Now let me ask you a question? What do you call buying butter at $35 a pound?
Well in Norway apparently it's a bargain and in Sweden it's a profit opportunity.
Yes people, the marauding Swedes are trying to bring down brave little Norway by smuggling in butter!
Two guys "sneaking" across the border with 550 pounds of butter. In 18 oz. packages. Tragically the article is silent on how exactly these packages were concealed.
The article treats the shortage as somehow exogenous and talks about how it has led to "blackmarket trafficking", like butter was heroin. As we noted before, idiotic trade barriers have produced this bogus "shortage".
Norway: We're not just oil, we're oil and butter! (except when we run out of butter).
Norway: No Dutch disease here, just take a peek at our dairy industry!
