I don't buy that argument. U.S. median disposable household income is the second highest in the world. Obviously that would indicate that average U.S. standard of living is higher.
Europe has higher taxes, and thus more infrastructure, so there is that. But we are the world leaders on spending for education and healthcare.
Why do you say that Europeans have a higher standard of living?
