Author/Editor: Lachman, Desmond | Bennett, Adam | Green, J. H. | Hagemann, Robert P. | Ramaswamy, Ramana
Published: October 6, 1995

Summary: Sweden's economy in the early 1990s has been characterized by a deep recession, high unemployment, a ballooning public sector budget deficit, and a decline in the value of the currency - developments that have raised questions about the country's capacity to sustain its comprehensive welfare state. This study provides an analysis of recent economic developments in a longer-term context and assesses their implications for future policies.
