Denmark and Sweden are in serious economic trouble. They can't continue to afford their social programs. Their tax rates are somewhere around 70%. Our own social programs are killing us and the Democratic candidates want to add more that will completely destroy the country in less than ten years.
FYI the world is having economic problems. The US is a disaster.
The US is a disaster in what way? The economy or something else? Economically we're ok at this time, but there are several world countries trending poorly like the UK, Germany, Brazil, and a few others. We've had like 11 straight years of growth so a recession is due, but that's just because of history. I dont know what specific thing will trigger it.
All the rampant deregulation is why we are headed into another recession. And the signs are already showing in the countries you just stated.
