Bumblebee Nation – The hidden story of the new Swedish Model
Sweden’s economy has several distinctive features which, in resemblance to the bumblebee, should prevent it from flying. And yet, it actually flies better than most countries, all things considered. In this book economist journalist David Crouch has studied how Sweden’s economy works and how the new Swedish model has evolved. The welfare system, the role of the unions, paternity leave, the role of women in the labor market and immigration are some of the topics covered. The book is based on interviews with a large number of business leaders and decision makers, who all have played an active role in the Swedish bumlebee’s successful flight.
“David Crouch provides a great guide to the much-cited but little examined Swedish model – especially how it has evolved over time and the challenges it now faces.”
