Why should that be the case in Sweden when its clearly not the case here. For politicians the long-term is the next election. Anything that does not rock the boat until the next election keeps them happy. You may as well be talking about future millennia when you point out that you are storing up ferocious problems that will blow up in 20 or 30 years time. As far as politicians are concerned they live only in the here and now and 20 years time is someone else's problem.You'd think those in politics would be on the side of those that elect them.
