Swedish model is doing well
This article argues that the economic crisis in Sweden was not caused by the large and generous welfare state, but rather by market-liberal economic reforms. Today the model is still doing relatively well and it still has the support of the population. Although the literature on 'retrenchment' focuses on social benefits, in Sweden cutbacks in this area were rather mild. Instead, the main cutbacks were actually in the quality of welfare services, which remains the greatest problem for Sweden.
