half of american's GDP? America is empty.
The US is set to become the world’s largest oil producer much larger then all Arab states put together on top of the fact that 3D printing is just 3years from changing the world making low cost labor unnecessary……so not really empty but full of potential.

How sad.
To be fair they only do that to prove that their companies are sucessful not because most businesses deem themselves as racially inferior, more like they feel rightfully that the education system there is rubbish,people get ahead by cheating in exams, family status and ass kissing rather then being capable.

Sorry for late reply but just saw this

The USSR economy at its desolution was worth $2.5trillion or about $9trillion and this is while it was in stagnation, subsidiesing hundreds of its Allies around the world and taking part in an arms race with the world's biggest economy....and winning it

.....so yeah it was pretty powerful economically and militarily

I did clearly write down the differences....here u go, copied from the post I did on the subject....

Sunday
And from all that I wrote on my last post to u thats all u got? Wow, ignorance really is bliss, I want me one of those. Fiction?
No dear child no, I didn't say the Icelandic economy bounced back after a default. 40states default in the US would not mean the US will go bankrupt, I meant it would be in bad way silly.
I did say something about US exports becoming cheaper and highly trained financial workers and other experts who have lost their jobs go it on their own setting up new sectors and industries just like in Iceland if faced with bankrupcy....as in if their economy bottomed like Iceland and Argentina.
I put the Icelandic and Argentinian economies in the same boat in that order for a reason as in bad and worst event situation and also because they tanked both owing a hell load more then they had in their entire GDP and have been able to slid/slidding back as in the case of Iceland on the wings of simlar factors- ie highly skilled labour force and lowering of their currencies value increasing exports or the bottoming out factor.....
Iceland had to obtain emergency funding from the International Monetary Fund and a range of European countries in 2008. The foreign exposure of Icelandic banks, whose loans and other assets totaled more than 10 times the country's GDP, became unsustainable.
Iceland's three largest banks collapsed in late 2008. The country secured over $10 billion in loans from the IMF and other countries to stabilize its currency and financial sector, and to back government guarantees for foreign deposits in Icelandic banks. Iceland's GDP is around $12bn by the way.
Now Iceland's economy expanded in the first quarter at its fastest pace since its near-meltdown, powered by a surge in exports, tourism and domestic consumption. GDP grew at 2.4% quarter-on-quarter in the first three months of the year. All this after Iceland definitely experienced one of the most severe recessions in the world when the markets crashed in 2008.
The Icelandic economy is looking rather healthier and u just need to go there and talk to and see the many professionals who lost their jobs and have now started small businesses to understand that it wont be in rough too long. Great place to invest right now.
Argentina on the other hand had defaulted on its debt, its GDP had declined by nearly 20% in four years, unemployment reached 25%, and the peso had depreciated 70% after being devalued and floated. However commodity exports triggered a rebound in GDP from 2003 onwards. This trend has been largely maintained, creating over five million jobs and encouraging domestic consumption and fixed investment.
A lot of wastage and unnecessary financial burdens were lifted by the default and bankruptcies that took place afterwards. The old wasteful public companies were either trimmed down and privatized or chopped up and sold leaving a competitive lean, mean, hungry, innovative and efficient private sector.
Both these economies are labeled sustainable because like many developed countries they have the machinery and knowhow to climb back if ever hit by disaster. China on the other hand if hit before her reforms are finished will sink into playing second fiddle in the middle lower incoming earning economy bracket for a really long time.
Sorry I thought I was writing to someone with at least half a healthy brain and can read. Pinky promise from now on I'll be writing in less complicated manner for ur high IQ so as not to buffle u again.
....now read this again and tell me where I said the Icelandic and Argentine both defaulted, tell me. Prove me wrong that u can read.

China Surpassed U.S. in Patent Filings

December 12, 2012

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) announced yesterday that global intellectual property filings continued to grow in 2011, with China's patent office receiving more applications than any other country's.

The World Intellectual Property Indicators 2012 report highlights a 7.8% worldwide increase in patent filings to 2.14 million for 2011, the second straight year of more than 7% growth.

"Sustained growth in IP filings indicates that companies continue to innovate despite weak economic conditions," said WIPO Director General Francis Gurry in a statement. "This is good news, as it lays the foundation for the world economy to generate growth and prosperity in the future."

China's State Intellectual Property Office received 526,412 applications in 2011, followed by the U.S.'s 503,582 and Japan's 342,610. China saw 34.6% growth in patent filings in 2011, according to WIPO.

Trademark applications also reached a record-high 4.2 million applications , with especially strong growth in China (31.2%), Brazil (21.6%), and the U.K.(16.4%).

“There are two stereotypes about schooling in east Asia: the students work extremely hard, and the learning is by rote. In fact, things are more complicated, as the OECD’s latest global schools survey has shown.

“Shanghai came top in the Pisa [Programme for International Student Assessment] survey, with three other east Asian territories in the first five. But not all east Asian countries did well, says the OECD’s Andreas Schleicher, adding that it’s innovative thought that is assessed. Shanghai schools aren’t turning children into walking textbooks: they are channelling their ability and enthusiasm into exceptional results.

How?...

“The Pisa survey tests 15-year olds, with a rotating focus on maths, reading and science. The emphasis is on broad learning: literacy tests involve reasoning, for example. In the three previous editions - 2000, 2003 and 2006 - Finland came top. But this year, with the focus on reading, Finland was displaced by Shanghai, with South Korea second, Hong Kong fourth and Singapore fifth…

“So why did Shanghai do so well? The OECD points to Chinese school reforms: it was impressed by the initiative shown by teachers, who are now better paid, better trained and keen to mould their own curricula. Poor teachers are speedily replaced. China has also expanded school access, and moved away from learning by rote.

“The last point is key: Russia performs well in rote-based assessments, but not in Pisa, says Schleicher, head of the indicators and analysis division at the OECD’s directorate for education. China does well in both rote-based and broader assessments.

“If schools did well just because of hard work, then countries with similar cultures should see similar results. But… Shanghai beats Taiwan, and Hong Kong beats Macau...

“Is Shanghai the exception or the rule in Chinese school standards? In some countries, major cities underperform the national average, but that seems less likely in China, given the coast-interior disparities. However, the OECD did look at some rural areas, and found they matched Shanghai’s quality... What the Pisa results suggest is that, just like Chinese companies, Chinese schoolchildren won’t be pushed to the back of the class.”

The OECD noted that even in rural China results approached average levels for the OECD countries:"Citing further, as-yet unpublished OECD research, Mr Schleicher said:“We have actually done Pisa in 12 of the provinces in China. Even in some of the very poor areas you get performance close to the OECD average."

The finding that Shanghai’s secondary school education is now ranked number one in the world by the OECD’s survey, which is regarded as the most comprehensive international comparison, is of course striking. But a second indicative development, at the highest level of the academic world, is that it has been announced that Shanghai’s Jiao Tong University has attracted as full time professor the winner of the Nobel prize for medicine, and discoverer of HIV, Luc Montagnier.

Taking first some more detail on the OECD study, the PISA report is published every three years. It is based on a study of half a million school students, at age 15, in more than seventy economies. The report found that Shanghai came ahead of the lead countries, South Korea and Finland, and was placed first in each of the categories of reading, maths and science - with skill in complex mathematics found to be more than eight times the OECD average:‘The province of Shanghai, China, took part for the first time and scored higher in reading than any country. It also topped the table in maths and science. More than one-quarter of Shanghai’s 15-year-olds demonstrated advanced mathematical thinking skills to solve complex problems, compared to an OECD average of just 3%.’

You live in the allusion that nobody in the Western world could possibly conspire to keep information from you and yet the use of the official secret's act is designed to do just that if you get too close. It’s use is often designed to hide scandals rather than to protect the nation. However, my favourite is because it is 'not deemed to be in the public interest' where they don’t even have to invoke a law to protect themselves from a backlash. The evidence is there if you only have the intelligence and inclination to dig it out.
Here, for example is on a different topic from the radioactive pollution is a quote from John Piliger that illustrates the point that I make about the media being selective in their publications for a number of reasons including protecting the public:
"In Peter Watkins' remarkable BBC film, The War Game, which foresaw the aftermath of an attack on London with a one-megaton nuclear bomb, the narrator says: "On almost the entire subject of thermo-clear weapons, there is now practically total silence in the press, official publications and on TV. Is there hope to be found in this silence?"
The truth of this statement was equal to its irony. On 24 November, 1965, the BBC banned The War Game as "too horrifying for the medium of broadcasting". This was false. The real reason was spelt out by the chairman of the BBC Board of Governors, Lord Normanbrook, in a secret letter to the Secretary to the Cabinet, Sir Burke Trend.
"[The War Game] is not designed as propaganda," he wrote, "it is intended as a purely factual statement and is based on careful research into official material... But the showing of the film on television might have a significant effect on public attitudes towards the policy of the nuclear deterrent." Following a screening attended by senior Whitehall officials, the film was banned because it told an intolerable truth. Sixteen years later, the then BBC director-general, Sir Ian Trethowan, renewed the ban, saying that he feared for the film's effect on people of "limited mental intelligence". Watkins' brilliant work was eventually shown in 1985 to a late-night minority audience. It was introduced by Ludovic Kennedy who repeated the official lie."
One has to conclude from the above that when Sir Ian Trethowan renewed the ban, saying that he feared for the film's effect on people of "limited mental intelligence", he was thinking of you.
Ok Mr paranoid schizophrenic.

We believe you, just put down the bread knife.

I hope you're right about the usa oil producing capacity and the revoluruob of 3d printing, if it goes as people expect, usa and Europe will continue ro be the dominant world powers, China have been over hyped to death, in reality they have no creativity or creative industries, no media or cultural empires or global influence, no famous brands or companies, no hi tech industries and an uneducated poor population, they are no where near to reaching tbe level of usa and europe

China manufactures goods for foreign countries, they do not create their own goods for their own companies, that's why there are very few well kniwn Chinese companies, this is a big problem for China because they lack creative minds and marketing knowledge to build their own products or create their own famous companies, to be a superpower you need hard power and soft power, America have both in huge amounts, China only have a little hard power and absolutely no soft power at all, the entire culture of the world is and will continue to be western

Can Oil Shale Change The World?

America’s oil shale reserves are enormous, totaling at least 1.5 trillion barrels of oil.

Read more: Oil Shale Reserves http://dailyreckoning.com/oil-shale-reserves/...

.
.

Oil shale in China is an important source of unconventional oil. A total Chinese oil shale resource amounts of 720 billion tonnes, located in 80 deposits of 47 oil shale basins. This is equal to 48 billion tonnes of shale oil.[1] At the same time there are speculations that the actual resource may even exceed the oil shale resource of the United States.[2]

Investment by Chinese companies into the U.S. shale market is already underway. The two largest oil companies in China have made significant investments. CNOOC has partnered with Chesapeake Energy on production ventures and Sinopec joined with Devon Energy in a similar agreement. Both deals were minority interests in actual gas production, and were generally viewed as investments to try to learn the fracking process by being part of the exploration and production team. How successful these early ventures will be for exporting fracking know-how and technology remains to be seen. Regardless of how these early investments play out, the interest by other companies – energy companies, manufacturing companies, technology companies and others – to be part of the Chinese shale revolution is ready and significant.

As this shopping binge starts in earnest, and there are indications of that happening right now, the price of fracking technologies, from valves and pipes to chemicals and advanced analytics, along with actual extraction expertise is going to rise here in the U.S. as Chinese firms bid to acquire the necessary technology and expertise to accelerate its own shale gas revolution. How significant the technology and expertise price increases will be remains to be seen, but the Chinese appetite, and the likely pace of acquisition over the next few years will likely have a material impact on not just the service and technology, but on the cost of production here in the U.S.

^ that is natural gas

China is reported to have massive unconventional natural gas resources.

Technically recoverable gas reserves are forecast to be 36 trillion cubic meters, making it the world’s largest reserve pool according to EIA, and nearly 50% larger than the U.S.’s reserves.

In the country’s most recent 5-year plan it laid out a goal of 6.5 billion cubic meters of production by 2015, a steep increase from the current production level of zero.

YUANBA, China | Wed Apr 20, 2011 8:39am EDT

(Reuters)- China has spent tens of billions of dollars buying into energy resources from Africa to Latin America to slake the unquenched thirst for fuel from its growing industry and burgeoning cities.

But China may have more energy riches under its own soil than policy makers in the world's second-largest economy ever dared imagine.

Just over a year ago, Beijing awakened to a technology revolution that has unlocked massive reserves of gas trapped within shale rock formations in the United States.

Once deemed too costly to extract, shale gas has turned around U.S. dependence on foreign gas imports. Just a few years ago, the United States was building scores of expensive facilities to import liquefied natural gas (LNG), looking at booming long-term demand forecasts and wondering which countries would supply the huge volume of imports it needed.

Instead, the United States is turning import facilities into export terminals, because its shale gas reserves are estimated to be big enough to meet domestic demand for 30 years. This is an American dream that China wants to emulate.
