Here’s a headline that raises

Here’s a headline that raises a question I would classify as self-answering: “Surge in sick pay raises questions in Sweden”. It appears that 10% of the entire population of Sweden, which should be more like 20% of what would normally be the employed population, is on long-term sick leave or early medical retirement. Let’s see…if not working pays virtually as well as working, and ambition is hardly a factor since no one can get ahead financially anyway…I think the mystery is solved. I can remember when Sweden was seriously held up as a model that the US should follow–even by us, right, Deacon? At least no one is saying that anymore.
