The OECD Economic Outlook is the OECD's twice-yearly analysis of the major economic trends and prospects for the next two years. The Outlook puts forward a consistent set of projections for output, employment, prices, fiscal and current account balances.

Coverage is provided for all OECD member countries as well as for selected non-member countries. This issue includes a general assessment, a special chapter on the implications for public policy of the decoupling of wages from productivity and a chapter summarising developments and providing projections for each individual country.

The Statistical Annex is available on-line only at https://dx.doi.org/10.1787/eco_outlook-v22018-2-en

Sweden

Strong exports, reflecting both growth among Sweden’s main trading partners and a weaker krona, along with solid domestic demand, will continue to support the expansion. Housing investment will keep declining, following earlier house price falls. Employment creation will slow, with labour shortages in a number of occupations. The unemployment rate will level off as difficult-to-hire workers make up a rising proportion of jobseekers.
