America is maybe the best country to live in, if you look only at the populous nations, nations of 100.000.000 and up. If you restrict it like that,
you put it against Brazil, China, Japan etc. It might come second to japan though. Its not fair to compare America to a country like Sweden or
Finland. Of course such a small country will have a better standard of living. On each company you have a totem pole, where at the bottom you find
those whom work on an assembly line. A country like sweden has much of the leadership and designers in their own country, while those at the bottom of
a company like ikea are probably outside Sweden. Same goes for Germany. America does its share of outsourcing too, but I bet when a car is assembled
in America, many of the parts come from America, where people work for little money down the totem pole, while Germany exports poverty elsewhere.
