No they don't. I know this first hand. In many ways, infant mortality and 
level of health care, their standards of living are better than ours. 
France's aircraft industry and Germany's auto industry are second to 
none. France's nuclear power generating program makes ours look pretty 
pathetic. France's Ariane rockets are a prime example of commercial space 
technology in action. And they do it with 36 hour work weeks and 
universal health care.
