The underpinnings of Sweden’s permissive COVID regime – VOX column

Charlotta Stern, corona, covid-19, Daniel Klein, Nils Karlson

Sweden has opted for a relatively permissive approach to the battle against Covid-19. What are the institutional and cultural reasons behind that strategy? In a VOX column this is discussed by Nils Karlson, Charlotta Stern and Daniel Klein, from the Ratio Insitute.

High trust – horizontal and vertical; long tradition of administrative independence; and a constitutional constraint and a respect for that constraint, are some of the variables that the Ratio researchers identify. Read the fulll column here.
