Bernie likes to pretend he is a Democratic Socialist similar to Sweden. It’s not true.
Bernie likes to tout Scandinavia but Scandinavian businesses are mostly free from regulation, nationalization and protectionism. Denmark, for example, ranks higher than the US in business freedom, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, property freedom and freedom from corruption.
Sweden isn’t doing as well as the United States when it comes to prospering. If they were a state, they’d be the seventh poorest.
Scandinavia isn’t a terrible place to live but it’s no utopia. In any case, this isn’t the socialism Bernie is talking about.
