I would advise reading https://www.amazon.com/Political-Order-Decay-Industrial-Glob.... Due to the order of development where the US was free first then developed a bureaucratic state. The Us has always had a low state capacity. Add onto that the role of the states in the US as co-sovereign and you run into a lot of implementation difficulties in making these proposed Nordic policies workable here.

Any policy we attempted to implement would be resisted by the states. Held up in court, and ultimately made useless by special interest.
