Social Democratic Capitalism

Lane Kenworthy

  • Confronts current economic, social, and political challenges, presenting an evidence-based answer to the questions: What policies and institutions work best? Where should we go?
  • Examines the superior performance of social democratic capitalism (sometimes called the "Nordic model") and empirically shows what would happen if it were implemented in other nations
  • Provides detailed policy recommendations for the United States, along with estimates of their cost and a set of tax changes that would yield the revenue needed to fund them
