And while America currently leads the global GDP race, China is the prohibitive favorite for these next 30 years.
Most Americans believe China is already the world’s leading economic power, even though the U.S. is still far and away the GDP leader, with $15 trillion of the global GDP, or 25% of the current economic market share.
