other than "GDP" what are any of those reasons

No universal healthcare, religious fanaticism, dogmatic patriotism, gun violence everywhere, hurricanes, wildfires and tornadoes everywhere, a racist police force, and a ****ed political system

I can see why people would love to visit America but living there? Absolutely not, and it's far, far down the list of the best countries to live in.

I'd live in the US but not as a US citizen - there are many reasons that it would be a great place to live but the healthcare situation is ludicrous, and personally I don't think I could handle the stress of knowing that if one of my family got a long term illness we could end up financially ruined or worse.

So I'd happily live/work in the US but retaining UK citizenship so that we could access universal healthcare if the worst was to happen. .

I would say a lot of western countries have similar culture and opportunities with less of the "wrong"

So much character in the States

And there's a ton of reasons it's a great place to live imo - the people, the music, the food, the sport, the variety, the wildlife, the landscapes, the creative industries, the universities etc etc

Pretty much. Notwithstanding its obvious flaws.

The area of the US I would consider living in, seems to be on fire at the moment.

But Canada is very appealing. Idk!

I wouldn't necessarily say "better", but I've seen most of the UK and it isn't all that culturally diverse so there's not so much "new" to experience. I live in and grew up in central Scotland, I've been all over the Highlands, I've done London + the South of England a tonne of times and I lived in both Yorkshire (for about 6 months) and Lancs near Manchester (for 2 years). I've never been to Wales, to be fair.

So I'd say I'd be surprised if there's anywhere in the UK that would really offer a "brand new experience" at this point whereas the US has a hell of a lot to see and do and also a lot of variety from state to state.
