National social expenditures of Queensland

Postby RedAurora » February 12th 2013, 4:12 am

After making more research into social democratic nations, specifically Sweden and Denmark, and taking note of their national social expenditures and income taxes, I've decided to change some of QLD's existing statistics:

1. Welfare expenditure, excluding education, as percentage of GDP: was 17.5 percent, changed to 26.6 percent
2. Welfare expenditure, including education, as percentage of GDP: was 24 percent, changed to 35.3 percent
3. Maximum income tax: was 40 percent, changed to 52 percent
4. Corporate tax: was 28 percent, changed to 32 percent

Basically, on the Esping-Andersen index, I've moved Queensland from "liberal" to "social democratic". :) Yes, I do know that Australia and New Zealand, like the US, have liberal governments & this could be unrealistic to do so. Well... let's call it an experiment by the government of Queensland. ;)

These rates will, in roleplay, have been established in 1990s as an experiment to find whether Queensland would benefit from the Nordic model. :)

The goal is to see the changes in the living standards, unemployment rates, GDP, and the percentage in poverty over a period of fifty years under a welfare state.

Meaning, this experiment will conclude in 2040s, and statistics will show whether the nation has improved or deteriorated overall. Then, the government of QLD will decide whether to continue the socialist policies. :)
