SOLUTION 239-246: FINLAND -- THE WELFARE GAME. Martti Kalliala et al. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2012. Solution. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 116 pp. with 16 ills. 17 x 11 cm. ISBN 9781934105696 In English.
Publisher's description: Welcome to Finland, a young land experiencing a rapidly aging consciousness, where newly founded institutions are already outmoded and geographic impediments are a constant crippling agent. The latest addition to international prankster/deep thinker Ingo Niermann's Solution series, this wryly entertaining book addresses the Nordic country's numerous predicaments. The three Finnish authors offer solutions to their native country's quandaries, ranging from the absurd (the implementation of fiction-mongering emissaries to boost tourism) to the earnest and probably half-serious (the repurposing of the country to host nuclear waste). The book elucidates the northern country's modern history as a nation under construction, proposing that its identity remain a malleable myth.
