Is cooperation good? : A case study about the The Cooperative of Bohuslän’s Stone Industry establishment as a stone deliverer to Hamburg in 1926 by using Robert Axelrod’s theory of cooperation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare historisk forskning kring stenindustrin i Bohuslän har fokuserat på utvecklingen av produktionen, kulturens inverkan på hur stenarbetarna organiserade sig, och hur kulturmötet var mellan ideologiska ambulerande stenhuggare och bofasta konservativa bohuslänningar. Den här uppsatsen byter till ett ekonomiskt evolutionärt perspektiv utvecklat av ekonomerna Nelson och Winter. Det är en kritik av den rationelle aktören. Företag är analogt med organismer som är olika väl anpassade till marknadsförändringar. Uppsatsen är en fallstudie för att undersöka hur ett nytt företag kan etablera sig på en överetablerad marknad. 1926 bildas Bohusläns Kooperativa Stenindustri u.p.a. i Hovenäset av en grupp stenhuggare. De anlitar I/S Chr. V. Pedersen & Hagensen för att ordna anbud i Danmark och hjälpa dem att bli stenleverantörer till Hamburg. Frågeställningen är om statsvetaren Robert Axelrods samarbetsteori kan belysa och bidra med en större förståelse till hur de kunde etablera sig som stenleverantörer. Hur utvecklade de rutiner och varför ville de exportera till Hamburg. Besvarandet av frågorna gjordes genom att analysera korrespondensen mellan kooperationens medlemmar och det danska företaget.  Uppsatsen kan visa att genom reciprokt agerande kunde ett stabilt samarbete uppnås. Rutiner utvecklades genom dialog och Hamburg sågs som ett brohuvud in på den tyska marknaden.

Abstract [en]

Earlier historical research into the stone industry in Bohuslän, a province in Sweden, has focused on the development of production, how culture impacted on the way the stonemasons organized themselves or the cultural meeting between ideologically driven travelling stonemasons and local and conservative sedentary. This thesis changes the perspective to economic evolutionary history developed by the economists Nelson and Winter. It is a critic of the rational agent. According to the theory companies are analogue to organisms, which are differently well adapted to market changes. The thesis is a case study and investigates how a company is able to establish itself on an overripe market place. The Cooperative of Bohuslän’s Stoneindustry” was formed in Hovenäset, a small fishing village in Bohuslän which worked with the Danish company I/S Chr. V. Pedersen & Hagensen to establish itself as stone deliverers to Hamburg. The questions asked are if political scientist Robert Axelrods theory of cooperation can illuminate how new companies are able to enter a ripe market, how the co-operative developed routines and why they wanted to export to Hamburg. The questions are answered by analysing the correspondence between the members of the co-operative and the Danish company. The thesis is able to show that a beneficiary stable cooperation was possible through tit for tat or reciprocal action. Routines developed through dialog between the different members and the Danish company. Hamburg was seen as an entry point into the German market.
