The U.S. economy is $14 trillion today. Compare that to China whose economy is about $3 trillion, Japan at $4 trillion, and Germany at $3 trillion. Go ahead and add in the UK at $3 trillion and the U.S. economy is still larger than all of them combined. Our economy is not only competitive, we’re ny far the world leader — the one others look up to.
