If you ask someone which is the most powerful state in the world, most people would say United States, China or even Germany
However, the countries whose economies will rule the world in the next 10 or 20 years should bother us more, believe the experts.
The popular consulting company PwC has the answer to this question and created a top of the world’s most powerful countries (financially speaking) by 2050.
According to The Independent, by 2050 the world will not resemble anything that we know now because the economic and real environment will change completely.
The report generated by the guys from PwC was entitled “The long view: how will the global economic order change by 2050?” and it was mostly based on each country’s GPB.
Except for the United States, most influential economies from now such as Japan or Germany dropped a few spots and they were replaced by India and Indonesia.
‘The United States and Europe will constantly lose ground in comparison to China and India’, pinpointed the report meant to predict the financial situation from 2050.
Therefore, the overall ranking looks pretty much like this:
- China – 58,499 trillions
- India – 44,128 trillions
- U.S – 34,120 trillions
- Indonesia – 10,502 trillions
