A Balanced View

As I head off to Geneva for a couple of days, I note that The Economist has made its judgment on Sweden and our election campaign.

The Social Democrats are fond of saying that all the world is envious of everything that Sweden is.

That's a wild exaggeration, and The Economist presents a far more balanced picture, pointing out the obvious and glaring shortcomings, and effectively calling for some profound reforms.

Well worth reading.
