As I predicted . . .

. . . back in early May. Here are the year-over-year growth rates for 2020:Q2:

Norway: Minus 5.3%
Finland: Minus 6.4%
Sweden: Minus 7.7%
Denmark: Minus 7.8%

It was never about lives vs. the economy. If people don’t want to go out and spend, you can’t stop them.

PS. The bigger European countries did worse than Sweden, but the other Nordic countries are probably the best comparison.
