Welfare – U.S. vs. them

An interesting “Freakonomics” column looks at the differences between U.S. welfare and the famously generous welfare of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland:

“Ask anyone. Who spends more on social welfare:  the U.S. or Sweden and other Nordic countries?  Nearly everybody will say Sweden. But the answer, at least as of the mid-2000s, might surprise you.”

It certainly surprised me. It’s a really eye-opening analysis.
