    schema:description "By taking the long view on the evolution of this country's tax policies through the past few decades, Henrekson and Stenkula explain how Sweden developed the highest tax-to-GDP ratio in the world, until the beginning of the 2000s. Taxes have profound effects on economic behavior and affect the real economy by distorting choices. Therefore, the tax system is one of society's most fundamental institutions, as it influences many economic decisions, such as labor supply, the amount of savings and entrepreneurial activities. Detailed knowledge on the structure and evolution of taxation is essential to understanding the choices made by individuals and firms, and the effects of these choices on the performance of the overall economy. Swedish Taxation examines the development of taxation in Sweden since 1862.

All important taxes and tax bases are covered: Labor, capital, wealth, inheritance and gift, goods and services, and finally real estate. The completeness and long historical coverage make this a unique set of information. I predict that this book will be the standard reference in all future research involving Swedish taxes."--Lennart Flood, Professor, University of Gothenburg, Sweden "This volume provides a comprehensive overview in English of the entire Swedish tax system, covering the 152 years from 1862 to 2013. The Swedish tax structure has varied enormously over this period, with at least ten major tax reforms, and with marginal tax rates reaching levels rarely seen in any other country. This volume should become a key reference for a wide range of papers studying how taxes affect firm and individual behavior."--Roger H.
