Stereotypes in Europe – hardest working, most corrupt

Among the usual questions about attitudes to the euro and the European Union, people in eight nations (Britain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Poland and Spain) were asked which country in the European Union is the hardest-working 다운로드.

The Greeks ignored the obvious answer (Germany) and instead nominated themselves. (The other seven nations all plumped for Germany, as the table shows.) Yet Greek perception is not quite as misaligned with reality as it seems m3u8 ts download. Greece does actually work the longest hours in Europe…However, as any economist will tell you, working longer does not equate with higher productivity, and Greece’s productivity is relatively low 시크릿쥬쥬 12기 다운로드.

82% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Queen Elizabeth II

As Britain prepares to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne, the sovereign’s popularity in the United States is at a 15-year high — 82% of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the queen in a CNN/ORC poll released Friday 동방 비상천칙 다운로드.

That’s a 35-point jump from 1997, when her favorable rating stood at 47%. That was the year Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris.

The British Monarchy Is Rich But Gives It All Away

The Queen is one of the richest ladies in England, worth over £7 billion (pounds) from the property she owns.

Yet, due to an Act of Parliament from the 1700s, she gives it all away 에이핑크 노래 다운로드. Over £200 million every year, in fact, this year it was £230 million.

In return she receives about £40 million, most of which she returns to the State for official functions to include paying staff salaries, maintaining estates, and hosting around 50,000 people every year 버츄얼dj.

All in all, it means that she donates £2 and 60 pence to every person in the UK.

A pretty cool deal, which makes it all the more strange that most think she is a freeloader 다운로드. I think the common perception is that she is broke, borrowing money, and wasting taxpayer dollars.

This couldn’t be further from the truth 온디스크 무제한 다운로드. She even opted to pay taxes on this stipend in 1992 로그인.

Can you imagine giving away hundreds of millions of dollars to only get 20% back, and then offer to give even more back through taxes?

You can read the full story on this here, check out the property she owns which makes her so wealthy, or learn about her various stipends 다운로드.

It helps to remember that back in the day, the king was typically the richest person in the kingdom. Money was the source of his power and required to rule 스카이캐슬 다운로드. In fact, the most problematic kings in history were the poor ones, relying on others, in debt, and forced into awkward/bad situations…
