This is something to keep in mind whenever EU masterminds and geniuses get together to solve refugee problems that they themselves have created.

In this way a potential population capacity of the European Union and of each Member State has been estimated. The density distribution has been calculated by dividing the total European Union density capacity with each Member State’s individual capacity (only positive capacities have been included in the calculation).
Including the population of each Member State as a criterion can have several impacts on the quotas of the Member State. Since GDP per capita and density have been used as criteria, there
is no factor to reflect the size of the Member States, and population has therefore been added as a third criterion. Alternatively total GDP (GDP/capita x population) could have been used, but this would not have allowed for variations in the weights to GDP/capita and population. The population distribution below describes the share of EU population in each Member State as of
