In the new book Scandinavian Unexceptionalism: Culture, Markets and the Failure of Third-Way Socialism, academic Nima Sanandaji, Ph.D., makes an iron-clad case showing that the Nordic nations’ relative success predates the welfare state and that socialism didn’t lead to Scandanavia’s success, but rather its back-pedaling. by Alex Newman
