Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem isn't the United States or United Kingdom.

The problem is unregulated capitalism, it consumes all that it touches and turns it into a commodity regardless of whether that makes any human sense or not.  The lesson of King Midas would seem to have been lost on the people who promote this aspect of the market as something positive.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
