I was just looking at the total for (GDP + inflation) for a few countries yesterday, these are the estimated totals for some major countries for 2011:

China 14.4%

Britain 5.7%
Canada 5.7%
USA 5.2%
Euro Area 4.6%

Japan -0.3%

Maybe the USA will get to the Japan position one day, but it's not there now, and I don't think it's going to get there either.
