Like the title says. I have spent 1 year in Europe and one thing I noticed was that most of them have a slight disdain for the States. I am not a citizen of the US myself to take this personally or anything, but I am just curious as to why this is so. Usually in other parts of the world, people aspire to work here, if only for the pay.
Because standard of living there is much better. People seem happier and chilled out. Here we are still chasing higher TC in this rat race.
