Lezing "The Swedish Way"

Let’s look back at the typical Swedish ideal of Folkhemmet and how it was represented by the social democratic party all the way from Hansson to Palme, from 1932 to 1986. How it shaped the way the Swedes live and think. How it got the attention of the rest of the world. What happened to the Swedish Model? Is it still relevant or possible? Is it still part of the Swedish identity? Let’s listen to David Persson.
