A groundbreaking study by Just Facts has discovered that after accounting for all income, charity, and non-cash welfare benefits like subsidized housing and food stamps, the poorest 20 percent of Americans consume more goods and services than the national averages for all people in most affluent countries. This includes the majority of countries in the prestigious Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), including its European members. In other words, if the US “poor” were a nation, it would be one of the world’s richest.
Many times we review life from the perspective of our own lens. We look out and see our neighbors, sports stars, cars, and houses that we covet. We think how much better life could be – only if – instead of give thanks for the simple blessing of simply waking up and having another day. The truth is that the US is so economically exceptional that the poorest 20 percent of Americans are richer than many of the world’s most affluent nations.
