Despite America’s suffocating debt levels and (what many consider) its self-defeating government policies, more foreigners than ever are wishing they were American.
No, I’m not talking about Cubans launching dilapidated boats bound for Florida. Nor am I talking about lottery green card wannabes from impoverished nations, desperate for their own piece of the American Dream.
I’m thinking about nationally proud young people who wouldn’t normally admit their envy for the land of Stars and Stripes: Brits, Canadians, Australians, and Europeans.
So why the sudden affinity?
