Doctor of Philosophy (Law) Uppsala University, 1877.
One of the founders of neoclassical economics in Sweden, fre-
engaged in controversies with
and Wicksell. His published
thesis, Bidrag Till Laran.. was both
an analysis of capital along classical
lines, and an economic theory based on
the structure of wants. The book estab-
lished his reputation and in later years
he became an enthusiastic student of
Ricardo’s writings and editor of Scandi-
navia’s leading economic journal.
