The costs and finances of World War I according to Eli F. Heckscher

Fregert, Klas LU (2016) In Oeconomia 6(4). p.515-524
Abstract (Swedish)
Heckscher published in 1915 a book on the economics of World War I in Swedish. He analyzed the costs and the finances of war along similar lines as his contemporary Pigou (1916). Heckscher reached farther by making a distinction between the short and the long-run costs of war. He also provided a comprehensive theoretical and empirical analysis of the sources of funds for war finance, including a pioneering analysis of the inflation tax.
