1. Would you prefer a system of private or public health/education system? Or mixed (like Sweden)?

2. How much should the state contribute to the welfare state? What do you think about self-responsibility?

3. Would you think should your parents work longer? Why? Would you be ready to work longer than 65, why?

4. Are you happy with the welfare state system in your country at the moment? Why?

5. Will you think that in the future there will be a national approach or integrative approach (like the European Union)? What would you consider to be better?
