The US could lose its crown as the world's most powerful economy as soon as next year, and it's unlikely to ever get it back
The United States of America could lose its position as the world's biggest economy as soon as next year — and once that happens, it is unlikely to regain the top spot as developing Asian economies power ahead.According to research released this week by Standard Chartered Bank, China is likely to become the world's biggest economy at some point in 2020.

France’s govt exaggerates Yellow Vest threat to justify measures of political repression
The early XX century French monarchist philosopher, Charles Maurras, wrote: “The Republic is bad at governing but good at defending itself.” Seldom have these words seemed more true than during the Gilets Jaunes protests.I live right in the heart of Paris, overlooking the Prime Minister’s office, Hôtel Matignon, and a short distance from the scenes of some of the violence witnessed last Saturday. Ever since the Yellow Vests started to demonstrate at the beginning of December, I have seen, just outside my own front door, the massive police presence defending the seat of government while leaving the rest of the city, and indeed the rest of the country, to the mercy of rioters.Cars were burned only a few streets away from where the serried ranks of the CRS (special police) were scrupulously preventing pedestrians from walking to the shops, while the ministry whose gate was smashed in with a fork-lift truck on Saturday is only five minutes’ walk away.

Trump’s “national emergency” threat and the danger of presidential dictatorship
In the wake of President Trump’s nationally televised address Tuesday night, the political axis of the conflict over the border wall, which has led to the partial shutdown of the federal government, has clearly shifted. White House officials, including Trump himself, are openly threatening to declare a national emergency, under which Trump would assume quasi-dictatorial powers and use the US military to carry out his political objectives, including building the wall.In any other country, such an assumption of unchecked power by the chief executive would be described as rule by decree or an outright coup d’état. But in the United States, the complacent media and the compliant “opposition” party make no warnings and offer no resistance. In their official response to Trump Tuesday night, neither House Speaker Nancy Pelosi nor Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said anything about the declaration of a national emergency, although Trump began hinting at it last week.

US GDP (2018): around 20 trillion
China gdp (2018) 12-13 trillion.
Without being pessimistic, China still has some ways to go even with its rapid-growth rates. That it will overtake the US in the mid-2020s or in 2030 is still probably the best estimate

comrade, nominal gdp isn't very useful. you need PPP rates.

PPP rates 2017:

#2 USA: 19 trillion Int$

china is already a larger economy than the usa and has been so for a few years. still china of course will have to grow

and growth is useless if there is too much income inequality

I would argue that PPP is only useful for measuring living standards. In terms of global trade/economy, nominal gdp is really the only thing that matters because it shows how much buying power a nation has on the world, instead of national, markets.

I even question the value of PPP in some respects like the price of rice and rents maybe lower nominally in a third world country but if you want to buy a smartphone, an Xbox, or a new car chances are it costs just as much as in the developed world. Hell, some third world countries pay more for gas per gallon than major first world nations because they lack any domestic production.

I’m open to being convinced on this issue. For the Soviet economy PPP may have been more useful because it wasn’t a globally oriented market economy but China actually is.

All I can really say is that generalized commodity production drives prices down. Neoliberals are wrong in thinking that shipping bottlecaps from a factory in south america to China is less wasteful than producing the end product in one location. I may be cheaper in some absurd perverted way due to subsidies and company bribes from the oil industry.

Jayden Watson

All I can really say is that generalized commodity production drives prices down.
Right, but the real question is why haven’t the prices of these largely locally-sourced commodities went down or at least stayed stagnant.

Granted a fair number of them are services and not commodities per se but you would think with stagnant wages you would at least see stagnant prices for these services. Childcare workers get paid shit (and wage-theft is endemic) so why has even this service industry experienced 100%+ inflation?

Asher Gonzalez

There's more to it than just that. If industries have already been established it takes resources and energy to move them.

John Reyes

why haven’t the prices of these largely locally-sourced commodities went down or at least stayed stagnant.
Per category?
-Housing; There are more households now per head,in turn social housing has been neglected since the 70s, and most people can't afford the garish McMansions of the 80s, 90s and 00s. Rural areas are also emptying, with people moving to the cities. Causing housing prices to spike even after 07'.
-Medical Care; More elderly, less young. More diseases are treatable now, and this drives up end-of-life cost. Hospitals are overstretched, so something has to give.
-Childcare; Supply not keeping up with demand. Less stay-at-home parents (both working to make ends meet), especially in cities.
-College
More people going to university and staying longer, puts pressure on the supply side, while R&D has gotten more expensive. The college textbooks are a sophist scam though.

Benjamin King

Great post Nazi-poster! Do you have any explanation for why food and drink prices have inflated 50%? One would think that a commodity like food would, like other tangible commodities, be subject to forces of international competition and overproduction which might override inflationary monetary policies—as we see with some other commodities.

Labor in agriculture is probably more abused and less compensated than any other industry in the US. Do you think low wages are holding back technological innovation and therefore stalling a production-push that would ultimately be inflationary? Or is government subsidization to prevent overproduction in agriculture the key factor?
