This report touches upon the driving forces and the structural connections characterizing the development of the population, industry and trade, energy supply and the transportation system of the Swedish people. With the aid of statistical tables, charts and maps the changes during the past 200 years are shown, and a remark is made on the trends in the development in the preindustrial society, the industrial society and the highly productive consumptional society. There is a discussion on the distribution of people's industry and trade and the employment rate within the population today. The present energy system is described, as well as the present transportation system and mobility in general. Alternative future prospects, based on the present situation are presented. The author summarizes the future views in two alternatives. (1) specialization and economic growth, the use of nuclear energy - A concentrated Sweden. (2) diversification and resource saving, the use of renewable energy sources, such as the sun, the wind, water-power etc. - an outspread Sweden. Many of the developmental tendencies of today seem to indicate that Swedish society is heading towards alternative (1). (TRRL)
