Breakdown 1979

The Swedish economy is in free fall, if you believe the latest report from the National Institute of Economic Research. [They] expect GNP to fall 3,9 percent this year. … In the industrial sector, every sixth job will disappear.*

The National Institute of Economic Research calculates that it could take until 2016 before unemployment will decline from the expected peak of 11 percent to a more normal level of six percent.*

The People’s Party’s spokesman for economic policy, Carl B Hamilton, says “No thanks” to a expansive fiscal policy. … Hamilton compares the situation with the seventies, when the rightwing government didn’t get anywhere with that kind of policies.*

It’s always 1979 with these people. That’s when the modern right (and center-right) was formed, and everything will always be seen through that lens.
