VIANA, ALEXANDRE GUEDES  e  CUNHA, PATRÍCIA HELENA F.. The Swedish model: an alternative to macroeconomic policy. Rev. Econ. Polit. [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.2, pp.266-285. ISSN 1809-4538.

This paper describes the main details of the Swedish economic model, which began to be structured on the 1930s and achieved its consolidation on the 1950s. The Swedish model is characterized by a macroeconomic policy which provides price stability, fiscal results for selective industrial policies and social active policies, the latter being recognized as a wide universal welfare state. This combination, which contradicts the traditional economic prescriptions, has been successful given the country was agrarian and underdeveloped until the of 20th century and achieved a high social-economic development level on the 1970s. Afterwards, we present the Swedish experiment as an alternative to macroeconomic management, especially due to its uniqueness.
