    Compared with the US, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Switzerland and indeed even France the UK looks to be pretty poor.

    Another important fact to consider is that we work relatively long hours compared to the rest of the developed West, whereas the real wages are not as rewarding.

    Why do you think that is, and how do you feel about that? Have you ever considered working abroad after graduation?
