This paper compares data on rate of profit for the United States and China, exploring a dialogue between investigations on the average and general rates of profit (classical political economy and its modern versions) and inter-industry differences in the rate of profit (industrial economics). The comparative analysis between USA and China (2007-2014) is presented through the trajectories of national average rates of profit, the differences according to firm size, economic and manufacturing sectors. The data show a mismatch between the national average rate of profit (China has higher rates for all years, but 2014) and the rates of profit for manufacturing (USA have higher sectoral rates of profit for all years, but 2009).
