Just a thought:
In fact, Stockholm is something of a unicorn factory, producing the second-highest number of billion-dollar tech companies per capita after Silicon Valley. In Sweden overall, there are 20 startups per 1,000 employees, compared to just five in the United States, according to data from the OECD. In the 2018 Bloomberg Innovation Index, Sweden tops the list, second only to South Korea.
Income taxation is so viciously high that the only way to make enough to get out is to start up a business?
Actually, it’s probably that capital gains and corporate taxation are significantly lower than labour income taxation. The same point but with a different gloss perhaps. But an interesting illumination of Spud’s point that income and capital tax rates should be the same, no?
