People think China has the world's largest economy. Not even close.

 United States18,569,100
 European Union[n 1][19]16,408,364
2 China[n 2]11,218,281
3 Japan4,938,644

That's nominal GDP, according to the IMF.  

In fact, if you combine Japan, Brazil, India, Mexico and Canada, those five economies add up to more than China ( 11,567 vs 11,218 ).   Seems a little different if you look at it that way.

The Anglosphere is at 24,166 ( the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand ).


  1. Charts like this are always very interesting. We always hear about what a powerhouse Russia is, but they come in at #12 and are only 80% of Canada, and half of India (and below France, Italy and Brazil...).

    Mexico is 2X Taiwan!

    And for those NAFTA fans, Canada and Mexico combined are about 14% of the US. Who needs whom?
