Stock Market in Finland
Finland - Stock MarketEconomic growth accelerated in the fourth quarter of last year compared to the previous quarter, boosted by higher private consumption and a turnaround in fixed investment. Private consumption benefited from a tightening labor market, as reflected by the unemployment rate falling to its lowest level in a decade in December. On the other hand, government consumption declined and the external sector detracted from growth. Turning to this year, the unemployment rate fell again in January, hitting the lowest level since July 2008. Meanwhile, on the political front, the current coalition parties are lagging in the polls as the general election, scheduled for 14 April, edges nearer; opposition parties more open to loosening the public purse strings appear to be in the ascendancy.
