Is The American Dream Now In Denmark?

  • Djaffar Shalchi is a very rich man. Like many in his class, he “gives back.” But in one important way he differs from many philanthropists. He believes that philanthropy is no substitute for taxation and a properly functioning, welfare-providing government.
  • DJAFFAR: “They could not be more wrong. In real life, contrary to the Hollywood tale, kids are more likely to achieve the American dream in Denmark than in America. America is not a beacon to the world on how to run an economy. Scandinavia has a much more impressive economic record than the US and is much more innovative. Sorry, my American friends — we’re not just fairer than you. We’re doing better by being so.”
