Sammanfattning

Syftet med denna uppsats är att diskutera den svenska tillväxtproblematiken. Tyngdpunkt läggs på Sveriges tillväxt och konjunkturväxlingar i ett längre perspektiv och i jämförelse med andra länder inom OECD. Bl.a. studeras vilken tillväxt som krävs för att Sverige ska få en bättre placering i BNP per capita ligan. Uppsatsen presenterar inga kausala förklaringar, utan är mer av deskriptiv natur.

Sammanfattning

For the period 1800 onwards, annual figures over GDP and GDP per capita for Sweden have been presented in different studies. For the 18th century no such annual series exist. The aim of this paper is to present annual data on GDP and GDP per capita in volume values for Sweden for the whole period 1720-1800. Only very rough estimates are provided, which are not based on any disaggregation of the different components of GDP. To estimate annual fluctuations, four different indicators are used: changes in the official accounts of harvests, marriage rates, the price of rye and import of un-milled grains. When investigating the long-term trends, the conclusion is that there was only a very modest increase in GDP per capita over the studied period. The growth of the GDP per capita became substantial not until the mid 19th century. However, GDP grew significantly during the studied period, but this growth mainly took the form of population growth. This in itself constituted a kind of technological progress, allowing a larger population per unit of land without a significant decrease in per capita production.
