France, Germany, and the United States

We spent the last month touring France and Germany.  Two very nice countries that we always enjoy.

The two countries are very successful and great places to visit and live.  Germany has made a major commitment to wind and solar power generation and there are numerous solar panels on rooftops and wind turbines on hilltops and ridges.  France has a high percentage of their power generated by nuclear plants. Germany has decided to eliminate nuclear power.

All three countries enjoy a high standard of living. The per capita income of the United States is still considerably higher, however, according to figures published by the world bank.

United States    48,442

Germany          39,414

France             35,194
