T172 ; you are completely clueless... Norway would drive you leftist crazy So the simple-minded story is that Norway is some great socialist state yet its economy is humming along just nicely. Let me summarize its real keys to prosperity. •A tiny, non-diverse, predominantly white and Christian population. •Drilling in its ocean for oil to become one of the biggest oil exporters on the planet, and the biggest by far on a per capita basis, all during a time when oil prices quintupled. •Letting its carbon footprint grow at one of the fastest paces in Europe, a pace almost five times faster than the U.S.'s. •Shrinking its government spending, the equivalent to the U.S. fe
