Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Carl: There is a famous unwritten law in Swedish culture often referred as Jantelagen or “The law of Jante,” which states that you should not show off your possessions or successes. This might explain why Sweden's richest man, Ingvar Kamprad, still drives an old Volkswagen when he is in Sweden.
