In the Media: Gaute Torsvik on Economic Policy and Inequality

In response to an article recently published by politician Nikolai Astrup, OFS affiliate Gaute Torsvik and professor Magne Mogstad published an article in DN pointing out that Astrup is 'not eligible to his own facts on economic inequality'. Further, Torsvik and Mogstad adresses Astrup's incorrect description of a progressive tax system, stating that a tax system is progressive if the share of taxes payed increase with income. Additionally, the article discusses Astrup's interpretation of who owns profit - before reviewing economic policy and inequality.
