Mensagem:  For America (USA) to be the biggest of this and of that, it would be nice if contributions per capita were listed not just the total amounts and how much % that contribution is their average income. Bush announced 30 million for Asia in trouble? Portugal announced 8 million . Now Portugal has a population of 10 million and the US 25 times that much. The minimum wage here is 300 euros and may be average wage 500 euros. Therefore to be in awe of the USA, they should at least match a poor country like Portugal 50 times which is 400 million and then they are only matching it. As can be seen in the post on "american bashing" there are countries spending close to 1.00 % of their gross national income. Therefore if the richest country in the world comes up with o.o1 or 0.02 there isn't that much to boost about. Does this make me an American basher or some one just a bit critical, not going for all the hype and trompetting?
