Once again your mathematics is proved to be poor.
more industrial goods than the rest of the world= more than half of the total output
more than half of the total output=above 50%
40 is not above 50%
It also fails to justify stealing as much from Britain as is possible. Ignoring the moral aspects, it would have been better for Britain to reached a peace agreement or even surrendered. Of course should Britain have fallen or reached a peace agreement, the soviet union, and then the united states would be next. The US could stand up to Germany, sure. The whole of Europe and the soviet union? I'm sure that the phrase 'No chance in hell' is american in origin.
You are free to consider it waccy baccy, but it is generally called imperialism. You know, that thing that the united states tried at the end of the nineteenth century by trying to conquer some third world Latino countries, but failing and paying Spain $20 mil for their shitty little empire. Usually, a country can maintain an empire for centuries. The united states, although intending to be harsh on the peoples it conquered , couldn't hold them for a decade (with the exception of the small islands). Had this not been such a fuck up on the part of the united states, I’m sure you’d be gloating about it with all the pomp and circumstance that would be typical of the praise of any American success, no matter how minor.
I guess manifest destiny didn't get a chance to work its' magic like the mexican or French owned places that are now a part of the united states.
