Sweden’s “Lighter touch” Approach – A Cautionary Tale or A Candid Lesson?
Is socially responsible capitalism the best antidote against pandemics ? What can we learn from Sweden’s response to the Covid 19?
Sweden’s “lighter touch” approach to the Covid-19 surprised the World, not only by its uniqueness but also by its effectiveness. While many factors may be at play here, Sweden’s response to the public health crisis and its immediate economic consequences raise the question as to whether socially responsible capitalism is the best “societal” antidote against pandemics.
In this interactive seminar, Michael Bucher explores the institutions and governance structures that not only enabled but shaped Sweden’s management of the COVID 19 health crisis.
