How to Tackle A Financial Crisis: The Case of Sweden in the 1990s

Tuesday, September 9
3:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Scandinavia House
58 Park Avenue at 38th Street
New York City

The current financial crisis in the United States seems to bear important resemblance to the crisis of Sweden in the 1990s, which stemmed largely from credit expansion and a boom in housing. Both cases share the same central challenge: managing the credit problem and guaranteeing the stability of the financial system without jeopardizing the functioning of market mechanisms. Experiences and lessons learned from the successful policy response of Sweden may be very relevant to the emerging new financial landscape in the United States.

The Consulate General of Sweden and NASDAQ OMX present a seminar on September 9 to discuss government policy response to financial crises. Some key persons involved in resolving the Swedish crisis of the 1990s will share their experiences and, together with financial market experts from New York, attempt to shed light on options for policy action in the United States today. The confirmed keynote speaker will be Mr. Bo Lundgren, then Minister of Fiscal and Financial Affairs in the Swedish Government.
