About Erik Bengtsson

My name is Erik Bengtsson. I am a postdoctoral researcher in Economic History atLund University, and I also am affiliated with the Economic History Unit at University of Gothenburg, where I have a project on macroeconomic history and am involved in a Swedish-Brazilian teaching project. I finished my PhD in Gothenburg late 2013 and moved to Lund in 2015.

I do research on wealth distribution, industrial productivity, economic inequality, wage bargaining institutions, and income distribution in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. I would define my research focus as a mix of macroeconomic history and comparative political economy.
