Viking Economics: How The Scandinavians Got It Right

Decades of experience with Nordic countries gave George Lakey a deep appreciation of the hard work it took for Scandinavians to create what are considered model societies the world over. He joins us to discuss the issues in his new book, Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right-and How We Can, Too, which explains how the Nordic style of development could apply to the U.S.

Lakey is also professor emeritus of Issues in Social Change at Swarthmore College, where he manages the college’s Global Nonviolent Action Database research project, and is currently a contributor to the Waging Nonviolence website.
