Let’s stop pretending that Bernie Sanders wants to duplicate Scandinavia
Bernie Sanders supporters are quick to make clear that their guy doesn’t want to turn America into Cuba or Venezuela or the old Soviet Union. By "democratic socialism," the US senator from Vermont means Scandinavia, more or less. And what’s wrong with that? The Nordic nations are pretty nice. Even President Trump has conceded that Norway produces a quality immigrant.
His point is that the scandinavian countries are in many aspects more capitalist and have higher economic freedom than the US, citing my text in the Milken Review.
