comment Why is the USA the world's strongest country?
@TomAu I would say that the power of an economy is best measured by GDP. To achieve a high GDP, it certainly helps to have a high GDP per capita. This is the reason why the US economy is roughly double the size of the Chinese. Holland is not a world economic power because it has too few people. Japan is, because it has both high GDP per capita and many people. I am not saying that a small land area causes wealth, I am saying that it does not affect wealth significantly. Japanese policies during the wars were obviously not sound, and should not be used as proof of anything.

comment Has the accounting services industry ever been disrupted?
@NewAlexandria Thank you for attempting to fix the question. Unfortunately, since we are now only getting examples from the accounting business, and not business services in general, I do not thing that I will get any answers that will help me in my case. I also do not believe that we will get any answers at all, since the service that this business delivers is a very traditional one.

@kubanczyk I have attempted to clarify the question now. I had not thought about markets getting disrupted by government intervention or similar. I was more thinking about disruptions happening "naturally" in a liberal market like the one I describe the last paragraph.

comment Were well-connected Germans able to park their sons in Norway during WWII?
I believe that Norway was initially invaded by merely 30000 soldiers, so I am curious to get the half a million troops confirmed.

Land area and agriculture do not matter much when it comes to GDP per capita. Holland and Japan are examples of countries with small area per person, while also having a high GDP per capita.

If one would consider the EU to be a country, it would have been the biggest economy in the world. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_the_European_Union

comment How much faster were the printing presses than hand writing?
I am missing the number of words per page to estimate exactly how much faster it was for each man-hour. I find it interesting to understand whether we are talking 10, 100 or 1000 times faster for the first presses.
