Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Some years ago when I was doing research on Midwest progressive movements, someone loaned me a very obscure book written here in Minnesota by a Hauge preacher's wife in the late 1880s.  She was quite the economic radical--especially for USA.  And most surprisingly for someone associated with a religious group that is SO pietistic.

St. Olaf college is four blocks from the house so I know it well.  And since at least 1/3 of the Norwegian immigrants who settled around here were Hauges, I am not surprised at their interest.  But it is a pretty conservative place so I imagine they will be shocked when they discover Hauge economics.

Ah yes, the Norskies--much more complex than they first appear!
