US Slips In Global Economic Competitiveness

Oh my.  Northern European countries are sailing right past us, and we've slipped for the fourth year in a row!  Blurb:
"In addition to the burgeoning macroeconomic vulnerabilities, some aspects of the country's [United States] institutional environment continue to raise concern among business leaders, particularly the low public trust in politicians and a perceived lack of government efficiency," said the WEF, a think tank that also hosts the annual meeting of global business and political leaders in the Alpine town of Davos, Switzerland.
You don't say!  The US is currently ranked in seventh place. Seventh!  Disgraceful.
