OECD Better Life Index

Other countries where you'll have a good chance of becoming rich are Switzerland, Singapore, UAE, Australia, Canada....all much better than Denmark.

This guy can talk all he wants, he doesn't know what he's talking about.
In the USA you pay for everything. They have greater social benefits not having to pay out as much. My post was that the easiest to get rich is Norway, not Denmark. Denmark is best to do business in - even Forbes say so. You are now the second not to read the post properly or not watch the vid then comment.
Quality of life:
1. Finland — 90.09.
2. Canada — 89.49.
3. Denmark — 89.39.
4. Australia — 89.13.
5. Switzerland — 88.87.
6. Sweden — 88.80.
7. Norway — 88.70.
8. Netherlands — 88.65.
9. United Kingdom — 88.58.
T-10. New Zealand — 88.45.
T-10. Iceland — 88.45.

Standard of living is rarely used these days being outdated, as it tended to measure consumer goods. Most people have all those these days in most counties, so that is an outdated metric. Quality of life is more realistic.

It is much easier to become rich in Norway, a socialist state, than the USA or China. You, and many others, wrote mainly opinion, I prefer facts.

That’s because, unlike the US, every Tom dick and Harry isn’t allowed to immigrate to Denmark.

How shocking that a homogenous Scandinavian country with citizens that all share the same culture, ideals, and race would be so prosperous.

Denmark (with Sweden and Norway), is poster child for anti-immigration and Hitler’s ultimate goal of blonde hair blue eyed people. Congrats on your racist utopia.

USA is the easiest to become rich. If you can't make it here, you can't make it anywhere.

Norway is capitalist and they are a large oil economy with a small population....yes, you are rich if you are born on top of an oil field.

You also only praise the most white countries of the world....I suspect racism is the driver more than anything.

The foreign born people in the Nordics is about the same percentage-wise as the rest of western Europe. Most people in the Nordics are not blond haired. But they do have a very high quality of life.

You suspect wrong. Norway created a sovereign wealth fund that promotes social & environmental benefits (the highest take up of EVs in the world) and education & training to get people into enterprise. The Norwegian government does not give money away, they have to work for it. They are preparing for when the oil is no longer there, which Thatcher in the UK did not do. It is easier to get rich there than anywhere else.

Wow.....we've been listening to informed people recite a series of numbers from different sources. They don't all lead in the same direction, but unlike you, these people actually provide substantiation for their opinion.

This is the problem with debate on this forum. Some people aren't interesting in listening to facts or analyzing data.

They are simply wooden-headed. This poster has probably been told by the people around him all his life that America is "best" in all respects. Therefore, any information he receives to the contrary is simply wrong.

Arguments with some here are simply a waste of time.

If everyone is "rich", then no one is.

100 years ago $1,000 was a lot of money.

Today it's pocket change for many.
