Sweden just got its first tax-funded harem, states Tino Sanandaji, who is a Swedish National Economist and author.
The Swedish refugee policy continues to create headlines internationally. The reason is not, as it is sometimes said, that other countries intentionally try to smear Sweden, but in many cases the country's policy differs from the norm - both in comparison with other countries and with Sweden's history.
As the case recently reported on, where a newly arrived refugee family consisting of a 57-year-old Syrian man, his three wives and 16 children received three expensive properties Nacka, a rich municipality in the county of Stockholm. The municipality bought three rental apartments to the man and his harem, and since the apartments are located in one of Sweden's most exclusive residential areas, the purchase price totaled to SEK 14 million. The unusual family constellation also gets about SEK 100,000 ($12,300) a month in total contributions and benefits.
Nacka municipality defends these expensive solutions with that the government is forcing them to accept refugees and that there is a housing shortage. However, the sense of justice is put to the test, and many people are also provoked by the municipalities outbidding their own citizens in the housing market. And that a polygamous immigrant man is awarded several apartments in a luxury area that ordinary people only can dream about.
It may be surprising that Sweden allows polygamy marriages, even though polygamy is illegal in the country, but such are the rules when the marriages have been entered into in other countries, before the migration. Today there are about 300 polygamous families officially registered by the Swedish Tax Agency, and in addition, according to media reports, around 130 child marriages. That taxpayers are forced to accept and, moreover, fund polygamy and child marriages, is one of the reasons why the Swedish refugee policy continues to create headlines internationally.
