Supporting internal demand and income in the short term in a transitory and reversible manner, financing the recovery generously but limited it in time, controlling public debt sustainability, establishing clear legislation to foster certainty and confidence among investors, and maintaining business links with our main commercial partners are some of the proposed initiatives.

"Money, money, money”, sang the legendary band Abba in a far away year 1976, not paper but e-money. Bjorn Ulvaeus, one of its members, suffered a burglary at his son's home in 2006 and led a movement to remove paper money in Sweden. Only in this way would the black market, which allows the sale of stolen objects, disappear. Putting his own convictions into practice, cash is not accepted at the Abba Museum in Stockholm. Keep this in mind if you plan to travel to the Nordic capital.

The government is not providing taxpayers with a possible delay or moratorium in the deadlines for tax return and self-assessments, as other European countries (Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Norway) have already done. In this scenario, a taxpayer who does not have liquidity to assume the corresponding tax burden could only request its postponement if the requirements are met.
