Norway pays $1502, the third place is the Netherlands with benefits of $1413. Yes, the Netherlands is not Scandinavia, but the first two places are still in Scandinavia, and in Denmark the highest unemployment in Europe.

it is Worth noting that in Scandinavia — high taxes, up to half of the income and higher having to pay to the state. Even residents of so-called “free city of Christiania” pay taxes for housing. Christiania originated in 1971 when in one of the districts of Copenhagen’s hippies, and other consistensy captured the vacant house. Supporters of Christiansen talking about a new principle of urban communities, opponents argue widespread drug addiction and street dirt.

In Austria pay 55% of the average income over the last months, the minimum allowance is €825. In Belgium the minimum salary is €995 or 65% of median income in recent months. In the UK the allowance depends on age: up to 25 years £231 over — £292.

A resident of the ghetto, depending on membership of a particular social group, receives monthly from a few dozen to a few hundred dollars. Municipal housing free of charge. Food stamps — free and can be sold at a discount in a special money-changing shops. We have a developed system of grants to study at College or University. However, city University teaches for free. Diploma course, is quoted lower than obtained in the state University or a private University, but good job with him to get you. In Europe, by the way, also there is free education in the famous Sorbonne, for example. Ghetto inhabitant can obtain a grant for the development of the business, if the business opens in the ghetto and work local hired — so the government reduces social tensions.

Having for benefits

other than its own citizens, European States pay benefits to them arriving refugees. And here Northern Europe again ahead of the neighbors. For a family of refugees from two unemployed and three children turns on a monthly basis, according to Eurostat: Finland — €2283, Sweden — €2143, Germany — €1935, Denmark — €1765, France — €1740, Spain — €1520.

A year later, the payments cease. In addition, free public housing, but also — for a limited time. It is faster and tighter integration of immigrants into German society. From the 1990s to mid-2000s was a large flow from Russia and Kazakhstan. Now the number of immigrants decreased significantly.
