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.
The Nordic model is an expanded welfare state which provides a high level of security for its citizens, but it is also a successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life as you wish.
Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, 2015 speech at Harvard
Our new socialists point to Scandinavia and reveal they know little about Scandinavia and less about Socialism.
