Svensk arbetsmarknad under två kriser (The Swedish labor market in two recessions)

”Svensk arbetsmarknad tycks trotsa tyngdlagen.” Så uttalade sig finansminister Anders Borg i början av juli 2010. Han pekade på att det dramatiska fallet i BNP i finanskrisens spår inte hade åtföljts av någon dramatisk minskning av sysselsättningen. I denna uppsats ges en översiktlig skildring av hur svensk arbetsmarknad utvecklats under de senaste två decennierna. Anders Borgs karaktäristik av svensk arbetsmarknad under finanskrisen som ett exceptionellt undantag är knappast välgrundad om man jämför utvecklingen i Sverige med vad som hänt i andra länder. Men Anders Borg har rätt i att arbetslösheten under finanskrisen har ökat mindre än vad man skulle ha förväntat sig utifrån tidigare samband mellan BNP och arbetslöshet.
