  2. 2. The Money of Monarchs : The Importance of Non-Tax Revenue for Autocratic Rule in Early Modern Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Klas Nilsson; [2017]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; revenue; autocracy; regime change; fiscal sociology; public finance; state-building; Sweden; Early Modern Europe; Rentier State; royal power; statsinkomster; statsstyre; politisk utveckling; Rentier State; Rentierism; skattesystem; tidigmodern statsbildning; Sverige; europeisk historia;

    Sammanfattning : According to a venerable argument about the formation of political regimes in historical Europe, taxation goes hand in hand with representation, as financial needs forced rulers to trade rights for revenue. In this dissertation I explore the reverse assumption, asking whether it is the case that non-taxation went hand in hand with non-representation? I argue that early modern rulers who had access to what I conceptualize as ‘proprietary revenue’—including profits from landownership, natural resource extraction, state-owned enterprise, and colonial plunder—could use such revenue to concentrate political authority in their own hands and rule as autocrats.

    Sammanfattning : Political oaths were widespread in medieval times, but all over Europe their use dwindled in the early modern period, resulting in the institution being dismantled in many states. In previous research, this decay has been explained by pointing to the emergence of the state in this period, through processes such as bureaucratization, nationalization, and confessionalization, and, later, secularization.
