most of the countries you've listed are far from rich
Compared to Peru, Honduras, and Guatemala, my cat is rich.
When Peru and the UK have the same mortality rates, something weird is at play. Especially that the UK is an island and, thus, able to control human traffic as well as any other island, Australia and Taiwan included. The results:
UK - 1870
Peru - 1821
Guatemala - 411
Honduras - 521
Australia - 35
Taiwan - .5 Yeap, that's point five and 4000 times lower than the UK's
So, back to my point...What did all that money and wisdom buy for the Western Europeans like the Brits and Belgians. The answer: deaths and the obedient police as the enforcers of insane rules that caused more deaths, unemployment, drug addiction, depression, and an off-the-chart misery index.
BTW, Taiwan is a good point of reference. They are a democracy and they know how to count bodies. Also, like the UK, an island.
