Historical accuracy

"As an example to other countries soon to join the industrial age, Norway proved not favourable to Scientific Management. Scientific Management lasted less than a decade in Norwegian culture. It is a country, democratic and egalitarian since the Vikings, with a long tradition in such autonomous occupations as fishing, farming, and lumbering."

I would like to hear the opinion of this forum on the part in bold of this excerpt. Does this seem historically accurate to you?
