"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."
"When Magdalena Andersson talked yesterday in front of the Folkets hus in Stockholm, sweden delivered a surprising public policy speech."
"It was about the welfare role as omfördelningsmotor, about the growing inequality, that is limited by gender roles, that a woman still earns 3.6 million less over the life than a man, of full employment and of social democratic as a movement in opposition to injustice."
"But Magdalena Andersson is also finance minister and she wants more people to pay taxes. And to Norra Bantorget, she had a socialist election promise ahead of the upcoming EUROPEAN parliament elections: new measures to stop tax evasion."
"Among other things, want's to informationsdelningen between EU tax authorities be increased so that the tax evasion is easier to be detected. All EU countries should be forced to keep records of the persons who stand behind a company in order to make it more difficult to use complex company structures to avoid paying tax."
"It is, of course, excellent policy and it is actually strange that there is not already a reality. According to the French economist Gabriel Zucman is about 10 per cent of Europe's assets invested in tax havens. It involves huge sums of money that would be needed to be invested in the continent's schools, healthcare and infrastructure. The current scheme will corrode rather than break the trust between people and reinforces the upprorsvåg against the establishment that rolls over Europe."
"Here in Sweden we have high confidence in the rule of law, government and the political system. It is one of the most important factors in Sweden, after all, is a decent country. But the confidence of the common requires that the rules of the game apply equally to all."
"When some of our country's richest individuals and corporations arrange it so that they won't have to pay tax and the political system lets them get away with it – so undermined the trust and our social contract is being undermined."
"It doesn't stop there. Sweden is today the only industrialized country that has abolished the inheritance tax, wealth tax and property tax. Today the tax system is constructed so that really rich people pay less in tax than ordinary wage earners."
"Not only betonghäckarnas wrong"
"An example: Antonia Ax:son Johnson, owner of, inter alia, the discount supermarket chain Willys, estimates 18 percent despite the fact that she has an income of over 5 million a month. At the same time get a cashier who works at the Willys to pay 23% in taxes."
"Any prospects to remedy such perversions are not."
"– that which stands in the way for more socialist reforms, it is not actually we betonghäckar in the party leadership, but it is the results that we have, noted Magdalena Andersson yesterday."
"So it is. To Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund does not realize what is at stake is staggering."
