1. United States
GDP per capita, now: $47,200
GDP per capita, 2050: $85,500
By Goldman's projections, the U.S. economy will be the second-largest in the world in 2050, dwarfed only by China, whose financial system is forecast to be then nearly twice as large as America's. But again, GDP per capita tells a different story. America's GDP per capita will make it the wealthiest nation surveyed by Goldman Sachs in 2050, when each Yankee will produce more than $85,000 annually. By contrast, China's GDP per capita will reach just over $40,000 by 2050, meaning the Asian country will own the world's largest economy but as a nation won't even be as rich as Mexico (projected 2050 GDP per capita: $47,500).
