There’s a surprisingly unsocialist aspect to many Nordic social benefits: They actually increase the incentive to work hard. This is because the generosity of many benefits is tied to an individual’s income. This applies to benefits during periods of illness and unemployment, as well as to paid parental leaves and , as you’d expect, retirement benefits. The more you earn, the more you’ll get while off the job. There are reasonable limits, of course, but the basic structure of the system provides a powerful motivation to work hard while you can, so that you can keep living reasonably comfortably even when you cannot. This is another reason why even well-off citizens in the Nordic countries tend to like the system: It benefits them, too.
