totally agree, my recent experience going to state owned tändlakare - paid 2300 sek for one tooth filling,done in 20 min., was a simple one by the way no painkillers was needed during visit.
Few asylum seekers also was waiting, I believe they pay only 50sek per visit regardless condition. At SFI majority learners are asylum seekers also, when I was attending only 2 persons out of 30 circa was not applying for asylum, and many of them attending SFI for 5 years plus, while getting paid for their accomodation, free bus rides, food and cash benefits , heavily discounted healthcare etc.
still waiting to see any off them to create added value...

Funny, I paid 800kr for a filling at Folktandvården with a painkilling injection.

I sometimes wonder if people on this forum live in the same Sweden that I do.

Not all private housing associations are more expensive. The thing with private housing associations are they are generally more in line with market rates.

The reason why people can't rent out their first hand apartments is to help people get apartments. If someone doesn't need the apartment they should give it up so someone in the queue can take it. Why should people be able to have an apartment and rent it out?

Kommunal housing is like council houses in the UK except the housing arm of councils were turned into private companies. However the rents are controlled to a certain extent so they can't just increase to match the market demand.

The Moderates want to take away the rent control to enable the rents to reflect the market. They also want to make it legal for people to buy apartments to rent them out (buy to rent) which is one of the things that has screwed the UK housing market because it has turned housing into a business instead of a places to live.

People new to Sweden complain about the situation but it is for the good of the population who live here, as it should be. There are plenty of places people can go to get a 1st hand contract with little or no waiting time and they are generally 500kr a month more than a comparable kommunal housing flat.

The question is if there wasn't a housing queue how would the companies decide who should get an apartment? Racial profiling? How much money they have in the bank? The fairest way is a seniority based queue.

As someone living in sweden for long time now. I must tell you sweden is a trap. They look great on the surface because they have all the international media and their own news outlets on their side. Try to find any real information in English about the actually situation of the rental market is almost impossible but of course you will find videos with 500k views on youtube about how sweden is the best country on earth all of them in English to make sure everybody can see them.

Sweden has a very obedient society who will cooperate and even lie if necessary about the actual situation. I have met swedes and when I ask them they smile and blame immigrants for the lack of housing. They smile because they know what their system is all about. They know their jobs and lives are secured because the system will do its job in beating the foreigner in the most elaborated trap on earth.

Are you french?. well I am Spanish and in my country we don't work for the system, we don't hide our problems and let me tell you I am pretty sure no other country in Europe is so passively harsh as sweden is. Problems in France and Spain and the rest of European countries are visible while in sweden and rest of scandinavian countries they just keep it quiet and thanks to their own conformist society they will just pretend nothing is happening.

When I tell swedes how bad the rental market is in sweden they smile because they know it's made like that on purpose. It's the perfect system to let people in and then get rid of competition. They use their language as a tool to prevent foreigners from getting any jobs despite swedes speak fluent English and they even falsely advertise that with English is enough to find a job when it's not true. And then the rental market is the final strike so unless you buy you will end burned out and broke.

In Spain bad things happen, many of them I don't feel proud of but in sweden... this is a cult not a country that's why so many foreigners hate sweden. Because it takes very little effort to see it's al marketing and a farce and to be honest the dark way the hide things from the rest of the world.

I guess greta thunberg will solve the rental market right?. Oh wait no she will not because, she works for the rich to control the population by using a 16 year old girl as a shield.

The problem I see with her is that she is using panic and fear to take control of the youth and in some aspects it seems to be working. Just wonder who is behind financing all this marketing?.

It's a farce because if sweden actually had anything to fix the problem they wouldn't need to hide behind a girl. Tha speaks a lot about their moral values

Greta Thunberg has more to do with mental health and development disabilities than the environment.

A pawn whichever way you look.

“Save the planet” is nothing new.
