åt. Till de båda propositionerna lägger oppositionspartierna fram sina åsikter i motioner. Motionerna undersöks och bidrar till att skapa en bredare förståelse för den ekonomiska och politiska förändring som analyseras.

    För att sätta undersökningen i en historisk kontext presenteras en historisk bakgrund. I den historiska bakgrunden diskuteras Sveriges ekonomiska och politiska förändring under 1980-talet fram till alliansregeringens tillträde 2006. Fokus ligger här på de nya ekonomiska idéer som växer fram och hur dessa idéer påverkar det politiska klimatet.

    Genomgånge av de två olika förslagen som undersökningen bygger på visar att det finns likheter men också vissa skillnader mellan de båda förslagen. Regeringen 1991/92 vill sälja av statliga företag för att skapa en mer dynamisk och effektiv marknad. Regeringen 2006/07 vill sälja av statliga företag för att skapa en mer dynamisk och effektiv marknad för att på så sätt skapa fler jobb och bryta utanförskapet.

    Resultatet av undersökningen visar att det finns skillnader i hur de två undersökta regeringarna förhåller sig till statligt ägande. De har olika mål med att sälja ut statliga bolag, den övergripande visionen är annorlunda. Anledningen till detta kan bero på flera olika faktorer. Beroende på hur resultatet tolkas i relation till den historiska kontexten kan flera olika förklaringar konstateras.

    Convergence of CO2 emissions and economic growth in the OECD countries: did the type of fuel matter?2017In: Energy Sources, Part B: Economics, Planning, and Policy, ISSN 1556-7249, Vol. 12, no 7, 618-627 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes convergence in CO2 emissions in the OECD countries with respect to the source of emissions (oil versus coal). The investigated period 1973-2010 is divided into two sub-periods, 1973-1991 and 1992-2010. The first period covers the OPEC oil price shocks, where the OECD oil policy was to a high extent governed by energy security concerns and cold war strategic considerations. The second period corresponds to the end of the cold war and the rise of climate policy in several OECD countries. Due to such contextual differences, oil and coal behave differently in the two sub-periods. The generally stronger convergence with respect to oil-related emissions until 1991 conditional on GDP per capita is compatible with a situation where the rising oil prices led to a strong transformation in the countries of interest. Besides, we evidence decoupling of economic growth from oil-related emissions in the post-cold war period.

    Competing models of organizational form: Risk management strategies and underwriting profitability in the Swedish fire insurance market between 1903 and 19392012In: Journal of Economic History, ISSN 0022-0507, E-ISSN 1471-6372, Vol. 72, no 4, 990-1014 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mutual and stock insurers have coexisted and competed against each other in insurance markets for centuries. In this article, we examine the risk management strategies and underwriting profitability of the different organizational forms in Sweden's property fire insurance market between 1903 and 1939. We demonstrate that stock insurers acted as intermediaries between policyholders and reinsurers to operate effectively in the potentially high-risk segments of the fire insurance market. In contrast, nationwide mutual insurers kept larger reserves to balance fluctuations in claims experiences, while local insurance pools relied on social obligation and trust to mobilize capital after adverse fire events.

    Commercial banking, insurance and economic growth in Sweden between 1830 and 19982009In: Accounting Business and Financial History, ISSN 0958-5206, E-ISSN 1466-4275, Vol. 19, no 1, 21-39 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine empirically the dynamic historical relation between commercial bank lending, insurance and economic (income) growth in Sweden using time-series data from 1830 to 1998 and performing tests for Granger causality. Because of the non-stationary nature of the time series examined the procedure of Toda andYamamoto (1995) is used. Our results, which have accounted for possible regime changes due to different exchange rate mechanisms over time, indicate that insurance has Granger-caused economic growth and bank lending. Therefore, we conclude that insurance is an important prerequisite for stimulating economic growth and that this could have important implications for contemporary developing economies.

    Mutuality as a control for information asymmetry: a historical analysis of the claims experience of mutual and stock fire insur ance companies in Sweden, 1889 to 19392011In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 53, no 7, 1074-1091 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We test two competing arguments regarding the influence of organisational form onunderwritingperformance usingdatafromtheSwedish fireinsuranceindustry for the years 1889 to 1939 – a period of both economic growth and stagnation. Since mutuality is a response to information asymmetry problems, mutual insurers are expected to report lower annual claims relative to premiums than stock insurance companies. However, an alternative view is that stock insurers seek to reduce information asymmetry problems by issuing non-participatory rights insurance contracts with high deductibles that induce risk-sharing between the insurer’s shareholders and policyholders. This implies that stock insurers are likely to report lower annual claims than mutual insurers. Our results show that organisational form is an important determinant of the claims experience of Swedish fire insurers, suggesting that mutuality acts as an effective control for information asymmetries in the market.

    Finansiering av medicinsk forskning genom stiftelsen Therese och Johan Anderssons minne, 1931-19642016Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the first half of the 20th century, the researchers in the medical sciences in Sweden were dependent on funding from private foundations. Earlier research has shown that the foundation Stiftelsen Therese och Johan Anderssons Minne was a financier of great importance especially for the 1920s until the 1950s. This paper is written with the purpose of examining how the financing has changed over time, by analyzing the foundations yearly accounts from 1931 until 1963. I will show that physiologists and chemists took a dominant position in the fight for funds. In conclusion, it seems that the fact that the colleague of teachers at Karolinska had the power to decide who to fund were an important factor for the foundations activity. The characteristics of the medical research exercised by the researchers applying for funds were not the sole factor which affected the outcome.

    Private debt in Sweden in 1900–2013 and the risk of financial crisis2015In: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 63, no 3, 302-323 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study presents new time series data for private debt in Sweden in 1900–2013,including credit from banks, mortgage institutes and credit companies. Thereconstruction of the data is a scientific task by itself, and is complicated bychanged definitions, breaks in the series, and the need for occasionalinterpolation and cross-reference of sources. The obtained data reveal bothqualitative and quantitative changes in the structure of private debt in Swedenduring the period. One finding is a pattern where the era starting with thederegulation of the credit market in 1985 resembles the era preceding World WarTwo. Both periods experienced a high level of private debt-to-GDP ratio as wellas severe financial crises. In a first application of the data, the hypothesis ofrising private debt in the years before a financial crisis is explored through logitregression. The findings are in line with international research, and suggest thathigher lending, especially from banks, might aggravate the risk of financial crisis.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how the outside world´s growing interest in the Arctic, which has emerged due to the opportunities implied by the Arctic‟s retreating sea ice, is affecting theArctic Ocean littoral states‟ relations with each other. It does so by utilizing the Copenhagen Schools‟ theory of securitization in a case study of Canadian and RussianArctic discourse between the years 2007 and 2012. The main findings are that bothRussia and Canada have securitized the Arctic and designated non-Arctic actors as anexistential threat. Through that process their willingness to cooperate with each other hasincreased.

    Enabling socio-technical transitions – electric vehicles and high voltage electricity grids as focal points of low emission futures2017Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today humankind is facing numerous sustainability challenges that require us to question CO2 intensive practices like those present in the transport and energy sector. To meet those challenges, many countries have adopted ambitious climate targets. Achieving such targets requires an understanding of the wider socio-technical context of transitions. The aim of this licentiate thesis is therefore to analyse such socio-technical transitions towards low-emission futures enabled by the electrification of passenger cars and high voltage grid development.

    A combination of different transitions theories (for ex. Multi-level perspective and Technological innovation systems) and institutional theory has been used. To reach the aim paper I analyses the climate impacts of electric vehicles (EVs) and policy measures to achieve a breakthrough scenario for EVs. The results show that a mixture of short and long term policies are needed that take into account the technology development stage and behavioural aspects of EV adopters. Paper II addresses the need to include the high voltage transmission grid and its planning procedures as a central part of debates on transitions. Therefore the opportunities, challenges and reasons for conflict in the established regime are studied. The results show that in order to achieve a sustainable grid development regime, it is necessary to spend time on achieving legitimacy and social sustainability. The third paper uses semi-structured expert interviews and focuses on innovation dynamics for EV adoption. By focusing on dynamics instead of single policy measures, it is possible to grasp interactions within a niche, but also in between a niche, regime and landscape. The results show that strong initial technology legitimacy was needed to start substantial innovation dynamics. This could be further strengthened with a strong and broad coalition of actors. Both those factors led, if present, to an improved variety and match of policy instruments.

    As such this thesis has shown that transitions are not just about technology or policy instruments as such but about the dynamics and processes needed to enable them. This can be relevant in other transitions that otherwise may underestimate the importance of these components.

    System innovation dynamics around electric vehicles. The cases of Norway, Denmark and Sweden.Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the comparison of electric car innovation patterns in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Doing so, it takes a closer look at what the most essential dynamics in the systems were over time and what enabled those dynamics. The main research aim is to contribute to a wider understanding of why Norway is so much ahead of Sweden and Denmark in electric car adoption. The purpose is also to adopt a perspective that goes beyond a mere focus on economic policy instruments. In order to do so different theory elements are combined in a framework. These elements stem from the transition theory literature field, especially the technological innovation system (TIS) and the multi-level perspective (MLP). This combination allows analysing the development behind a dynamic, not just when it comes to an innovation itself but also with regards to the established regime. The data is gathered through analysis of existing documents and data as well as a series of 27 expert interviews conducted in the three case countries. The findings suggest that there are important differences in transition patterns that can account for the electric vehicle (EV) diffusion situation we can find nowadays in the three Nordic countries. An important stepping stone was the need for a very strong legitimacy of the original EV vision that is also anchored in a coordinated, sector overarching coalition of actors that thinks strategically and long term. Moreover some general beneficial dynamics could be identified across the countries in question. In Norway these beneficial dynamics can be summarised as a systems motor, in Denmark as a failed entrepreneurial motor that shifted towards a constrained municipal motor and in Sweden as a loosely, coordinated and weaker version of a systems motor.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det övergripande syftet med uppsatsen var att undersöka hur och till vilken grad SKF:s utländska investerare har påverkat utvecklingen i SKF mellan 1988 och 2002. Jag valde att inrikta mig på tre specifika områden. För det första valde jag att undersöka utvecklingen kring ägarstrukturen och makten inom SKF. För det andra valde jag att undersöka utländska investerares påverkan på SKF:s finanser och för det tredje att undersöka ett eventuellt samband mellan andelen utländska investerare och SKF-aktiens kursutvecklingUndersökningen resulterade i att det är väldigt svårt att påvisa ett samband mellan utländska investerares ökande ägarandel och SKF:s generella utveckling. Ingen specifik andel kan tillmätas dem, men vi får trots det inte förbise att de faktiskt ägde en allt större del i SKF.

    United we stand, divided we fall: historical trajectory of strategic renewal activities at the Scandinavian Airlines System, 1946–20122017In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 59, no 4, 572-606 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the second half of the twentieth century saw the rise and fall of ‘multi-flag companies’ (MFCs) in the civil aviation industry, our understanding of how some managed to buck the trend and achieve longevity remains limited. This article advances business history and strategic management research by examining the strategic renewal activities of Scandinavian Airlines (formerly Scandinavian Airlines System [SAS]) during the period 1946–2012. The study sheds light on the key roles of private and state owners, rivals as well as banks, in critical financial phases are discussed in terms of longevity in the company. The longevity of the business stems from the leaders’ ability to develop as anticipated and respond to change in their competitive arena in close interaction with the owners. Thus, incumbent firms that strategically renew themselves prior to or during market reform, such as deregulation, enhance their chances of developing the size of their networks and revenue streams. Our main contribution to business history and strategic management literatures is the development of context-specific stages, which shed light on the evolution of strategic renewal activities and shifts from older processes and routines towards customer service and efficiency.

    Hushållsekonomin och folkhälsan: Undersökning om preferenser och inkomst för Sverige 1913-19142016Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att undersöka huruvida det var inkomsten eller om det var preferenser oberoende av inkomsten som var främsta orsaken till hur hushåll spenderade pengar på bostad och hygien. Det kommer göras genom ett urval på 100 hushåll från Socialstyrelsens Levnadskostnadsundersökningar från 1913-1914. Det resultat som framkom var att den främsta orsaken var inkomsten och inte preferenser obundna till inkomsten.

    Socialt Kapital och de Svenska Hjälpkassorna: En historisk undersökning om föreningar, socialt kapital och ekonomisk utveckling2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this research is to examine some historical aspects of Robert Putnam’s thesisabout voluntary associations and social capital. According to a micro perspective theory ofsocial capital the trust and reciprocity required and created by associations is important toexplain the disparity between institutional performance and socioeconomic development ofsocieties. The social patterns governing this therefore set a precedent for the future. Using themutual sickness benefit societies in Sweden as variable for voluntary associations around1884, the essay discusses the possible links between social capital, associations and long termeconomic development. The history and structure of the mutual benefit societies is analysed,and the regional differences in social capital and economic development 1958-1980 arecompared to the spread and extension of these benefit societies in 1884. The concludingchapter notes many difficulties in establishing empirical evidence of the discussed theories,pushes the role of some existing alternative explanations and makes a few suggestions onfurther historical research of the mutual benefit societies in the field of social capital.

    En studie av den amerikanska identitetsdiskursen efter 11 september: En diskursanalys av Amerikanska tidningar som sträcker sig från terroristattackernaden 11 september 2001 till kriget mot Afghanistan den 9 oktober 2001.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här uppsatsen undersöker jag hur den amerikanska identitetsdiskursen såg ut efterterroristattackerna den 11 september 2001. Jag utgår ifrån ett postmodernt perspektiv. Denteoretiska utgångspunkten är huvudsakligen hämtad från David Campbells teorier om "we"och "the other" och Campbells teori om beroendeförhållandet mellan interna identiteter ochextern utrikespolitik.För att hitta den offentliga diskursen har jag använt mig av amerikanska tidningar. Jag harkartlagt om identitetsdiskursen skiljer sig åt mellan tidningarna och vilket utrymme de olikadiskurserna tar i den offentliga debatten. Vilka röster var tongivande och vilka var det inte?Har den allmänna diskursen speglat det utrikespolitiska agerandet?Som metod har jag använt diskursanalys enligt Laclau och Mouffe.Studien visar att det fanns två tydliga diskurser en Allmän och Alternativ. Inom bådadiskurserna identifieras "we" och "the other" på ett tydligt sätt – men med olika innebörd.Min tolkning av resultaten är att den Allmänna diskursen var så dominerande att denalternativa diskursen marginaliserades. Utrikespolitikens möjlighetsvillkor blev såledesmycket snäva och alternativa handlingslinjer till att gå till krig mot terrorismen blev intepolitisk möjliga.

    Swedish Income Distribution and Wealth Concentration 1900-1985: The interconnection between data and contemporary news outlets2017Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper holds a study of Swedish inequality from 1900-1985 with specific focus on the half-decades of 1900-1905 and 1980-1985. Subsequently constructed data and contemporary news outlets are presented to develop further understanding upon how inequality was depicted in comparison to data. Through a comparison of the time-periods, the developed understanding and changed stance of the public on the issue of inequality is examined. This method of examination gives new insight upon how the widening knowledge of inequality during the 1900s, through the development of micro-economic measurements, as well as more complete tax returns, has affected the depiction of the issue. The results of the study suggest that news articles of the latter period (1980-1985), tend to be more data-based than during the former time-period, where general assumptions were more frequent. It additionally suggests that the decreased inequality over the 20th century did not lessen the discussion of inequality, but rather the opposite. The news articles furthermore do not discuss inequality in relation to the presented data - the long-term changes are not clearly stated in the news outlets - but are in conclusion unconsciously considered, through the general knowledge of current inequality, through tax levels etc.

    Mot framtiden på gamla spår?: Regionala intressegrupper och beslutsprocesser kring kustjärnvägarna i Norrland under 1900-talet2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation the construction of two coastal railways, the East Coast Line and the Bothnia Line, in the Norrland region of northern Sweden is used as a case study of how regionally based interest groups are formed, and how they gain access to decision-making processes on a national level. In periods when a number of preconditions were in place, a window of opportunity opened for the coastal railway that the regional elites could exploit. Among these was the ability to form a coherent regional interest group, through institutions that created platforms and power-bases that enable regional elites to co-operate and act on regional and national levels.The existence of an institutional framework that was adapitve towards regional railway promotion was also important. The study shows that the coastal railway had a very flexible role on the agenda, as it provided a fixed solution against which actors could pin a multitude of different problems. An important factor for explaining the development of the coastal railway question in Norrland was the ideological notion of the region itself. Being a vast, resource-rich and sparsely populated region, Norrland had almost always received special consideration in both public opinion and national policy making. It also created a remarkable stubbornness among the regional actors in working for the coastal railway. Regional interest groups had also learnt that linking their claims to Norrland's peripheral position had high legitimacy on the national arena, by claiming the need for regional fairness and/or the national importance of the regional export-intensive industries. This was instrumental in justifying the repeated exemptions from the national railway policy regimes that ultimately were decissive in making the regional elites successful.
