During the history of the Riksbank, from 1668 to today, the annual inflation was on average 2.1-2.3 percent (the exact figure depends on how inflation is measured in relation to the monetary disorder during the second half of the 1710s). This can be compared to the present inflation target of the Riksbank at 2.0 percent.
Research at Sveriges Riksbank
The objective of economic research at the Riksbank is to provide a strong theoretical and empirical basis for policy-making. An important task of economic research is to provide models, tools and analyses for the fulfillment of the Riksbank’s objectives.
