Tax and misery

For some weekend contemplation, thanks to the quirky PanAsianBiz blog for pointing us to this excellent chart which links tax burden to misery (click on it to see it bigger, the details are really interesting). Pity the French and the Belgians. China ranks at number three although the official tax burden and the amount actually paid there are far from being the same thing:

India ranks much further down the chart than I would have expected where Hong Kong and Singapore proudly prop up the best spots at the bottom of the tax misery table.
