Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated a brief article from Document.no about the cost of importing non-Western immigrants into Norway. He includes these remarks:
As you can see, the numbers are astronomical. This madness is not sustainable long-term, but those in power don’t really seem to worry too much about that. After all, they are given lavish salaries and extravagant pension plans which are out of reach for the average Norwegian taxpayer. So it’s full steam ahead until we all go over the cliff.
Mind you, the costs haven’t reached Swedish levels yet, which are estimated to be somewhere around the SeK 105 billion mark.
Notice also that the number mentioned in this article only encompasses the costs of those non-Western immigrants that arrived in 2012 (at least that is how I interpret the data given).
The translated article:
Non-Western immigration is unprofitable
Finansavisen [Norwegian financial newspaper] has gone through figures released by SSB [Norwegian Bureau of Statistics] and concludes that each non-Western immigrant, on average, costs Norwegian society NoK 4.1 million ($700,000).
The sums are astronomical, especially when considering that in 2012 alone, 15,400 non-Western immigrants arrived in Norway.
When Sigrun Vågeng was the director of NHO [The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise] she presented a study which concluded that the entirety of Norwegian oil-generated wealth would disappear if this non-profitable immigration wasn’t halted. Back then the story was mostly ignored. In the meantime several years have passed, and today the numbers are even higher. Even so the MSM and politicians keep describing the official immigration policy as strict.
The figure is NoK 4.1 million:
This figure includes all taxable incomes minus public expenditures,” according to Erlend Holmøy, senior researcher for SSB.
Based on the approximately 15,400 non-Western immigrants that arrived here in 2012 this means an outlay of NoK 63 billion ($11 billion). This is the equivalent of two foreign aid budgets, or roughly half of the NoK 125 billion ($21 billion) taken from the Norwegian oil fund (wealth fund) that the authorities intend to spend this year.
“The cost of it all will have to be covered by the average Norwegian taxpayer, or it will lead to a reduction in capacity and quality of various publicly funded services,” says Holmøy to Finansavisen
If the non-Western immigration continues on a level equal to 2012, the funding costs will soar to NoK 2,900 billion ($493 billion) in the period between 2015-2100.
