Economy > GDP: Countries Compared

DEFINITION: GDP at purchaser's prices is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are in current U.S. dollars. Dollar figures for GDP are converted from domestic currencies using single year official exchange rates. For a few countries where the official exchange rate does not reflect the rate effectively applied to actual foreign exchange transactions, an alternative conversion factor is used.

The latest Forbes magazine list of the world’s billionaires reveals that, despite his net worth dropping by US$100 million from last year, Microsoft founder Bill Gates is the world’s richest man for the eleventh year in a row, with a net worth of US$46.5 billion.

How rich is he? His net worth is greater than the 2002 GDP of all but 71 countries.

Fellow American billionaire S. Robson Walton of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is number 10 on the list, just ahead of the other Waltons at 11, 12 and 13. The Waltons’ combined wealth is over US$90 billion. That’s about the same as Belarus’s 2002 GDP, which was 57th-highest in the world.

All told, there are 691 billionaires in the world and their net worth is about US$2.2 trillion dollars (2002 GDP of fifth-place Germany, give or take US$40 billion).

It's notable of the Philippines trailing on the top 20 spot in 1960,unfortunately has dwindled economically between 30-50th spots over a few decades through ,a statistical economic data forecasting shows the Philippines could regain the worlds top 20 richest countries in the next 30-40 years through 2050.hmmm..seems the Philippines government has a lot of homework to do on this.sigh.. maybe the RP govt.would have to map out an investment plan for it's overseas population to participate and invest in the local stock market to fuel the dire need in economic integration of it's tens of billion of dollars pouring into the economy as weak Philippines exports would always stymie economic growth as historical grounds on economic growth has always been consumer spending or else consider mapping a new focus on industrialization like what it had done in 1960's pre Marcos era.There had been varied economic models maybe a Philippine model is yet to be realized moving through the first half a century..sigh..history repeats itself.Isn't all the riches in the world limited as we only have a planet to live in? If these Richer countries would only use up their overflowing economic resources to try and help feed the population of these less fortunate nations then only we could realize a world that is not stricken with grief in destitute areas of the world.poverty, war, corruption inequality distribution of wealth across nations will always be there, human nature is too powerful to create a nation or otherwise.lesser ignorance amongst the populations of these nations the richer they become.what an awful truth.

Guys - #2 is not missing. At the bottom of the graph, there is one for European Unions, which is below the United States and above Japan, therefore making it #2.

It is very interesting to compare India and China over their GDPs.

In 1962, India was almost on par with China.

Today, India's GDP is 1/3 of China's.

India cannot beat China in 1962, What makes Indians think they can beat China now?
