Summary: Three models of economic policymaking--the politics of bargaining, the politics of expertise, and the politics of purpose--can explain why Swedish governments made low inflation the primary objective of macroeconomic policy ten to fifteen years later than most other advanced democracies. Major economic policy shifts are caused by the disintegration of established norms regarding the purpose of political authority.

They gave up its defense only after the norms of Sweden's political culture changed in the late 1980s.
