In his first major policy speech to an invited audience of SNP party workers and MSPs, he said he had a vision for a Scotland where everyone had the opportunity to get on in the world.
But he admitted: "It is a Scotland paid for by fair taxation - direct taxation in preference to indirect taxation."
He claimed direct income tax would be fairer than the indirect taxes used by Labour such as fuel price hikes and airport taxes. But he refused to give details.
Swinney also outlined plans for a major re-think of party policy in seven key areas - health, education, pensions, poverty, jobs, fuel costs and crime.
But again he refused to give any details.
