Rise & Fall [Episode 4]: Let’s Talk About Sweden
Is Sweden really the socialist utopia that it is often portrayed as? Is it a socialist nightmare? It’s far away, it’s cold and for Americans, it’s a country surrounded by economic myths. Here’s the real story.
On this episode of Rise & Fall, you’ll hear commentary from Ayn Rand Institute in-house Swede and research associate Carl Svanberg, philosopher Ayn Rand and Don Watkins, director of education at the Center for Industrial Progress and former fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute.
