The Nordic countries are a very homogeneous society while the USA is very diverse, so they are two completely different situations and cannot be treated the same way

You can not compare a group of nations amounting to approximately 25,700,000 people with a similar economic model that differs from the secondary element which contains some 320.000,000 people, especially with the economic diversity and economic difference between the two.

And before you HURR DURR AMERIFAT me, I'm a Ukrainian native, American immigrant, born in Keiv and raised in Odessa until the mid 1990s when I moved to and completed grades 8-12 in the United States. I visit Ukraine every year, and have been to nearly every nation in Europe over the years. I may not be an Economic professor, a Political Scientist, or anything (professionally) in that area, but I'd like to think I have a well rounded knowledge in the area.

The United States has the highest GPD in the world currently at about 16 billion GDP.
They ALSO spend the most on education in the world at about $810 billion. With a population of 320 million, 27% are currently enrolled in school. That means about 86.4 million students re currently enrolled in school, but that does not necessarily mean PUBLIC school. All said and done with all numbers done, the US government expends an average of $11,467 per student in the public school system. How much does Finland spend?

$7,500 per student, though this number might be somewhat outdated

Why do they produce better scores? Less restrictive schooling. Less diverse, less low-income areas per person. More relaxed. That would be my guess.

TL;DR: Shitty, biased and graph without context is shitty, and facts need to dictate issues.

I will admit freely that they certainly have a MUCH better school system than us, but this graph without any background knowledge is shit.

Murifat middle class Republican here: It's about earning your worth. If I work hard then I can pay my loans be fine. If I build a successful college I'm entitled to offer my service of education at a price I see fit. I earned my money and right to keep my money and not have it taxed away to someone that failed multiple times. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?
#76 to #70 - willysbilly (07/20/2013) [-]
Except that success is rarely dependent upon the sweat on one man's brow. Life isn't a fair landscape or game where some people fail and some people win based on their own grit and determination. I won;t pretend that taxation is executed perfectly or that some people don;t abuse the system, but most of the time your money isn't going to someone who failed on their own accord, but to somebody whose life has left them disadvantaged. My brother costs taxpayers about $100,000 a year because he is dirt poor and needs treatment for highly malignant pancreatic cancer. Did he fail?

I'm sorry, is Scandinavia home to hundreds of millions of people?
No?
I'm sorry then, I guess the same system won't work here.

A) Russia is bigger than the US
B) China has more peopel in it than the US

Explain to me please how the US has an army thats bigger than both of those countries combined, + 12 OTHER COUNTRIES.
you guys arent the only ones with enemies, the russians have enemies too.

You are, however, a country that gets a shitload of it taxes from wasting money on their army. And the funny part is people of the US dont even get it, that theyve got this ridiculous economical situation where they need to make guns for their country to get enough taxes to survive, guns that are not needed at all, as not a single nation in the world even THINKS about going to war with you. "BUT AMERICANS HAVE ENEMIES WE NEED TO BE SAFE" yes, thats what happens when you bomb countries, people die, and their successors hate you. Part of the whole war-based-economy. Deal with it.

Well we are the richest country on earth and the reason why spend so much on defense compared to other countries is because of our huge wealth when compared to our GDP our spending on the military isn't as huge as it seems and when we joined NATO all the countries agreed to spend 2% of their GDP on defense only the us and another country did that so NATO is riding off of the us and when comparing the the level of education people come all over to attend a prestigious us school I've never heard anyone mention wanting to attend a Scandinavian school

Enjoying that Trillion dollar debt. while being rich?
#1 - crazyolitis (07/19/2013) [+] (10 replies)
I never really understood why the American government wants to make money off students. In the end, it's more profitable to invest in the young people than to take their money right away. I mean think about it: Students go to college and get a degree. They are able to get a high-end job, meaning they earn more money and can be taxed more. Then, the goverment has got more money for all sorts of things.

Also, I've heard that, unless you get a university grade education, you can basically only flip burgers. To any Americans: is that true? Legitimate question.
#72 - anonymous (07/20/2013) [+] (6 replies)
Have you ever compared the populations of the two countries? America has over 300 million citizens, with a great deal of racial desegregation. Any single Scandinavian country has a tiny population compared to America's, and they are whiter than the cast of any pre-2000s family sitcom.

Enjoy your half ass health care and education because you're so poor you can't pay off loans. We have better things to do like land on the moon and create an empire

The 3rd largest currently. Behind Russia and Canada. And only marginally over China.
And not even the largest to ever exist by a long shot.
In the space race, the US only beat Russia to the moon, Communist Russia was the first to do everything else. But they respect you for that. They even have a statue of Neil Armstrong coming.
Actually, pretty much the only thing you guys have going for you, is national debt to China. Infant mortality rates. Military funding to invade democracy into other countries. And a large border that Canada drew the northern line of for you.
Oh, you also fund Silicon Valley where you invite intelligent people from all over the world and pay them with work Visa's to make sure you keep sounding like the leading edge of technology. Even though most of those people aren't American.

So....You're a country built from and on nothing but failure and debt. Congratulations.

As a European I can tell you very simply why this fantastic system wouldn't work in the US. Taxes. There is nothing Americans love to bitch about more than taxes, they see it as a control on their lives, no matter what benefits they get from paying them, they simply see them as evil. It annoys the fuck out of me how stupid people are that they cannot see the benefit of a high tax system backed up by a well organised social progression organisation is. As soon as they hear taxes all they talk about is: "Huur durr obama socialist big brother watching u hurrr commie!" They are simply too irrational to be able to see the benefit of said system.

I'm not even American and this shit pisses me off.

Aside from none of this "anti-American" content being funny, it's absolutely getting out of hand, as well. I have no idea what you guys have against the USA, but get the pineapple out of your ass and lighten up. You're all acting as if whatever country you belong to is full of angels, peace, unity, and love -- while America is the shithole of the planet. It really sounds like unwarranted hatred due to jealousy.

On the topic of schooling: where are the Nordic universities on the list of Top Universities? Because I've checked the list, and none of those countries even crack the top 50. The Karolinska Institute, Sweden, is 62 on the list, and is the first appearance by a "Nordic University" on the rankings. Oh, the list I checked was from Time magazine, the UK Time, as well. Check any website that has rankings, tell how many out of the top 10 are from the USA -- tell me how many are from the Nords.

I'm Canadian, and I love my country -- I think it's one of the best in the world. But I'm not arrogant enough to assume that my country is better than another in every aspect and category. Each country has its triumphs and its shortcomings.

And to those who mindlessly bash America: you are absolutely, and utterly, ignorant -- and should either educate yourself on the country that has spearheaded countless innovations and findings, or else shut up and stop posting -- because you just look like a butthurt asshole.

Political, Governmental, and Corporate Corruption.

Parasitic Capitalism, Inflation, Deficits, and Reduced Rights.

Unemployment, Shrinking Job Markets, Pill Pushing and Pharmaceutical/Medical Industry Corruption.

Poisoned Food, Carcinogens and chemicals banned in other countries, lobbying, and...

I could keep going.

When is it going to be enough?

Bitch I can't fucking afford an education, and am being butt fucked in this job market.

tl;dr Most people are too floundered trying to get by to be able to do anything, much less change the bureaucracy and deep routed corruption/flaws decades in the making, the rest or ignorant, misinformed, or brainwashed.

Nothing good comes out of a statement that starts with "Seriously Americans". Why can't you other countries leave us the fuck alone?
