You have 5 seconds to defend your country's honor and explain why you don't have a trillion dollar economy.
>subtracting debt from GDP, Russia is richer than US, and UK combined
Depends on nominal or PPP.
Trust me, Russia's economy didn't drop 70% in real life. Only about 3.7% in 2015.
It's just no one likes taking a guaranteed 3.7% loss so they sell way more than the economically implied value.
I'm not trashtalking it you dumb fuck, google the article which makes the retarded claim and read it. Use your pea-sized brain.
They assume ONE Dutch guilder is worth ~ $100k dollars. Even a literal retard like you must know that's bullshit, even when adjusting for inflation.
Using the sources contained in here
We confirm that a guilder used by the VoC would be worth somewhere between 9 and 20 dollars (1600-1800) so the 78 million guilder figure doesn't convert to 7.4 trillion dollars as the article claims, but to 700 million and 1.6 billion dollars. Which is thus the worth of the VoC.
Because money is attracted to america. Anybody with a good idea moves to America because they know they will get support. You have to encourage development within your own country.
1. Japan =124 million old people
America =324 million younger people
2. Japan is a small, land constrained country
America is a huge, resource rich land
3. Japan recently purposefully devalued the Yen, about 30%.
America's Central Bank is beginning to tighten financial conditions, strengthening the dollar.
This means that in nominal terms Japan has become poorer, but in reality it is actually richer (because of recent economic growth).
