“Is the U.S. safety net a better system than the universal Nordic programs?   Many Nordic people seem to prefer theirs, and many Americans seem to prefer ours.  Despite the difference in approaches, the striking feature here is that the amounts spent per person in the population are not that different.  The U.S., like most developed and developing countries, has greatly expanded its demand for security, and thus expenditures on social welfare have risen dramatically throughout the past century.”
