Only trouble is the excessive greed in the developing nations will cause them to reach the rich nations current status much quicker. It took years for the rot in American to reach the point it is at. Greed will drive the local economy here to that point in under ten years.

Thank you so much for this thought provoking article. I am an American expat., living and teaching in South Korea. Almost daily, I am stumped with the vast differences between our two cultures. And without getting into them all right here, (as if you’re not aware of them), it is incredibly difficult to attempt to explain to their inquisitive minds how and why the U.S. is so “seemingly” wealthy – especially when I know the U.S. is a house of cards and perhaps on the verge of collapse. Of course there are many dynamics we cannot cover here, but the fact is that the U.S. has been hit hard by the global recession. The fact is that if the U.S. were a company, it would have been bankrupt and out of business long ago!
