The U.S. ranks 23 on a list of 183 countries based on 18 indicators that measure progress for youth ages 15 to 29. All of the top nine countries are in Europe, with Japan rounding out the top 10. Read more here: www.mcclatchydc.com...=cpy


Well, looks like those "lazy, complaining, and free loading" Millennials may actually have a point when the complain there are no opportunities (jobs) out there. The US came in between #22 Spain and #24 Chile. Being #23 doesn't seem to be a good thing, like our #37 in health care out comes, behind countries Like Columbia.

But I digress, does Trump have a valid point to his tariffs to encourage manufacturing jobs to locate and stay in the US? I have heard very little from Hillary regarding this, wonder why?

With our leaders refusing to deal with issues like high college costs, high health care costs, and too large to fail (anti-trust), I say good luck to the next president. I see permanent temp jobs, multiple part time jobs with low/min wage pay. I worked multiple part time jobs back in the 1990's but there seems to be a bad change. There are very few "good" jobs out there. We don't want a country of poor renters that serve the oligarchy for life.

I do agree that the later generations have it worse than the older generations for instance the housing bubbles in both US and Sweden. But I think this statistics is crap and do not give a fair objective view. As a Swede I think Sweden is placed to high compared to Norway for instance. People go to Norway for the job market when they are unemployed in Sweden to get the higher salaries. Also Finland should be above Sweden.

But obama says that the economy is great and unemployment is way down..
Is he lying or just wrong?

Trump "might"try to fix this problem. Hillary has no clue how.

I'm not surprised at all.

The US is also not doing well in infant mortality rates, we rank at 58th globally according to the CIA World Fact Book - After Croatia (#57) and before Serbia (5.87 deaths per 1,000 births). Fascinating and somewhat scary at the same time.

The U.S. doesn`t seem to be #1 in anything anymore, I wonder if this how the start of the fall of the roman empire began?
People just don`t want to admit that the U.S. isn`t number 1 anymore even when the proof is right there in black and white.

How are those infant mortality stats collected? Some countries do not record a live birth until the child has survived its first year while some like the US record a live birth if there is even one breath outside the womb. Obviously, such differences in how different countries choose to decide what a live birth is will give different results.

Because in most high income countries you have to jump through hoops to get a firearm. That's like comparing shark attack victims from coastal communities to those that are inland.

Now if you were to give every citizen a handgun in those countries what do you think the outcome would be?

Ah but you fail to say that 80% of the crimes are victimless and 75% of those in the corrections system are just on probation.

The US is still number 1 in military spending and incarceration. (Both per capita and overall inmates)
