Apparently there is more of a money taboo in England than in the States
Meh, maybe/maybe not. Perhaps it has more to do with the particular company you keep.
Yeah, I have no idea whether or not thats true seeing as I mostly know English people but apparently according to athropologist Kate Fox it becomes more obvious in business meetings, where English people become very squeamish about discussing fees and costs compared to Americans. I don't mean to imply that I think Americans sit round discussing each other's finances (unless its online on a personal finance forum
), I'm sure there is lots of variation within cultures as well as between them.
