What is the samhällsanalytikern Nima Sanandaji, managing director of the think-tank, the European Centre for Entrepreneurship, and Policy Reform, which produced the report on behalf of a private equity firm, Nordic Capital. By examining the 31 european countries and he has, for the third time (the first of these reports, in 2017, respectively in 2018) compiled the frequency of occurrence of knowledge-intensive jobs in the targeted countries. Switzerland is still on the throne when it comes to the percentage of the population is of working age, who are working with knowledge-intensive jobs, with Sweden hot on their heels.
combining a high level of expertise and creativity, for example, the company specialized in the research and development activities. The jobs have been divided into twelve sub-categories, which are divided into four överkategorier: on Creative professions, Advanced services, Tech, and information and communication technologies.
the Report's author Nima Sanandaji points out several elements of Sweden's success, among other things, a great knowledge base and a good reputation for entrepreneurship, which will receive investment capital from flowing out of the country.
in Addition, Sweden has a modern, skattelagsstiftning, which means that it creates a lot of value in start-up companies are able to invest the money in other enterprises, without the tax. They can be estimated, of course, where they will take the win, but before the spinning of the scheme, " says Nima Sanandaji.Nima Sanandaji. Photo credit: Picture
is on his way to catch up in Switzerland, according to the report, Sweden offers a wide range of skills. While most of the other european countries, has been an area of specialization, Switzerland, tech), Sweden stands out in each of the four categories. As the tech sector did not develop at the same rate as the rest of the three sectors, Sweden has a good chance to take over the throne from Switzerland, in the near future, traces the Nima Sanandaji.
" all Around the world, we are seeing the digitization and servicising. In addition, we can see that it is becoming more and more important, for example, to promote its brand in a highly competitive world, where those in the creative professions, is important. At the same time, moving the tech sector for the rest of the categories, because a lot of high-tech manufacturing is moving to China. This is the phase in the world economy finds itself in.
that stands out from the crowd. The fact is, that in Stockholm, the park was out of the 278 regions, that is, in the majority of countries, only the Bratislava and Oxford is the better of Sweden's capital city. But Stockholm is a long way from being the sole responsible for Sweden's high rate. Sweden is relatively alone, to have knowledge-intensive jobs dispersed throughout the country. However, Nima Sanandaji, raises a warning finger to the smaller regions are at risk to jump on the bandwagon. In such a case, according to the samhällsanalytikern, to a large extent, depend on the ability to fly home.
" On the whole, no. Because research and innovation are creating new jobs, this is basically the only positive contribution of the employment in the country. The only part I can think of that is negative is that housing prices tend to rise in a city with a lot of well-paying jobs. They are well-paid, knowledge-intensive jobs, is a factor contributing to the high housing market in Stockholm, sweden. < / span> < / span> < / span><
