Abstract

Kenneth Hermele's recent MR article, "The End of the Middle Road: Whatever Happened to the Swedish Model?" (March 1993) relates a story about the demise of Swedish social democracy which American progressives should come to grips with. Based on my reading of Swedish political economy and the experience of working in Sweden for large parts of the past seven years, however, I find Hermele's analysis and forecast only about half right.
