I don't think Australia is a good example, from listening to retuned emigrants the price of everything is through the roof.Black pill alert!
As someone who has lived and worked in countries like Germany, UK, and Australia. I am constantly perplexed at why there isn't riots at the expense of things in Ireland.
Healthcare is basically 60 euro to even smile at a doctor, if there is a health issue then you need to take out a loan! Private care is 100 euro per month, but you still need to pay 40 euro per visit.
Car insurance & road tax ridiculous, enough said.
Rent and house prices inflated beyond belief. How do people afford to live in Ireland? Do most live hand to mouth?
Healthcare costs here are a little confusing, doctors visits are expensive, but huge amounts of people have the medical or doctor only card even people earning quite good money.
The insurance companies are totally taking the piss and need to be tackled by government. The amount of business's adversely affected by
huge insurance costs is a disgrace and I believe will lead to job losses.
