Dr. Scott Galloway, entrepreneur and NYU Professor offers a compelling blog post that most Americans (and its friends and enemies) might reflect upon.

He writes that “ For decades, America has predicted — arrogantly and repeatedly — the imminent fall of a nation. The doomed nation, according to Americans? A: America.”

If you read Galloway regularly, you know he is not a cock-eyed optimist, but he looks at number of metrics and concludes “By nearly every measure, America is doing just fine. Better than fine….We are the least bad of our kind. When I look at the data, much less my personal situation, I can’t help but hate my life less and less every day.” 

America is not perfect…but there’s reason for optimism. You’ll profit by learning why Dr. Galloway thinks America is the “Least Bad.”
