Moving around in Germany - transportation
The transport system in Germany is all about quality, reliability, punctuality and respectability. It is considered one of the best in Europe. The quality of the pavement is simply the top. Besides usual autobahns, cities and provinces are interconnected by railways and bus routes. Many travelers prefer to have transport by their side and rent a car. Driving the highway is free. In some major German cities, one-way car rent is allowed. It is worth considering that the price of gasoline in the country is quite high, so you should calculate the budget well. Before you go on a journey by car, you need to review the rules of the road, because German law has its own regulations.
Economy roadmap of Germany
Thanks to the fact that a three-tier budget system operates in Germany, one can clearly follow the development of the economy. The income tax in the country is progressive; it makes from 19 to 45%. VAT for today is 19%. The budget revenues for the past years were, in average, about $1.7 trillion; the country's expenditures are about 1.59 trillion dollars. The public debt of Germany is 61% of GDP. Despite the progressing indicators of the country's overall economy, unemployment has been rising in Germany since the beginning of the 21st century. This is especially evident in the eastern part of the country. This is largely due to the increase in social payments. The GDP per capita for 2010 is $ 37 432.
