Economic Freedom – The USA vs. Scandinavia

Economic Freedom – The USA vs. Scandinavia – Youtube


This is a cartoon dialog that I created to illustrate the differences in the United States economy, vs Scandinavia.
This dialog illustrates how Scandinavian countries do not punish wealth like the USA does, which is why there are more jobs and opportunity in those countries. But also many of these Scandinavian countries put the tax burden on individuals both rich and poor more than they do businesses.

I cited some stats in my video and the references are below.
