Evaluations of Swedish labor market policy
AbstractSweden has for a long time spent large resources on labor market policies targeted to the unemployed. In the Anglo-Saxon labor economics literature new methods have been developed for the purpose of estimating the effects of such policies. This paper presents the new methods in this field and describes the main studies of Swedish labor market policies. The conclusion is that in spite of new methodological insight there remains much uncertainty about the effects of the Swedish policy experiment.
