The countries to be discussed are as follows:

Germany, Britain, France, Italy, and Spain from the European Subcontinent

Japan, South Korea, and Australia from Asia-Pacific

USA and Canada from North America

It's a 10-country competition in industry (NOT SERVICE NOR AGRICULTURE NOR ENERGY & RESOURCES).

Rank the countries.

I think that UK is grossly overrated.... due to their diplomatic influence(thanks US) they
seem larger than what they actually are by themselves.. besides the riduculously overvalued currency(pound) is undermining their industrial competitiveness.

2. Japan
3. Germany
4. S. Korea
5. France
6. Spain
7. Italy
8. UK

I agree with ejd03... Taiwan is clearly ahead Australia...
I deliberately leave Taiwan out because some people may again ask "Is Taiwan a country..? blabla~".

It's about Industy not economy.

Defenitly China is top. In Europe most countries only have about 20 - 40% of the economy. The US has 20%

China has industry and construction of 52.9% of their GDP!

US has GDP of $ 11,750,000,000,000
China $ 7,262,000,000,000

20% of 11 trillions are ~2 trillions
50% of 7 trillions are ~4.5 trillions

That's acutally a sign that China's industry ISN'T competitive. Or, at least, not productive.

and why do you only choose those countries??? :eek2:
Ah...then what countries do you specifically add to the thread? I will think about the remaking of the thread if many people want to add more countries. But I was also thinking about including Brazil, India, Mexico, and China, but in that case, other developing countries are, I think, also qualified for being included on the list, which makes the list too lengthy.

kyenan,is software a kind of industrial product?
Is software industrial product...? well.... it may be so, but was not in my original consideration.
I think you can make two rankings, one that includes softwares and another one that does not include it.
