Re: yay, statistics

Quite true. The answer being that Norway is a substantially richer country than the US. Per capita GDP is about twice that of the US. The difference narrows a lot when you consider the cost of living.

The explanation is all that oil. Sure, smaller amount than the US pumps up but a vastly greater portion of the economy.
