And who would consume the most resources.
We were discussing this at home ,and one says China , one USA and two undecided.
What are your thoughts?
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.
Can you expand on that part a bit more MrV, do you mean oil?
And China because?.....( actually thats son no.3 question)
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.
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!
I was eating an entire blackcurrant cheesecake at the time and I think all the blackcurranty goodness went to my head.
god yer naughty !! boobs and fish
Oh I find Politics about as interesting as wet fish ,but we dont get out much lately so thought Id see what my global family thought.

OK, Junko, here we go.Why is China's economic growth, and likely supplanting of the U.S. economy as the world's largest a conspiracy?Yes, sometimes forum exchanges do amount to a game, sometimes a relevant one and sometimes a waste of time. But we still have the choice to be players or...

What country do you think will be the next superpower after the US?It seems that economy is the number one factor to be considered here, why because you can buy a lot of ammunition, further research and development if the country is improving economically, thus it is bigger chance for being a...

Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503983_162- … ?tag=stackConsidering the fact that CHINA thinks that they are the giants of the world and can do whatever they want when they want and without consequences, this wouldn't be a shock
