London School of Economics: The Global Economy's Shifting Centre of Gravity
In a London School of Economics paper, Professor Danny Quah says the global economy's "center of gravity" is moving eastward.
Quah's paper considers GDP produced by all countries around the globe. He finds that since 1980, the "center of gravity" moved from the western to the eastern world. In 2008, the center of gravity was pulled between Helsinki, Finland, and Bucharest, Romania. By 2050, this economic center of gravity is expected to be located between India and China, if trends continue.
As economic dominance moves eastward, so, too will global and political influence in the next 50-100 years. Many policy questions will not change, but approaches to them may, such as political and military interventions.
