The values and attitudes of high-income earners in Sweden
This report focuses on how Swedish high-income earners view the development towards increasing inequality in Sweden. There are several reasons why high-income earners’ opinions and political values are important to study. One is that, in recent decades, there have been changes to Swedish redistributive policies that favour high-income earners. It is therefore interesting to know more about high-income earners’ views on equality and social responsibility. Another important reason is that there is a lack of qualitative research on groups with power and influence in society. The report is based on 25 interviews with members of this group carried out in 2019, and survey data from the European Social Survey (ESS, 2008, 2012 and 2016) and the European Survey of Income and Living Conditions.
