Tipping in the USA

Comments on another thread brought to mind this question which I have often had on a return from travel abroad and never answered to my satisfaction.

Why can restaurants in other "civilized" countries employ service personnel of good quality, in many cases for years, in a no tip or low tip scenario but here in our fair land the restaurant owners have convinced us that it is not possible?
