It has finally happened. Those folks up north, the ones up in the attic who make so little noise compared to our neighbors down in the basement, have finally, quietly, passed us by. The net worth of the average Canadian household was $363,202 in 2011 compared to $319,970 in the United States. This means that we don’t even have the highest standard of living any longer in North America, something we could always count on when “who’s richer” topics were under debate.
So congratulations to our neighbors. It might be a good idea to start getting to know them better. Perhaps we all ought to pay them a visit. In the future, it might prove beneficial to have a personal relationship with the folks who will be loaning us money.
