Viking Economics : How the Scandinavians Got It Right-And How We Can, Too
by George Lakey




Overview -
Liberals worldwide invoke Scandinavia as a promised land of equality, while most conservatives fear it as a hotbed of liberty-threatening socialism. But the left and right can usually agree on one thing: that the Nordic system is impossible to replicate elsewhere. The US and UK are too big, or too individualistic, or too . . . something.

In Viking Economics--now with a new afterword by the author--George Lakey dispels these myths. He explores the inner workings of the Nordic economies that boast the world's happiest, most productive workers, and explains how we can enact some of the changes--including universal healthcare, affordable childcare, and a month of paid vacation for all--that the Scandinavians fought for surprisingly recently. We, too, can refuse to be governed by the elites and embrace equality in our economic policy--here's how.
