The oil sector has pushed Norway’s standards of living higher and higher in the last two decades. In 2015, the country’s per capita GDP (PPP) is estimated at nearly US$68,000. The recent fall of oil prices, however, presents a challenge to the Norwegian economy. Norwegian authorities have plenty of tools to cope with it, including an independent monetary policy and a sound institutional and macroeconomic framework, but there is no doubt that Norway is now facing a more uncertain environment than it has in a long time.
