Support for free markets remains high among Swedes

Economic Affairs article featured in Swedish media

An article analysing attitudes towards capitalism in 34 countries published in Economic Affairs has been featured in Swedish publication Dagens Arena.

The article (translated) reads:

“Sweden is one of the few countries that has a positive view of a market economy. This is shown by a new survey on attitudes toward capitalism in 34 countries around the world.

“The study, published in the scientific journal Economic Affairs, is based on a number of questions about a market economy and capitalism that were posed to people in 34 countries in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Only in seven of these countries did people have a positive view of what the study calls “economic freedom.” Sweden was one of these countries.”
