America has fallen behind due to economic inequality due to unshared wealth and crony capitalism! As transnationals use The US to create more wealth for the funding class in America, lack of investment in public education, health care and wages, public housing , the environment, have created existential threats while making our living standards less than any developed nation in the world!! If the current trend continues homelessness will soon hit 50 million people. This will happen even though some of these same people are working!!
