Disproof

Although there had been a slight decline in Finland's GDP after 1991, this was followed by a much longer period of stable growth and currently, Finland's GDP is approximately 100-150 per cent higher than it used to be in the beginning of the 1990s: see the historical data here. "Collapsed" Sweden has 22nd-23rd highest GDP in the world (depending on whether the ranking is by IMF, World Bank, or the UN).
