The Swedish tax on entrepreneurship

Only 12 of Sweden’s 290 municipalities send tax money to the other 278 in a leveling out-system, also called the “Robin Hood tax”. If we compare that list with the ranking of Sweden’s most business friendly municipalities we see a striking correlation. Entrepreneurship-friendly cities are the ones that pay the slackers.

Footnote: A high “ranking” in the Robin Hood tax column indicates being a net payer, the cities ranked lowest are the ones that receive the most from the system.
