The Peterson Institute for International Economics releases an article on the economic recovery of Sweden after its deep financial and real estate crisis back in 1991.
Simple lessons to take: simplification of the tax code that it only takes an automatic telephone confirmation by 2/3 of the Swedes that declaration prepared for them is correct! It cut marginal tax rates! It went through structural reforms one after another! It reformed the social insurance system so that not only it is sustainable but also to provide for everyone!
And most important: no matter which political party was in the government, reforms continued no matter what under an “intellectual consensus”.
Well, maybe we should have our ears open and try to learn more than just arguing on TV channels!
