Ed Conway is commenting on inheritance tax in The Times. He refers to research by Mikael Elinder who is affiliated to IFN, and more: "Having dug through years of Swedish data, they found that inheritance directly reduced the wealth gini coefficient — the most widely-followed measure of  inequality — by a whopping 6 per cent, about the same as the impact of a big stock market crash."
