I think the rates are low because the government is already paying for a large part of it. The government just doesn't pay for out of state students.
It's kind of hilarious that people in the US don't want to pay higher taxes, but then spend their entire lives saving hundreds of thousands of dollars so they can send one of their kids to school. Or not, I guess in which case at the end you could say: "We may not be able to afford an eduction for our children, but look at all the consumer junk, cable stations, and extra gas we paid for with all the tax money we saved."
Pure bone-headedness all around.
Faroe Island has a 42% tax rate for regular income, as in workers income, I don't know about buisness' ...
Also, when buying something from close countries like England and Denmark, people usually add 50% to the price since that's about how much extra it'll cost D:
Also, 11 years in school just to get to B level of math isn't too overkill, 11 years take ages you know!
Of course, you have to pay tax for your income, too. Like 30% or so.
And that's part of socialismQuote:
"Social" fees include the money that the state has to pay out when you're sick or don't have a work, among other things, I believe.
*shrug* Perhaps it was the wrong word then, because it translated exactly to what it's called here.
Oh no, you'd love to work here. There is a price, but in return, you get wealth. So to speak.
Where it is... ah, a country far to the north, right east of a country that sells oil and it's a country with hot summers and cold winters. Can you guess where? =)
