The price of sugar in Sweden : Data, source & methods
Abstract: This paper presents a new price series for sugar in
Sweden, or more exactly Stockholm, in a long-term perspective (1624–1900).
Prior to this, no price data has been available from Sweden for this
commodity. The paper is devoted to presenting source-related and technical
aspects of the price series, as well as the price series as such. Analysis
of the development of prices will be conducted in other papers.
