That's an interesting chart Camaleon - I like the way that graduates in Switzerland expect to get more than the natural average - talk about sense of entitlement
I love/hate the Economist.
I love the fact that they give in depth coverage of areas of the world most other newspapers hardly acknowledge.
I hate their smug, entitled, lecturing tone that doesn't so much suggest "solutions" to the world's problems as imply that if the Economist's own vision isn't followed verbatim then we're all going to hell in a handbasket.
A very interesting chart. Didn't realise there was so much variation in average salary between the different countries, also a lot of variation in men's/women's expectations throughout Europe, and not always what I would have thought.
Take Ireland, average wage 25% higher than Britain, same for men and women, even though women's expectations are lower. Similar scenario in Italy but with a lower average, so it can't all be about women getting what they expect!
One of the things I find interesting about the Economist article is the way the blurb at the top talks about the comparisons between men and women and gives breakdowns for the things where they are talking about what men want, but when they talk about the factors that women want more (companies with strong corporate responsibility) they don't provide a breakdown, they go straight into another factor that men want more. It's typical of how business takes men's concerns more seriously than women's.
