Tax burden Italy: OECD data

The OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) has communicated the information contained in the preliminary estimates for last year, according to which in terms of tax burden Italy has the third step of the podium, a result that Italians would have preferred not to take home.

Italy is thus able to bypass the Belgium because of an increase in the tax burden from 43.3% of gross domestic product in 2008 to 43.5% in 2009. First of Italy for 2009 are thus, only Denmark with 48.2% and Sweden with 46.4%.

Bel Paese is up to the black shirt also with regard to youth employment. According to data published by the OECD, in fact, Italy is the second lowest among the 33 member countries as only 21.7% of young people between 15 and 24 years old is busy, against an OECD average of 40.2 %. Behind Italy's only Hungary with 18.1%.

As if that were not enough, moreover, Italy also has the lowest rate of employment among young graduates and the highest percentage of young people called "false self", ie young Italians who are self-employed without employees. In the latter case, in particular, the percentage is 10% against an average of 3% in the EU.

According to data published by the OECD also shows that in Italy among the employed 44.4% have precarious employment, and 18.8% worked part time, while among the unemployed over 40% are out of work for a long time and 15.9% do not study and do not work.
