Have you considered that the majority of Americans own cars, big screen tv's, cellphones? That few starve? How many countries in the world can you name with similar stats? Americans don't have to be #1 in everything, just have a decent life for most. The system you support will never give that to us but you think it will bring prosperity to everyone. Not so and has never been so. Marx was wrong.Standards of living havent risen since b4 carter.
