granted imports are good, but too many are not. if a country imports too many goods it will cost a lot of money. the ideal is to have exports exceeding imports. the more a country can produce itself internally the better off it is as its not dependant on other countries.
imports are often things people want. Sony, BMW, Rugs from Eyqpt, books from forgin writers. The more stuff your people have, the higher your GDP. If you can go out and buy anything, thats a good economy. the more stores, selling these goods, the better. I don't know about you, but when I go out shopping, I have countless places to choose from, with countless different goods. Why, I could go out now, being hungry, and eat at sonic, subway, the deli, kathys, mcdonalds, burgerking, pizza hut, papa johns, pizza shack, pizza in, daminos, the crackle barrel, starbucks, chilis. Or if I wanted to make my own food, kroger, wal mart, albertsons, harvest foods, dollar general/store/tree, family dollar, Exards, HEB, and if I wanted to buy cool stuff, I have raido shack, several family run businesses, wal mart, target, best buy you know, I think I could go on and on, but I making a poiint, and I think i'll get too it. America has more commerce then the EU. The eu has more small businsesses and the US has more corporations and mass retail. All of the marjor retail and fast food joints, and mass marketed places are here. And adverstisment everywear, no matter what kind of job, you can get it in america, no matter what kind of food, we got it, cloths, we got it, trinkets, electronics, entertainment, service. You want something its handed too you on a silver pladder. We are the richest, morst lucritive economy in the world. THe average person makes 40 G's a year, thats twice what your pulling in in the EU. Face it, you are arguing a faild argument. I don't care if your the President of the EU chamber of commerce, if they have one, and your best friend is the President the the US chamber of commerce. And you talk all the time, hes either lyin to ya, or your ignoring him.

the benifts you mention are not only the benifts we recieve and not only to do with employment. there are very generous child allowances, among others. but back to employment, if someone goes out of a job here the government will step in and help them back on their feet. they recieve weekly money, they will even send them on courses to get education while being paid and even when they start work they will be paid by the government and the employer.
and then you wonder why you have such a high unemployment rate. Heres a hint of advice, tell france to stop pissing in holes lining the street, stop bathing in fountians, and start using ice. Then all of them will have to find houses with bathrooms, because the street is no longer an option. If that does sway them to get a job, then perhaps not being able to bath will, and if that doesnt, at least they will not have a hot drink after a long days of shitting themselves, and no bathing for weeks. ewwww.
