  • Economic History


My PhD dissertation aimed to explore the origins of income and health development in twentieth-century Sweden, in particular by studying whether and to what extent they can be driven by health and disease in early childhood. I approach it by instrumenting changes in child/early-life health endowments with public health interventions, such as expansion of public health care and spread of antibiotics. The results suggest strong links between early-life health and later-life health and socio-economic outcomes.
