    In 1607, the English established their first permanent settlement in Jamestown, Virginia.

    Over the coming centuries, millions of people from around the globe were attracted to this New World that came to be the US for a chance at a better life.

    Today, more than 1 in 8 Americans are immigrants, and almost all are descendants of those born in foreign lands.

    Some were later attracted to the US because of its vast opportunities. There were slaves who were forced to go and work in the US. All who live in US have contributed to its growth and that is why they call call it as a superpower. What I don't like is that the USA markets affect the world markets.
