It is hardly an exaggeration to say that Sweden is euphoric after defeating archrival Finland in the hockey finals
in yesterday's final in the Winter Olympics. Swedes won 6 other gold medals in the Olympics but for most Swedes the hockey gold is better than all the rest. It would be inaccurate to describe me as a Swedish nationalist, but I was still happy about this victory.
But while the Swedes beat Finland in hockey, the Finns beat Sweden in economics. During the latest year, employment rose by 2.3% in Finland
, while employment growth in Sweden was a mere 0.5%
