Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There has been a general movement for deregulation and privatization in Sweden for the last 20 years. This has had certain positive effects (deregulation and privatization of telecoms and schools) and certain negative effects (deregulation of power market and railroads), of which neither have been earth-shattering nor system-changing. The entry of the populist right has indeed stopped some of the planned privatizations, which has been both bad and good, as some of those companies should really have been sold (Nordea, SBAB), while others absolutely should not (Vattenfall, except the foreign assets).

It's not a black and white picture.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
