The expenditure ceiling – different roles in different times (RiR 2020:28)

The audit shows that the expenditure ceiling has been largely applied as intended by the Riksdag and that the ceiling had a disciplining effect on the expenditure growth. Furthermore, the audit shows that the role of the expenditure ceiling has varied over time, which can be explained by different economic starting points and the political preferences of different governments. The audit also included the Government’s follow-up of ceiling-restricted expenditure, which is deemed to be well-functioning.
