Swedes More Pessimistic About Economy

An increasing number of Swedes believe that the country's economy will weaken in 2008, according to a new poll. In the poll, taken by Skop, 33.1 percent of people questioned said they thought the economic situation would worsen during the year, up from 30.7 percent in October.

Only 22.4 percent of those polled said that they thought the economy would improve this year, a fall of 5.7 percentage points since October. [...] "Pessimism is deeper than it has been for two-and-a-half years," said Skop analyst Örjan Hultåker.
