    How else can they afford it? Do they charge 30% tax?
    Well, state universities generally have much lower rates for residents. They just charge out of state students extra.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    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.

    Pretty sure that if you are an English citizen, and you can qualify to go to Oxford, you go for free.

    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!

    No extra social fees?
    I know that's the case here. Pretty similar. High tax + social fees equal about 50% of the pay.

    yeah, that's how income is calculated here, half of the amount you see on your... financial report or whatever

    Social fees?!?! Haha! Socialist fees is what you mean! Socializing socialist socialized fees. We know. Like Mario says, you are just trying to create another socialized socialist police state that restricts our freedoms with your so-called "social" fees! Commie go home!

    I would think that it's double what you see on your pay check that is tax and social fees.
    Of course, you have to pay tax for your income, too. Like 30% or so.

    "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.

    Nothing wrong with socialism, it just doesn't work if the govt can't control its spending. But then neither does any other economic system. Personally I think national socialism is the way to go.

    What country is that anyways? Just so I know to avoid ever working there.

    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? =)
