My guess is that you are middle class. If you were rich you wouldn't be complaining about golden handshake, because your handshake would be included.
To get the exact same medical insurance you get standard in Finland your family would be paying (assuming there is only 3 of you) 18.000 dollars more a year.
Since you would be paying lower taxes, net change would be your family making about 10.000 a year less.
To get same quality of elementary, middle school and highschool education, you'd have to go to private schools. so for about 12 years your parents would have to pay about 5.000 a year for elementary and middle school, and 8000 a year for highschool.
Then there is fact of private 401k vs. finnish retirement funds. In average middle class person to get same coverage would be paying 2-3k a year more.
So your family is now making 20.000 a year "take home money" less. That is directly reflected in your quality of life. and would probably severely hamper how much they can help you with colledge tuition.
