    Australia would be near the top at this time with unemployment at around 5% and a healthy banking system...... for now.

    It's not England that's for sure, more and more of our companies seem to be going under every day.  My guess would have been Australia too, I've heard that they've been pretty unaffected by the whole thing.

    I think the USA probably consumes the greatest share of resources (by a long shot) currently, but my money would be on China for the future.

        To be honest EK I based my choices on little more than my own ill-informed biased guesses rather than any factual evidence, but I felt like I should have some kind of stab at answering your question. smile

        I guess the U.S. because it's such a money rich consumer driven society, like England but even more so.  So I guess I meant everything from food upwards, but again I get most of my info about America from Bill Bryson and Michael Moore.

        China I said merely due to their huge population, which I expect to become more consumer driven and resource hungry very soon.

        But again, intellectual topics aren't really my area, I usually stick to talking about boobs or fish, I'm way out of my depth here! big_smile
