Both the United States and Canada have much lower tax to GDP ratios compared to other OECD countries. This can be a sign of either:
(A) low tax rates
(B) small GDP per capita
(C) some combination of (A) and (B)
By looking at the GDP per capita map below, can you figure out where the top bottom 10 countries on that list fall?
The US, Canada, Australia, Greece, Switzerland, Ireland and Japan are going to fall into Camp A.
Mexico, Chile, and Turkey are going to fall into to Camp B.
Korea is going to fall into Camp C.
