The American Standard Of Living!

Where does the United States stand in relation to other countries in standard of Living? Here’s our placement.

UN Development Index 15th

Human Poverty Index 16th

The Economist’s Quality of Life Index 13th

This is not very impressive. We have an incredible amount of money, power and resources in this nation – 13th at best?

How did this happen?

In 1973, we were number one.
