Although the United States' economic growth continues to be as strong or stronger than many other countries, only a small percentage of American households is fully benefiting from it, reports The New York Times. As evidence, Canada's median income pulled into a tie with median United States income in 2010 and has most likely surpassed it since then. Also, several European countries are narrowing the gap between them and the United States in that measure of economic well-being.
