U.S. Lags in Social Justice

Strangely enough, the transnational media conglomerate Bertelsmann happens to be majority owned by a non-profit social research organization: the Bertelsmann Foundation. This foundation has just published a report analyzing social justice in the OECD (ie. industrialized nations) through metrics such as child/senior/overall poverty rates, access to education and health care, and income inequality.

Unsurprisingly (to some), the U.S. performs abysmally, worse than all industrially developed countries.
