We're #7! We're #7!

Zerohedge details:

While the US was #1 10 years ago, due to an abysmal growth rate of only 23%, by far the lowest of all the ranked countries, the US has now dropped from first to seventh, falling behind such countries as Sweden and France.
While the US was in fact still a distant #2 behind Switzerland in 2000 (60% less for the Swiss was $232k / head, while 23% less for the US was $192k), the relative results since 2000 are still rather sobering.
