Product Market Reforms and Incentives to Innovate in Sweden
() and Magnus Henrekson
Abstract: The Swedish economy has developed rapidly since the
mid-1990s relative to most comparable countries, in particular relative to
almost all other EU-15 countries. We investigate two policy areas that are
believed to have been important for the strong economic development in
Sweden during the last two decades, namely product market reforms and
incentives to innovate. The paper provides a short description of the
policy changes that have taken place within these areas since the early
1990s and offers ideas for additional policy reforms that would pave the
way for continued successful economic development.
