Though a small company with 200 workers, Brown Boveri began producing for exports from the beginning. The key to success lay with the founders themselves, especially Brown’s engineering talent. He succeeded in transforming low-voltage electricity into high-voltage power and transporting it as early as the late 1880s. This was the last word in turn-of-thecentury technology. Switzerland, lacking coal resources, began exploiting its rich water resources and initiated the widespread construction of hydroelectric power stations.

Before the war, more than one-third (and in some cases such as Norway and Britain around 50%) of the active population worked in services, mostly in trade, transportation, banking, and personal service branches, which produced 30–45% of the gross domestic product (GDP) in Western Europe. Indeed, the continent’s economy reached a zenith: between 1900 and 1913 European GDP increased by an impressive 27%. By the early twentieth century, the Western European countries essentially ruled the world and forged ahead along their chosen path toward economic progress.

Between 1891 and 1900, 38% of Swedish exports consisted of unprocessed wood and 8% of pulp and paper; by 1911– 1913, the share of wood exports dropped to 26%, while pulp and paper increased to 18% (Fridlizius, 1963). Between 1896 and 1912, the Swedish pulp and paper industry, an export sector par excellence with 75–80% of its production exported, increased its output by 11% annually and became the most dynamic branch of industry. From the 1890s, the Swedish iron and steel industry had recovered sufficiently from the shock of the British industrial revolution to be able to renew itself according to the newer technology of the Siemens-Martin process.
