the class society is raw and brutal. It affects the life we are allowed to live, our health, our upbringing, educational attainment, and how long we live. In Sweden, we live in different time depending on which class we belong to.
Are you a winner or a loser depends on how much money you have, who your parents are or what gender you are. You are such a man and among the 10% of society that has the highest income, congratulations, then you are living an average of nine years longer than the men who have the 10 per cent lowest income. For women, the difference is seven years.
at the same time, the chronically ill and the disabled people's economic standard has deteriorated and more and more are forced to live in financial vulnerability. Even those with jobs and decent incomes have fallen behind the elite on the basis of an increasingly hollowed out welfare, decayed infrastructure and less social security.
With the pace of lowering plant risks we are already in the 2030s go past US, and we are in the top of the skewed wealth distribution.
Our lives have become even more of a draw where some are born with luck and others do not. So this is our society. The class society is alive and well and is allowed to do it. But it is politics that change. We need to do this now before the society is torn apart too much, before it välfärdsland many have grown up in is lost and climate change has gone too far. We need to get an economic policy where people can feel confidence in the future. An economic policy in which one of the vulnerable group is not pitted against the other. We must build a politics where everyone is allowed to take place and where the most needy, and our common needs are the highest priority.
It is just to look at their taxation policy: Centre party has the ambition to lower the taxes most of the bourgeois parties, regardless of the consequences for welfare. The liberals have the skevaste the distribution of income in the tax policies of all the parties. Correspondingly, the conclusion after they came into power in 2014 was the ”added cards”. It was Left to know when we negotiated with the government on the budget in the last legislature. This despite the fact that we had eight years of raw conservative fiscal policy. The social democrats seem to have lost confidence in the tax system redistributive effect. What the Greens want is the few who know.
But the tax system is redistribution from high - to low-income households has decreased for several decades. There has been a deliberate policy to reduce the progressiviteten. Sweden has reduced its progressivity and redistribution most of the EU's 15 core. We have, therefore, the least redistributive tax system from high - to low-income households among these countries. With the rate of lowering plant risks we are already in the 2030s go past US, and we are in the top of the warped förmögenhetsfördelning. It is simply a great need of changes.
With our policies allowed the richest to share and contribute according to their ability, the welfare system is strengthened and expanded, the policy reaches the countryside and suburbs, safety increases, and we help each other. So, we build a society that holds together, and where we take care of each other. We have an economic policy for change and equality. We believe that the following principles and suggestions should steer economic policy:
1 Klimatomställningen must be clearly visible in the economic policies. The public investments will increase in the developed rail and access to bus services, in renewable energy, water, fiber, charging infrastructure and new technologies. Then go klimatomställningen faster. The public share of the economy to be allowed to take up more space. It is good for the climate and create a fairer society for us all.
2 The need for a new tax system which redistributes from high - to low-income households. the tax Rate will increase so that we can build out the welfare with better quality, not just maintain the current quality. Care, school and care needs tens of billions in the next few years in order to only cope with today's quality. Unlike the other parties, so we are content to recognise it without adding resources.
3 Incomes, great fortunes, inheritance and high incomes should be taxed more than today. Low - and middle-income earners should pay no less in tax. The sick and the unemployed should have the same tax ratio as the rest of the society.
4 The need for a systematic and long-term investments in improved wages and working conditions in health care.
5 We need to kraftsamlas around the housing crisis. No man works well if it doesn't have a home to stay in. Therefore, we propose a housing programme with the state second mortgage loan to the builders, that the state builds up its own capacity with a private construction company to build energy efficient rental properties with reasonable rents and increased investment aid for the construction in the whole country.
6 , health Insurance and unemployment insurance should be strengthened. we can All have the misfortune to become ill or lose your job. But today is regulations far too harsh and exclusionary. The result is that many are not covered by insurance or are rejected on their applications if, for example, sickness benefit or sickness compensation. It is not reasonable. Therefore, we propose that the regulations be changed and the levels of compensation will be raised. No one should have to feel the economic vulnerability of children in a difficult life situation.
7 the equalisation system will be reviewed. Accommodation in Dorotea or Årjäng should not have to pay significantly more in council tax than the residents in Danderyd, sweden or in Espoo. It is also not reasonable that the access to municipal services, health and government service will be depleted because you live in rural areas. Access to welfare, services and infrastructure must be strengthened in the countryside and in the suburbs.
. We still believe in the Swedish model of economic equality as a central principle. We were once the world's most equal country. Let us aim to be there again.
