I highly doubt that the Swedish government would have such a great interest in Svartholm that they would pay to get him extradited. Also how much aid was given to Cambodia before Svartholm was arrested? Unless that figure was close to zero I fail to see how Sweden payed for his extradition.

Isbiten writes "Today Swedish state television (SVT) launched the website Dear Steve Jobs aimed at Steve Jobs to get approval for their application. The application streams the same content that SVT has on it's website to the iPhone. They even have a special button just for Steve Jobs to press on to approve the application.

"We have tried to simplify the approval process as much as possible for you. Just press the green button below and record a video of yourself saying "JA" (that’s "yes" in Swedish, pronounced "yah").""

A Toyota shop near me introduced 30h working week for it staff. They kept the same pay but worked 6h days instead of 8h. Guess what productivity went up, the shop had longer opening hours 12h (2 shift) vs 8h (1 shift). People got sick less, fewer mistakes were done, customers were happier and revenue went up.

The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
