Finally an article in English about the labor policies in Denmark! This could be a good model to help Sweden (and even more Germany) out of high unemployment rates. laugh.gif

To finance this generous safety net, Danes pay very high income taxes of up to 60%.


Any solution that involves a 60% income tax is not a good solution.

Sixty percent?

How does that work, then? Seems like far too seriously much for me! I thought Swedish taxes were ridiculous.

Sometimes I wish I knew more about Economics. Not often; just sometimes. Like now.

The funny thing is that the experts in economics are wrong a lot. So their theories doesn't always work.

No, no. Not keen to stir Michael Hutchence`s long stagnant porridge I`m afraid.

Also, it might "rub off" on me an urge to name our child something hideous like "Tigerlily".
