Many economists active in Sweden during the interwar period are still famous today, others forgotten. They can be grouped into three generations. Gustav Cassel, David Davidson and Knut Wicksell belong to the older generation. The members of the Stockholm School of Economics, among whom Erik Lindahl, Gunnar Myrdal and Bertil Ohlin are the most well-known, belong to the younger generation. Of those belonging to the middle generation, Eli Heckscher is the only one wellknown to present-day economists. Other economists of that generation who at the time were among the leaders in their field are now almost forgotten, as for example Gösta Bagge.
