The Americans have a passion for grandeur. Their skyscrapers, bridges and dams often have a splendor which matches in beauty and scale in the country's natural wonders. Is the sole aim of most Americans to make money and posses luxuries which could be called excessive? The majority of Americans would certainly deny this, though most feel proud to amass wealth and possessions through hard work. In the USA, about 90% of the population is well enough off to expect a brighter future. The USA still has one of the highest standards of living in the world, although, at the present time, 10% are below what the government considers to be the "poverty line". While these underprivileged people receive help from the government, they have no high hopes for the future.
美国人热衷豪华壮观。他们的摩天大楼、大桥、水坝等壮观宏大建筑与美国的自然景观交相辉映。赚钱和拥有众多奢侈品是否美国人唯一的追求呢?多数美国人当然会否认此点,虽然他们认为通过努力工作赚取财富是值得骄傲的。在美国,90%以上的人生活富裕,有美好的未来。美国具有世界上最高的生活标准,尽管现在仍有10%的人口生活在政府的贫困线标准以下。尽管这10%的贫困人口受到政府的帮助,但是他们对未来依然没有多大期望。
