Full disclosure. I am half Norwegian.
I am also Canadian by birth and American by naturalization. I grew up in a country where the social safety net was strengthened over the years. America could, and should, take a lesson from Canada, Norway and many other countries on how to treat its people. As someone who is now semi-retired, I can look forward to my benefits that I paid for throughout my working life. I fear that my children and grandchildren will not be able to do that, and that is sad.
This piece in Next Avenue explains how Norway is leading the world by providing pensions to all its citizens. There is no reason America could not do this.
