Would it surprise you to learn that Sweden routinely ranks higher than the U.S. on the Human Development Index?

I think you're comparing to Pure Communism to Regulated Capitalism and declaring Capitalism the winner, but in an effort to not appear unbaised concede that Pure Capitalism doesn't work either (as the current financial crisis would indicate). Perhaps more apples-to-apples analysis would be beneficial?
