Globalization and the Swedish Labor Market

University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

Abstract: Globalization is a widespread phenomenon that is having a strong influence on the modern society, creating both threats and opportunities. One of the most affected areas by the global pressures is the labor market, which requires specific policies and tools to respond to the increasing challenges. It is thus the task of the modern welfare states, to intervene in the attempt of transforming the global effects in opportunities rather than threats. The work analyzes the relationship between globalization and labor market, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. The Swedish labor market is analyzed in detail, underlining both its strengths and weaknesses deriving from globalization and suggesting some solutions to improve the results.
