In Denmark as a software developer you start at around $7k a month after you finish your education, and can earn as much as $15k a month for standard developers or software engineers which is pretty decent i'd say

simply not true. You can earn $15k (108000DKK) per month if you're a freelancer. But not as an employee unless you're CTO or similar. Most fresh grads earn around $5500

There are alot of deductibles and ways to avoid tax and AMB such as pensions and other things, but yeah we are the most heavily taxed country in the world at the moment thanks to our current socialist government.

you should actually appreciate it, you guys have everything covered no matter what happens. I have lived in Denmark and believe me when I say so from a eastern european country. There are very few countries which have so many benefits that actually function. In most countries all the tax money disappears now matter how much or little u pay :)

Not everything is black and white, you can appreciate some social security while thinking that taxes are too high and money could be spent better. Denmark also had all of that 10-20 years ago but taxes were lower.

Yes, I agree. But that wasn't the point. The point was - as someone who has lived in multiple countries (including Denmark) and comes from a pretty corrupt and not-so-well-developed country regarding social and economical benefits, I would like to make the danes know that they really should appreciate the system they have there cause there are very few countries that have things developed in such a comfortable and supporting way. And - of course every country has it's flaws and weaknesses, but it's never bad to appreciate the benefits you have.

I tend to agree but there is an exorbitant amount of money being spent in the state. Many estimates say we could be paying 5-10% less in taxes overall and still manage the exact same welfare if no money was being wasted.

All organizations are wasteful, the really big ones are more wasteful. I'm sure we can all point to things which we think are wasteful in our state, but things aren't bad at all. Like for example you could argues it was a waste that we as a nation spend money on getting the Tour de France to Denmark, but it brought joy to lots of people and one can really use the same arguments on just about anything. Now let me be clear - it is not like we should not call for the money being spend to be spend smarter, however I think saving 5-10% on waste is unrealistic since how would you even do that. Like what is it that isn't needed?

In the first year of our current governments statehood there was hired an additional 40.000 people in the public sector. At least half of those are what is called "cold hands" that don't enrich the welfare state one bit. If you are unaware of what isn't needed in the country with the worlds largest public sector (per capita) then you haven't researched the subject for even 5 minutes. Also tour de france does more than "Bring joy to people", it attracts alot of tourists to the country and is good for the marketing of the country. It is an investment, not needless spending Also, when i say wasteful i mean in terms of economy. Private corporations and especially large ones are very good at minimazing said wastefulness as that is what needs to be done to grow the organization. This does not apply to the public sector

Private companies first. I promise you there is lots of waste in said companies, it is just that they aren't nearly as open about what goes on since they are private and don't have to. You'll sometimes hear about how a company invested in product X which failed to sell, or how a company bought another company only to later quietly sell of that acquisition at a huge loss. And as for the Tour de France here is a challenge, show me one study that bring even reasonable forecasts that say the investment will bring a profit. Finally as for those 40.000 - not sure about the number, but lets just use that. For sure not everyone was needed, however during Covid there was thousands of extra people needed to handle all the extra tasks - testing and vaccinating requires more than just the people which hold the swap sticks and syringes.

aside from public schools (which are mostly underfunded) and public hospitals (which are mostly underfunded with way too long wait lines and nurses literally striking for better pay) I personally dont think I've gotten much out of that money the police here is a joke, every week theres a new corruption case, billions of tax kroner go to irrelevant cultural projects that barely anyone use + bureaucracy and the public sector (literally 30% of the entire working population) and honestly it's not even a question of left or right wing for me, it's just a flawed system and its been like this throughout numerous governments

I have a very hard time recognizing what you list. "mostly underfunded" as compared to where? Police is a joke? Crime levels here are really low, we have the least corruption in the world (look it up), what irrelevant cultural projects are those? Seems to me you suffer from a total lack of understanding of what goes on and what the money goes to, like for example with education in Denmark not only being free but people being paid to study that then means we have a really high level of education - something that is part of why the Danish economy is so strong. No system is perfect, but the social democratic systems we and the other Nordic countries have is the best there is. Look at the world happiness index, the transparency international studies, the gini index... in just about every study we are at or near where you wanna be.

mostly underfunded as in the vast majority of schools have completely outdated maps and history books, not enough money for extra teachers, smaller schools having to shut down left and right forcing kids from villages to travel further to bigger schools that are in most cases already too filled - it's literally been made fun of for years that top politicans will tell people to keep their kids in public schools while they put their own kids in private schools; what a strange coincidence and education is NOT free, it's funded by taxes - theres a huge difference and yes, the police here is a joke I can't even remember the last time I saw an officer walking around in the streets, but they sure as shit have plenty of police officers ready to write ur a ticket and making sure u dont have any weed in ur pockets, at the same time u wont get any help if u call the police and tell them ur bike was stolen or ur house was robbed for less than 100.000kr. also in most cases they will happily lie to u and tell u if u record them they can charge with some made up law which is illegal btw, and if u feel unsatisfied with ur encounter u can complain to DUP who are managed by former police officers? how big of a joke is that? and I literally don't give two shits about what statistics and indices say these last couple of months have been plenty proof that Denmark is extremely corrupt; the government and it's support parties not wanting to look into the mink scandal, the major of Aalborg accepting bribes, minister of food has been caught using his minister credit card for private transactions, a union boss was found to have pulled 3.7 million kr into his own pockets from the union, minister of culture just spent half a mil on a trip to sillicon valley to hand over a letter that was already sent months prior + no one were even there to receive it and she spent an extra day driving a leased car around the coastline lmao matter of fact it seems to me that u suffer from a total lack of looking around u, I never said Denmark was terrible but it's very clear that we are paying way too much for our social services and a great example of that is looking at how the people in charge spend that money I like certain aspects of this model - like u mentioned i.e. SU, I think it's a wonderful system - but dont fucking tell me that this is the best when its clearly not, #294 Canada literally has almost all of the same perks as Denmark, but at the fraction of the price and ofc they also have political issues and corruption cases but it's at a much smaller scale

no, there is a difference between the nordics and scandinavia. Scandinavia is Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Scandinavia does not include the territories "we" own/owned such as Greenland, Faroe Islands and Iceland, and not finland either. "The Nordics" however, contains Finland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland, and sometimes in people from Estonia's wildest dreams, Estonia.
2022-07-07 06:32
It depends on wether you are talking about the "Scandinavian Peninsula" which excludes Denmark and some people add Finland Or the Cultural region which is Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

I don't even really want to argue, because this is kinda silly. If you'd look little further on the Wikipedia page, they explain why: i.gyazo.com/cfada89c699213d038325922c306.. USAGE is not whether it's factually correct or not, it's how people think it is. In this case most people simply don't know enough to distinguish the Nordics from Scandinavia. This is why I'm telling people, including you who think a quick glance on Wikipedia tells the truth behind thousands years or history. The reason we don't include the other countries is not because we're petty, but because the history with wars, alliances, royal intrigues and very importantly, language, is something we only share with each other: Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

It's easy to be rich in India , just clear the Engineering entrance exams with a rank under 300 , get master's degree in computer science, get a job in a top it company and done. You are richer than most of the population in India. Although clearing the entrance is very difficult.

If you want real advice ill give you some If you have a master's degree in computer science you can remove essentially all worries about getting a VISA. Denmark is currently in a massive workforce crisis, which is why i would suggest you should apply in Denmark. The field that's been hit the hardest is anything related to IT. Just any work with IT like software development, online security etc. you get the point. Even if you only speak english. Most of the work is done in english anyway so all co-workers also speak english. Denmark is not a cheap country, quite the contrary. However more expensive countries to live in also have higher pay checks, that's why it's more expensive. My brother is actually a fresh graduate and he is earning 35.000 DKK or roughly 5k USD with only 1 year of experience. When he get's more experience he is expected to increase significantly aswell. About temperature, Denmark is the most consistent of the 3 countries but not cold. Our winters are most commonly between 10 and -5 degrees celsius on average. And summer is like 18-25 degrees most commonly. Spring and Fall it's proper cold too 10-20 degrees leaning more towards 10 then 20.

Thats just false, almost 70% of Americans are middle class, nice completely incorrect assumption you made. America’s middle class was just much better back then. High taxes was never a thing either. It was just how the structure of Economic changed during the 70/80s. Most to blame are the tax cuts for the rich and companies from Reagan. It made them dominate the market and create income inequality. Still, it is not to be exaggerated like your claim. There is still a strong middle class, but not as dominant decades ago

Exaggerated media headlines will skew your vision on a particular topic. I can tell you that of course that this exist, no ones denying that, but it has been so exaggerated. Media loves to create big headlines so it gets your attention. Why would they report good/normal news? Because it wont get clicks and they wont make money. Its really fucked, but some reliable sources are academic articles regarding such topics, they take research and evidence on multiple sources.

Then again you meddling in every war is no recipe for success either.. Its a tough one because the fear is if you let go then everything you build thus far will collapse but imo you are getting played by russia and china, west is incompetent, weak & unprepared for any serious cirtumstance such as global recession or war. The rest of the world will revolt against you, UK and France, all considered to be the Empires. You rely on others for your quality of life, greenies have made it real difficult for you to exctact more from your soil, public policy is also anti energy that isnt renewable, but u need first dependable energy, and cheap. When you have that and you diversify it then you can invest in the 'future' energy stuff. Unfortunately people believe China and its alies (brics) and those idiots from imf & wef. Its all about survival man, Putin is not crazy he is playing chess against you, russia has always been autocratic, its too big to be ruled by the simpletons, nobody wants this war but it has started. USA and EU went too deep in ukraine, trying to sway them away from russia influence and such. For Russua Ukraine is very important because many ethnic russians, very important strategic & economic partner, buffer against nato which was anti-soviet but became anti-russian.

Flair doesn't check out, stop crying. Maybe it is hard to not cry though f you live in a 3rd world like the united states of assfuckers. Only 50% of the population has health insurance covered by jobs but you still have to pay 18% of $6227 for just you or 30% of $15,754 for your family every year. The average grant a student gets is $5100/year and the total cost of going to your public in-state college is $26000/year. Now I don't know if they just teach you how to hide from the school shootout bound to happen or if they even teach you simple math because if they don't then let me tell you that 26000-5000=21000, the cost that I said earlier. And that is just the cost of your in-state college. The total of out-of-state colleges is 44k/year and private colleges 55k/year. Typical 'murican defending everything about their country thinking that it's actually a decent place to live, keep coping.
