Economic Growth doesn't make a country great.

The difference of USA from other countries is that it's not just a tourist country, not just a land of oppurtunity, etc etc. It's everything. In America, you will pretty much find everything.

Culture does too. I think the US lacks historical culture, but makes it up in technology and economic efficiency.

Historical Culture is seriously lacking Considering they did nothing but a short bout of killing one and other for the early years, and then nothing of note until World War I.

How does it make up for Historical Culture with Technology and 'Economic Efficiency'? They're not types of Culture

Well I like big skyscrapers.. that's the kind of thing I like. I like Europe for its historical identity. But America for its affluency, capitalist standing, and skyscrapers.

Skyscapers are really nice We don't have enough here...

Capitalist Standing is hardly something to be proud of.
