Are there other countries that have the same type of problems with consumerism?

    The inhabitants of the US make up about 5% of the world’s population, but consume around a quarter of the planet’s resources.  Other developed countries, and increasingly developing countries too, also have problems with over-consumption – but not to the same extent that this problem exists in the US.  Japan and the countries of western Europe manage to maintain a quality of life similar to that in the US, while consuming much less per person.  From the prevalence of gas-guzzling SUVs on our streets, to the size of our TVs, the US uses up resources like no other country does.
