  • If you look at the Nordic countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, you have

  • five countries, they are all different in many ways but there is one very strong common

  • factor, these five countries all have very competitive free market economies. And in

  • every international ranking they are among the top nations in that respect. And their

  • economic success in recent decades demonstrates that the Nordic free market economies perform

  • extraordinarily well. They have produced global companies that dominate many other parts of

  • the world, but at the same time these five Nordic countries have developed a social welfare

  • system where everybody, irrespective of their income and class, gets the same right to education,

  • to healthcare and to equal treatment in any economic way. This coexistence of a social

  • welfare society with a right to education and healthcare is equally distributed throughout

  • society is one of the pillars of our economic and business success. So you cannot find any

  • business organization in any of the Nordic countries, which is advocating that we should

  • decrease this social welfare system. On the contrary, the prominent business leaders of

  • our countries realize that the evolution of this social welfare system in terms of education

  • and healthcare is one of the major reasons why the Nordic businesses have been globally

  • so successful and why our market economies have grown so aggressively.

  • Why? Because if we have an established system that takes care of the sick when they need

  • it and allow every kid to be educated to the fullness of its potential, the business leaders

  • can concentrate on the business. They don't have to worry about the health insurance and

  • everything that goes with this complicated system where you don't have a universal educational

  • or health right. So the Nordic formula, not just the Icelandic one, but also from Norway,

  • Sweden, Finland and Denmark, has created what The Economist, the preeminent weekly economic

  • newspaper in the world, deemed a few months ago perhaps the most successful economic model

  • in the last few decades. So when my American friends call it socialism in a very negative

  • term I'd ask them look at our business record, look at our economic record, look at the growth

  • rate, look at the prosperity, look at the global companies, look at the innovation that

  • takes place within this framework. And if you do that the evidence is absolutely clear

  • that to provide everybody with a right to education and healthcare is a formula for

  • economic and business success.
