Viking Economics : How the Scandinavians Got It Right, And How We Can, Too

Author(s): George Lakey

History, Politics and Society | Business and Economics

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. a In Viking Economics-perhaps the most fun economics book you've ever read-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, if we can enact some of the changes the Scandinavians fought for surprisingly recently, we, too, can embrace equality in our economic policy.
