Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How can we compare the quantitative value of the various lifestyles?  The american would quip that not only would they not like to live like burkinabe, but that the burkinabe would rather live like them.  Whether this is actually true or not, let's suppose it is, isn't that then saying that the american lifestyle is fundamentally superior to the burkinabe lifestyle and hence a morally directed goal for all humanity to reach?
