INCOME INEQUALITY IN SWEDEN PRE AND POST THE 1990’S BANK CRISIS The aim of this thesis is to see if Sweden has had an increasing income inequality during the financial crisis in the 1990’s. The economy was in a deep recession after the booming years in the late 1980’s. A recession in Sweden’s case meant that the labourmarket was severely hit;the unemployment rate rose and income inequality as a result of this is expected to have increased. The main focus will be on the effect of income inequality between man and women as well as between natives and foreigners. Have these groups been effected by the crisis? If so, what may be the reason?Was it purely due to the crisis or was it due to other factors? The result showed that the income gap between men and women actually decreased during the financial crisis while on the other hand it increased between natives and foreigners.
