Households Pessismistic About Economy

A new survey indicates that Swedish households have lost some of their optimism about the future.

The Skop institute talked to 1000 people here between the ages of 18 and 84. Nearly one-third expect the economic situation to worsen during the coming year. That’s the most pessimistic results since June last year.

The politics of those surveyed show a difference. Those who voted for the Social Democrat and Left parties are more pessimistic than those who voted for the new center-right government.
