The credit and housing boom in Sweden, 1995-2015: Forewarned is forearmed

Andersson, Fredrik N G LU and Jonung, Lars LU (2016)
Abstract (Swedish)
The volume of credit to Swedish households has grown twice as fast as incomes since the mid-1990s. This has resulted in both rising house prices and rising household debt. This column argues that these trends expose Sweden to important economic vulnerabilities. Curbing these vulnerabilities will require prompt action by the authorities.
