    Will China's government fiscal revenue catch up India's GDP?

    According to the recent data, by the end of 2011, China's government fiscal revenue was 1.64 trillion U.S. dollars (10 trillion yuan) with grew 24.8 percent year-on-year.
    (China's 2011 fiscal revenue up 24.8% to 10 trillion yuan - Xinhua | English.news.cn)

    And By 2011, India's GDP is 1.85 trillion U.S. dollars with growth rate around 6%
    (India Home).

    My questions

    1. According to current economic situation on both nations, by the end of 2012 or 2013, Will China's fiscal revenue catch up India's GDP?

    2. If China would catch up, how long this trend would last?

    3. How dose this figure affect the military modernization and competition between India and China, will the gap between China & India on this field get wider?

    4. Will this figure make the gap between China and India on human development index on per capital getting wider?

    5. What's the impact on R&D and education system gap?

    Welcome all Chinese members and Indian members come to give constructive and serious comments, thx!

    it is a matter of time.

    In 3 years, CHina's nominal GDP will surpass 10 trillion USD....

    in 2020, the nominal GDP perhaps will not be ranked by US dollar any more,but with RMB.

    China is a one-legged horse. If it succeeds, it will succeed spectacularly, but if it fails, it will fail disastrously. There is no middle ground. Since 1949, China has already seen both extremes-the millions of deaths and destruction caused by the Great Leap and Cultural Revolution as well as the sterling successes of the economic progress since 1979.

    No one can tell which way China will go in the future, but India will trod along slowly but surely just as she has been doing since 1947. There have been no major disasters unlike China, but also no world-beating achievements either.

    This is a perfect real life race between the tortoise and the hare. :)

    i dont think i need to care if China's government fiscal revenue is catching up India's GDP......with or without india prc has its own problems to deal with and if we really need a yardstick to measure against maybe the us is the only 1 we need to really consider.....

    What i wanna say is: Some people are still debating that India have superiority on Military and technology. But they are in fact comparing a nation with 5 times GDP as India.If you just the real data not the emotion to compare the things, the conclusion would be: game over!

    For example in military spending: If both nation keep the same ratio of GDP on military spending let's say 2% of GDP, China's military should be much more stronger both on quality and quantity since 5 times budget really means a lot. Let alone most Chinese major weapon systems are home made and those money finally benefit its own industrial chain. But India's money are more used for foreign purchase (like fighters and AC). So the real gap might be not 5 times or even more...

    No one cares about GDP, what we care about are upgrades of industry chains and resource&energy security.

    So what? I could care less.

    One has to question why Chinese governmetn revenue is growing at 24.8% rate while our personal income is growing much slowly. I just can't trust our "people servant" officials can prudently manage those money.

    China's nominal GDP is 4x that of India, not 5x. In 2004, China's GDP was $1.93 trillion.

    China's 2004 GDP ranks 6th in world economy

    So India is ~7.5 to 8 years behind China. In real dollar terms, it may be more like 9 years.

    As China develops, your GDP growth rate will inevitably fall. It will be aided by the aging Chinese workforce (median age of China = 35.9 years). On the other hand, India will continue to grow for at least a decade after China slows just because India is much behind in the developmental race. The other factor that helps India is that it has one of the youngest workforces in the world (median age of India = 25 years), so the growth will last longer-India will grow rich before it grows old, while China is already growing old before growing rich enough.

    The scope of this difference between China and India cannot be underestimated. According to UN figures, China's dependency ratio has already flattened since 2010. In the next twenty years, China will only add a net number of 10 million workers to its labour force. In comparison, India will add 241 million people in the same time period.

    Demographic outlook for the BRICs varies greatly; India's working-age population to rise by stunning 240m in 20 years compared with 10m in China

    In short, yes, China at the moment has done very well and its economic policies and good management have made it the world's 2nd largest economy. Even if China slows down, it is destined to become one of the world's top three economies and military powers in the next two decades. However, China will not enjoy total world domination unlike the US since WWII because India will jostle with China for the top spot and US will be a very close #3.

    The top three countries will likely carve the world among themselves....China will demand a free hand in East Asia, the US will continue to be top dog in the North Atlantic/Europe and India will control much of the Indian Ocean region. The ME will be a zone where the three will likely co-operate to ensure uninterrupted flow of energy supplies.
