We discuss things in a civil way. We deal with one another civilly, rather than have shoot outs like the Wild West. We make transitions in government peacefully, I as opposed to secession and coups that you see in other lands.
It isn't about my petty personal feelings but rather the need to speak about governmental matters in a clear way.
Political discussions today remind me of my first weeks on campus at college. I couldn't believe that Palestinians and Israelis and Turks and Armenians were shouting at each other on campus, yelling. Ethiopians and Eritreans, too.
Are we all civilized or not?
Are you at all aware of the histories regarding the Turks and Armenians? Palestinians and Israelis? Etc.? Are you the Easter Bunny in disguise? You seem to live in a dream world of fuzzy happy love and friendship. Be realistic.

Swords or pistols on the field of honor in Europe or The East, or in The West like in Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid guns or knives Butch? Isn't civilization wonderful?

JBH gets the point across. It may require you to have to rearrange the structural sentences. French is a more definite form of language. One word may represent two words of an English word. French also has less arbitrary meaning to their words and is more precise. That is why international contracts are more often written in French.

Very good Dang. You have proven my point. Sweden’s stability is superior to USA. You do actually read what your copying and pasting. Now do the same for USA and compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. Your concerns of cost of products is comparing apples to oranges.
For example higher cost of rent of 25% takes in the cost of all the social entitlements within all of their real estate. Yes even real estate pays to the social entitlements. USA nope. Weak S.S. and water downed Medicare a wee bit. Giving rise to our Health Care cost us 2 to 7 times as much as these foreign Universal Care Nations.“Price Of Inequality”
Cost of materials are greater because the inequality tax factor, is exhibited in the product manufacturing.
Of that average household income. Note when they average they are closer to the precise individuals income because all of their Universal Health Care and Universal Education, S.S and Larger safety nets for their Unemployment, figures, have been identified. Here in the USA not so. Average earnings here fail to address how much cost these individuals will be experiencing when they factor in Health Care, Education and a weak unemployment safety net.
Distributions of their laborers productivity is far more evenly distributed than here in the USA. Precisely why they experience far less severity in down turns of financial markets as our finances on main street are slammed dunked into the coffers of Wall Streets coffers and the 1%.
Here in the USA we have one family that has an income greater than all of the impoverished individuals combined income. Walmart ! Won’t find such abnormalities in wealth distributions in Sweden. Now how do you think by taking the average earnings of all the impoverished and Walmart would average out to. Now you would consider we have no impoverished or poverty with such an average would you but there it is.
In math when using mere averages one must as well recognize the average mean and the standard deviation mean. Simple average is and does get manipulated with out identifying the distributions of the integrals. Now I’ll have to go back into my archives to find what happens to a family in USA with an impoverished earnings.

Inequality In The USA. Has the highest level among the advanced industrial countries. Comparing to some such as Hungary, Belgium and France which have no significant increases to their inequality. Where in as the USA has been increasing to be more aligned with Iran, Jamaica, Uganda and the Philippines.
GDP does not take into account the measure of inequality. Does not measure the security of its citizens.
All boats rise equally on the rising tide is no longer applicable here in the USA. We have harbors that restrict through manipulation the rising tides. The few affluent yachts at the open end of the harbor suffer no restrictions of significance, equal to the manipulated incoming tide, to the boats in the restricted harbors. Tide dams have been erected to offset the flow of rising tides within the harbors.
Example; Presently USA CEO’s have 200 to 1 ratio in income to the average laborer. Japan as one example has a 16 to 1 ratio. Less than 50 years ago USA had a 30 to 1 ratio. This rising inequality has stimulated additional wanna-be’s executives to seek the same. One example can be found in the UK. The UK’s “High Pay Commission” reported that their top executives were approaching Victorian levels. Presently though they are at the levels of the 1920’s as measured for inequality in laborers’ productivity distributions of wealth.
Sweden, UK and additionally some of the Scandinavian nations and some within the European Union have taken steps to nip this inequality of distributions. Restricting CEO’s pay to a ratio of corporations earnings and out law golden parachutes. Bonuses and gifts as well. There is a provision that allows for parts or all to be circumnavigated if the voters agree. That is, not the voters of the corporation boards but all citizens voters. Sweden passed it in 2012 the others are putting it up for debate and or vote by their citizens.

"Where in as" where did you find this garbage? UGANDA? Where to begin? The European Union is and has been close to collapse. "DESPITE greatly improved financial conditions over the past nine months following the pledge by Mario Draghi, head of the European Central Bank, to do “whatever it takes” to save the single currency, the euro area remains mired in recession. Output declined by 0.2% in the first three months of 2013 from its level late last year, the sixth consecutive quarter of a recession that started in late 2011. GDP rose by just 0.1% in Germany, the biggest economy in the euro area and declined by 0.2% in France, the second biggest. Falls in southern Europe were much bigger, with GDP declining by 0.5% in Italy and Spain and 1.3% in Cyprus.

Forecasts from the European Commission in early May showed annual euro-zone GDP shrinking by 0.4% in 2013, following a contraction of 0.6% in 2012. The economic reverse will be much deeper on the periphery of the single-currency club than in its core. Cyprus will take over from Greece as the worst performer this year as its GDP shrinks by 8.7%(a prediction that could well prove optimistic). The Baltic states will continue to shine. The economy tipped to prosper the most within the 17-country euro area is Estonia’s, whose GDP will rise by 3% in 2013. Within the 27-nation European Union (EU), Latvia which is expected to join the euro next January will be the star performer, with its GDP increasing by 3.8%.

The disparity between core and periphery is particularly stark in labour markets. Unemployment in Germany was just 5.4% of the workforce in March 2013, whereas in Greece and Spain it was around 27%. The gap is even bigger for young people. In Germany the youth jobless rate was 7.6% in March whereas it was 56% in Spain and reached 64% in Greece in February. These figures overstate the blight of youth unemployment because many young people are in full-time education and so do not count as part of the labour force (the denominator of the unemployment rate). But they highlight the disjuncture between northern and southern Europe." Stop reading stats from the 1920's. Quiet chirps from a cricket.

You do realize that you are referring to the EU European Union. UK Sweden and a few others, are not of the EU.
On the EU now that you brought that up. France, original founder of the EU, with the Netherlands are in dissolution to the Belgium EU “Austerity” policies.

Dang you forgot the medical cost discrepancy. Something that can and has destroyed families and total lost of their finical security. Here is one example not from 1920. LOL
Why Obamacare? Only naives of the medical world would question that.“OR” corruptive supporters of austerity.
A sampling of Health Care cost in the USA versus other Nations.
USA avg. cost for an Angiogram $914. Canada’s cost $35 ! Colonoscopy USA $1,185 Switzerland $655 ! USA hip replacement $40,364 Spain $7,731! USA Liptor $124.00 New Zealand $6.00! USA MRI scan $1,121, Netherlands $319!
.Source: 2012 Comparative Price Report by the International Federation of Health Plans. The average prices shown for colonoscopies do NOT include added fees for sedation by an anesthesiologist, a practice common in the United States, but unusual in the rest of the world. The additional charges can increase the cost “significantly.”
Here is a sample of actual colonoscopy cost to some patients in the USA.
Deirdre Yapalater recent colonoscopy in Merrick N.Y. that went smoothly as routine cancer screening can be expected. Nothing found and she was billed $6,385! Which is closer to the norm. Matt Meyer of Keen N.H. colonoscopy bill $7,563.56. Maggie Christ, Chappaqua N.Y. received her bill for colonoscopy $9142.84!
Insurance companies were responsive to those patients charges by increasing their premiums by 10%, rising co-payments and deductibles. Price of quality? Not so, for numerous studies have discovered that Americans do not get better Health Care than the Nations that provide this procedure for less than $1,000 max.
International Federation of Health Plans list the USA as the highest most costly in all of the 21 categories that they investigated. Cost difference significantly larger than that of Nations that have private or national systems for their Health Care. Hip replacement in USA four time that of Switzerland and France. Caesarean section three times of New Zealand or Britain. USA Nasonex for allergies $108, Spain’s price $21. Hospital stays triple that of the rest of the developed nations. Reported from the Commonwealth Fund Foundation in their studies of health policies.
….Colonoscopy moved from the doctors routine examination to surgical atmospheres. More economical scenarios for this procedure is still practiced through out the developed world.
We’ve defaulted to by far, the most expensive option, without much if any data to support it,” said Dr. H. Gilbert Welch, a professor of medicine at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
…“The U.S. just pays providers of health care much more for everything,” said Tom Sackville, chief executive of the health plans federation and a former British health minister.
Obamacare about to take center stage will be addressing these issue as well as many others. Hopefully in time to suppress the growing tide of Medical Tourist seeking the Liberal International Free Trade Markets with their medical competitors.

You and Bill Clinton, Obama's lapdogs. Your medical cost comparisons are old news. "In the developed world, mortality counts and rates tend to emphasize the most common causes of death in older people, because the risk of death increases with age. Because PYLL gives more weight to deaths among younger individuals, it is the favoured metric among those who wish to draw attention to those causes of death that are more common in younger people. Some researchers say that this measurement should be considered by governments when they decide how best to divide up scarce resources for research.[3]

For example, in most of the developed world, heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death, as measured by the number (or rate) of deaths. For this reason, heart disease and cancer tend to get a lot of attention (and research funding). However, one might argue that everyone has to die of something eventually, and so public health efforts should be more explicitly directed at preventing premature death. When PYLL is used as an explicit measure of premature death, then injuries and infectious diseases, become more important. While the most common cause of death of young people aged 5 to 40 is injury and poisoning in the developed world, because relatively few young people die, the principal causes of lost years remain cardiovascular disease and cancer.[4]"Person-years of potential life lost in the United States in 2006[5] Cause of premature death Person-years lost
Cancer 8,628,000 person-years
Heart disease and strokes 8,760,000 person-years
Accidents and other injuries 5,873,000 person-years
All other causes 13,649,000 person-years We have become a fat lazy country.

LOL my so called ancient sources are the same timeline as yours. Exposing a hypocrite resides within yee. Now how the Price Of Inequality affects our society. These would be the ones to go to McDonald ha, ha, if they could afford it.
Prior to 2007 the 1% enjoyed accumulating 57% of the nations wealth. Producing an increase in capital income after 1979 some 7/8 while those in the 95% received less than 3% of the increment.
Consider for an example; Walton’s family of the Wal-Mart empire commands a wealth of 69.7 Billion. Compare this to the total wealth of the 30% of the entire population, of the impoverished within the USA.
“Good” middle class jobs have been eviscerated that required moderate skills, like autoworkers’ jobs, in ratio to the unskilled laborers. Where in at the top greater skill levels were required.
Polarization of the labor force. Collapse of good jobs has been in affect for the last 25 years. Wages have gone down, increasing disparity of inequality in favor of the 1%. Creating a downward spiral for the middle class laborer.
Presently as an example; Single earner of family of two children, in good health, manages to work 40 hours per week,{Presently Average working hours for Americans is at 34 hours} at a wage above minimum {$8.50/hr} Pays S.S. which reduces his earnings to $8.00. Yearly income is $16,640 for 2080 hr’s of labor.
Pays no income tax but his employer charges him $200 a month for health insurance, to cover entire family and employer picks up remaining $550 cost per month of the cost to health insurance. This results in a take home pay $14,240 a year. Luck on his side, finds an apartment for $700 month with all utilities included. Now this reduces yearly earnings to $5,840 to cover all family cost for the year. Add in a car with fuel, insurance and maintenance at $3,000 per year and what remains is $2840. Under $3.00 per individual per day. No entertainment and no buffer zone for accidents or lost of wages.
Along comes the “Great Recession” Safety nets cut! Miss rent due to loss wages and homelessness looms.
One Example of nets being cut and their affect; Many states cut child care. Average monthly child care for two children $1,433 per month to be subtracted from the $2,840 a month families income. Results in $1.30 per, person per day!

Dang this.
Let us now consider those who lost their jobs. Full time employment dropped by 8.7 million during November 2007 to November 2011. Just as 7 million were entering the workforce for jobs. Deficit to laborers employment can be calculated at 15 million. USA’s unemployment insurance one of the least in the western civilized nations. A safety net in dire need of repair overflowed and tore apart. Generally unemployment insurance was for 6
Months. In the “Great Recession” that was severely underestimated. Unemployment of 1 to 2 years more the norm and growing. Eligibility was used to eliminate sectors of the unemployed resulting in late 2011 inadequacies of only 38% of the unemployed were receiving benefits. 44% never received any benefits. Those receiving benefits, 70% of them, realized their benefits would not sustain them to the next employment. More than 50% of those receiving unemployment benefits, suffered emotional and health problems. Health Care is unavailable to the unemployed, compounding the seriousness of the issue. Middle aged unemployed lost hope of ever finding work. Optimism still high on 70% of all unemployed that they would find work within the next 12 months.. Alas American unemployment is emulating Europe’s long intervals of unemployment scenarios. Affect of lifelong earnings dwindling with every passing day of unemployment.
Insecurity enters the fray. Employed work with visions of pink slips being forth coming. Observing low levels of social protection administered to their fellow laborers exacerbated their insecurities and trust in a failed system. Pensions and health to be offered onto the altars of Wall Street!
Once it was a security to know your pension was secured through government policies that regulated corporations bearing the risk of stock markets investments and or the S.S. net of the government. Now this is under siege to transfer the pensions responsibilities to the laborers at an age where inexperience or a failing of comprehension is to decide and secure their pensions. Been there done that. Does not work out for the average retiree. Failure of that ideology was prevalent during the years before F.D.R.
Imagine had the laborer adhered to the analyst of Wall Street as the “Great Recession” started to blossom. Predatory schemes eating up all their life savings, with no nets to catch them from their fall, to the streets of desolation row. Just as what republicans advocate for our already polarizing labor forces and the increasing inequality of wealth. Note the millions that lost their life savings and or their homes, shelter, health, security with the minimal regulations that was able to blunt the full measure the full scope of the disaster. Now we are to remove even these weak and unreliable safety nets.
Weakness and disrepair to these nets produced losses to retirement accounts.$6.5 trillion loss in housing valuations. Minorities and those that fell prey to the predatory lending schemes were hit even harder. Predatory loans on individuals blew away the American dream for all of them, for decades if ever to return, to one more chance at the American dream. African Americans household lost 53% of their wealth. Hispanics lost 66% of their household wealth. Rendering their assets to less than 5% of the average white American’s. Average white American lost substantially, to $113,149 in 2009. A 16% loss of wealth.

Kind of a DUH there lad. What in the world do you think, why have we been seeking Obamacare. Distributions of the fit and ailing in one insurance plan.
Enlarge the base of insured and the price of health care goes down. Simple mathematics. Present USA medical system was ranked by the World Bank in the 37th place to the other developed nations. They have a Health Plan in place as we have had nothing more than feeding an ever increasing monopolized health care insurance with a decreasing base of insured.

Just for you Barney:" FRANKFURT — The president of the European Central Bank issued a sober assessment of the euro zone economy, saying on Thursday that he was “very, very cautious” about prospects for growth and acknowledging concern about shock waves from the civil war in Syria.

“I can’t share the enthusiasm” about budding growth in the euro zone, Mario Draghi, the bank president, said at his monthly news conference.“These shoots are still very, very green" "The bank may not welcome undue optimism about the euro zone economy because it could cause market interest rates to rise and make credit even more unaffordable for the businesses and households in Southern Europe that need it most." Welcome to 2013. This ain't 1920, 2004 or even 2009.Someone in Russia tonight could open their mouth and cause another recession /depression. It happens that fast.
