THE POINT OF AN ECONOMY IS TO PRODUCE WEALTH...:

Scandinavia is Socialist and Other Leftist Myths Debunked (Kay C. James, 9/13/20, National Interest)

2. Denmark (or your favorite Scandinavian country) is a prime example that socialism works. 

The reality is, Denmark has a free-market economy that produces goods and services that the government then heavily taxes to finance an extensive welfare state. Denmark's prime minister once told a shocked Washington, D.C., audience: "I would like to make one thing clear ... Denmark is a market economy."

Like Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway all rely on free-market capitalism to finance their expansive welfare systems.

...distributing that wealth is a political question.
