Thoughts on economics and liberty

Anders Tegnell is leading Sweden to a REAL SOLUTION. Others are DESTROYING their nations.

The more I find about this man, the more impressed I am. This is a placeholder post.

If time permits I’ll write an article on Sweden’s approach this long weekend.

I’ll also try to combine Tegnell’s videos – done; this one below

NOTE: This post should be read together with this one on Sweden’s approach.



Tegnell Anders’s CV



Sweden’s chief epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, has denied the country’s approach is to rapidly build group immunity to the virus, a tactic seemingly pursued in Britain and the Netherlands until both recently changed tack after warnings that their health systems could be overwhelmed and death tolls would soar.

But Tegnell conceded to the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper last week that such an objective was “not contradictory” with what he described as the government’s core strategy, which was to ensure “a slow spread of infection, and that the health services have a reasonable workload”.

On Sunday night, Tegnell told Swedish TV the outbreak would “calm down” in May but return in the autumn. “It will be important how much of the population is infected,” he said. “It will determine what happens in the autumn.” Coronavirus could be stopped either by “herd immunity, or a combination of immunity and vaccination”, he said. “It’s basically the same thing.” [Source]


When confronted with Nakstad’s quotes at a press conference on Wednesday, Sweden’s state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said that Sweden’s strategy had been misrepresented.
“I don’t recognise it. We have never wanted to have many sick people at the same time, but quite the opposite. We have never had that idea,” he said according to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
He recognised, however, that Norway’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus had been very successful.
“The curve is significantly down there, much better than the curve looks in Denmark, for example,” he said. “But it will be extremely interesting to see what happens when they relax it all. That’s what all countries are worried about. How do we get out of here when we have closed down the whole of society?”. [Source]

State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell at Sweden’s Public Health Agency told reporters he did not believe Sweden was suffering any more than any other country.

“No, we don’t share his opinion,” said Tegnell. “Of course we’re suffering. Everybody in the world is suffering right now, in different ways. But Swedish healthcare, which I guess he alludes to, it’s very difficult to understand, is taking care of this in a very, very good manner.

“It’s a lot of work, it’s a lot of stress for the personnel and it’s really a fight for them every day, but it’s working and the Swedish healthcare is delivering results just as good as they have ever done. The Swedish healthcare is one of the best in the world and it continues to be like that.” [Source]

The prospect of inflationary expectations as lockdowns continue

In recent days I’m coming to the view that governments are driven by a political imperative to value all lives equally, and will NOT change tack till their societies almost collapse – which can take 4-5 months at the least. In the meanwhile things can get worse on the debt front.

This is a post to keep track of this issue, particularly the views of others – for ultimately, the market can turn rapidly (as we saw with the crash in stock prices a month ago).
