United States.........25.6%
France................19.0%
Italy.................14.7%

IMF numbers, if you're wondering. (Stolen unceremoniously from Michael Mendel's 'Economics Unbound' blog at BusinessWeek.)

Mendel's comments on the rankings are a bit disingenuous (or foolish), as he ignores the relative starting points. Growth of 6% above France is not so bad when you consider that the beginning level of PCI was $10 grand higher for the US. Of course, you could pop a big hole in the joy bubble by throwing in growth in inequality over the same period.
