BRICS: GDP Aims To Lead in Global GDP & PPP
A recent report from Goldman Sachs highlights that the U.S. GDP could drop to third place by 2075. BRICS countries China and India will have a bigger GDP than that of the US, according to the investment bank’s analysis. China and India’s GDP could reach $57 trillion and $52.5 trillion, respectively. However, the US GDP could remain at the third spot at $51.5 trillion, the investment bank estimates.

The development could end the traditional financial order as we know it and lead to a new world order. The next few decades could tilt the power from the West to the East and limit America’s domination in the global sphere.
