Roger Svensson

Associate Professor of Economics at Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN)

Roger Svensson is interested in issues related to the private sector, entrepreneurship, technology transfer and technology development. The effects of government interventions or subsidies to stimulate growth are here important. He has also a great interest in applying economic theory to economic-historical environments, especially monetary policy. Among the questions that Roger Svensson tries to answer with his research are: When should the government subsidize entrepreneurs and innovative firms? How should the system with intellectual properties be designed to create higher welfare? In which situations should inventors sell the patent or enter the market? Application of economic theory on historical monetary systems.
