The world is large. But how large? My question is partially answered when I came across this article on the world population. Which helps putting things in perspective for me. For instance I did not realize the Asia alone holds almost 60% of the world’s population.
It stands to reason that three out of the five most populous countries are in Asia. The top five are: 1) China (1.42 billion), 2) India (1.37 billion), 3) United States (329 million), 4) Indonesia (269 million), and 5) Brazil (212 million).
The United States is having a trade war with China. Motives aside, the sheer size of the economies, and not to mention the population, of the two countries, make this lose-lose proposition that much more unpalatable.
