Question of the Day

In which of the following nations do the poorest fifth of the population consume the most goods and services per person?

Correct Answer

Tell Me More

After accounting for all income, charity, and non-cash welfare benefits like subsidized housing and Food Stamps, the poorest 20% of Americans consume more goods and services than the national averages for ALL people in most affluent countries, including Denmark, Japan, Iceland, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, and others. This fact is based upon consumption data adjusted for purchasing power to measure tangible realities like square feet of living area, foods, smartphones, etc. Thus, an apple in one nation is counted the same as an apple in another.
