Sweden's Worst Challenges

Sweden has a number of challenges ahead as a modern and prosperous country. One of the most critical challenges is the economy, which is not growing (per capita) any more. This means that our ability to increase or even keep the current level of welfare is at stake. A growing population does not help as the immigrants cannot fast enough or at all find suitable jobs but have to live on allowances. A reduced welfare is thus what every Swede should expect unless we can make the economy start growing or drastically reduce costs in the welfare "industry" and other areas.

The Economy of the Swedish Municipalities and Their Challenges

The Swedish economy is up to a number of challenges. Many of them have their roots more than almost 50 years ago even though they are made worse by the current large immigration and the subsequent need to support a large portion of the population who is not working. In this blog we will discuss some of the challenges and we start with an interview of Hans Jensevik.
