Previous Post

I just read this truly FASCINATING article about Sweden-

http://socialistworld.net/eng/2009/10/2601.html

and it seems that in the early 90's they went through what appears to be the same exact (or close enough) economic crisis we are experiencing today. It lasted for 6-10 years before they finally got back on track and part of the reason is they became more socialistic in nature.

They also started started exporting a lot of stuff but I don't see that happening for America as we don't really produce anything that others want anymore other than tobacco (we don't even make TV's).

Socialism has become a dirty word these days with all of the inane Obama hatred, but it seems to have served Sweden, the most democratic country in the world, pretty well...

Food for thought.

I couldn't even make it through the first paragraph. I'm not even sure what the point of the post was. What exactly are you advocating for? Are there political and economic ideas from Sweden that you think would be good for America?

Keep in mind that America and Sweden are vastly different countries with two very different cultures today.
