Is it so hard to get the figures right

The economy of the European Union (nominal GDP) in 2009 was € 11,805.66 billion ($16,447.26 billion in 2009) (source IMF, quoted in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy...European_Union).

The conclusion that if the American economy would have been larger "USA wins" is just ridiculous, it is not a sports game: who has the largest economy . For instance most people in Europe enjoy much longer vacations than people in the USA. As a consequence GDP per capita is lower, but you cannot say that welfare in a broad sense is lower. Economists use a broad definition of welfare and welfare is not the same as GDP per capita. GDP gives just an indication of the amount of goods produced in one year (definition: the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time).

For instance GDP doesn’t include negative external effects on the environment. GDP does not say anything about which goods are produced (expenditures to restore the environmental damage in the Gulf, military expenditures, building WTC one, cosmetic surgery, advertisement, you name it ).

See for a description of the limitations of GDP as a measure of measuring the health of an economy and alternatives of GDP as a measure of well being:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GDP_per_capita

On topic: WTC one is becoming a beautifull building. Maybe when the whole project is finished it is time to visit New York again (visited in 1987 and 1994 )(of course with a carbon compensated flight).

Very close to topping out I would say. At or right around 100 floors would be my guess. Although I might be getting too hopeful

Why do you say that. It isn't even taller, then the tallest buildings around it. And none of them are over 800 feet tall.
