    EU : the only one capable to face front of US. But too concentrated on its little and ridiculous differences to make the Union. It makes me very nervous.

      Robert Montoya that’s not 100% correct. The main goal of democrat party should be reduce inequalities with a progressive model (in economic terms). GDP is not everything, in fact it’s very criticised because with the GDP is not possible to see the inequalities in the country. USA has a big problem with equality because there are a lot of rich people with almost all the money. In fact if you compare GDP counting the equality between people USA is very low compared with EU. The EU has less GDP because the gap between poor people and rich people is less (rich people pay more taxes to help poor people). 2 different models of welfare state.

    @wawamustats please tell me the name of the track in this video ?

  • krux

    Better if the whole American continent would intense their cooperative economical activities by focussing to their own region. Same for Europe (pro Africa), same for Asia. So no exorbitant oversea import/export trade would be necessary then anymore. Its the most sustainable strategy for the future of the world and prevents us from further war (as the biggest climate killer) and associated military conflicts and last but not least further innocent victims! Moreover:

    The roller coaster ride of the EU GDP compared to the US GDP may be due to the exchange rate volatility, as all GDP data is converted to USD


    now with the british exit the EU, things will get worse, it will fall again.

    • mr ms paint
      mr ms paint

      The Plazza Accord of 1985 spiraled Japan into a MASSIVE economic bubble that valued the Yen twice what it was actually worth. It took until the 2000s to recover, and by then the Japanese population had begun to decline, stunting further growth. The Government has tried to boost the Economy through artificial bonds, also known as Quantitative Easing, where they essentially take out loads of loans and inject them into the Economy, but all this has done is given Japan a debt of over 200% its GDP.

    The only good thing about America is their Economy or Army. Everything else sucks, life quality, health care system, culture, people behaviour, education. I judge say this because i see to many prideful Americans saying they are the best at everything. But no.

      That is because the video used nominal GDP in US dollars. If it had used Euro, the USA would be dancing in the wind instead.

    • Jerom

      Yajuvendra Raghav it would if you use euros

    • Khenric

      The others (especially EU) go down because it's measured in $US. So if for example, the € to $US exchange rate decreases by 20%, which regularly happen through the years, the EU graph will also decrease 20%. If the measure was in €, the US would be the one fluctuating.

      Well, it will really depend on how China/US/EU/Russia/India play the cards. If America keeps starting wars, India keeps buying weapons, EU shakes after brexit and Japan is controlled by the US, then China will have a great chance.

  • orfet1

    I see three continents competing, USA could be a continent by itself.

    • Khenric

      Well, the US IS basically a "continent". I mean, North america is only 3 big countries... Both Canada and the US are the size of Europe.
