Investment in the police and judiciary, healthcare and education must go before tax cuts, say a majority of Swedish business executives in a Dagens Industri survey. Tax rates are irrelevant if law and order systems do not function properly, comments Gunnar Mårdh, head of the Swedish Federation of Business Owners (Företagarna).
Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson considers the findings important ahead of negotiations on a new tax reform. She says the wishes of the executives are in line with those of the government. “We need to strengthen the police and the judiciary. And the billions that will need to be spent on elderly care, healthcare and education are one of the main areas we will be working on in this term of office.”
