USA Wins

(b) Eurozone economies contain 700 million people, with just over $15 trillion gdp (note US population of merely 310 million). (c) New gdp estimates say US economy is currently growing at a rate of 3.2%. (d) (and most importantly), while China's economy is booming around 10%, they are dealing with rapid and devastating inflation. They have 2 choices: either allow their currency to elevate which would lead to far less economic growth, OR keep their currency deflated and thus allow inflation keep rising, resulting in social and political instability.

That being said, Tower 1 looks great.
Perfect. The text is more intelligent than I've ever read here. I agree with every word you said.

And I'm sure the U.S. government will do everything to improve the economic situation. USA wins!

Don't know about you guys in NYC, but that was the weakest "blizzard" I've seen in a while. Hope all is well down South

Eurozone contains just 328 million people with 11.5 trillion gdp. The whole EU contains 500 million people with 14.793 trillion gdp.

The city dodged the hit this time - more of the a frozen rain/slush mixture of what's got on the ground... we could get another round of stormy weather this weekend, but the outlook is yet quite murky...

You're right. All of Europe however (not the same as the EU), contains 700 million people, couldn't find any GDP numbers for this after a quick search though.
