Having said that, I do recognize that in some other countries - especially the wealthier developed northern European ones - the citizens enjoy a very high standard of living and get better vacation time, health care, retirement options, and most of all: live in safer and cleaner cities - than we do. Having traveled around the world to both "Third World" countries and developed nations I cannot ignore the fact in a few other countries the quality of life is not only as good as ours, but better.
