Relative Sizes of Economies After Global Growth: 2010-2060

Despite a slowdown in economic growth, China will soon displace the U.S. as the world leader. By 2030 the Middle Kingdom will generate a tad over ¼ of global production.

In 2060 China will retain its lead with India close behind. The rich nations will fall back in relative terms while the other poor countries will hold their ground. On the upside, though, every region of the planet will burgeon in terms of absolute levels of wealth and income.
