Executive Summary
Swedish economy stands out –but not for long
The global economy continues to diverge, with the US as an engine and emerging markets as a brake.Risks have risen significantly: a Chinese slowdown, threats of European deflation and Russia's geopolitical expansion.The Swedish economy will slow in 2015 when households come under pressure from higher interest expenses.High unemployment and a growing share of long-term unemployed are the main structural challenges in the medium term. Furthermore, we expect fiscal policy to become tighter, which will add to the strains on household budgets when interest rates start to rise.The Baltic economies will show positive growth rates, but nevertheless be negatively affected by less trade, deteriorating confidence and dampened investments due to the Russia crisis.
