What is Volts policy? / The Future of Europe

Economy and taxes

Fair and European

A good economy creates stability and provides opportunities for new people entering into the economy. We have seen a financial crises, a housing bubbles, inflation and negative interest rates. We need to think in new ways in the Danish economy.

  • Differentiated VAT

  • Regulate the banks lending to avoid a new housing bubble.

  • Reduce the interest deduction and eliminate interest-free loans.

  • Increase the tax on cigarettes and alcohol.

  • Denmark should join the banking union to strengthen the control with crossborder financial markets. 

  • We need to revisit our budget law, and improve our macro economic toolkit.

  • We support a european minimum tax on companies that operate in multiple european countries.

  • Reform the ECB and expand its mandate.

See Volt Denmark's policy
  • 01

    Smart State

    An innovative state takes care of its citizens and is at the same time ready with flexible solutions. We will therefore strengthen both our digital AND our human solutions.

  • 02

    Economic rebirth

    In order to meet the challenges of the future, we must rethink the economy in Europe. From the labor market to our monetary and financial policy.

  • 03

    Citizen involvement and democracy

    We want to strengthen the individual citizen's voice in everyday life. It is a failure of democracy if citizens are only listened to at election time.

  • 04

    Social Equality

    Volt wants an equal society where the individual potential can be unleashed, and here Volt wants to take the lead and take greater responsibility.

  • 05

    Global Balance

    The western world is responsible for a large emission of CO2 and therefore we must also be at the forefront of developing solutions.

  • +1

    EU reform

    We have a vision for Europe that guarantees equal access to education, healthcare and social protection and employment opportunities for all. A Europe where citizens have the same rights and can trust that everyone contributes and benefits equally from their commitment.
