These are the countries that will be considered developed, you must agree on this list for the debate. There are 35 Developed nations excluding The United States, I will have to prove America is better than 18 of them.
The BOP IS SHARED, so you must prove 18 of the listed nations are better to live in than America, while I must prove America is better to live in than 18 of the listed nations.
Better Definition that must be agreed on.
"of a more excellent or effective type or quality."
PLEASE NOTE, BOP IS SHARED.
Refutions to PRO's case will be in R2
This article was published in 2018, a recent article, as a matter of fact, proving that inequality is worse in the 22% of countries listen in here. This means if you drew a random person out of a hat, they would have 20.1% chance of being in poverty versus the other developed nations as such. The fact that us is behind the developing nations is proof of the sadness that goes on.
This study also finds that there are more women in developed nations than men . This means a population of those people who move to America are more likely to be discriminated against based off of gender alone
None of PRO case matters if people are unequal based off the gender they identify as, a strong disadvantage
for many different reasons there is a tendency in household surveys for respondents to underreport their income.
“research on poor households in the U.S. suggests that consumption is better reported than income”
“a more direct measure of material well-being.”
this study was reviewed by Dr. Henrique Schneider
he concluded: “This study is sound and conforms with academic standards. I personally think it provides valuable insight into poverty measures and adds considerably to this field of research.”
“”perceptions of wage equality by the countries business community””,
“”perceptions of wage equality for similar work””
“”In the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Survey, 42% of business leaders perceived addressing gender parity in their company””
I will also use contention that with millionaires, women are less likely to become millionaires due to extremely high gender gap evolved, so they are at an disadvantage to become rich, so the inequality is huge in America, meaning there's a drastic difference.
8th in Freedom of thought
Happiness is defined by as a state of being. A state of being means that is not necessarily defined by the society you live in, but the people you are surrounded by and what happens in your life.
The video itself is extremely wrong and biased itself. First off, the channel itself has 195 subs, meaning it is not a relevant source. Secondly, the chart depicted in the video even states that 20 developed countries have a lower poverty rate than America.
The OECD is a more reliable source than JustFacts. This is an official conducted survey about the poverty rates and it is at the bottom. JustFacts is spotty at best. It does not matter if the 20% are still higher than some, the video proves that even that, the poverty rate is still lower. US has the 9th largest gap between the rich and the poor, and with an 18% average poverty rate, this means you are more likely to either hit rock bottom or be rich, and you said 6 out of 100 Americans are Millionaires, but nearly 18 out of 100 Americans are in poverty, meaning the odds of you being in poverty are triple than being a millionaire
You also claim that the source says that the 20% poorest live better than some in poverty, this is because the cost of living is so much higher in the US and is continually rising . This means for Europeans, it takes you a lot less money to be poorer in general versus any other country, and being poor in America is because standard of living is higher.
Perception based results aren’t reliable.
It is also likely these countries are more equal in wage gap due to population size and the overall consistency of the stats
