If the U.S. is the richest country, why are all the other countries giving their people way more money (see chart)?

    Because the US is the least egalitarian of all those countries, meaning that, under Trump, the tax breaks and subsidies go to the rich.

    All those countries have a World Bank GINI index less than 35; the US is at 41.4, actually WORSE than Haiti (41.1)

    Because the USA is nothing if not a dystopian Hell ruled by the ultra-wealthy.

    Those countries are socialist/capitalist. The US is communist/capitalist. The US stimulus is comparable to China and Russia. The Chinese and Russian stimulus were much smaller than Americans. You have to factor in the population as well.

    The US is NOT the richest nation by a long shot.  It is actually #11 on the list.
