    In 50 years time, India will be a more prominent world super power than China if you consider the growth factors. For current times, yes I suppose you are right.
    Be careful of relying on projections, especially 50 year ones. You need more than a lot of people.

    You misunderstood, China is projected to have greater population than India in 2055 but India's economy is projected to be stronger due to a more sustainable economy, and a larger middle class among other factors

    Projections do have some merit behind them. Of course, they don't reflect the exact trend but they are usually close enough to draw a semi-accurate conclusion.

    Take a moment and look at the bold phrases i picked out for you buddy! Your comments are irrelevant, untrue and reflect your total lack of knowledge and intellectualism to maintain a debate (looking at your comment I'm not very surprised )

    America has a lot of power and influence around the world, and the best military in terms of both size and capability. No other nation in the world can overpower the US when it comes to military. If they ever decided to go to war with India (unlikely scenario), Europe and several other countries would most likely follow.

    Let's be honest, India is a dirt poor s*hithole. It's not the superpower that the media portrays it to be. Just stating the facts.

    country full of idiots where nearly 50% don't believe in evolution, not something I would consider great. There are definitely great parts about America but when you have a population of total mouth breathers it's very hard to call it the greatest on earth.
    Thats quite harsh to call anyone that doesn't believe in evolution stupid.

    not really. Either they are stupid, brainwashed, or the education system has failed them completely.

    I understand what you are saying. But regardless there's a lot of smart individuals that don't believe in evolution, doesn't mean they're stupid. However I do believe that their education system is quite bad (I do like the fact you can switch courses over in university) where they rely on SATS to determine if someone is "smart".

    This is subjective. A country maybe not stable at all but for the person who is from there, it might be great for them.

    The US is still the worlds leading superpower so in that sense it still is.

    Looking at individual metrics though, the US has many problems.

    Other way round. China's population is forecast to collapse and economic growth will at that point stall to Japanese levels (though by then it will be more or less number 1).

    India will carry on becoming wealthier with a larger population but it's less well managed than China and neither is prepared for a demographic crisis. India will end up nominally number 1 but China probably will be ahead in per capita. China is however probably going to fail too soon and not match US per capita income..
