China’s continued rapid economic growth (in 2010 it became the world 's second-largest economy), combined with the respectable international position they hold within political spheres and the power that the Chinese Government exerts over their people (consisting of the largest population in the world), resulted in debate over whether China is now a superpower or a possible candidate in the future.

Norway is around 56 billion dollars in debt and that drastically differs from our 19 trillion. Ireland and around 28 other countries all are a part of the European Union and contribute much yet they all joined together in financial aid in order to in a way hide the fact each individually don’t generate as much.
