Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden have for a long time been ranked among the top ten most growth-oriented economies of the world. Creating Nordic Capitalism illuminates how and why these small North European states have come to be identified with growth and innovation. Detailed case-studies focus on the companies who have driven the change, while the economic context is laid out clearly by region.


This fascinating study of the Nordic model demonstrates the conditions and strategies that led to a dynamic new breed of capitalism. Students and lecturers alike will benefit further from this companion website containing various support materials.
