ONLINE: Vesterheim Bokprat (Book Club): Viking Economics

October 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

book cover for Viking economicsDr. Maren Johnson, Luther College’s Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, facilitates a monthly bokprat (book club), discussing Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life. Viking Economics by George Lakey gives the non-economist the tools they need to examine, compare, and contrast the economic systems used in developed countries today. Lakey primarily compares the “Viking” or Nordic model with the United States. He gives all the history and statistics one needs to understand and form opinions while never boring the reader. Lakey brings in his personal experience and conversations with his Norwegian in-laws that stimulate the broader discussion. Don’t hesitate to contact Andrew Ellingsen, Folk Art Coordinator, with any questions you may have (aellingsen@vesterheim.org).

Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

Special Instructions: Registrants should secure their own copy of the book and have read it prior to the discussion.
