Viking Economics by George Lakey
Viking Economics is a book by Philadelphia author George Lakey and includes the following excerpt:
Norwegians a century ago didn't like the results of a wealth gap: the hunger and poverty, the crime, elderly friends warehoused or left in isolation, young people without hope of a good job. Norwegians also didn’t like the attitudes that went with inequality: an inclination toward arrogance among higher-income people and the feeling among lower-income people that they were losers defeated by the system.
