The Institute of Economic and Social Studies in Slovakia (INESS) finds that the Price of the State per person is rising every year, this time the number hitting EUR 6326. This is a EUR 169 increase compared to last year. Another figure to keep an eye on is the state debt calculated per person: this time it is EUR 8213, which is also higher than in previous years. Despite ever increasing income, the state is unable to implement a balanced budget. Apart from the online calculator, where anyone can find out their own price of the state, INESS continues its long lasting cooperation with SME daily and thanks to them the bill for government services has reached tens of thousands of households once again.
