If you have a tiny population and massive energy supplies a Norway works. Though the alleged happiness, as previously shown, seems to be lying to pollsters.

Quote:
After seeing his country held up as an example in the US presidential debate, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen used an address at Harvard to explain the Nordic model to a US audience suddenly very interested in Denmark.
Speaking at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Danish PM Lars Løkke Rasmussen told students that he had “absolutely no wish to interfere the presidential debate in the US” but nonetheless attempted to set the record straight about his country.

"I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy,” Rasmussen said.
excerpt from above cited article

Well, first "we" must learn of the depth and breadth of the propaganda we've all received about socialism for 80 years. All the posts here about inept leadership and failed socialist governments are just spewing that propaganda with no actual knowledge behind it.

Welcome to DTT where people just apply labels to ppl they don't like without knowing the definitions of those words.
