Resource description

In its aim to explore some of the concrete consequences of regional renewal, this paper deals with the question to what extent dramatic structural transformation and renewal in Swedish regions is paralleled by favourable developments of household income, employment growth and value added total growth. We stud ied the period 1978 to 2004, building on previous research concerning the regional consequences of the dramatic technology-shift process that has been taking place in Sweden. Long-term changes in the relationships between Swedish regions are analysed by establishing conceptual connections between regional long-term economic transformation and welfare. It is argued that there are time- lags as well as systemic spatial asymmetries when it comes to technology- induced restructuring, overall regional economic growth, employment creation, and income growth. We used data from the DEVIL (Databases of Evolutionary Economic Geography in Lund) combined with additional data sets from Statistics Sweden. (authorĀ“s abstract) ; Series: SRE - Discussion Papers
