In this report Andrews takes a specific look at whether Sweden has contributed to increased realism in poor country reform of â€™public finance managementâ€™ (PFM) over the last decades. What he labels as a â€™realistic approachâ€™ pertains to efforts at working in more iterative ways, putting local reformers in the forefront and applying a more practical approach to doing reform, rather than merely focus on its technical content.
