Saskatchewan VS. Sweden

I came across this piece in the Economist via Cosh's indispensible world news roundup, and I was surprised by the similarities between Saskatchewan and Sweden. I've long known that Sweden is stagnant, but the data in the article is stunning.

A few of those statistics I'd like to see replicated in Saskatchewan. For example, when was the last major corporation established in Saskatchewan? I'd guess it was before 1990.

Did you know that if a swede is laid off from work, she is entitled to three years of welfare at 80 per cent of the previous salary? Why would anyone work?
