Joking aside, I think we are talking several different things here...

Are we talking about "what determins each individual's wealth level"?? or..
Are we discussing "what makes some nation (and/or it's citizens) rich/poor??" or...
Are we talking about "the government corruption" in general?? unsure.gif

Plainly the answer is fat people eating wallets.
It makes sense unlesyou belive (in the case of the UK*) it's to much borrowing from banks with out paying back, goverment mismanagment of several important businesses and services (ie: British rail, NHS, Royal Mail) general increased public spending, silly Offical projects like the Dome and the Welsh National Esemably building (Atleast I think thats the grossly over budget building in Cardiff) and a general lack of understanding of Economics on behalf of the public.
Thats abit far fetched though. Fat people eatng wallets = perfct logic.

*The title is "What makes us poorer?" not "What makes us poor?" so the US and UK are also up for discussion.

Ha, we can say the almost same for the U.S., except, in the U.S., one of the major reasons people go bankrupt is getting sick. Yes, getting major illness, then the medical expenses mount, even if they had some sort of insurance coverage, it doesn't pay all, and most will soon go over the coverage limit as well, then they have no way to pay, but the treatment for the illness is still needed, or the person will die in many cases, so they continue treatment, and when they get burried by the bills from doctors and hospitals they go bankrupt.
Hear the simlar story over and over here. Sad state of the States, indeed...

But, yap, the simplest answer is fat people eating wallets. That's it!! That's the cardinal truth!! tongue.gif

The NHS is good, it's just nowhere near as good as it could be.

If U.S. is supposed to be such a great country, why don't we even have a basic NHS??
That's a huge disgrace, if I may say so... sad.gif

Republicans. Namely, George Bush. That is the answer to why the majority of America's wealth belongs to, like, five people.
