By the Numbers - Lawyers, Income, Prices and Births

Some facts.  Parenthetical and trailing comments provided by TheFundamentals.

Attorneys per capita (higher is better):

US of A               265
Brazil                  326
New Zealand        391
Spain                  395
Italy                    488
United Kingdom   401
Germany             593
France             1,403

Who says we can’t learn from the Frenchies?

2008 US of A Household Income (by gov’t category):

Asians        $65,637
Whites         55,530
Blacks          34,218

Why don’t we elect more Americans of Asian background to political leadership positions? Why doesn’t the public policy of the US of A adopt certain cultural standards, values and fundamentals of Asian Americans? Americans are big on results, right? Why not emulate the top group?

Consumer Price Index (lower is better unless you're a politician):

1947      $ 37.50
1977       100.00
2008       316.20

Ask yourself why politicians don’t speak to the above numbers. If you paid $37.50 for it in 1947, you paid $316.20 for it last year. Deficits = Debt = Destruction. Borrowing/printing money costs Americans a lot. Price stability matters. Rising income numbers mean nothing when prices rise at these rates.

2006 Birth Rates to Unmarried Women (you figure out which is better; note the Asians)

Whites        33.3%
Blacks         70.2
Asians         16.5
Hispanics     49.9
