Bumblebee Nation – The hidden story of the new Swedish Model

Bumblebee Nation – The hidden story of the new Swedish Model

Sweden’s economy has several distinctive features which, in resemblance to the bumblebee, should prevent it from flying. And yet, it actually flies better than most countries, all things considered. In this book economist journalist David Crouch has studied how Sweden’s economy works and how the new Swedish model has evolved. The welfare system, the role of the unions, paternity leave, the role of women in the labor market and immigration are some of the topics covered. The book is based on interviews with a large number of business leaders and decision makers, who all have played an active role in the Swedish bumlebee’s successful flight.

“David Crouch provides a great guide to the much-cited but little examined Swedish model – especially how it has evolved over time and the challenges it now faces.”

Stockholmsbörsen på en förändrad finansmarknad

Stockholmsbörsen på en förändrad finansmarknad

Over the past decades, Swedish as well as international stock exchanges have undergone a complete change, transforming from national, semi-public markets into company-driven, privatized and global businesses. For the Stockholm Stock Exchange (Stockholmsbörsen), this transformation was particularly dramatic since a monopoly business over the course of a few years was replaced by a privately–owned business that actively sought to acquire other stock exchanges in the international market. This book describes and analyzes the development and transformation of the Stockholm Stock Exchange from the mid-1960s until the beginning of the 2010s.
The authors are the economics historians Mats Larsson, Oskar Broberg, Peter Hedberg, Lars Karlsson, Åsa Malmström-Rognes, Tom Petersson and Anders Ögren.
