Chart of the Day, Feb 22 2010: How the EU is Funded


Very interesting chart here. The EU funding is distributed in an uneven fashion. Germany, currently pays 164 billion euros to the EU, but only receives 78 billion; while in Spain - a nation similiar in size- currently pays 76 billion euros to the EU, but gets 78 billion back.

Actually reminds me a bit of the US, with states like NJ and CT paying much more to the Federal Gov. than they are receiving.
