Also interesting is page 3 where there is an illustration that the most equal of the developed societies do not have highly progressive tax regimes. They do have high consumption taxes and high levels of transfers.

The chart ignores the fact that pre-tax income range is lower in those states so less progressive tax is acceptable
Sweden pre=tax gini – 0.426. UK, 0.456. Switzerland, 0.409. Denmark, 0.416.
Don’t really see it myself.
