Sweden: Image and Reality

Interesting post here about Sweden from Lane Kenworth, Professor of Sociology, University of Arizona:

Surprises for the Left about Sweden:
1. Strong work ethos
2. Embrace of globalization
3. School choice
4. Partially privatized pensions

Surprises for the Right about Sweden:
1. Competitive economy
2. High degree of mobility (income and wealth)
3. Poor are well-off
4. Heterogeneous population

They forgot "Exceedingly High Instance of Sexual Assault by Unassimilable Immigrant Muslim Population"

Not sure who that one would be a surprise to.
