Who are the greatest economic thinkers of Sweden? Seventeen essays on seven Swedish economists aim to answer this question, exploring the contributions of Knut Wicksell, Eli Heckscher, Bertil Ohlin, Torsten Gårdlund, Sven Rydenfelt, Staffan Burenstam Linder and Jaime Behar. Swedish academic economists have by and large withdrawn from the public debate but this book celebrates Swedish Economic Thought from Knut Wicksell to the present.
