Is the U.S. among the best countries in the world?

Not according to a study by U.S. News and World Report.

Using several categories, including citizenship, quality of life, and power, U.S. News ranks the U.S. seventh.

That's a drop of three spots from last year.

The U.S. topped the list of most powerful countries - but came in 35th in being business friendly. It also didn't crack the top 20 for growth.
