I don't know about the UK or Ukraine, but effectively all of the street people you see in the USA are mentally ill, addicted to substances, and usually both. They are incapable of holding a job or living a normal life. They are in fact a danger to themselves. Once upon a time they would have been incarcerated in a mental hospital or asylum. However, the USA dismantled its mental hospital/asylum system in the 1990s.

It's too cold there in fall, spring and winter. They go to warmer climates.

The cold is a deterrent.

superior social welfare systems and less wealthy inequality
those nations have a stronger sense of collective consciousness and less notions of hierarchy
the u.s is highly individualistic and competitive so there Is notion of trying to one up each other through money or capital gain, as opposed to having the greater well being as a whole mentality
