I was looking at these over at mint.com and noticed that nobody has referenced these on this site. I know you guys discuss this stuff a lot. Note the time it takes Russia to build a warehouse. But they do own us in chess grandmasters.

Discuss...

An eye-opener, that was! The thing that struck me the most was Alcohol Consumption between the US and Russia. To hear the Russian women talk, they claim their men just lay around drunk all the time, but the chart shows us as nearly on a par with them.

I reckon I need to tell Natasha not to pack her bags just yet...


On another front, it looks to me like if the US and Russia could give up the pissin' contest and ally up, the rest (read: China in particular) wouldn't have a prayer.

Wait until the NAU is implemented.
The major factors belong to China. Growth and Labor Force.

It will even up quite a bit.
But then again, the Asians are forming a union also. www.abovetopsecret.com...&flagit=513470

LOL

Maybe if Russia got more broadband and roller coasters their happiness index would rise.

Excellent thread!

I find it curious that both Russia and China each holds vastly more gold reserves than the US.

I recall an article a few months back that China would not allow any gold to leave the country, and was buying it up as much as was reasonably possible.

In view of the dollar, seems like a prudent thing to do.

I was surprised to see the size of the Chinese navy.

Look at US/China homicide rates then compare US/Russia rates.

Very interesting graphs.

I expect to see China and Russia work closer together in the coming years.


Intelligence Report Lists Russia, China As Top U.S. Concerns


www.rferl.org...


Russia and China bolstered their close but increasingly imbalanced relationship on Tuesday when Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin ushered through a tentative gas supply agreement and deals worth $3.5 billion.

Putin's talks with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao also covered the international hotspots on which the countries share many views, but with China's economy steaming ahead while Russia has lagged during the global downturn, they focused on nurturing ties in trade and energy.

Slayer, if we didn't have so many "hood's" in the larger cities, our homicide rates would plummet.

Most of our murders, the VAST majority, are gang/drug related, usually contained in certain sections of a city.

They kill each other over $60.00.

Which isn't too bright.

Which normally would improve the overall IQ of our population, except for the fact that they breed like rats.

Did you notice Russia and the US are almost neck and neck as far as military spending compared to GDP?

I don't know where the hell they're getting their numbers from but this stuff is utterly laughable. Chinese expatriates here freely admit that only a third of their nation lives in anywhere near first world standards.

Heck, let's just dismiss the China or Russia numbers and look at something more reliable, the UN (which is actually described by many as a "hate America club").

The UN in its human development index ranks America #13. Russia is 71 and China is 92.

See for yourself.

They were a side by side comparison to each other. No % or numbers were given.

I would like to see some hard numbers on these as well. These graphs are pretty ballparkish.

What up?

Hey thanks for posting this thread. Even though it's not completely accurate it does give a fair visual for a at a glance reference.

The real look see should be

US, Russia, China, European Union

Vs

the rest of the world...

Because all of the Above have been playing a big Fat game of Good Cop Bad Cop with the rest of the Planet since the UN was formed and said nations became a part of the security council anyway with even our own citizens respectively being periodically abused to make this order concrete

I am and have my whole life actually been of the Opinion the members of the UN security council have been in this together all along, selling arms and building a huge military and playing sides from day 1 to create an appearance of being enemies when in reality it's the rest of the world we exploit together. The NWO as many like to put it.

Obviously we have taken the role of "Bad Cop" off Russia hands for the near future...

The fact that we have the largest nuclear arsenal and have proven our willingness to use them, is the reason people hesitate to # with us.

Did you look and see what the comparison was between US/Russia was? They have more. So they have the largest arsenal.

Thanks for posting those.

One interesting fact is that Russia has about 1/2 the population of the US (and a whole lot larger land mass). They are really hurting in that department as population affects things like work force and available troop strength. Russian population is headed downward at a much greater rate than either the US or China. The women don't want to have kids over there, an increasing trend all across the Western nations.

If you look at the graph comparing "paid maternity leave", the Russians have a whole lot and the US has very little. All across Europe and Russia they pay women well to have babies in terms of maternity leave and other benefits.

Do to our higher immigration from the south the US hasn't had to face the decreasing population problem yet.

We used to worry about the population exploding and all that. Not true any more in most first would countries!
