Really? Who believes anything that China reports about their economy? Fools?

I don’t know where the World Bank gets its information, but they believe that using purchasing power index, the GDP of China surpassed the United States in 2013.

Using the dollar, the GDP of the United States is still greater, but if trends remain in place, this will change before 2025.

I submit that the dollar as the reserve currency is the reason the U.S. still has the largest nominal GDP because the dollar is the reserve currency and the dollar is not the reserve currency because the United States has the largest economy.

In fact, it is possible that the dollar and the place of United States power is now at a While E. Coyote moment and is standing in the air off the edge of a cliff.
