Chart of the day

If you are reading this blog, you are probably well aware that we have a far lower tax burden than the vast majority of OECD countries.  Freedom!  This also fits in nicely with recent discussions about capitalism in Northern Europe.  You can have free markets and high taxes.  And those high taxes allow for some of the worst features of capitalism to be mitigated by effective redistribution and social welfare policies.   Anyway, Drum with a nice chart.
