Something to consider when people say Chinas economy is bigger then the US’s economy. First of this based on actual physical items produced so it never accounts for intellectual products produced (i.e. consulting jobs, financial advisors, americans not working in the US). Second China has 1 billion people vs 300 million in the US. This means that if you divide 14 trillion by the number of people in each country the US is economically way ahead of China. Just to keep things in perspective.
