4. Sweden has nearly twice the billionaires per capita than the United States

and Denmark has a substantially larger number per capita as the United States.

Both are socialist democracies.

I'm not a fan of Billionaires, but it seems that the presence of them doesn't seem to be the demise of democratic socialism. They are an easy scapegoat/dragon to slay, but clearly progressive welfare states do not inherently threaten the existence of billionaires in their borders.
