Abstract

Rapid urbanization in developing countries today has increased the interest in the historical experiences of developed countries. Through a case study on Sweden, it is hoped that further insights will be gained about the complex interaction of economic and demographic variables during a country's industrialization phase.

This paper presents the model which will be used for an analysis of Swedish demoeconomic development. This general equilibrium model has been designed to capture specific Swedish characteristics, especially the extent and pattern of foreign trade and emigration which have been given an explicit treatment and a crucial role in the model. The analysis of these aspects will be carried out through counterfactual simulations for the 1870-1914 period.
