    Abstract

    Since 1990, the Swedish manufacturing sector has enjoyed the fastest labour productivity growth among the 12 OECD countries for which US Bureau of Labor Statistics data are published. The author provides an analysis of the factors behind this exemplary performance, finding that most of it was due to the radio, television and communication equipment industry, and in particular to one company in the sector, Ericsson.
