Where does Australia fit in the world economy?

Analysis conducted by the Boston Consulting Group, about 52% of all global growth between 2014-2016 can be attributed just to China and the United States.

After looking at the growth of every country, it turns out there are only 16 that are adding 1% or more growth to the whole picture.

According to Wikipedia Australia’s total wealth is 6.4 trillion dollars.

In 2012, we were the 12th largest national economy by nominal GDP and the 17th-largest measured by PPP-adjusted GDP, about 1.7% of the world economy.
