Most of the laws about money, jobs, and taxes are only there so that a some people can make really good money off them. This explains the high tax/gas prices, and the reason why you need education for jobs that don't require education. And to control these things are the job of the government. And every government is dishonest in some way, no matter how high the quality of life in a country is.
And the whole thing about the "economy crisis". Its not made by the normal people, but by the government, or really rich people. I don't know much about "the economy" because im a little boy, but I say that you should study the whole ecnomy cirsis, 'cause I think that there is a massive money oppurtunity in there somewhere.
