Here in Norway have the shut-down of the economy already led to massearbeidsledighet and crisis measures from the government, and many business leaders see negative in the future.

Professor Ola Grytten at the Norwegian School of economics has done research on the historical economic crises. He believes that we don’t get a replay of the hard 30-years.

– In the 1930s we had a depression, then fell in both industry value added and prices, and it becomes self-perpetuating. When prices fall, exposes companies investments and people are postponing consumption and purchases, and thus enters it even worse, says professor Ola Grytten.

It is likely that we will experience this time is a recession, then, production will fall over time, ” says Ola Grytten.

NHH-the professor sees few signs of a fall in prices ahead, but he believes that the authorities the world over need to take a number of steps. Grytten points out that the authorities in the long run not only can implement measures that compensate for a shut down economy.

– Authorities the world over must begin to inspire the business world to get production in food and nødvendighetsgoder, says Grytten.

The great uncertainty about the future makes that those with high debt, will save and increase savings,which in the next round and reduces the demand, ” says chief economist Elisabeth Holvik in the Sparebank1 group.

– We are left with a gullskje in the mouth because of its oil wealth, moreover, it appears that koronapandemien are milder in Norway than in many other countries, says Grytten.

But no matter: everything stands and falls on how long the crisis lasts, the opinion of economists NRK have talked with. The losses are greater the longer the time the economy is shut down.

– no Matter who bears the costs of this now, so this will be something that everyone will notice and everyone must stay again and tighten their belts. This makes that I’m worried that it will take time to get out of this, ” says chief economist Kari Due-Andresen at Handelsbanken
