NA/18 The Dutch economy, 1921-1939 and 1969-1985. A comparison based on revised macro-economic data for the interwar period

Den Bakker, G.P., T.A. Huitker and C.A. van Bochove (1987).A set of macro-economic time series for the Netherlands 1921-1939 is presented. The new series differ considerably from the data that had been published before. They are also more comprehensive, more detailed, and conceptually consistent with the modern National Accounts. The macro-economic developments that are shown by the new series are discussed. It turns out that the traditional economic-historical view of the Dutch economy has to be reversed.
