Dagens nyheter's Debate Them. An ideological attack on the Swedish welfare model

The Swedish government, according to Lars Strannegård, by the tax laws encourage people to make philanthropic contributions. I hope even philanthropic commitment, to become the ”new normal” in the process, business, and community life. So, the financing of intellectual life and research should be increased and broadened, " he says.

so What is it that is causing this enthusiasm for philanthropy? We have, of course, in Sweden, as Strannegård points out, has been the pride of the equality of the model, which led to the fields of culture, education, and research foundation is jointly funded with their taxes.

the who, Roger Akelius, Percy Barnevik, the Antonia Ax:son Johnson, to share in the cultural and scientific purposes. As it can be. However, here we have a hard time to keep up with the conversation. The ever-growing economic inequality is, of course, is a direct result of those very rich will contribute increasingly less to the funding of culture and scientific research through taxes. Sweden is different today from that of all other comparable countries have an extremely low taxation of capital income. The government is today are missing out on a 240 billion annually as a result of the fact that Sweden's tax ratio has been pushed down from around 49 per cent of the gdp to 43 per cent in only twenty years of age. If you would like to get a start in the right end of the world, this is the reason why public sector funds are increasingly available to me.

About the business School and the head teacher really wants to participate in the permanent guarantee of the financing of american culture, and research, and they should strive for a tax system that allows these wealthy contribute far more than they are today.

However, rather than looking at the real problem with increasing inequality, major tax cuts and a public sector that is severely under-funded, lets Strannegård, this under-funding to legitimize, a new philanthropic order. This is, in our opinion, is to start in entirely the wrong end of the world. Lars Strannegård is speaking is clearly not a citizen in the public interest, but the interests that created, and still continue to leave their mark on the business at the stockholm school of Economics, namely, that of the Swedish economic elite of the Wallenberg family at the forefront.

in the Swedish welfare model, which had its point of departure is that we are supposed to be an egalitarian society, where everyone has an equal right to take part in the cultural, educational, and research activities. What should be the content of these activities should be regulated democratically, and the most rikastes want to be a donor. To make the growing of cloves to the basis for this welfare scheme is rare and unsustainable.

this is a situation in which a growing number of economists and major financial institutions such as the OECD and the IMF, remarks on the damage caused by growing income inequality looks At the principal of these differences as a positive factor that can contribute to the private funding of culture and science. We do not have anything against the rich donates money for culture and research, but first of all they will have to pay a fair tax on their wealth. They do not, to this day. Experience has shown, both in the field of culture and science, the contributions, in the form of sponsorships and donations is never going to be anything other than a marginal contribution.

An income tax reform that reduces economic inequality should, according to the Januariavtalet be carried out. If the School and the head teacher really wants to participate in the permanent guarantee of the financing of american culture, and research, and they should strive for a tax system that allows these wealthy contribute far more than they are today. It is possible that the willingness to donate will decrease by one, such a tax system, however, we are convinced that it is better if we really want to secure the financing of important activities in culture and sport.
