How to build a sustainable welfare state, Nordic design

Several conditions for the long-term stability of the welfare state are necessary:

  • Basic welfare (economic security and welfare services) have to be guaranteed for the overwhelming majority of the population.
  • Lower- and middle-income voters have to be convinced of the benefits have to be convinced that this policy is in their interest.
  • MPs must vote in accordance with the preferences of their voters.

Swedish political history in recent decades will be analysed against the backdrop of this list of requirements.
