Brilliant. Why doesn't the U.S do this as well? Well, maybe because everything is outrageously priced in Sweden and in the U.S. we can get lunch for cheaper than that anyway. Shoot, I can get dinner in the U.S. for under 85 SEK also.

So thanks to Tom's Lonely Planet Guide to Stockholm we found out that the government subsidizes lunch everywhere in the country. They do this so as the keep workers happy throughout the day. A good plate of food costs 125 SEK and up nearly everywhere, even rising to as much as 400-500 SEK for a meal $79 USD. With the government subsidy, every restaurant is required to offer lunch at a price under 85 SEK.
