Hide / Show Abstract

Switzerland is still a prosperous country, but it is stuck in a low-growth trap and faces growing fiscal policy problems. While economic activity is affected to some extent by unfavourable conditions in Europe, low trend growth has structural roots. Indeed, growth of production and per capita income has been among the lowest in the OECD for many years, largely reflecting weak productivity gains.
