Countries like Norway have a *lot* of things about them that are positive, and drive that high standard of living. Unfortunately, most of those things are unpalatable to people who believe a policy is good just because someone that they like says it's good. :-)

You really can't condense economics down to bumper stickers.

Norway's "good thing" is what it controls under the ground (or North Sea). From the EU web site -

Norway is in the global top 5 exporters of crude oil. The oil and gas sector constitutes around 22% of Norwegian GDP and 67% of Norwegian exports. Norway is Western Europe's most important source of natural gas.

They can do all of the stuff and standard of living because of "drill baby, drill"
