This year will be pivotal for the Global Economy. For the first time since that push the switch to the machine in the UK to the path of industrialization in the nineteenth century, the emerging economies will produce the majority of goods and services in the world. The population of the rich developed economies representing long ago a large proportion of world output, but the proportion come from a small group of the world's population. They are now less important than the economic side of the group of people who live in the poor countries of the world and middle-income countries.
This shift in the balance of Global economic power deep, a shift that economists expect to continue. The International Monetary Fund expects to increase the share of the emerging economies of global output to 55 per cent by the year 2018, what makes the description of "emerging" misplaced increasingly.
Although the standards of living in developed countries remains five times higher, but the gap is rapidly narrowing since 1990. In countries where the income which goes hand in hand with the growth, the title now is catching. In addition to the half stake owned by the emerging countries of the world output, is expected to adopt three-quarters of economic growth on the big vitality during the next five years.
Jim O'Neill, who retired some time ago from the post of chief economist at Goldman Sachs, likes to use compared blatant expression of transformation. He says that the annual growth rate of 8 per cent in China now equivalent in importance a growth rate of 4 per cent in the United States Wall Street Exposed. This is a sharp contrast compared to 1980, when China was recorded faster growth rates even now, but it was like a relatively small fish. In 1980 the growth rate was 10 per cent less important than 1 per cent in the United States.
The long haul to prominence for the Group of Seven economies outside the United States, Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Canada is not a surprise. Growth was strongest in emerging countries for more than 30 years, and per capita levels were incurred in developed countries during the past 20 years.
This superior performance becomes a striking stronger when seen over a longer time frame. The monitoring of the McKinsey Global Institute shift in the center of gravity for the global economy to the world economy, noting that it was in the north of Iceland in the middle of the North Atlantic in 1950. And then, when Japan began to take off, taking in the spacing of the United States heading towards the east. He is now moving quickly toward the southeast, where moved during the past decade, a distance of more than on any other contract. By 2025 it will be close to Novosibirsk in southwest Siberia.
Says Richard Dobz, a member of the Board of Directors McKinsey: "development and economic transition of China towards the cities is happening at a greater rate one hundred times the size of the shift in Britain, the first country turns to the direction of urban and industrial, and ten times faster than almost, and thus the industrial revolution the Chinese possess momentum stronger a thousand times of the British Industrial Revolution. "
This shift in Global economic marched at specific stages during the past 30 years. In the mid-eighties, the big developed countries still dominate global growth. The United States accounted for almost one-third, and the European Union about 20 per cent, and the six countries of the Group of Seven in the list of top ten countries with the largest contribution to global growth (only France was off the menu). There was a common expression says if the United States sneezed, the rest of global economy will infect the cold.
These figures were calculated using data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which is based on the purchasing power of the dollar for the local currency, and thus there was a similar weight equivalent to the rise in the amount of goods and services produced in different countries.
By the mid-nineties, the former giants of the Global economy out of the "Premier League". No longer Germany and Italy have conferred rank to be among the top ten countries in economic growth, and the importance of Japan fell by more than half. Existing and entered Mexico and Indonesia, a sign that the fact that a developing country and The high population density puts it on the road certainly lead to the ups and enter the adult league.
In the years prior to the 2008-2009 crisis, China has emerged to be so far the largest source of growth, and swept the charts to reach the fourth place against the backdrop of the rise in the production of goods and prices.
Britain was present in the list of the top ten countries, having enjoyed the same 30 years to catch up with the growth in the wake of recovery from being the sick man of Europe, but it looks on track to get out of the Premier League between 2012 and 2017. And will be a list of the top ten countries in terms of the country's share in global growth has completely moved out of Europe, are expected to form the entire European Union accounted for only 5.7 per cent of global growth. And will be India and China together almost half of global economic expansion.
This amounted to a shift in economic power limit makes any company concentrating its efforts in established economies, are actually living in the past.
