The U.S. has more and gives more of what they have than any country in the world.
You tell the American people there is a need and they give. When there is a disaster who's there along with the Red Cross? America. I know people, here in California, who drop everything to do search and rescue all over the world.
What don't you like about being able to do with your money what you want?
Do you have a job, an education, a place to live in? If you couldn't make money you can't go places, learn about solar water heating systems, and make a difference using them in the world. What makes America different is we don't live in a caste system. There is upward mobility, there is downward mobility. Many millionaires go through bankruptcy at least once in their lives. Bankruptcy isn't the end of the world in the U.S. like it is in Japan. If you lose face in Japan you kill yourself.
watergeek, a corporation consists of two or more people who obtain the the legal status of incorporation. My dentist and her associate are a corporation. I have friends, a husband and wife, who incorporated,because they had two restaurants, so they would not lose their house if somebody sued them.
Many small businesses are corporations so their personal assets are separate from those of the business.
I like that your looking for something positive. The positive is there.
