"We attract the wrong kind of immigrants" said Dag Aarnes, an economist at the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprises, a trade body. "We're not particularly competitive in attracting skilled labour, particularly engineers." Norway's egalitarian wage distribution pays low-skilled workers well above the European average but pays the higher-skilled at, or even a touch below, international norms. The central bank predicts that wages will rise about twice as fast as GDP for several years to come while productivity improvements will trail economic growth. With a budget surplus worth 12 percent of GDP, Norway can afford just about anything now but unless it scales down benefits like neighbour Sweden did in the 1990s, that surplus will melt away. But generous benefits, a good work-life balance and limited wage inequality are long-standing parts of a social model cherished by many Norwegians, so any change will be difficult. "I think there is political understanding about all this so I'm fairly optimistic," Aarnes added.

November 6 - Bloomberg (Josiane Kremer): "Norway's biggest industry group warned the krone's 7.2% advance against the euro since July is eroding profits at manufacturers… 'Norwegian industries may have the worst time ahead of them," Dag Aarnes, senior economist at the Confederation of Norwegian Business and Industry, said…"

It's also one of the most aid dependent, according to Norwegian economist, Dag Aarnes. Aid accounts for more than 40 per cent of the Tanzania's budget, he says. Aarnes has been crunching numbers for the Norwegian and Swedish embassies' new 'Lakini project'.

...
Aarnes says even though the approach has been used for years it's not well understood."It's easy to tell a story about a new road or a new school.It's easy to relate to, but budget support is not easily explained." Aarnes is used to explaining and defending the concept, as the name of the Lakini project suggests.In Kiswahili, 'lakini' means 'but', as in, 'But what about corruption?Can we really leave it up to Tanzanian government to spend the money on schools, hospitals and reducing poverty?'Yes, according to Aarnes and other proponents of general budget support.
...
Norwegian economist, Dag Aarnes said at the launch. Aarnes says the scenario depends on steady economic growth, with the gross domestic product increasing by about 8 per cent a year. The Tanzanian government would also have to hit up its citizens for more taxes, Tanzania has very low tax revenues, Aarnes says.In his report, 'Lakini - Tanzania and the new development cooperation' he points to a large gap between revenues and expenditures, while tax revenues make up about 14 per cent of the country's gross domestic product, expenditures are about 28 per cent. Foreign aid is closing the gap. Taxes must be raised so they can take over from aid as financing, Aarnes says.A move that he acknowledges is not likely to be politically popular.
