Hi Hal Ruhl  

So whbat ? Those gini coefficnets are in percentages,
so USA has a gini about 27 %, which is outstanding.

Where do you get this nonsense.  The very wikipedia page you cite shows the 
U.S. gini is 0.47 (and of course they are in percentages - that's the way gini 
is defined).  And 0.47 is 'outstanding' only if you think Uganda and Iran have 
a good distribution of income.  Yes, the U.S. gini is the middle of the 
worldwide *range*, because the range is goes all the way to 0.7 (Namibia) to 
0.23 (Sweden), but the U.S. is far more unequal than the other OECD nations.

If you don't that,  see from the wikimedia
map (below) that  the USA gini coeff. 
is about about average in the world:

Sorry, you have to go to that page to find what the colors mean.
The pink color indicates that USA is smack dab in the middle
of the gini coefficients.
