China’s surging economy is set to overtake 56 countries in the world’s per-capita income rankings during the quarter-century through 2025, the International Monetary Fund has projected, saying that by that date, China will rank 70th in the world on the metric, putting it close to joining the richest one-third of nations. Bloomberg reports that the Asian powerhouse is forecast to have per-capita GDP, adjusted for purchasing power, equal to $25,307 in 2025, taking it past Argentina, one of the richest countries in the world a century ago but now mired in debt and currency crises. Turkmenistan is projected to be the only country climbing further up the rankings than China, advancing 58 spots. There are also big gains for Armenia, Georgia, Vietnam and Bangladesh, while Namibia is forecast to have mild growth over the period, with 2025 per-capita GDP of just over $10,000.
