The chart above shows the world’s 40 biggest economies individually, but grouped by colour into continents.The Asian bloc clearly has a larger share than anywhere else, representing just over a third (33.84%) of global GDP.  That’s compared to North America, which represents just over a quarter, at 27.95%. Europe comes third with just over one-fifth of global GDP (21.37%). Together, these three blocs generate more than four-fifths (83.16%) of the world’s total output.Brazil’s economy has contracted in the last year by 3.5%, the only one in the top 10 to do so.
