The Heritage Foundation tracks the “Freedom Index” of many countries. Of late many talking heads refer to the success of Sweden as a Socialist country. The fact is that Sweden’s Freedom Index has climbed to 15th in the world compared to 18th for the United States. Click HERE to compare Sweden’s rise vs. the United States from 1995 to 2018.
The Heritage quantitative comparison helps explain the excellent Daily Signal article and it’s author John Stossel on Sweden’s rise. Stossel begins his article by saying; “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 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 North Korea” says Norberg.
