european university rates prices are nothing compared to american ones

And I do a LOT of cabinet shopping, so I KNOW what I'm talking about.

    1. You're in Europe, but you're not a European country :)

    2. Actually, the UK is a European country. It is not, however, a part of continental Europe, which is the large landmass sometimes referred to as the "mainland".

      Pedantry at its finest!

    3. At this juncture I have to point out that only Brits ever talk of "continental Europe" or "mainland" as opposed to..what exactly? "Insular Europe?"

    5. Go to Scotland. University is free there (as long as you are not from England, and that is not a joke).

  2. It's not about the price of education, but about who's got access to education. Just like who's got access to health care, retirement pensions and so no...

  7. Already happening in Argentina since a long time ago, A lot of young people from neighbouring countries come to study here (also helps that we all speak the same language).
    We have a lot of bad things going on, but free education and healthcare is something I'm proud of. :)

  8. In Germany education is completely for free. You even get money from the government when your parents haven't got enough money to help you with your rent and your other bills (it's called 'Bafög'). Besides we have free healthcare and a huge social system to help for example jobless people :) It's expensive but great.

    1. All true, except I live in Berlin and as a freelancer I definitely don't have free healthcare...

    2. Indeed, healthcare is never free. The achievement here is guaranteed(you have a right to it), universal(covers everyone) and affordable healthcare that is more or less financed solidarily, often, but not always, tax based. Unfortunately this often also means it is compulsory, for various good and not so good reasons.

  9. Holland is 1.900 for the best college education, and 1.100 for "the worst"
