Sweden is a remarkably successful country. A poor peasant nation in the 1850s, it became one of the world’s richest countries a century later. It ranks among the world’s freest developed nations. Should the United States be more like Sweden? The documentary Sweden: Lessons for America? delves into aspects of Swedish politics and society that may surprise many Americans. Join us to see a segment of the documentary from the Free to Choose Network. Swedish film host and scholar Johan Norberg will describe how his country has changed over time, highlight policy successes, and explain why Sweden’s economic policies are often misunderstood by outsiders.
