The Stockholm School existed between the years 1927 and 1937 as a separate and distinctive school of economics. The School was given its name by Ohlin in his review of the General Theory (see Ohlin 1937). A ‘School’ is here defined as an interrelated development of a common theme among its members, who included Myrdal, Lindahl, Hammarskjöld, Ohlin and Lundberg. The common theme is the development of dynamic methods, which refer to notions such as temporary equilibrium and intertemporal equilibrium.
