Sorry to those who find this indulgent and boring, but maybe some of you will find this interesting.

It's a general description of the Norwegian economy (mixed capitalist/socialist), including comments on taxation levels, cost of living, workers conditions and the oil fund (the world's largest sovereign wealth fund). Although general, I found the descriptions to be pretty good.

Socialism? Capitalism? Neither of these rigid ideological mental illnesses have the answers to the mess we’ve created. Then there’s the reality whenever either of these systems lays claim to being practiced a cursory examination of the details reveals each of them gleefully ignores their own rules.
Russia socialist, let alone communist ? Strange then how many Russian billionaires have had their assets confiscated by the west.
