In Kuwait There are no Taxes, but Education and Healthcare are Provided


“The government really takes care of people there. You don’t worry about taxes. The government gives all citizens cash wedding gifts. You get about $12,000 as a wedding gift. Half of it is actually a present from the Emir of Kuwait. He gives you a present. The other half is a non-interest loan. Also, free education up to the university level. Free medical care. If you get sick, and the hospitals in Kuwait cannot take care of you… they will ship you off to Mayo Clinic or wherever you have to go, all expenses paid. They will even pay for your living expenses if you like. That’s why we consider ourselves to be wealthy because we don’t have to worry about these things. … We have 67 percent of the graduates from Kuwait University are women.” ~ Zain Al Subah, on the Oprah Winfrey Show
