For all the alleged stupidity of the American People, a meme which our Saudi-owned media allows to be spread all over the world, the actual facts are demonstrated in one simple graphic:
Population and Productivity Comparison: China, EU, USA, and Japan
What this shows is that the United States, having the same land area as China and with only 4.3% of the world population compared to China’s 18.5%, and even with a corrupt U.S. government that destroys jobs, over-regulates and steals absolutely everything from the citizens that it can get its hands on, the people of the United States still manage to produce almost twice what China produces. It is this amazing level of productivity that is fueling all the evil in the world, because it is almost all completely stolen from us, even unto future generations.
Below we compare the population and GDP figures of the top 4 economies (or economic regions) in the world according to 2014 nominal GDP figures: China, the European Union, the United States of America, and Japan.
