Too expensive to make a bunch of sensors for really simple shit, considering doctors are needed most in rural, poor areas.

That said, as a doctor, i admit medicine is trash. A waste of time. So shit nobody hires doctors, and where they are needed nobody is willing to pay them. They are profitable in the US only because it's impossible to go through the curriculum wall that residency schools demand, since education itself is the bigger business and average students mean bad advertising.

Really depends where you are. Here on average its 55-60k starting (barely enough to live in big cities) to 130k with high position jobs. Before I left the field I promised if I stayed I'd never be one of those corporate execs flying around all day with no personal life

If your degree is business administration rather than actually marketing you have a wide variety of business fields you're qualified enough for. I just used my BSc to start the IT MSc so I wouldn't say it was a huge waste of money, just a waste of time
>>
>>109881331
No marketing is inherently garbage compared to a regular business degree. You do more maths and statistics stuff than in marketing and do more economic courses.

Someone besides Gothenburg's isolated experiment needs to push for a six hour workday again, the issue largely being if I'm working for four hours businesses will do all they can to pay me for only four and essentially make overtime mandatory to make a enough money to live on.

In spite of oppressive taxation and state intervention, not because of it.

Of course it would be. That doesn't mean that it makes sense to steal from people and give it to niggers or to waste it on utter nonsense.

And in Sweden/Germanic Europe in general you live like an actual human even with a low income, here you're in an undeveloped soulless shithole with a plywood house or the same thing but a tacky mansion.

>And in Sweden/Germanic Europe in general you live like an actual human even with a low income
You can live like an animal in a pen, in an oppressive system which serves nothing but itself and whatever fetishes manifest within its corrupt institutions. Lately, it seems to want to commit suicide though. It's actually pretty awful.

>here you're in an undeveloped soulless shithole with a plywood house or the same thing but a tacky mansion. I remember multiple times a swede posting pictures of Malmö going "look how bad it is here omg" and it was still nicer than even good parts of our cities
It's not better than the good parts of your cities. Not even by a long shot. Malmö has some OK parts but that doesn't excuse it. That city is going bankrupt by the way, like most other Swedish cities. The system has cancer and it's not going to stop. When the next financial crisis hits us, shit will get austere.

I mean if you consider this plus living in a cardboard house that needs a car to get anywhere because the entire country is copy pasted stripmalls and highways comfortable or a high quality of life you might actually have brain damage. The built up cities are also built exclusively for cars

I've spent a lot of time in America. There is no greater country on this Earth. Your strip malls aren't what makes it great though. You can come here and gawk at the picturesque buildings all you want (those that survived anyway; most were torn down to make room for commieblocks in the 1960s). When the honeymoon is over and reality sets in, it's not so sweet anymore when you realize that the freedoms you once took for granted are gone and all that you're left with is a shoebox apartment in a commie block far outside the historical center, and an income already meager looted by oppressive taxation that you can't support a family on. I've seen it happen. Don't project your fantasies so hard. There's nothing wrong with a bit of romanticism, but romantic notions are supposed to be about what you want life to be, not delusions of what life is.

You're accusing me of doing exactly what you're doing, the difference at the end of the day again is you're still one of the best countries in the world while everything here is extremely rundown and undeveloped because every retard was convinced they needed a house in the suburbs, it was only recently we realized this was an awful way to live. Legitimately I don't know what the fuck is making you think it's so great here besides your own self deprecation; I tried to convince myself for years Europe wasn't better and everyone is just cherrypicking and lying but after countless visits and endless research I was wrong

It's fucking shit here, you're just bored of your life and think any change is an upgrade
>>
>>109883833
I'm talking about the deeper issues and you keep talking about surface level phenomenons, related to aesthetics mostly. The aesthetics aren't enough. Besides, Sweden has lots of extremely ugly places, all over. Trust me: living in some peripheral commieblock is a much worse life than life in any of your typical suburbs. Again, do not confuse the honeymoon for the life.

Sweden is OK in many ways, for now. It is certainly better than most of the world, but that is true for all western countries. We're living on borrowed time and dime though. That's the main problem. The sheepish nature of the tax livestock that we have in this country who support this awful system doesn't make it any better. I'll say this for our national character though: we are innovative and we are entrepreneurial. That's what kept us afloat. There is a reason that basically all the great companies and entrepreneurs that we do produce leave for America (or other less oppressive countries) sooner or later though. Ours is not the kind of system you want; one that forces good people out. That causes stagnation and drives away wealth and various kinds of capital (neither of which is not the same as money). It's happened time and time again. Any "Swedish" company you could think of has already left or been sold to foreign interests, long ago. They only retain a Swedish brand, like Volvo famously does, despite no longer being Swedish. I guess I shouldn't fault you for your thinking though, because Sweden does have a strong brand (again though: for the time being), as do many other countries in Europe.

Life in America, to a much greater extent than it is here, is what you make of it. Swedes don't know the meaning of the word "liberty". Literally, there is no Swedish word for liberty. Swedes don't understand the concept.

>>109884307
Businesses are not abstract monoliths; they are extensions of people. Businesses and the people who run and operate them the creators of wealth. When you drive them away, you're driving away wealth. That's what we've been doing since the 1970s. It got a little better since the policies of the dark days of the 70s and 80s, after the our financial crisis in the 1990s (which was caused by policies that are typically lauded by left-leaning people in America). But not by much. It's still awful and drives away every major player we produce.

Sweden is a country where you are oppressively taxed at 53% (on average), where 37% of households consist of one person in a small flat, where freedom of speech is a lie, where you can't defend your life and property from invaders that your government has invited to your home, and where you can't even buy a god damned beer after 3 P.M. on a Saturday because the government store is closed. (Yes, the government owns and operates all liquor stores here; supermarkets and such are not allowed to sell real beer).

Honestly that seems like a pretty good idea. Your work experience will look good and the fact you lived in a foreign country and will speak the language will be key.

I know but I want to extend my manchildhood a bit more. Not only that I got a meme certificate that's the reason I make 50k that overlapped so much with the requirements for a associates I said might as well. At least I'm not like those retards who go straight to college without knowing what they want to do and switch major 2-3 times and get into debt and then go "muh college debts. Muh Bernie anders"
