The early days of VATT: Welfare state assessment during the great Finnish depression and the Nokia boom years

Reino Hjerppe was the first Director General of the VATT Institute for Economic Research. He led the institute for sixteen years from the worst years of the great Finnish depression in the 1990’s, through the EU membership discussions to the boom years of Nokia. These were also years of fast-paced development in Finnish applied empirical economic research. “Education and know-how are the key to a nation’s success”, VATT's first Director General says now.
