Put on your tin foil hats and repeat after me: Sweden is different! Prices only go up! Oh wait, except for when they went down in the 70s and 90s... hmm...

One of the most materialistic societies in the Western World.

Want it, want it now.

A far cry from the phoney image it constantly tries too project.

Not really!

The dollar down and the dollar when they catch you has been a USA mantra for a long time...believe it or not the so called Government here has changed that to include catching our grandchildren for our debt today...there is no end to socialist spending...in any society!

So I ask...how long did you last in your job when you came constantly over budget?

There is no limit when the government can print money...Why can't we do the same?????????

Do you mean like Iraq and those pesky weapons of mass destruction?
Damn those weapons are world champions of hide and seek.
