Sweden Defeated Finland-But Only in Hockey

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%.
