Industrial Economics in Scandinavia
Abstract: Based on diverse research methods, we trace and map
industrial economics research in Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the periode
of 1880 to 1908. After describing this research in terms of key
contributors, we argue that industrial economics developed rather unevenly
in the Scandinavian countries. Danish research was mainly theoretical and
strongly oriented towards the international context, whereas Norwegian
research was largely industry analysis with a strong leaning towards
managerial economics. Swedish research in industrial economics is very
scant until the end of the 1960s.
