intercst: "I wonder if RPI can recall tele's degree."

I wonder when intercst will realize that if folks make and spend $50K in Canada, everything they buy has a 15-19% tax.

Somehow, my math says that 19% tax on $50K income means you pay $9000 in VAT taxes a year.

And that is 'cheaper'? That is on top of income tax levels the same in both Canada and France.

So, if intercst lived in Canada, spent, say $70,000 a year, he'd have the 'privilege' of giving the Canadaian government nearly $14,000 to educate those doctors who provide 'cheaper' health care.

I wonder if his degree would be in the same jeopardy?

No wonder there are so many renters in EU....buying a house with a 15-19% VAT on top of the high house prices has got to really hurt!....and once you have one, you sure don't want to have to move to accept a better job in another city!

Maybe that is why EU unemployment usually runs double the USA?
