Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For Blinken numbers count?

And, as you've heard, by 2050, one in four people on the planet we share will be African. They will shape the destiny not only of this continent but of the world.

Should be easy to copy/paste this speech for Antony's visit to Beijing soon. 😂

Key Projections The World in 2050 | PMC - 2017 |

  • Six of the seven largest economies in the world are projected to be emerging economies in 2050 led by China (1st), India (2nd) and Indonesia (4th)

  • The US could be down to third place in the global GDP rankings while the EU27's share of world GDP could fall below 10% by 2050

  • UK could be down to 10th place by 2050, France out of the top 10 and Italy out of the top 20 as they are overtaken by faster growing emerging economies like Mexico, Turkey and Vietnam respectively
  • Of the G7 countries only the US (3rd) is projected to remain in top 7!

    Russia was 6th and would remain 6th, larger than any other European state. The Biden Blitzkrieg to force a war on the European continent is like throwing a wrench in well organized logistics of global economies. Doing it on its own merits won't cut it. The US needs more territory. Russia knows what it is defending to survive economically. Brussels and the EU-27 will be a footnote in history. Japan drops down to 8th followed by Germany 9th and quite optimistic a post-Brexit UK at 10th.
