Wouldn't it make more sense to make this quiz in real GDP instead of purchasing power parity? The latter is more a measure of the standard of living in a relevant country, not of its economic clout on the international stage (ie. how "big" it is).

It totally would. PPP makes some sense when looking at average wages or something like that. Makes almost no sense in this context.

I prefer PPP. If country A produces 10,000 widgets and country B produces 5,000, then country A has a bigger economy. ( Even if all the rich people in A are buying condos in B ).

Okay so what if country A produces 10,000 widgets, and country B produces 10,000 widgets, but the widgets in country B cost less to produce because country B has severely depressed wages, and much lower overhead because real estate in country B is cheaper (and lower quality) and there are fewer regulations and taxes etc, and in addition the widgets from country B are worth less because they're made of sub standard materials and therefore they sell on the international market for less, bringing in a much smaller amount of cash to country B which is one among many reasons why country B never catches up to country A in terms of HDI, but because PPP is very bad at assessing what exactly a widget is since they're not considering most of the above the two economies end up being valued at being the same size? Because that's closer to how PPP works.

You could argue that the exact same croissant is more pleasurable to eat in a Paris cafe then on a noise Beijing street. I'd agree. There are legitimate arguments in favor of using nominal GDP. But PPP is both less volatile year to year and more highly correlated with life expectancy.

But it's not the exact same croissant. That's just one of many problems.

As for correlation to life expectancy, that might have to do with goods and services including healthcare (and food) in countries being priced so that people can afford them.

The Vatican GDP would nowhere near enough to qualify for this Top 10 list, which makes "Not counting the Vatican" in the instructions a bit odd.

Well, these are total GDP, so the population disparity alone makes a huge difference. No single country in Europe has anywhere near the population of China and India, so it makes sense they don't compare that way. Per capita though, a very different story.

With Russia post the collapse of the ruble being among the cheapest countries in Europe now, and the UK being among the most expensive, this might be an effect of using PPP, but I don't know.
