According to the CEO of the Swedish public pension fund, the focus should be on understanding and communicating the short-term nature of the measures being implemented across the world, to mitigate long term economic risks.

To avoid a deep recession, the CEO of AP3 suggests that the best course of action is to identify the measures that are most relevant to limiting the burden on healthcare and with the least negative consequences for the public and the world economy.

“We must soon put an end to the actual disaster we are in, which is even worse than the potential that we are trying to avoid,” she concludes.
