The purpose of this article is to present the Swedish RehnMeidner model of economic and wage policy, the reasons for its creation, its features, and the reasons for changes in Swedish economic policy decades later. This model, created by two Swedish economists in 1951, formed the basis of economic policy for decades to come.
