I want to know where Kurt's country is so we can have a look at how little he actually spends on education, transport, social security etc.

To go back to a game relevant thread, there is a poll on allowing us to vary the percentage of money raised by taxation and direct private contributions to be spent on health, education etc.

Despite me disagreeing with the bonkers (and immoral) ideology espoused by neoliberals, there is a fair point behind Kurt's original message within the game context. The point is that there is a bias in the game, I would say however it is a "Continental Western European Capitalist" model bias- (which assumes in the matter of healthcare for example there is a mix of private and state money via a "social insurance system", from my perspective this is too "Capitalist" a model, from Kurt's too "Socialist"). The point is that if this poll suggestion is implimented it will allow us to test the three funding systems out, 100% private, 100% state, or any combination of the two. Indeed one could even vary this betweeen the services, e.g. stipulate that you have a 100% state health system but 100% private transport system.

Is the person who started this poll active in this thread?
