Why do different countries use different measurements?

Initially there were a whole lot of different measuring systems that evolved separately in different places, because there wasn't enough communication first people in one part of the world to know how people in the other parts of the world were doing it, so they had to invent their own system.

Why America should not switch to the metric system?

The expense of the U.S. changing over to the metric system translates into changed measurements on all packaged products, starting with food. The change would also impact housing and lot sizes, the measurement of temperatures with the new use of Celsius, and the change of mileage and speed signs.
