Sweden could solve the problem of migrants through the creation of a “state within a state” for them in which the national laws would not apply. This is the idea not of a right-wing columnist, but of the chief economist at the World Bank, Paul Romer, director of the Stern School of Business at New York University, who exposed these ideas to the newspaper Dagens Nyhter.
“The issue of refugees is a huge problem, but there are possible solutions”, Romer said. “Sweden, a sparsely populated country, could rent a surface the size of Hong Kong. It is important that this free zone is considered independent, with its own laws and rules, and not as part of Sweden. Those who live there would not be Swedish citizens, but they could live their lives completely separate from the rest of society”. The chief economist at the World Bank included as an example the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.
Too late. Doesn’t he know that these “free zones” already exist in Europe?
