Executive summary

Norway’s new government has taken over responsibility for a prosperous, well-managed economy, where people are generally happy – indicators of both material and non-material welfare are at high levels. Intelligent use of wealth from petroleum resources and active use of monetary policy within the flexible inflation-targeting framework have insulated Norway from the worst of the financial crisis-induced recession and supported the recovery. There are challenges in a number of areas, which are taken up in this Survey.
