A new study has found that families in Britain pay some of the highest tax rates in the developed world, compared to other nations like Ireland, Canada and Chile.

The research shows that British households with two adults and two children, with one earner, are paying around 73 percent of their income into tax, which is made up mostly of income tax, national insurance contributions and loss of certain benefits.

https://i2.wp.com/images.mises.org/ww1pp1hat.jpgSocial policy charity Christian Action Research and Education CARE said the data meant such a household would take home 27p for every £1 earned, describing Britain as in the “worst place to facilitate the creation of an aspiration nation.”

“Our tax system remains very individualistic and insensitive to family responsibility, compared to those of comparable OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries,” CARE chief executive said,

The report authors say one-earner families and lone parents in Britain are also worse off in the current tax system than they were 20 years ago. 

By comparison, families in Ireland pay 64 percent tax, while Canadians pay 61 percent.

In Germany, families pay about 40 percent tax while the figure for France is only 20 percent.

According to CARE’s research, Chilean families with one earner pay only 7 percent, the lowest in the developed world.

    Occupy is not calling for more taxes or for communism. Wall Street hired public relations firms to send in actors to the Occupy protests to scream about communism to hand the corporate media an easy way to demonize what is essentially an anti-Fascist movement.

    • 21st Century Wire Says:

      Yes, this is true, but where can we find a clear Occupy platform? I am having trouble zeroing in on what Occupy is calling for exactly.

      That said, many of the Occupiers in London I have spoke to recently are still calling for a “ROBIN HOOD TAX”, the problem here is many Occupiers are still focused on the state/taxes for solving societies ills.

    • Desmond Dekker Says:

      If Occupy were really anti-fascist, it would educate its followers about the world’s most powerful, privately owned corporation — The Bank for International Settlements (BIS). But Occupy does not do that because it was created to the fulfill the collectivist agenda that the central bankers behind the BIS aggressively seek.

    Occupy’s first protest was organized by Ad Busters magazine, which is partially funded by central banker George Soros. Occupy’s first newspaper was organized and created by two communists who work for the CIA, and flown in from other countries for the job. Occupy goes after the 1% while absolutely IGNORING the central bankers who are the top 0.0001%, since they organized Occupy and paid for it.

  5. James Mackie Says:

    I would like to see an examination of the social background of these occupy protesters. In my experience, having met protesters from various groups, in particular Greenpeace, I’ve found the activists and paid employees are coming from the same class strata as those causing these economic issues in the first place. You wont find many of the underclass or working class in these groups because they can’t afford to be there or are not welcome in these elite protest groups. Why aren’t they welcome? Perhaps it’s because the establishment don’t want a real protest but would rather have some twee, ineffectual protest which makes the real victims of economic warfare believe somebody is doing something.
