OECD's periodic survey of Finland's economy. This 2010 edition includes chapters on overcoming the crisis, sustainable public finances, coping with the jobs crisis and preparing for ageing, and rising inequalities. It finds that the crisis hit Finland harder than most other OECD countries, worsening the fiscal outlook. This calls for a stronger fiscal framework. Employment has held up relatively well, but rigidities in the labour market could complicate recovery.
Increasing inequalities challenge Finland's social model and may be aggravated by the crisis.
