While there certainly are small areas under the Captialist régime that are very prosperous indeed, it's often easy to forget that these areas are only a tiny fraction of the total area under Capitalism. To get a more balanced view of how Capitalism operates, we must consider the information in aggregate. Now, it's clear that the USA is the headquarters of World Capitalism, therefore one would expect that at least in this country everyone would be living a happy and prosperous life. But, it turns out that this is far from the case. Let us first consider some images from the USA, and then expand our investigation to those countries who are neighbours and allies of the USA, which we would also expect to be hugely prosperous - if, as is often claimed, that all a country has to do is adopt American Capitalism to enjoy magnificent wealth and prosperity.
