ABSTRACT
The article explores the U.S. adoption of national exceptionalism and overconfident in the bestness of all things American. Lingering before the Mirror of Exceptionalism, the U.S. reportedly lags behind virtually all advanced economies. For instance, Japan still manages a life expectancy that is five years longer than the U.S. Europe, even after many of the proposed austerity packages, still enjoy social benefits not experienced in the U.S.
