Hilary Emberton: The ‘horrors’ of social democracy

Further to Cheryl Branch’s Sept. 12 rebuttal of the perils of social democracy, it might be added that Sweden ranks 8th (Peterson Institute for International Economics) or 9th (Business Insider) in the world for the number of billionaires per capita.
