Sweden: Lessons for America

“Sweden: Lessons for America?” Viewing Party

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 6:30pm

It’s been suggested that Americans would be better off if the United States was more like Sweden. Do the Swedes know something that we don’t? The documentary Sweden: Lessons for America? A Personal Exploration by host Johan Norberg delves into the economic and social landscape of the Swedish scholar’s homeland. Join Norberg - who will be at ASI for the event - to see that the lessons to be learned from Sweden may not be the ones you expect.

The one-hour documentary follows Norberg on a journey through the history of Sweden’s economic rise, from one of the poorest countries in the world to one of the most prosperous. The program illuminates key ideas and enterprises that sparked the reform and continue to help Sweden maintain its lofty economic position, including freedom of the press, free trade, new technology companies, crazy jobs and even an old Swedish superhero.
