Inheritance flows in Switzerland, 1911–2011





The interest in inheritance has recently been revived both in policy debates and in the scientific community.  This article examines policy makers’ prime concern regarding inheritance - the taxation of bequests— one of the most emotionally and ideologically charged areas of public finance.
