Recently the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) found that the Danish people rank among the happiest in the world among some 40 countries that were studied. America did not crack the top 10.
I think the scandinavian countries are doing something pretty cool and hopefully it works out. Governments should guarantee their people a decent way of life as a minimum standard. I think it’s a solid theory and goal to work towards, constantly tweaking it along the way to keep improving and adapting to whatever the situation is.
Counter-point saying Denmark’s system may be unsustainable and that they are having a problem with more people abusing the system. I wonder what the Swedes are doing right? The article infers that Sweden is not having this problem.
