New Friday, new krisepakke. The Norwegian economy shaken by both national and international korona-effects, and the needs for economic measures looking not yet seem to have no end.
Fortunately, we have economic freedom. This is the scope we use now, says finance minister Jan Tore Sanner (H).
the Government is now opening for the Nav should be able to anticipate the payment of unemployment benefits. Thus can the unemployed get the money quickly into your account without having to wait for the application will be processed.

The economic prospects worsened
the Ministry of finance came in today with updated forecasts for the Norwegian economy. The new assays are gloomier than the previous ones.
Now estimates the ministry that Mainland GDP could fall 2 percent this year. It is one percentage point lower than the ministry estimated a week ago.
Although the estimates are very uncertain, and there is no doubt that the Norwegian economy is hit hard. It underscores the importance that we in a short time have put in place powerful economic measures, says economy minister Sanner.
He says that the economic measures so far announced will pump a total of 310 billion into the Norwegian economy. And it is before the 20-40 billion to cover part of their fixed costs in the next two months (the measure was launched in the day).

Part of the money, the state will after all choose to get back again, and with that a part of the billion granted as loans and deferred tax and not as grants.
– Everyone must contribute
During the press conference were prime minister Erna Solberg clear that it is not provided that the state shall compensate all the fixed expenses of the companies. And she came with a clear call to the homeowners.
– There is no reason that the state should compensate all the rent, so that those renting out receive this directly. Here, we believe that everyone must contribute. The parliament must now be concerned that this not only becomes a overføringsordning to those who are the biggest landlords in the Uk, but that we all contribute. At the same time, there are many landlords that do it already by the fact that they say that they have gone down 20 to 30 per cent in rent, in a period of time.
Owners of shopping centres, the notifications on Friday that they will provide between 10 and 30 per cent husleierrabatt to tenants who were affected by the koronakrisen, including the Olav Thon Group, Norgesgruppen Property and Reitan Eiendom.
Rødts leader Bjørnar Moxnes is keen to set tough requirements to the home owners in this situation.
– If we do not impose requirements about to get halved husleia with the major players, billions of skattekroner go straight into their account. It is a completely pointless use of money that should have gone to help businesses that are in a major crisis.
– But the signals is that they have to take part?
– It is a great thought, but better than the signals are clear demands from the Parliament. Pious wishes will not work.
