I wonder why the Japs are the richest country? Electronics has become cheap. You spend more in 3 months on gas than you would spend in a year on electronics. I think A-hab the Arab does not count all his mulah.
Have you ever been to Japan - would you really want to live there? Those stats are meaningless - their standard of living is mediocre at best. Many of these countries like Japan, Scandanavia enjoy the US citizens funding the UN and military forces for the West for the last 40 years. Hopefully this will come to an end soon - the US workers-pull alot of the weight and don't get 6 week vacations and 36 hour work weeks.
