Sweden has one of the smallest income disparities in the world. This is partly due to the small wage differentials and, secondly, of the high taxes, and income taxes. This, coupled with the significant redistribution of the money that is made by the tax-funded welfare system, it also means that the difference between those who work and those who do not, it is a very, very small. It does not prevent the social Democrats ' own "think tank" of the Time, together with the Swedish trade union confederation economists are now present what has to be described as a skattechock.
Disturbing report from the Times
In a new report, the advocate, for instance, a new tax on inheritance and gifts. The taxes, which were abolished by the prime minister Göran Persson's government in 2004 for two very simple reasons. They give almost no money to the state treasury (0.1% of GDP), but it had extremely adverse effects. Capital, people and businesses moved out of the country, in order to avoid a family dismembered in the context of arvsskiften.
It's simply not going to work together to make a sail boat, or a house by the lakeside.
After the elimination, and combined with the fact that the wealth tax was abolished – has been set up and the contractors have moved back to Sweden, and more people are choosing to start and run a business here. This makes Sweden richer and richer, and creating jobs.
the most hated tax in
- They also want to reinstate the state property tax. When it was abolished, it was one of the most loathed taxes. For good reason. Despite the fact that certain restrictions were imposed in order to prevent the most obvious of the drawbacks of the tax, such as that of widows and widowers was forced out of his house as an income disappeared – the resistance is large. Now, the property tax back to the takregler. We will once again have the opportunity to experience how people are being forced out of their homes and summer cottages.
Envy toward the boat owners
Another suggestion is to tax what the debaters call the ”lyxegendomar”. As an example, to the boats as ”high-income earners, are greatly over-represented among the boat owners”. You acknowledge that this is not going to generate particularly high revenues. When you read this report, it is clear that the primary purpose nor is it to be raising taxes.
None of the proposals have the potential to bring in substantial sums of money to the state treasury. Rather, it seems, the ambition to reduce inequalities by cutting the ends. It's simply not going to go to the store or to work together to make a sail boat, or a house by the lakeside.
still, It is refreshingly honest, to the leading social democrats did not allow the exercise of freedom and growth is to stand in the way of plain and simple envy. But could the social democrats, once again, allow for this type of case to be the guiding principles for the design of policy, we would all be poorer, something which does not seem to deter the authors.
Damaging to Sweden a serious
the desire to högskatteland, as we saw in the '70s and' 80s, where the state is drowned out by the individuals and the companies, and where the taxes on the income, sometimes in excess of 100 per cent, damage to Sweden seriously. It is a long journey, which we then made, in which both the bourgeois as a social-democratic governments, reduced taxes, it has gone in the right direction, but it is far from being complete.
We've all been for the better, much remains to be done as a regular wage-earners do not even get to keep half of what they have been working together. < / span> < / span>
