SEB: Nordic Outlook: Kortsiktig lättnad men långsiktiga risker21.1.2020 07:00:00 CETPressemelding

Pressmeddelande Stockholm 21 januari 2020 Nordic Outlook: Kortsiktig lättnad men långsiktiga risker Sverige: Tillväxt under trend – stigande arbetslöshet och räntepaus Världsekonomin ser ut att ha stått emot fjolårets industrisvacka. Tillväxten växlar upp försiktigt men kvarstående politisk osäkerhet och utbudsrestriktioner dämpar kraften i uppgången. Central­bankssignaler om låga räntor under lång tid ger stöd men reser också frågor kring långsiktiga risker med skulduppbyggnad och upptrissade tillgångspriser. Finanspolitiken kan spela en ökad roll men stela ramverk och svaga statsfinanser gör att stimulansdosen ändå blir försiktig. I Sverige tyder sentimentsindikatorer på svag eller t o m fallande BNP i slutet av 2019 och början av 2020. Åter­hämtning för hushållens konsumtion och vändning för bostadsbyggandet talar dock för att BNP fortsätter växa under 2020. Tillväxten stärks 2021 när Sverige följer med internationell konjunktur uppåt. Fortsatt stark befolkningstillväxt bidrar till
