Sweden’s “Lighter touch” Approach – A Cautionary Tale or A Candid Lesson?

Is socially responsible capitalism the best antidote against pandemics ? What can we learn from Sweden’s response to the Covid 19?

Sweden’s “lighter touch” approach to the Covid-19 surprised the World, not only by its uniqueness but also by its effectiveness. While many factors may be at play here, Sweden’s response to the public health crisis and its immediate economic consequences raise the question as to whether socially responsible capitalism is the best “societal” antidote against pandemics.

In this interactive seminar, Michael Bucher explores the institutions and governance structures that not only enabled but shaped Sweden’s management of the COVID 19 health crisis.

Instructor: Michael Bucher
Date: Monday, August 10th, 2020

    THE FED’S OTHER MANDATE: FACILITATING AND REGULATING WAGE SLAVERY


    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics, this talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.
