What is a Life Worth?

One visible difference I have noticed, after living in US for over 7 years now, people in this country value life much more than any where else in the world. Being born and brought up in India, I was always amazed by the fact that we, as Indians, are so much more resilient to catastrophic events.

  • Does the value of life change with the economic status of a society?
  • Is a life worth less in a society with more people?
  • Why is a life in a third world country not even as worthy as a pet in developed countries?
