well, I find one interesting article.

Checking these current price statistics against international parity purchasing powers (PPPs), which takes into account different price levels in different countries, confirms the same result. Measured by PPPs in 1980, the first year for which World Bank data is available, only 1.3 per cent of the world's population lived in countries with lower GDP per capita than China and 73.0 per cent in countries with a higher one. By 2010 only 31.5 per cent of the world's population lived in countries with a higher GDP per capita than China.

Is it 'lived' or 'lives?'

Nah, it is US who print the dollar, they have total control over it, we are just like you and rest of the world.

Not bad. In 10 years India will do similar things, too.
