Although the existing G20 members account for about 80 to 85% of global GDP, many criticise that the group lacks fair representation. So adding 10 more members will make representation even more compelling. Which ten will you add?

My picks are:
Spain
Netherlands
Poland
Iran
Pakistan
Philippines
Thailand
United Arab Emirates
Egypt
Nigeria


No new members from North America, South America and Oceania since these continents have been fairly represented in the G20 group already.

They don't want to. Then again why would they? What exactly has this feel-good club contributed to the world other than bringing some business to the hotels and golf courts near the venue? Pointless garbage tbh. Instead of G20, we should probably call it "annual field trip for 20 egotistical warlords" lmao.

Same goes for G7/8.

Majority vote without a doubt is able to have a natural inclination towards these qualifying candidates: Spain, Austria, Netherlands, Sweden, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, UAE, Qatar. Far outside of economics or geographic size. Ecological sustainability conference, Tourism, Diplomacy, Major Players Of The International Audience Of 8-9 Billion People, Neighboring Discrepancy Variation To Explain A Global Affair, Modern, Technological Savvy, Oil, Right Now Relevance, Science.

The G20 was basically a hand-me-down for countries that couldn't get into the G8 meetings where world economic, financial, and political decisions are REALLY made excepting China which is not a market economy and is vastly poorer.

Another thing is that US/France/Canada/UK all have the largest Jewish populations in the world and only Japan has few. Germany obviously doesn't have that many anymore but the power of Jewish money is still there. Jews still run the world banking systems and this is reflected in the G8.

A joint Nordic membership. The Nordic economies are very similar and integrated with each other, and combined are the 11th or 12th largest economy in the world, but have no representation in G20.

No point as there already is the European Union represented at the G-20.

Norway isn't in the EU, and only Finland is in the Eurozone.
