GDP is not an appropriate index to measure the standard of living.
Although the GDP in China is higher than the UK, but the GDP per capita is still lower.
The population in China is 1300000000. For the UK, well, there is not as many
people as China. Once after the calculation, the GDP per capita can reflect that
the British are enjoying higher benefit of GDP, i.e. higher living standard.
(note: If the income is not evenly distributed to everyone, than it just can consider as a relevance)
