The U.S. is 56 out of 130 countries on the Gini Index. Although it is on the upper half of the Index, you would think we would be a little more towards the top. I definitely think that we are a powerful country, but when you look at the index you see countries like Uzbecastan, Pakistan, Vietnam, and Japan have a better place on the index. You would think that the U.S. would have a better Gini than these countries. It just shows that we are not as high power as most Americans think.
