SNS/SHoF Finance panel: Why is the Swedish Krona so weak?
There is currently an intense debate about the value of the Swedish krona. Against this background, we invited you to a seminar on the weakening of the krona.
Among the questions that have been raised are:
- Is the krona too weak?
- What factors may have contributed to the weakening of the krona, and is there empirical support for some factors being more important than others?
- How does the weak krona affect the Swedish economy?
- How should the Riksbank act?
- Is it beneficial for the Swedish economy to have its own currency?
Erik Thedéen is the Governor of Sveriges Riksbank
Kristin Magnusson Bernard is the CEO of Första AP-fonden (AP1)
Per Krusell is a professor of economics at the Institute for International Economic Studies at Stockholm University. He is one of the researchers who, at the request of the Swedish Parliament´s Committee on Finance (Finansutskottet), evaluated the monetary policy for 2022.
The seminar was held in Swedish and moderated by Pehr Wissén, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Practice, Swedish House of Finance.
