Whoa, did you just say that 64.3% of the United States' budget goes to welfare?

Let me be specific, 64.3% of the budget that is not otherwise allotted to defense, health care, protection, transportation, pensions, and a few other things. At least, according to my college economics textbook ha.


Which, according to the internet, comes out to 10% of the overall federal spending. Still a large amount though.

Wrong. The biggest outlay is the department of defense. Social Security is second, and welfare is third.

You said besides health care and other things. Do you not consider health care to be part of welfare? If not, then welfare makes up less than 5% of the U.S. total budget. Even then, that's counting lots of different things. In reality, less than 2% of the total budget goes right into people's pockets. Most "welfare" spending is social programs that benefit everyone.

Re: Education Differences Based On Country

Then, if it's not a funding issue, explain why the United States education system is ranked so highly but those within it perform so lowly.

As, I'll admit I don't know much on the issue, as I'm just going off something I'm studying at university currently and the textbooks we're using. If anyone has other information I'm open to it. I know even books can be wrong.

Re: Education Differences Based On Country

Also, education has nothing to do with welfare. College graduates can still be laid off and receive some sort of welfare.

Re: Education Differences Based On Country

The percentage of college graduates who are unemployed is still significantly lower than non-graduates who are unemployed, so there is some correlation.

So what are you trying to say? Improve our education or remove welfare as an incentive?

Re: Education Differences Based On Country

40% of adults in the United States have graduated from college, as opposed to 30% in the United Kingdom.

Just putting that out there.

I am saying that a better educated America would lead to higher employment or more diverse employment, in my opinion.

Mkay, I can deal with that as a good argument for American education. You'd think it'd be higher in the UK with the difference in education costs.

University actually costs a lot in England. It's only free in Scotland.

This is a correlation that will always remain. You can't blame the quality of education on this. Blame social stratification. People who are educated will always seek out jobs, and employers will seek them out.

Didn't they install an education cap of 9,000 last year in England? For native students that is...international costs a lot more from what I've seen looking at studying abroad for the rest of my degree. I didn't know Scotland provided free education either though.

But you aren't only as intelligent as you happen to be when you're born. It's not a genetic trait, at least not entirely. So, with better or more education, couldn't it be argued that the US overall would become a better country?

Yeah, there's a cap at 9,000 (around $12,000.) Nearly every university in the UK, as far as I know, charges the maximum. Despite that only 3 or 4 of them are actually worth paying that for. You can get a better education cheaper in the USA.

My tuition is around $9,000 at a university that's ranked above nearly everything in the U.K. There's obvious exceptions, and I concede that the top U.K. universities are cheaper than the top U.S. universities, but let's be honest: most people will never have a shot at those unis anyway.
