Sweden Isn’t Socialist

Click here: For years, I’ve heard American leftists say Sweden is proof that socialism works, that it doesn’t have to turn out as badly as the Soviet Union or Cuba or Venezuela did.

But that’s not what Swedish historian Johan Norberg says in a new documentary and Stossel TV video.

“Sweden is not socialist — because the government doesn’t own the means of production. To see that, you have to go to Venezuela or Cuba or North Korea,” says Norberg.

“We did have a period in the 1970s and 1980s when we had something that resembled socialism: a big government that taxed and spent heavily. And that’s the period in Swedish history when our economy was going south.”

Many people think Sweden is socialist, but its success comes from free markets. John Stossel explains in this short 5-minute video.

Amnesty would put more U.S.-born children of illegal aliens — commonly known as “anchor babies” — on federal welfare, while American taxpayers would be left with a $26 billion bill.
