Swedish Interest Rate Fluctuations in an International Perspective

  • Lars Oxelheim


From this chapter onwards we will be looking at the extent to which foreign interest rate movements can explain the fluctuations in Swedish interest rates as identified in the previous chapter. The present chapter includes a description of the interest development on the world market and in Sweden. My purpose is to show how the size of the Swedish interest rate has deviated from the “global interest level”, and where possible to seek an explanation in underlying differences in policy. I shall take both the US interest level and a weighted average of the interest rates in the OECD countries as my “global interest level”.1
