Just saw an interesting graph in Chief Executive magazine. It listed the world's Top 24 Economies, comprising 85.7% of the world's GDP.
The USA tops the list at $12.4 trillion dollars (2005). That's over 250% more than 2nd place Japan at $4.5 trillion, nearly 500% more than 3rd place Germany at $2.7 trillion, and almost 600% more than 4th place China (probably more since they overstate everything) at $2.2 trillion.
Australia's GDP? $732 billion, behind Russia, Mexico, South Korea, Brazil, India, Canada, Spain, Italy, France, and the UK; just ahead of the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, etc. We have four STATES that have a higher GDP than Australia.
Incidentally, the 2007 GDP for the US was $13.7 trillion. GDP by State
Most of those fuckers can decry the old US of A all they want; none of them could live without us.
