Europe fucking sucks to live in unless you're really loaded. That's why you're unhappy.

The new world is objectively superior in basically every way for day to day living. Australia, NZ, Canada, USA. That's how it is meant to be done.

I'm not even trying to trash Europe. Its an awesome continent and there's just so much to see and do, especially underrated for its natural beauty and outdoors opportunities, but to live and work? Just no. The taxes people pay and the rigidity of their class structure is ridiculous. There is simply no opportunity for normal people. Yea I know the government will make sure you're fed and have a roof over your head and that's all well and good, but there's a real cost to that security and it comes in the form of basically having zero social mobility.

>>1538155
That's the most retarded thing I have ever read. There is a lot more social mobility in Europe than the US. In the US if you are born into a poor family it's much more difficult to become wealthy. In Europe you have a much better chance because the education systems and opportunities are more equal.
>>
>>1538155
What are you talking about? Europe is the best place in the world to be poor or middle class.
>>
>>1538167
Salaries in Europe are really low compared to the US. Here in Germany your average college educated person makes as much after 20 years what someone in the US makes in an entry level position right after college. Paying taxes is horrible and since there were 80 years of no war a good chunk of the population has inheritance like houses for example. For someone with a salary of 40.000€ it is not possible to buy a house or raise a family here and not even possible to make much more money because German salaries generally cap out at 60.000€ if you are not a highly specialized engineer.
>>
>>1538167
There are literally millions of talentless slobs in America, Australia and Canada who are taking home upper-middle class livings while paying an almost insignificant amount in taxes. Just a little doggedness and ingenuity and you can move up.

New Zealand...well...NZ is kind of its own little thing out there in the middle of nowhere.

These kinds of broad statistics dont really work, especially when comparing with the 80's. The fall of the USSR, German reunification and installation of a common market and currency led to an economic boom in Europe for the middle class. It doesn't mean people are more upwardly mobile in Europe. Anyone who has lived in the new and old world sees it plain as day. Europeans are still of this ludicrous mind that they have somehow perfected human society when really what they are doing is reinforcing an immensely immobile class system that serves to just keep the elites in the same positions of power

A few unreplicable circumstances over a twenty year span plus the fact that Europe literally just looted the whole planet for the better part of three centuries, doesn't mean democratic socialism works. Especially when the whole continent continues to kick the austerity can down the road.

So did Sweden. All cash-drains and great losses. Did not benefit the countries mentioned one iota. So the fact stands. The social mobility of the countries mentioned has not been affected by colonialism, nor by the fall of the warzaw pact, not by "democratic socialism" (lel).

Post all the bullshit theories and graphs you want, the proof is in the reality on the ground. The immigrants who want to get into Europe are literal war refugees while the immigrants trying to get into the new world are middle class Europeans.

Again, saying quality of life in Europe has improved with the end of the Warsaw Pact and a reunified Germany plus the establishment of a common market isn't really controversial. You are associating the success of the last thirty years with something that frankly had nothing to do with it.

There's no accounting for the fact that millions of European kids are literally desperate to stay in Canada, Australia and New Zealand while barely any Aussies, Nzers or Canadians want to do anything more than visit Europe or have an OE there. The USA would be the same way except America is smart enough to not give work holiday visas out and invite this plague of street shitting German van people into their country.

Keep desperately trying to post these statistics about America being kind of a shithole. You're not breaking any news to anyone. There's a reason the only people who want to move to Europe are literal boat people with no skills or hope.

Pretty hilarious thread. The US has the worst social mobility of all OECD nations and modern economies(behind the UK). One can't possible buy into the rags-to-riches bullshit. The American Dream is fucking dead. If you are poor or lower middle class in Europe you never have to worry about losing your health care. You never have to worry about becoming homeless and you never have to worry about student loan debts for you and your children. You start out as a poor student and join the workforce as a high income earner without the support of your parents. While in the US you lose your job, then your health care and then your house. Don't get me even started on shit like legacy admissions.

Euros are talking about social mobility within institutions.
Freed education -> Qualification -> Professional, government, or corporate job

But high taxes mean it is difficult for people who don't go through this decades-long education and career path, or who stumble once, or who were never encouraged to study by their working class family and friends, to be start a business. Free market enterprise is the only non-specialist way to become rich.

The irony is that free education requires parents with an educated background to take full advantage of it, and the rigid credentialist class system in Europe is straight out of the 19th century, 100% compatible with the aristocratic systems that came before, because it forces the poor to exhaust themselves with isolated individual initiative in grammar schools while the rich are just as distinguihsed by their privately funded educations, which spoonfed them every step of the way. Achilles and the Tortoise...
>>
>>1540072

1. high taxes have literally nothing to do with enterprise because
1a. your capital is sourced from elsewhere, unless you are already rich
1b. you don't get taxed on expenses, just profit
1c. there are many special provisions for small businesses and startups that lower your effective tax to zero; in fact some initiative even give you subsidies from the state
1d. the effective tax rate is much lower than the nominal one, with careful accounting
2. starting a business is not viable for most people anywhere, stop drinking the kool-aid
3. free market enterprise is bullshit propaganda by people who want to reduce their taxes
4. only uneducated people with a business are those who have a trade shop that they got handed down by their parents
5. you cannot will yourself rich by starting a business, what are you 12? real life is not like that

Literally don't understand how you can be so delusional about life.

Congrats. You have covered just about every way the modern man makes a living. And the European man's child can get a top notch education. The UStainian can not, unless he/she can throw a ball well, or go kill some muslims first. That is why the European kills the Ustanian in social mobility.

As for ease of doing business, just about every European country ranks in the top 30

>3. free market enterprise is bullshit propaganda by people who want to reduce their taxes
I'm kind of baffled that a European can say this when half their union comes from the ex-Soviet bloc. Don't tell me you think they had it right, concentrating economic planning in the hands of a few people who got top marks at school?

>5. you cannot will yourself rich by starting a business, what are you 12?
100K a year, save half, in 20 years you're a millionaire. That's the minimum for "more than middle class," in my view, and it's achievable by small businessmen.

Any physician could do the same, but there's an inherent inefficiency to having to do all of your own income-generating work. A doctor can't delegate his personal skills. A small business owner can delegate - if he can afford to employ people to do the simpler tasks as part of his plan.

>>1540082
What I've described is also applicable to the Soviet Union. Replace "corporation" with "management of large state resources."

I'm not some antiquated anti-communist. It's just that I am obliged to dig up these old bones to provide you with examples of moribund forms of economy.

>As for ease of doing business, just about every European country ranks in the top 30
This isn't a comparison of Europe to Africa. It's a comparison of Europe to the US, more or less.

Bourdieu is a difficult read, but I would recommend you give him a go. University education was originally the preserve of the aristocracy. It was common for younger brothers to become lawyers, doctors, clergymen, officers. Trade was despised and still is.

The sentence is long, so I can understand why your thoughts became so jumbled that you could only call me a Thai angling Rwandan mudflap anal rape victim who is drowsy. First long post ITT.

I am happy that an adequate education has hitherto escaped you. Is it because you are just out of infancy, or because you did not want to kill towelheads to afford tuition?

I am happy that you, after XX posts ad nauseam, still has failed to make a coherent case that A: US has higher social mobility than Europe B: Europe is a die-hard class society akin to the aristocratic systems of yesteryear.

Much like with Trump, we are still waiting for you to win this argument, or at least stop with your exercise in alt-facts post-truth nonsense. Every single post you post is not worth the watts burned to push it through the interwebz. The tiny particles of plastic worn out from your keyboard carry a higher worth than your confused thoughts.

I am guessing you are the one guy that was opinionated about Europe and architecture from months back . Your autistic-to-the-max style is as recognisable as a retinal scan.

Oh boy

Well akchually I started a business with money I saved, which would have been easier and faster with lower taxes
>1b. you don't get taxed on expenses, just profit
Sure but you need profits to grow your business, so growth is stifled by high taxes. OOPS i had $100k left in my account at the end of the year which was earmarked for new equipment and hiring an employee next year but now it's only $50k.
You sound like such a Eurocuck

The post is long, so I can understand why your thoughts once more became jumbled.

Bourdieu wrote a long book about social class, taste, and education in France called "Distinction." This book is long and I couldn't possibly have read it because it's, like, soooo long, I am such big fibber, like omg who do I think I AM?

Accusing me of being someone whose posts I have not read is a good tactic for winning disputes; I would do the same thing if I cared enough.

And yes, I am also that other anon whose posts I have not read.

Additionally, I am that third anon whose posts I have neither read nor heard referred to, the one who refers to turbans as towels.

I am also lying about my name. My name is not in fact Anonymous. This makes my points invalid.

Have I at any point accused you of lying or of being someone else? Oh, of course, I must have done this when I was someone else and I'm just lying about it. You are an utterly contemporary person.

Bourdieu wasn't quite a Marxist, but he was not a believer in the free market. He does not validate other aspects of what I have said, but he illustrates the connection between the professional class and the old aristocracy that I referred to.

Hold on, let me get you a list of every book required to understand social class and economics:
Whoops, I don't care enough to do that.

Nor do I care enough to explain what sarcasm is to a passive-aggressive who should be an expert at it. I reserve lengthy, earnest, approval-seeking explanations of obvious things for when I post on the read it.

Low social mobility in the US = extremely strong class system in the US. By definition. Higher social mobility in Europe = less rigid class society, by definition. You are irrelevant. Goodbye.

If you are a small business owner (under $2 million in revenue) you won't have a C Corporation that pays corporate taxes, you'll have an S Corp that pays pass-through tax at the same rate normal people pay, which is lower than Europe.

You seem like a very angry person, are you OK? Do you not have better things to do?
>>
>>1540199
>normal people pay less than 8.5 - 20% in USistan
Now that is not true. And I've caught you in another cock and bull theory.

>c-corp vs s-corp. 2 million in revenue
Hey genius. We get to choose corporate structures too. But we do not need to wait until 2 million in revenue to reach corporate tax rate. That is an argument FOR the European system and AGAINST the ease of the US one.

>angry.. are you ok?
I am having a whale of a time. Cornering people in a fact-based argument, have them squirm, make them jump from fallacy to fallacy, clutch their straws, drive them before me, and hear the lamentations of their women (lel, as if) is my favourite pastime.

this raging autist has totally ignored Australia and Canada because those two countries rape his argument and leave it on the ground. The initial point of contention was New World vs Old World, this sperg successfully moved the goalposts to just America.

Canada and Australia are infinitely better places to live than Europe and there are absolutely no facts or statistics that indicate otherwise.

Are you saying individual tax rates in Europe are 8.5 to 20%? What? If you make $55k in Germany you're in the 42% tax bracket. In the US it's 22%. Then you've got your like 21% VAT compared to our 0 to 7% sales tax. Ergo, taxes in the US are lower.
I don't even know what points you're trying to make and you think you're winning some argument.

>now let's talk about individual tax rates and not corporate kay guys

We are talking about the relevance of ease of doing business and lower corporate tax rate when it comes to Europe being more socially mobile than Fattistan. Which was a response to your(?) original statement that
>you need profits to grow your business, so growth is stifled by high taxes
>>1540104

TL;DR growth is stifled by high corporate taxes in the US, which helps social mobility rankings to be higher in Europe.

The overall tax intake is also a great help when it comes to educating the populace for free, which is something you lack (your populace, and you personally, specifically)

>>
>>1540233
>at the same rate as individual taxes
And those are already higher than the corporate taxes that Europeans get. Which boils it down to: Taxes stifle US social mobility more than it stifles European social mobility. End of. Killed by your own claim.

I don't really see it, how do higher C Corp taxes stifle the social mobility of the average person when the only C corps are big businesses and none of them pay that tax anyway?
I don't know how corporate taxes work in Europe. If you opened a restaurant or bar or dentist's offfice in Germany for example what kind of tax would you pay on business profits if you were structured as a cirporation? Do you get a special low tax rate for being a business that would save you a lot versus being a wage owner? Because otherwise I don't see how Europe has a lower tax rate in a way that could benefit the average person.

After reading the thread and participating in the argument, what do you think? Could it be that you have been running around half-cocked, fly open, and little droplets of pee spraying everywhere?

Are you this guy? >>1540104
In that case you have shot down your case. Growth and social mobility is stifled for federalcucks because of high corporate taxes. Because as this guy states >>1540072

I'm not trying to be an asshole but I make that right now without a degree in the netherlands. I make 16 euro an hour working in the kitchen of a restaurant as extra hands. Had no experience before applying and got hired.

I am still studying but I live on my own so I need to work 40 hours a week which makes me about ~2500 euro a month. I absolutely hate this country though it's bland and depresing. "post-modern shithole" is correct. Only in the summer is it actually a fun place to be.

Holy shit this makes me realize just how poor Portugal actually is compared to Western Europe. The fact that you actually pointed that out as if it was impressive makes me kinda sad for Portuguese.
>>
>>1540469
Saudade is alright bro. At least you can make some money abroad and buy a rural palace for the same amount of money you get elsewhere. And the local Portuguese food is excellent. And few things beat drinking wine made from your own grapes all year.
>>
This makes me wonder if it might be worth it to make a lot less money in Portugal simply to always have beautiful sun and good atmosphere.

Honestly it might be worth it on health issues over time alone. So what if you make 50% less in Portugal if you enjoy your life 2x as much due to the sun, friendly people and good atmosphere.
>>
>>1540488
Yeah well, you need some kind of foreign online income. Otherwise, if you are in a rural village, the only job you might get is some kind of factory stuff, for 500 euro a month.
Mind you, EU really works here. I saw some old man tending 5 sheep. I bet he got money from Brussels for that.
