You should show a chart that actually shows how much percentage of each dollar is paid by each country's citizens compared to each other. Here's an eye opener to get you started with.....

And dear Oldshunter : once again i will have to explain it to you
Pamphlet: Income tax Germany 47%
That is total rubbish. Germany has a system of progressive taxation with a maximum of 42%. that again is misleading because in a progressive taxation system noone ever pays the max rate for ALL income only for a part of it
example:
you earn lets say 70.000 € a year
so in a rough example these "ranges" of your income are taxed differently
0-12.000 € TAXFREE
12.000-28000 € starting with as lil as 14% for your 12,001st € and going linearly to around 23 % for your 24000 €
this will linearly grow to max. 42 % for all Euros above 65000 € (note ONLY those above)
So in our example the TOTAL taxrate of a good 70.000 € p.a. income
would be appr. 29 % (NOT included all the stuff you can write off. In our example the guy would end up with around 22%)
The German average taxrate is around 24 % for single persons (and far lower for married couples)

So oldshunter: to post such nonsense in order to tell the "truth about socialistic europe" is clearly grabbing up some ultra-nationalist stuff from your favourite website of misinformation and taking it as true without factchecking.

reading it again i have to correct two things:
from 14%to 23% it is a linear grow of tax rate (correct)
But from 24% to 42% it is NOT linear (as first stated ) but progessivly increasing.

AND: "every fourth car is a BMW." not exactly right, it should be:
"every fourth car is a BMW OR AUDI (which headquarters again 40 km out of Stuttgart!
smiley rest is correct
