The weekend is around the corner and it is time to suggest some reading: I hope you have not missed this article in the International Herald Tribune: "The envy of Europe: Success of Nordic economies is turning heads
". The basic point is the one often missed in the Swedish debate: the Nordic economies are actually performing really well right now. Reading this article is a perfect way to end a week that included a new budget presented to the Swedish people, a budget that will make things better for a lot of ordinary Swedes, something you can read more about in the article "Metallare förlorar på borgerlig budget
". Now it is time for an after-work beer.
