Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At the risk of feeding a troll, it should be pointed out that an ET diary not too long ago documented the fact that France (I think it was France, but it may have been another European major) had a lower percentage of people earning less than the US relative poverty limit.

In other words, if you live in France, you have a lower risk of being poor by US standards than if you live in the US. France having a lower median income (if the stats in the article are correct), the numbers become even more atrocious when you compare them the other way around.
