Work Incentives and Employment Are the Wrong Explanation of Sweden's Success
IN HIS RESPONSE TO MY COMMENT (BERGH 2006), LINDERT insinuates repeatedly that my criticisms of his book are little more than ideological bias. In this response, I will try even harder to recur to the facts. Still my conclusion is that Lindert is wrong about work incentives and employment in Sweden. To explain the so called free-lunch puzzle, we probably need to look closer at institutional quality and economic freedom.
