     Introduction Norway
                              Background: Despite its neutrality, Norway was
                                          not able to avoid occupation by
                                          Germany in World War II. In 1949,
                                          neutrality was abandoned and Norway
                                          became a member of NATO. Discovery
                                          of oil and gas in adjacent waters in
                                          the late 1960s boosted Norway's
                                          economic fortunes. The current focus
                                          is on containing spending on the
                                          extensive welfare system and
                                          planning for the time when petroleum
                                          reserves are depleted. In referenda

     Economy Norway
                      Economy - overview: The Norwegian economy is a
                                          prosperous bastion of welfare
                                          capitalism, featuring a combination
                                          of free market activity and
                                          government intervention. The
                                          government controls key areas, such
                                          as the vital petroleum sector
                                          (through large-scale state
                                          enterprises). The country is richly
                                          endowed with natural resources -
                                          petroleum, hydropower, fish,
                                          forests, and minerals - and is
                                          highly dependent on its oil
                                          production and international oil
                                          prices; in 1999, oil and gas
                                          accounted for 35% of exports. Only
                                          Saudi Arabia and Russia export more
                                          oil than Norway. Oslo opted to stay
                                          out of the EU during a referendum in
                                          November 1994. Growth picked up in
                                          2000 to 2.7%, compared with the
                                          meager 0.8% of 1999, but fell back
                                          to 1.3% in 2001. The government
                                          moved ahead with privatization in
                                          2000, even proposing the sale of up
                                          to one-third of the 100% state-owned
                                          oil company Statoil. With arguably
                                          the highest quality of life
                                          worldwide, Norwegians still worry
                                          about that time in the next two
                                          decades when the oil and gas begin
                                          to run out. Accordingly, Norway has
                                          been saving its oil-boosted budget
                                          surpluses in a Government Petroleum
