Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But should we also look at the actual incomes earned by the, say, lower 10% in each of these countries, and maybe other deciles as well?  Probably some cost of living factor would need to be considered.  Because one question is where are the poor better off, where are they worse off?

I agree the question of income distribution is also valuable, but it would seem that we have to look at both.
