The land of the free and home of the free refills -- no matter how much anyone hates on America, there are still ample reasons to love the place that invented the Double Down. Well, that is, unless you're an expat living in the States.
According to HSBC's annual "Expat Explorer" report, the US is one of the worst places in the world to be an expat, ranking no. 30 out of 34 countries surveyed. The study ranks nations based on their economic and experiential value, as well as quality of family life.
To little surprise, Switzerland grabbed the top spot, thanks to stellar healthcare, sports, and local travel opportunities. Shania Twain and Tina Turner agreed with the study results, while Singapore, China, and Germany ranked just behind the Alps nation.
As for why the US ranked so low, Americans' strong work ethic takes blame; the US ranked lowest for its work/life balance, or really, just a general lack of life compared to work, coming in at no. 32, or third-worst in the world.
