Volume III: Banking, Bonds, National Wealth, and Stockholm House Prices, 1420–2020

1 December 2022 saw the publication of a new book of statistics concerning the development of the Swedish monetary system, Historical Monetary and Financial Statistics for Sweden, Volume III: Banking, Bonds, National Wealth, and Stockholm House Prices, 1420–2020.

The book is the third in a series of three books on financial history and focuses on the historical development of property prices in Stockholm, in a series that extends back to the Middle Ages. This volume also contains an overview of the emergence of the Swedish banking sector, from the beginning of the 1700s until now, presented in two chapters. These are supplemented with a chapter about the history of the Swedish bond market. The final chapter of the book deals with the development of Swedish national wealth in a broad, but also in-depth, overview.

The book, which is published by the Riksbank together with publishers Ekelids Förlag AB, forms part of a more comprehensive project that has previously resulted in a database of historical monetary statistics which can be found on the Riksbank's website. The first book was published in 2010 and presents data on exchange rates, prices and wages, with some series going all the way back to the 13th century. The second book was published in 2014 and focuses on property prices, gross domestic product, share prices, money supply, sovereign debt and the Riksbank's accounts.
