    'Getting to Denmark': the role of agricultural elites for development2023In: Journal of economic growth (Boston), ISSN 1381-4338, E-ISSN 1573-7020, Vol. 28, p. 525-569Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We explore the role of elites for development and the spread of industrialized dairying in Denmark in the 1880s. We demonstrate that the location of early proto-modern dairies, introduced by landowning elites from northern Germany in the eighteenth century, explains the location of industrialized dairying in 1890: an increase of one standard deviation in elite influence increases industrialized dairying by 56 percent of the mean exposure in one specification. We interpret this as evidence for a spread of ideas from the elites to the peasantry, which we capture through measures of specialization in dairying and demand for education and identify a causal relationship using an instrument based on distance to the influential first mover. Finally, we demonstrate that areas with cooperatives enjoyed greater wealth by the twentieth century, and that they are today associated with other Danish cultural attributes: a belief in democracy and individualism.

    Freedom to Divorce or Protection of marriage?: The Divorce Laws in Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the Early Twentieth Century2011In: Journal of Family History, ISSN 0363-1990, E-ISSN 1552-5473, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 191-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the period 1909—1927, new laws concerning divorce and marriage were enacted by the Scandinavian countries. Both at the time and more recently, these laws were considered as ‘‘liberal’’ as they promoted greater freedom to divorce based on individuality and gender equality. In this article, the authors first analyze the changes in these Family laws in the early twentieth century. Then, the authors study the effect of these laws on divorce and marriage patterns. As these laws did not modify the trend in divorce rates, the authors ask why this was the case. The authors’ conclusions are that the laws were more concerned with preserving the sanctity of marriage and maintaining social order than with promoting individual freedom and gender equality.

    Controlling tuberculosis? Evidence from the first community-wide health experiment2020In: Journal of Development Economics, ISSN 0304-3878, E-ISSN 1872-6089, Vol. 146, p. 102510-102510, article id 102510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the immediate and long-run health effects of the first community-based health intervention in the world – the Framingham Health and Tuberculosis Demonstration, 1917–1923. The official evaluation committee and the historical narrative suggest that the Demonstration was highly successful in controlling tuberculosis and reducing mortality. Using newly digitized annual cause-of-death data for municipalities in Massachusetts, 1901–1934, and different empirical strategies, we find little evidence to support this positive assessment. Although we find that the Demonstration increased the identification of new TB case, this did not translate into reductions in tuberculosis mortality, total mortality, or infant mortality. This evidence contributes to an ongoing debate on whether public health interventions mattered for the historical decline in (tuberculosis) mortality prior to modern medicine and may help us to understand how to lower the burden of tuberculosis in the developing world today.

    Taking sanctioning seriously: The impact of sanctions on the resilience of historical commons in Europe2021In: Journal of Rural Studies, ISSN 0743-0167, E-ISSN 1873-1392, Vol. 87, p. 181-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In their studies of collective exploitation of common-pool resources, Ostrom and other scholars have stressed the importance of sanctioning as an essential method for preventing overuse and, eventually, the collapse of commons. However, most of the available evidence is based on data covering a relatively small period in history, and thus does not inform us about the evolution of rules, including sanctions, over time. In this article, we demonstrate, based on historical sources covering several centuries, that sanctioning was not always the preferred way of preventing or dealing with free-riding in institutions for collective action, but that the legal context is decisive to understand why commoners in some countries were using more sanctions than those in others to regulate commoners' behavior. Commoners that could self-govern their resources used fewer sanctions, and when they did, it was mainly to avoid overuse of their most vulnerable resources. Moreover, graduated sanctioning seems to be less important than suggested in Ostrom's famous Design Principles, and was reserved primarily for immediate threats to the commons' resources. We also show the importance of other types of rules, such as differentiated rules, which have hardly been taken into account in literature to date.

    Monopsony Power and Wages: Evidence from the Introduction of Serfdom in Denmark2022In: Economic Journal, ISSN 0013-0133, E-ISSN 1468-0297, Vol. 132, no 648, p. 2835-2872Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We exploit a large historical shock to the Danish labour market to provide evidence of how restrictions on labour mobility increase monopsony power and thereby reduce wages. By severely limiting the possibility of the rural population to work beyond their place of birth, the reintroduction of serfdom in 1733 aimed to increase monopsony power and secure cheaper labour in the countryside. Using a unique data source based on the archives of estates from the eighteenth century, we test whether serfdom affected the wages of farmhands more strongly than other groups in the labour market, and results based on a difference-in-differences approach reveal evidence consistent with a strong negative effect following its introduction. This is confirmed when we use a different control group from the Swedish province of Scania. We also investigate whether one mechanism was that boys with rural backgrounds were prevented from taking up apprenticeships in towns and find suggestive evidence that this was indeed the case.

    Laga skifte i Skruvby: jord och befolkning 1825-18452004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsens syfte är att med hjälp av mantalslängder och skiftesprotokoll undersöka hur Skruvby, ett litet småländskt bysamhälle, förändrades i samband med laga skiftet som genomfördes 1827-1828. Undersökningsperioden är på 20 år, mellan 1825 och 1845, för att kunna se förändringarna på lite längre sikt. För att genomföra denna undersökning har jag tagit hjälp av följande huvudfrågeställning: Vad betydde laga skiftet för de ekonomiska,demografiska och sociala förändringarna i Skruvby mellan 1825-1845?

    Som sammanfattande svar på huvudfrågeställningen kan man säga att laga skiftesreformen i Skruvby medförde eller bidrog till tre tydliga effekter. Den första var en folkökning bland den obesuttna delen av befolkningen. Den andra effekten var en proletariseringsprocess, eftersom en ökning av den obesuttna delen av befolkningen måste ha inneburit att fler var tvungna att förlita sig på inkomster från andra håll än jordägande, exempelvis dagsverken. Slutligen skedde en uppsplittring av den mantalssatta jorden, förmodligen på grund av att reglerna för handel med och uppstyckning av jord mildrades i samband med skiftet. Det blev helt enkelt lättare att göra lite mer som man ville med sitt jordinnehav.

    En historisk tidsresa med slutdestination ‘gränsdragning’: En holistisk studie av hur tankefiguren “arbetsliv/ privatliv” utvecklats till Work life balance och gränsdragning2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är många som är aktiva i diskussionen om work life balance och gränsdragningen mellan arbetsliv och privatliv, allt från forskare till filosofer och sociologer. Även politiker och lagstiftare är med och bidrar till samtalet och alla dessa aktörer påverkar säkerligen hur vi, som individer, uppfattar skillnaden mellan arbetsliv och privatliv och hur gränsen däremellan bör konstrueras. 

    Till skillnad från tidigare studier går vi i vår studie till botten med hur samtalet utvecklats historiskt och till slut nått den uppfattning vi idag har av ”arbetsliv/ privatliv”. På så sätt hoppas vi kunna öka förståelsen för hur och varför vi uppfattar gränsdragningen som vi gör och vad vi kan göra för att bemästra just vår situation, för att nå en ökad balans mellan arbetsliv och privatliv. För att ta reda på detta reser vi i historien och får chans att uppleva och tolka olika tiders uppfattning av tankefiguren “arbetsliv/privatliv”, genom Asplunds (1979) tankefigurmodell. 

    Genom vår historiska tidsresa har vi ökat vår, och förhoppningsvis din, förståelse för vad som kan påverka den enskilda individen i den gränsdragande processen och varifrån uppfattningen om att arbetsliv och privatliv skiljer sig ifrån varandra, kommer. Slutligen är du nu välkommen att följa med på en historisk resa, med slutdestination ‘gränsdragning’.

    Entrepreneurial relationship marketing in 19th century India - The case of railway contractor Joseph Stephens2023In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 65, no 3, p. 525-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our article is based on the diaries of Joseph Stephens, a 19th century Swedish railway contractor in British India. The Stephens' diaries, discovered in 2008, are the only one of their kind, offering an insight into the life of a railway contractor from that era. The diaries reveal a web of networks and relationships that helped Stephens achieve success as a small-scale railway contractor. We use the theoretical lens of Gummesson's entrepreneurial relationship marketing to analyse Stephens' network of social and work relationships and find a connection between his networks and Gummesson's framework. We contribute to literature by presenting a different perspective on railway contractors from that period and propose that business practices of the past can be studied vis-a-vis contemporary theories of entrepreneurship and marketing.

    Landlords, Land Companies, Farmers, and Migrant Workers in Global Agrarian Capitalism until the First World War2005In: Przeglad Polonijny, ISSN 0137-303X, Vol. XXXI, no 1, p. 67-86Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I want to outline some perspectives of the political economy of the mass migration, which can be connected to agrarian capitalism as a world wide and long lasting process. One of its starting points is the changing nature of landowning from vague definitions of ownership to a distinct individual one, whereby land turned into a commodity on a growing land market. The process started in England and continued in the northwestern parts of the European continent, and then it was developed in areas, where Europeans settled as landowners.

    Another starting point is the proletarianization process that is connected to the changing nature of land ownership, meaning that sons and daughters faced growing difficulties to take over the family farm but instead had to turn into laborers or try to find land somewhere else. Thus, the mass migration that leads to settling and homesteading in another land - may it be North America, South Africa, Australia or Bosnia - should be looked upon as a way of avoiding proletarianization but instead keeping the social position as a farmer. Often that mass migration included ejection of native peoples, who did not practice individual and private land owning principles.

    Some of the farmers - the agrarian bourgeoisie - were one of the foundations of capitalist modes of production, and they employed farm workers permanently or for seasonal work in large numbers. These workers migrated to areas with large-scale commercial farming. Where the large migrant settlers/homesteaders demanded large numbers of workers but could not get them as for instance in the southern parts of North America and South Africa, forced labor was recruited in different ways. In those cases, the class relations were racialized, indicating that mass migration often must be connected to an analysis of ethnic relations. I will also touch upon the issue of the gendered and generational perspective of mass migration within a growing, worldwide agrarian capitalism.

    Polish Migration to Denmark and Sweden before World War 12008In: Przeglad Polonijny, ISSN 0137-303X, Vol. XXXIII, no 4, p. 63-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although Polish migration to Denmark and Sweden in the early 20th century was not very numerous and was limited in time (1890-1929), it is worth a study, because it had a specific and odd characteristic. Labour and seasonal migration dominated totally. Children of peasants left their homes to earn money, which they sent home, and the families could survive and reproduce themselves of part of the Polish peasant class. Most migrants were young women, who came from Galizia and Russian Poland, but also some men came from Russian Poland.

    In this article, I criticize the existing view in Denmark and Sweden that Polish migrants were wage depressors and/or strike breakers. Instead, I argue, that a vast majority of them made a labour reserve. Employers in Denmark and Sweden actively recruited and contracted Polish workers for seasonal work that native workers were not willing or able to perform on offered conditions. The employers sent the Polish workers back home when there was no more demand for their labour during the winter season, and they recruited workers again when extra labour was demanded next spring. Thus, the Polish workers could spend winter time with their families, and Danish and Swedish employers did not have to pay the reproduction cost of its labour reserve, when they could not put the Polish workers to do profitable labour.

    The Malthusian model is the subject of a fierce debate within economic history. Although the positive causal relationship postulated from living standards to population growth is relatively uncontroversial for preindustrial societies, this cannot be said for the other key relationship, diminishing returns due to fixed supplies of land. We argue that Denmark, which was characterized by extreme resource and environmental constraints until the final decades of the eighteenth century, provides an ideal setting for testing whether any society was ever truly Malthusian. We employ a cointegrated VAR model on Danish data from 1731 to 1800, finding evidence for diminishing returns until ca. 1775. Yet this relationship disappears in the late-eighteenth century, consistent with an increasing pace of technological progress and the emergence of what Unified Growth Theory has termed the “post-Malthusian” era.

    To the manor born: a new microlevel wage database for eighteenth-century Denmark2022In: European Review of Economic History, ISSN 1361-4916, E-ISSN 1474-0044, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 302-310Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We document and make available to the scholarly community a uniquely detailed database of 20,680 observations of wages for men, women, and children and 30,000 observations of prices from eighteenth-century rural Denmark. These microlevel data were originally collected by the Danish Price History Project but have not previously been released. To illustrate the usefulness of such data, we discuss possible applications.
