Robert Strand on Building a Resilient Society: The Case of Nordic Capitalism
April 30, 10:30 - 11:30 AM
Join us for an illuminating talk by Robert Strand, who will discuss how to build a resilient and sustainable society based on the Nordic model. Nordic countries — Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, and Denmark — consistently rank at or near the top of virtually every global sustainability metric. This includes the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Index of the 17 UN SDGs that includes No Poverty, Reduced Inequalities, and Climate Action. American discourse about the Nordic countries often involves charges of ‘socialism’ that can often spiral into unproductive ideological debates. Nordic countries have pragmatically developed a variety of capitalism over the past century where markets are utilized where they work and kept in check where they do not.
