Tax Rankings Of OECD Nations

Check out the table at the bottom of this National Post article by William Watson for tax levels of the OECD nations in the years 1965 and 2000:

Canada's tax ratio is currently 35.8% of GDP, just a little under the OECD average (38.8%). In terms of rankings, we've actually fallen a bit, to 14th. The United States is second last, eight spots behind us, with only Japan behind it. Ten countries are above 40%, and five (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Belgium and France) are above 45%.
