Commentary
United States:
1. Quality of life, standard of living, personal safety (24%) {44% "R" +}; 2. Economy/government policies (23%) {38% "R" +}; 3. Middle East/Terrorism (22%) {32% "R" +}; 4. World hunger/shortgage of fresh water (14%) {14% "R" -}; 5. Global Warming/Environment (12%,) {28% "R" -}; 6. Ebola..Infectious disease (7%) {58% "R" -}.
For Americans (47%) are concerned with "Quality of Life...Economy", and (53%) support the remaining (4) four issues. Measured against "R", 7 in 10 Americans are more concerned with that which directly affects them...as opposed to more Global issues.
Sixty four percent (64%) of Americans declare as Capitalists, while (17%) say they are Socialist-Social Democrat. (79%) Decided Capitalist--(21%) Decided Socialist-Social Democrat.
The United States poverty level is set at 13% by RSR ROBBINS based on variety of sources.
We rank U.S. debt at 75 and trending upward to 100 (from Internet sources sufficiently credible (including government sources) for fair and reasonable averaging or arbitrary assignment by RSR.
The United States has an economic OCI of (83%), based on GDP-PPP (92%). Average (88%). United States ODCDC is (90%). A Double Platinum Score (based on higher population mass-330,000,000).
Canada:
1. Quality of life, standard of living, personal safety (23%) {38% "R" +}; 2. Economy/government policies (19%) {14% "R" +}; 3. Middle East/Terrorism (18%) {8% "R" +}; 4. Global Warming/Environment (17%) {2% "R" +}; 5. World hunger/shortage of fresh water (16%) {4% "R" -}; 5. Ebola...infectious disease (7%) {58% "R" -}.
For Canadians, "Quality of life, standard of living, personal safety matter....Economy/government policies" matters most to (42%). More "international" matters such as "Middle East/Terrorism (though now recognized as a domestic problem)...Global Warming....World hunger...infectious disease--attract (58%) of concern. affects them...as opposed to more Global issues.
Canadians prefer to identify as Capitalists (55%) than Socialist-Social Democrat (30%). (65%) Decided Capitalist.
Canada's Outcome to Capitalist Ideology (OCI), (where GDP per Capital defined as % is measured against net (%) of declared Capitalists) in this RSR ROBBINS (International) - Canada produces an OCI of $53,000 (53%) divided by net Capitalist (55%) or (96%) OCI.
OCI based on GDP-PPP (Purchase Power) puts Canada at (85%), average (91%). GDP per Capita/PPP obtained from various credible sources (and where applicable average or considered for arbitrary adjustments).
Canada's Outcome to Domestic Concerns to Decided Capitalism (ODCDC) {adjusted} is (98%). ODCDC features 2 of the 4 concern response choices - denoted as (National) or in some instances as (Domestic).
Although there is no consistent measurement for poverty (i.e. China poverty is one tenth GDP per Capita--with China's buying power 2 x GDP-- Canada's poverty is about one third.
We rank Canada at (73%) (DGDP) {Generally considered as the debt per GDP relative to a year's GDP of that country} about the same as the United States). Canada's GDP per Capita is (23%) above Northern Europe (by population).
Canada average OCI & ODCDC is (95%) - A Platinum Result for Canada, the Highest under our RSR Scoring of Platinum, Gold, Silver, & Bronze. (Only countries with over 50 million population eligible to higher levels of Platinum U.S.). The big drag on Canada's standing is the high debt to earnings of Canadians -, weak to no GDP per Capita growth and a hornet's nest in its real estate market (any collapse here Could seriously damage TSX as well).
2017 will begin to tell us if Canada remains near the top of developed countries or slides down.
North America (United States & Canada):
North America - considered by outcomes from Canada and the United States - average 2 of 3 persons in those countries concerned with issues which are likely more to affect them--personally (domestic). Averaging the populations of both the larger U.S. and smaller Canada it is fair to say that (63%) are Capitalists while (18%) are Socialists-Social Democrats.
Based on population North America averages (78%) Decided Capitalist-(22%) Socialist-Social Democrat.
North America averages (89%) OCI. North America PPP factor averaging (92%) overall average OCI (91%). North America (United States & Canada) Double Platinum Score.
One important matter going forward which must be carefully considered for the economies of developed nations, and specifically those in this RSR Study---is Immigration. The difference in approaches from U.S. President to Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau could prove success or failure for economic growth.
Canada & US combine for (21%) concern for terrorism - (12%) less on average than concern for terrorism than Northern Europe.
Sweden:
1. Global Warming/Environment (26%) {56% "R" +}; 2. Economy/Government policies (22%) {32% "R" +}; 3. World hunger/shortage of fresh water (17%) {2% "R" +}; 4. Ebola..other infectious disease (13%) {22% "R" -}; 5. Middle East /Terrorism (13%) {22% "R" -}; 6. Quality of life, standard of living, personal safety (9%) {46% "R" -}.
In Sweden, (37%) of the population is Socialist-Social Democrat, and (48%) is Capitalist. (56%) Decided Capitalist. Sweden's OCI is (10(10)%). Based on PPP OCI (10(4)%). Average (10(7)%). OCDCD is (95%) - average (100%).
Sweden's results cruise into Port like an Abba song on the radio, with DGDP averaged over (50%) (6 mos to annualized GDP), and trending beneath it. Low poverty rates - Sweden is near dead on, doesn't need inflation but needs to keep a close eye on the other countries involved in this RSR Study--and realize if the U.S. is making a move for growth - Sweden should take note.
A Platinum Score based on high score but lower population.
Germany:
Germany averages (90%) through OCI, PPP OCI & OCDCD averages. A Double Platinum ranking based on population.
Great Britain:
'England', (24%) Socialist-Social Democrat, (66%) Capitalist. (73%) Decided Capitalist. 'England's' OCI is (59%). Based on GDP per Capitalist/PPP (67%). Average (64%).
Great Britain's average DGDP is at {57%} with last trending upwards {50%} higher.
Republic of Ireland:
Republic of Ireland, (27%) Socialist-Social Democrat, (46%) Capitalist. (63%) Decided Capitalist.
RoI's OCI is (10(36%)). After PPP (10(46%). Average (10(41%)). Republic of Ireland debt near North American averages-small pop.
Republic of Ireland is (82%) OCDCD average (10(23%) for Gold to Platinum Standard based on very high OCI and much lower OCDCD (elastic).
France:
France, (29%) Socialist-Social Democrat, (50%) Capitalist. (63%) Decided Capitalist. France's OCI is (76%). After PPP (88%), Average (82%) OCI & (82%) OCDCD.
France's DGDP is in the mid (50's%), ultimately producing a very good but not truely exceptional result.
Northern Europe:
Northern Europe averages 4/10 on issues that construed as domestic, (40%) less than North America (Canada & US). 6/10 lean more toward more globally construed issues. Ideologically - Canada is more similar to Northern Europe than the United States (30% Socialist-Social Democrat), (which averages 27%).
Germany is similar to the United States in the number of respondents who declare Socialist-Social Democrat ( Germany @(16%)). England and the United States have populations with equivalent percentages declaring as Capitalists (England @ (66%)).
Northern Europe averages higher Socialist-Social Democrat on average (27%) based on population than North America (18%).
Canadians & Americans are more similar in terms of perceiving the economy/government policy - quality of Life, standard of living - and personal safety @ 3/2.
Based on population Northern Europeans are (72%) Decided Capitalists. Based on averaging North Europe's OCI is (89%) before Republic of Ireland and including it (91%), with average OCDCD (86%), (average (88%)).
DGDP is in the low 60's.
Based on population is Northern Europe is rated Double Platinum despite Britain's relatively poor performance (not responding to 'Capitalist Demand' (DD)).
The United States might seem out of sorts with Northern Europe on more Global concerns - (ie Global Warming) - however there is no mistake - majorities in every country in North America & Northern Europe declare themselves Capitalists notwithstanding the clear disparity in terms of focus of concern(s).
China:
1. Economy/government policies (31%) {86% "R" +); 2. World hunger, shortage of fresh water (18.5%) {11% "R" +}; 3. Global Warming/environment (17.5%) {6% "R" +}; 4. Quality of lie, standard of living, personal safety (12%) {28% "R" -}; 5. Middle East/terrorism (11%) {35% "R" -}; Ebola and other deadly infectious disease (9%) {46% "R" -}.
China is (44%) Socialist-Social Democrat; and (24%) Capitalist. China is (65%) Decided Socialist-Social Democrat. With China measured at $8,000 GDP per Capita, and PPP at $16,000 - our average is $12,000 of (24%) Capitalist (about the pop size of US) registers as (50%) OCI average. A logical case could be made relative to China's Socialists, a very best case scenario that China's OCI is (66%).
About one in four Chinese have convention phone lines-one in three a mobile phone--not dissimilar to U.S. levels in each of the countries examined - China's poverty is reported at (6%), but given its poverty level is nearly 3 times that of North America and Northern Europe poverty to GDP per Capita--and buying power is double that of GDP (or more), it is important to watch China's development through 2017-2018.
Japan:
Japan is (17%) Socialist-Social Democrat, and (65%) Capitalist. Japan is (80%) Decided Capitalist. Japan's OCI is (73%) at PPP its (66%) average at (70%). Japan's OCDCD is (69%) for average of (70%). Score Japan Gold standard based on population.
South Korea:
South Korea is (7%) Socialist-Social Democrat, and (78%) Capitalist. South Korea is (92%) Decided Capitalist. South Korea's OCI is (45%) - with similar PPP assessment, average (45%) OCI. South Korea's OCDCD is (76%) for average with OCI of (61%). Score South Korea - Bronze Standard based on population.
Hong Kong:
Hong Kong is (2%) Socialist-Social Democrat, and (86%) Capitalist. Hong Kong is (98%) Decided Capitalist. Hong Kong OCI is (48%), while PPP is (63%) or average (55%). Hong Kong's OCDCD is (77%) or (66%) average.
Asia Pacific (China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong)
Average Capitalist (no China) (70% net). Average OCI (no China) (66%). As a regional group of Northeastern Asia Pacific - (without China OCI) is around (94%) {because of Japan's much larger population}.
North America - Northern Europe - Asia Pacific countries referenced in this study holding 60% of the World's wealth have very similar OCI's-all around 90%.
Better GDP per Capita/Capitalism of country values from Britain, South Korea & Hong Kong might prove helpful. China shifting to (30%) Capitalist might be a benefit. China's growth rate is important and North Korea's (China's 'surrogate') intimidation of countries in the region, most particularly South Korea and Japan is not a benefit.
Standing:
1. United States-Double Platinum based on Level 1 (over 100 million) population- (340 million).
2. Germany-Double Platinum based on Level 2 population (over 50 million)-(80 million).
