Re: The World's Happiest Countries
Makes sense. Your points however make me wonder how the USA managed squeak into the top ten.
Standard of living
-Declining for the majority. (cost of living going up, quality of living going down)
-Slowly being subverted(though moving quicker in recent years)
Extended social services
-The Health care bill is already being picked apart in the senate. It has a lot of flaws, and required serious tweaking to be feasible. It is a good start though, and now I don't see it lasting much longer with a republican majority.
-Education in the states is also on the decline. I'm sure there is a list around of our rankings in various subjects. I cannot imagine they are favorable. There is also little assistance in the way of local or fed gov programs helping to pay for education.
