Full speed towards an uncertain future
Today, Business Sweden publishes Market Insight for September 2017. The global economic recovery continues across all regions in the strongest rate since 2011. If optimism persists, growth can be even higher than expected.
- A strong global and investment boom raises the Swedish economy. In particular, the Swedish export industry benefits, which is pleasing. In Europe, the most acute political risks are under control. Population flows have had limited impact and there are good hopes for stronger cooperation in the EU. It is high time for policy to balance from monetary policy stimulus to fiscal policy and structural reforms for growth and employment. A decade of exceptionally low interest rates has distorted the world economy, says Business Sweden’s Chief Economist Lena Sellgren.
