The chart below tallies the GDP of nations and represents each nation's GDP as a percentage of the global economy.
The U.S. economy is by far the largest at over $18 trillion.
By Continent, Asia overshadows North America and Europe. Yet, China (America's closest competitor) only has a GDP of approximately $11 Trillion.
There is a vast difference between the "Have" and "Have Not" countries.
For example, South America's four biggest economies account for 4% of the global GDP, while Asia accounts for 33.84%.
Impressive, but I suspect that America's success (globally) engenders the same resentment that the "One-Percent" get here in America.
