    Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Ireland..........not doing so badly. Low debt levels and kicking US butt economically.

    Someone planted a tree a long time ago so I can sit in the shade.

    Yeah, just don't talk to the average citizen, or compare their lifestyle to that of their amaerican counterpart. It's not bad if your in the "rich" class there, maybe they should be taxed more to improve the poverty levels.

    After their debt is cleared away, lenders can hardly wait to start loaning them money again.

    That is the story of capitalism. Some investors get burned and others move right in to profit from their troubles.
    Yes, lets all get right into Venezuela.

    Living in inner city USA is no picnic either.

    Crime and drugs are the products of poverty.

    Opportunity to change is a little better in the USA than those other countries you mentioned I think. Also, given the choice, having been in most of those countries, I think I'd chose the USA over any of the others as well however, as I keep pointing out, we're not in any of those countries Sags.

    It's a point you seem to keep missing. Most of your "studies", examples, and complaints seem to be about the USA. Maybe you'd be more happy debating on the boggleheads forum as this forum tries to stick with Canadian issues.

    Or a poverty stricken trailer park.

    Crime is when people feel they don't have better options.

    There are solutions, and the involve a combination of social and individual interventions. Handouts isn't at the top of the list though.
