Well, there are some areas where the USA dominates the world. For example, they collect the majority of the money we spend on movies because they have Hollywood. They had almost half of one million most popular websites on the internet. Also, USD is the most traded world currency which takes almost half of the total traded value. Having in mind that one act of currency exchange requires two currencies we can safely assume, that almost all trades involved USD from one side or another.
Surprisingly (at least for me) it does not have the largest army, it is not the biggest CO2 producer, not the biggest car producer.
Do you know any other indicators where the USA dominates the world?
