"the Debaters: in Order to maintain the current health, education and care required 90 billion extra in tax."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. In order to maintain only the current health, education and care required tax increases at just under 90 billion by 2040. To care, school and care to be restored to the level before the 90's crisis requires an additional 50 billion. On the other hand, if the current tax level is maintained, the absence of a further 135 000 employees in the welfare 2040. It is a crossroads, and the policy must have the courage to be honest with which way you want to go."
"In the report ”Welfare future” (Arena Idea), by associate professor Lars-Fredrik Andersson, stated that the need for welfare services will increase because of Sweden's ageing population. In this sense, it is in good company. The report, however, put the figures on what both the welfare costs to maintain and what it would cost to mend the rifts that have arisen since the 90's and what the consequence will be if the tax increases fail to materialise."
"An ageing population and increased longevity is one of the best measurements of how successful a society is, but it also creates fiscal challenges. For even if life expectancy has increased, do not have the time in work has increased. "
"nor does It mean necessarily that the people have become healthier in later part of life, but on the contrary, points to the research that it is (among other things) the care and omsorgsbehandlingar which gives elderly people a longer and better life. "
"Similarly, the large expansion in the field of education, which allowed for broad groups to obtain their education, a huge success. It leads however also to an increasing proportion of life devoted to the study. It has a direct impact on the number of (tax-paying) career."
"Women's labour force participation has also increased dramatically since the 60's. Once again a great success. Few dispute that the expansion of child and elderly care contributed greatly to the success. But it also costs money."
"the Report has calculated three different välfärdsscenarier and its effect on taxes and welfare. "
"It is in this context that the implemented tax cuts in Mu002FKD budget for 2019, and then in the P, MP, L, C-the agreement for the remaining term of office is to be seen. "
"the Politicians should be clear that there is a time to decide to do; maintain the public consumption (welfare) or increase in private consumption with tax cuts. Both are an impossible combination."
