It 2004 the Swedish inheritance tax was abolished by a unanimous riksdag (parliament). How did it happen? How come all political parties in parliament – from the conservative right to the socialist left – agreed on its demise?
This book tells the history of the tax, its abolishment and what consequences it had on Swedish business owners and Swedish business. It also takes a broader perspective and looks out to Europe and the world, proving that Sweden is far from as alone in refraining from taxing inheritance.
