Abstract [en]

Deregulation, industrialization and principles of natural law - The thoughts and ideas of leading Swedish capital representatives, concerning national economy during the initial stage of the industrialization The purpose of this essay is to study the thoughts and ideas concerning national economy expressed by leading Swedish capital representatives during the initial stage of the industrialization. The essay focuses on leading capital representatives, in contrast to a mainly general study of ideas in the tradition of history of ideas - this because of the specific interest of the capital in the process of the industrialization. The roll of a leading capital representative in the process of industrialization is discussed and used as a base of theory. To fulfil the purpose of the essay the study has taken on a qualitative approach. The main sources investigated are the Swedish estate protocols of the Burghers from the Riksdag of 1834-35 with the complementary addition of some correspondence. Taken certain further demarcations in account makes managing director of the company of Uddeholm, Jonas Waern (1799-1868) the primary subject of the study. Waern did not publish any of his thoughts concerning national economy (e.g. no publications available) which of course is a fact that sets mark on this study. Other sources studied are the posthumously published speeches of bishop and ironworks owner Carl Adolph Agardh (1785-1859). In this way thoughts and ideas of the two persons are studied, discussed and related to each other and the ideas of their surrounding society. The study focuses mainly on frequent themes in the thoughts and ideas concerning national economy. This especially brings out thoughts on deregulation/liberalization, the roll/function of agriculture, a private system of banking and credit, principles of natural law and a few other, more specific issues. The comparison of Waerns and Agardhs ideas with those of their surrounding shows that in most cases these mainly correspond. Certain borderline cases are discussed further.
