Sweden is famous as the example of socialism that actually works, but the story is more complicated than that. Join Johan Norberg as he presents about how Sweden got rich and how it eventually experimented with socialism but came to regret it.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.
