Spektakulära resultat, skriver The Economist om Sverige de senaste åren och hyllar Alliansen och dess ekonomiska politik.

”ANNUAL growth as high as 6.4% in the first quarter. Unemployment falling fast. The budget in surplus this year. Public debt heading to below 40% of GDP. How did the Swedes do it?

Luck, partly. Like Germany, Sweden is a big manufacturing exporter. In both countries GDP rebounded in 2010 after a sharp fall in 2009. Being outside the euro helped, because the krona fell before climbing back. But the main answer is the prudent pro-market policies of Fredrik Reinfeldt’s four-party centre-right coalition, which came to power in October 2006.”

Hela artikel är som ren reklam för regeringen Reinfeldt, faktiskt. Det är till Sverige Europas politiker vänder sig för inspiration, menar man.

Håkan Juholt klarar sig inte lika bra i artikeln, ska tilläggas. ”A lacklustre new Social Democratic leader, Hakan Juholt, has inspired neither the voters nor his party.” Så kan det gå.
