I think it's more that we in the US have fallen so far in the level of our charitable worldwide actions at the government level than any other first-world nation, to the point where our miniscule 0.01 percent is just way too small compared to their more traditional 0.1 percent.

God save the Queen.. She ain't a human being.. there is no future... for England.
Are they counting the subsidy they give Scotland?

Screw the World Bank.
