If you actually wanted to reduce inequality, wouldn\’t you use the tax and benefit systems which actually do reduce inequality?

  1. Yes when we talk about tax and redistribution its important to recognise that alot of tax is only a transfer with no overall redistributive effect.
    The Swedish system is in fact less redistributive than ours

  2. The thing about tax is that inequality is the last thing you want to use extortion on as it only increases inequality.

    The best thing to use extortion on is externalities, such as land monopolies etc.
