    Good God! The country run by the socialist/marxist/Kenyan Muslim beat out the Chinese. Wonder how this will be spun by the right

      The tallest midget in the room bpuharic? Of the entire group highlighted here only Canada seems to be doing better than the US and look at how they leapt from 20th to 4th in the rank. So it is not that the US is doing better but that the others are doing worse. Just read the article above.

        The others are doing worse? By definition that means we’re doing better.

        Not bad for the socialist, eh?

          So by your logic bpuharic, if a patient is bleeding half a pint of blood while others are bleeding three quarters of a pint, it means the former is doing much better.

    What a difference a few years can make. In
    2009 at the depth of the US financial crisis, a lot of people (not me,
    but those with insufficient knowledge of how the world works) thought
    that the era of US is over and a new world order beacons.
    But all the pretensions of all other contenders to the throne are
    steadily being blown away. China has just hit a wall and is about to
    crash and burn. EUrocrats are realizing that they are not as smart as
    they once thought they were. Uppity leaders from India to Brazil to
    Turkey are suddenly finding out that they had gotten a bit too ahead of
    themselves and the road to great powerdom can be quite bumpy. Amidst all
    the wreckage one nation is standing tall, United States of America
