Sweden still best in class

Please remember when I say Sweden is doing well, it is in relation to others. My birth nation is not something to follow, not in any way. However, as said, in comparison to most other countries the political leaders in Sweden are making slight progress towards sanity.

Before the first wave of our financial Armageddon the Swedish leadership sold off government assets that lowered the public debt, they changed a couple of laws and made it better for the working through lower taxes. When the crisis hit they managed to keep most maddening schemes perpetrated by the world elitists to a minimum. Of course they also made big mistakes, mainly in handing over hundreds of billions to banksters and with the government own SBAB (think Fanny and Freddie) and the horrible central bank we have a giant real-estate and housing bubble in Sweden today ready to burst when the next wave hits us. But the worst mistake the puppet masters of Sweden did was the things they neglected to do. Basically everything they and the governments across the world have done is the complete opposite of what they should have done.

However, today, just in time before the next crisis the Swedish government managed to sell off stocks in one of Sweden’s biggest banks, bringing in 19bn SEK, and even better: they will use the money to lower the public debt even further! If they weren’t a bunch of soul-sucking fascistoid misfits I would consider running over there and kiss one or two of them.

Of course lefties will complain because in their world the government should own and control everything just like in happy shiny North Korea, but you all need to understand how important these 19bn (and hopefully more) really is. The lower the public debt, the more credit worthy the country becomes. The lower the public debt, the more stabile the country becomes and so attracts more investments and so forth. It will also strengthen the currency, which is a good thing no matter what cornflake economists argue.

Also getting rid of stocks in a bank (that will crash and burn soon) that the state is only a passive owner of will do a lot of good for everything and everyone involved.

Finally when the biggest Tsunami wave of financial despair in the history of mankind hit our shorelines the coming years this sell-off, and hopefully a lot more of the same, will put Sweden in a situation whereas we don´t need to save so much, don´t need to draw back so much, don´t need to increase taxes so much, and don´t need to fuck over the little guy as much. Again this is, of course, in comparison with other countries.

Please my dear Swedish Government; sell more! And sell them soon. You don´t have a lot of time left, and if there are suckers who wants to buy, sell, sell, sell and sell!

Please also eliminate all the fascist laws you´ve put in place. One of the things that will lift us out from absolute despair and poverty a decade or so down the line is to have a free information flow and that we make the best out of new technologies. If you keep that surveillances and monitoring it will seriously hamper our recovery. So from both an ideological and a financial perceptive – please erase all Orwellian crap.

And finally, please also eradicate much of the laws that are hinders in the way of progress and free enterprise. There are a lot of them so I will not spend a month typing that long list, just start hacking away at the laws and erase as many as possible as fast as possible.

These three suggestions are doable, even for the left-twisted Government of Sweden. Please heed my warning, we´re heading for a fall. Make sure as few as possible tip over.
