Almost Perfekt: How Sweden Works and What We Can Learn From It
EPUB

Book Description
Sweden

A country that defies the laws of economic gravity. A land with high wages, strong unions and generous welfare. A dream location for business and a bastion of social responsibility, coming out on top for childcare, equality and quality of life.

Perfect.

Or is it?

Having lived in Sweden for six years, journalist David Crouch has a unique perspective as an outsider looking in on one of the world's most successful yet divided countries. Based on more than 70 interviews with leading figures in Swedish industry and politics, Almost Perfekt is a journey through Swedish society and what sets it apart from the world today.

How does Sweden manage unemployment?
What makes it so good for business?
And how is it dealing with immigration?

With political and economic upheaval threatening to pull Europe apart, discover the reality of how Sweden works and what we can learn from it.
