Warren Buffett and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein were just on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. And while you can probably imagine what kind of amazing one-act show/buddy comedy those two could put on together, that’s not what happened.It was kind of a snooze fest.

But Warren did say something that got us talking. He said that the luckiest people in the world are children born in today’s United States of America.

Do you agree?

There are a few positive things to consider — like our GDP per capita of $48,100 and the U.S. life expectancy, which sits at 78.1 years.

On the other hand, there’s the U.S. debt to GDP ratio of over 100% and clear political gridlock that keeps politicians from finding solutions to some of our most pressing problems.

Again, that’s just to name a couple of things, good and bad. So what do you say — is the US still on top of the world?
