That’s interesting, Matthew. I think the conversation here around institutional trust is important. As you were saying, the Swedish model cannot work in places where citizens distrust governments and institutions that serve them. I’ve always been intrigued by the Scandinavian models, but I also think they operate successfully within their own contexts and blanket solutions won’t work if adopted ‘just as’ in other places.
