I saw a thread asking this of Conservative policies, and I thought I's ask it of Liberal policies. Are there any places worldwide with liberal policies in place that are thriving? It seems most bigger cities are heavily Liberal, and with them come higher crime rates, more pverty, higher unemployment, etc etc.

Liberal European countries like Germany and England outperform America.
They have smaller nation debts, less poverty, they live longer, take longer vacations, are cleaner, ex.ex.

Canada, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway right off the top of my head. Strong economies, lower debt, lower homicide rates, lower infant mortality rates than us. Ans more cost-effective healthcare.

New England? Seen what kind of shape Rhode Island is in lately? And the Democrat governor in Connecticut can't raise taxes fast enough.

I always went by debt-to-gdp.

America's debt-to-gdp is 107%.
England's debt-to-gdp is 88%.
Germany's debt-to-gdp is 83%.

List of countries by public debt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Which is worse "debt per capita" or "debt-to-gdp" ??
(I don't know, perhaps I was wrong.)
