    Wow, that was a fairly bad move. Does this top what has happened in the UK? Actually, it probably wouldn't, but I'd still feel that I was wronged!

    We don't publish everyone's income, but to be honest it sounds like a excellent idea, especially for the rich.

    I can see how the Italians won't like this. The wife can find out how much the husband earns :D

    (Yeah, sexist I know, but Italy is still a very sexist country)

    What do soap operas have to do with what actually happens in the US? :confused:

    What private citizens earn is really none our business.

    What people on the public teat earn is.

    Burglars approve of this transparency. It makes their profession more efficient in that it enables them to target their resources towards jobs likely to bring the best yields.

    Exactly, this sort of information should remain confidential. :)

    that was stupid. I really do not want my income to be easy to access. Big time considering the people who leave near me make a hell of a lot less than me.

    This was a bad move on the part of the Italian tax agency.

    This has been done in Finland for a long time. It's not a big deal at all.

    Different values.

    Oh, and I'd add the salaries paid by charitable organisations to the public teat ones.
