Itīs called Nordic capitalism. My own simplified version of it goes like this:

In every town there is a large jar in the center of the city. For every financial transaction that is being made you have to put x amount of the transferred money into the jar. There are a team of people managing the jar, and letīs say that someone needs something and they canīt afford it. They go to jar and ask for some money. It could be anything, maybe some Vino that thinks heīs a woman trapped in a mans body or something. After pointing out his needs, he gets some money from the jar to go and have a surgery to transform his man parts into lady parts.

Gotta love it

The long version (and possibly more correct version) you can find here:

I'm Swedish and really appreciate that the Swedish government kept taxes down on cars and not followed the trend of the other Scandinavian countries. Fuel is heavily taxed anyway so if you drive a thirsty car you still get penalized! Feel sorry for our neighbors that get hammered both when u buy the car and then when u drive it!

You're not the only one, living in a country with insaine taxes on cars :-)

The GT3 in Denmark cost around 3 million DKK // 552.170,95 $ + options... The local Porsche Dealership has a brand new GT3 with carbon ceramic brakes, clubsport package etc for sale at 3.525.477 DKK // 648.888,66 $

The listed trackday price on 1.285.467 DKK is without taxes, so you can only drive it on tracks, not in public.

And just to mention our fuel price, it's around 2,50 $ pr. litre

"so you can only drive it on tracks, not in public"

Wrong, my GT3 is for public roads - That is, if I get it back :-)

Please read what I wrote again ;-) " The listed trackday price on 1.285.467 DKK is without taxes, so you can only drive it on tracks, not in public."

If you buy the car without taxes (On the picture, listed as "trackday price" you can't drive it in public, it's not even registrered :-)

You can of course drive the car fully legal on the road, if you buy the car for the full asking price with taxes :-) Or you can use a danish term called "flexleasing" but even by that, you still have to buy the car without taxes and still pay a monthly fee of at least 5000$ for licence plates the 6-8 month a year, you will properbly use it :-)

suddenly obamaeconomics and calif taxation sound pretty good.

The flexleasing model sounds interesting, we donīt have it over here. Could you send me a link where I could find some information about this?

Yes. Is that just his intuition?

No, he said that they know where the problem is and will take care of it right away. He said it was some kind of gasket that leaked oil on the headers or something similar
