The United States of America is the largest and most important economy in the world. In 2010, The US economy was responsible for 20 percent of the world’s total GDP or US$ 14.624 trillion. America’s gross domestic product accounts for close to a quarter of the world total, and its military budget is thought to be almost as much as the rest of the world’s defense spending put together. Throughout its history, the United States has experienced steady growth in the labor force, a phenomenon that is both cause and effect of almost constant economic expansion. The number of workers and, more importantly, their productivity help determine the health of the U.S. economy. It is home to 29.6 million small businesses, 30% of the world’s millionaires, 40% of the world’s billionaires, as well as 139 of the world’s 500 largest companies.
