the United States makes three things well: software, entertainment, and weapons.

@Harry_Pottash education, high-end complex engineering like space missions, wine...

@vgr @Harry_Pottash Most of Europe would call bullshit on the wine. At least you didn't say beer.

@machado @vgr @Harry_Pottash just because there’s no minimum quality standard (and it shows) doesn’t imply the good stuff isn’t good. There’s a thriving microbrewery culture that’s worthy of the title “beer”.

@vgr @Harry_Pottash the US does a good job at pretty much everything if there's enough money in it.

A lot of Euros don't seem to get the split between US high and low end goods.

@vgr by education you mean University, because our k-12 is terrible
