Solid finances more important than debt
The debt of households poses no immediate threat to financial stability, four Professors from SSE state in a report from the Centre for Business and Policy Studies (SNS).
The report “Den Svenska Skulden” was presented at a press meeting on January 15. The conclusions are that the Swedish household debt pose no immediate threat to financial stability. But action is needed to make the system more robust against interference and make lending markets work better for households and businesses.
