There's a big difference between asking people who want to move permanently to prove they will make a useful contribution before you give them permission, and wanting to increase short-term tourism."
What politicians claim to want is neither here nor there, the xenophobic 50% of the population who despise Polish construction workers or Indian doctors will be just as resentful towards tourists from "abroad".
I don't know if you all realise the preternatural nature of the forces behind this parlimentary ruling. Sweden is a consensus society, traditionaly, rules and regulations are debated endlessly by untold commitees until consensus is reached. Here we have a law that breaks the Swedish constitution and the EU human right laws, that is proposed, rejected, amended and passed in the space of 2 days, in the face of massive public critisism. Remember this, in years to come you will be able tell your grandchildren you where alive when the first cracks in the dike appeared.
