I grew up in Obama’s America. It is called Sweden. I have experienced, first hand, what the welfare state is like and what it does to people. I saw my country decline from top-of-the-world prosperity to industrial poverty. Where most people only see the benevolent surface of the welfare state, I have seen its dark, destructive and eventually evil side. I have seen how the welfare state reduces human beings to instruments of collectivist policies.
I have seen how the welfare state destroys lives – all in the name of an ideology. I have made a promise to God to fight this evil construct for as long as I live.
I earned my Ph.D. in social sciences with major in economics at Roskilde University in Denmark in 2000. My doctoral thesis, Uncertainty, Macroeconomic Stability and the Welfare State, was picked up by Ashgate, a British academic publishing company, in 2002, the same year I came to the United States. In 2009 I joined the Wyoming Liberty Group, a free-market think tank, where I am now a senior fellow in economics.
My economics scholarship is based in the Keynesian tradition. Philosophically, I am a Nozick libertarian. I have practiced martial arts for many years and have a black belt in American kenpo. I am also a devout Christian with a growing interest in Coptic orthodoxy.
