Interesting post in the Motley Fool today on long term prospects for the US: "For perspective, the U.S. is on track to grow its working-age population by the equivalent of six New York cities between now and 2050. China is on track to lose the equivalent of three United Kingdoms."
I think the bullish view on the US makes sense, but this graph is notably lacking all of South America, Africa and India where most signs suggest there is significant opportunity for economic dynamism over the next couple of decades. Regardless, I think this graph makes clear that global power dynamics will likely be very different in 2050.
