Down redistribution of riches supercharges economic situations. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Inform us exactly what you believe in the comment area below.

" High taxes, strong unions and also an equivalent distribution of wide range.

That's the dish for success in a globalized globe, according to Magdalena Andersson, the Social Autonomous economist who's likewise Sweden's financing preacher.

The 50-year-old has been elevating taxes and investing extra on well-being given that winning power in 2014. She's additionally looked after a financial boom, with Swedish growth rates covering 4 percent early in 2014, that has actually turned budget deficits right into surpluses.

In a globe still flinching from the monetary situation that hit a decade back as well as the populist wave that followed, Sweden's economic stewardship holds lessons that test the conventional wisdom in the U.S. on exactly how tax obligations work, according to the Harvard-educated priest. Talking in a meeting in Stockholm, Andersson says success comes down to "three things: It's the works, it's our welfare as well as it's our redistribution."" *.

    If only they paid more attention their Muslim rape epidemic. Vikings are spinning in their graves and Odin is disappointed.

      +Gustav the Mad You know that Vikings traveled to different countries and raped local people on much larger scale than Muslims do (both really and allegedly) in Sweden, right?

      How come you believe there is a rape epidemic in Sweden? Oden is not disappointed 🙂

      No, Sweden doesn’t keep track of racial statistics because:
      1. There is the idea that equality is fostered by not dividing people by race.
      2. There are lots and lots of mixed race kids, and it is not considered right to make them “choose” one race over another.
      3. Since Sweden hasn’t had slavery in the country since the 1300’s there isn’t the racial inequality and discrimination that institute created. i.e. race isn’t that big a deal.

      Patternicity but we also have 4x as many people. That’s like looking at a house with ten people where 4 are murdered every year, and a house with 40 people where 16 are murdered every year, and then saying “wow! that first house is so much safer! only 4 people get murdered every year!”

    brainwashed Americans will never buy into the notion that Democratic socialism will ever work, because they’re too ignorant to realize that we are no longer a capitalistic Society! we are more of an oligarch based society than we have been a true capitalistic Society in decades! the only ones truly benefiting from True capitalism are less than 5% of the US population while everyone else falls under some form of an oligarchy!

    • Posted by Dave Bass, at Reply

      Capitalism requires consumers, requires currency, requires balance and flow unrestricted by artificial and rigged criminal hierarchy of the Pirates of industry and finance. Squeaky wheel never gets addressed and our economy goes into the ditch. It is clear The titans are doubling down on the crapshoot that America has become and the dumbstruck and overburdened populace are heading for epic showdown.

      Socialism is a diverse ideology and it includes some market socialist tendencies within it as well as mixed economy schemes. As such you cannot reduce it to one single scheme such as those of the communists be them state communism or libertarian communism. Maybe you should call yourself more specifically “communist” instead of socialist.

    • Posted by twist, at Reply

      You’re pretty thick, aren’t you? I never referred to myself as a socialist and I never said that socialism is exclusively a communist mode of production. You’re attempting to salvage face by throwing strawmen about and it’s pretty droll mate.

      But I do take issue with things already mentioned above. .

    • Posted by Truth Storian, at Reply

      A relevant tangent about the Great Depression is that it was caused by insufficient money being printed even though sufficient amounts of Gold were in reserve to cover it. In plain English; it was engineered to bring the Fed. Which is now just about ran its inevitable course of inflation while submersing private parties in unparalleled wealth sucked from the American people through IV’s.

    • Posted by That Fig, at Reply

      Truth Storian hmm..sorry i didn’t read all of them, while i disagree with some of the terminology id say its surprisingly reasonable. But the problem isnt what we ARE doing, its what we AREN’T doing. We give the man a fish instead of teaching him to fish. Relief without recovery. If we teach our fellow man how to motive himself and helping them get jobs then we would have a perfect system. Most of the parasites in our society are those who are in a mental and emotional ditch who dont know what to do with their lives or how to make themselves happy.

      doing these things can help more than throwing money or not throwing money at the problem.

      Actually, a couple of studies were done in Sweden on this. It showed that the majority of crimes are committed by people who are Swedish born from parents that were Swedish born. It also showed that the majority of rape victims there are actually immigrants/refugees, or their children. The rape rate actually spiked before the current huge refugee crush began, when extremely broad legal definitions of rape were put in place; broader than most other countries can imagine.

      Seeing as victims in Sweden face no stigma such as blame, being brushed off or being shamed for reporting rape, many more report it than in other countries. And other than the rape rate, which goes up every time the legal definition of rape is further broadened(as one would reasonably expect), crime in general in Sweden has actually been going down. Sorry, but them’s the facts.

    I don’t want to offend Americans
    But I’ll say this
    I’m European and lived in both Norway and the UK
    And in school in the Uk we did mainly British and European history but in high school we did Some American
    The golden age and prohibition
    After learning about the golden age I was very excited to go to America, I always knew Europe was better but I was still exited
    Not gonna lie I got here and went to Hawaii, Cali and New York. honestly I was so disappointed nothing like what I imagined
    Just to name one thing I think I saw more homeless people in those 3 weeks in America than in my entire life
    I really hope America can bounce back cause u have lost ur charm

    • Posted by Rock Johnson, at Reply

      Dan B Yeah but we don’t have muslim rape gangs so at least we have that going for us. You guys have tons of homeless migrants turning your once nice cities into ghettos, causing extremely high rates of crime, raping and sexually assaulting people, and literally shitting in the streets. Europe definitely isn’t better. You guys are dying, and fast.

      +Kimberly H, just a couple of questions, where the hell do you come from & where the hell do you get the idea that Mexico is in any way like the south-eastern usa? Jsyk, Mexico has what the usa does not, health care for all, is it perfect, no, does it work, a definate yes. Do we have a homeless problem in our major cities, yes but name me one just one american city (doesnt even have to be major) where you’re homeless problem isn’t 10x worse than ours. Do we have income inequality yes but usa’s is much worse in that respect also. Our economy is actually growing where as yours is in decline so please stop comparing your undesirables to us as we are in no way, shape or form even close to the madness you have going on over there. As for some of our people going over there to work do some research & find out what the reality is, there are many videos on youtube of american contractors openly stating the reasons why they prefer mexican (or immigrant) workers over your own, & no it’s not because they get paid less than your workers do, they paid the same or even more & why is that so? mainly the work ethic, my people have always had & will have a strong pride in our work ethic & most of all the QUALITY of our work.

      The reality that Sweden is falling apart and their people might vote for a, in TYT’s terms, “racist” party in 2018? Or what reality are we ignoring in this channel

    • Posted by Matthew Stroud, at Reply

      doxide Unions are a free market byproduct. they have 0 minimum wage policies and remains as a country with some of the fewest regulations, ranked only 1 point above the US by the Economic Trading site. According to the Heritage Foundation’s Economic Freedom Chart Sweden is only 2 places below the US and has increased in Business Freedom.

      All of this means Sweden can sustain such “socialist policies” thanks to its heavy duty capitalist practices. If Sweden were to diminish or eliminate Business Freedom and other capitalist Policies they would look a lot more like Venezuela or Cuba which exhibit some of the smallest amounts of business freedom

    Sweden’s income Tax is over 57% (say goodbye to more than half your check), their sales tax is 25%, all of their goods cost 3-8 times more than in the USA. If a car costs 20K in the USA, in Sweden it costs 60K. Gas is on average $9 a gallon, but that’s ok because most cannot afford cars and ride bicycles. Rent is also about 30% more. An average Swedish monthly salary is $3400.

    Healthcare and college education is free in Sweden, but take all of that into account, and understand that a person making an average salary in the USA, when not being taxed to death would be able to afford the platinum standard for health insurance and any community/state college if they had the competency to budget their finances and work financial aid.

    • Posted by Erik Eriksson, at Reply

      Swedens income tax is not over 57 %. That is the top marginal tax. I earn 75 000 USD per year and pay about 30 % in tax. Then I get health care, education, a future public pension and much more.

      Enayze hi i live in sweden and live in the municapality with the highest tax, last year i made 304111sek in work income i pay 78494 sek in tax on that. (if i would have my income not from work put pension it would be higher about 32-33% becouse of a work tax reduction)
      by my calculation that is about 26% in tax source: my last salary notification of 2016 (preliminary tax during 2016 i also got 1422 sek in rest tax but that was mostely on capital income) i paid both municipal and regional tax and came to the point of some state tax.
