A report from the Kulturinstitutet (The National Institute of Economic Research) shows that the government’s decision to inject a total of 20 billion kroner (240,000 Euro) in temporary grants to the municipalities led to an increase in local government spending in 2010. At the level of the entire economy the temporary grants are estimated to have saved almost 9,500 jobs in 2010 and 4,000 jobs in 2011.
