USA Not #1 in Health, Family, Income and More: Ranks #29 Among 30 Countries

When someone tells you the United States is the best country in the world to live, ask them on what grounds or with what data do they make this claim. They would not make such a statement if they had all the facts marshalled in the ebook-report summarized in this article. The author looks at, according to Paul Rosenberg, “eight indicators each in seven categories, ranking counties in order along with precise figures for how they score. The seven categories are: health, family, education, income and leisure, freedom and democracy, public order and safety, and generosity. Indicators include things like life expectancy at birth, infant mortality rate, share of income received by richest 10 per cent, years of life lost in injury, etc.”

I live in the Pacific Northwest and recently had conversations with two real estate agents we know. Both were aware that not only are people from dry states moving into our area, so are the Chinese — just as they did in Vancouver when Hong Kong was turned over to China by the British. This is all part of the Migration Trend I have both predicted and described in SR over the last 15 years when I first saw data suggesting it.
