    I thought both Finland and Estonia had LVT. They just need to knock it into better shape and ramp up the amount they collect, steeply.When I was there in 2006, Tallinn still had masses of empty buildings and vacant sites in and around the city centre, and there was a property boom going on.Finland presumably has LVT or something like it as you don't see vacant sites around.A hefty dose of LVT, accompanied by equally heft cuts in the taxes that are being dodged through these fiddles, sounds overdue.Neighbouring Latvia needs to do the same thing – there are vacant sites and derelict buildings all over the centre of Riga. The smell of land speculation is in the air. I was not impressed with the country.
