Lennart Schön (1946-2016) In Memoriam17 January, 2016 at 10:02 | Posted in Varia | Leave a comment
Swedish economic historians were deeply saddened to learn of the death earlier this month of professor Lennart Schön.
Schön contributed to many areas of Swedish economic history. Most important was his development of a long-run cycles perspective on Swedish industrial society’s history (on which we worked together in a couple of research projects in the 1990s, carrying further the structural analytical tradition of Johan Åkerman, Erik Dahmén and Ingvar Svennilson).
The greatest Swedish economic historian since Eli Heckscher has passed away.
He is held in great esteem and we all truly miss this open-minded, good-hearted and passionate researcher.
Rest in peace my friend.
