Who is beating America? The only one America is losing to is it's own corrupt politicians selling America out for personal gain. If by whining you mean doing something about it sorry, get used to it.

Dude China Surpassed America As World’s Largest Economy a couple of years ago. The world is changing. Power and resources are being shared in different ways.

Not even close.

You might get away with that statement if you use PPP, but that is highly influenced by currency fluctuation and manipulation.

Even if true, what does that possibly have to do with other countries using trade agreements to screw America and politicians getting fat off making it happen? What does it have to do with the demand for it to stop?

It is true..

Trade agrements benefit both parties economically. The USA has been the intsrumental hub for creating trade argements and rules for decades. These in many cases have been forced upon nations and are used as tools of ecomomic warfare.. and it worked for a long time letting a nation live off the back of other nations.

Things have changed and not everyone is playing by the same rules anymore. The loss of economic clout from the US is because other countries want a bigger part of the pie and thats fair enough.. USA some 5% of the worlds population using about 20% of the worlds resources.

Its not playing fair and the world is adjusting and waking up to this.
