About the Heckscher lecture

The Heckscher Lecture is arranged each year by The EHFF Institute for Economic and Business History Research and The Ratio Institute, to honor Professor Eli F. Heckscher and his work.

For each year’s lecture, a distinguished economist and researcher is invited, of which a few have later received the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, including the 2018 laureate, Paul Romer.

Eli F. Heckscher was active at the Stockholm School of Economics as an economist and economic historian and he was a leading scholar in those subjects for half a century. His work was mainly focused on economic theory and methods, Swedish economic history and institutional economic analyses. He is most famous for co-developing the Heckscher-Ohlin theorem in international economics.
