    Which country/countries can replace United States of America in next 20-25 Years?

    US is a huge economics and nuclear power with high per capita income and GDP, in short we can call US a superpower because of the impact it has on rest of the world. Do you think any nation can ever replace US in all these factors?

    I'm not saying it couldn't happen but it's unlikely to happen.
    A 'superpower' is a country that wields enough military, political and economic might to convince nations in all parts of the world to do things they otherwise wouldn't.
    Most of the other powerful countries are connected to one another or rely on each other or can easily be attacked by one another based upon their close proximity.
    If the U.S. chose to withdraw from the rest of the world it has the means and resources to sustain itself from within. The majority of countries are forced to {choose} between becoming a military power or having a high standard of living for their citizens.
    Because the U.S. is so rich in resources and self sufficient it was able to become a "superpower" even though it's a "baby" in terms of existence when compared to countries in Europe, Africa, or Asia and yet it is the home to some of largest and innovative companies in the world: Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Oracle, Disney, Coca Cola, General Motors, Exxon-Mobil, Google..etc
    The U.S. has only been around for about (240) years!
    Lots of people around the globe want to puruse their dreams in the U.S. They still see it as a place where anything is possible.

    If China manages to land on the moon, I'll say they rival the US. And they were in the first steps for that with their lunar probes and taiknaut. Whether they succeed is to be determined.
    China has the potential to rival or exceed the US because it has over a billion people and only has to have 1/4 our per capita income to equal us economically.
    India I would have said had that potential before finding out how deep the dollar a day poverty is there, as well as the socialist stupidity of their demonetization. In a nation where 2/3 of people live on daily cash wages to be told OK all large bills are useless beyond this point so you have to trade them in .... and the government didn't print enough replacements, new bills don't fit in ATMs, doesn't care about people dying because hospitals won't accept the large cash deposit for care, and applies a random 50% to 200% tax on large deposits if someone in authority says it must be income without proper taxes paid ... given that level of stupidity, I don't think India will become a world power in 25 years.

      Russia is a useful ally against Islam's resurgent conquering instinct but not a world power like the USSR was.
