The problem using Sweden as an example of a socialist model that works? Sweden ain't socialist

• https://www.aei.org

 But there's a big problem with using those Nordic countries as examples of the socialist utopias that America should emulate. Especially for Sweden as Johan Norberg points out in a Cato Institute Policy Report "Sweden's Lessons for America": Sweden is NOT socialist:

If Sanders and Ocasio??Cortez really want to turn America into Sweden, what would that look like? For the United States, it would mean, for example:

1. More free trade

2. A more deregulated product market

3. No Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

4. The abolition of occupational licensing and minimum wage laws

5. The abolition of taxes on property, gifts, and inheritance

6. Even after the recent tax cut, America would still have to slightly reduce its corporate tax
