Swedes Outwork US Workers

Sweden Surpasses the U.S. in Hours Worked Per Working Age Adult | National Review Online:

The US continues it's decline as a nation that DOESN'T work -- literally and figuratively.
Among the 21 OECD countries with available data regarding hours worked per working age adult, the top five countries are Switzerland, Iceland, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.
So to add insult to injury, not Sweden doesn't even make the top five!

It appears that taxing what you want less of (work) and subsidizing what you want more of (indolence), is very effective!

This government policy stuff isn't that hard after all. Perhaps we will figure out that spending way more than you earn year after year causes bankruptcy next!
