Dumbass solution: Move to another country.

In 1980, the American rich and middle class and most of the poor had higher incomes than their counterparts almost anywhere in the world. But incomes for the middle class and poor in the United States have since been growing more slowly than elsewhere.

The findings are striking because the most commonly cited economic statistics — such as per capita gross domestic product — continue to show that the United States has maintained its lead as the world’s richest large country. But those numbers are averages, which do not capture the distribution of income. With a big share of recent income gains in this country flowing to a relatively small slice of high-earning households, most Americans are not keeping pace with their counterparts around the world.

“The idea that the median American has so much more income than the middle class in all other parts of the world is not true these days,” saidLawrence Katz, a Harvard economist who is not associated with LIS. “In 1960, we were massively richer than anyone else. In 1980, we were richer. In the 1990s, we were still richer.”

That is no longer the case, Professor Katz added.

I have been subjected to this since the 60's

Welcome to the mind numbing phenomena of the "America, Love it or Leave it" crowd.

Good thing we have citizens like Bundy and friends to stand up and say, "Hey wait a minute this isn't right"

As I've posted several times on here, we're one of the few countries that is honest about Infant mortality which knocks us down (we count the birth as viable the moment the child is born and takes a breath whereas most don't start the clock until after an hour or even a day and we include premies). So I don't accept the rating on that one. There are some others I disagree with but oh well.
