The Best Argument I've Heard For France

It turns out, per hour worked, France produces slightly more than the US.

France has $36,500 GDP/Capita and works 1,453 hours per year. This equates to a GDP/Capita/Hour of $25.10. Americans, on the other hand, have $44,150 GDP/Capita but work 1,792 hours per year. Thus Americans only achieve $24.60 of GDP/Capita/Hour.

They beat us by $0.50 per hour. Not bad, France, not bad.
