The makers of economic policies in the Republic of Macedonia justify the new tax policies with the need to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor, businessmen and managers claim that it will punish the successful ones, while former finance ministers say that we only listen to the rich in the public, who oppose the changes because they are protecting their interests.
