Sweden has even higher income taxes than the US. Most European countries do, in order to fund all their social services. It's the standard tax the rich to give to the poor mentality.Its sad to see for someone making the hypothetical 1Mil Dollars, they actually only end up getting about half. To me that doesnt make much sense. Its not like that person costs the government more in public services to 'take care of'. Hm. Wonder how it works for Pewdiepie in Sweden and his high earnings. That is a very wealthy country.
