    If itís such a no-brainer, why arenít any of the Democratic candidates making that argument? Why is Warren, for instance, squirming on the hook of M4A to the extent she is?

    The Nordic model (which term probably over generalizes a group of countries with different practices) can provide a valuable example. In many ways. They outrank the US in some measures of economic...
