Swedish Election to Discourage South Koreans From Welfare State?
Now the conservative opposition apparently argue that since the Swedes rejected the welfare state, why should South Korea try to adopt the welfare state?
Actually, it is somewhat misleading (unfortunately) to say that the centre-right represent a rejection of welfare statism since it occurred after Reinfeldt moved his Moderate Party to the centre. At most, one can say it represent a rejection of the excesses planned by the Social Democrats and their Green and Communist allies. But if it will lead South Koreans away from implementing welfare statism, then it is just another reason to think that the centre-right victory was after all a good thing.
