  •  The list is skewed a bit because of (0+ / 0-)

    (not sure if 'skewed' is the best term) from countries like Qatar, Luxembourg, Singapore, etc but even with all of them removed, i'm none too happy about our place.

    •  I think seeing Qatar, Kuwait and such (0+ / 0-)

      is actually quite interesting. I usually think of them as places where the oil benefits flow to a few well-connected families, so it's interesting to see such large amounts flowing down to the 50th percentile (or even lower).
