Labour Markets in Finland and Sweden:
A Swedish Perspective
Per Skedinger

Labour market institutions in Finland and Sweden have many features in common. The many similarities have inspired a joint Finnish-Swedish research project on the effects of these institutions. Finland has experienced a prolonged economic downturn and Sweden’s system of wage bargaining has been suggested as a model for Finland. Aggregate wage formation has worked well in Sweden, but relative wage formation markedly less so and the effects of local bargaining are not clear.
