Reform capacity and macroeconomic performance in the Nordic countries
Oxford University Press 2015 First edition.EISBN 9780191785740
The outbreak of the financial crisis in 2008 has had significant effects on economic activity, unemployment, and public finances for all European countries. However, European economies do not form a homogenous region, and any serious analysis of macroeconomic imbalances in Europe must account for the fact that different economic and political models and circumstances operate across the continent. This book focuses on the Nordic countries which have a relatively good record of undertaking fiscal and structural reforms after their own financial and debt crises in the 1980s and 1990s.
