I am not saying we have to make 'every good'. I would argue though that the cost of having a significant portion of the country on welfare and needing treatment for various ailments such as obesity and drug abuse has been ignored in calculating comparative advantage. Our government has basically subsiding corporate profits by keeping these people from dying in the streets.

Conveniently you left Germany out, not to mention Japan really goes against the grain of your point. Personally I think a country is strongest when they don't have all their eggs in one basket and have solid segments in every segment of the economy. A country structured this way will be much more resilient to economic disruptions and will make the most of the human capital within.
