Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Swedish parliamentarians earn €4000 per month and ministers earn €8000. At least the minister's pay is mega-rich in my book.

You're kidding, right? A family of four earning 8,000 Euros per month, pre tax, is right on the borderline of qualifying for apartments specially reserved for moderate income families here in NYC or its inner suburbs, i.e at roughly 120% of the median.  Housing and taxes are that much lower low in Sweden?
