Abstract

Using longitudinal data which include real estate wealth, financial assets, as well as consumer durables, changes in the distribution of wealth in Sweden are related to major changes in asset prices and in incentives to hold various assets in the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s. The authors' analysis of the mobility of wealth indicates that decile mobility is higher in Sweden than in the United States while the analysis of who is gaining and who is loosing shows results similar to those of previous studies.
