The Tax Commission protects the super rich
Petter Bjerksund and Guttorm Schjelderup: It creates a dynasty effect where wealth accumulates among the few.
The richest 1 per cent pull away from the rest of the population, and this inequality means that we can compare ourselves to countries we would never dream of comparing ourselves to in the past, Petter Bjerksund and Guttorm Schjelderup write about the Norwegian Tax Commission's report. It was delivered to Minister of Finance Trygve Slagsvold Vedum in December.
Their feature article Skatteutvalget skjermer de superrike (in Norwegian) was published in Verdens Gang on 11 January, 2023.
