Umm, you're mostly being compared to first world countries unless you count the likes of Sweden and Japan as third world countries. Even if you drop the third world countries the US would still be trailing many European countries and developed nations.

That's because we haven't really tried it.

We don't truly have a "free" market system here either. Government has its hands all over it.

Not to hijack but according to the bet between Matty and Saden (if that's still on) Saden is not allowed to reach 3000 until training camp starts.
