Abstract [en]

A cross-class alliance between organized labor and capital was agreed upon in the 1930s. The ultimate break came in 1990 with decentralized wage-bargaining. In the wake of threatening wage inflation and rising unemployment a new regime for collective bargaining emerged through pattern-setting at the end of the 90’s. So far it seems to have survived challenges from declining unionization, the growth of the service sector, shrinking unionized industrial working-class, and an open European labor market. The cross-class alliance seems to have cast its skin and emerged in a new modernized version. Sweden still seems to represent a typical coordinated market economy.
