From the Business Insider:
The oft heard ‘We’re #1 USA’ is actually #93 on the Gini coefficient (a measure of income equality and in this case household income).
Beaten by #45 Egypt, 82 million people, a failed state which received $2 billion US yearly in US aid, a victim of English and French imperialism.
Beaten by #56 India, 1,241 million people, a failed state with rigid socio-religious castes, a victim of Danish, English, French and Portuguese imperialism.
Beaten by #81 China, 1344 million people, a failed state and the previous sick man of Asia, a victim of American, Austrian, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Russian imperialism.
Beaten by #82 Russia, 142 million people, the failed Soviet empire.
And beaten by #92 Iran, 75 million people, the ‘terrorist nuclear power’, a victim of American, English and Russian imperialism.
So, does that make the USA a failed (or failing) state also?
