A military power during the 17th century, Sweden has not participated in any war for two centuries. An armed neutrality was preserved in both world wars. Sweden's long-successful economic formula of a capitalist system intermixed with substantial welfare elements was challenged in the 1990s by high unemployment and in 2000-02 and 2009 by the global economic downturns, but fiscal discipline over the past several years has allowed the country to weather economic vagaries. Sweden joined the EU in 1995, but the public rejected the introduction of the euro in a 2003 referendum.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Growth will remain strong as global demand and a weaker krona continue to boost exports. Exporting sectors will invest further to meet rising demand, but housing investment will contract against the backdrop of house price declines. The labour force will expand more slowly and unemployment will level off, as difficult-to-hire low-skilled workers make up a rising share of jobseekers. Households will remain cautious, with the saving rate staying high.

Both fiscal and monetary policies are expansionary during a strong upturn, and risk amplifying the business cycle. Expansionary monetary policy has succeeded in bringing inflation close to 2% and expectations are well-anchored. The Riksbank is projected to begin withdrawing monetary stimulus towards the end of 2018, which is needed to balance inflation risks against those of resource misallocation and financial imbalances, notably connected to property prices. Reforms aimed at improving the functioning of the housing market are also needed.
