New Ekonomistas post: “Nya data om hushållens skulder” (“New data about Swedish household debt,” in Swedish). A comment on the recently published report of the Government Commission of Inquiry on Overindebtedness (unfortunately only available in Swedish). Using new detailed data, the Commission confirms previous results on more aggregated and partial data. The Commission concludes:
The large loans mostly belong to groups that can be expected to have better conditions for handling large loans, such as those with high incomes and high education.
The largest loans are strongly concentrated to households with the highest incomes.
