America, 19% of the world’s gross domestic product


Don’t cry for me Argentina… on second thought maybe we should cry for Argentina.

America, on the other hand, is doing fine.

A few years ago there was a lot of chatter related to America’s decline. People were saying our glory days were behind us. Sure, it was election season… the season when every message acts a calculated lever. That’s why I’m posting this chart.

The chart delivers a nice, comprehensive picture of the US health as it pertains to gross domestic product over the past century.

It helps to keep in mind that the US, China and India’s percentages of the global population are 4.5%, 18.6% and 17% respectively.

Good chart.
