OECD = The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
Interesting information about the organization and the status of the US among member nations. This link is to the statistics page.
Statistics - OECD
An almost endless number of specific comparisons of member countries, showing relative changes, absolutes, and direction of dozens and dozens of factors in the economy, from the cost of pensions, healthcare costs, retirement ages, number of legally "paid" working days...
(US has none, while most nations have more than 20), and things like food, disposable income, energy and forecasts of future costs of products, and some retirement statistics.
Worthwhile, just going to the page and scrolling down to see what kinds of info are available.
...too many comparisons to count...
Things like the US income Tax Rate:
Effective tax rates on $100K in the US 26% vs. Germany 44%, Denmark 42%, and India 39%
And Tax Revenues as a % of GDP:
US the lowest of the OECD with 32%... Denmark highest @ 57% and the average of all OECD 38%
One of the facts that surprised me was that 18 out of 24 countries have more physicians per 1,000 people than the US.
While statistics by themselves are meaningless, opportunities and problems can be inferred, as we become more globalized. The OECD is a good reference point.
